Arrived to find the entire front area of hotel swarmed with police and a female officer in bullet proof vest in lobby. Very rough area. It was late and I was traveling with my child and couldn't drive another mile. I had made reservations online weeks earlier and what I found did not match what was advertised online. Room had...

Stayed here on a quick get away. Really clean and nice.. The outside was well lite and it seemed safe.. it's in a descent location near a busy area. Not far from multiple restraunts, shopping and entertainment. I would stay here again..

Almost poisoned!!! Check in after cruise vacation with family, bed bugs and broken AC in first room, so we were moved, should've left but exhausted from drive. Had to leave bags in car for fear of bugs, creeps hanging out hitting on me outside. Got in elevator with husband and 3 other guests, and as soon as elevator shut, we...

Let me start with the good part: no carpets in the room. Now, the bad part: lobby smelled like cigarette smoke, sketchy characters loitered in the reception area, elevator was unclean and smelled horrible, clean bath towel had pubic hair, crying baby and heated arguments heard from adjoining rooms, etc. I didn't feel safe at this hotel and regretted risking...

Enjoyed the rooms as they are more updated than other hotels in that price range. Just needed an iron but I enjoyed my hotel stay. The outside was quiet in the parking lot and hotel staff was very friendly.

So... I'll start off by saying of you want the cheapest pet friendly hotel off the interstate this will work. The hotel could have been cleaner and the staff wasn't super friendly bit of was late when I rolled in so o could have done without the friendly part anyways. Things the hotel couldn't help that were terrible was the...

I have visit several Motel 6 but this one here is not very well manage at all. The house keepers have no respect for the customer who are staying there trying to rest. They were yelling and screaming at each other from room to room trying to get each other attention. Instead of walking to tell each other what they...

Without a doubt this is the worst hotel I've ever had the unfortunate luck to be stuck in. The walls of the rooms are thin as paper and you can hear every sound both inside and outside of the building. The night I was there the fire alarm went off at least 10 times because someone was smoking in the...
