This Motel 6 makes a good initial impression. The brick building is well cared for and solid. The rooms are large, furnishings were quite new and standard for Motel 6. Little things were noticed - I put some items in the drawer and there was no back on the drawer, there was dust and some hair under the bed, the...

This Motel 6 was part of our drive to the Adirondacks. We chose it for the price and convenience to the Interstate. I generally have OK experiences with Motel 6; in many ways this was one of the better, nicer ones in the chain. But it had a few flaws. Overall, the room was nicely furnished, clean, modern. Nice flat-screen...

We stayed here for two nights at the very beginning of August. The hotel is quiet. It's off the main road (which means you have to travel a few minutes to get to restaurants) but the peacefulness is a good trade off. The rooms themselves were clean, recently remodelled and were a good size that you could move around easily...

It could have been a nightmare. The 3-11 shift desk clerks did a bait and switch. At 10:45pm we pulled in and checked into the hotel. Through Booking.com I ordered a queen room with two beds. On check-in I specifically asked did the room have 2 beds and the desk clerks- both of them said yes. I was livid when...

You get what you pay for, I guess. My husband and I stayed overnight as a rest stop on our trip home from vacation. Well, we should have just kept going. The staff was nice but did not direct us on how to get to our room. We wandered the halls looking for the stairs to get to the second...

Rooms recently updated. My problem with this type of Motel 6 format is there are NO carpets on the floor! Get beyond that and it is an okay property. The best thing about my stay was the customer service. The new manager is Beth and she is fantastic! Very outgoing, friendly and helpful. Kate on the front desk is also...

In the evening of November 04,2013 at about 6p.m. after attending a meeting, I came back to the hotel to find no one at the front desk. There was no one there to challenge anyone who walked into the hotel this leads to an unsafe environment. There was also a heavy cigarette smell in the hall way even though the...

This motel was a reasonably nice Motel 6. It had been recently refreshed, and the room was spacious and clean. The desk clerk was friendly, and they had a microwave in the lobby, which was nice. Otherwise, it was a pretty typical basic motel--not fancy but decent. The location was convenient to downtown Albany and I-90. Overall, it was a...
