The Wellington resort is right on Newport harbor and we had great water views from our suite. The accommodations are very nice and had everything you would Need for your family , especially a second bathroom. Parking was right outside the door, and the pool was very nice , just a short walk from our suite. The resort is located...

We stayed at the Wellington Resort off season, in February, during a very cold spell. We had an extremely positive experience. We are part of RCI and stayed on a "last call" trip and did receive a good deal. Check in was a breeze, parking was outside or under the building. There was a luggage trolley at the door to...

We will occasionally look for timeshare availability in Newport this time of year if we have expiring points or week. First time staying at Wellington. We got a 2 bedroom Lockout unit facing the water. Very happy with the large unit. Very clean and furniture in good shape. We are OK with no mid week maid service and will usually...

It was furnished with a kitchenette that had what was needed to prepare daily meals. The buildings and grounds were well kept.The staff was very friendly, Although, our visit was the last week of...

Lovely 1br with full kitchen timeshare. Decor was nothing special but the location & quietness was outstanding. I would recommend this place if you are looking for more of a home versus hotel. Staff at timeshare were pleasant and helpful.

The room was a good size and due to coming in after Labor Day, the price was good. The staff could be friendlier, the charges for everything could be eliminated. Yes they charge for cleaning the room. They treat the renters/quests differently than they do the others who have time shares and own the condos. We wont be back.

This is my second summer staying here for a week with children. This is not a hotel. It is a time share resort that rents various configurations of their rooms. It is set up so that they can rent the entire suite or just one room similar to a hotel room. I have found it less expensive to stay the...

Let me preface this by saying we booked very late and were just grateful to get a room in Newport as a part of our road trip. Also it should be noted that the rooms were clean when we arrived. However for $300 for a single night this could only be described as painfully bad. I would still be slightly...

I booked the Wellington through a third party site. They promised one price for a waterfront room and kitchen suite. When we arrived, the property put us in a tiny bedroom with a small bathroom. We went back to the front desk and asked for what we had booked. We were put into a waterfront suite, but they took us...

We apologize for any inconvenience. Initially you booked a standard room which was described on booking.com. We were under the impression after Marcia did your upgrade that we rectified your expectations and you were satisfied with the suite. We hope you reconsider returning to stay with us again.
