This motel seems to have changed hands recently and the new owners are renovating the motel bit by bit.
At arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady, we were given a bag with some gifts (water, sweets, candybar) which was not expected for such a cheap motel. Also, as they were renovating the breakfast room that we couldn't use, we got some gift cards for Dunkin' Donuts just across the road. Not a perfect breakfast, but a nice gesture for us guests. Also, at reception you can get complimentary fruit, all times of the day. Very thoughtful.
The room was as clean as it gets: nothing is new, so not perfectly shining, and you do still smell some old smoking odors in the carpet, but the cleaner did a great job making it as clean as possible.
All the usual is found in the room (we had a suite, so double rooms): extra couch, desk, chair, TV, good spacious bed, and perfectly working WiFi.
At night there is some noise from the road, but nothing to keep us from sleeping.
All in all, this is a basic but very nice motel, that is cheap but perfect for a few nights while visiting Newport.
