Stayed here for business with nine rooms. Not a normal motel 6 the rooms are much bigger so much better for my group. Excellent tv as well with many channels and flat screens. Good Wi-Fi and indoor pool as well make sure you go to one on Logan ave as there are several in town. Good location with access to...

Don't bother staying here, the GM Dharam Patel is a crook and the staff is rude. If you need something cheaper stay at the motel 6 on La Porte Rd, otherwise if you can afford to spend the extra $30 stay at the Ramada.

Nice big bright room. Fridge and tiny microwave. King bed, smoking room, hardwood floors no rugs! Bathroom is small, no dressers just a "desktop" like piece of furniture with 4 cubby holes. Front desk and housekeeper very nice! Hey-Vee food store/gas right next door.

The room/hallway smelled like cigarettes, the bathroom smelled like urine, and the shower curtain had mildew. It was awful. When I called the front desk they brought a clean shower curtain, and used a fan to blow the smoke out of the hall. They tried to remedy the smoke problem, but the guest continued to smoke in the hall. The...

Usually I stay at more upscale hotels, however this being very close to where I picked up my load this was close for me to get out of the semi truck for the night. The front desk clerk was decent and mostly friendly. Check in was quick and easy. Walked upstairs and didn't notice any smells or heavy perfumes covering...

We decided to give the hotel a second chance all hotels have a bad day or a bad experience. We went to check in and the same unfriendly worker is at the front desk. At check in I verified our room was on the first floor as requested due to stairs are hard for me due to handicap and there...

Room had faux wood linoleum floors, but probably better than carpet which could be pretty dirty/smelly in a place like this. Hallway smelled like smoke, but room was ok. Place was clean enough, considering it was a cheap motel in a small town in Iowa. Kind of stark without anything on the walls or any decoration of any kind, but...

Arrived late Friday afternoon, went to check in only to discover room charges were not as quoted when reserved. Only one person working with a National tournament being held arriving on Friday. Clearly one person to answer phones, check rooms as well as checking people in seems to be poor planning. Disappointed in our room. Was told has been out...

Look, you don't expect the Taj Mahal for $65, right? I pulled over because, at 11, I didn't think I had another four hours of travel in front of me. I googled "Waterloo motels," saw Motel 6 waaaaay down in price beneath the others. I was all by myself, right?--I didn't need the plush velour bathrobe. Take the room, dummy,...
