Give them an A for effort in this University town. In process of remodeling. Rooms are clean and basic (soap but no shampoo for shower). Front desk was friendly and accomodating. Pet friendly! WiFi worked well. Elevator for those of us with bad knees. Clerk mentioned coffee but no breakfast. Rate low but I've stayed in many places at same...

My wife and I was in town for the weekend. We wanted a cheap room, because we Had plans to stay with family, but I'm just past the days off staying with mom and dad. We decided on this Motel 6 due to hearing about the remodeled rooms and great low price of $60. The remodeled rooms were great with...

We used the trip advisor reservation service. $71/ night. I chose the assistance room...handicap. Assumed it would be on first floor. Actually on third. No matter, elevator in lobby. I'd skip that strategy if I were you. Linoleum tile in every room. The staff was so nice. I asked the owner to print two e-tickets I purchased and he gladly...

Asked for one of the new/updated rooms at check-in and we were accommodated :)....although a little "cheap looking", the updated room was very nice compared to the older rooms (which we had to stay in the year before). I love the hard floors (I think all hotels should have these). There was a nice fridge and microwave in the room...

I'm surprised that travelers commented on the remodeling because this hotel looks brand new like it just got built. I had a hard time deciding what to rate it. For a $50 a night motel, you can't expect alot. But this Motel 6 was definitely excellent compared to the normal motels you find, however when you are comparing it to...

I stayed on the first floor. The room was spacious and neat. Floor was dirty but hardwood. I've been to many motel sixes and this one was top notch. Amazing place. I'd recommend it to everybody. It's cheaply priced too.

I happened to have a pleasant experience here. I happened to get one of the updated rooms, and it was sweet. You never find Hardwood Floors in a hotel, but, this one had them. A nice sitting area, bed was HUUUUUGE. It was also so convenient, you had stores, restaurants right at your disposal, the hotel staff was also very...

I stayed here this past weekend, one night, Friday, June 13. The motel 6 website for this particular location is VERY misleading. ALL the pictures on the website only show pics of the updated rooms and it would lead you think they ALL look this way. Not the case. As it turns out, only the third floor is updated at...

“On Veterans Parkway, off I-55 at exit 167, this is a good bargain. There are two Motel 6 properties in the Normal-Bloomington area. This one is good.Don't know anything about the other. Ask for a room on the back side of the building away from Veterans Parkway, if possible. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a great dinner at Los Potrillos Mexican restaurant. We could walk there, a great deal with 12 inches of snow and 20+ mile/hr wind.”

“Because of the reviews of other travelers, I selected the third floor. The room was good. I have not checked out rooms on the other floors, although at check in, the clerk asked people staying on other floors if they wanted to look at their room before booking. This seems to indicated a problem with rooms on the lower floors and a lot of complaints.”
