We came here to stay in a friend's time share for a week. When we arrived, we were told by the staff member on duty, Neely, that we were 1 week early. We realized that our friend had given us the wrong date. Even though it was not her issue, she found a place for us to stay that night....

Is wish I could give the Bay Club a better review, but there is room for improvement. It was obvious the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom had been remodeled, but they still needed to replace the carpet in our 2 bedroom unit and update the living room furniture and art work. The Bay Club is in a very old mill. On...

I enjoyed our stay in February of 2013. Room was acceptable (not the quietest but we survived), close to everything. But then I just got a call from a Time Share company trying to get me to go to their presentation on the guise of me "winning something great". I do NOT like having my info sold to outside companies!!

We booked a last minute two-night stay here at a great price. I found the much-maligned manager absolutely lovely and friendly on the phone, and the same in person. On the grand scheme of things, I don't gauge my holiday breaks by the hotel staff so I can't understand why people give it so much weight, whether good or bad......

We've stay at the Bay Club many times over the years. The hotel itself is very nice. The customer service is horrible along with there General Manager. I hope the owners take the time to read this. Its seems there's a lot of complaints regarding customer service. The staff appear like your bothering them. The General Manager in particular is...

My son and his girlfriend came to visit New England for the first time so we stayed all over the area. We loved the hotel as it had everything we needed. The two room suite was perfect for us so we weren't right on top of each other. We found the last parking spot in the fenced in area and...

You drive into Newport and see the front of this building with a lovely sign that makes it look great. But staying there with my friends, we found that they were super un-helpful at the front desk - like we were bothering them. Then, the cleaning service wasn't too swift, the room was noisy at night. No room service. Finally,...

The good: This hotel is in the center of Newport and walking distance (1/2 mile or less) to just about everything except the beach and Fort Adams. It was clean and had nice accommodations -- we had a 1 bedroom townhouse w/ microwave, coffee pot, sink, dishwasher and 1.5 baths. It came equipped with dishes and silverware. The staff not...

I stayed there recently as the guest of a time share customer. Her purse disappeared on the second day and the staff was monumentally unhelpful. Although Josh at the front desk said that they looked at the security camera tapes to see if they could figure out what happened to her purse (which she had in the lobby but not...
