Do not stay here!

Reviewed 18 june, 2021

Where do I begin? This motel is totally ghetto!! The rooms have been renovated, but they do not clean them at all! From the first moment when we entered the room we noticed all of the dirt and debris on the floor. There was a trail of black ant on the counter below the tv. There was all kinds of long black hair on the floor in the bathroom. They allow dogs to stay for free which was nice, but when I let my dogs go do their business in the center courtyard the entire place was covered in dog poop, so disgusting. The ghetto employees were walking around cussing really loud for the guests to hear them which was very rude. The WiFi hear is non existent, we couldn’t stream anything during our stay. The grounds outside the hotel are waist high in weeds and it looks like the outside had been neglected for years. It’s sad to write this review because my husband and I stayed here like 10 years ago and it was a lot nicer then. Needless to say we will never return here ever again!

Basic, but decent motel

Reviewed 3 june, 2021

Very basic hotel, no fridge/microwave/coffee machine/alarm clock/shampoo in the room, no breakfast, but the room felt recently renovated and very clean, with hardwood floors. There is also laundry at the hotel. The location is not convenient to anything. The staff were friendly. Seems a bit pricey all things considered.

Price Gauging, Dangeous, Unacceptable

Reviewed 1 february, 2021

We stayed here over the weekend of January 30th. We had seen the hotel advertised for $240 on Expedia, which seemed a little high, but I understand supply and demand. We decided we would book at the hotel when we got in. We arrived at 12p and tried to make a reservation in the office. The woman told us to go on the internet because it is now $700/night, and that check in isn't until 3p. We couldn't believe it, but she was right. Within a few hours the price had gone up to $700. I tried calling every vacation rental, hotel, anything. There was nothing available. We would have just left, but we had 5 kids with us and they had their first skiing lessons scheduled for the morning. We booked 2 rooms at the hotel (for $1400!!) and came back at 3p to check in, only to be told there were 2 housekeepers for 90 rooms and we would have to wait to be notified when our rooms were ready. We sat in our car, with the 5 kids, for almost 5 hours. The line outside the office continued to grow and people were getting more and more agitated. My husband went into check on our status, and someone was trying to start a fight with him when he finally got our keys. When we got in the room, the beds only had sheets, no blankets, for 20° weather outside. There were no soaps or shampoos, and one of our rooms had cigarette butts on the floor. This was not really a surprise, given the fact that the housekeeping staff were under such tremendous pressure to clean the rooms. I tried to call the office to request a blanket later, but could not get through. By 9p, there was a huge crowd outside the office, I thought a riot was going to break out. I understand the concept of increasing the prices when there is a high demand; but this was blatant price gauging. Going from $200 to $700 in a matter of hours is ridiculous. Not to mention, these practices created a very dangerous situation for the guests, the housekeepers, and the front desk staff. They are lucky that no one (hopefully) was injured. I will never return to a Motel 6. Those are unethical business practices, with only profits in mind. Horrible.

Overpriced Homeless Shelter

Reviewed 9 july, 2020

After checking in we got to the room and it had a strong smell of cigarette butts. The bathroom floor was disgusting. And a vent in the ceiling was falling down. The room next door had a homeless lady in a wheelchair next sitting in the doorway of the room smoking. I changed rooms, and the second room was fine, but there was a homeless guy sitting in an empty parking space right outside our room. The next day there was a homeless guy just walking in circles around the parking lot. The hotel is not in a bad area, but I've never felt more unsafe at this hotel.

Convenient and clean

Reviewed 9 november, 2019

We bought a cabin in this area and went up for the inspection. We knew it would take several hours and decided to stay up there until the next day. We picked Motel 6 for the price and location. The front office staff was wonderful. The room was clean, and perfect for an overnight stay for us and our little old lady dog. We slept well and were impressed by the peace and quiet. I would definitely recommend this establishment. There was one negative, the red, orange, black and white decor is best viewed at night with the lights off! Furnishings are very. “Modern” and hard edged. The room had no welcoming or cozy touches.
