Dock master and dock hands were great but loud band noise until 1:00AM was ridiculous. Ask if the band is playing. Before you reserve.
Marina Response:
Rob, as the Marina Manager here at West Wind, I sincerely apologize for the loud music that kept you up at night from the neighboring property. Upon arrival, we made sure to move you to the best slip available to reduce the potential disturbance as much as possible. Unfortunately, neither I nor anyone at the Marina can control the noise from next door. This is an unavoidable aspect of booking a Marina in downtown Newport, especially during a busy weekend in the summer. I can assure you that if you were to visit during a quieter weekend or even on a weekday, our marina would have been more suitable for your needs. I would absolutely love the opportunity to serve your beautiful boat again if you give us another chance. However, if you plan to stay in Newport again (not with us), I would not recommend any marinas on the main strip if loud music is a dealbreaker for you. We appreciate the feedback and any recommendations that you may have for me or my staff. You have my number, so feel free to reach out to me at any time. You know I will do what I can to make things right for you! Safe Travels & Happy Father's Day! Christian

Staff was great. Showers were not hot
Marina Response:
We are so sorry about the hot water. This issue has been resolved now and two new units were installed today. We had been waiting on parts which took longer than expected and were limping by with one water heater which seems to have not done the job on this busy weekend. Again sorry about that!

Pros: great location, great Dockmaster Cons: not fancy, facilities just ok, be aware of shallows just outside marina

Our stay at West Wind Marina in Newport couldn't have been better. Right off the bat Kayla and the girls got us into our slip with ease. Tied us up perfectly. It's in a great location. In the midst of great dining, shopping anything you need. 👍👍

by Melissa G. on Jul 22, 2023
Thank you! We couldn't have found safe harbor in a better place. Thank you Kayla for your professional courtesy and kindness. Clean ample facilities, secure floating dockage, well protected. Easy walk in to town, enjoyed some delicious Thai food and re-provisioned. Highly recommend, added bonus a puppy fix with Mr. Trip on staff labradoodle.
Marina Response:
This review just made my day!! It was my pleasure. Thank you so much. Safe travels!

Had such a nice time staying here that we extended our stay from 3 to 5 nights. Located just passed the very busy section of town, and convenient to everything. Kayla the dockmaster and her team were amazing. Definitely will stay here again.

Caught the last two days of a pre-season rate deal which made an appropriate cost / value for this dock. Also we arrived after Memorial Day weekend so dockmaster & staff were off for the day, which they did tell us about ahead of time and we are ok docking ourselves. We stayed during the week, so the adjacent bars & disco were deserted and we didn’t experience any of the noise or party-bar associated issues others have mentioned. The bathrooms and showers are roomy and very clean. However there was no hot water so the shower experience was disappointing. Docks are at the far south of the Marina District but everything was walkable within a mile or so and we enjoyed poking about the other wharves. If we had paid full price we would have been dissatisfied because of the lack of amenities, hot showers and the rough condition of the docks themselves. However, for Newport, it was a good price for dock space.
Marina Response:
Laurie, I'm so sorry to hear about the lack of hot water! We had no idea that the hot water tank malfunctioned. I would have had the broken coupler replaced immediately. I wish I had had the chance to rectify that while you were here. 8/20/23: Update: The water heaters have been replaced.

First time here. Marina staff, Kayla, was excellent. Night club music way too loud. Drunk obnoxious people in boat next to me ridiculous. Now understand why marina has a bad reputation.

by Susan C. - Verified user on Sep 26, 2022
Kayla is always very helpful, we once again had a great stay. We even took our dinghy over to Goat Island for dinner. Great spot to dock and easy access to all of Newport.

by Brett H. - Verified user on Aug 29, 2022
Dock staff was great and helped us in to a tight berth with great skill. Good location too. Live music to serenade us to sleep only a few feet away at the nightclub.

First, I want to acknowledge that the staff is very good at West Wind Marina. However, this marina needs upgrading in order to justify $7 per foot, even for Newport. i was here about three years ago and very little has changed for the better. The docks had perhaps 2% of the decking replaced but really needs 100% replacement. The bathrooms really need to be redone. We were prepared to hear music from the club until closing time but there were two sources of music, one from the club and one from the bar and grill that competed. The worst was the private party on one of the big yachts (Reset) that may be a seasonal tenant. They took over when the club closed with some really obnoxious music. It required my going over at 2:45 AM to get some relief and that was not really satisfactory until 3:00 AM. The security is good here considering the night club and the bar and grill on the property. The location is good. It is not far from the heart of Newport.

Staff was wonderful, helpful docking! However, there is a dance/disco club that starts at 9pm and goes until 1am! Our slip was sitting right in front! Loud is not enough to describe the decibels! Other reviews said loud this is beyond loud, can’t sleep loud in cabin with air conditioner on and tv at full volume! There is a restaurant right next to the dance/disco club and they have music also which plays simultaneously until restaurant closes!
