The Wellington offers a roomy place to stay with Newport Harbor right off the deck and looking out the picture window! We were there for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. It is like having your own apartment, complete with washer/dryer, shower, jacuzzi, formal dining room table, deck overlooking the water. I've stayed at other hotels and this was the... More

There was a kitchen and dining area. Big CLEAN bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Decks and nice views. Parking was right under the building. Reasonable... More

We stayed in August for 3 nights. Our unit was a 2 bedroom with gorgeous view of the Harbor. From our balcony, we could watch the sunrise and sunset. The unit was a bit tired looking and sparse in amenities (no dishwashing soap or sponge to wash dishes) but clean and comfortable. It was walking distance to shops, restaurants and... More

The location is great, right near Newport's downtown on the coast line and the marine. The complex includes several buildings with apartments around a common ground that includes indoor and outdoor pools, BBQ, a view point ramp and some more. Our apartment was pretty large, it included two spacey bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms, a large fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living... More

The resort is actually timeshare condos. The one we had was very large with a kitchen, large dining and living room, jacuzzi tub shower and a king size bed. Other amenities that we did not use such as an indoor & outdoor pool. Great for families. It is a good 10 minute walk to the shops, tons of restaurants along... More

First the positives - a great location in downtown Newport, wonderful communal areas - including great pools. And a lovely BBQ and stunning sunsets.... Yet, the room was appalling. Dark, brown, faded. In the kitchen's case old and in the bathrooms' case old and dirty. We were paying - we think - a lot of money for a vaguely luxurious... More

We had a great two bedroom condo at this nice resort that has pools, easy parking, and a responsive staff. The location is excellent and Newport itself has lots of good seafood and shops and also has a large, beautiful marina.

Wellington is an excellent place for a family to stay. Matty could not be more friendly and helpful. We did not originally book with Wellington, but with another resort that called two days prior to say they had overbooked. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as our stay with Wellington was most enjoyable. It is well kept,... More
