a grossly overpriced dump

insufficient towels, no tissue paper or any of the little bottles of shampoo or other necessities. at 1/3 the rate this place might have been reasonable, but for what we paid it was a real ripoff. we'll stay away from motel 6 in the future. i was going to omit the review of hotel staff because our interaction with them was minimal but it required me to fill in an answer.

Bare bones for 300 dollars

Pros: The front desk lady was gracious enough to be embarrassed.
Cons: Everything!!! If Motel 6 wants to remain bare bone,s then charge 60 dollars per night, not 300 dollars.
Location: I bought coffee from the Starbucks and water from CVS.
We understand it is the graduation weekend and we understand that motel 6 is supposed to be bare bones, but not when you pay 310.00 for one night. The floor was dirty, stained ( like there was a spill and it did not get cleaned properly), bed cover was stained, towels were threadbare, and not full bath size, hallways were pretty dirty, coffee was awful (the only add on, and who still uses Styrofoam cups?), there was not even a box of Kleenex in the room ( a standard in every motel and hotel). And after charging for a room for 310.00 they said there was a five dollar charge for internet (only for one device, so I can use it for the phone but for the laptop, I have to pay another 5 dollars). This is called gouging.
