The first room we got was a handicap room and you can tell how dirty the bathroom was. The next morning we woke up to get a different room. It was better but the bathrooms are out of date.

Beds were very comfortable. Toilet was way too low, I felt like I was sitting on the floor. There was no safety bars in bathtub.

We were at this Motel 6 for just one night, but were nervous staying, due to other reviews. However, we found the motel to be clean, safe and quiet (even though the motel was quite full). We've found that Motel 6's seem to range all over the place in quality - this one was one of the better ones. We always bring our own shampoo, soap, etc so this was not an issue for us. All staff we interacted with were extremely friendly.

Recent renovations were clean and modern. The interstate traffic was still terrible despite us being at the front of the building, but was otherwise private and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful and would definitely stay again.

Room was very tiny. Lack of extra blankets. There was a plastic bottle back behind bed in corner that was not ours. Some crumbs in hidden areas. Workers were friendly. Good location. Bring soap and a hair dryer
