Friendly staff nice pool

Good and safe place. In general it is worth your money for a budget hotel. It does the job for what you pay for.

I didn’t expect much because motel 6 is a lower quality brand. For me, that means small rooms with no frills, and unimpressive staff. Once we had brought our stuff in, we noticed the dirty microwave but it was easy for me to clean. When it was time for bed, I found old yellowish sheets with cigarette burns and a dirty tissue between the sheets. I was apalled but didn’t tell my spouse because he would have made us go elsewhere and I was exhausted. Also, another dirty tissue by the bed and a pretty dirty bathtub. Management should help housekeepers if low staffed or just close half the rooms if they can’t handle it. Does Orbitz make hotels rent out filthy rooms because it’s a special rate?

As is usual for Motel 6 the property and room was in great condition, everything worked and the staff was super friendly and courteous as usual

We arrived around 1:30am to check in from a long day of driving. I was traveling with my twelve year old and unfortunately, we had a terrible experience and ended up leaving around 2am to check into another hotel. The hotel had prostitutes hanging out in the parking lot, as well as other individuals who were not only being loud but extremely disrespectful hanging outside of our door, causing us to feel unsafe. Becasue it was so late and we were so tired, we didn't even try to get visit the front desk to get our money back. I would caution people to proceed with caution. We stayed at the La Quinta a little further down and had a much nicer experiecne.

It was a BASIC place to stay. We only stayed for 1 night, thank goodness. The sheets were dirty, the shower had gnats flying around the drain and there were questionable people outside our room. We got in after midnight and left really early in the morning so it worked for a few hours. The photos looked nothing like our room.

Dorothy at the front desk was kind and courteous.

The lady behind the desk was very patient with my inability to hear well through the plexiglass :)

Night lady at the desk is super sweet and helpful. Parking is awful we left to go eat came back andd not a parking spit one. Had to park next door.

I wish they have more amenities. This was really basic.
