We stayed here earlier this week for an early flight out of Hobby. The price was certainly right, and everything else was just fine.
The staff at the front desk were pleasant, professional, and helpful. The lobby was clean and attractive, ditto for our room. The room was quite large (we had a single king), and the sort of modern minimalist decor was nice.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet (we were on the first floor in the back, near the pool).
We spent an enjoyable half hour or so by the pool relaxing before dinner -- birds singing in a nearby tree and just generally pleasant. I mean, yes, you are on a highway next to an airport in a big city, but really, all things considered, it was a nice way to end our trip to Texas.
The only slightly shaky thing was (as others have mentioned) the wifi. We were given a password at the front desk and it worked fine to connect the first time. But then we got dropped from the network. I just tried connecting on a different motel6 network (there are several) and that worked for a while, til eventually we got dropped from that. The bottom line is that it was an extremely minor inconvenience that was easy to work around. No big deal at all. I could always get back on, and we could stay on for relatively long stretches of time.
We were sort of tired of driving, and the restaurant choices nearby are pretty slim. So we just ordered pizza from a local restaurant that had its flyer in the lobby. It arrived promptly and was hot, fresh, and good -- perfect dinner for us.
Anyway, I've had good experiences at Motel 6 in lots of different locations, and this one was among the better ones. I highly recommend it.
