We were a little concerned about staying here but were pleased to report that the resort is an overall good resort. We stayed here in late July 2009 - 5 adults and one infant and were able to have enough room in the 2 bedroom unit. We found the unit to be extremely clean so not sure if prior reviewers just had a bad experience or what. We were celebrating my husband's bday while there and the staff went out of their way to bring up matches when we called down stating we forgot to buy them. They also came whenever we called to pick up the garbage, etc.
No question that the location is the best feature of the resort. You can walk everywhere making it very nice, especially when traveling with an infant. The unit itself did have older furnishings but again, were very clean so we did not mind that too much. Plus, we were using RCI points that we had to use or lose so for us it was well worth it. I could understand if you were paying $500/night for this place you may be disappointed.
The pool was a bit small and seemed crowded although we are from FL so our main purpose was really to see Newport and the mansions, etc. Hotel staff recommended a great, non-touristy restaurant off the beaten path of Thames that was just about 3-5 blocks from the hotel and it was so quiant. Buidling was from the late 1700s and you could just imagine someone like Ben Franklin there! (Sorry, I can't recall the name!)
Overall, this is a good resort. We were skeptical due to the reviews but decided to try it anyway due to the RCI points and were happy that we did.
