I was going to leave a semi-good review until events that transpired the day before we left which has changed my mind. I booked this hotel because it was less expensive and the pictures made it look nice and cozy. I was mistaken. other than the room being nothing like the photos, the walls being paper thin, the bed being extremely cheap and painful we had all our personal items touched and rearranged! We we were never told that housekeeping would come into the rooms, and we never had a door hanger to say 'Do not disturb" or anything. When we checked in, the unenthused front desk woman (who huffed at me when I asked her to repeat herself since I could not understand or hear her) never gave warning that housekeeping enters our rooms whenever. When I found our things moved and the bed made I stormed over to the office where she then told me "It is Motel 6 policy that housekeeping HAS to enter your room everyday" and that I "Should have asked for them to not come in when I checked in" I told her I have never stayed in a hotel/motel that does that and have always had the room hanger and even without it, housekeeping has never come in. I think this is a ridiculous rule and Motel 6 is lucky nothing in our room was missing. We felt extremely violated and unsafe and were so happy to leave the next day. I will NEVER stay at a Motel 6 again!

Don't stay here if you don't want to bring roaches home with you or worry about what other bugs you may be carrying back with you.

No jacuzzi, bathroom ceiling falling down, noisy exhaust fan, exhaust fan dont even work, light in bathroom so dim had to leave door open, tv did not work, pool full of bugs, outside trashcans overflowed, sour milk sitting in walkway, supposed to check in at 4, did not check in till 5:30, had to meet friends for dinner all sweaty and nasty because we couldnt check in to take a shower. Totally ruined our vacation. Should get a full refund
