          Very much ok. Funny smell in rooms. Functional to say the least. Had to pay for wife which is very much gone out of fashion. Whole facility needs a good cleaning. Seating around pool was functional and again needed cleaning. Would not recommend this motel.More

          The rooms are really modern, reminding of hotels in Europe. I had a hard time believing this is a Motel 6. Really clean. Has a pool. Wifi is paid..$2.99. HD Television with HBO. Bring your own shampoo though.
