Basic services for a basic price

The Milwaukee South location is one of the earliest locations opened by Motel 6. Considering it's age, it is very well maintained. Other reviewers mentioned stains on the carpets. The hallway carpets may have had some stains but they also were clean. The only smell I sensed was of the perfumes in the cleaning fluids or disinfectants used to keep the place clean. Check in and check out were a breeze. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless. Given that I had seen a local TV report of a neighboring motel in the airport area having a bed bug problem the day before my visit, I checked before tucking myself in. Nothing. The bed was a basic mattress and comfortable. In fact, I slept better here than I had at an more upscale motel chain a week earlier because the bed was closer to the one I have at home. The analog TV & remote worked fine. the TV had a sleep timer. (Tip: no clock radio was provided. I used the alarm feature on my cell phone for a wake-up call.) The shower water was hot. Some of the standard-sized towels appeared to be brand new. (Tip: the only personal care item provided is soap. Bring your own shampoo, hair dryer, etc.) The morning coffee available at the front desk was fresh and hot. In summary: I got what I paid for: basic services for a basic price. I will stay there again when the need arises. (Note: I posted a similar review on Google+)

Suited our needs but WI-FI is EXTRA (BOOO)

Needed a home base that wouldnt break the bank for a week stay. Staff was friendly, parking good, loud atmosphere esp early morning maid service. Main gripe....EXTRA CHARGE FOR WI-FI which is nickel and diming and not mentioned on sign or advertising.... Kinda ghetto, bathroom facette leaked, shower had bad patch job, morning maid service is loud.

Needs that something special

If Motel 6 would improve their beds - that would make all the difference for us straightforward need a place to stay with internet travelers. This bed was worse than the one in Joplin. A good foam mattress cover would work well. The internet signal was there and OK.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Locos the Mexican restaurant next door was OK from a Texan's point of view. The Tortilla soup good the enchilada soft taco beans and rice everyday fare. Compared to Texas prices....a buck or three high. Also, if you like to walk and weather permits, an easy walk from the airport.

Do not get a taxi if staying it, it's a short walk come out of airport and go right follow it round till you see the big sign. I would recommend staying though

TERRIBLE

DON'T STAY HERE"1st they wanted the ID of my guest when "I" was the one paying. 2nd I requested a queen bed but got 2 double beds. 3rd looks like they are trying to charge my cc more than my receipt says. I will fight the charge if this is the case. NEVER AGAIN! The one in Brookfield is nicer I'm told!

If you have allergies, stay away

When I first walked into my room, I thought it looked clean and this was going to be a pleasant stay. The air was on 60 so before we left for the day I turned it to 68. When we got back the room was muggy so I put the air back to 60. That night I woke up in a panick- I couldn't breath. I took an allergie pill and soon I could breath easier. The room definitely had mold... Not safe for anyone let alone someone with allergies. We didn't even stay the second night.

Expected to Pay Less to Get Less

At $70/night with taxes and fees, I would have expected a lot more from the hotel. The room was freezing, there was no mattress pad on the bed with see-through sheets. The layout of the room was terrible! The bed was pushed against the wall so my husband had to crawl over me to get out in the middle of the night. The bathroom was disgusting. Mold at the shower base and the tile paper was peeling off. Calking was yellow and pulling up, also covered in black mold. There was no way I was taking a shower. The deadbolt worked somewhat but there was no hook in the chain lock. For the feel of this motel, I would have said $25/night max!
