SALINA, KS – The prepared traveler is the smart traveler, and sometimes travel throws a curveball or two at you. Here are 5 practical tips for enjoying your stay at a Motel 6.
Travel can be fun. Thrilling even. The excitement of what’s around the bend. The thrill of the unknown. Seeing something you’ve never seen before. Jumping on the hotel bed. Yup, travel is the best.
But sometimes travel can throw a curveball or two at you. Sometimes you have to stay in a Red Roof Inn. Or a Motel 6. But, the prepared traveler is the smart traveler. Here are 5 practical tips for enjoying your stay at a Motel 6.
Step one is simple. Don’t stay at a Motel 6. That’s it. That’s the tip.
If you simply must stay at one, here are a few more tips to help you maximize your enjoyment.
Book 3 rooms side by side – so you can get some sleep
With 3 rooms side by side, you might actually get some sleep because you won’t have to listen to doors slamming every 30 minutes as johns come in and out of the adjacent rooms.
And we don’t mean beer. Nope, bring your own bedding. The sketch factor on some of these beds is set to maximum. Sleep at your own risk.
Leave the lights on
As the old commercial once said, “We’ll leave the light on for you.” As folksy as the iconic marketing slogan is, there’s a hidden meaning in its simplicity.
“Please leave the lights on,” said an older fella once to me about Motel 6 and he was right. You just never know what’s chittering around when the lights go out.
Wear a body condom
Ideally, you don’t want any part of your body to make contact with the hotel room. The full-body condom maybe your best option.
