Motel 6 Winchester

Reviewed 7 August 2013

So some reviewers said that the place looks new... Yes, it has been renovated, but what a terrible job they have done. Concrete on the sidewalks is crumbling. Mirrors in the room are crooked. The vinyl floor is so uneven, you can use it as a slide. There is no shampoo in the bathroom. The mattresses are probably the worst I've ever slept on. The room was non-smoking, but the a/c unit was sucking in the air that reeked of smoke, although I did not see anyone smoking outside. And did I mention the lawn? It's covered with dog poop (the motel is pet-friendly). Disgusting!!!

And then there's the staff. The gentleman at the front desk in the evening was quite nice, but his colleague in the morning was an entirely different story. As I came in to return the keycards, he and his friends/relatives were speaking their native language and did not acknowledge me when I dropped off the cards. They did not greet me as I said hi/bye although they all made eye contact with me. Clearly, they didn't care very much about their guests.

The worst, least inviting motel we have stayed at in decades. Absolutely no amenities in the room, except one bar of soap. No tissues, no coffee, no nothing.Not a single picture on walls. Refrig wasn't even plugged in. Two very hard plastic chairs, no place to put suitcases except on floor. Linoleum floor. We drove around the Motel 6 once trying to find the office, and thought it was closed. Very grim office. The most pleasant thing I could say about the motel clerk was that he was not rude.When asked if there was a swimming pool, his answer was "I wish". Coffee only served in the morning in the office, 100 yards from our room. My family agreed that Tom Bodeck can turn the light off for us. Never again at Motel 6. Certainly never again at Winchester, VA Motel 6.

Room Tip: Go to the next motel in town!

We called for a room at the last min (10.00 more than online rates..oh well). Loved the modern decor. When found about a half inch of water and 3 feet wide water puddle in our room coming from the refrigerator and going under the bed. We were so tired that we just threw a towel over it (11pm, two young children). All night we heard loud noises and were awaken several times. It sounded as if the renovations were being done at night. Our toddler woke up each time. Maybe it would have been better in a different room, under different circumstances but in our situation, we would have been better off trying to make the last leg of the trip. Woke up tired and to more water accumulating on the floor.

On a more positive note, I did like the firm mattress. Just didn't get to sleep much on it due to the loud bangs.

Room Tip: We had room 115 on the back, not sure if we just had loud neighbors or if there was construction goi...

On July 6th, we found this motel on the hotel magazine at the Virginia welcome center. We called to see if they had a room available and they did. This motel is under complete renovation and we were doubtful as we drove up with all the workers gear and equipment around. The desk clerk was extremely helpful in recommending a choice of restaurants (see review of I J Canns American Grill).
The room was a complete surprise with the scent of a new home. Everything was new and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and I had the feeling I was one of the first to use the shower as the bathroom was immaculate. The exterior doors are locked after 11 PM to ensure security although the area was quite upscale and safe.
I had the best nights sleep of the entire trip.

Room Tip: I don't think they have a bad room.

This hotel has been given a modernization with some really cool deco-style rooms. The floors are tile so if you bring your pooch you get the pitter patter of your favorite paws. (It was cute) The pet rest area was a nice large grassy area for pets to do thier buisness but not all pet owners have been responsible and cleaned up after thier pets so watch your step. The people where friendly, rooms where clean...very no fuss inexpensive clean, comfortable and safe..close to Old Town Winchester and VA Wine Country.

Room Tip: The bottom floor rooms are easy access and relatively quiet. Take your dog! They need a vacation too...

We requested a ground floor, non-smoking room with a king bed and that is exactly what we got. We were also placed at the end of an interior hallway, so that we would be right next to an exterior door. We were able to conveniently walk our dog, without any disturbances. Andrew, the reservation clerk was personable and helped us to decide upon 1 of the 4 restaurants we were interested in visiting for dinner. He had been to each of them previously. This Motel 6 complex is conveniently located, and easy to find. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable.
