Horrible, dirty, unsafe Motel Six
Reviewed 6 September, 2021
This was one of the few remaining hotels that I could afford during the Indian Market 2021. I wish I had walked away from it and just slept in my car in the Walmart parking lot -- I would've gotten more rest and probably been safer.
To start, our door would not properly close, and the deadbolt would not line up such that I could latch it! It appeared from the outside to have been kicked in before - you could see indentations on the door. I called the front desk, and the only room left was smoking. I could not do that due to allergies and not wanting to smell smoke residue all night long. I was finally able to latch the deadbolt by lifting the door just enough to get it to line up.
After we barricaded the door with chairs and suitcases, I checked the window latch. It was not latched. I was unable to latch it well at first. Finally, I was able to force down a small piece of plastic less than 1/4" deep into the window sill. That was all that protected us from someone sliding the window open.
On top of the serious safety issues, the main bathroom light was going out. We only had the shower light to see by. The phone handle was grimy and dirty. The bathroom blow dryer was grimy and dirty. There were hairs on the bedspread. And the walls were paper thin. Our next door neighbors started snorting and sniffling around 3 am ... followed by sneezing. And loud talking. The people above trampled around all night long. What sounded like the wheels of a shopping cart rolling by around 4 am outside our window. Kids screaming at 5am outside. Police sirens at midnight. The place seemed to be a hangout spot for illicit activity, from what I could tell.
All I could do was pray we made it through the night. Do not stay here! For all my trouble, I was offered 10% discount....that amounted to $12. Big deal! You're life is worth more than $12.
Avoid this location at all costs.

I made my reservations over a month in advance. They kept misspelling my name so I was not receive any confirmation emails, I called multiple times to get those. The week of my reservation I called to let them know I will need a late check in, they said no problem. I got there before the time I had specified I would arrive and they told me I had to be there before 6pm because the rooms aren’t guaranteed if they’re not paid at reservation time but they took all my info and never asked if I wanted to pay “now or later”. I was highly upset as it was 12am and we just finished driving 8+ hours. The next day I was told by locals that this motel is extremely dangerous. Lots of prostitution, drug deals, overdoses, homicides, suicide etc happen there. There is a situation where a guest was attacked and was left in a coma because they did not have drugs to give the attacker. I understand motels aren’t the best to stay at but this one is a definite PASS. Use extreme caution if you have to stay here.
If I could give it zero stars I would.

If I could give this a zero I would. Our reservation through hotels.com which was already paid for was literally thrown away because we “hadn’t checked in by 6pm or called to let them know we would be later.” We were then charged again at a higher price, which was later refunded (after a hassle, the gal at the front desk said this was her first week on the job).The non-smoking room has obviously been smoked in. The floor is filthy, seriously gross. There was hair in between the sheets of both beds, unlike any hair on any of our heads. The room was so dirty I wiped every surface excluding the floor, and the surfaces were filthy. I used a tape roller to get all the hair out of the beds. I have stayed in lots of hotels in the $50 range and have never been so seriously concerned with the level of filth.
Worst stay ever

bathroom outlets don't work, TV doesn't work. Loud noises everytime toilet is used by either room on each side. Melissa garcia is unkind and uncaring. Do not stay here, do not help this place stay open.
Single night stay works fine

Stayed here 1/21 after long drive from Amarillo. Stopped at another Motel 6 on the same road and no one answered the door so this place is the winner. Donnie did a fast job getting be checked in, and got me a first floor room. Room was small, but clean. Lots fo tv channels, no wifi signal, and no instructions in the room anyway. No shampoo either. But the bed was comfy, pillows were good, It works for $55, and has a good location.
