I booked a different to stay during the 2014 Newport Folk Festival, and when a cheaper room became available online at the Motel 6, I grabbed it and paid with a credit card. I called the hotel to be sure that everything was squared away and they confirmed that a room was in my name and it was booked for... More

I spent 2 days here last year and didn't think it was bad for the price. I booked here again for a week. This visit was better than the first. Upon arrival the gentleman was very pleasant. He even adjusted the price that the booking.com had quoted. 100.00 cheaper than the reservation stated. The motel did drastic changes to the... More

In a town where my meal was $100 it was nice to stay in a room for only $75. Of course I dreamed if staying on the waterfront but reality kicked in. The Motel 6 is still in Newport near the Middletown line but close enough to get back quickly. It probably takes less time than going to Castle Hill.... More

No swimming pool, parking lot was small, no closet, or table, or book of local information,1 lamp illuminating the entire room, the towels where wimpy and scratchy, could not... More

The hotel was convenient to the Marina where we needed to be and served our purpose. The rooms are spacious, clean, and updated. Although the front desk agent alerted us to call far in advance for a cab on a busy summer weekend, we did find it difficult to get a hold of the four options she provided to us... More

I have stayed here on 3 separate weekend getaways in July 2012, April 2013 and March 2014. I thought this motel was an especially great deal in the summer, as Newport is quite pricey. I stayed on the first floor the first two trips and on the third trip I stayed on the second floor, I found that the room... More

Great price for a Saturday night during a holiday weekend, about a third of the price of any other Newport Hotel. Was pleasantly surprised, Staff was great at both check in and check out. Room was newly renovated and very clean. Only complaint is that cleaning carts were left in the hallways at 11pm.

We spent two nights Easter weekend. The place is newly renovated. The walls freshly painted, the TV new and the bathroom new. I really like the wood floor as opposed to carpet. The bed was nice and comfortable and the pillows nice and cushy. It's pet friendly and there is a Walmart and Super Stop & Shop right next door.... More

Not the greatest hotel in which I have every stayed, but of course it is budget. The room was clean. The TV and a light did not work, but to be fair the manager got the TV working, which was nice. A bit of attention to the garden out the front would not be that hard, I think, and may... More

My wife and I had a 6 week vacation driving through 12 US states in Oct and Nov this year. Our road-trip kicked off in Boston and Newport, RI was our first destination. We checked into the Motel 6 at Newport and it was our very first experience of an establishment in the said motel chain. Being a Motel 6,... More
