Bare bones, strong chemical smell, beds comfortable

Review of Motel 6 Bozeman
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Aug 2021
We often stay in budget hotels/motels and are usually pleasantly surprised. This Motel 6 was very disappointing, especially considering the "high season" rate that we paid. The first thing I noticed was a strong smell throughout the building, some kind if industrial cleaning solution odor. Very strong and unpleasant. The room was tiny, bare bones. Super thin towels, no "extras" you might expect like a note pad or pen or a shower cap. The room seemed clean enough except for other peoples' hair on the bedspread! The beds were actually comfortable and shower head was nice, which were the only redeeming qualities. No breakfast, and don't expect much from the free coffee. It's only available in the morning and very low quality - only powdered creamer, etc.

Not memorable in a good way or a bad way. A bed, a bathroom, a TV, parking, clean enough for a night or two while passing through town. Location is off the highway near many other motels with similar rates.

Room was clean , bed were good for our backpacking group, and breakfast with Nina was great. She was very friendly and the front desk was very accommodative to allow us to store our items while we went in town after checkout! Great job would highly recommend !

First things first, we were grateful that Motel 6 welcomed us and our 4 dogs (all between 5 and 14lbs), and there was no charge for the dogs! Our room was not carpeted and was the biggest one we stayed in all week. There was even a couch in the room. The bathroom (only shower) was a bit small and probably needs an upgrade but it was perfect for us. We had to walk our dogs down one floor to get outside but our dogs were fine with that.

Great room, one of the best we stayed in during this road trip! And the front desk was really friendly during check in.

The first room I was checked into was on the first floor and had an overwhelming septic smell. I notified the manager who begrudgingly switched my room and admitted that sometimes this happened and there was nothing they could do about it. If they really wanted to fix this problem they certainly could, I suspect that they don't care enough about it to correct it.

I was switched to another room on the same floor but further down the hall. The new room stank of cigarettes, desperate for a rest after a long travel day I just dealt with it. Later that evening and into the next day I would get occasional whiffs of that septic smell again. It was absolutely disgusting. When I used the tap, the water coming out had an unusual smell. I can't describe it, but it wasn't indicative of clean water, it wasn't something you'd want to bathe or brush your teeth with.

When I turned on the AC unit a strong odor of cigarettes came out. I checked the filter and it appeared that it hadn't been changed in years (see photos). I've stayed at numerous Motel 6 locations and never had any issues like this.

The location was convenient, right off I-90, but the clientele were seedy. The motel appeared to be more like a boarding house for vagrants. People were literally camped outside the rear entrance. I also observed both guests and employees frequently smoking at the front entrance. Although the room appeared clean, the strong smell of sewage and cigarettes didn't make it smell very clean.

I highly recommend that any visitors to Bozeman who are on a budget either find a campground or spend the extra money for a nicer motel, because this one was absolutely disgusting and should probably be shut down by the health department on account of the water and sewage problems.

My stay has been wonderful! The room is very clean and very quiet. Staff has been helpful and the motel is one of the better motel 6s that I have stayed. Motel is well taken care of and feels fresh. Windows open nicely to allow fresh mountain air in. I have a dog and there are many places to walk her nearby. Still here and might even extend my stay for a few more days.
