We booked this hotel 30 minutes before we got there, we had a short wait to get to our room. The rooms were beautiful and clean! And the view was great! Everything from the beach to the pool and all the shopping with in walking distance was wonderful. Could not beat the price either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel and staff were great. Food at the hotel was disappointing for breakfast though. The hotel is right on the water and near stores and restaurants and a supermarket. Only complaint is they ran out of towels for the beach twice during our stay. Also, if you are interested in going to south beach and don't have a car it is either a $30 can ride […] or 35 minute bus drive. Great staff, room was great and great price!

"Newport Beachside hotel is an illusion"
All the money has spent on the outside appearance and hotel lobby. It has all the bells and whistles, flat screen tv , glass mirrors, apa, and bar/restaurant. The rooom was spacious however the dresser and cabinet were dirty light oak color and they have not been cleaned in sometime. The sofa was low too the floor and felt scratchy..the jet tub was […] too high I was not impressed... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was on a Thursday night. We were at the hotel for both Thursday and Friday and enjoyed the private beach access, the pier, the bar by the pier, and the breakfast buffet. We we also able to grab some sandwiches and drinks from the hotel lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice beach and good location. Front desk was friendly, Sophie and BillyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will not stay here again anytime"
We checked in about 3 am in the night. The receptionist was not even smiling. Not rude but not welcoming either..and after checking. Out figured out about $40 extra that I have to pay..so I paid 150 dollar for 6 hours of sleep...which is not at all cost effectiveGenuine Expedia guest review
"was hoping to give an excellent review but..."
After reading almost all of the reviews for Newport, I was hoping that I would be able to write an unequivocal excellent review. Unfortunately, this is not the case; the mediocre reviews of this hotel are accurate. The best experience of my stay was checking out when Carla, the only marketing sharp staff member with whom I had contact, did her best […] to give me a parting good impression of the hotel. Otherwise, the staff is less than friendly and helpful, especially the front desk staff upon check in. Many areas of the hotel need repainting and recarpeting. The housekeeper on my floor was slightly bizarre: I know that Jesus loves me, but I do not need her to tell me that! Just clean my room on time and give me a new shampoo instead of taking the half used one and not replacing it. And, housekeeper, if I do not answer the phone, do not then bang repeatedly on the door until I talked to you. The drinks from the outside bar are watered down. While the water in the tube worked, my friend and I could not and never did figure out how to make the shower work. And, no, as I told Carla upon check out, I did not report it because I did not want to deal with the hotel staff. The in room movie system was down, but guest services did not return my telephone call to advise me of that. Newport is too much like an airlines with all the extra charges, notably the room safe, the $15 charge to print a boarding pass (which, of course, I did not print), the shocking parking charge Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is kid friendly. Meals are ok. Pool is good. Beach area is good although on my stay water was rough at times but did settle down later in the week.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was very good experience with this hotel Staff was very friendy and proffesionalGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything you need."
Its a nice hotel and I will be happy to stay here again. But you pay for everything like Umbrellas at beach and hut on the beach. The rooms are big and comfy. I like it and its a nice hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
My experience : Rooms 836 old and broken cabinets. Cigarette smell and dirty rugs. It's a shame because the beach is divine and especially if you're family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay for a bargain!"
