“Newport is aging and not clean”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2008

We have stayed at the Newport 4 times in the past 8 years. While it is in a nice location, we were quite disappointed this time and will not be staying again. When we checked in, we questioned the rates because they were more than double last years. We were politely informed this was due to the time of year, which we accepted. However, the cleanliness was not good at all. The beds were not even made the second day. We found three used bandaid wrappers, dried up spaghetti, popcorn, smashed cherries on the deck, dental floss, and worst of all, a scum ring around the whirlpool tub, all from the previous renters. The towels were mismatched and just thrown on the towel rods. There was an old face cloth on the back of our toilet for all three days. We complained to the assistant manager, who did come to the room, but kept making excuses and told us she was "sorry we felt that way." We didn't FEEL any way, just stated facts. My friend, who volunteers in her church clothing room, said they wouldn't even put towels out that looked like that. I think since we had questioned the rates at the beginning, they felt we were looking for a free room, which was not the case. However, we probably should have been compensated. We are really disappointed in this situation, as we like the location. Also, we were treated as complainers, not guests.

My sisters and I decided to spend a long weekend together at the resort. I personally had never been to Door County so I was looking forward to checking out a new area.

The accomodations were superb. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with a kitchen, dining room, living room and deck. We had everything we needed to make our own meals. A grocery store was just a block away.

We did not use the pool area so, I won't comment. The hotel staff were very good and the room, as well as the lobby area were immaculate.

I definitely would recommend this resort and hope I can plan another holiday there.

I had booked a two bedroom suite for a long weekend stay with my sister. The rooms themselves are very clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped should you decide to cook, but why cook when the front desk clerks are very helpful finding good restaurants in the area??

The pool was pretty nice, so was the large hot tub and sauna. They have a small but well equipped excercise room that was a nice thing to have when trying to stick to a excercise regime!!

I also liked their movie rentals and the board games they had available for the rainy day we encountered.

Overall great amenities, very friendly staff, and great value!

Booked two suites mid-week in August for two familys. Booking very efficient, e-mail confirmation received within minutes. Rooms were clean, modern and spacious with a DVD and nice touches like Visitor Review books left in the rooms which proved very useful. Easy parking and short walk down the hill into the town. The only disappointment was the breakfast - ran out of milk, bread, etc. and eating area was small - solution was to eat early or skip breakfast. Other than that minor fault throughly enjoyed our stay. Egg Harbor is much more peaceful than the main towns further north and we didn't mind the short drive for the fish boil restaurants. We loved the hotel and plan to return to see Egg Harbor in winter.

This was our 2nd year at this resort. We plan on coming back every year for at least 5-7 days. The kids enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools while we enjoyed the 2BR suite with king size bed. The resort is quiet and peaceful while the staff is excellent.

This resort has an indoor and outdoor pool. Better yet, it has an an indoor and outdoor playground, suitable for the 2-7 year old set. The indoor playground has a ball pit - I could hardly drag my kids outside. Our 2 bedroom suite was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed renting movies from the front desk ($3) to watch each night. The rates seem to bounce around all summer; if you have flexibility in dates, you can save some money. Our pre-season rate was dirt cheap given the amenities. The only drawback is that this resort is not on the water.
