My wife and I booked a room at the Motel 6 location in Newport, RI for one night, Saturday Nov. 7 to Nov. 8. When we arrived at 4pm, the desk clerk was visibly intoxicated and the lobby smelled of marijuana. Also in the lobby with the clerk was a man who could barely stand who didn't appear to be... More

My stay at the Newport, RI Motel 6 was so miserable that I checked out of the motel room two hours after I checked in. Unfortunately I did not get my money back and I ended up checking into another hotel in the area just to have my peace of mind. I could not fathom staying in my Motel 6... More

To be honest it's a Motel 6 so if you're expecting the full on luxury of a Westin or Hilton, you'd better keep looking. But, if you're looking for a comfortable budget bed in a town which is quite pricey then this is a great option. Just off of the toll bridge and less than a 5 minute drive from... More

we were in town for a wedding so had to stay one night. This is a very expensive town to visit and since a holiday weekend some places required two nights. I didn't expect much, as long as its clean, a place to crash. We had a very nice updated king room, bed was very comfortable, everything was clean. Low... More

I stayed for a couple of nights this summer at this motel. This Motel 6 was disappointing. The back parking lot was covered with garbage. I told the front desk about it, but no one took care of it. I also saw a man sleeping on the ground next to the dumpster in the back. It was shock to see... More

Desk clerk very friendly. Asked if we had AARP this saved us a few bucks on the room, free wifi and late checkout. Later he helped us hook up to wifi. This gentleman is what every bussiness needs. The room was clean and the beds quite comfortable

Motel very close to a few restaurants, a Walmart and some other stores. Nice building, reasonable rooms and good prices considering that it's near Newport, with it's scenic coastline, harbour and many big mansions with well cared gardens.

The hotel is quite new or was recently renovated, so everything was very clean. It's much cheaper than staying in the city, but you won't get a lot for that money compared to other Motels we had. No breakfast, no hairdryer etc. It's not centrally located, so you need a car to get to pretty much anywhere.
