Pull in under the roof at the office, and first thing you see is a tall brick planter topped with a careful arrangement of fossils, beach rocks, and even petrified wood, plus flowers. Not a weed in it, nor a rock out of place.

Yes, it's an older motel, with interesting colors in the rooms (loved the looked-original lavender tile wall in our bathroom), but everything worked fine. Fridge, microwave, modern TV; heat worked perfectly. Net got iffy at night; we used our phone as hotspot then.

Room was scrupulously clean when we checked in, and after housekeeping. Walls are thin, but clientele was never rowdy during our stay. Shower temp did fluctuate once or twice during a long shower, but there is plenty of room to step forward out of the spray for the several seconds it takes to come back to normal temp.

This does not seem to be a "residence" motel. No drug deals, no cars coming and going late at night, no "residents" hanging out, no dogs roaming off-leash. Just travelers. Which was a welcome change from many of the places we've stayed (and why we rarely stay at Motel 6s anymore).

The family that owns it are all hard workers, and they're fantastic about cleaning/restocking. They do all the cleaning themselves, and you won't find a stray hair or bit of overlooked trash anywhere in the room. They live there, and they are frequently visible, though not intrusive.

We were in the area house-hunting, as well as working on laptops. Before Money Saver, we'd stayed in a $100+/night Travelodge in Newport, then a $75 terrible motel (Summer Wind), then booked two nights here @ $60. This motel beat the others by a mile. We extended stay for about 10 more days.

The hospital helicopter landed two times (neither were emergencies) while we were there, which was great to watch. And sometimes you can hear sea lions barking from the back parking lot :)

Room tip: Ask for a room on the back side for less traffic noise.

I booked at this Motel expecting and average budget motel, and discovered quickly it was sub average. There's a sign near the bathroom warning of taking showers and "how the water fluctuates, so to be careful". OK, at least they warn you, that's good, but with so many other issues, and extremely noisy, I regretted booking here.

Cheapest room by half, but good value. We got a good nights sleep and the place is very clean, though old. The TV and internet worked fine. The walls and ceiling are thin, so just hope your neighbors are quiet.

Room tip: facing away from US 101

There are no reasonably priced motels in Newport so we took a chance on this one. If you get a Queen room (one bed) you will be on the second floor in the back with no elevator. The room was clean but austere (few power outlets, no hair dryer, dim lighting) but there was a working fridge and microwave. We were a bit worried about our car as there were 2 shady guys living in an old car across the street (never moved the whole time we were there), and a van that kept pulling in to the lot beside our car several times a day and talking on his cell phone - not sure what he was up to. The room was OK but I've attached a photo that shows how their maintenance man has unique ways of fixing things.

Room tip: Avoid the creepy back side of the motel

So we had to find a last minute room. Thank God this motel had a 2 bed room, their last one I might ad. From the outside it looked a little sketchy but beggars cant be too choosy. It was a little spendy but it was late and we were tired. The office gal was so nice and, to our delighted surprise, the room was wonderful. The bed felt just like being at home in my own, perfect. VERY clean and smelled so fresh. No a/c but it was a cool evening and the window opened all the way. I would definitely stay again.
