Great place, clean and comfortable rooms. Good and excellent customer service people in teh front desk. We end up renting on Motel 6 because of location and believe me it was more than that. Location, great customedr service, quiet ambience, and of course comfortable beds. definetely coming back on 2017

If you actually want sleep, unless you are a heavy sleeper this place may not be for you. The room was large and clean laminate and tile floor makes it a nice hotel for pets. But also makes it so you hear your neighbors every move. Cheaper hotel that is home to truckers, laborers and not so classy people. Cops...

I typically don't stay at Motel 6 due to the sketchy people they always seem to attract, but my boyfriend and I needed somewhere affordable to spend New Years Eve after a party. There is a front building with floors 1 & 2 and a back building with floors 3 & 4; we stayed in the back building. As we...

I have to say I read the reviews and was scared to death but, we totally enjoyed our visit . The people amazingly helpful and not rude at all and I got to thinking that maybe the people that wrote reviews should maybe think about how they treated the staff. The room was awesome and clean.

I do love the refreshed rooms! Very modern and clean! But not clean enough, as I woke up to roaches crawling around the floor in the middle of the night. Price was extremely reasonable, comes with mini fridge and microwave and in room safe. Pets accepted easily.

After a month of condos and beach motels we booked a room at Fairgrounds Motel 6 near the Tampa airport so that we could fly home the next morning. We were very happy with the room.
