Just located below the Newport Bridge in Jamestown RI, if going for the first time it's a little hard to find but a nice place away from the hustle and bustle of Newport. It is cold and snowy this week but peaceful anyway. Our unit has a garage so let it snow, let it snow!!! Would stay here again

I have to say that after reading some negative reviews, I was a bit concerned. We rented a 2 bedroom unit. We stayed in an end unit. It was huge, comfortable, super clean and very well supplied. Staff were friendly. Kids loved the pool. One the bedrooms was downstairs. Master was upstairs. It was a loft, no door, that was... More

We were very lucky and got a waterfront unit Although the unit furnishings and cleanliness were below Wyndham's usual high standards, it was still a very nice unit with lots of room (nearly 1600 sq ft) compared to other properties in the Newport area. Master bedroom and living room looked out over the water and Newport harbor with lots of... More

Just arrived tonight expecting the vacation we had last year in unit 14. I am disgusted. There are stringss of dust hanging from the walls, stfuff all over the carpetss and I swept a load of dirt from the kitchen and hall floor.

We have been owners at RCI for over 20 years, staying in Newport every April. Nothing available this year in town so we were left with Overlook. The good: very roomy, large living area, laundry works great and full kitchen was nice. The bad: check in staff were rude, we arrived at 345 (check in is at 4) and room... More

Stayed here for the first time over the new years vacation. We were so surprised to have such a beautiful place on the water. Yes the bedding and the furniture could use updating but it didn't make our stay bad. The internet kept going out but again, the place was so nice, quiet and secluded who cares. What I didn't...

Facilities was well kept and clean, a little bit off the path about 1 mile from town. We visited in the off season so pools were closed. The development would benefit from putting in a fitness area at the minimum. Units were very large and well maintained.

The rooms were very nice right near the bridge over to Newport. The property is right on the water. In the morning and evening, the rabbits come out. You are close enough to enjoy Newport, but far enough away that you have a nice quiet place to go to rest at.

We had a 2 bedroom unit with the master being on the ground floor. It was huge with a very large walk in closet. To me when I am on vacation I don't need that large of a closet, we could have made a bedroom out of the closet! The grill and picnic table were outside the master suite which... More

We arrived luckily while staff was still on the premises as they are only here for check-in and check-out on Sat. Any other time you can reach someone at the Wyndham in town. The units offer an attached garage which my significant other loved. The master bedroom is on the lower level with the garage so if you were not... More