Not all of the rooms have been upgraded/modernized and containing a flat wall HD television. So ask for a upgraded room at time of reservation and at check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have been to Miami 4 time we stayed in court yard marriott all the time this time we decided to stay at newport resort our stay was great from manager to the cleaning staff great service excellent room beautiful beach setting over all we will rcomend every one to stay there very reasonable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price in this area"
First the negatives are the elevator and the shower. The elevator needs updating as the noises make you feel like the elevator may get stuck at anytime. Also, too many people and not enough elevators. We could not get the shower to hot and was mostly cold to warm. The positives are the friendly and helpful staff, always polite and willing to help. The […] beach is right there and the pool an adequate size. They gave us extra pillows and towels when we requested them. Would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Friendly family atmosphere. No frills, just comfortable and safe area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't Do It! Pay a little more and enjoy your trip"
Restaurant- Diners who arrived 25-30 mins. after I did were being served before me. I was told the "printer" was down and "somehow" the kitchen never got my order. My Server never questioned what happened to my order either. Spa-Very crowded. Facilities not clean. Not enough lockers, I had to carry my belongings from room to room. This hotel takes gratuities […] up front and automatically adds them to your bill. Hotel Non-Smoking Policy- This hotel advertises itself as a Non Smoking property-They allow smoking in common areas, at the pool and at the Pool Bar. If you leave your balcony door open you will quickly find hotel guests are smoking on their balconies and the smoke will come into your room-to the point that I was surrounded by smokers with one exception-the party that called hotel and accused me of smoking in my room; not once but twice! They add a $200.00 "purification" charge to your bill. I was put in the position of having to prove it wasn't me, including allowing hotel personnel come into my room uninvited while I had the "Do Not Disturb" sign on my door handle. I went to the Front Desk Manager to ensure I was NOT being charged the $200.00 fee-she proceeded to tell me that they did find the offending party and had escorted them off of the property. She thought this would make me happy. I asked why I wasn't informed and why wasn't I given an apology? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what i expected"
I was there the weekend of Memorial day, maybe that is why but it was so packed and loud. They didn't have the room we booked they had to offer us a "better on" which ended up being smaller.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Great beach"
The room was great. Very comfortable and big. Nice bathroom beach very clean with pier next to it. Pricy food and drinks which have gratuity built inGenuine Expedia guest review
"For the money it was great"
For the price a great stay. Right on the beach. Plus a pool and a beachside bar (that very odd hours but still there). Access to the pier and another bar/restaurant on the pier. Neighborhood was great. Rooms were dated and could use some repair (old tube TV set and a mirrored enclosure around the bed) and the room cleaning was less than desirable. Cleaning […] staff were pretty rude as well. But all in all and again for the price. Nice stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Newport Beachside Hotel"
The hotel was beautiful and the beach was also nice but there are too many hidden fees. When we arrived at the hotel to check in, we were charged an additional $100 which was a "courtesy fee" they said. Then when we checked out at the end of our stay we were charged an additional $90 and they did not tell us what that charge was for. If we had known […] about all these extra charges, we would not have booked this hotel. Because of this, my family will not be staying in this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel experience except for check-in"
Good hotel experience, decent place I thought, but the slow check-in process needs to be improved!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
Much better than expected. It was a short stay but, the hotel was perfect. The kids enjoyed the pools and the beach. My limited contact with the staff was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice resort, rooms small, bar rocked and im 67"
60.00 shuttle ride from airport to resort. 60.00 shuttle to port of miami. Had a great experience. No breakfast included. Ended up priceyGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall, it is ok. Nice beach is just behind the hotel. The only problem is a little far to travel to other places.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice beach, hotel very old they don't update,"
my room was unable available had to stay in another room for the first night, old tv, bathroom tub didn't work as good water didn't go down fast was accumulating, hotel needs to update, the only thing nice was the beach, cause, while I was dear, I didn't even see anyone asking guest to get out of the pool to check any levels of the proper staff a pools […] needs, pool not clean, staff also messed my reservation.

"REALLY WORTH WHILE"
At first, I was very reluctant to book this hotel based on negative reviews on both yelp and hotels' website. But for the incredible price, I decided to give it a shot and try it. I don't regret it one bit!! For a great price, you get a beautiful resort style hotel that feels like a 4 star with great amenities and offering! LOVED the location, private […] beach, free access to the pier, parking choices, surrounding places to eat, service, room etc... We booked a city view and got a partial ocean view room that was renovated, spacious and beautiful! The only con I can think of is the type of customers the hotel can get can be a little ghetto and rowdy, but that's not the hotel's fault and is to be expected with the price. Didn't bother us too much though. Will book again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Dated Hotel Close to the Beach"
This hotel is not bad but it is not good either. My family and I had a great holiday and the stay at this hotel overall was OK. First of all. It is quite far from MIA and so it costs about $60 in a cab to get there. The hotel backs onto a nice beach (best thing about this hotel) and has 2 pools. A small one for kids and a larger one for adults. However, […] both needed to be cleaner. The hotel in general is very outdated. I felt like I was stuck in the eighties all week. Everything at the hotel which can be purchased is overpriced. The elevators are rubbish. Too small so they are often already packed by the time they reach your floor so you end up taking the stairs. There are no coffee/tea making facilities in any of the rooms so you have to purchase them every morning downstairs in the lobby. I went to book a trip to the Everglades which should have cost about $165 dollars for myself, wife and child and the concierge said I could have it for free. All I had to do was go and watch a timeshare sales pitch which should last no longer than 90 minutes. It took over 150 minutes but I did get the trip for free. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Place of hotel is very good. Lobby is nice."
