scary location

the room itself is bare bones. which is fine for a quick day/night stay. but the area around the hotel (and in the surrounding rooms in the hotel) was more than a bit scary. I wouldn't go there with kids.

Good location but definitely 1-star

Rooms have been redone and look decent, but laminate floor is swept, not washed, between guests. Bed quite comfortable. Very basic "amenities" -- coffee in lobby is gone by 8:30 a.m., no hair dryer, etc. Fee for Internet -- as is truthfully disclosed. Front desk staff not particulalry friendly. We chose this motel because it has exterior corridors and accepts pets -- not many in DC area fit that description. So while we might stay there again, would not recommend to others.

One night stay.

For the price and number star motel I guess I wouldn't expect much, but I didn't stay there long enough to give an honest review however I can't say my bathroom was thoroughly cleaned and maybe the should get new towels ever so often.

need mechanism to not book a hotel that does not have electiric power

We were booked us into a hotel that had no electric power. We went to the hotel because we had no power at home due to the storm, and found out the hotel had the same thing. The rating of the hotel is not based on anything other than to say that the system should be improved so that if a hotel is not functioning during a storm or for another reason, travel booking services should not book customers into this kind of facility.

Stay elsewhere next time...

I would try to stay at a better place next time. Our non-smoking room smelled badly of smoke, cleaning solution and animal urine and the telephone had a thick layer of some sort of grime (dried hair pomade?) on it which did not give me a good feeling for the cleanliness of the place. Also, the doors did not fit into the door frames. The top of the front door had about an inch of daylight coming in on one side and the bathroom door would not close at all. Also, there are railroad tracks on the other side of the parking lot (about 40 feet away from the door of our room) and the freight trains go by about every 20 minutes, which is fairly noisy although they only blow their whistles occasionally. On the positive side, the air conditioner worked and the shower was fine.

What a Nightmare

This motel was dirty. I was given a room where the sheets were covered in menstrual blood, & advised to change them myself and given a free night. The bath of the next room had a tub that was covered in long black hairs full of hair dye. I was so tired of fighting that I woke my kids at 4AM and went to another local hotel. This is one Motel 6 that should turn the lights off.

Stay here only if in a pinch

I stayed for 4 nights but could not sleep for 3 because other guests were yelling and banging on doors and stuff at 2-3AM - not the hotel's fault. Room was non-smoking but smelled very strongly of old cigarette butts - to the point where you wonder how it can possibly smell that strong... wouldn't it air out after a while? I spotted 2 bugs that may have been small roaches but I'm not sure. TV was pretty old with somewhat fuzzy/lines cable connection and not many channels - but still watchable. Bathroom was clean, no issues there. Towels were bleach clean. Linens were changed daily and pretty clean. Some old cigarette holes but no biggie. No bedbugs thank goodness. Location was very convenient for me. Very close to train tracks though.

DO NOT STAY HERE - POOR QUALITY

Room Not Clean / Very Bad Smoke odor in a Non Smoking room . Had Holes in Bed cover / Beds very poor quality - hard . Toilet cracked. "" Local Hotel Management should be fired"" . I guess Corporate Motel 6 Management does not care . too bad. Hotel has a good location in Gaithersburg.

Worst motel ever

Room wasn't ready one hour after published check in time. Clerk said check in time was when he said it was, not as published. Access from road almost impossible when road is busy. No dresser or soft chair in room.
