This had to be the nastiest place I have ever been, smells bad, air must have been from the 30s, 19in tube tv, it is just nasty, the smell was extreme, The only thing I can recommend is go any where but here

This property is really ragged around the edges. Even when held to the low standard that goes hand in hand with some (usually older) Motel 6 operations the Topeka West location on Wanamaker scrapes bottom. Enough said.

This motel has its issues and I can't say I was too thrilled with it. My fiance and I had booked this trip in advanced for a week trip to Topeka. When the date came, we packed up our two dogs and headed to the motel. From the very start, we had issues. First we were told that there were...

This was the most horrific experience of my life. Cockroaches and urine. There was some sort of drug deal and other shady stuff going on but they wanted to yell at a 12 year old for putting her foot on the fence to the pool. Not even kidding about this. It really happened. Rude staff. Got super irate and says...

After driving all day one needs a hot shower and a bed. Motel 6 has that. Even had a small coffee pot to get me started on the next day of driving. It's not elegant, it's not classy. It's not supposed to be. It's MOTEL 6.

We needed a room for the night since our car broke down on our way home so it was already a bad day for us. I am happy that we went here based on a price recommendation from a friend. The staff were amazing and went above and beyond anything we expected. We were lucky enough to meet the manager...

This hotel is fair at best. The staff was VERY easy to work with and polite and helped us find close parking with a 36 ft trailer. The room we had this visit was clean but very much in need of repair. We just "crashed" for the nite and left at 4 AM, so it was priced for that type...

Hotel is in a good location with many restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are a good price. but you do have to pay extra for WiFi. Room was clean, but the mattress was not very good. If you have a room on the Wanamaker side, it is somewhat noisy. But overall a good choice for a basic room. I would...

The rooms are bare bones. No frills. The queen bed has sprung springs. Linens are small and scratchy. There is no in room refrigerator, coffeemaker, or microwave. The television is an old style picture tube vintage. There is no shampoo. The property appears to be frequented by truckers and travelers who fill up their ice chests from one of the...
