“Great place to stay, especially with young kids”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

We are a couple but would also find this resort kid friendly. Very clean and great facilities. Pools are clean and were not crowded during ou weekday visit. No water view but easy walking distance to town. We would definitely return.

Our family of 5 spent our summer vacation at the Newport Resort. The resort has a great location just a short walk from the Egg Harbor shops, restaurants and marina. There are many amenities for a family with kids. Nice indoor and outdoor pools, fitness room, game room, ball pit, playground and lobby with books and board games. The rooms are nicely decorated, but a little cramped especially with the hideaway bed pulled out. Everyone was very friendly. The only complaints are everyday housekeeping kept wanting to clean our room at about 9:00am. We had to continually ask them to come back later. I've never experienced this before. I thought housekeeping tried to clean rooms between 11:00 and 3:00 when guest were most likely to be out their rooms. The other minor complaint is the continental breakfast. The options were very bland and we actually could not eat it after the third day. We bought food and cooked in our room. Other than that it the Newport is a great resort for a Door County vacation.

The friendly staff welcomed our family of five with open arms. Very smooth check in process! Room was easy to get to and perfect. Two bedrooms with two bathrooms, living room and full kitchen. That was a huge plus since the market was short drive/walk down the street. We were able to cook and save money and stress by not eating out with the two little ones. The dishwasher was a huge plus. Bedrooms fitted our needs perfectly, also the children loved the whirlpool tub in our room. We were on the bottom floor and had no issues. Very clean. We LOVED the indoor and outdoor pools. Indoor was perfect when it was at night and the children wanted to swim before bed. Nice selection of local restaurant menus from around the county right by the front desk so you knew how much and what you were getting. It was a nice area and we plan on staying at this hotel for years to come!

Room Tip: 212 has the big balcony overlooking the marina. Beautiful patios to watch the sunset.

This was a last minute stay, and we ended up extending our stay to three nights. Our two bedroom condo, while not luxurious, offered a full kitchen and nicely decorated family room with a flat screen tv and DVD player (free DVDs at the front desk). Our beds had nice down comforters and good pillows. The indoor/outdoor pools are clean, and had nice, soft towels- unusual. There is a sauna, outdoor playground (Rainbow play system- looks new), and indoor playground (think McDonalds play system meets Chuck E Cheese ball pit). Our family loved the arcade and the game room, where we did puzzles and played checkers, and borrowed books to read. The free breakfast was fine- cereal, many types of donuts, oatmeal, bagels, toast, English muffins, and juice. There is coffee, tea, and hot chocolate offered all day long. The staff was very friendly, and housekeeping did a good job. The location was good- maybe a block off the main street in Egg Harbor. I tried figuring out if a better place existed in Door County for families, and I did not find one. Our family is already trying to figure out when we can return.

I'm giving this hotel 3 stars because the first night we had to stay in a room (room 118) that smelled like smoke. No, it actually smelled as if you were in a bar were everyone in there smoked except you! We asked at that time if we could change rooms and they said the hotel was full and so they gave us an odor neutralizer spray. Which did not work at all. It was late at night we were tiered and with a baby; so I didn't complain and put up with it. The next day I could not take it anymore, with a terrible headache I asked again to see if we could change rooms. One of the front desk went with me to the room and he said he couldn't smell it but that he would try to see if we could move. They did found another room for us and we had to move everything in less than 10 minutes. They moved us to room 113 on another wing of the hotel which was night and day in regards to the smell. So, if they had given me this room to begin with then I would have rated them 4 stars because over all everything was very clean. I'm glad they changed our room otherwise I was ready to check out and go home early.

Room Tip: Don't accept room 118 if you are asthmatic or allergic to smoke.

My family recently stayed in a 2 bedroom condo at the Newport Resort and had a great stay. From the first moment of your arrival you can tell that they value service - and have a couple signs in the lobby advertising their Trip Advisor ranking. Everything was clean and well maintained. Bikes were like new and plenty of them were available. Resort had board games and books available in the library for guests to borrow and the staff made every effort to welcome us which was very nice.

Also a plus was the location of the hotel. While it would have been nice to be on the water, the hotel is just a short stroll from all the restaurants and shops in Egg Harbor.

Finally, unlike most motels and hotels in the area, the resort did include a free breakfast. As some have commented, it is a fairly basic continental breakfast with no hot options available, but everything was fresh and kept stock. Family ate everyday we were there and it was always a welcome start to the day.

With all this stated I really wanted to give the hotel a 5 star ranking but unfortunately I just couldn't because of the room. While the 2 bedroom was well maintained and nice in many ways the master bedroom was just too small. They had fit a king size bed and a small dresser in the room, there was literally less than 2' around the bed to walk (probably closer to a 18" from the dresser to the bed). This left no place for luggage so we ended up putting my wife's bag on a luggage cart in the master bathroom (which is a decent size and has a huge Jacuzzi) and putting my bag in the closet (standing up since the closet is only about a foot wide). Probably should have unloaded my bag into the dresser which would have helped, but no way could we have unloaded both our bags into the dresser. Since we were there just with our kids this worked ok, but I really got tired of trying to squeeze past the dresser. Also because of how tight the room was, the air conditioner in the master bedroom was right next to the bed (i.e. 2 feet from my face) which made it too loud and uncomfortable to use while we were in the room. Thankfully though the main room air conditioner was able to keep everything cool enough so that I could turn the unit in our bedroom off at night (had to leave our bedroom door open though). Of course this also brings up the issue that the 2nd bedroom doesn't even have a air conditioner so had to leave that bedroom door open at night also.

So...... while I would recommend this hotel (and would definitely stay here again in we were in the area) do be aware that the 2 bedroom units are snug and may not work as well for two couples to share.

My daughter got married in the gazebo at the resort. Everybody at this resort, starting with Sandy the manager, went out of their way to provide excellent service. Everyone in our party was very pleased. The rooms are spacious and the whirlpool bathtubs are a bonus. Both the outdoor and indoor pools are nice. It is walking distance to the shops in Egg Harbor as well as the harbor. There is a nice grilling and picnic area if you want to stay in - this worked great for our large group.
The gazebo area is away from the noise of the resort so it was a perfect setting for the wedding. The photographer took great outdoor shots around the resort. I would recommend this for a vacation or a wedding destination.

Room Tip: The staff will help you get the type of room and location you want when you make your reservation.
