Our party of 6 spent a week at the Wyndham Long Wharf in June 2013. We traded in as timeshare owners, and I'm told that a week in June at this property is essentially impossible to get. We generally found the facility to be very pleasant. The location is excellent: a very short walk to "downtown" Newport. The faclity is good, rooms are decent but not luxurious, and -- most importantly -- everything worked.
Checkin was pretty uneventful, except that they tried to put us in a highly undesirable unit, on the second floor overlooking Dumpsters and a parking lot. We protested, and they quickly moved us to a better unit, though also still on the second floor.
We did not really use many of the amenities, other than to sit by the pool from time to time, but the pools were clean and appeared well maintained. The unit itself had all of the usual equipment, full kitchen, etc. One downside is that the units don't have washers and dryers. There is a guest laundry room on the third floor, and there is no charge for washers or dryers, but there is no signup system, so just go and take your chances that you won't be right behind the person who is doing two weeks' laundry for a family of 8.
The resort also has free wi-fi in the units, but it was extremely slow. There were a couple of computers by the front desk that were available for guests' use, and those were a lot faster.
We had one minor problem, but it didn't cause any damage or injury. The resort provides dishwashing powder and laundry detergent -- they are in very similar-looking packaging, and they are placed right next to each other. We ended up puting laundry detergent in the dishwasher, which caused an overflow of suds but no real damage. The maintenance guy said it happens all the time.
Another thing to note is that although there is no charge for parking at the resort, they only provide one parking space per unit, which was a problem since we had two cars. We had to park the second car in a nearby commercial garage, which was about $15/day.
Checkout was also pretty smooth; all in all it's a very convenient and pleasant place to visit.
