I didn't actually stay here. I did reserve a room. I spent 5 minutes talking to my husband about how we get out of this place. Fortunately, they refunded our money and we went to another hotel. You do get what you pay for and this hotel was about $70 per night. No shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, closet...much of what I... More

There was a dog barking loud in a room next to ours. Someone left the dog in the room and spent the night out, crazy. Very noisy motel. I was able to hear all the guests coming in at all different time of the night. I do not recommend! Please avoid this motel.

I have one word to describe this motel: Yuck! The motel reeks of cigarette smoke and does not offer basic amenities in the room like a hair dryer or shampoo and conditioner. You have to buy the shampoo and conditioner in a vending machine. We booked a non-smoking room and were told upon check-in that the motel only had a... More

My daughter and her husband had reservations at this hotel for her sisters wedding. 2nd floor was filthy at 4:24PM with laundry carts all down the hall and bags off trash from rooms everywhere. Laundry room door was open and totally filthy. We proceeded to room and even after a guarentee 3pm check in the room had not been touched.... More

I arrived and was charged nearly $60 more than I was quoted on the phone. Yes, I had changed my reservation prior from 4 nights to 2(glad I did) and was told at checkin that the systems known delay in updating changed rates/corresponding reservations was to blame. While this may be true, representatives should say they are unable to give... More

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 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

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
