They didn't have a room for us despite our having made a reservation and having called earlier to let them know we wouldn't be checking in until early morning hours.

They cancelled my reservation and laughed at me and said it wasn't her problem. The front counter looked like I was doing a drug deal. I'll never recommend that trap house to anyone

The place was nothing like the photos. It was dumpy and I would not recommend it to anyone that I like.

I was expecting the usual Motel 6 experience, poor location, average to low-end room. Was actually please with this location and the condition of the room. It was quite nice. Could have used a refrigerator in the room, but no big deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bad: they were in the process of remodeling the lower floor, so there was no ice machine or vending. Never found the coffee they claimed they had. The room cards stopped working after a day, so had to have them reprogrammed twice. Nonetheless, I would stay there again and may next year.

Get it together

Pros: cheap
Cons: customer service, security, free wifi and how they go about cleaning.
Location: convenience
First off they set me up with a dirty room and had to switch me. roaches and people coming in and out which was obvious to see they were drug and alcohol users. hallway smelled of a dirty mop even though when I arrived they were cleaning it. As a cleaner myself, I could smell they used bleach to clean carpet that obviously needs a deep professional cleaning. Some employees need to be retrained in guest service.

The hotel was not in the best neighborhood. It was close to the Airport, which is why we booked this hotel. When we got there, they did not have a roll a way bed, which I requested. So I had to up grade to a suite that cost more money.

Hotel RIPOFF

If you are looking for a hotel that specializes in a 2 hour rate or where you can openly buy drugs in the parking lot...then this is your kind of place. Have a family? You'd better keep them close. Want to use the pool? Its always closed for something. They advertise WIFI, but believe me it isn't free or fast. You must pay either $2.99 or $4.99 per day..per device. Unfortunately, the $2.99 rate is very slow, drops often and the speed is abominably slow. The $4.99 rate is not much better, just more expensive. There is a restaurant next door with free WIFI and great food...but this hotel sucks and that is about the best I can say. When we checked in the clerk was unbelievably UNhelpful, discourteous, and rude. Most others were much better, but it only takes one to ruin a trip. I would sleep on the street before returning to this Motel 6.
