It's not the Hilton, clearly. But when paying 100 bucks a night, one would expect something slightly better. A non-smoking room that tells of smoke. A hotel that charges for the internet (who does that these days???????!??), And an area that feels unsafe at any time of the day: no thanks. The staff is quite friendly, i must say!

The reviews are real, if you do choose to stay here after reading thru all of this and other reviews, I recommend asking to stay on the north side (entrance side). I had called early in the day and requested a late check in and the staff was great, totally understanding our situation and let me know I would be...

This is a very basic room. No extras. But also no extra parking fees, etc. Bring your own toiletries. Yes, it is in an area populated with homeless people but they didn't do anything to bring attention to themselves. Beds were comfortable enough for a one-night stay and room price allowed us to have extra $ to spend on other...

The location is great if you are looking to spend time at the market square which is just across the freeway. Other than that, I'd look somewhere else. There is a freeway on one entrance and a bus station on the other so there was a lot of foot traffic through the parking lot at all hours of the night....

We chose this hotel because it was reasonably close to Riverwalk, a good price, and there was free parking, didn't want to pay $250 for a room and $50 to park the car and then pay for valet fee. The drawbacks are this hotel does not supply shampoo etc. no fridge, very basic and no continental breakfast. Also it is...

Stayed there New Years Eve night. I read some reviews before going so I knew what to expect. I brought a can of Lysol spray and some disinfectant wipes to go over key areas in order to feel more comfortable about staying there. Although the immediate surroundings are a bit shady, the location is very near the Market and the...

I have used Motel 6 for years, and have always been satisfied. The rooms I've stayed in are economical and sufficient for what my family and I need. So I expected more of the same this go around. I was horribly disgusted by what we found. The pictures Motel 6 advertises the place with are flat out LIES. The room...

Worst hotel I've stayed in so far! Water pressure sucked, paint chipping off in the tub, the light builds were out. Dirty old food packages were left in the room . No amenities like microwave refrigerator iron, etc. I wound never recommend to anyone. A lot of people hanging around back of parking lot.

For one there are people walking all around the parking lot. Some are waiting for the bus since there's a big bus stop across the street but then there is also a big group of homeless people in the area. Room was disgusting and dirty. There was used ear swabs on the floor. And hair everywhere when we came into...
