4/5 Good

It's close to my business meeting so I can get the sleep I need while costing much less than the convention center's hotel

2/5

You definitely get what you pay for here. I’ve stayed at plenty of Motel 6’s over the past year and this one was by far the worst. The room had a horrible smell, the room was filthy (floors,wall,etc..) the shower had hair hang on the wall from previous people and dirt and mold in the corners. Was also surprised there wasn’t a coffee maker, refrigerator, or microwave but we could do without those things. But to top things off, I had to go on a spider killing spree before I could get my daughter out of bed. I’m talking 10 spider in 20 minutes (IMO that’s a lot). Definitely won’t stay here again.
