In the first week of May, the resort was fully booked. Fortunately, I got a quiet one bedroom deluxe unit on the third floor, that faced Newport Harbor and the Newport bridge. All-a-shore, that's going a-shore :-). I put into Newport Harbor many years ago, aboard a Caribbean Cruise ship, that had to race out of Bermuda a day or... More

The location was fantastic. You are in walking distance from just about anything. The roof deck has amazing an view of the harbor and is a beautiful place to get a little sun, have a cocktail or watch the sunset. Unfortunately, my wallet was stolen on the rood deck when I wasn't paying attention. It was later returned with $150.00... More

We love to visit Newport off-season when we can use our memberhsip, but would rent it if it were available peak. But, that's the problem with Newport. It's great in the summer and everyone know s about it. That's why Wyndham has 5 Hotel Resorts and the nicest and newst across the bridge on Jamestown Island. I've stayed Harbor view... More

Overall we had a pleasant stay. Room was dated but clean and staff was pleasant. We didn't like the bedroom right off the entrance, but it was pretty quiet overnight so it wasn't a big issue. We liked being right in downtown, and being able to cook our own breakfast in the mini-kitchen. I wouldn't call it a "resort", but... More

The Good Location is great. Walk outside and you have the harbor behind you and downtown shops and restaurants all in walking distance. We had a partial bay view which was ok but there is a rooftop deck with fabulous expansive view of the harbor and the bridge. I imagine the bay view rooms are great if you can get... More

As I sit in front of the huge window of our room waiting for the sunset over the bay at Wyndham Inn on the Harbor, I read the other reviews and wonder who wouldn't love this place! Mentioning the pipe near the ceiling is totally misrepresenting this Inn. The front desk was super helpful and courteous, and the rooms had... More

Absolutely agree with the February 23 review concerning the reception area. I'm not one to criticize attire but, to be honest, when we first entered the lobby I wasn't even sure the person behind the desk was the receptionist. There was nothing about her appearance that would indicate that she was a member of the staff. Although she was very... More

Both doors to the entryway were wide open and the entire lobby smelled like cigarette smoke... every time we came through. The entire lobby is glass as we approached, and we saw two maintenance workers were hanging around the front desk, chit-chatting with the receptionist as we walked in. They promptly left, but set did set an off-putting first impression.... More

Went to this resort for the week for Super bowl week. It's off season for Newport. Got a room with Ocean view. Most of the rooms comes with Ocean view. Everything in the unit works. And its comfortable for four people. The furniture was dated but comfortable. I slept on the sofa bed for one night and it was not... More

Great location right on the Harbor. Location is central to Thames and America's Cup Way-steps away from great restaurants and bars. Our room had a small kitchen, was clean and neat. Sprinkler pipes run through the rooms, sort of giving the feel of living in a converted destroyer or battleship. However, you'll forget the piping after enjoying the view. Staff... More
