Worst Motel my family and I have ever stayed in! No Kleenex, no shampoo, no lotion! Ice machine doesn't work! No refrigerator, no microwave. Front desk tried to kick us out because our names were not in the reservation! Makes no sense! Don't stay please.

Had stayed at this motel for 3 weeks before I suddenly ended up in the hospital so ended up not being able to stay my final night. Offered to move my stuff out of the room prior to leaving for the hospital as I was not sure if I was going to be admitted. Upon hospital admission had my family... More

Not impressed with this motel. Got a room for a night due to being displaced for the night. Checked in prior to going to work to ensure I had a place to stay for the night. Upon getting back from work I decided to wash my uniform for work. The laundry facilities on-site were disappointing as one washer was broken... More

The clientelle is extremely dodgy. Heard the police coming 3 times in a night, to 3 different rooms. Quite scary guests in this place. Avoid if you want to be safe. At the same time, the price is well above the average motel 6.

Stayed for two nights and wasn't thrilled. The highlight was the updated sink. The bed and pillow were comfortable. Everything else was basic. No extra amenities. They had a laundry room on sight. Close to freeways, gas stations and restaurants. Bed was made but sheets weren't changed. Tub also had a hole in it.

Was told upon check-in that we were being placed in a smoking room because we did not indicate nonsmoking preference in the comments box online. (We booked on the phone.) I asked for a discount and was denied. EVERYONE who stays there smokes, mostly - but not all - tobacco. Several guests appear to be long-term residents. The pool is... More

I stayed at this motel for 3 nights in June 2015. I had already driven 7000+ miles around the country, and was visiting a doctor in a nearby town.

This Motel 6 was immaculate. Maybe recently renovated. My only complaint is that you have to go to the lobby for coffee and the towels were like sandpaper. Staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions.
