The young man that checked us in at 5pm was nice. We had issues in our room and he was able to fix one of them. The grumpy old guy that was at the desk when we checked out was the opposite. It seemed like he was bothered by my being there and asking for change.

Highly Recommend, Accommodations Great & Staff++++

Pros: The staff and the cleanliness.
Cons: The water pressure in the shower.
Location: We were there during an ice storm so we didn't venture too far. Luckily this is quite close to a Cracker Barrel only a block away.
Phone staff was great about helping me get a change to the reservation. The woman who checked us in was nice enough. She knew her job and it was a smooth process. We did lose an item while we were in town. We called hours after check-in to see if it had been turned in. Brittany handled my call. She not only went to check with housekeeping, she personally checked the room and called me back to let me know they couldn't find it. To top it off, she did all that within 15 minutes. I consider this going above and beyond, and I was definitely impressed. Our room was extremely clean and had a cool mid-20th-century vibe to it. It was a big perk to have a microwave and a refrigerator. Our one and only issue was the water pressure in the shower. It would be nice to have it a lot stronger.

US Marshals

Pros: rooms were nice
Cons: inform guests prior to being law enforcement holding a raid nearby
I booked this room for my boss while she was in town. I came down to check her in from my office and drove back to the office all with in 2 miles. By the time I got back and called her to see how the room was (15 minutes) there were US Marshals outside her door banging across the hall for a guy wanted for attempted murder! As I'm speaking to her she is told to get into the bathtub because they have no idea what kind of fire power the guy has on him. So while still on the phone with me she goes and hides in the bathroom of the room. They get the guy to open up and there are 2 men inside. At this point she is supposed to be back at the office to teach a workshop for my people but can not leave her room. .. After the men are taken into custody she is allowed to leave. The next morning there is no in room coffee although the listing said there was and the continental breakfast is donuts in a vending machine. Needless to say we met for breakfast. At no point did the staff offer any compensation and the only thing they did do was call after the fact law enforcement was banging across the hall. Embarrassing and severely disappointing

Bad stay

The hotel showed online that it had a pool...no pool! Heater/air was broken, so the first night was unbearable, no shampoo or hygiene products. Broken floor tiles, remote didn't work properly.....just a bad stay!!

Four days in Lincoln

Pros: I liked the cleanliness and the plastic wood floors.
Cons: Shampoo in the rooms and maybe slightly better towels.
Location: We were there for the SOLO Nationals at the airport.
Stayed in Lincoln for four days and the Motel 6 was fine. Its a Motel 6 so small towels, no shampoo, no breakfast etc but the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The floors are plastic wood which is much better than the dirt trap carpets you usually get in Motels. The staff was fine along with everything else so I would have no hesitation staying there again.

Waste of money

Wi-Fi only free with AARP and only up to two devices. Not aware of not able to use AARP because of booking through third party. Extremely overpriced with no amenities. Not even a box of Kleenex. A/C unit too noisy. Had to shut it off. Would rather pay a little more somewhere else with amenities, including free Wi-Fi.

Clean, but minimalist

The room upon arrival was clean and had what we needed for a one night stay, but the beds were a bit hard and the room was minimally furnished and felt very bare. There was no closet to hang coats or any other items.

I love Motel 6's no-frills concept

Pros: Location, and the property was in good condition.
Cons: Laminate floors were sticky and dirty. Had to wipe my feet clean after taking a shower before I put my socks on. Mop more often with less detergent.
Location: Good central location in Lincoln. Close to I-80 and 27th street.
Motel 6 provides a very good value for the money. I wish there were more motel's out there like this. I don't want a lot of the extras that cost money at other places; I only want a clean, quiet room and a comfortable bed. I chose this motel because it had good reviews for the price range. I agree with the previous reviews, but the laminate floors were very sticky and dirty. After I took a shower and walked around the room barefoot, I had to take a wet towel and wipe my feet off before I put my socks on. The white towel I used looked as dirty as if I had just walked around outside in the parking lot. It was obvious that the cleaning staff only swept and didn't run a mop over the floors before I checked in. And whatever they used the last time they did mop the floors didn't have enough water in it because the floors were very sticky too.

Expecting a decent hotel for an overnight stop.

Late arrival with marginal customer service at check in. Went to room the bed wasn't made and towels on bathroom floor, obvious the room hadn't been cleaned. Went to front desk to request another room got a half hearted sorry and another room given. At check out the next morning I voiced disappointment and staff was disinterested. For the price I would have expected continental breakfast. I don't think we will stay at another Motel 6.
