BEWARE! They did not want to honor the reservation rate.

We reserved our rooms 2 months before our trip and when we finally got there, the front desk was refusing to honor the reservation. They said it was a busy time for them and wanted more $$$ for the rooms than what we had reserved them for. After much arguing, they conceded to the reserved rate. How could they possibly think that was okay to do and how many people have they done that to and got away with it? Will NEVER go there again. On the flip side, the diner across the street is awesome!

Clean rooms, nice staff, no breakfast, and no shampoo

The location was good, quiet and save, so do not expect a night life around it. They do not carry shampoo, so don`t dare asking for it, no breakfast in the morning, just coffee. Staff was very nice, no complains at all and rooms were very clean. No fridge though. Overall a good stay¡

Clean, simple

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was nicely updated and modern. I loved the platform beds and clean wood floors versus other hotels that have old linen and dingy carpet. The hotel is located right off the freeway, but we had no problems with noise. My only two "issues" were: 1) wifi is not free and even the high speed Internet for $4.99/night has poor signal. 2) no hot tub, but the pool was fine.

Paper-thin walls

This is your average inexpensive motel. They are in the process of renovating the rooms, and in an attempt to modernize the look, they've lost basic comforts, like a place to store your luggage. The walls are very thin, so be prepared to hear everything from your neighbors, and be heard yourself!

It is what it is

Motel 6 is a low end choice. It was clean but the exterior is in need of paint. The property feels tired which an exterior paint job would help. The location was at the south end of town near the freeway. It's a little confusing at first until you realize that Motel 6 south and north are both at the southern edge of town just blocks apart.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Parking downtown is challeging. Take a deep breath, do what it takes, then enjoy your visit.

an unpleasant surprise around every corner

I was amazed. I had low expectations for a $60 motel, but this was impressive. At every opportunity, the motel 6 was not good. One great thing-the staff was friendly and accommodating. Great job. The sign out front reads Newly Remodeled....except that was left over from the last remodel. and based on the room I disagree 1st room -smelled of smoke (allegedly a non smoking room, despite ash trash in room) -very thin pillows, went to desk for extra -loud noise from overhead, would have been too loud to sleep so switched rooms 2nd room -AC unit was either HOT or COLD. no medium, no temp control possible. AC unit was loud and blows directly on the bed making it impossible to sleep without building some sort of barrier -shower was intermittently warm and cold -towels are far too small. only one in room -wifi cost $3, would only allow 1 system to use it at a time, and was slow and intermittently went out -thin walls, could hear neighbor +the black out curtains were very effective +the bed was reasonably comfortable I think that's enough. I'd recommend finding one of the other inexpensive motels in the area
