“Great location, but not great view from the room.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2010

The location was perfect for us with 2 teen-aged girls, walking Thames St. & shopping. The room was nice, except the pull-out sofa was extremely uncomfortable for sleeping, so we had to put the mattress on the floor every night. Noise was not an issue from the bar on the ground floor since we were on the 3rd floor. However I would request a 5th or 6th floor room so you don't wake up at 6am to the noisy trucks in the alley. You would be lucky to get a room with a view of the harbor, ours was a roof. The staff was friendly and helpful, but no cleaning was done at mid-week, like we have at our "home" resort. The "Member's lounge" is a great feature for getting out of the small room. Parking is free, but very cramped. I loved having the roof to take in the beautiful view of the harbor.

We had not booked any accommodation and turned up in Newport looking for a hotel. We found this place, the price was very competitive. The rooms were 'funny' in terms of they were like little serviced apartments. The bedroom was separate from the lounge area. The air con in the bed room was not great. The room itself was clean enough, they were serviced daily. The location was great, the car parking was free. We travelled with two teenage boys who were in the room next door and they loved it.
There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

The room was perfect. It had everything we needed. We loved the view day and night. We parked for free. We ate in the down stairs restaurant that was on the water at the marina. It had an air conditioner and you could also open the screen door for fresh air. If you went to the roof you could sit and relax and take in the view. It was near everything. We could walk to most places, except the mansions. It was a great vacation.

Ended up in the Inn on the Harbor by accident. Meant to book one of the other Wyndham's in town, there are a few. Great location across from the Red Parrot. Free parking was good. The one bedroom suite was better than an average hotel room, but, really wish it had more amenities. No bathtub, no pool, or hot tub, no view. At least they could give a pass to pool at Wyndham owned nearby property. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Had a great week with my husband at the Newport Inn on Thames Street. We had a one bedroom apartment with a beautiful view of the harbor. The best part was the view and the closeness to restaurants and shops. America's Cup avenue was just a 20 min walk away. That's where you'll find Annie's Restaurant, good breakfast place, and a CVS, a Natural food market and a Stop and Shop grocery store.
You can also take a trolley from there to the Mansions.
The kitchen of our place was tiny, think NY studio, but having lived in small spaces, I did not have a problem with it. It had a microwave, a fridge, toaster, blender & 2 burners. Staff was very helpful and after we said we would not go to the timeshare presentation, they did NOT continue to harass us. Place was very clean. They have maid service once a week and free use of the laundromat.

We had a great time in Newport, RI. Inn on the Harbor was newly remodeled as far as the rooms. They are small and not top of the line. We were not fortunate enough for a harbor view but we did have a wonderful view of the neighboring building's roof and the parking lot. Parking was quite ridiculous in my opinion. There isn't enough parking in Newport PERIOD! Parking at the Inn on the Harbor was 2 deep. So if your car is on the outside you must leave your keys for the staff to move your car so that the person parked in can get out. You get maid service one time - it is called a mid-week clean and tidy. There was a roof top deck that was nice for watching the sunset with a great view of the bridge. Also, there is a bar/restaurant in the bottom and you have to deal with drunken people on the weekend. We encountered a young couple upon arrival that was not acting appropriately in front of our children. If you aren't that worried about the room because all you are doing is showering and sleeping, then have no worries...but if you want extra accommodations such as a pool, well, they don't have one.

This hotel has no amenities -- no pool, no linen change or housekeeping (we emptied our own trash and took it down to the front desk). (once per week housekeeping supposedly came, but our tattered towels didn't get changed) It was sometimes loud and our room had exposed pipes along the ceiling - it was bizarre.

The staff was not very helpul. When we asked about the lack of a pool, we were told that we could use the YMCA several miles away. We then asked what amenities the Y had, or when open swim was (thinking our kids may still want to go) the staff said they didn't know but we could go over and check it out. We decided not to take our vacation time to explore the local Y, so just did without....

The kitchen has a microwave, no oven, no dishwasher, and does have a stovetop. There is one wall air conditioner which did not regulate temperature well in our 2BR unit, and was so loud, we just turned it off at night anyway (we are NOT light sleepers).

Our room had a view of the alley - no balcony or anything either.

The location is right in the middle of the shops and the action on Thames St., which is good if you want a nice walkable location - you are right near everything, but some rooms have noise problems.

Parking is an issue - they take your car keys at the front desk so they can move cars around.

Overall, we had a great time in Newport, but this "resort" was more like a Motel 6 with an extra bed than a Fairfield/Wyndham resort property.
