    Dog Tolerant, Not Dog Friendly

    The pros:

    1. Dogs allowed in some rooms

    2. Reasonably priced

    3. Conveniently located

    4. Clean

    The cons:

    1. Rooms have no coffee makers, microwaves, or refrigerators.

    2. I reserved and paid for a queen room, but was given a room with only a full-size bed.

    3. Our room was on the second floor. The stairs are metal grates with spikes on top. I am sure this is to avoid snow and ice buildup in the winter, but the spikes can shred dogs’ paws. I had to carry my dog up and down the stairs multiple times each day.

    4. The Wi-Fi is terrible.

    5. Most of the TV channels do not work.

    6. They are currently having an issue finding good housekeeping help. The boys who were doing the cleaning left bags of laundry all over the motel. They smoked in the hallways, and were seen sleeping by the pool.

    7. Room key cards reset automatically each day instead of when you check out, so we had to get new cards every day in order to get back in our room.

    Good for pets

    The floors are all wood and no carpet so easy cleanup, good walking trial behind hotel. Easy to manage and didn’t hear any other dogs though they were there.

    Great Stay!

    This is a nice Motel 6. We had a great time. Lots of grassy areas for pets to do what they need to and it backs right up to a pedestrian/bike trail. Only issue is the stairs, they are open metal steps that our dog had a hard time with. But she made it, just took her time. Lots of first floor rooms as well. This is one of the bigger motels I’ve seen from this chain. Highly recommend it!

    Check your room first ours was gross.

    This was the dirtiest room I've seen. The floors, light switches and bathroom fan were all disgusting. These are all things very easy to fix but have been ignored for a long time. This was supposed to be a non-smoking room but stunk like cigarettes. I'm tired of the dog rooms being gross. What's dog "friendly" about that? Would give zero bones if I could.
