Is this ok? "Restrooms are on each floor except the 3rd floor; note that the 7th floor has only men's room, the 6th floor has only lady's room." I'm especially not sure of the use of ";" and "note that" and "has."

There are restrooms on each floor, except on the third floor. At the 7th floor there's only men's room and at the 6th floor there's only lady's room.

"There are/there is" are better choices for this sentence, since it's an impersonal sign. I don' think you need "note that". It’s better to make it as straightforward as it can be.

If you'd like more help, I'd be happy to assist you. Feel free to look at my teaching profile and class offerings and send me a message if you think I can help you.

"Restrooms are on each floor except the 3rd floor; note that the 7th floor has only a men's room, and [that] the 6th floor has only a lady's ladies' room."

It was mostly fine. It really only needed some minor corrections to sound more natural. Your use of "note that" and "[the] floor has" sounds perfectly fine as well in English. You might want to put a comma in front of "except", but it doesn't make any difference to the meaning.

The semicolon is valid as well. But you don't really see it used that often. It's often better to just start a new sentence instead.

"There are restrooms on every floor except 3. Please note that the 7th floor has only has a men's room, and the 6th floor only has only a ladies' room."

I'm especially not sure of the use of ";" and "note that" and "has."

"Restrooms are on each floor except the 3rd floor; note that the 7th floor has only men's room, the 6th floor has only lady's room."--Orignal

Except for the 3rd floor, restrooms exist on each floor; however, note that the 6th floor only has a women's restroom, and the 7th floor only has a men's restroom.--Using a conjunctive adverb

Except for the 3rd floor, restrooms exist on each floor, but note that the 6th floor only has a women's restroom, and the 7th floor only has a men's restroom.--Using one of the FANBOYS

As originally written, your post is proper grammatically. To my ears though, I feel that it would be better to rearrange the word order, as well as to have an article (“a” or “the”) before “women’s/men’s restroom.”

We use a semicolon [;] to link two independent clauses, especially when the second one explains or adds information to the other. We can also link them together, as I have done, using a conjunctive adverb (moreover, nevertheless, otherwise, however, etc.) Finally, this sentence could just as easily have been written, again, as I have done, using “but,” or another of the FANBOYS after a comma [,].  

The words, “note that” are emphasizing that the following information is different from, or modifies the information given in the earlier clause.
 
The word, “has” is just showing possession, as each floor has its own restroom. For example, “He has no money for lunch. She has no time to study. The car has no gas in it.”
 
My sincerest apologies if I have misunderstood. I hope that this helps you, Jonathan.
