The pool wasn’t open. Website said indoor/outdoor pool. Wrong, it’s 100% outdoor and we were not happy. Only reason we booked this place was for a swimming pool

Non Smoking?

We were placed in a room with a connecting door. The room next to us was occupied and not only were they smoking cigarettes but marijuana as well. Hotel is clearly listed as a non smoking facility. I guess that doesn’t matter when you are a drug dealer.

You get what you pay for.

The Motel 6 OSU was reasonably priced and clean. My room was quiet. Furnishings were cheap and workmanship quality lacking as would be expected in this price range. What was not expected was the cold shower in the morning and the lack of shampoo in the room. Overall 3/5.
