My husband and I called in a reservation for two nights at the Motel 6 in Front Royal, VA. We have traveled and stayed at many a Motel 6 and like the basics and the fact that they are clean and inexpensive. The plus is that it did look clean but it was not inexpensive. The negatives: It looked shabby. There were drawers that couldn't close, the light in the closet did not work. There were stains on the mirror and the sink. The sink was glitchy and I had to force the knob in different directions before getting any water out. The toilet was leaking / running so that throughout the night I'd hear it refilling with water. The mattress shifted off the platform and I had to keep shoving it back into place. There were two very small wrapped soaps given to us along with the bathroom towels. No shampoo. No hair dryer. I have never been to a motel that did not have a hair dryer and didn't think to bring one. The big "NO" in my book is that the bolt for the door did not lock. We had the hinge that went over the door for protection but NO BOLT. Call me "sensitive" but I don't like being in a strange area and in a motel without that. This Motel 6 was the most expensive one that I've stayed at ... and the least desirable.

Booked a King bed Room 114 October 2-4 planning to see Luray Caverns & Shenandoah National Park & experience the famous Skyline Drive. All got ruined & trip failed due to bed bug infestation in Motel 6 , Front Royal VA. Huge bump, swelling on my face arms, legs.Very itchy, red, warm to touch and traumatizing experience. I called the front desk immediately , that i need to talk to the manager as soon as i inspected the bed.Witnessed the big bed bug right where i slept that night. The front desk guy responded and trying to deny it that it never happened to this room.I told him to “come over NOW”! I demanded him to see the bug himself. Our personal belongings was already packed to move out of the room ASAP!! Make the story short, he said he will call the pest control to inspect the room(Saturday). I Follow up with him later that day if it was done. He said NO, not until Monday.So while hearing that there is no urgency for them, I decided to check out, demand for a full refund and will call LOCAL DOH, & tried calling 311 to report bed bug infestation in this Motel 6. My whole travel plans had changed!! I seek medical attention at Urgent Care ,Front Royal VA due to worsening hives, heat flush and triggered allergic reactions.I was prescribed with taper dose Prednisone, Hydrocortisone 2.5% cream& Benadryl prn. Left Town and went to DC area & booked hotel at National Harbor. All of these are not done yet! I will call and find out if they have done anything to solve the issue! Planning to call Department of Health 10/6 & report this.Also will call 311 WHAT A DISASTROUS DAY. Be very vigilant with your hotel stay. Always inspect the bed and check the reviews

Reliable. Spacious room, well lit. TV worked. AC worked. Sheets seemed clean enough, but did not want to touch the curtains. Seems all the guests were placed in rooms side by side. I guess it makes it easier to clean and maintain. Located behind the Sheetz, so coffee not far for morning start.

My uncle and I were more than tired from a long journey from Florida to Vermont when we happened by this gem! The couple that run this place should teach lessons on how to work in the service industry. From the time we pulled in with a truck and trailer they were more than accommodating. They came out and helped us park, showed us our room and did it all w a smile! The room was clean and comfortable, just what we were looking for! If we ever happen by this way again We will go out of our way to find this place! Thanks again, the world needs more businesses like this!

me and a few friends stayed here. The room had no art work on the walls, just plain. No towel racks to hang towels or no closet or place to hang your cloths. The floors were so dirty that our feet were black when we walked on he floor bare footed. Beds were old and springy. And never once did we receive house keeping for the full week we were there. we had to ask for toilet paper all the time. Very dirty hotel.......

Last minute decided to go to the Shenandoah Valley and booked this Motel 6 for two nights. Couldn’t be more pleased. They accommodated the fact my husband can’t do stairs, welcomed our two pups without a fee, and took care of our every need from extra pillows to restaurant recommendations. Lovely, kind couple running a clean affordable place. Beds comfortable and we love the ceiling fan! We will be back!

I like to get away from personal stress, and one of my fave places being a railroad man is Front Royal,VA on the main line of Norfolk Southern Rwy. Also Front Royal has many older nice motels. The Cool Harbor was recently bought by Motel 6.... The former Harbor sits on a bluff over looking the Shenandoah River and on to Massanutten Mountain. It's a big hotel. Motel 6 did minimal rehab and it's showing. My room, 1 Queen, had a decent bed, one rickety table, one chair, chest of drawers and NO closet. It does have a wide screen TV. The bathroom was the best part in decent shape. Also, there were NO clothing hooks anywhere. Motel 6 should be ashamed of itself. We have stayed in 6's other places that they have bought from big chains, witness the Motel 6 in Liberal, KS of all places. It's not grande but in a lot better shape that the FR one. Come on guys. However, I was enticed due to previous stays to get a 15% off deal. So my room was $43 + tax. Not bad.

On my 4th annual girl's weekend getaway in the mountains, to drive along Skyline Drive for the breathtaking views, my BFF and I were tired after the almost 5 hour drive. We decided on the Motel 6 this time. From the moment I stepped into the lobby, I was not happy. The check-in was delayed, because the couple in front of me were being told their reservation was cancelled. I heard the guest say "when we asked earlier today, you said everything was fine." When I stepped up to the counter, the young lady named Judy had a snappy attitude. She told me they called me this morning to tell me my card was declined. I was very puzzled as to why they ran my card before I arrived, when the confirmation email clearly stated my card would be charged at check-in. I got it straight, and reminded her that I requested extra pillows on my reservation. She said "there's already 4 pillows in the room." (Well, THAT was courteous.) There's extremely little parking. Walked into the room, turned on the heat, and lint blew out with an odor that my friend said smelled like heat, but I swore it smelled like mice. I reached under the lampshade to turn on the lamp, and the shade fell over sideways because it does not attach. It is just sitting in place. (See picture) I sat down on the bed, and was startled with a loud bang of boards knocking together. The bed is not very comfortable. I guess I won't be getting my extra pillows. My weekend was ruined before it even started with Miss Judy's attitude at check-in. Their guarantee of great service is false. First impressions are very important. After this weekend, I will never stay here again.

The only light Tom Bodett should leave on at this location is the book of matches when he burns it to the ground. Opened the non smoking room door and it stunk like dope and cigarettes. My asthma kicked in and I couldn’t breathe. I went down to ask for another room and was told the place was filled. i told him i wanted my money back and i was moving hotels, but he told me no. This place is disgusting. We were trying to get a decent sleep before a week of hiking. I should’ve gone to town place suites first

There on a business trip booking three rooms. There were flies in our rooms. The toilet wouldn’t flush in one room. They missed a wake up call for one of our travelers. The walls are paper thin so you can hear your neighbor’s activities. Skimpy on supplies... just a bar of soap. No chairs in some rooms. Knobs off of chest. Pool is closed and filled with leaves. Besides that it’s very pleasant.
