1. The "bedroom" part of the one bedroom suite had no air conditioning. When the accordion door to the bedroom was closed, my pores transformed into tear ducts. 2. Two pubic hairs were observed, a red one on the bathroom sink cold water knob and a white one embedded into the old beige blanket. 3. I would've taken photos had... More

I am sorry you had to spend even a minute of your vacation dealing with cleanliness issues. I know there is a certain level of satisfaction expected when staying at our properties and you did not receive this. Please rest assured I will have our housekeeping staff address these concerns moving forward to avoid any future occurrences of this nature.... More

Nice, helpful staff made the stay pleasant. The hotel is a bit tired and the room stuffy, as the A/C unit was a great distance from the bedroom area. Standard room accommodated our needs adequately enough.

This place is literally a nightmare as others have mentioned before. Dont stay here. The staff is extremely unprofessional, poorly trained, rude and slow starting from management down. This place needs an overhaul starting from the dated accommodations, to the staff. Save your money and find another property, or look into AirBnb. The ONE good thing is the location of... More

I am so disappointed to hear your interaction with the resort staff did not meet your expectations, as this is not part of the Count On Me service we take pride in at Wyndham. It is imperative that our guests are treated well. Please rest assured that we will be taking action to ensure that this is not an issue... More

Location is good, view is nice from some rooms . However, the parking is limited, the rooms are very small, kitchen is tiny, no pool. The restaurant downstairs is very noisy. Very disappointing for a Wyndham.I

I was nervous of recent bad reviews but we enjoyed our stay very much. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was great, no ocean view from our room but not a problem. Roof deck had beautiful view of the harbor. Room was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Noise was not an issue on the 4th... More

This property is not but should be condemned!

We are disappointed to hear that our services and amenities did not meet your expectations. At this particular site we are currently in fixed time, meaning owners at the resort own specific unit numbers. This greatly limits our ability to place other types of guests in water views, otherwise we most deifinitely would have. We keep the vacancy sign up... More

We were pleased with the location of the hotel - it is convenient to the restaurants and visitor's center. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly but not effective. Problems with equipment in the room were not resolved in 3 days. The air circulation in the room can be described as stuffy even with the AC running all... More

The view from our room was amazing, upper floor above the dock and water. Some room views are not on the water. The place is located off the street with very limited parking. The front door is manual so when you are lugging your stuff in it is hard to maneuver. There are 3-4 luggage racks to wheel in and... More

I was a little underwhelmed by this hotel. The furnishings are really dated, which surprised me since the room was expensive. The room was clean though, and the bed was comfortable, so no complaints there. Really you are paying for the location, which was fantastic. Walking distance to all of the shopping and restaurants on the waterfront. Parking was tight.... More

We stayed here for 1 night (May 2015) Got a room with a gorgeous view of the Newport harbour. As with all the wyndhams I've ever stayed at, room was quite nice... Furnished nicely.. With all the essentials but that view is what made it special. Loved it!
