Motel 6 / deplorable motel
We can NOT understand how it is that Motel 6 is still in business. We booked a 3 night stay at Motel 6, from Expedia, for Motel 6, 258 Harry Ln Blvd, Knoxville, TN 37923 to stay at while on a trip to Smokey Mountains and it was full of transient looking people that lived in the rooms. These same people would go into the pool with their street clothes on. They were allowed to stay in the pool until midnight. There was a transient sitting 3 foot from our filthy room door with his guitar, the kind of person you would see on a street corner begging. The tub was moldy, the walls had what looked exactly like some sort of human fluids or animal fluids on them. Made us want to puke. The air conditioner was going on and off all night, we had to keep waking up to fix it so it would turn back on being that it is July and very hot and humid in Knoxville at this time of year. The next day the toilet ran over and would not go down and we called the man at the front desk, Michael, who should NOT be interacting with customers due to how he looks as if he has a disease because his finger was cut off and his bones were sticking out of his finger, it was horrifying. His elbow has a raw bone sticking out of it also. He looked as if he was ready to be cremated. We told him the toilet would not go down due to being clogged or something and he told us he didn't have a maintenance man so I asked for a plunger and he said he had none. we went to ask for a refund because we can NOT stay in a motel that was this deplorable and he said for us to just turn around and leave. So we turned around and went to the nasty room and we got our things and we left. We were very distraught that we were treated in a bad way. We paid for 3 nights, stayed 1 night and only got 1 night refunded. I am grateful we at least got 1 night refunded, but that was after our friend, who is from Knoxville went in and asked him for a refund. She talked like a person from Knoxville and she said it was her Southern charm that convinced him to refund us the 1 night. It seems the people around Knoxville don't want visitors in or around their city. I will keep my money away from there and NEVER again go to any Motel 6 for the rest of life no matter where they are located they all seem to have the same reputation. Motel 6 is NOT for the normal vacationer or traveler. And do NOT believe what you see in the photos they post for their motel and rooms. These are very DECEIVING!
These motels should be for transients only.
