Average stay. Cheap overnight stay. The room was acceptable. The motel staff was welcoming. The ice machine was hard to locate. The location was maintained but there were a lot of vagrants in the area.

For that quick overnight stay in a good area for not a lot of money, this is a great little place. Easy off and on I40 and friendly people! There is a Denny's up front that gives you 10% off if you are a Motel 6 guest and a C-Store across the street for filling up before hitting the road...

The guy at the front desk was super nice. But remember, it's a Motel 6. The beds are soft and ancient. The whole place has seen better days, but it's a good place to rest your head while traveling....Don't go to the Denny's tho---even our dog wouldn't eat their food,

Should have got the week discount while waiting on my new apartment to be ready and saved a couple hundred but I would recommend this Motel 6 for dog owners over any other motel 6 in town regardless. One night there was smoke smell in a none smoking room but if you own a dog request back rooms by school...

Stayed there during Balloon Fiesta Oct. 2016. We were looking for a cheap place since we were arriving there at night and was leaving at 4 AM for the festival. The room was clean but the smell of the sheets and blankets was not good at all. I really did not like to cover my head with the blanket since...

Stayed here during Balloon festival. Clean room, that is about the only good feature. First my bed was short sheeted for 2 days until I complained. Top sheet put on sideways, stopped 18" from foot of bed. No toiletries, skinny soap, only good for 1 shower then it crumble. No Kleenex in room. Smoke detector in room covered with plastic....

This motel 6 has not had the newer updates but is still pretty clean and a good value for your money. Front desk was friendly and helpful. Has a laundry but the laundry room is so HOT! Right next door to a Denny's. That was convenient but not close to much else.

This was easy to get to from the freeway. Large room, huge bathroom sink area. No fridge, that would be my biggest complaint. They only supplied 1 washcloth and I didn't use it because it looked like a cleaning rag. It was very stained with something brown (blood?) and a grey color. I didn't want to touch it. I was...
