I stayed on 2 different times on the same trip. Bring you ear plugs! There is a train that passes by and heavy street noise. The furniture is worn. FYI, The fridge does not have a freezer compartment. On my 2nd visit the toilet seat was dirty, I had to wipe crumbs off the night stand, and there was hair on the clean towels. The shower never got hot, just warm, and very weak spray. The door has a big gap at the bottom, so not sure what the temperatures in the room would be in extreme weather. The Coffee in the lobby was excellent! Nice front desk man.

Me and my partner traveled to Keizer OR, to dj a wedding and we stayed at this motel 6. At first there was a little confusion with booking the room but Kelli ensured we got the exact room we wanted and needed in order to be able to haul all of our sound equipment inside. She was so sweet and could answer all of our questions without hesitation. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was clean and staff and housekeeping was awesome but the room REAKED of cigarettes upon arrival clearly haphazardly covered by air freshener, but there was no vacancy so I didn’t complain. I did not realize all of our things would end up reaking of cigarettes when we arrived home which wasn’t fun. We bought our own air freshener to make the room bearable but the AC smelled like pee?? Ants even when there was no food, we put all food sealed and up high before we even saw them and got rid of most of it once they were still there. This hotel is not in a good part of town and we did not feel safe there. Don’t take your dog out after dark and don’t take your dog to the pet potty area, it’s horrid. I have never had so many issues at a Motel 6 after staying in several over 20 years, but we were stuck there for the rest of our stay and limited our time at the hotel to strictly sleeping.

loud barking, people were stomping upstairs all day all night, no fast food close, roaches i counted 4, if microwave gets too hot, then you have to wait for a minute or two, no ''do not disturb signs'', you have to wait a long time for the house keepers to clean your room (if your long term) and a train comes all day all night so it's really loud.

Dear Guest, Your feedback indicates like there was a complete breakdown with the stay which is really worrisome. This is not at all a regular feature of our hotel and something has gone wrong. We regret the inconveniences but will investigate and based on that will take all possible steps to prevent such an experience to any guest.Guest reviews are serious for us and thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Hotel Manager.
