“Pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate our 31st anniversary and were a bit concerned that this was a companion resort to the Long Wharf Resort across the street but from the moment we checked in (@ Long Wharf Resort) we were greeted by warm smiling faces and cheerful friendly service. The check in process took less than 10 minutes and we were on our way to our room on the 3rd floor. The room was extremely clean (I always check for bed bugs, yuck) and the view of the harbor was spectacular! The Inn is close to town but bring comfortable walking shoes as we did a lot of walking! We love Newport and usually make sure to eat at Brick Alley Pub but also wanted to try some of the other restaurants. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we went to Diego's for dinner one night. The food was great (great calamari and fish tacos) and our waitress Jess was awesome. When she found out it was our anniversary she brought us champagne! Nice touch! We loved lunch at Benjamin's Raw Bar (seafood mac'n'cheese) and had another fabulous dinner at the Lamp Light Grille. We will definitely be back again next year!

Room Tip: All rooms have a water view. Be sure to go to the roof top and see the view!

My wife and I stayed here over the Memorial Day week. We are Wyndham owners, but got the resort through an RCI exchange. The units here are 1 bedroom with kitchenettes and a living area. The windows face the Newport harbor, with western-facing units
overlooking a working crab and lobster dock and the southern-facing units overlooking the wharfs and the sail boats. The unit was clean and well maintained and comfortable for two.
The kitchenette has a two burner stovetop, but no dishwasher, so cooking requires hand washing the dishes. The air conditioning is provided through a window unit in the living area.
During our stay, the air conditioner went out, so the resort moved us to a different unit on the same floor. Maintenance (Mac) helped us move and it took less than ten minutes. The new unit gave us a different view of the harbor. The next day, the front desk called and said that my wife's driver's license was found by housekeeping in the couch of the old unit. We didn't thank them enough for returning it. During our stay, we went to Boston, about 1-2 hours away, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, about 1 hour away, and walked to the shops and restaurants in the wharf area. We did not tour the mansions, but did walk along the Clfff Walk one afternoon. The weather was great except on Saturday before we left. On that day, we rode the Newport train for lunch.
There are a variety of restaurants in walking distance to the resort. Our favorite was Benjamins Raw Bar, which has a great seafood and prime rib special between 4 pm and 7 pm.
The Moorings restaurant is more formal, but equally good. One of my favorite shops was Geoclassics Gems and Minerals on Bowen's Wharf.
We will return to this area in the future and will stay here or at one of the other Wyndham properties. I will review the tours and other locations in a separate listing.

This place is very nicely located on Long Wharf great view and a short walk to the center of the action. Plenty of places to eat, drink and shopping. We had a two bedroom, two bath unit that was well equipped. Everything worked and was in clean condition. Plenty of good quality towels, shampoos and soaps. The check in/check out was quick and the staff was helpful and friendly. Thumbs up!

The view. It's all about the view. The rooms in the Inn On Long Wharf each have a great view. The room was nicely appointed checking in at the Wyndham Long Wharf across the street was easy parking was convenient. The view of the harbor and the fishing boats was great. It is a short walk to the main area of Newport. It was exactly what we expects and gave us the view we hoped for -- watching the fishing boats go out before dawn ws fun. We unreervedly recommend the hotel.

Just rented 3 one bedroom units for Santa's arrival into town. All 3 units were clean and worked well for all of us. Staff was wonderful put, us on one floor and no complaints since we own across the street at Long Wharf. Going to re-book next year and hope to do so each year til the kids don't like us anymore:)

We stayed for three nights (Thanksgiving 2011) and the total was over $450.00 with taxes. Not too bad if everything worked and we could sleep without interuptions. We didnt enjoy our stay for the following reasons: The room had a broken whirlpool tub. The walls are thin and I could hear the doors slaming outside of room. The "heated" pool was too cold to swim in and the slide was closed. The televisions were outdated and had poor reception. Finally, we received a crank call at 1:30 in the morning. I suspect it was a gentleman from the front desk because I could hear the other employee in the background. When I mentioned it to the front desk employee the next morning, he said the only way a call could have gotten forwarded is if someone called and knew my last name. No one knew I was staying there. Horrible. What a shame.

Room Tip: Not a room near the exit doors.

Stayed in Newport many times and only noticed this place by jogging by it. It was never listed on any hotel websites except while planning for this trip, There is mysteriously scanty info on the Wyndham website about this property and sister Wyndham Long Wharf. Both are vacation timeshare condos rather than a hotel. No explanation of why the two separate buildings/names either. (Inn on Long Wharf is one bedroom units, Wyndham Long Wharf is 2,3 bedrooms and houses the guest facilities.) Apparently, they sell the units as hotel rooms in the off season.
Inn is directly over Newport Harbor with great view from rooms. Full kitchen w/everything if you wanted to cook. Bathroom above average: big w/ large Jacuzzi tub. The other furnishings were basic hotel room quality. Located within short walk to many restaurants, shopping, but at end of rather dark desolate wharf. (Safe area though.) Again, mysteriously, there is very little signage on the whole place. It's like they don't want anyone to find them. Tiny unobtrusive sign tells people Inn check in is down the street at the other buliding. (I wouldn't have seen it and only knew from reading another post here.) Better lighting and signage would be nice. There is no maid service and there are no guest amenities in the Inn. (A local newspaper was outdie the door in the morning. Nice.) The fitness center in main building is typically small. The equipment is new and high quality but limited. Indoor pool a disappointment. Teeny with minature golf-like waterfall. Meant only for very young kids to splash around in, not meant for actual swimming. Outdoor pool covered for season, but not big either. For a "vacation resort" timeshare place, you'd think those would be really well done amenities.
Worth a stay to be right over the water with great view. Facilty-wise, nothing special. Kind of odd "find-us-if-you-can" vibe. Better pick for families, people who want to cook in-room.
