We decided to do a last minute trip to Newport with our 2 babies, and since we were only going for 1 night, we didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars for a place to stay. I went on a mission to find the least expensive place to stay that was still pretty close to town, and Motel 6 it was.
I thought the location was great- only a few minutes drive into town, and all the attractions we came to see. There was a Dunkin Donuts right down the road, which was good for a quick breakfast, and a shopping center right next door with Walmart, Old Navy, TJ Maxx etc. I did see the porn shop that others mentioned, but honestly I wouldn't have even noticed it had it not been mentioned here in the reviews- it's not directly across the street and it's not like there are a bunch of flashing lights and crude things in the window. So don't even be concerned about that.
There was an issue with our reservation when we arrived- I had called a few days before to change our reservation date (we bumped the trip up a week) and for some reason they moved it to some random date in August. So luckily it wasn't an issue since they were pretty empty.
The room was as expected- no frills, with the yucky bedspreads that you immediately toss to the floor because you know they aren't washed often. The bathroom was updated with a nice shower, and the water pressure was great. The bathroom floor was a little dirty though- There was some noticeable dust and hair in the corner of the bathroom by the tub. The carpet in the room had also not been vacuumed well- there were some wrappers and other things underneath the bed when we were checking to make sure we had grabbed everything before checking out. There was a nice desk area with a chair, which was great for my toddler to sit and color. There was also a luggage stand in the room, which was helpful. We were also very happy about the A/C in the room- it worked really well and kept the room super cold for us, which we love- I find that in most hotels, even 4 and 5 star ones, we can never quite get the room to our preferred level of comfort. The beds were very hard though- my husband and I both complained about our backs the next morning.
So all in all, this hotel is fine for a 1 or 2 night stay if you just need a place to shower and sleep. If we go to Newport again in the summer, we'll probably stay within walking distance of town- finding parking was impossible over the weekend!
