Super friendly staff, spacious rooms and VERY clean room! Great location to food as well as I-95. Wifi is great, added bonus is the wifi is free (most Motel 6's will charge you). Beds are super comfy!

I checked into this hotel on a Friday night on drive from Florida to New York. I was planning on staying at this hotel because of location , price, 3 beds, and pet friendly. Upon checking in I went to the room to check it out before I got 3 boys, my wife and small dog out. Best thing I... More

I'm not sure if the rooms were recently upgraded, but my room was outstanding. It was a clean and upbeat unit with big-screen TV, refrigerator (with freezer), and a micro-wave; as well as a desk, dresser, and small table with chairs. Oh yes... and free wi-fi too. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Very close by is a truck... More

Very friendly staff and very helpful. Rooms need some up grading but are clean and could use more tv stations. Easy entry on and off of interstate 95. There are several places within walking distance to eat.

Motel 6 is located right off 95 which makes it extremely convenient. There are several fast food and sit down restaurants in walking distance. They do not serve breakfast but have coffee set up in the morning. The room was clean and they do not charge for pets. Our room was near the laundry which was not a problem, but... More

Me and my BFF needed to stay in a motel near or around Smithfield, NC. I researched the motels to get a feel of where we wanted to stay at a reasonable price. Also, check out the reviews to decide where we will be saying. You know, you get what you pay for. And the Motel 6 in Kenly was... More

Booked this hotel based on the reviews here. Reviews are WRONG. We checked into our room and found hair and brown stains on our sheets...globs of dried up food on the walls....thick dust on the furniture. Went to request a new room and stood in lobby for 20 minutes waiting for someone to show up. Another customer came in looking... More

Motel 6 Kenly, NC- Great little place to stay on the way to/from Eukanuba dog show! Good location with food and gas. Large field behind the building for dogs to run. The room was clean, has laminated floor, new painted walls, and new furniture. The beds and linens still need an upgrade, but for $51/night it was an excellent place... More

“My room was on the front of the building, two units in from the parking lot end. I was never bothered by traffic or truck-stop sounds.”

“I always ask for ground floor room with clean bedding. It's never happened here but some of the cheaper 1-star properties don't always replace bedding between guests. If you are an AARP member you get 10% off if discount code is entered when making reservation. Also, if you are running late at this particular property it is good to call if you are running late and will arrive after 9pm. I don't think they would re-sell your room, but you might wind up on the upper level of a motel with only steps to get there.”

“We arrived around 6:30 PM and got the last room available on the ground floor, so you probably need to arrive early if that is an issue for you.”
