The funky smoke and a K-9 visit

Posted Jan 5, 2016
Pros: Great staff and apologetic when we ran into the wacky tabacky.
Cons: Kleenexes in the room and no cigarette burn marks in the comforters.
Location: Safe area surrounded by other nicer hotels.
So we checked in a little after midnight. Unlike many Motel 6s, this one was in a safer area and surrounded by other more upscale facilities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When we checked in and walked down the hallway at the opposite end of the office to get our room, we noticed some funky smells in the hallway. We could smell it by our room and after a second trip to the car to gather stuff and identifying the source of the wacky tabacky smell based on the room to the door being opened, we called the front desk and she apologized, sounded frustrated with the problem she was going to have to take care of (frustration was completely understandable). We went back to the front desk and she moved our room and told us she was calling the police. No further issues that night. When we returned in the morning to check out, the front desk lady informed us the K-9 unit was called in and arrests were made. The comforters had some cigarette burn marks and the room lacked any Kleenex. The price was right on for what I came to expect but the little amenities - like Kleenex, even for a cheap room, should have been provided in the room.

The room was comfortable. Nothing fancy. They didn't provide shampoo, but I had some, and imagine they have it if you ask. The staff was friendly and helpful. They provided a razor and shaving cream when I had forgotten mine. Good place for the price.

Cons: Better beds for sure
Bed was uncomfortable with poor water pressure. Those are two things I really hope for (main two things) when I'm on the road for business.

Not impressed.

Bedding had burn holes in it. Smelled of smoke. Floors were dirty. Lights didn't work. Beds were very uncomfortable. Have stayed at many Motel 6 and this was by far the worse.
