Reviews for Newport Marina
Simply Magnificent Marina, 2016-09-07
Captain: , Herrington Harbour, MD (230)

Steve Sullivan deserves the praise and recognition that so many boaters note. He runs Newport Marina with a sense of pride and attention to detail that is unparalleled. Our 3 day visit began with perfect instructions for approach and docking. Steve is extremely attentive to all matters in docking vessels and making the owners feel like special guests.

The marina is, as many other note, simply spotless. Everything looks brand new, and that is because Steve is constantly cleaning, tweaking, and improving. EVERYTHING works as it should: electric, WiFi, water, bathrooms, showers, laundry, BBQ grills, pool, et. He packs an impressive amount of amenities into the space he has. The location is great. Close enough to walk to everything and far enough to be peaceful in the evenings.

We wanted to stay longer and no problem. Steve made it happen. We had guests fly in and needed to park. No problem. Steve took care of it. We have a dog. No problem. Steve loves pets and makes it easy -- even sent us to a pet friendly restaurant the first night.

We will come back without hesitation again and again.

Captain: , Boston (108)

This marina is great!!! The facilities and docks look brand new. Everything was clean and perfect. Steve the dock master was very nice and accommodating. We loved it so much we stayed and extra day. The location is close to the heart of Newport, yet just enough away to enjoy peace and quiet if you so choose. One of the best marinas we have stayed at.

One of Newports best!, 2016-07-26

Very nice location, nice pool and unltra clean bathrooms, dockmaster is a bit of a charactor, but he warms up on you after a while.

Captain: , Norwalk (293)

This marina is an excellent choice if you want to stay at a marina which caters for medium sized boats as opposed to mini cruise ships.
Steve is a very helpful and pleasant fellow who runs a very professional and clean marina. Thye best experience at Newport yet.

Captain: , Milford (530)

we spent one night and found Steve to be very helpful, best dockmaster ever. The docks and grounds and bathrooms were immaculate. Very convenient to walk around town and have dinner. We will stay here when we come to Newport.

The best of the best! Steve goes above and beyond. We have been visting Newport for the 4th of July for years, and switched to Newport Marina 4 years ago, couldn't be happier. Safe, secure, clean and minutes away from everything Newport has to offer.

Best marina in New England!!!, 2013-09-20
Captain: , Charleston, SC (10)

Why the best? Steve Sullivan, dockmaster is fabulous! He keeps a clean, safe marina and clubhouse with a beautiful pool, picnic area with 2 grills, laundry and it's all modern and super clean. The marina is located in the midst of really good restaurants on Thames St. and has a view of the harbor entrance and gorgeous sunsets. And did I mention the pretty flower baskets all around?

Captain: , Deep River, CT (250)

This is our first stay at Newport Marina, but not the last. The docks are spotless and new, the heads and showers are fresh and spotless clean. There is a great grilling and picnic area with a tv.
We arrived on a Saturday and did not notice noise from restaurant others mentioned.
Steve is extremely helpful. This is probably the nicest marina I have ever visited. It will be our marina of choice in all future visits to Newport.

Newport's Finest and Most Convenient, 2013-06-22
Captain: , Barnstable (268)

I've been staying at the Newport Marina for about 6 years whenever I do the Bermuda Race or have a reason to visit Newport. In my opinion this is the best and most convenient place to stay in Newport. Sully does an amazing job of managing the marina, and as another reviewer mentioned he seems to be available 24/7 to accomodate arriving and departing boats. The facilities have been substantially upgraded with plenty of showers and laundry facilities. The marina has it's own parking which is a challenge in Newport, and it is easily one of the most convenient locations to the downtown Newport waterfront. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Newport.

Captain: , Annapolis, MD (112)

We grabbed a mooring ball by Goat Island after Annapolis-Newport Race. Well protected and well spaced mooring balls. We were fortunate to be near some 12 meter charter boats (Columbia and heritage) Excellent launch service. I suspect it would get rolly in some of the less protected areas...

Awesome Marina, 2012-10-05
Captain: , Seattle, WA (415)

Wow this marina is awesome! Sent 5 emails to Newport Marina's about availability and Steven is the only one who responded to the email. Great bathrooms/showers (which are going to be redone this winter), great floating docks which are spotlessly clean, close to anything you might want in Newport. But the best part is Steven who is the best dock master we've even experienced. He is right there to help when you arrive and when you leave plus always available to help and provide information and tips. He's awesome when it comes to handling the lines even in very windy weather. We'd recommend this marina to anyone, the best total package we've ever stayed at. While in Newport be sure you go to the "Breakers Mansion"

Outstanding Service, Outstanding Facility, 2012-07-12
Captain: , Charleston, SC (22)

Newport Marina is a jewel! The service from Dock Master Steve Sullivan is best I have ever experienced in a LOT of years of boating. From line handling to answering questions and giving recommendations to keeping the place immaculate... Steve sets a new standard in my book. Docks, pool, showers, laundry all appear to be brand new. Access to Newport is great without the noise and congestion at other locations. Did I mention I really like this place?

Great location, great dockmaster, great facility, 2011-09-30
Captain: , Portsmouth (372)

This is a great base while in Newport. Easy walking distance to pretty much everything and a water taxi stop just a couple of minutes away.

The docks are quite new and in superb condition. The dockmaster, Steve, is exceptionally helpful and friendly and keeps the place immaculate.

WiFi is free but was slow and unreliable. I'm sure they'll address that quickly.

As others mentioned, late night noise from the adjacent bar/restaurant is part of the deal.

It's expensive but this is Newport. I think it's very good value.

Great Marina in Newport, 2011-08-01
Captain: , East Hampton, NY (70)

This marina features brand new floating docks, a very good on-site restauarant (Pier Restaurant), and a charming pool and picnic area, all in the heart of Newport. All upgrades are top-notch and the place is well maintained. It is an easy walking distance from the numerous wharfs in town and dozens of decent restaurants.

Music from outdoor bar does run late, but this is typical of many Newport locations. Overall it is better than other more expensive places that we've stayed at in Newport.

how can you beat this ?, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Greenport, NY (156)

redone (ex-Lee's). new concrete docks. pool. restaurant/bar/night club. easy walk to Bannisters, etc. Steve, dock master, excellent. Highhly recommend. A little tight if you have to back out. Night club is outdoors with live music is very 'active' until about 1:30 so be forewarned.
