THE MOTEL WAS SCARY BAD!! First I couldn't get the door to my room open, it was warped, or something??? When I finally did get it open, of course it was hard to shut. My first thought was, I couldn't get out in a fire!! Proceeded into the room........ NO carpet, not even nice linoleum, just cold & hard, like...

Glad I didn't read the reviews before I stopped. My room was clearly recently updated. It had the faux hardwood floors that are becoming more common. The bed was firm but not a board. Quite comfortable. The room was clean, the water hot for a shower, a great value.

We are traveling and just looking for a clean place to sleep with decent wifi. The wifi connected,but was weak. The king sized bed was ok. We could have used more than two pillows. I liked that we didn't have carpeting, but it made it more obvious that the floor wasn't clean. There was a lot of dust under the...

I usually stay here each September, the evening before "Radio Expo", a Ham Radio & Electronics flea market/convention held at the nearby Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere. I like the location and the overall appearance of this Motel 6, and staff and amenities have been good. Certainly fine for a solo traveler looking for a reasonably priced night's stay in...

Spiders spiders everywhere. We were in the middle of a trip south and were tired so we looked for the cheapest hotel in the area. This one fit the bill so we checked in around 10pm to get some shut eye. My wife spotted several spiders in the place, but I didn't see any, so we hit the sack. They...

Cheap hotel ( i think this is a budget hotel) with no breakfast ( even though they say they do, unfortunately they done). Good location, good room size, not so impressive other than those two good points.

I stayed there Monday August 10th. It was horrible. Floors were lifting. Footprints on the bathroom floor and in the bathtub. Sink faucet was deplorable. Bugs on the bathroom floor the next morning. It should be out of business and money should be refunded to all. Motel 6 should be ashamed. Traveler beware, there is no need for this. I...
