“OMG”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

On a high note, the Japanese man was very kind. It was late and again on my long journey I had to find a MOTEL for my dogs and me. It was now almost midnight way to late to be driving. I found this motel and HAD to take it. The first room he recommended had NO parking at all let alone in front of my room which i requested so back to the lobby i went. The second room had one of the beds taken apart! and only a base remained so back to the lobby i went again. He apologised blamed it on house keeping which was fine. So attempt #3 turned out ok..The rooms are so dirty so out of date, cracked bubbled toilet seats and just gross. No way I was sleeping under the covers.. I slept in my clothes on top of the bed. The internet code didn't work.. i phoned him 3x now 1am and he blamed it on my computer..? In the morning I was so anxious to leave I didn't even wash my face I just packed up the dogs and fled!

First, we do not like making harsh reviews but this had to be said.

The good is David is a really nice owner/operator. He is pleasant, direct, showed us our room in the snow and we'd stay here again believing our room had to be a freak anomaly but we'd preview the room before offering a credit card next time.

The exterior of the motel, office, parking lot and area was flawless and perfect for a Motel 6. The rates were very fair parking adequate and again, the Owner/Operator was great upon registering. The motel is directly across the street from I-5 and has great access yet was extremely noisy from our room - all night long with semi trucks and trains.

Once in our room, the overwhelming intense stench of cigarette smoke was the strongest my wife & I have ever experienced, anywhere in the world we've traveled. The carpets were absolutely filthy with ground in food, gum, stains, spills, tons of cigarette burn wholes throughout the entire room and a vacuum had not been run under the bed ever as it had over an inch of standing dust, hair, environmental, etc.. There were long black hairs in the shower/tub floor, the tub had cigarette burn marks on the top rail, there was urine on the toilet and feces under the toilet seat. The sinks were chipped badly & rusting, one of the lamps did not work, one of the electrical outlets was non functional and there was no coffee maker or refrigerator in the room. One of the two bed linens/sheets were stained with what appeared to be blood/coffee/??? and the entry carpet was wet 4' in the front door due to the snow/rain where entry rugs or carpets should have been placed or a note not to take your shoes off. We were all so uncomfortable with the lack of cleanliness of the room that we all slept in our clothes and only took our shoes off to get into bed after my son made the mistake of taking his shoes off soaking his socks from the previous guests that stayed.

If the room / motel was updated, this could have been a 3-4 star motel stay for travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the motel are quietest. North & South side rooms are loudest. Previe...

This is a converted motel to motel6, we stayed here a few years ago when it was an independent. It has VERY LARGE rooms, and a Fitness room(not usually found in Motel 6s) AND FREE INTERNET. Large, looks like 28" Televisions, AND A BATHTUB.

Some rooms have microwaves and Fridges.

Good convenient location off I-5 and Pet friendly.

I stayed here with my family, and we were looking for a clean, quiet room. Not found - as there were people talking / shouting / loughing through the walls the whole (!!) night. The carpet was really not new, and there was no coffee maker in the room, although this was mentioned in the brochure. Next time at a Motel 6, I will take a look at the room before checking in ....

I was trying to make it to Tacoma, but was just too tired. Pulled off I-5 and paid the rack rate of $55. Two clean queen beds, lots of towels, and hot shower made it good enough by my book. There was a bit of gang-type graffiti on the shower enclosure, and the TV wasn't a flat screen, but the bed and shower were fine.

Room Tip: When staying at a cheap motel, I've been told to stay on the 2nd floor. Meth cookers like the 1s...

I spent less money staying in a hole in the wall and it was beautiful by comparison! 5 minutes after we got there someone from the front desk was banging on the door saying they had to put the smoke detector back up. Why was it down? No coffee maker, burns in the blankets, stains in the toilet. WIFI? Right! I had to go to McDonalds across the highway to get wifi! This place is a joke. Burn it and don't bother rebuilding!

Room Tip: Don't bother wasting your money, sleep in your car instead!

As another reviewer said, this property looks fine enough from the outside, but once we got into our room, it was a different story. The paint on the walls was chipped and peeling, there were mysterious lumps under the carpet in several places, the smoke detector was hanging by the wires, and the microwave and fridge were dented up and dingy. The towels were thin and cheap, and there were stains on the linens. The bed and pillows were terribly uncomfortable - I don't expect much from a cheap motel, but this was even worse than usual. We came down for a concert at the Clark County Fairgrounds, but should we do so again, we will choose a different motel even if we have to pay a little more.
