Reviewed 11 February 2009

I was looking for a hotel new year's eve 2008. Little choice with the gator bowl on the first. Checked in and the first room they gave me had a toilet that was constantly flushing. The second room had a bed that was broken, a lock on the door that looked like it had been jimmied, and no soap. The staff was nice but otherwise it was pretty bad.

I stayed at several Motels 6 during my Southern road trip. This one was the least nice of those I visited.

I have no illusions about what a Motel 6 will be like. When I book at a Motel 6, I’m not there for amenities, a great pool, or a sumptuous breakfast buffet. I’m there to sleep and shower.

Still, no matter how simple a motel room may be, I do expect that it be well maintained.

For the most part, the Jacksonville Motel 6 was. The motel’s exterior was well lighted and tidy. The room and bathroom were clean, and the bed was comfortable and free of bed bugs and other unsavory aspects. However, the floor gave me cause for alarm.

The floor? Huh?

To clarify, the carpet appeared to be clean, even though it seemed old. What was alarming was that large parts of the floor seemed to large pieces of carpeted plywood that covered who knows what. It was disturbing to hear hollow thunks as I traipsed across portions of the floor and feel the dip and slight bounciness of plywood. I wasn’t sure what that plywood was covering, and really, I didn’t want to know. I made sure to wear my flip-flops at all times in that room, because I wasn’t sure whether or not I’d step in the wrong spot and be poked by something.

Other than the suspect floor, the room was fine. I was happy with the ample electrical sockets, since I had a cell phone, a Bluetooth earpiece, a laptop, and a camera battery to charge in addition to a hair dryer and flatiron to use. There were many places to eat within a five minute drive of the motel, and the surrounding area was very nice. I felt safe, and as a woman traveling alone, that meant a lot.

I have to also give a shout out to the guy at the front desk. He was so friendly and helpful, and his affable manner was genuine. Excellent guest service!

This MOTEL-6 definitely exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly, the room was spotless and quiet(although Sun Night) It's just far enough off I-95 so traffic noise isn't a problem. I've stayed at Hilton Garden Inns that weren't this clean before and for more than double the price. I'm one of the first people to tell everyone when a place is lousy. This is one time I made it a point to post here on Trip Advisor. Okay, they weren't down feathered pillows and mattresses, but nothing you'd expect for $39 bucks a nite. Highly Recommended.

I've been staying in this particular 6 for 1-3 day stays about 3 times a year for the last 4 years. It's come a long way, but still could use some improvement. Rooms are usually clean, bathrooms are always clean. TVs have always worked. Linens are sometimes a bit worn/snaggled. Maid service is HIGHLY variable - sometimes like a Hilton, sometimes none at all. The desk is always cooperative about handing out soap, towels, toilet paper, etc. Parking lot security greatly improved over last year - no "loiterers" at 3 AM. General decor much improved in the rooms that have been renovated.
Not a particularly pleasant place to stay, but adequate and well-priced. Excellent location.
Note: LaQuinta across the street is 2x more expensive. After two visits, both with dirty rooms, I've stayed with the 6.

The staff is polite and friendly. That's about the only nice thing I can say about this place.

The room was falling apart. The curtains had a burn mark. All the baseboards were separating from the walls. The one mattress had a hole chewed through the edge. There was a smooshed roach on the wall, another dead one 500x the size on the pavement outside.

They have a resident stray cat, who is cute and all, but clearly flea-ridden. He was meowing at our door on the second day and even managed to dart into the room and under the bed.

I'm guessing it's a party motel. I think the people trying to break down our door at 3 AM were looking for a party. After a few minutes they realized they had the wrong room.

The last day we checked out 2 hours early. After waking up and seeing a live roach crawling up the wall next to me we decided we'd had enough.

We stayed here as cash strapped, weary house-hunters. We had travelled from out of town to close on our first home. This location is convenient to I-95. Clean, efficient, no-frills, yet feels safe. A great deal at the price.
