    The hotel lobby and restaurant were cute but the overall hotel was dirty (rooms, pool, floors throughout the property, rugs in restaurant, etc). Needs a good cleaning and update. Understaffed. Hotel phones didn't work. No staff or towels at pool. Could be cute but needs some work. Marketed as a trendy, hipster hotel and it failed.

    Expensive but it’s Newport! Clean and friendly .

    The location wasn’t great but other than that this place is fine. It was expensive for what it was, but still cheaper than downtown Newport locations and it is really cute and clean. I did get a party vibe so I would be wary of staying there on a weekend, it wouldn’t surprise me if it got loud and but on a weeknight it was quiet.

    I was so looking forward to staying at The Wayfinder again this summer after having such a lovely visit last year…but was disappointed to find that they’re still navigating steep learning curves even in their sophomore season. The once delish Nomi restaurant menu has changed for the worse, the bar staff & restaurant management were(

    This hotel had a super cool vibe and was really close to all of the great shops and restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay there.

    The check In Process was horrible. Very unfriendly staff, mean and rude! Told me to leave if I don’t want to wait for the room to be ready. The check in was at 4 pm which is late already, and when we tried to check in at 4 pm they had no room available/ cleaned yet! We Had to wait till 6 pm to finally get a room. It completely spoiled our trip!

    Good access to Newport

    Asked and received a quiet king suite which was nice. Not enough towels for 4 people but they brought more. Pull out sofa bed was nice and big but no pillows provided for it.

    A couple days in Newport, RI

    The hotel was a nice alternative to the more expensive hotels in downtown Newport. We enjoyed our stay and would consider a stay with Wayfinder again. Their restaurant was a little pricy, but the service was excellent and so was the food.

    One star is one too many stars

    We checked in to find the door wide open with a doggie bowl and used glasses left outside the door. We had to call the mainline and wait for a while as the room phone didnt work - after a long hold we were told it’s just fine and probably cleaners left it open (and left all the unclean stuff outside the door!!!)! We checked out the next day and was surprised to see a so called activity fee of $20 on top of the room charge, we were told it’s for the complementary wine (which is really really sad that included ONE OUNCE of red wine), one small water and facilities like swimming pool (we didn’t even use it)! Really pathetic job of service, hidden fee for sorry activities! Please stay off!

    Needs soundproofing, deep clean and repairs/updating

    For the price paid not so good. The pictures don't line up with the reality. It's like the ads for fast food burgers vs what you actually get. Dark Dingy hallways, pool was closed all weekend, not due to disrepair, but due to private parties etc... If not available for guests it shouldn't be listed as an amenity. Very loud door slams all night long, we had a fan on high on top of the ac running, and it still didn't drown out the noise. Feels like a old motel that had a quick facelift. I was expecting a cleaner, more up to date property. Won't be staying here again.
