Motel 6 Newport Beach
Ranked #14 of 23 Hotels in Costa Mesa
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed here one night and left labor Day. No amenities - shampoo, coffemaker, dresser?. Wife felt she was in a prison cell. I though it was ok, bed was comfortable, flat screen tv. Would rather spend $20.00 more and get a dresser, coffee maker, and maybe a small breakfast.

Room Tip: Stay away from front rooms near main street.

I chose this hotel because it was close to the O.C. Fair. Newly remolded and very nice. Some issues though for the handicapped room. The shower is nice, has a seat and easy to use but the way the have the curtain it does not keep the water in the shower so you have the issue of possibly slipping and falling. Plus the water pressure is not that great. Had to sit there for 10 minutes to get conditioner out of my hair. Second issue was pricing. I booked the hotel a few months back and I had a coupon for a free night stay. The front desk person took out my reservation and re did it so the first night was free but charged me higher prices for the next two nights. I said something to the night person but nothing was done. Be careful if they claim they have to change your reservation. Make sure they give you the price you booked.
Other than that it was a great stay.

This is way nicer than any Motel6 I've stayed at. Pool and jacuzzi, laundry, my room was in a quiet hallway (hint: ask for a room in the back), an has been recently tastefully redecorated. Just the Internet is a little slow.

This was a good place to stay for the price, very clean and looks newly renovated. For a Motel 6 I was very surprised. It also has easy acess to Newport and Huntington Beach. I woud've rate it higher but the customer service was bad. Had some issues regarding the room and couldn't get anyone on the phone and when I did was blown off by the by front desk staff. The WYFY was terrible too. Couldn't get online at all.

surprisingly clean and modern for a motel, did have a odd smell in room wasn't sure if it was cleaning spray or mould if you do not have a car and want to travel to the beach and LA area i wouldn't suggest staying here as we discovered that LA was a 4 hour bus trip or a $110 shuttle ride! But otherwise its probably one of the nicest motels you could ever come across!

Wonderful stay, all staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Really good value compared to local hotels, and good location, only 10 mins from all local beaches and shops. Rooms were modern and clean with good facilities, microwave and fridge, air conditioning and free wifi, which has been invaluable.

My husband and I were looking for a dog friendly hotel in Orange County that was close to the beaches and dog friendly. Motel 6 has the lowest pet fee we could find... it's free!

From the outside the hotel looks a little rundown and outdated. But the inside got a modern, minimalist makeover. They got the idea right- if you are a budget hotel the renovations must be simple. And it works. Nice inviting colors, laminate floors (PERFECT for pets- in case they have a little accident), flat screen TV. The room was tiny though. Barely had room for the full size bed my husband and I were sharing. And it felt muggy in the room even with the window unit air conditioner on. The bathroom could use a little renovation. The microwave and fridge are great especially if you want to save some money on food. Laundry facilities were very convenient, especially when we had some dirty beach clothes and towels we needed washed.

The pool was nothing special. I was thinking of going for a dip but there were some very rowdy and unsupervised children dominating the pool area most of the time we were there.

For dog owners there are a few tiny dirt areas in the underground parking lot. They provide poop bags. Unfortunately my dog is picky about where he does his business so we had to walk all the way off the hotel property and around the corner to where there is a grass sidewalk strip.

I think the location of the hotel is just perfect. 10 minutes from Newport Beach and Balboa Island, 20 minutes from Laguna and Huntington Beaches.

The neighborhood the hotel is located in is perfectly safe. In fact we took a little drive around and looked at the charming houses and cottages on the neighboring streets.

Staff was great from the manager and front desk to the housekeeping. They welcomed us and our dog with open arms and even suggested a nearby dog park.

Hotels this close to coastal towns that are clean and convenient are hard to find in Orange County. Especially one that is so inexpensive and pet friendly. This Motel 6 is definitely a hidden gem.
