One of the dirtiest rooms I have stayed in. The carpet was really yucky, so bad I didn't really want my dogs on it. There were multiple wet spots on the carpet when we first went in the room. I ended up going to the store to buy bleach spray and wipes. Also bought Fabreeze because this non-smoking room smelled... More

I was lucky to call and there be a room available especially during the recent Louisiana floods. The young lady at the front desk was friendly and accommodating. Room rates were reasonable.

This motel is dirty. Dirty carpet, dirty blankets, dirty shower curtain. The smoke detector was hanging of the wall. The toilet kept flushing during the night. There was a really bad smell in the room. The outside felt unsafe. Bad wifi.

We were traveling and we were looking for "pet" friendly hotels. We identified this one and when we arrived the lobby was empty....very little furnishings....however the lady at the desk was very friendly. We obtained our room and what a shock.....the person next door left the TV on loud for her pets. It was so loud that after thinking she... More

I'm not sure what kind of property this was before Motel 6 took it over, but it's unique! It's a bit hard to find -- on a side road behind a sports field off University Avenue, and the entrance road is almost hidden. I didn't see a sign marking the office, either. Look for the four columns painted as musicians... More
