FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- After driving for 10 hours, we were very tired. We decided to spend the night at the Motel 6 in Fayetteville. The room price was ok but if we wanted WiFi it would cost another 2.99 for regular service or 4.99 for the premium service (which the desk clerk said didn't work?)! Little things do mean a lot like, there was no bar soap to wash hands, no Kleenex tissue, I needed a pen to write but no pen or paper was available, we found cereal on the floor and a dead fly. Top sheet of the bed a cigarette burn in it. Just didn't feel clean. We will not stay at any Motel 6. Don't trust them.
KOKOMO, INDIANA -- God what a dump! I can't believe they actually call this joint "remodeled"! The light switches have bright LED's in them that will keep you awake every time you roll over in bed and are made to look at them. Those same switches are on side of the bed that's farthest away from the bathroom, so any time you have to get up you have to walk AROUND the bed! The toilet was plugged up without me putting anything in it but a Kleenex! Great housekeeping - huh? God help you if you want to watch TV because the screen looks like you're viewing it through a window screen (the reception is SO bad) and here's no decent channels available on it, because they're too damn cheap to pay Dish for them.
Want a snack? No problem!!! A less-than-ounce bag of chips is $1.50, a 12 ounce pop is $1.50, and so is the smallest candy bar made - $1.50!!! No profit there - huh? Only 500% or more!!! C'mon people, just change the name to Motel Sucks and be done with it!!!! I'd sure like to hear what Tom Bodett said if he stayed in this dump, because as far as I'm concerned he can turn the light OUT on THIS rag, because I'm not going back!!
NEWBURY PARK, CALIFORNIA -- Arrived at motel with a secure reservation from Booking.com. The receptionist insisted that I provide ID for both myself and my spouse. When I asked why, the manager insisted that I read a single spaced full page, addressing all of their rules and regulations. When I told them I did not want to stand there and read that before being allowed to check in they told me that I was being rude.
What it really came down to was they were Indian and when they gave an order to a lower inferior person - a woman, I was supposed to jump to it immediately. My husband was standing behind me and heard the entire exchange.
We told them to cancel our weeks stay there and we left to find a more inviting, welcome, place to stay over that Christmas week. It was as if they deliberately provoked a confrontation. No woman here in the USA should be treated like this. We had traveled more than 2500 miles only to have the door slammed in our faces. The parking lot was entirely empty of cars. You have to wonder if they treat all of their arriving guests with such esteemed hospitality.
OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA -- On November 07 my wife and I call the reservation line and requested a room with a queen bed. We were told there was one at the Motel 6 1800 E Reno Oklahoma City. We arrived to find a FULL bed, not a queen. We dealt with this. We decided to check the bed and furniture, a habit we are into now. I attempted to lock our door, only to find the locks would NOT work. Upon more inspection, I found a number of other thing.
A LARGE wet stain on a chair. Dried spit on the carpet. A hole in the wall BY THE SINK, with wiring hanging out. The restroom was so filthy that we had to use our towels to clean it. (they refused to come and clean our room unless we paid EXTRA cleaning charge.) The vent behind the toilet was half hanging off the wall, which fell off later that night striking my wife in the head and leg. In the end, DO NOT GO TO MOTEL 6 ANYWHERE. We WILL be contacting our Attorney over this mess. If you have had similar experiences with this chain email me **. We as consumers should not have to deal with these kind of Companies. Please see the photos.
FT. COLLINS CO., COLORADO -- My room was taken. No fire escape on West end of building. Not enough towels for 2 people. Manager on duty was very rude. Trash in cans. Smelled of smoke. Toilet seat too big for toilet. This hotel was a bad place to stay and I will not stay there ever again.
MODESTO, CALIFORNIA -- My experience at the Motel 6 in Modesto on Orangeburg was great. I was in town visiting family, the staff was very friendly and the upgraded rooms were very nice. Had no issues my whole stay and the price was very reasonable. I will definitely be returning.
