No pool, no fitness center, no breakfast. The room was a good layout, but the carpet in the room turned your feet black because it was so dirty. The balcony had spider webs all over it, and a water bottle filled with cigarette butts. Doesn't look like they ever clean the balcony.
I love this property stay there whenever in the area and highly recommend the penthouse the biggest steal in town. The front desk staff is the best customer service I’ve seen in a long time and the maintenance and cleaning crew are also excellent. Look forward to my next visit.
VERY NICE PLACE. WOULD GO BACK AGAIN. WISH POOL WOULD HAVE BEEN OPEN.
Clean room and friendly staff. Best Motel 6 I have ever scene. Thank you 😊
