“Very very bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

The mattress when 2 are trying to sleep in it you roll to the center as it is so old & worn. When entering the room there is this awful smell,never could figure out what it was! The shower is old & there is no water pressure! So don't think about using the sink or shower! They give you 15 minutes to view the room & decide whether you want to stay, that should have said run...but we just arrived at 1 am & did not want to hassle finding another at that time.

Room Tip: Don't bother

Ok so we needed a clean place to stay and cheap because we were only driving half way to where we were going to stay in the mountains and then the rest of the way the next day. So I found Motel 6 online and booked us a room It was the cheapest place I could find and though it had few perks I figured as long as it was clean I was ok with it. We were also traveling with a dog and we had to have a pet friendly place to stay. So When we called they told us they took pets no problem and there was no pet fee. When we got there we were told only little dogs under twenty pounds. Ok so I had a problem with this because our dog is large and they should have told me this when I called to make the reservations. So I guess since who ever I talked to over the phone did not tell me this she told me that it was ok as long as I kept the dog in the room and did not play with him outside it was fine. Over all it was ok nothing to brag about. It had clean sheets and that is all you can expect for the price. But I would say it was not a roach hotel by no means.

We had 3 rooms for our extended family and it was overall a terrible experience. First the front desk person was incompetent and it took 30 minutes just to get checked in. The hallways smelled terribly only beaten for smelliness by the room. The room had dirty carpet disgusting carpet. There was no clock, no shampoo, one light didn't work. In the middle of the night my brother suffered an asthma attack from something in the room and he spent the rest of the night driving around. People using the pool were swimming in their underwear. Very scary place.

Before I list the bad, here is the good. The Motel in Utica,New York has a nice set of staff. That is all the nice I can say. Everything else was horrible. The rooms were shameful to look at though the sheets smell cleaned it had stains along with the pillowcases. The Walls and doors had been peeled of their paint. My mother found a used condom by the night stand. That should tell you how thorough the cleaning crew is.The room was despicable. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Not even a Homeless person deserves that kind of disservice. Motel 6 you will never get my service again.

Room Tip: When looking for a nice hotel choose elsewhere. Motel 6 on Utica is no destination for tourist or ne...

Had to stay here because we arrived late and had no choice. Should have slept in the car! The room was disgusting! The floor had unidentifiable stains on it, the bedding had cigarette holes everywhere. It was dirty and smelly! Avoid it like the plague!!!!

Room Tip: stay anywhere else!

1. The management is awful
2. They do not have weekly rates - manager told me they discontinued it because their clientele is so bad
3. The rooms smell moldy unless the air conditioning is cranked
4. I was told to park my car in front of my room window so I could keep an eye on it
5. My clothes were stolen from the dryer and when I informed the front desk attendent, she laughed. They offered no assistance. We filed a police report.

STAY somewhere else!

I hate this motel so much! It was the most discusting notel on Earth! We didn't plan to stay at a hotel but we got tired of driving and had no choice but to stop. The only hotel we found was a MOTEL. We've stayed at different motels and they were great. But this one was.. oh my gosh. I found three crawling bugs under the bed and in the bath tub I found several little ones. The drain was cloged and it nearly flooded the bathtub overnight while the water was slightly dripping. No coffee in the morning, not even inside the lobby. Oh I would pay $100 bucks just to get some in the room for cryin out loud! The mattresses were broken and loud and I did not get enough sleep for the ride to our REAL hotel. Worst time ever. I only stayed there for one night, but it was awful. No soap set in the bathtup so I had to walk all the way around the motel to get some at the lobby. The lady at the desk was rude and ignorant. All she wanted was for me to leave un-happy losing my money. I paid a lot for extras and didn't get what it was worth. The sink was dirty and filled with stains. I stayed in Georgia (don't remember when) and found ciggeret buds on the floor. DO NOT STAY AT MOTEL 6. Oh, and the pool was dirty and green. I don't expect anyone to go swimming. At the time, it was summer. It should've been clean.
