On a recent motorcycle trip I checked into a Motel6 in Joplin, MO. When I asked if I could park my bike in a dry area because of a coming storm I was told by the manager Carol Ruhl that I should just check out and park at a drive in bank and stay outside with the bike all night! When I checked out to go to a more accomodating motel she refused to refund my $ and called the police when I refused to leave until I got my $. I will NEVER stay at Motel6 again and recommend that no one on a motorcycle should. We are apparently NOT welcome at Motel6. I have found that the folks at Super8 Motels are very accomodating toward motorcyclists and will give a discount for AMA memebers and provide secure, dry parking areas for your bike.
