We were in need of just a place to sleep before we got back on the road. I read the reviews, and saw that several people said that it was not a great place, but at least a clean room to spend the night. So I reserved the room while we were traveling. We arrived at about 10:30. I walked...

On a trip to Williamsburg, I checked out the reviews for all the surrounding motels. Motel 6 had the best rate and some good and some not so good reviews. I found this to be true. Room was clean, Bed was OK, slept well, Hot water and water pressure was good. AC worked good. The outside is in need of...

First and last stay at a Motel 6...dirty and smelly, bugs smashed on wall!! Left early without even showering as we couldn't get out fast enough. Unfortunately, late night decision to stop while traveling through.

Stayed one night on my way home from Wyoming to Ohio. I was exhausted and had my dog with me so I was looking for a Motel 6 because I know they allow pets for free and the rooms are usually cheap. When you walk into the lobby area, the place smells a little old and musty. The desk person...

This place was so gross! Pubic hair on and around tub. Smelled like old cigarettes. Carpeting coming up from the sides. Very sketchy surrounding building. Tolite did not flush. The t.v was old and decrepit. Cable was in and out. We stayed about 5-10 min and left. On a postive note, the front desk man was not shocked in the...

Upon arrival the staff was not friendly, we heard crickets in the hallway of the hotel, and it smelt bad. The room smelt bad as well. The pillows were only about 1 inch thick. Everything in the room looked drab and old. The towels were stained. The bathtub didn't look clean, and the stopper was missing. We didn't even have...
