On line pictures looked lovely but not so much...flooring was coming up, bedspread was either ugly dirty or terribly stained, TV didn't work properly nor did heater/cooling unit.The front desk man tried to fix the TV but it still was far from satisfactory. Bathtub was chipped and a 6 year old must have done the painting and last but not...

I had a bad experience at this hotel, on Jan. 9th. I've tried to talk with manager, Frances. She isn't there, or she just stepped out. I'm getting a lot of excuses. Last time I called, I left a message for her to call me and was never been called back.

1. The location is great... Within easy walking distance of the wharf, waterfront and Little Italy. 2. Other reviews complain about aircraft noise....The name of the motel is AIRPORT Motel 6...Shouldn't that have given you a hint? We really found our 1st floor rooms to be quite quiet. 3. They provide a very inexpensive airport shuttle service in a clean,...

Yes, the planes fly right over the hotel close enough to see the people inside at times. It is loud outside but I was in the first floor and with the air conditioner on at night it was ok. It is 4 blocks walking distance to Little Italy so I took advantage of great weather after about 700 miles in...

We stayed here for our last night of our road trip before leaving the States. The receptionist was nice and the rooms were clean. But still... One of the rooms smelled of smoke, but the second one we looked at was ok. We took the third... On the plus side you can walk to little Italy and have dinner there,...

Stay at this Motel 6 for one night but didn't expect their rooms to look so runned down. I've stayed in a Motel 6 before and the rooms were pretty nice so I was a little thrown off on this Motel. I give them credit for their website pictures of the rooms because they can sell anyone that their rooms...

It's clear that the property has made some improvements, fresh paint, and updated rooms. Unfortunately, the room was a little dirty and it smelled very strong of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. The front office staff was very nice.

We picked this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had a 6:16AM flight and they advertised a shuttle to the airport. To save money we reserved the rental car with plans to return it in the evening before our flight, we thought this would save time as well as money. We arranged for a 4:30 shuttle...

The room was on the bottom floor as requested it went down hill from there. Sheets were dirty, floor was dirty. We were kept up both nights by loud non English speaking men outside of our door, specifically around 2:00 and 4:00 am. They didn’t seem like people that were staying there while working out of town. When we left...

I booked this motel last minute. The best prices were through the Motel 6 website. This was my first time at these motels. Normally staying at a hotel, comparing it to this stay wasn't to bad. The room was nice but you can tell it was an older motel that was re-done. None the less, it was still nice. At...

“This is directly across from the airport with planes flying directly overhead at very low altitudes. Downstairs rooms are a little quieter.”

“Second floor gives you privacy from the parking lot and enables you to have your own private balcony.”

“Just don't stay here unless you're a smoker and don't care about the air you breath in the shower!”

“Trolley runs late night and starts early morning; if you're sensitive to noise, don't stay on the east side next to the tracks. Planes do fly overhead (airport runway is literally across the street) all day; noise is worse upstairs than downstairs.”
