The bath towels had stains on them. As well as my sheet when i went to open it. I wiped everything down with Clorox wipes and after looking at the wipes they were black. The bathroom light fixtures were hanging off the ceiling. The 3 nights we were there they only cleaned the trash in the trash can. The floors...

We stayed here last week. We arrived a little early, before 3pm, so we had to wait for our room to be available, which would have been fine except the lobby of the motel was dirty and rundown, and I've seen cleaner restrooms in truck stops. Our room was in a different building than the hotel lobby. The entrance door...

Stopped here after a brief stop for a room up the road. That place was a DUMP, so here we are. Greated w/ smile by Gabi at the front desk. First floor room close to the front desk was clean and a good size. The hallway to the room was like an oven, so hot. Thankfully, the room A/C was...

I recently stayed overnight at the Motel 6 in Waukegan Illinois near Illinois Beach State Park. My room was simple and spotless. There is even a small refrigerator and microwave which was a pleasant surprise. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is not continental breakfast but there was fresh coffee. If you're...

This was an excellent experience, this Motel 6 has been remodeled and the staff was very helpful & friendly. Very clean, I will certainly stay here again when traveling to Six Flags just 3.1 miles from the theme park, easy access to Chicago O'hare International Airport.

Easily one of the worst hotel rooms I've ever had in 30yrs. If you want to go to a place and get depressed this is it. It's unkept, seedy and in a general state of disrepair. Management quit caring a while ago. Lots of shady characters hanging out in the parking lot and around the doorways at night doesn't make...

the room had a reasonable price. However the room had a queen size bed instead of the king size bed that I made a reservation for. This is not the first time that I haven't received the room that I requested. The amenities are fine, but the door had a dead bolt lock, which wasn't able to lock. The front...

I was really scared to stay there. It had a lot of bad reviews. I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. My room was very clean. Brand new hardwood floors. Looked like a new bedspread also. There was one bad thing. It did still smell of smoke. Hallways need some updating. They were painting. If you don't mind taking...

We were in town for my nephews graduation from boot camp and selected this hotel due to it's close proximity to the base and we were sold on the "free shuttle" service to graduation thinking that would be easier than driving on base. We initially booked 2 nights and the clerk was very nice as we were checking in late...

Reserved two rooms for two nights. Got one room for two nights and was charged for both. When trying to rectify the situation with staff, treated with horrible disrespect and met refusal to even help the situation. Staff member was extremely disrespectful to my visually impaired mother. Linens had cigarette burns in them. The "non-smoking" room smelled heavily of air...
