Checked out at midnight to find another hotel Pros: NothingCons: Room wasn't cleaned. Was put in a smoking room when I requested non-smoking. They were totally booked so I couldn't change rooms.
Good value for pricePros: Clean, newly remodeled. No mystery odors. Wooden floors so no carpet yuck to worry about. Friendly staff. Minimal, no frills, but a great value for budget travelers. Cons: Minimal bed linens. No blanket. No microwave but the pictures show microwave and frig. Wifi is not included - $2.99 a day extra but clearly disclosed in advance.
Good Basic Motel Pros: Staff was nice, bed was comfortable, close to convenience/grocery stores & restaurants, parking was close to the roomCons: Exterior was a little dirty, asked to not have maid service morning after I checked in & next day they serviced the room,
Pretty Good All AroundPros: It was close to the highway but still very quiet. The rooms were large with plenty of outlets. The shower had plenty of force for the water. Nice flat panel TV with good sound.Cons: As typical with Motel 6 you have to pay for WiFi. What's worse is that you can't pay online. Nope, you have to go back to the front desk to pay and then they give you a code to log on. Weak WiFi signal which again is common with Motel 6. Only other complaint? The floors in my room were dirty. After taking a shower and walking into the room I had to every time wipe my feet off before getting in bed. The room was cleaned but the floors were never touched.
