Recently renovated

It was clean, recently renovated, more than I would expect of a typical Motel 6. Good location for someone more focused on the Navy base than Newport, although only a few minutes from town anyway. Minimal amenities- had to ask for a hairdryer, not given shampoo and conditioner, no free breakfast, and had to pay for wi-fi. It's easy to focus on the bad things- it wasn't bad. it was clean, the air conditioner worked great, bed was comfortable enough to sleep, bathroom was clean enough to use.

Affordable stay in Newport RI area

Motel 6 Newport RI was just what I needed. It was an affordable accommodation in the otherwise expensive town. I did not have a car, so having a bus stop within steps off hotel was great bonus. There are shops and eateries next door. Room was rather spacious and newly renovated. It was pretty well maintained. Wi-Fi was extra charge, which is becoming rare these days, but that is how it was. No breakfast, but one can get coffee in the lobby in the morning.

Minimalistic hotel at it's best

I was nervous about staying at this hotel as it IS a Motel 6 and they don't come with the best reputations. It was a lot cleaner than I expected, but had NOTHING but a bed, tv, and clean bathroom to offer. It is a great place to sleep for a night, but don't expect anything more. It felt like a dorm room. Concrete walls made it very echo-y and loud. We stayed for one night because we were running a race in Jamestown the following morning and it was very early, so it was a great location and provided a moderately comfortable place to sleep. That was it. I definitely would NOT stay here with my kids!

WARNING DO NOT STAY THERE IT WAS HORRIBLE!

It was a horrible. Our plane arrived late so we had no choice but to use the reservations. We are military so we usually are not concerned about where we stay. 1. The desk person had been drinking. 2. There were scary people in the lobby it looked like we interrupted a drug deal. 3. The room was filthy the sheets were brown and the room smelled like cigarettes.4. The pillows reeked and they had plastic inner covers which made me sweat. 5. There were people running in the hall way at 3am screaming and slamming doors. I was scared for my safety If they paid me I would never never never go there. WARNING DO NOT STAY THERE!!!

Won't break the bank

Considering how expensive others are and that they want only multi-night stays in other Newport hotels, this was decent.

motel 6 is motel 6

I guess consistency is a virtue. Barren room, second floor, no elevator, extra charge for internet. Better values are usually available.
