I happened to be traveling back home (to Wisconsin) from Tennessee on a busy graduation weekend, and this hotel was the best deal I could find to break up a 12 hour drive. The people working the front desk could not have been nicer, and the room was clean-- though it did smell a bit like stale smoke. But I...

I asked for a room downstairs and near the front staff. Being a senior lady I feel safer being near the front desk. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and the room very clean. You do just get the basics no breakfast or other amenitie.There is coffee in the morning at the front desk. The price was very reasonable and...

The rooms were clean and comfortable with many restaurants nearby. The front desk staff was friendly and the housekeeping staff as well :) I will be back to visit again soon! Granted they don't have all the frills that you get at a 4 or 5 star hotel, but when you need a place for a good night's sleep this...

Stayed for one night and that's all we wanted. It was very clean but the bed was like laying on a wood plank. Very basic. Air handler barely worked and the walls are THIN! No breakfast,no extras like a pool. Service desk however was nice. NO BUGS

We decided to make a last minute trip to Brown County in October, everything was booked or the prices had been raised drastically. This was 15 miles outside of Nashville which was not a bad drive at all. The room was, as others have mentioned, very basic but clean. It was a decent stay and met expectations for the price....

We were ready to call it a night after a long day of travel. After passing on some rather scary-looking budget motels in Scottsburg, Indiana, we pressed on further north to Columbus hoping for more options. Our first two stops in Columbus were fully booked. We rolled the dice and decided to stay here for $55 a night. While I...

I was driving from Michigan to Alabama for a long weekend in February 2016 and was needing a place to crash in Columbus on a Friday night. This particular Motel 6 fit the bill.

Stayed here just to crash for the night while traveling for the holidays. Front desk worker was very friendly and helpful. Remodeled and clean room but no Kleenex, hair dryer, refrigerator, coffee maker or microwave and towels were VERY thin. Coffee was provided in the morning at the hotel office.

Well, first let me thank the amazing desk clerk (who also mentioned being the general manager) Kristina (I believe she said that was her name).