Staff did not refill shampoo every day, but they were very friendly. We finished our reservation 4 months in advance and paid for Ocean View room, but when we arrived, there were no available and we had to move next day. Food in restaurant (complimentory brakfast) was poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was nice but couple off problems"

"Vacation in Miami"
The hotel upgraded our room upon request at no extra charge. The pool is warm, the beach is in your "back yard" and the staff is helpful. I do thibk they need more elevators though. During check out and check in times, it is nearly impossible to catch an elevator with any space. Parking is available across the street or valet and it's an affordable […] hotel to be right on the beach. If you want luxury, then I'd say go a few doors dowb to Trump, but if you want a decent vacation with few to no hassles, Newport Beachside is where to go. It was my second time staying and I would return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Favorite Hotel in Miami"
I've been here twice and booked a room with a city view (not by choice) but I've gotten rooms with an ocean view both times. The front desk agent from Costa Rica is really friendly and has great tips like where to eat locally. Rooms are clean and spacious. I got a room on the top floor with a living area and 2 tvs, bathtub with jets and mini bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The real scoop !"
So I booked this room with a deal from hotels.com. THEN i read the reviews. Oh NO. I get there and the valet guy says "checking in ?", I said not sure yet based on negative recent reviews. He was aware and didn't try and make excuses. He acknowledged the issue. Got to the front desk and told the desk clerk my same concerns. He also agreed and explained […] the following. The property has been renovating ALL the rooms. 2 floors left to go. Its unfortunate that some people had to be put in "older" rooms. But in my opinion the "new" rooms are 5 star !!!! AND so is this property !!! What really impressed me was the integrity of the staff to admit they were going through a transition for the better. This is a great location right on the beach. Close walking distance to anything you need. If you get a chance to stay here, I believe you will be MORE than satisfied. I have paid double to stay at resorts not even close to equal to Newport Beachside ! Sincerely, an experienced traveler. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel On Miami Beach (Sunny Islands)"
Newport is a classic for the familly. We stayed already 6 times in this hotel because there is a very good balance between cost and benefits. Hotel is close to everything, nice beach, nice environment, good acess to the main routes and to shopping areas, nice staff too.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Had it's own beach and a beautiful broad walk"
The staff was very helpful , only concern was the silly 90 min tour of the hotel for a prize I didn't qualify for ... Don't waste your time with that . Hotel was 25 min drive to south beach , wasn't bad . Self parking was very helpful .Genuine Expedia guest review

"Best things are the pool area and the restaurant"
Stick with the city view rooms as the partial beach view is not worth it since the rest of the view is a wall of an adjacent residential building. I upgraded only to have to downgrade. I was not aware when i booked that this was also part of a timeshare. I was annoyed to be contacted several times to take an hour and a half of my vacation time to be […] toured on a place that wasn't really taking care of us. While the room i eventually got was nice i had to contact maintenance to fix a leaking air conditioner system (stepping on to wet carpet is not a fun surprise) and that took sometime. Where is the WIFI? The Aveda Spa is nice but it was lacking polish. I felt terrible for the woman at the front desk who had to sit near what is suppose to be a relaxing waterfall effect but in reality was a noisy nuisance. The specials offered by the hotel were more expensive than coupons offered online. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place except parking"
I think all beachfront motels in this area have parking difficulties. You pay extra and have to park across a busy street. Or pay even more for valet. Other than that, really nice place on the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
