“Filthy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Gross! Filthy! Mattress had blood or feces on it and they simply flipped it over. Floor had some gross substance on it. Microwave splattered with food and ramen noodles. Blanket and towels were dirty. I ended up going to the store and buying blankets and disinfecting wipes :( 11 hours from home and no other reasonable rooms in the area were available due to the race in bristol.

Stayed June 2014

Our toilet was stopped up and WE were given a plunger to take care of it ourselves! Ice machine was broken, dryer in laundry was broken, our window (on the 3rd floor) was partially open and we had a very hard time getting it closed! The towels were almost thin enough to see through, the pillows were horrible they were basically folded in half and shoved in a pillow case. No complimentary shampoo or conditioner, although for the price, THAT we didn't mind. The carpet was so dirty we didn't dare walk around barefoot. Most of the staff we came in contact with were friendly and polite with the exception of one night clerk that couldn't be bothered because he was "so busy" but when I came down to the lobby was outside chatting up a girl by the pool! There appeared to be some "shady activity" going on downstairs and in fact, one night in the wee hours the police apparently had to be called. The wifi only worked sporadically and when it did you would lose connection after 5 or 10 minutes. The facilities were in desperate need of some repairs, and the whole place needed a through cleaning!

Horrible rooms. Overwhelming bleach smell throughout the hotel...what were you trying to kill???Had to practically break into the room because the door wouldn't open. Electrical outlets broken, sink wouldn't drain a microwave from prehistoric times...refrigerator froze all beverages, ice machine did not have ice for the population..and the list goes on. We left a day early so as not to catch anything. The premium prices were just due to the race, because they knew they had you. Had to buy fabreeze and Lysol to feel safe. Would NEVER stay here again.

Very basic, needs updating, but still clean. Small rooms, but for 1 night as a stop over it is a good place. Food nearby, housekeeping seemed lacking as dirty linens were in the hall when we arrived and same linens there when we left. Same with food in the hall from take out. Location seemed safe and secure enough.

Very nice stay - I've stayed in "proper" hotels considerably worse than this motel! Incredibly friendly staff, very clean rooms which were in great condition. A great stopping off point for travellers - we were on the way from Washington to Tennessee.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

For 49.99 +tax, my expectations weren't that high. I had stayed at the Red Roof Inn on my previous trip to Johnson City, which is 2 buildings over, and that was about $30 more a night. The Motel 6 had more amenities though, which I found incredibly surprising. I had only planned to stay 1 night here, but ended up staying 2.5 days. I was happy with the room. Big bed, fridge, and microwave. The carpets had obviously been cleaned right before my stay, so the room smelled amazing every time I walked in. The staff was friendly. There was a laundry room, exercise room, and a business center with computer. I didn't use any of those but it was nice that they had them. Oh, and the location is perfect. There is so much that is around this hotel. I would definitely stay here on my next trip.

The hotel felt as though it was on its last leg of existence and security a joke. All the doors, from lobby to the room, were difficult to open hanging and dragging off their hinges. The elevator was questionable as the elevator floor was not level with the hallway. The steps were outside, the walkway to the steps went across a gravel area, a chair was located there where different people were seen sitting smoking; who they were is anyone’s guess (this did not produce a safe environment). Going up the stairs there were days old beer cans overflowing the trash can and cigarette butts and ashes on the steps (all never cleaned during our stay). The third floor entry walkway was unleveled and the external door never locked (extremely poor security and inviting for unwanted guest). Pulling hard on the room door it opened but to my surprise the latch plate was pried off leaving only the bent and open metal door frame to lock the door. Even locked the door had a half inch play. With real effort, the room door opened and closed as it was sagging hung badly on the frame. Adjusting the AC/heat temp knob was the most secure item in the hotel; it was like opening a childproof bottle. The refrigerator made noises that woke us up throughout the night, bath sink stopper was broken. The shower curtain rod had been ripped out of the wall and appeared to have been relocated several times with torn wallpaper and holes in the exposed sheetrock. Towels and washcloths were very thin and rough. The ice machine produced only ½ ice bucket worth of ice. On the bright side, the carpet was clean; however, that was short lived as there was severe mold around window and slight mold in shower.

Room Tip: Check the room before checking in.
