Location is good! Pool chemicals were overwhelming. My eyes burned for hours!

Awesome staff, super friendly and extremely helpful accommodating my late check in. Rooms were as advertised and the property is bookoo easy to find.!!! Thanks Motel 6 and thanks Orbitz!!!

Enjoyed my stay. The staff was polite and professional. The room was comfortable and quiet. Had a great time. Would do it again.

Nothing fancy but a comfortable 2 night stay. Staff very accommodating and friendly made our stay a nice one.

In need of updates of which is in progress. Staff was super & friendly! A comfortable spot for a night or two. Off the highway enough for quiet sleep. When the updates are finished it will be nice. I would stay again. There's no extra amenities but it is an economy motel. For the price it was worth the stay. Microwave & coffee in the lobby. I had no complaints. Thanks for a comfortable stay!

Room was dirty upon arrival. Only 1 towel provided. Overall room is run down. At checkout manager let me know renovations are starting soon. In the future I may give them another chance after the remodel

Front desk service was friendly and helpful. The actual room was bad. The sheets barely looked clean, the room itself looked like maybe they took a swifter to move the dust around, there was either dirt or mold on the outside drawers and some wall corners, the bathroom was not clean and the bandaid in the shower drain was the cherry on top. Also there was only an outlet on one side of the bed and the other outlet was next to the sink. No mini fridge, no microwave, no hair dryer. You get one maybe clean towel and one roll of toilet paper. And although I chose this motel for being pet friendly, have fun trying not to step on dog poop all over the property because absolutely no one picks up after their dogs. I suppose you get what you barely pay for but I would never stay in a motel 6 again.

Peaceful

I specifically asked for a non smoking room and the whole room smelled bad as soon as I opened the door, and I found a cockroach by the bed, I couldn’t even stay there with my kids I had to stay at a family members house since I had already paid for it I couldn’t cancel

Long line at about 8pm to check-in, staff was complaining about not being able to clean a room because of needles and blood and drug paraphernalia all over a room. Doesn’t make you feel very good and comfortable when checking into your room for the night to know that’s what’s going on around you. Room was basically outdoors as the door didn’t completely close or seal off the noise/outdoor temps from the inside! A good tug would almost create a visible gap in the door jam, almost like the room had been kicked in by police or something! Definitely not going to be spending money here again, I would recommend you check for something else available!

PERSONNEL WAS GREAT BUT NO ICE MACHINE ANYWHERE AND NON SMOKING ROOMS STILL SMELL LIKE SMOKE ONES

Didn’t stay there. Waited 2hours to check in and finally went elsewhere. They had no clean rooms because housekeeping was out to lunch.

Its a MOTEL with MOTEL kind of people. Enough said. If you’re desperate it’ll work. If you are traveling with kids just spend the money for a better/safer/cleaner place.

It’s a lovely motel. Simple yet refined but it just misses the mark. Economic and Great Team . I highly recommend to any looking for a cheap and clean place to rest.

Rooms weren't cleaned & ready even though we checked in 1 hr after check in time, one of the rooms wasn't ready until 6:30 pm. This did not seem to be an issue with housekeeping but, with staffing. There was 1 lady trying to clean all of the rooms by herself!

The room smelled of mold. The windows don’t open, so you can’t air it out. The room was not clean, lots of dirt and sand. No shampoo. No coffee pot. Convenient location.

Very clean staff were nice. Will stay again

Have stayed several times over the past few years and this place is looking rough. Metal fences need repainting or repair. Walls need patching from dents and repainting by skilled professionals. Sheets and blankets feel pilly and well used. Time to update all around.
