I paid about 280 usd per night. No breakfast; just American coffee. The room definitely wasn't worth the price. I would not recommend going there if you have other alternatives. The only pro I would see is that it's close to the airport

Had an amazing time and stay! I know, motel 6 right? Not your typical motel 6 at all. Room was super clean and remodeled. It reminded me of IKEA. lol My boyfriend and I stood here for the entire weekend to go skiing and sledding. The location of the Motel 6 is perfect it's so close to the small town...

Our room had someone else's dirty towels in there. We had no clean ones. There was no kleenax, microwave, fridge, toiletries, or free wifi. There was hair everywhere and the shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Our bed has a pee stain on it. I told the front desk person and she said "yeah that's not cool."...

Basic motel, they have pretty good channels though. We came here for a quick little getaway with our dogs, customer service was nice and the lake is about 4 minute drive. No complaints from us we enjoyed it.

I feel people need to be warned about the OBSCENE noise levels at this property. The room is fine, clean, and a good value for the area. However, I was woken up on a Sunday morning at 4AM from what sounded like a vacuum cleaner operating in my room. I called front desk and learned that the snowplay area immediately...

Your general basic motel, inexpensive but nicely kept. Great location with access to the bike path around the lake and easy access to the back highway for quick escape from the mountain traffic leaving on a weekend. The amenities are good with a nice lobby with vending. We went in the summer and the pool was not working due to...

I booked this motel last minute one night for a unplanned fun get away with our dog. The next morning plans changed and the trip had to be cancelled. The Expedia app would not let me cancel online, however the app said I could still cancel same day. So I called the motel directly, was greeted by pleasant waiting music,...

This is definitely a 2 star hotel, knew this when we booked but it was last minute and all that was available. It was clean, there were no amenities in the room. No shampoo, conditioner, tissues, or coffee. They did have coffee available in the office where you checked in. The towels were the worst part, they were like shop...

The property was decent enough but I will not be going back. Very dog friendly with lots of nice green grass for bathroom breaks however, many guests did not pick up after their dogs. The room was basic and clean except for the sheets. I was appalled when I saw the stained sheets. Did no one notice? Serious quality control...
