Not all Motel 6's are created equal. The service seems to be a result of the individuals you happen to get that day and the quality of the room and building a function of how old it is.

This motel is cheap, and for good reason. It's older, shabby and has bugs. The staff does their job but just barely.

But what do you expect for the least expensive in town? It's like camping, with a bathroom and a roof over your head. Maybe the new owners of Motel 6 will improve all the locations, but then the price will have to go up.

When arriving, my husband and I dropped off our luggage to find a "hospital size room". We flipped the channels abit before heading out to our activities. I decided to leave the TV on due to the location not being the best. When we returned LATER in the night, we found the remote not at the place it was left and the TV off!! Hmm...room service or unexpected guests past 7PM??
The next morning...we found the bathroom towels had orange stains as the plubming/drainage system was a horrible mess. Lefs just say, we HAD to shower and brush our teeth and wait a about 10 mins for it to drain. There was noticable hair in the shower from someones previous stay - DISGUTING!
We could not stand this, I we HAD to get out of there quick! I told the manager at the front desk, and after not taking responsibility for this mess, he suggested he would let the housekeeping know about it and get it fixed. How about you tell them this BEFORE someone stays and get it cleaned BEFORE?!?!
IF HYGIENE IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

The Hampton Inn was PARADISE! :)

Left my room at 8 a.m. - on returning to my room at 9 p.m. I found the door propped open, and the lights on. It had been open and unlocked all day! My suitcase, valuables and clothing were "Open to the Public" for 12 hours!!!

After initially saying it was the housekeeper's fault, he manager said, "We'll give you 10% off one day." THAT'S FOUR BUCKS!!! After 20 minutes of arguing, mentioning the BBB and the corporate franchise, the next day he had the housekeeper leave a note saying they would allow $25. (WHICH YOU KNOW CAME OUT OF HER SALARY!!!)

I would not recommend this place. Ants prevalent, walls thin, upstairs room noise!!!

8 of us booked 4 rooms. Arrived tired and desk clerk did a great job of checking us in quickly and giving us directions to a convenience store. He even switched the TV to PSU bowl game for us to watch while checking in. We asked for rooms away from the freeway and had a very quiet night. Easy to access the freeway and get on the way in the morning.

This has gotta be the best Motel 6 I've ever stayed at. There is a refrigerator and high-speed internet in every room. Everything was clean and comfortable.

We travel to Mexico alot and we always stay at this hotel. The best thing about it is inside rooms and it's right off the interstate. Because it is on the interstate it can be a little loud on that side of the building so request if possible on the left side of the building. It is a good motel if you need a great place to sleep. Oh and water pressure is great with huge tubs to soak in.

  • Liked — Inside rooms, great location
  • Disliked — Some noise because of interstate
