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. It was clean and fresh smelling with updated furniture. This is a basic no frills motel. (complimentary coffee in the lobby is about It)...

The lady at the desk was rude and nasty. Did not really want to be there! I decided to check before I bought the room! It was so incredibly nasty & dirty! I agree spend $20 more & stay somewhere else!

We stay at Motel 6 a lot when we travel and this was the worst we ever stayed at. Room had bad odor, fan didn't work, shower converter didn't work, chair back broken, room didn't look clean. No bulb in one light, no Kleenex, pillows were in bad shape. Will rethink about Motel 6 for rest of our trip.

We stay in a lot of Motel 6's because we travel with our dog and they are very pet friendly. This property is in need of an update and make-over. The rooms and furnishings are well worn. Our room was semi-clean but nicely equipped with a fridge, micro, and, safe. It's in a decent neighborhood and plenty of eating spots...
