Friendly front desk at check-in gave us ground level pet friendly room. Rooms were very clean and have been updated recently. I like how they have laminate wood flooring instead of carpet. Carpet gets so gross and nasty. Exactly what we needed on a long drive. A clean and comfortable place to get a few hours sleep. We will return!

I read the reviews and was shocked to see all the negatives. We didn't have any of those kinds of experiences. Granted, we only stayed one night. We always stay at a Motel 6 and this was one of the better ones. The staff was the friendliest we have ever had. I walked laps around the Motel for 2 miles...

I have been here a few times but this last time room 144 the bed seemed much more comfortable than the last visit LOL.... Just got a room for a peaceful sleep. I see reviews that are not good but I had a better experience this time than a recent visit.

During my visit I observed prostitution, drug use. There was an arrest outside my room. A man with an ankle bracelet checking doors. My deadbolt on my door did not work. The light bulbs were missing from all of the lamps in my room. The bathroom flooded something during the day. I had to check out before my reservation was...

Would have given this a better rating had I not experienced what I had the last night I stayed there. I went to a convention for the whole day and came back to a clean room. I went to put my ID back in my wallet and noticed my food card, my bank card, and $100 cash was missing (which...

Part of the motel is under construction, that"s fine. But they insisted on putting us directly on the other side even though there was plenty of rooms in the front. The water was off in the entire motel. They said it would be back on by 7. My husband and I were going out for a while so we figured...

Room not cleaned completely. Strained of hair in bathroom. Not enought towels. Plugs not working. Stained mattress. Burned holes on bed covers. Carpets not vacuumed at all. The second day of our stay, the cleaning lady came at 6 in the afternoon... This place needs at little TLC and more. Please manager, do something, I'm not the first to complain.

not updated at all. would be best to tear down or upgrade like other MOTEL 6. dirty, burn holes in bedding, stained mattress and boxspring, no clock, hair dryer, coffee pot. will not stay here again. Motel 6 office head should be notified. check in was quick and staff friendly. just needs better cleaning and upgrade.

“Their Wifi is awful. We had a room around the back near the pool. It was definitely quiet except for their heating unit. I wouldn't stay there by myself. It looks a bit "seedy" on the outside.”
