whatever money you think you are saving here will be spent on the removal of the bedbugs from your personal effects. do not expect any help or sympathy from the staff. they are in complete denial, even when you wave the bloody pillowcase in their face. they will refund your room, but only so they can quickly move in the...

We ended up staying here for an IU basketball game. Everything else was booked or 30 miles away. I reserved using Booking.com. I've never used Booking before and won't again as we got the last room available of those that used Booking, and it appeared there was a list of people who had yet to check in. I understand Motel...

This motel smelled awful like smoke. All of my clothes and bags smelled like it for days after returning home. Our toilet did not flush without filling the back up with water to flush. The dead bolt did not lock. Major settling in the building to where the door barely even fit in the frame. We did not see any...

Very clean smells good when you walk in door. Beds comfortable. Laminate floors so no carpet! Easy walking to stadium. We also walked to Nick's after game It isn't a Marriott if small motels had its own category id rate it 5. They work hard to make it pleasant to spend night for around $50 a night

I have often stayed at Motel 6 because it is usually the least expensive place in Bloomington...but prices fluctuate. The rooms are clean, but the decor is basic. I believe they have replaced the carpet in all the rooms with some type of laminate flooring. Clean and modern but not high end.

I was leery of staying here after reading some of the previous reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. The clerk at the front desk was friendly, the room was spacious , the towels and sheets were clean , and I didn't find any bugs! There was no refrigerator or microwave , but I was told one was available with an extra...

The good: Rooms are large, the motel is pet-friendly, and the place is cheap. Wifi works well. The location is great, and the front desk staff could not be any nicer. The bad: No pool. No pictures or decor of any sort, and only one sad little pillow per bed. Burn holes in bedding. No shampoo or conditioner. Worse --...

Booked a room there at $175 a night through Expedia for parents weekend at IU. Yes $175. Found 4 cockroaches in our room. Left right away of course. Shameful! I don't care what the standard of an hotel is, this should never happen

Staff was very nice, but this place is truly disgusting. I couldn't sleep there. Rather than spend the night, we just drove the 4+ hours home. Burn holes in bedding, dirty, outdated, unsafe. I do not recommend this place to anyone, not at any price!!
