I have had to stay for an extended period of time. I am a newly discharged (honorably) army vet with ptsd alongside many other issues. The staff has been so amazing both to me in general, and understanding the challenges I may face. While being apart from my family, the staff and facility has provided me with a temporary place of solice.
It was quite.
It was way overpriced.
We booked a room through Booking.com via KAYAK . There was no opportunity on the site to specify a non-smoking room. It never occurred to me while I was making the reservation that I would need to specify. The clerk said we should have reserved through the Motel 6 site. As they were full except for one non-smoking room, we had to choose whether to stay in a tobacco permeated room or cancel our reservation & find another place to stay. The clerk let us into the room to help us decide if we could tolerate it. When we decided we had to find another hotel, they cancelled our reservation without any problems. This is not a critique of Motel 6. I am very disappointed that Booking.com and/or KAYAK didn't allow me to choose a non-smoking room in advance or at least redirect me to the Motel 6 reservation site where I could have selected a non-smoking room.
I was impressed by the updated design in the interior. Fun! All the basic amenities were there, with a pool to boot. This is an outstanding value.
There was quite a bit of noise leakage from the walkway outside our door. The room key had to be reset a few times. The coffee came in styrofoam cups (but hey, it was free!)
The hardwood floors in the rooms were very nice, as was having the towels in little cubbies.
everything is brand new... clean, good value for money...
The rate was less expensive at the hotel than I paid for the Sunday night.
The interior of the rooms have recently been remodeled into a euro-modern style.While the rooms are small and lack amenities they are very clean and comfortable for the money and good location.
The rooms were recently renovated. The room layout and furnishings made the room feel less like a budget establishment.
