Basic sleeping room only. Rooms were clean, but musty smell in hallways and rooms. We went next door to Walmart and bought Febreeze to freshen up the room. No pool or lounge area. Not much else. We were out most of the day and evening, so it was fine for just sleeping. I wouldn't recommend for large group looking to...

Stopped n Newport to see Cliff Walk. An add on to a 2 week trip threw New England. The smell of cigarettes is so strong. You offered bed , that it. No WiFi , frig. or microwave unless you pay extra. Spend the extra towards safer place. Dog's barking , scary people outside.

Stayed a weekend in June, the room was clean and the beds were clean and comfortable. Not all the rooms have a refrigerator and there is a small fee for wifi ($2.99 for 24 hours) but we knew it ahead of time so we were not surprised. Love that there are Wood floors rather than rugs. The A/C worked great...

To plan a last-minute trip in Newport is tough, especially in Spring/Summer. A group of friends and I ended up making a reservation for just one night and I have to say - beware! Although it's a lot less expensive than staying at luxury hotels in downtown Newport, I would suggest you just splurge for something nicer. We tried to...

This place is OK, I guess if you are broke and do not have kids or any other options. There is a heavy marijuana smell throughout the building. The rugs are dirty and homeless people stay here. The rooms have been redone so I imagine they have improved. I did not stay here.

Check-in time is listed at 3 PM, yet when I arrived at 4:30 after driving six hours from southern New Jersey, I was told the room was "not ready yet." When I pointed out that it was now 4:30, a woman, who was not the person at the desk I was dealing with, said that "they had very few rooms...

As there are few places in Newport that allow pets, one's options are already limited, and a clean room for an overnight stay close to the core of the place, especially in the off-season, further constricts one's choices. But the refurbished Motel 6 hit every necessary point -- it was clean, convenient, and a good price. That's all we needed...

Worst Motel 6 we have ever stayed at. We usually look for a budget friendly motel and have stayed at many motels over the years, but this has to be the worst! First of all, this is not a motel where you can park outside of your room. It's a inn style set up where you have to walk through...

The floor of my room was spilled with coffee when I arrived. That was really disgusting. After cleaning myself the floor I complained to the manager and she said that she was going to compensate me. When I checked out, the front desk did not honored the manager's words. That was disappointing. When you book a hotel the minimum you...

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...
