Price was good. Parking right in front of room is always good. Carpet has been replaced with vinyl. some updates in room. Now the bad: in spite of signs on all doors that 'smoking prohibited by state law,' room smelled smoky and dodgy roomers on either side were seen openly smoking and going in and out of their rooms. Very...

Bed was clean and the AC worked very well! However, the room was very dated and worn while there were dead bugs in the corner and quite a bit of hair on the sink, floors, and in shower. I'm not too squeamish so this didn't bother me so much but not everyone may be able to stay in place like...

First of all, I have stayed at this same Motel 6 several times over the last 4 years. I want to personally thank Jessica for making sure that if I wasn't happy with my room then she would change it for me without any problems. I asked for a non smoking room and she told me that they are all...

Location was great, the room reeked of smoke. Could not sleep. could not stay another night. Bedspread had burn holes in it. If you go there get another place to stay.Service was good but not worth the smell of the room. We had a handicapped room and there were plenty of bars around the tub but not a walk in...

Jessica assisted me with checking in. She was not only helpful with my check in, she also assisted me with my questions and concerns about future bookings. Jessica made my stay all the more pleasant. I will go back because of the excellent service I received from Jessica.

Being that we were coming into town late after driving 11 hours and getting up early to leave, we thought we could crash at an inexpensive place that would "leave the light on for you". We were horribly wrong. These Motel 6 lights should be turned off, permanently. I have literally never seen a motel this bad. After checking-in within...

Pros...great location and Ken is very friendly at the front desk. Newer looking sink fixture. Cons... room smelled like it used to be smoking. Room and bathroom need a deep cleaning. Laminate floor is cheap so you can see the dirt and grime that get stuck to it. Summary... a small step above sleeping in your car. Suggestions: Deep clean...

I knew it was going to be a "crappy little motel" but I was not prepared for the terrible smokey, moldy smell that enveloped me. I was also not expecting to find the large population of transient folks living there. IT was not worth the the cheap price, and if there had been any other places with openings I would...
