Hotel had a 3 pm check in time. I arrived at 4 and the room was not available. At this point, I had a car full of wet ice hockey gear and a swety player. I didn’t have the option to wait an hour. We had team functions to attend immediately. My option was, get back and stay up late for an early AM game Fine. I aked for a delayed check out time so I could at least take my time in the morning. Also could have had my kid clean up. Shot down. So, I packed in at 9 PM and wike at 5:30 am to pack out. Not acceptable. Never again.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room on the other hand could use some help... Room was labeled non smoking but reeked of smoke. Hotel worker came in to spray with deodorizer but that only gave temporary relief. The attendant offered to bring in a machine to help with the smell but we declined since we were only there to sleep. The stench was so bad that everything we brought home still smelled of cigarette smoke. We literally left our bags in the room for less than 24 hours. The floors are hardwood which is nice but they looked like they hadn’t been swept in a week. The tv in the room was broken. Someone left dirty toilet paper jammed in the peep hole which the maid also didn’t clean up. The bed was the most uncomfortable I’ve ever slept on. Overall just felt dirty after staying in this room. When our family goes out of town we usually don’t mind staying at Motel 6 but this was just a very disappointing experience.

Reservation scare!

They weren't going to honor our reservation because they were overbooked. Luckily we arrived early and got the last room. That was scary!
