It was a pleasant stay, the rooms are quite nice inside. It is a good value if you are in need of a place to stay. There is no coffee pot in the room, but there is a Starbucks across the street. But sometimes it is nice to have that cup first thing in your room. There is a microwave...

We had planned to stop in either Lynden or Birch Bay but there was no where that would take a pet. We were directed to drive down the highway to Ferndale and stay at the Motel 6. On checking in yes they take pets but you get tossed into a back room with terrible renos not very nice really musty...

I stayed at the Ferndale Motel 6 for 2 nights in mid-September. The property is a right off of the freeway and a short walk (and even shorter drive) to the downtown strip. The room was very spacious, clean and modern. The only drawback was that there was a locked door in my room (room 203) leading to the neighboring...

This motel was right off the freeway and yet close to parks and town. Dairy Queen right around the corner. Pleasant surroundings, room comfortable and very clean. Microwave and refrigerator but no coffee pot although coffee available at office.

Motel 6 is a budget hotel of course. You need to have the right expectations. My check in was late and through the night window, a bit creepy but okay. There was a sign: No local guests, I guess I know what they don't want in their hotel, and that's probably a good thing for the tired travelers spending the...

We haven't stayed at a motel 6 for quite some time but since this had a king size bed and was decently priced in the area we were staying for the night we booked it. We were surprised to see the modern day look in the room. The bed was more comfortable than we thought it would be. The floor...

Staff are nice, floor is laminate which is better than nasty carpet, but the mattress was awful, no noise insulation and unit beside me was very noisy. There was brown water that initially came out of the shower, and the tub was disgusting. WIFI is so bad it is equivalent to not existing.
