It was quiet room needed cleaned better. Buggers on stand

Absolutely disgusting. The room was dirty the sheets looked dirty. There were stains on the wall. The floor was coming up in one spot. It didn’t look like they gave me clean towels. The woman when I checked in was nice. The guy when I checked out.. was sleeping at the front desk.

Front desk staff is very friendly, but the hotel is starting to be run down and is not like the other ones I’ve stayed at. Great location, easy on/off from I80, I got a good price. Beds are getting rough. Floors are rough and getting dirty. If you are needing a spot for sleep on a journey then sure.... if you are here for more than 1 night then I’d say to look elsewhere.

Very dirty rooms... mold on the floors and baseboards, all table tops were covered in a sticky substance, and stains on the sheets (looked like blood).

Cheap but old and dirty smelly would not recommend children

I was staying there for just a night and you could tell they take being very clean serious my hotel was very nice, and very Clean it was a great experience, the customer service was great A , thank you to the staff at motel 6

The room was very disturbing and nasty! We slept in our clothes just because we were to tired to pack up and find another hotel.

Close to all you would want! Hard to find on g p s ! Side road told me to cross through fence,ditch,over hill. Goggle maps.

Everything was good. Don't know what else to say, all was as expected.

Hotel seemed ok but refused to let ys stay because Im nit 21. I already paid Orbitz, gad my depisit and ID. I dont understand and hope I can get a refund.

It’s cheap, and that’s why we stay here. It’s by a ran down flying J, adventure land, and the casino. Those are good perks. You get what you paid for and we knew what to expect. The one staff member was super relaxed and nice. Check in was simple.

Dirty.. poop on walls.. no extra pillows.. pool closed..
