2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
I was first without the heat working and the place seemed just basic and cheap. The neighborhood around was loud and mostly the no heat is the biggest problem to sleep that night I stayed.

The cockroaches in the room were not a welcome site and it is very noisy. The front desk staff was not friendly. Did not say hello just asked for ID, checked me in, gave me my room key, and that was it. Will not stay at another Motel 6!

This place was awful pulled up to where my room was and there was a bunch of people outside doing drugs and just wondering around. I ended up leaving it was so awful and just felt unsafe for my family. Wish I could of got a refund or offered a room at one of there sister companies cause I wouldn’t let my worst enemies stay at this place. Just awful 😞
