I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Wellington Resort. This weekend, a group of girls and I celebrated our friend's bachelorette party. We stayed in a two bedroom suite in building 5 and it was exactly what we were looking for. The suite was spacious, clean and had direct access to the pool deck and a gorgeous... More

I stayed here for a bachelorette party a few weeks ago. Overall, great location (can walk to all the important things in Newport like marina, shops and restaurants), pool area is a bonus. Cons are that parking is $10/car/night. They are also very old school in their processes; everything seems to be hand written which slows things down a bit.... More

Regarding parking issue, each 2 bedroom suite comes with free parking for 3 cars, our 1 bedroom suite offer a spectacular view of Newport Harbor and comes with free parking for 2 cars, The second bedroom is just that, small bedroom and no water view and comes with free...

The breathtaking vIew of Newport Harbor AND the Pell Bridge took my breath away Warm likeable staff I will definitely recommend to a friend The Clubhouse is open until 11pm for a late night DVD and (free) popcorn night Tip of the cap to Joseph who fixed my remote control on Day 1! The 3 remotes are confusing

Went with my family, and was warned that the pool would close Monday, May 2. Room was dated, chair cushions stained, lots of elevator/heating system noise. But the final straw was when they closed the pool Sunday morning, May 1st, despite reassuring us it would remain open through the weekend, and signs at every elevator and handed to us stating...

I used to stay here as a kid every March with my family for the St. Paddy's parade. Remembering how great of a time we had, I looked into it for my best friends bachelorette party weekend. We booked a 2 bedroom suite for 6 girls. The rooms were better than I remembered! We had a full HUGE kitchen, a... More

We took a small room, and never rarely in it. Hung out by the pool that has a great view. Walked to great restaurants and bars. All in all, a great a location for a couples weekend. Great service at the front desk. We used the common fridge for leftovers and borrowed movies for late night viewing.

We stayed at the Wellington Resort off season, in February, during a very cold spell. We had an extremely positive experience. We are part of RCI and stayed on a "last call" trip and did receive a good deal. Check in was a breeze, parking was outside or under the building. There was a luggage trolley at the door to... More

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
