The whole place smells so gross! We had a tiny room (1 queen bed). At check in, the girl we had was rude to us. No one looked happy to work there. The guy that worked at night was probably annoyed by us, but that doesn't mean you can't help people!

Comfortable beds, clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff. They try to do their best to satisfy the customers needs. Nothing I didn't like. My stay was very comfortable. I would definitely return to this Motel 6!!!

Upon arrival in the lobby I was grunted at by the front desk clerk. No more words were spoken, but a receipt and a room card were handed to me. The elevator ride was interesting as it thumped its way to the fourth floor and jerked to a noisy stop. Jerky enough that the dirt on the floor of the... More

The most disgusting motel I have ever stayed at. It should be closed. Homeless people in the parking lot. No dryer, coffee pot, shampoo etc. Totally a DUMP! I was afraid to go to sleep, left the dump by 4 am. The smell in the room was smelling bo all night, or curry. Very disgusting. Looked like they sell the... More

Econo traveling after a long day of driving and this location is what it is. A decent spot to lay your head and carry on the next day. Close to local amenities and highway exits. Again, if it is a 5 star a experience you are looking for, this is not it. If you need a place to recharge and... More

Clean room. That's the most important. You get the basic. It has the lowest price in the area 80$/night. The service is too serious and they dont really care about much but giving you the key. The night we stayed the wifi wasnt working at all. So if you are flying next day and you have to check your bookings....... More

Don't expect a 5 star, luxury hotel, but if you're just stopping in for a good night's sleep and a shower, you can't beat the value. Nothing fancy. Rooms have a 'college dorm' feel. Paid wifi. Free parking.

I came there with my wife and my 3 little boys. Our first impression was this horrible smell of smoke, even if we had a non smoking room. The price is very cheap - children don't pay! - but the accommodation too... no boiler, no fridge, no free wifi. However, thanks for the free coffee on the morning.

Thank Nobeit
