We will occasionally look for timeshare availability in Newport this time of year if we have expiring points or week. First time staying at Wellington. We got a 2 bedroom Lockout unit facing the water. Very happy with the large unit. Very clean and furniture in good shape. We are OK with no mid week maid service and will usually... More

This place was simply great ! Newport is wonderful during October. Most All of the shops, Restaurants & Pubs are open. The best part is that aren't totally crowded and you can enjoy the wonderful food of every cuisine. Back to the Wellington, location os wonderful right on Thames ,easy walk to the center. Magnificent views of the harbor. Our... More

My stay at the Wellington Resort, in Newport RI was very pleasant. We stayed in one of the two bed suites, which was of good size. It was furnished with a kitchenette that had what was needed to prepare daily meals. The buildings and grounds were well kept.The staff was very friendly, Although, our visit was the last week of...

Lovely 1br with full kitchen timeshare. Decor was nothing special but the location & quietness was outstanding. I would recommend this place if you are looking for more of a home versus hotel. Staff at timeshare were pleasant and helpful.

The room was a good size and due to coming in after Labor Day, the price was good. The staff could be friendlier, the charges for everything could be eliminated. Yes they charge for cleaning the room. They treat the renters/quests differently than they do the others who have time shares and own the condos. We wont be back.

This is my second summer staying here for a week with children. This is not a hotel. It is a time share resort that rents various configurations of their rooms. It is set up so that they can rent the entire suite or just one room similar to a hotel room. I have found it less expensive to stay the... More

Let me preface this by saying we booked very late and were just grateful to get a room in Newport as a part of our road trip. Also it should be noted that the rooms were clean when we arrived. However for $300 for a single night this could only be described as painfully bad. I would still be slightly... More

I booked the Wellington through a third party site. They promised one price for a waterfront room and kitchen suite. When we arrived, the property put us in a tiny bedroom with a small bathroom. We went back to the front desk and asked for what we had booked. We were put into a waterfront suite, but they took us... More

We apologize for any inconvenience. Initially you booked a standard room which was described on booking.com. We were under the impression after Marcia did your upgrade that we rectified your expectations and you were satisfied with the suite. We hope you reconsider returning to stay with us again. More

This hotel is very expensive. We had 12 girls and split it and still ended up paying a lot...but that is to be expected in the area. The rooms we got had 2 full bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen dining room and living room, and 2 balconies. Basically it is an apartment. The pool is fine...surprisingly it wasn't packed being...

My wife and I have traveled a little throughout the U.S. over the last 30 years. Since we don't have the opportunity to travel a lot we don't mind paying extra for very nice accommodations. We thought we were getting that with the Wellington Resort in Newport, R.I. We were DEAD WRONG. First off, this is not a resort or... More
