I generally use lowest cost accommodations, so often use Motel 6. They tend to range from OK to a great deal. This one is absolutely the WORST one I have ever used. I had the impression that it is about to fall apart and someone is milking the last few dollars from a decaying structure. When I walked down the...

This motel had the only available rooms during graduation weekend. Usually Motel 6 is clean but no frills. This one was not clean. The carpet was soiled, bedspread stained, bathtub looked dirty (we opted not to shower), very loud due to thin walls, was nonsmoking but still smelled smokey. I observed the manager cleaning the lobby by dumping paper cups...

I enjoyed my stay here.The staff is friendly & my room was very clean & quiet & they have wifi.I will stay here again the next time I'm in this area as it is also just off the interstate 70 exit 204.Not much for amenities but there is a Burger King in walking distance & Dominos Pizza delivery.

I too had some reservations about staying at the Motel 6 based on some of the previous reviews, but we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was large and clean, and we slept well. The hotel is half renovated, we still had carpet in our room, but had some of the other new amenities, like the flat screen TV...

Nothing special. Large room. The microwave and fridge were a major plus. Clean but an overall sense of dinginess. Shower meant for short people, though. Just a place to sleep and move on. The lobby did serve fresh hot coffee for breakfast. Hotel was quiet.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a group for an animal show at the fairgrounds. I was very leary of staying here, due to the other bad reviews and my own bad experience at a Motel 6 many years ago. Much to my surprise, this hotel was just fine. It appears that it is under new management and...

We stayed here the night before our tour of KU. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and when exiting the elevator, a vacuum sitting in the middle of the haul greeted us, followed by one of the first room doors being open, with a young child waving a pillow to air out the room while the mother was cooking...

Unbelievable. I travel for work and have worked in 24 countries, this one is the worst for sure. All the other reviews are accurate, dirty, run down, no amenities, and worst of all, sketchy as hell. So far in two days, I have see someone fall asleep and overfill a bathtub, running down all 3 floors. I walk by and...

Motel 6 web site says lowest price , this is untrue, single at this location was 79.00/ with no coffee pots, no shampoos, no nothing, this is a bare bones overpriced motel, it is an embarrissing franchise that claims to be so inexpensive, boycott this motel 6 and any others, there is way better franchises for a lot less money,...

Never again! This hotel is run down! Parked and went through door needing key but opened easily without. Passed windows open in halls without screens. Got to our room and noticed no pillowcases (they did bring them very quickly) some were yellow. Masking tape along ceiling hanging there, holes cut in ceiling tiles for sprinkler heads, our window was foggy...
