The initial room that I was given was so filthy that I had to request to be moved to another room. There was what looked like dried and sticky food on one of the comforters, as well as crumbs on the floor and on the table. I was moved to another room which was not much better. The smell of marijuana smoke was wafting in through the windows and under the doors and throughout the hallways of the facility. Do not recommend!

Pool and price Non working air conditioning. No other rooms with working air. ceiling was coming apart.

There's no sense having a non-smoking room when the door has an inch gap at the bottom and people are smoking in the hallway. Front desk staff seemed put off that I interrupted his dinner. Hallways not clean .

The property is very run down and scary people stay there.

The price was good but for that price amenities are slim.

Quick check in, clean comfortable room, good shower and sleep. What more do you want.

It was nice

This motel discrimnates against white single non-smoking females such as myself. They subjected me to severe sleep deprivation, sadistic treatment, blatant provocation and then threatened to call the police on me when I reacted yet did nothing to a black female who subjected me to the severe sleep deprivation. They allow other customers to smoke cannabis in the rooms even though it's illegal in Iowa.

Well i would of liked there to be a fridge in my room but there wasnt ..

The room was ok, the wifi was bad and the ice machine was out of order.

Pleasantly surprised. Motel 6 is stepping up their game. And perfect for families with fur babies on a budget.

Wish the rooms had microwaves and mini fridge, but otherwise very nice

It smelled terrible & I checked in at about 2 a.m. asked for late check out. That was not communicated & there were doors slamming all around my room. People yelling & loud in the halls, across the hall from my room & the adjoining room to mine. It was terrible. I was awake until 430 a.m. & woken up at 6 a.m. after having traveled over 20 hours to get there needing to relax & rest so I could continue my journey. Very upsetting & disappointing! I shouldn’t have had to pay anything for this since I could not rest!

The right price for the right amenities. Clean, convenient & a good location.

I like the price of the place. The doors close very loudly though l. The doors to the hallway. If your room is close to the hallway door, you’ll hear people coming and going. I’m a hard sleeper so it never bothered me.
