This is the third or fourth year we are here at the Motel 6 Newport with our ginormous beast. We come for a couple of weeks and stay the first night here, before moving to our timeshare. Not much has changed since last year. It is still the basic motel format, the rooms were updated last year I think, this year we were in the other wing of the motel, but the rooms are the same. It is clean, seems a bit damp and musty-smelling, but that's due to the humidity and moisture. (No change from any other year.) They provide soap, there is a vending machine and an ice machine off the lobby as well as coffee. There's greenery around for your dog, and you can walk to various shops and restaurants, which is nice. Plenty of parking. This is an interior-hallway Motel 6, so if you want to have access to the outside as much as possible get a room on the end. First floor is just double queens, no kings except on the 2nd floor. Wifi available - for a fee - in some rooms but not others. Reservations were super easy to make online, the pet policy is any pet of any size (and just try finding THAT elsewhere!) for no additional fee, and where else can you get a room in Newport in August for under $75 including all taxes (which are obnoxiously high in RI but that's not Motel 6's fault)? The absolute BEST thing happened to us, though. We arrived super early - I have no idea what time check in is, but I'm sure it's not before noon and probably more like 2 pm. We actually arrived at 8:30 in the morning, and thought we'd see what time we could check in... they let us have the room right then, for no additional charge! They were so nice and so helpful, and having driven through the night we were able to get some much-needed sleep that morning. The front desk was just so nice, and accommodating. Everyone was also really nice to our dog, even though I think some of the staff were a little thrown by him (he is a 200# Saint Bernard and as friendly as they come). Also, speaking of dogs, this is also walking distance to the local dogpark. We will be back next year, of course!
