Motel 6 seems to have a reputation among smokers that if you rent a non smoking room, it only means the bedroom is non smoking. The bath room, the hall ways, and the lobby all smell like nasty smoke scum. In the bedroom you must keep outside air coming in the AC/heating or the horrible smell from the other areas will come into the bedroom during the night while you are sleeping. I am allergic to cigarette smoke, so the invading smell will wake me up because I begin to gag. Smokers who rent a non smoking room and smoke in that room are stealing from customers who need a non smoking room, very unfair! This is the second Motel 6 room that I have rented with this problem.

I've stayed at this hotel before with no problems. When I checked in this time the initial room that I was in had stuff still in the toilet that wouldn't flush and there was dried sticky stuff on the bathroom floor as well as handprints on the headboard and greasy stuff on the table. Obviously not cleaned well with just a quick look around. Nobody answered when I called down to the lobby so I had to go down there. When I did, I found out there was nobody to fix the toilet so I was given a different (much smaller) room on the 1st floor (I had requested a 2nd floor room initially). Not a great start. The second room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was exactly what I had expected from my previous stays after the rocky start.
