Great marina. Dock hands were great and pleasant. Will be back next year!!

by acraigx on Oct 13, 2020
From the minute we arrived the crew treated us like family and our boat as if it was theirs. Friendly, respectful, courteous... The marina had all the amenities we needed, the bar and restaurant was great and an easy walk to great shops and the heart of Newport. Everything made for such a relaxing weekend, could not have been better! Thank you!

Excellent Marina located right off of Thames Street within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Fantastic courteous friendly staff was right there to help tie up and let go. Very accommodating. Expect to go back next season.

First stay. Easy access in front of Little Ida day beacon with plenty of water (we draw 7 feet. Very accommodating team. Quiet night with beautiful views of Newport. If you plan to stay during the summer and if COVID is ever under control, be advised the marina is right next to a night club that I am sure pumps all night long!

West Wind and it’s people are always a delight. Newport is at its best in the fall, thinner crowds, better service in the restaurants. Easy walk to our favorite food and drink.

Wanted easier access to land than from dinghy for a week after getting total hip replacement. This was just what we needed with the one caveat that, like every marina in Newport, it is outrageously expensive. No shower or toilet due covid. Dockmaster was great.

Very nice service.

by aileenmcahill on Jul 27, 2020
Marina was fine and staff great, but the three loud bars with bands blaring music and drunks kept us awake until all hours

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Clean facilities.

Service was great. Bathrooms are ok, not great. The only reason it’s not a 5 is because it’s kind of a party scene here. Thumping music all night long at a dance club next to the dock. The best part was there was space when Newport was otherwise full.

The bathrooms need to be better maintained and stocked with paper supplies such as paper towels. Staff was great and very helpful and accommodating.

Dock hands were great. A little interesting getting into their basin, but we had good guidance over the radio. Dock hands were very helpful with tie up, power, water, etc. Reviews from 2017 and 2018 mentioned that the restrooms needed updating. I did not see any mention in 2019 reviews so I was hoping that was taken care of. Sadly, the restrooms/showers are not up to Newport standards, or even what I would expect from any marina. Also, the restrooms should be checked a few times each day to ensure that supplies do not run out. Updating the restrooms would seem to be a good winter project. It would move this review to 5 stars. Other reviews mentioned the night club (The Dock), and yes it is loud, but it was not a problem for us as we were at the far end of the marina. We did have lunch there and were pleased. The marina is at the south end of downtown and we were very pleased with the shops and restaurants in the immediate area. Sunday were went up to the Banister Warf area which was packed with tourists. If you are looking to relax, this is a good area.

This marina is a hidden gem in Newport. Great location, good restaurant, hot night spot and an outstanding crew that is friendly and efficient.

by sscalley on Jul 05, 2019
Very loud music till 1:00 am. Very nice and friendly staff but very loud night club on premise. Beware if you want to sleep before 1:00 am.

by happyourazimut on Jun 09, 2019
This is our third time here and we love the spot.

by nlcbrutzman on Oct 09, 2018
Great experience staying at West Wind. Everyone who works there is great. Very much enjoyed our time there.

by denisec on Oct 09, 2018
It was excellent. The dock staff are so helpful and friendly. We had an excellent on the side of our friends as promised.

by handsailor on Sep 24, 2018
With over thirty thousand miles at sea under my belt I will say that weatwind marinas bathroom facilities are the worst I have ever seen. They are like an El savadoran prison. When you pay the same as the other marinas in Newport you expect clean and modern showers. They are cinderblock dirty walls, torn curtains and moldy and dirty. I will never go back here. If you are fine with dirty showers and bathrooms and loud music from the bar this is the place for you.

by ddonald0318 on Jul 08, 2018
Great Stay. Helpful dock hands. Great Music @ The Deck. Facilities clean

by johnmoriarty on Sep 24, 2017
Now my first choice when coming to Newport.

by superwa on Sep 17, 2017
Friendly knowledgeable staff. Great location and restaurant next door. Could use a renovation of bathrooms and showers. Nice place.

by nxavierm on Aug 15, 2017
Good slips, nice protected area. Little funny where the pedestals were (up high off the floating dock on the boardwalk behind), but not an issue. People were very nice. Facilities were fine, but could use some sprucing up. Be aware it's literally right next to a club and a bar. Wasn't loud on Thursday night, but I assume it would be loud Fri/Sat. Would stay again.

by jfatulli on Aug 11, 2017
Worked out perfectly! Thank you!

by marcsil1 on Jul 31, 2017
Horrible! Dock master was unprofessional and not very pleasant. Glad we left after only one day. Bathrooms filthy, marina needs to be updated. Will. Never go back

by captaingus on Jul 29, 2017
The dockmaster was rude and unprofessional. Would NEVER go back.

by aequitas on Jul 23, 2017
The marina staff were very helpful and courteous. The only negative was the loud music at the adjacent nightclub.

by nelli on Jul 21, 2017
Great, West wind is such a pleasant change from the other Newport Marinas. The staff is so friendly and accommodating,very private location tucked away off the main Thames street area, very relaxing.

by dtishler on Jul 08, 2017
marina staff was very helpful, even on a busy weekend. music can be a bit loud but ended promptly at 1am. excellent power and water. great view and location in town.

by adelboat on Jun 19, 2017
Staff was friendly and accommodating - got a great slip. Location on lower Thames Street is perfect for many shops, restaurants, etc. Some issues: bathrooms need some renovations; marina is located on same property as a restaurant and bar, which were quite loud, until late.
