On the way to D.C. we needed a room for a night. It was $80. Supposedly non-smoking, yet it REEKED of cigarette smoke. An obvious NO SMOKING sticker was on the door. LIES. We spilled a bit of water on the floor ~ no carpet, laminate hardwood~ and when my husband wiped it up with a hand towel from the...

One star is too many for this place. We arrived late in the evening after a 16 Hour Drive from Maine with three young children. There was a marijuana joint tucked in the side of the bed. When I lifted the covers there were bugs in the bed. They were thick coarse hairs in the sheets, handprints all over ,...

This hotel is pretty poor even for a budget motel. I stay in budget motels often and this one even falls short of my low expectations. Check in was fast and friendly but upon check in I find out there is no free Wifi (it's 2016 get with the times) and there is no breakfast (not even basic continental). The...

I have been staying at this hotel for at least 9 years. I have seen this motel improve without the prices going through the roof. It was a great value when I started staying there and no even better. The beds are very comfortable and help my back a lot. The TV's have been upgraded and they have more channels...

I'll admit, at one point this hotel was a mess but not such a mess that I wouldn't stay. I mean there weren't many cars in the parking lot. Since the renovations this hotel not only cars in the lot but there are BMWs, and other luxury cars parked. The rooms are amazing, modern & fun. I slept very well...

This is a basic motel. Tiny registration area with a foreign guy that's hard to understand. He was nice and professional, but we didnt understand each other. Outside walk up rooms. The room was clean the bed was comfy. There s no fridge or microwave and you must have your own shampoo. There is a complimentary bar of soap for...

Pretty standard Motel 6. Room was updated but you can still tell it was all cheap stuff, but at least it gives the outward appearance of being nice. Beds and pillows were average at best, shower was very tiny and did not appear to be completely clean. Door handle to the bathroom also turned the wrong way (took me a...

The hotel location is convenient. Right off a major highway. That's the big plus. And within earshot is an Einstein's Bagels. The room was musty but clean. Even though it was non-smoking, it smelled funny. Internet is not free: $2.99 or $5.99 depending on the speed. You get asked for a photo ID when you check in and they scan...

During my business training trip, we all stayed at this motel. It was right next door to the training center. Very convient; however they had a limited breakfast each day. The room was ok and did enjoy the free movie channel.

Stayed here a year ago on my way south. Travelled with 2 large dogs and thought that Motel 6 was a respectable chain. I had another reservation with a motel 6 in S.

“If you must stay here, stay on the far end from the lobby, facing criswell. Seeing as how the trains are so loud, it probably won't help much.”

“Read reviews for Motels and Hotels before staying there if you have time. Skip the good ones, they could be planted and fake. Read the bad reviews and look for similar themes or topics in the complaints (thats how you know they are real). Also, the measure of a good business is not what they do when everything is fine, its how they treat you when you have a complaint.”
