Fair2.0 / 5
Good summertime hotel
The temperature that evening was in the low 50s and the room had no heat. Would have been a great stay in the summer but not a good choice for wintertime.

Good3.0 / 5
Satisfied but not wowed customer.
You get what you pay for. If your looking for amenities this is not the place. If your looking to have a safe quiet place to sleep and shower this is the place. We stayed in room 126. It wasn't dirty but it wasn't exactly clean either. It's an older building and besides some not so recent coats of paint it hasn't really been updated. The smoke detector battery went low in the middle of the night on the second night, tried to sleep through the beeping until it stared screaming battery low. Had to get up and take it down. The staff was very apologetic at check out when we showed up with the alarm in hand. It did have a larger mini fridge and microwave which came in real handy. Would I stay there again... yeah. But I'm a person that would rather spend my cash on food, drinks, and activities and does not spend much time in a motel/hotel room.

Poor1.0 / 5
Horrible. And they stole 100 dollars from us. Made us give them 100 CASH deposit and claimed the room smelled like smoke, so they kept the 100 dollars. It now explains why she would not allow us to use credit card as deposit. The lady was rude and undesirable smell. She was fowl!!!!

Excellent4.0 / 5
Excellent choice for budget travel
You can park the car directly outside the entrance of your room, making moving in and out extremely easy. The room is spacious and clean. 6 minute drive to downtown. The place is quiet. The staff is courteous. The door of the bathroom cannot be closed fully. The card does not work for my room, so I used a physical key .

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Cheap clean room
Room was clean and had everything you need. We were gone all day during our 3 day stay and every time we returned it was clean and fresh towels were in the bathroom. Everything worked. The building is old but that doesn't take away from the room being everything you'd want when you're looking for a cheap place to stay. Mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a tv. I can't speak for the people who left horrible reviews for the place, but I don't expect the Hilton when I'm paying motel 6 prices. My experience was good and I'd stay here again.
