I made a reservation over the phone with the Motel 6 up the road from this one (Wanamaker Rd.) only to get there and they don't have any rooms. After finding that all the other hotels on that street are booked as well, we try this Motel 6 (Fairlawn Rd.). We get here and they inform us that they're only taking cash as their system is down, that the wifi is down, as well as the phone. We had to drive around to find somewhere we could get cash at midnight as we are traveling from California and our bank isn't out here. We get to our non-smoking room (which is more expensive than the reservation we had made with the other motel 6) to find it reeks of cigarette smoke (I have asthma and its really aggravating my lungs), the room is FREEZING, the carpet is filthy, the walls are dirty, and to top it all off, there were roaches in the bed!!! After spending an hour trying to get a hotel room, with our 3 cats after being on the road all day, we put the cats in the room and went to find food at 1 AM. We would have went back to the office to get our refund right away, but didn't realize there were roaches in the bed until we got back from getting food. Plus its 1 AM and every other hotel in the area either seems to be booked or cost $100 a night. I am ready to just leave and sleep in the car, but its not really an option since we have our cats with us. So much for getting a good nights sleep before another day on the road tomorrow, I will be up all night making sure I don't have roaches crawling on me in the middle of the night. If I could give this 0 stars, I would. Don't waste your time or money on this dump! Oh, also, the rooms look NOTHING like they do on the website. The website shows them all updated and nice...definitely not the case!!! We always stay at motel 6 when we are traveling and have never encountered one as bad as this. I am usually pleasantly surprised by some of our rooms at motel 6s across the country, but this makes me never want to stay at one again. After making a reservation at one and getting a confirmation email, only to get turned away quite rudely and end up in a horrible room with NO amenities that cost me more, I never want to deal with Motel 6 again!
