Motel 6 North Platte
Travel Blogs from North Platte
Today we drove 381 miles, 2/3 of them since 7:30 p.m, from awesome Hot Sulphur Springs, CO, to terrible North Platte, NE. Weather was partly cloudy with a high of 72 in the afternoon.

... Of course being committed we had no choice but to go forward. So after finishing our repeating lunch we headed out. I'd say we had gone about 10min when we hit a wall of water/rain as hard as I've ever driven in. There's was no visibility, I was guessing where the road was and we were going over a bridge. Luckily it only lasted a few minutes and the sky cleared. We're thinking we dodged a bullet. We drove for about an hour until ...
How has this motel rated in the past?
Got a smoking room, but it was my fault. As clean as any other Motel 6. Beds were present and roof was not leaking so I was happy.
