Hotel dirty & loud, staff appeared to have their family living in the lobby. Lobby locked midnight to 6 am. no access to coffee at 5 am as promised by desk clerk. Rooms noisy & noise in the halls all night.

Stayed for quick overnight in transit from TX to Fla. Was not looking for much, just a clean place to sleep overnight, and I did not get that. I thought I had stayed here a couple years ago, but was mistaken. Used my Choice Points and it was a waste. The staff was friendly, but the facility itself is 5... More

Very unsanitary! There was a cockroach inside the bathroom, the refrigerator didn't work at all & the lights inside the bathroom wouldn't turn on. Worst motel that I have ever stayed at! Wouldn't recommend staying there.

I am so furious not only with this hotel, but the other hotels along this strip that I may never stay in Mobile again. Upwards of a dozen hotels in this belt line area flash rates of $39--on their signs, in coupons, on billboards. I first went to the Red Roof inn and was given this run around and then... More

We GPSed our way to this area by way of a discount coupon book. The first motel we got to on the I-65 W Service drive was a motel 6. First let me say that any time I arrive at a motel in the late night and I can't come into the lobby but have to check in thru an... More

Made the decision to stay here after 11 long hours of driving and were too tired to get to our original target. With 2 small kids. Lasted in the room maybe 20 minutes before I was grossed out enough to pack up and get out fast. Next time I'll read reviews even when I'm too exhausted. What a gross mess

Stayed with my daughter en route to a veterinarian interview in Mississippi. We picked this at random on the Hotel Row off Airport blvd. Asked for a non-smoking room... but when we got into it... well, as my daughter said: "If this is non-smoking, it hasn't been non-smoking for long". Oh well, it was a stopover, it was fairly cheap,... More
