Motel 6 - A Horrid Story!

Guest post by Kevin Stone about a horrible stay at a Motel 6 and their response follows. You can link to Kevin's blog ( below or in my sidebar. Thanks Kevin!

JULY 6, 2012

Motel 6 Clute, Texas

     As most of our readers know we have been involved medical emergency and since I live far away from where our family member is located I purchased a motel room so that I could be near the night before surgery. Well, I stayed at the Motel 6 in Clute, Texas and what I saw was just disgusting by any means.
     I snapped a few pictures so that I could show you what I am talking about. I am also sending a message to Motel 6 via their web site. I am posting this on my blog because I am sure that I am not going to get any kind of response out of Motel 6. It is for that very reason that I am never going to use the services of Motel 6 again. If by chance I do receive a response from Motel 6 I will share it here with you in the future. For now however, check out these pictures and make your own judgment.

     Yes, you guessed it this is a roach. I am not talking about a little roach either this is a full grown roach that has been around the block a few times. This was not the only one seen in this room either. Several were seen on and around the refrigerator and microwave area as well.

These picture were taken of in the shower. Yes, this is very disgusting! I am sure that there are some mold issues here.

     Last but not least, these are some kind of bug crawling along the ceiling of the room. I am not sure what it is but there were seven counted on the ceiling at one time.
     Because of financial issues I had no choice but to stay in this motel room. However, I will never stay in a Motel 6 again as long as I live. If I ever have to stay in a motel again, which I am sure that the time will come, I will make arrangements to stay somewhere else. You can make your own decision as to where you will stay. I can not force anyone to boycott anything, all I can do is share my experience with you in hopes of stopping anyone else from going through what I have gone through.
     This was from room number 217 at the Motel 6 in Clute, Texas on July 3rd 2012.

Do you have a horror story from a Hotel or Motel? Please share them with us.


  1. Hey Dan, thanks for posting this. It was an awful stay and the response was not very comforting either.

  2. Now that was enough to make you want to throw-up. I don't think the response from Motel 6 was very serious either. Yuck! Yuck! Gross!!!!

  3. been driving 30 plus myself, and understanding Kevin's need to save money, the one thing i have learned if i'm staying in a hotel i try to get into a Holiday Inn or a Marriott chain Wingate something like that i no the are more expensive but they seem to be more responsive if there is a problem, and the services are much better But thanks Kevin for the warning about Clute motel 6
