We stayed here for a number of years during our annual Route66 trip and it was always ok. Not very good but just ok. This year it had gone down the drain in a dramatic way. Filthy, unfriendly, loads of people hanging around the building seeming to deal in drugs. All in all a place to stay away from!

I thought I would stay here instead of driving home after a late night celebration. I did check in and asked the front desk to clean the bugs out of the bathroom. After the celebration, I decided I could not stay in this room despite paying for it. My version of remodeling must be different from Motel 6's version. One... More

Hotel looked presentable from the outside. I can't even give this hotel a rating but have to before I submit this review. We paid too much for (1) night . This hotel should be closed down. Reception area had a intoxicated guest when we arrived. On our way to our outside room the pool area was full of loud intoxicated... More

I understand that sometimes motels undergo new management, remodeling, or both at the same time. They try to keep in business during that time. But I have a problem with places that advertise services not available when I'm there or don'the reduce rates. This was the case with my latest stay. I suppose the shoddy condition of the hallways and... More

Should be a zero - beware that any decent reviews in the past 3 years are for the other Motel 6 down the road and not this one. There are really no words for this place but I'll try! Drug addicts lean up against exterior walls all night every night. The halls are beyond disgusting - looks like a condemned... More

I usually stay at Motel 6s when traveling alone, so I thought I knew what to expect. This place was filthy and scary. The hallways reeked of cigarette smoke (luckily the room didn't). There was a horseshoe shaped yellow stain of something in the carpet, and a sticky appearing white pile of goop next to it. This didn't really deter... More

I have stayed at dozens Of Motel 6s and i dont expect much. But this was the worst ever! Disgusting. Filthy grungy tiny damaged room. Toilet clogged. Security doors all broken. Never come here. Staff indifferent. Scummy people hanging around outside. Security lights outside not working.

Pretty nice motel, very easy to get to. The rooms were nice and clean. It is one of the updated motels.It is one of the updated Motel 6's. It has the laminated wood floors and the updated shower stalls. Which I prefer because you have a good opportunity to really get a clean room.

We went to Bloomington for a concert at the Castle Theater. Checked in swiftly, went to the concert, returned to the hotel to sleep and left early in the morning. Hotel is very basic, Motel 6 style. For my purpose, it was ok. I probably wouldn't return to stay more than one night.
