“wouldnt advise staying in this dump”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

sounded like i had a wild elephant in heat above our room, dogs in the room next to us were scratching the wall, someones tv was left on past midnight with the volume all the way up so i told the desk clerk about it and she decided to call my room knowing i had a sleeping baby in it, i finally had enough around 1:00 am and checked out couldnt believe i actually got my money back i wasnt even going to ask for a refund i just wanted to be out of the place. so i canceled all plans in galveston and drove back home that night, it took 4 hours to get home but beats staying in that dump.

I've stayed numerous Motel 6's over the years. This was by far the worst Motel 6 in their collection. Did you every go big fraternity parties in college? If so, did you ever go in the basement during the parties? That is what this place smelled like. Musty air, old beer, & nicotine We had two alleged non-smoking rooms rooms and both smelled that way. There was black mold along the wall where they ripped out the bathtubs and put in "modern Euro showers" in an effort to modernize this worn out, depressing property. Every morning for 5 days we would be rudely awakened at 6AM by the safety backup beeper of a contractors truck. The pool was opaque, as if they reclaimed the grey water from the laundry and shunted it into the pools plumbing. It never cleared during our stay. Skip this property and pay the extra $20/ night for the Super 8 where you'll still save money over the $300+ places but won't have to tell the kids to wear flip flops into the shower. And you'll sleep better knowing you don't have to worry about getting Legionnaires disease from the AC.

Room Tip: Stay at the Super 8.

We had just from vactation in galveston the hotel was nice and clean. I am in a wheelchair a couldn't get up the stairs so they were able to put us in a downstairs unit. It was so clean the bed were ok but we bought extra pillows to lay on. The only problem that they have is the slant parking on bordway it feels like the car going to roll forward when the break is on all in all we will stay there again.

We booked a double room on an online site a week before our arrival date. When we arrived, they had no double rooms and instead they gave us a single room that reeked of smoke and was the size of a closet. There was no way my husband and three kids could sleep there, and it being a holiday weekend, there were no rooms anywhere else within 20 miles. Their reasoning was that it was our fault for not booking with Motel 6 directly. They certainly lost my business, never again!!

I decided to make a review because after reading some that others had left we almost didn't book a room here. We did reserve the room but decided to go check it out first before deciding whether or not to stay. Yes, the rooms are a little bit small. No, there isn't a coffee maker in the room ( I wish there had of been but I did just fine going to the office where they had fresh coffee made) No, there isn't any carpet on the floor it was lineoleum. We just needed a place to rest that night and to take a shower the next morning so the motel was just fine for that purpose. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was small but it was fine.The pool was nice and the motel was well kept. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and we will most certainly stay there again. This is "Our" opinion of this motel, I have shared the photos I took of the room so that you can form your own opinion. The price was great considering we weren't in the room except to sleep and shower AND it was close to the freeway and away from all the traffic.

My husband booked a room here because the hotel we usually stay was full. We were celebrating our 11th day we met anniv.I read bad reviews on here and was nervous, but everything was great. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean.

I found Motel 6 through one of the travel sites. It was the least expensive "brand" motel. We decided to stay there so we had more available funds for sight-seeing. The travel website said free wi-fi, queen sized bed and outdoor pool. It is a distance from most of the things we wanted to do, but overall I figured it would be ok. The room is tiny. The bed is a thin mattress on a plywood platform. Sturdy, but hard as a rock. The bathroom was very large, especially compared to the room. But the space was under-utilized. Small corner shower, I am a farily small person and I felt crowded. The wi-fi is $2.99 per day, not free, and is very slow. Next time I will spend the extra money to get a decent room.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
