The room was filthy. There was trash in the bathtub. When you walked on the floor the bottoms of your feet turned black. The grounds are atrocious!! There are cigarette butts in piles all around the walkways. Trash is everywhere. Thank god the ice machine worked. I booked this as a last resort because there just were no other rooms available. Motel 6...you should be ashamed to have your name on this establishment. OH...the cockroaches in the room were a bonus I guess.

Very spartan, way overpriced, areas of poor maintenance.

The upgrades to the facilities were modern and good looking but the mosquitoes and the standing water in the shower did not help. I killed 12 mosquitoes in 1 night.

The room needed mopping, the air condition in the room needs cleaning it has gunk inside the vent and makes the room stink. The bedspread has cigarette burns on it and it is a non smoking room. There wasn't any poop bags in the dog areas

The floors are filthy. Wiped up some spilled water and towel came back covered in black filth. Apparently the do not mop floors, only sweep after clients leave. Hotel manager not available. We presented filthy towels to front desk. Did not give me or send me a receipt. Over charged me for rooms. I would never recommend this place. Contacted corporate Motel 6 about our concerns.

Location was good. Shower curtail was hanging down as the rod was pulled out of wall. Sink did not drain at all. Ac Kept turning off got hit quick. Trash piled up outside doors almost to ceiling. Trashed

Very clean room at a great price..........................................................

Good location but no pool. Overall ok but floors on room were filthy

The room could have used an iron and ironing board. The toilet could have been a little cleaner. Overall, the room was sufficient.

Clean but sparse. Nice king bed with a microwave and mini refrigerator. But no closer,, dresser, or even a hairdryer. AC worked well. Outside noises were an issue.

Cost was way too high for this dump. No shampoo, no water pressure, toilet backed up with normal usage, staff were zombies. The cost was highway robbery for that dump. WILL NOT return

Very little water pressure in the shower. Drains in both the tub and shower didnt drain properly.

There was stains on the bed covers. The room smelled horrible. There was some little black pieces of something all over the mattress.

you could park in front of room. disliked you could not get any ice, machine was suppose to be in making mode went to walmart bought a cooler and ice, went to check ice machine when i left wed still no ice floors need better cleaning , wiped floor with towel dirty just to get spot of water up
