I had to move my first room because it smelled of stale smoke. Second room not much better. The remote doesn't work so I have to go back to the office again. The room is very dark and appointed like a 1960's dorm room. The office staff were nice though. I got what I paid for I guess.

I did not realize how hard it would be to find a room for the IU graduation weekend. Thought I was lucky to find a room so close to campus. The joke was on me. If I paid $45 for this room I would not be complaining. But when they jackup the the cost 3xs that to gouge parents on...

Never again. The "non-smoking" room reeked of cigarette smoke. The floor was sticky. It was just disgusting. The key stop working, the TV barely functioned and oh by the way, they don't provide shampoo. Plus since it was graduating weekend, the price was jacked up.

Rooms are your basic Motel 6 without the 6 year old boys comforters, thank god! Internet is available but is so slow it is useless. The rooms are dated and some of the plaster and paint is pealing. If your looking for a clean basic room at a cheap price this is the place to stay.

I was on a trip to visit my daughter at IU for a day. My only necessity was to have a place to shower and lay my head down. Motel 6 fit the bill. All the other big chains wanted over double what I paid. The staff was friendly, allowed me a late check out. Parking was right outside my...

This is a budget motel centrally located in a college town. One shouldn't have to say much more than that, but after reading the other reviews, perhaps a bit more explanation is needed. It's a budget motel. That means that people without a lot of money stay here. They might have kids. They may not treat the place like a...

I stayed here for three nights in late October 2013 and had a nice stay. Big room with a comfortable queen size bed and a great heating unit that was easy to operate. The staff was very helpful and accommodating exuding a wonderful mid west pleasantness that I have come to love and appreciate when in Indiana. This hotel is...

I got the impression this is a full time residential property. First room stunk of cig' smoke, second room wasn't much better. People were lounging about the property, repairing cars,and openly smoking whilst laid on beds with the doors open. Bed covers were disgusting, heavily stained. No thanks motel 6.

A wonderful looking old motor court inn but inside this was THE most basic place and completely overpriced. Lino floors! Cigarette smoke smell. Cigarette burns on the bedcovers. Towel rail fell on the ground when we tried to hang a towel on it. No breakfast. No coffee. There was wi-Fi - BUT it didn't work. Awful. If we had had...

I was in town for a wedding and since it was going to be a short stay, we booked the cheapest hotel in the area (we wouldn't be in the room much anyway). I can say this was close to one of the poorest lodging facilities I have ever stayed in. But of course it's a motel 6, what did...
