Needed a basic room to sleep following a long day of business and didn't want to fight the traffic out of town leaving Newport. This motel 6 is just off of the freeway and next to a gas station/C-store. Across the street there are many options to eat as well. Had a great night's sleep in a clean comfortable room.... More

I stay here when I am working in Orange County. I am a transplant from LA, this hotel makes me feel at home. From the front desk to accommodating any situation. Commuting from LA used to be hard, this place helps you relax in a beautiful setting.

I will actively never again choose any Motel 6. Thnis was the worst. Besides being half-remodeled. it was filthy dirty! The "cubby" that the fresh towels go? there was this dried liquid, and hair! and this meat-chunk. Just right next to the face towels?. and the nasty "desperate" vibe...the loud slamming doors, other guests dogs barking? I could barely stand... More

The location and price were great for our quick turnaround trip to CA. Reality, not so good. I grew up in the area. Oh my gee how things have changed. The hotel caters to transient residents. People who need a cheap place to flop for a while. I expected noise. After all, it's on approach to John Wayne airport and... More

Just wanted a hotel for a mid week concert and Motel 6 has been very good for the price and timing lately. Very Nice staff especially AMY what a friendly sweet heart. Was having us laughing during check in requested extra pillows and immediately got for us. The Motel was clean and staff friendly good night!

I guess the best thing about this place is the pool. So if you're a family with kids who like to splash in a rather big outdoor pool - and that's all - go for it! Otherwise, the hotel is less than bare bones. My room was spacious but no fridge, microwave, iron, or bath supplies. I came down in... More
