The location was great.
The beds were awful too springy like staying in Gramma's attic during a blizzard. The TV was an old fat back leaning terrible forward looked like it was gonna fall off . The shower rod was all wrong it needed to be on a curved rod,the bottom of the tub very slippery. No bath mat it was just a hand towel. The only ice machine we could find was in the lobby the tray under it looked a bit moldy. The free coffee tasted like 3 week old sludge. No tissues or any toiletries .
I needed an economical but decent room for a recent training seminar. This Motel 6 fit the bill very well. the location was both clean and neutral smelling and had staff at the desk almost constantly. My room was clean, well prepared and comfortable. For my simple and utilitarian needs this was a good fit. When a problem arose with paperwork to submit for reimbursement (reservation through booking.com) it was the Motel 6 staff that found the solution and not booking.com...certainly not booking.com.
The coffee could have been out earlier or in fact all day. I am an early riser and coffee wasn't out until after I was on my way.
The room was clean and smelled fresh. It was simple and there was plenty of counter space. The room wasn't fancy, but it was perfect for the nights stay I needed. The bathroom was very clean as well. I liked their bathtub/shower.
The towels were really small and not very soft. They served their purpose.
Everything was perfect
clean and modern
no decaf coffee or hot water for tea
For the dollar it was a nice place. The room and bathroom were quite big. The staff was very friendly!
