Well, I took up lodging at this particular location because of the remodeled rooms. I stayed at this location from Dec 30-Jan 3 and I must say that my OVERALL stay was pretty exceptional. Check in was fast and easy however I must note upon check in and not to mention calling two days in advance to be SURE that...

When trying to log-in to the internet got a message that said, "internet is not available". Answer I got from the front desk was they were fully booked and that is why it is running slow, even though I kept trying to tell them I could not connect. Left the room the following morning about 7:00 am and it was...

We stayed here our last night in Tampa. We were lucky to be able to book because of the college championship game being in town. My husband and I stayed in a king bed room - it was very spacious. Motel 6 is a basic, no-frills type of place, but we were pleasantly surprised. Our companions stayed in a two...

Permanent residents lived here, smoking crack and shootin' dope in the hallways was "normal" .... When you'd come out your door there was a strong smell of marijuana. The employees lived on site & the whole staff would lie for each other when called out on the things like the refrigerator and tv not working.... There was liquid methadone found...

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...

When we drove down from NY last fall, we always stayed at Motel 6 because we have dogs. Most were fine for a night, then we stayed here for about 10 days last fall, and again last week so. The rooms have always been very clean with fresh linens and towels. At some Motel 6s the guests can be a...

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.
