The Motel 6 in Needles has a quiet location along a side street just off I-40 but far enough away to escape the noise of traffic. All day dining is available from Denny's restaurant next door, though otherwise the immediate surroundings are undeveloped. There are two sports parks just down the road, however, and various shops 0.3 miles east along old Route 66. The property is a T-shaped, exterior corridor building offering small but clean rooms, and amenities of an outdoor pool, laundry, cable TV, wi-fi and free coffee. Pets are welcome.
