We are staying in a one bedroom condo with a galley kitchen. The layout is shotgun style with the bedroom at the entrance door, a galley kitchen next and then the living room on the water front, perfect for sitting and enjoying the beautiful view of the harbor. The harbor view really makes this a fabulous place to stay. The rooms are clean and the kitchen surprisingly well-equipped with a four-burner cook top, microwave and a full-size refrigerator, dishes and glasses for four, and ample cookware and utensils for light cooking.
The excellent location is a huge plus. It is right in the middle of everything on Thames Street. Parking is provided, another major issue in Newport. There are so many restuarants and shops within easy walking distance that you could easily not use your car for days.
The staff is fantastic. So courteous and helpful, sincerely friendly, seeming to really like you even if you are not all that interesting at all.
Two drawbacks which may not matter: the television is small and of poor quality; sound insulation not so good. If you raise your voices (even slightly) and have an argument your neighbors will know all about the bad boyfriend named Dwight and just why you don't like him.
Beds and pillows SUPERIOR.
We would definitely stay here again.

This place is great. We had a harbor view and enjoyed the sunsets all but one night.
The staff was very friendly, the room was very clean and top notch.
Free parking, free internet, and it is walkable to restaurants and downtown. There is no pool but i would not have used it. We were told that there was going to be fireworks on the Friday of our stay. We enjoyed them from our room, then went out to eat! Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the harbor.

No pool. Can walk to most everything. Very uncomfortable sofa bed. Fully stocked kitchen. Nice marina views. Small, but efficient rooms. Staff was helpful, even though they were working on New Year's Eve. Weird they closed the member's lounge before the ball dropped.

I stayed here for a full week with my two girlfriends and were very happy with the accommodations. Besides the staff being helpful and friendly, the property was basically in the center of town. We didn't have to move our car from the complimentary parking (which there is plenty of this time of year), until we wanted to venture over to the cliff walk. We could have walked there, too - though it may have been a bit of a hike (1.5 miles). The kitchen had all the tools and amenities we needed, including pots, pans, cutting boards, soap, sponges, wine glasses, can openers and more. Full-size refrigerator, two burners and a beautiful view. I plan on going back....and did I mention the view from the roof deck?

Room Tip: Harbor side for the beautiful sunsets, or 6th floor for easy access to the roof deck (to watch the s...

We stayed here with another couple, we stayed in a one bedroom suite. My boyfriend and I stayed in the bedroom and our friends slept on the pull out couch in the living room. Please note if you are thinking about sharing a room and someone will sleep on the pull out couch, bring an air mattress to put on top, the pull out sofa mattress consisted of springs with a cover as thin as sheet over it. Our friends put the air mattress on top and it worked out really well. The suite consists of a bedroom with a queen bed, a 2 room bathroom (toilet and shower separate from vanity/sink), a kitchen with a full size fridge, stove, microwave, sink. The kitchen came fully stocked with glasses including wine glasses. The decor was dated but that didn't bother me one bit as the room was immaculate. The bathroom was spotless and I felt at ease right away. We were able to walk out of our room at night and bask in the great nightlife newport has to offer, no worries about cabs or driving, the entire city was at our doorstep. The view from our room overlooking the marina was incredible, we saw some many beautiful yachts and historic schooners coming in and our and in the mornings we enjoyed watching the fishing boats prep for their day on the ocean. The staff was very nice, extending an extra parking pass for the 2nd car (not protocol, its one spot per unit). Overall I can't say anything bad about this place, if you are used to staying in boutique city hotels and expect a certain level of modern decor, this is not the place for you. But if you appreciate an extremely clean, spacious and comfortable space in a great location for an affordable rate, I would not hesitate to look into the Wyndham Inn on the Harbor.

The location, soft linens and friendly front desk staff are about the only things going for this property. We stayed in a1-bedroom unit with a lovely water view out of the large living room windows. The living room is about 10'x12' and offers a nice couch and chair. Table with 4 chairs, coffee table and tv armoire are junk. Kitchen has lots of pots pans utensils, but is a cooktop and micro only. Hairs in bathroom sink upon arrival. Yuck. Shower curtain moldy. Bedroom is entry way to unit. Odd layout, but they're maximizing view in living room. Nothing special. No deck. No fireplace. Hokey bifold doors separate bedroom from kitchen. Cannot close them from the kitchen side if your partner is sleeping. Bedroom furniture is also very cheap looking. Roof deck features properties bathroom stacks, so not too pleasant.
