Bar walls and hard beds. No where to set anything, no storage, no clock, no micro, no fridge or coffee pot. No room to move around, was a very bare miminum room for $100 a night. Had to spray Lysol for odor. Cancelled our return stay.

All the noise. I checked in around 2:30. 1st thing is the remote to the TV was missing the back cover and the batteries kept falling out. 2nd, I had to keep unplugging the heater because it was so loud it woke me up. 3rd, at around midnight the room above me starting a party or something. Dragging chairs across the floor was really loud. I finally decided to leave around 1 am. Not worth staying just to toss and turn.

This was our 6th visit to this property. It is in a great location for our north/south travel. It is clearly well-cared for, always clean and comfortable, and staff is helpful. We, of course, appreciate the fact that all Motel 6 properties are pet-friendly!

I didn't like that there wasn't many towels, and no shampoo or conditioner. But the lady that checked us in was really nice and courteous.

Thank you for giving us feedback. We're sorry about not enough towels in room. We as a Motel 6 franchise provide almost no amenities in rooms but we have most items at the front desk if you need them. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will give us another chance.
