First, let me date this so others can have a reference time when reading all of these reviews I stayed at this location June 2, 2012. After working a 16 hour day I needed a place with a shower & a bed for 3 nights rather than driving over an hour home only to turn around in 3 hours and...

I stayed there last week with my fiancee, we checked in and she went to the room and a went back to work for a couple hrs. When I got to the room I was discussed the sheets were dirty with holes in them, when you walked on the carpet your shoes got dirty. I called the front desk and...

I've gone through some rough times where I was homeless and lived at Motel 6 for a while. The staff were always polite. Nobody ever looked down on me or mistreated me. I never had any problems with anybody. The rooms were always clean. There was also free wifi which came in very useful because I was attending online college...

I stayed there a short time back. I got a jacuzzi room with a king bed for the night, just to get away from home for an evening and relax with my fiancee. First, our bedsheets had various fresh looking stains. When I called the front desk to request a change to clean sheets, the woman gave me quite the...

I added the "plus" to the name. This hotel is way beyond the usual quality of the Motel 6 chain. I was impressed the moment i drove onto the property.Palatial lobby, free wi-fi, and ample parking with a drive up check in window. (How cool is that?) The room boasts the standard Motel 6 furnishings. (you know, no clock, cheesy...

The outside looks nothing like a classic Motel 6, and the rooms are amazing. I am so impressed with this location that it will be the only place I stay when in the Detroit area. I stayed in room 121. The only downfall was that it reeked of smoke, but otherwise was a beautiful room with a recliner, a workdesk,...

Any time I goto the Motor City I stay here. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is good, and it's a great location off of I-75 and a few minutes outside of the city. You don't have to worry about the city and the outskirts, but it's still close. Not to mention it's an excellent value. I would...
