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.
LIMA, OHIO -- I made the reservation 2 weeks ahead of time. When I arrived. I was told my reservation was only for 1 night. I had a confirmation number for 3 nights, they fixed this. When I ask about the price I was told the room was 79.99 a night. I again referred to my confirmation with the price of 59.99 a night. I was told that it was the 79.99. It was too late to go to another room so we stayed. The 3 days we were there not once did the housekeeper ever come into the room to clean. I had to go to the office twice to get towels, tp and garbage bags. We had to empty our own garbage outside in the bin.
When we checked out the charge on my bill was 80.99 per night. I was suppose to get an AARP discount. I have turned this into my credit card company. My friend also stayed at this place and also was charged a bigger price than she was told when she reserved the room. The place isn't clean and the children of the owner were riding their bikes one with training wheels around the parking lot. You had to be careful you didn't hit them. These are not Americans who own this hotel and I don't think being clean is something they know about as I have noticed this at other hotels owned by these people.
MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA -- Well, maybe that wouldn't be everyone's 'cup of tea'. You just need to go downtown to Monterey in truth for the same experience. Certainly we dog owners often have few choices beyond Motel 6. The owner of this establishment is so blatantly hostile she employs a friendly man to apologize for her. There is no place to walk a dog. I told her my dog was 14 years old and could hardly stand up which is why she had no leash and the 'vamp' immediately went for her cell phone to call the police. I was happy to go elsewhere.
All dogs are 'stored' with owners in front row where 'she' can keep an eye on YOU. Not pleasant at all and not at all what Motel 6 is about. Marina is a lot more reasonable. Not my intention to be racist [for sure], but Motel 6 does everyone a disservice by offering franchises to individuals who clearly hate dogs. We owners have no other choice and we have come to rely upon this chain as a bastion of freedom of movement. Filthy floors, too, covered in a 1/3 inch of ammonia slime at 5 pm check in! Peace to everyone everywhere!
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.
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.
MATTOON, ILLINOIS -- Arrived shortly after 8 pm. My wife and I checked in without a reservation. The manager was courteous and efficient. The room and bathroom were clean as were the linens and towels. We enjoyed our stay. The following morning we noticed the grounds were clean and well maintained as was the motel office and we enjoyed fresh courtesy coffee before departing. I would stay there again without hesitation and would recommend this establishment to others. The motel is #4950 in the Motel 6 chain.
SYLMAR, CA -- I wish to comment on the great service I received. My first day was a negative one but, the turnaround with these special ladies Andrea and Maria ** both help make a negative to a pleasure with my stayforme, my family and two dogs. My stay has been a long one having to wait for house to be ready to move in. I had chance to change hotel, but NO I am comfortable where I am. Kudos to Motel 6. I highly recommend to those who are in need of a hotel near freeway 5 & 405...
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.
