“Worth Trying For”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Naturally, the time we could get was not the most ideal, weatherwise, but we lucked out -- and hit Restaurant Week to boot. Great eating at reduced prices throughout town -- and everything nearby. The room was fine and had a nice view of the harbor. The only surprise -- and not that big a deal -- was the absence of an automatic dishwasher and, as others have noted, a pretty small sink. Eminently survivable, though. Happily, a strong odor of coal tar experienced on the ground floor did not permeate the third floor room. Would love to go back when more Newport attractions are open, but Wyndham's system has been impenetrable and we're settling for an RCI property nearby next June.

Room Tip: Don't expect to have much choice -- in dates, rooms, etc. Wyndham has these properties sewed up...

Green Features: Taken at face value, the promises of environmentally-friendly practices are laudable. As a practical matter, though, the eco-friendliness here as at most hotels and motels seems to boil down to reduced bath towel choices and a corresponding subsidy to the management.

I struggled with what rating to give this place... overall, I think it is a great choice for staying in Newport! But there were some glaring things that caused me to give it a lower rating. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
Location! Super close to shops and restaurants and the wharf location is so fun!
The views from any room are amazing. Can't be beat.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Comfy beds.
Recently remodeled in lovely, calming coastal decor.
Renovated bathroom is beautiful.
JETTED TUB!!
Kitchenette and full size fridge.
Two TV's, one with a DVD player.
Lots of amenities at the sister property across the street- pool, hot tub, movie theater, etc.
Free parking.

Cons:
WiFi is pretty much non-existent. Couldn't get it to work at all. And no ethernet to plug in to. They definitively need to get with the program on this one...
No dishwasher. No one wants to do dishes on vacation. Especially in that tiny sink.
Although the bathroom is beautiful, they chose pretty flimsy fittings. I felt like the faucet was going to break off at any minute...
A bit stuffy in the room. But bearable.
Amenities are in the other building... we didn't end up using anything over there because it was pouring rain and we didn't want to walk over in our swimsuits!

So as you can see, the pros outweigh the cons, at least for us! The internet thing is an easy fix that they should implement pronto. Then I would give it 4 or 5 stars.

Room Tip: Ask for the sunset side!

This Hotel is also in a Time Share group of Hotels. The furnishings were newer and comfortable. The kitchen was less than expected as there was only a small bar type sink in the kitchen which mad washing dishes , pans etc., difficult. When the description in the RCI directory said on the water they were not kidding. We watched the fishermen going in and out to sea from our living room. Short walk to town to shop and dine. Nothing overpriced as is some tourist areas.
The only negative comment I have for this hotel is the internet is slower than dial up and continued to drop off when we could get on line. When we called the manager we were told they would reboot the router. That did not help. This was a working / vacation. No work could get done. In this day and age of technology there is no excuse for the poor internet in this Hotel.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a water front room.

As a Wyndham owner, I've had my eye on the waterfront rental for two years before it was available on dates my family had to travel. It was Easter weekend and I was concerned it would be understaffed but it was everything I expected from a Wyndham property. Being in an unfamiliar area, I was comforted by the 'visibility' of staff and security during our stay. We had the most beautiful view of the piers from our unit. The rooftop view was amazing as well. Our unit was very clean and more than comfortable. We enjoyed the rooms but our main goal in traveling is to experience the area not stay in the rooms. It was a short walk to entertainment, dining and shopping. The "Rescue our Harbor" tour docks right at the building and offers an excellent tour. We also purchased lobsters right from the harbor next door. We were extremely pleased and would definitely stay there again!

  • Liked — the proximity to local entertainment, dining and shopping
  • Disliked — no actual oven in the unit we used

This was a clean and well appointed resort. the views were awesome and the location was perfect. The desk staff were professional, friendly and helpful. the only complaint we had was the WIFI, which was very poor. This was a good value for us.

Green Features: They operate a GREEN hotel, which was good to be a part of.

a little small but was a pretty unit the views were amazing, watching the boats come and go. Went in December just before Christmas snowing and all, it was nice walking distance to most everything. going back in June got a sneak preview really looking forward to going back, but staying somewhere else. Couldn't beat the area! we're still talking about The Inn, would go again !

Spent spring break in the newly renovated towers. What an amazing experience. The room was amazing...granite counters, garden tub, beautiful views of the harbor. We barely left the resort. Cinema movies daily, indoor/outdoor pool, beautiful workout room, gas grills. Fantastic. Walking distance to all Newport attentions. A jem.
