This is a typical Motel 6.... if all you are looking for is a bed, then you are good. Do not reserve a king bed as they no longer have them after their remodel. Rooms are decent inside due to remodel but hallways and exterior are pretty dirty and dingy.

4/10 Fair

Spend $30 more and stay somewhere else
The room was clean but the property was more or less a flop house. There were homeless people living in the parking lot. The parking lot was being used as a repair garage there were vehicles in various stages of disassemble making parking difficult. There were broken beer bottles and syringes scattered throughout the property.

Decent Value, but could have been better
For the price, it was an expected value. One of the night stands had electric plug-ins and a light that had no power. The wife was just below average for my taste. The ice machine situation was disappointing. The room was clean and looked like it had been updated fairly recently.

Not what I had (or what was) pictured. Disappointi
I needed a place with short notice, so I used your service to find something with good location at reasonable price. I reserved a basic room with King sized bed. What I got was a single room with a much smaller bed (not even Queen). The staff was friendly enough, but the room was not what I expected. It didn’t have a closet. The bathroom fixtures were pretty worn and they didn’t even have tissues or extra toilet paper in the room. It was pretty bare bones and not as advertised. I won’t be reserving a room at that location again.

2/10 Poor

It was awful. The bathroom was extremely tiny and claustrophobic. The sink wasn’t even in the bathroom. The room spelled horribly of bleach and made us all sick. We didn’t sleep at all. There was just 2 beds in the room, nowhere to sit to eat. We tried to open the window and could only open it a few inches to get fresh air and it had a few inches of black mold. It’s no wonder we were feeling ill.
