No-Frills Motel
It’s basically your above-average motel. The room was very small but didn’t feel overly old or uncomfortable to walk around in. I’d say it was a much better motel than others I’ve seen but the comfort is that of a motel’s. For example, the bed was very firm and uncomfortable to sleep in. And every move you make is super loud. If you toss and turn throughout the night, it’ll be loud. Second, the mirror in our room was placed behind the door against the wall. The area was fine but the window curtains didn’t sit flush with the wall so anyone standing at the mirror would be seen by people walking by the window. So you can’t get dressed there. Third, there was no hair dryer in the bathroom and we were asked where it was like we were the ones who took it. Didn’t they ask the previous people?? And I had to use the bag for the fourth issue, which was that one of the window blinds had snapped off. If any creep walks behind the building, they could easily look into the bathroom and see you showering. I used the empty hair dryer bag to block the window in that area. Also, the shower curtain had one long transparent strip which is weird if you need to share the bathroom and don’t want the other person to see you naked. There was also a missing tile above the mirror in the bathroom. Overall, the room was just basic. There was AC and a television, although it wasn’t centered and couldn’t be tilted, a microwave, and a mini fridge. Expensive for the quality but cheap for the location.

A good place, but could’ve been better
Nice motel, clean and well-kept. Good location, good price. Only complaints are no coffee maker in room and no ice machine on the property. And bathroom sink not draining well. But overall, we were happy.

Alternative to High Priced Newport Accommodations
We wanted an experience outside of the high price of staying in Newport with the convenience of Newport. We found it!!