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Around midnight after a 3 day stay, Motel 6 had the police come and escort 3 very nice ladies from their room... All 3 were half asleep and close to tears... I heard something about damage to the room... one of the women said it was damaged before they got there. The police was disgusted with Motel 6 actions and let them take their time packing up. We left the next day and will never again use motel six. What a sad way to treat your customers.
DOUGLAS, ARIZONA -- We came in the afternoon about 3 o'clock. I wanted to rent a room and the lady was very nice upfront and she said, "I'm sorry but all we have is an upstairs smoking unit that is nice and clean." My son and I went upstairs the room had a smoke smell, like smoke real bad but it was okay we needed a place to stay. Well we lay down and try to hook up the TV. The TV did not work so we went to Walmart and bought a new plug-in wire for it and the TV still would not work.
We went to the office and they gave us another room, it was a lot cleaner and better carpet but the bedding looked very dirty and worn out. So we took the comforters off. The corners of the sheets were worn out and would not stay on the bed, so I pulled them down. We went to sleep for the night.
We woke up the following morning and the sheets are balled up around my body. It was the grossest thing that I have ever seen in my 58 years of my life. Rollover and got up and looked and there was a giant blood spot 12 to 14 in diameter on the bed that looked like some woman had a problem and left a bloodstain on bed. It was gross, it actually looked like a pregnant woman had sat there and her water broke. I am so sick about it.The money that they gave me back did not satisfy me. I should have somebody from corporate get a hold of me, otherwise I will publicly broadcast on every network and every news place I can ring till someone from corporate contacts me.
I am appalled to let you know that Motel 6 did not take care of their beds. Somebody in this office should do something about it, it is horrible. I hope nobody ever in our life stays at Motel 6 in Douglas Arizona. How would you like to wake up in somebody's nasty blood. I went to the office and they were so embarrassed they did not want us to talk to the manager.
MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA -- I was in Oklahoma on 05/21/2013, and I checked into Motel 6 at 12:30 am on 05/22/2013. I opened my suitcase, put on my pajamas, and left my suitcase open on the bed with me and went to sleep. I woke up feeling awful. I turned the shower on, but it was taking forever for the water to get hot. I turned the bathroom sink on, and it too was taking forever to get hot. I went to my suitcase to get the clothes that I was going to wear that day, as I left the water running in the sink and in the shower. I heard the water splashing on the floor. I went to turn the water off, because there wasn't a pipe under the sink to catch the water. Keep in mind I'm naked.
I grabbed some clothes to put on and went to the office to ask for another room. They did not have one available at the time, and so they asked me to come back. In the meantime, all of my items are in the room. I returned to the motel to get a key to the new room, and asked if they moved my items for me (2 suitcases and a laptop). They said, "No, but here is a new key and you can move it yourself." Somehow, the original room (228) would not accept the key to get in.
It's 5 AM and I am walking back and forth from the motel lobby to this room, each time explaining to the employee, that the key is not working. I advised I had to get my items out asap. I had to be in court with ** at 8:30 AM. They could only say we are sorry, but we cannot get the door open. They gave me a key to a new room (122), and I asked why. If all of my stuff was locked in room 228, what good would it do me to have a key to room 122? They finally opened the door to room 228 at 8:37 AM. Of course this was too late, no shower, no make up. I changed clothes, and went straight to court.
In the meantime, I'm itching like crazy. I assumed it was because I did not take a shower, but the itching was intense, like something was on me. Come to find out, I have numerous bites all over my body. The room was infested with bed bugs. I had to drive back to Nashville, TN with a hair brush scratching the whole way. I ended up going to the hospital to get medication to cure this mess. I ended up staying in the house the whole holiday weekend. I missed out on my holiday pay at my job, and I was supposed to be on a boat a Percy Priest Dam with some friends.
I am still stuck in the house, because the dr. at the hospital could not determine if I only had bed bugs, and not scabies. To end this long dramatic incident. I had to throw away both suit cases, to prevent from bringing these bugs into my home. I want to be compensated for this mess.
