This motel 6 turned out to be exactly what I expected it would be; dirty and not well maintained. Floors felt like they hadn't been mopped in weeks, dirt and debris in the corners and under beds. dripping faucet in the sink and water dripping from the overhead light in the shower. I hope the water was from a leaky supply line and not the shower drain from the room above. Entry door didn't close tightly and it had a large slice/hole in the front. beds were sagging and over due for replacement. old TV's. I could go on and on but I won't. The lone bright spot here is the friendliness of the staff. They were wonderful. Only wish they were required to do their jobs better or given more time to thoroughly clean the rooms. Stayed here for a football weekend and this is the least expensive place in town. But this was the last time I stay here.

Was not clean! This is the second room after having to change room cause the housekeepers were lazy. When they were asked to return to clean the room, cause we were still getting dressed the first time, not to mention I let them know of my allergy to dustmites. We left and came back our room was still left untouched so, they moved us to this one ( pictures below ) and it was nasty, looked like all the did was fix the beds and spot mop the floor. On top of all the on the first night in the first room we had problems with the lock on the door.

Clean room, nice pool, friendly staff. My only complaint was that there was a lot of noise in the evening but that could be because I was near the office. There was free ice and hot coffee in the morning.

Called last minute to make reservations, told it was $32.95/room for 5 people. Since the company credit card was in the other truck we had to have them call with the card number to finish the reservations. Not two minutes calling the 800 number the new price was $89 plus tax. Terrible accommodations, mold, dirty wash cloth behind bathroom door, and smoke alarm battery was going off. I don't even have a trash can. Tv is circa 1980, no fridge or microwave and outlet is on opposite side of room from the bed unless you move the bed. I would not recommend.

This is not the worst hotel I ever stayed in, but it’s very close. Stayed here during a football weekend when there was nowhere else to stay. It’s scary bad. Don’t stay here. Roaches, hairs in the bed, dirty bedspread with lots of cigarette burns in it. I saw the bad reviews and didn’t heed them. Stay away from this motel! I will say that the people working here were very nice. Motel 6 seriously needs to tear this place down.

All the hotels jacked up the price during game day/family weekend enormously and Motel 6 was the only available option price wise, although its price was almost doubled We booked an one queen bed room, but was provided with a full bed. Expectations were low, there should be not much to say. However, the smell coming from the bed was so disgusting that I feel obligated to speak out. The smell was mainly urine, coupling with damp moldy. To stay, we used our own pillows, mattress pad, comforter, towers and sheets bought from nearby Walmart.

I booked a room for three nights, Sept 7-10. The day I checked in, September 7, 2017, I was moved to five different rooms until I finally gave up and reconciled myself to the reality that there were no acceptable rooms. The first "non-smoking room" smelled like an uncleaned ash tray (room 235). The second room had bathroom walls covered with black mold, rubber baseboard separated from the wall in most of the bathroom, flooring that had cracked and was missing around the toilet, the vent cover on the exhaust vent was so filthy it had been pulled away from the wall because I'm sure there was no air exchange (room 237). The third room had a telephone that had been ripped from the wall, damage to the door indicating there had been an attempt to break into the room, it was in the process of touch up painting, and was not at all ready to be inhabited ((room 148). The next room, 216, had an air conditioner that did not work. The final room had a functioning air conditioner, but it, like the first room reeked of cigarette smoke (supposedly a non-smoking room). It was almost 11 PM and I finally accepted that I would be spending 3 nights in an unclean, unsafe feeling property. There as a U of Alabama football game, and evacuation of areas due to hurricanes so there were NO other rooms in all of Tuscaloosa. My choice was sleep in the car or stay in the room. It was a tough choice. The bathroom floor in this room (217) though in decent condition, was filthy. After showering I wiped the moisture from the floor with a hand towel which I was using as a bath mat and the filth on the floor transferred to the towel. I have pictures. The bed frame was broken, there were holes in the mattress, there was dirt and dead bugs between the mattress pad and the mattress indicating the mattress pad had likely not been changed in ages, the box springs had springs exposed on all corners, and that mattress was worn out many years ago. This motel should be refurbished, cleaned up or closed by the corporate office or the Board of Health. STAY AWAY!!!!!

Stayed during tropical storm Cindy. Hotel in very bad condition, Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was to be non smoking but wasn't, reeked of smoke. Smoke alarm missing in room was puzzling since that's a requirement by code. Window curtains ripped in several places, floor so dirty walking barefoot wasn't an option.

It was midnight and the first motel we stopped at. The room had about 3 sheets of toilet paper on the roll, no extra roll, no kleenex,,no hot water in the bathroom, water from bathroom faucet was tepid, phone did not operate, bedspreads had holes in the lining, no hair dryer, no refrigerator or microwave. noisy outside, no breakfast. The beds, however, were comfortable. If you want a bed and TV only, this is for you, because that is all you will get. $55 on weekends, $39 through the week.

This was the worst hotel that you could possibly stay in. When we enter the room with the kids and turned on the tv it had all kind of racial slurs on the screen. I called the front desk and nothing was done we all will be calling cooperate office.
