Didn’t think I was going to survive on this. Well, maybe I’m being a little dramatic right now. However, the story I’m about to tell you will make you feel uncomfortable with this motel brand.
We were going to Richmond, Virginia for a business event. All the nearby hotels were full. The only choice was Motel 6. I have used them in the past when I went on a road trip across the USA. However, nothing could prepare me for what was in store.
When I got to my room, noticed I was not alone. Two cockroaches made thier presences known when I moved my pillow. I was not bothered by it too much; however, it was a clear sign this isn’t a well kept motel.
A few hours pasted by, heard people screaming in the other room. Unfortunately, I was hearing stds being exchanged.
Eventually, I heard a fight broke out next door. From what I overheard, the prostitute’s client got into a fight with her pimp. I felt so unsafe and uncomfortable. The police came with what looked like guns. Apparently, it was much more than just prostitution. It seems like drugs were involved. While all this was happening next door, I was trying to fall asleep with my two new cockroach friends.
After some time, arrests were made. Didn’t think it was going to ever end. I was annoyed that I paid the motel for this experience. Had to call the corporate number to get a refund. Never again will I stay at a Motel 6.
Thank you for reading! Stay safe and much love!

Oh my lawd! What a nightmare, I sure hope you were able to get you money back because this is unacceptable! Geez, thanks for the warning and the post! lol
Lol anytime. Yeah stay away from motel 6 chain, if possible. I had to send multiple emails and call several times to get my refund back.
Well at least you got a good story out of it 😬
Lmao yes…kind of wish i was exaggerating though :/ all this happended
Wow, sounds awful!
Yes it wasnt the most fun experience
Yikes. Bad experience. I stayed at a Quality Inn once, but it seems that only the bedbugs had the quality. I was badly bitten up. I think Motel 6 and Super 8 franchises can be good, but if they are a cheap rate motel, they will also attract a certain type of clientele. Stay safe. Allan
😫😫😫 i know that feeling of bring unwanted gifts back home from a bad motel. I had to throw away all my furniture. Yeah not all motel 8s are bad. I actually never had issues with super 8. Yeah main reason why i do mainly airbnb
Wow! Sometimes cheap isn’t cheap.
What a horrible experience. It’s put me off Motel 6 forever!!
I dont blame you. Most arent like this of course. However, cheap motels usually bring the worst clients
What a nightmare!!
I know…ughh still gives me chills. I cant never downgrade. That’s why i choose airbnb nowadays
NEVER stay at a motel 6!! This is awful!
I would recommend to stay away from cheap motels in general. You are usually get what you pay for. I had gotten bed bugs once from staying at a cheap hotel
Exactly! Had to throw away almost all my furniture
Yepp lol never thought i would pay to be in something like that
It’s very scary to even think about it!
I know i was truly lucky that night to had nothing happened to me. Choose Airbnb if you are on a budget
I like AirBnb
What an experienced!
Yes it lol like others said at least i got a good story out of it. Btw what a part of south east are you from? Currently in thailand
I am originally from the Philippines in Metro-Manila. But I am now living in NZ for 16yrs.
BTW… if you want infos about PH pls check my older post as I always go back every year.
I have my own Motel 6 in Virginia, in Emporia near the state line with NC. I was traveling south and turned off the road (the dark dark unlit road) and they only thing visible was the Motel 6 sign. It had the looks of a hooker hotel, including the wary staff, but it seemd to be the only place around. The building backed up into a wooded area. The best word for the room is “damp.” It all seemed dirty and spooky, if not exactly threatening of doom. In the morning, I noticed that there were many signs of life off of the northbound exit. Now I know a drive around in the pitch black after midnight can be worth the effort.
That was very well written. I was probably alittle strong on the brand instead of the individual owner of the motel 6.
I agree that some franchise owners are more earnest than others. I love Virginia and I really want to get back and hike there. Happy New Year!
Yikes! What a situation. Glad you were able to get a refund.
Thank you! Me too!
Sounds horrible!! My biggest nightmare was to find a few cockroaches – but my biggest nightmare is like a little detail in yours.
Lol. It was definitely an interesting experience. At least i can say it gave me an interesting story
Smiles, horror story, indeed. If I ever went to a hotel or motel and I saw a roach in the room, I’d be like, “I want my money back, completely” ,and I’d head out to sleep in my car. Horrible and the rest of the horror story was just as bad. Good you are sharing the information with those that might want to stay at a motel . Personally, I like camping out in nature better than staying at a motel. Merry Christmas peace
Yeah i love camping plus it’s free! No problem! Will be sharing more information about it! 🙂
Hey! We just had that similar experience at Motel 6 Daytona Speedway. Good to know they are a consistent shit hole! 😂
The roaches would have run me off well before I had a chance to know about the guns and prostitutes. Life is too short to save a few bucks at cheap motels!!!! Good reporting and sorry you had this experience.
What a horrible experience. Thankfully, you got out of it safely and good to know that you got the refund.
You can’t make this stuff up! At least the good experiences balance out the bad.
Unfortunately i’m familiar with the subject:
yes, I see that you are lol
Oh wow, that is an experience! I hope you’ve had better! This makes me want to be a lot more careful about where I’m staying!
OMG! The way you tell this is so funny, but I’m sure you weren’t laughing. I likely would have left right then and there and slept in my car!
Lol i always try bring humour in bad situations. I probably should had slept in the car to be honest. At least i got a good story from it
It’s a hell of a story lol

Man this is right up my alley, I’ve had some bizarre Motel 6 experiences, from blood or make up stained towels to guests going and cleaning the rooms because the employees were nowhere to be found. It’s best to avoid these motels at all costs!
Sounds like a terrible experience, but at least you got an interesting story out of it!
haha yeah, i did! also i got a crazy story out of it as well!
Cockroaches made this situation comfortable.
Lol i know right
Thankfully I steer clear from Motel 6’s. God that sounds like a freakin nightmare. 😖
yeah stay far away when you can! uggh never expected to pay to sleep with cockroaches
I would’ve had a heart attack omg no. I HATE roaches. 💀
Lol yeah… I don’t blame you. Roaches are something else
That was a real nightmare! 😨
lol i know right haha i survived something scary
omg that sounds so scary ! I had a friend who stayed at a motel 6 once; he said he ran some water through the coffee maker they provide in the room to clean it out before making coffee…he said as the water went into the mug, there were a few cockroaches that fell out :/
Sorry to hear this 😬crikey, that’s pretty grim – well done for soldiering through it!!
haha yeah it was crazy! thank you for reading!
Hi, I hope you’ve had better! This makes me want to be a lot more careful about where I’m staying!
Such a lovely place to visit!. I was there a few years ago and I would recommend the Conbo Tour: Alcatraz Island and City Tour. Also, if you like wines… visit Napa Valley and check out the different vineyards.
Very interesting! I had always thought of that incident as something ethereal/supernatural, but not necessarily indicative of anything relating to time-travel.Pegasus uçak bileti
