So nasty & dirty! Money wasted, we left the same night. Rude management that wouldn't do anything to help us out. 14 weeks pregnant, I wanted to relax & this is what I get for $120 plus tax jacuzzi room

Right from check-in I found myself comparing Motel 6 to La Quinta across the street. I didn't mean to, but you see...I love love love LQ but for $35 less and for only 11 hours I figured I'd give Motel 6 a try. Big mistake. From being told "all hotels will give away your room" if you don't arrived by...

This place is disgusting! I cleaned the left side of the tub, right side is what they thought was clean. Found random pills in a drawer, was given dirty towels. The housekeeper came in to "clean" she sprayed something all over things, half wiped them down. Never once scrubbed the tub or turned water on to rinse it.

I forgot the lady’s name that checked me in and I must say she excelled with customer service. I had to go to an important business meeting and I was on crutches at that time. She was so generous by opening the door and offered if I needed help to walk to my door. She new I was in pain...

Very slow check in (your receipt is on a dot matrix printer). Carpet was dirty, sink was clogged, room smelled like cigarettes, and overall this was an old and outdated room. Yet I walked by lots of empty updated rooms. In addition, all rooms are supposed to be non-smoking but the hotel has sand filled pots for ash trays right...

This Motel 6 has a drive through check-in. But that's not all. It comes with a menu of shifty characters and a room scented with Crack smoke. The McDonald's next door drive-thru is open all night which is convenient if you have a car. Don't leave pet food on the floor because by morning the ants will be all over...

Absolutely the worse Motel 6 I have ever stayed. The room was dirty and reeked of cigarette smoke. I witnessed drug use in the parking lot and a loud prostitute occupied the room next to mine. I have given up on Motel 6 after staying at this location.

Went to stay here with my family. Check in, the lobby smells of cigarettes. Drive around to our room, see a drug deal in the parking lot. Open the door to the room...walls are filthy, tubs dirty, smells gross. Go back to the lobby and request a refund and they offer me another room and an upgrade. Head to new...
