I only stayed one night but the room was very inexpensive and clean. Plus I enjoyed the fact that they had free coffee 24 hours a day. The staff was very helpful with finding restaurants and other things near the hotel I could get my dump truck into.

I have stayed at several hotels and found this one to be the best by far. The staff is always a step ahead, very courteous, efficient, and always willing to assist. I was very impressed with the quality of service and felt like I was right at home. It's a great place to stay. Keep up the great work!

This hotel has been amazing! Not only are the amenities excellent, but the staff is awesome! From Sophia to Rick to Albert to Crystal and Luis have all gone above and beyond their job. Always helpful, courteous, and hospitable. The maintenance guy has also been great. I wouldn't recommend staying anywhere else in McAllen! The pool is a plus!

Stayed for two nights, the room we stayed in was very clean. Staff was nice and helpful, check in/out was fast and easy. Every time we stay in McAllen we will stay in this Motel 6. Everything was just as advertised, the prices for the rooms is fair. We were very happy with our experience, hope to stay there again...

I went to McAllen with my wife and friends for shopping. We spent one night only there and I must say this motel is the perfect choice if you are having this kind of short trips, where you need just a place to sleep after being out the whole day. The rooms are spacious and are equipped with air conditioning....

The little machine that activates the room keys was broken. I understand that it was not in the control of the front desk clerk, but she could have steered her frustration somewhere else. Also, the elevator wasn't working both days of my stay. I was walked to my room through the stair terminal by a guy who I couldn't even...

“RUN fast and far. I would recommend the staybridge suites by the airport. Might cost more but is well worth the money compared to what you get here.”
