We stayed at the Wellington for two nights on our anniversary vacation in Newport and loved it. The view of the harbor from our balcony was beautiful. It was pricey, but it was impressive. The unit had a bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom and in suite washer/dryer. The unit was immaculate, the bed was comfortable. Allie checked me in and... More

I stayed at the Wellington Resort this past weekend with 13 other girls for a bachelorette party. We booked two rooms and had more than enough space for everyone. The rooms are not only spacious but very clean and while not super modern, they have everything you need. All rooms have beautiful ocean views and easy access to a nice... More

We love staying at the Wellington. The spacious layout of the suites with two full baths, the views, lush grounds, helpful/courteous staff and awesome local make for the best vacation experience. Newport has been one of our vacation destinations for several years. Purchasing a timeshare at the beautiful Wellington Resort a few years ago was a dream come true. When... More

I read several reviews of the Wellington Resort in Newport, RI. Some were good & some were awful! I have to say that I have been a timeshare owner at this resort for 20 years. I have watched the upkeep & repairs they have done every year & must say, the resort has done an excellent job. I love this... More

My husband and I exchanged through RCI for this resort and were pleased to have been able to get a 2-bedroom 2-bathrrom unit for the beginning of October. Being after the "in season" the resort was very quiet, perfect for relaxing. We brought friends who also fell in love with it. It's location is perfect - at the quieter end... More

We actually had a reservation issue at another place, so the desk clerk called here and they got us a room. The staff was very friendly when we arrived. Very helpful with local info. We got a one bedroom for over $200, pretty pricey. Especially for the time of year. However, we were stuck and needed a place to stay... More

My husband and I decided to go to Newport for a short fall weekend at the very last minute and were pleasantly surprised to be able to use our RCI membership to find a place. The Wellington resort is a well-maintained property close to everything. Our unit was spacious and very clean with lots of amenities. They do not supply... More

We were so pleasantly surprised at this gem of a hotel in Newport. The suite we had was huge, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and huge terrace overlooking the Newport harbor along with smaller terrace off the larger bedroom. It was immaculately clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was two beautiful pools, one... More

Four girlfriends and I stayed her last weekend and it was perfect for us. Spacious, on the water, a nice pool on the water, walking distance to all the action and a fair price. We would go back. That said, its not a "cool" place and there is no scene. The decor is also outdated (think wall paper and forget... More

Clean and spacious. A great value. Been here twice for bachelor parties and it really does the trick. Close to everything and nice pool. Not the Ritz, but quite a good place to stay in Newport and not spend $900 a night. Decor is a little old and the TVs are small and old but that's not why you go... More
