Needed a room for just 1 night while attending a wedding in newport. All the other area hotels/motels require 2 nite min this time of year, we could not do that. This was fine. The room was clean, basic, bed was comfortable and ac worked! Front desk was pleasant. it is in a great location only 10 min or so... More

Room service is basically just changing your towels. First night we stayed a serious fight broke out in the next room! Safety concerns should not be included in a stay at any motel. You get what you pay for! Spend the money and stay elsewhere for a piece of mind!!

I came here apprehensive about the conditions but figured it could be no worse than the Pineapple motel up the road I stayed at two years ago. My room was very clean, the accommodations very basic. But for two nights it worked fairly well. The halls are dated and look run down but the room had hardwood flooring which appeared... More

We booked three nights the night before check-in. We couldn't afford an expensive hotel so we figured just under $70/night was pretty good for Newport and the photos made it look clean and updated. We arrived and the front desk staff seemed pre-occupied. We were asked if we wanted a fridge and microwave and we said yes but when we... More

We stayed on the 2nd floor which has been updated with new paint in hallway..Room updated with flat screen TV and laminate floors instead of carpet which is a plus..For the price it is ok if you just plan on using the room to shower an sleep while visiting newport,downtown only 2 miles from hotel..If you are a light sleeper...

We had a hard time finding this Motel 6, because the highway has some odd loops in it, and trees blocked the sign the first time we drove by it. But once we were there, the room was clean, quiet, the typical Motel 6 set up. My wife thought the floor was kind of dirty, as she was wearing ankle... More

I felt that I was in a time warp back to the 70's. Room very basic. Small TV, no shampoo or lotions, towels a little thin. Room clean w/o carpet. It was close to Newport (5 minute drive). Morning staff at front desk wasn't very attentive. Located near a Wal-Mart and a DD. If you're going to just use it... More

We stayed for one night at the Motel 6 in Newport. It's located a little bit outside but we were looking for something affordable and the Motel 6 met our expectations. Free parking is available and a Uber to the center was 6 dollars. It's a typical motel, the room was big and very clean and there was a hardwood... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for one night over the weekend. The rooms were fairly clean and seemed to be more updated than other like chain hotels. When we asked the front desk for some shampoo, they said they didn't have any which is something we have never heard of at any hotel/motel. This hotel is in a... More
