Best Place to Stay in Newport Beach

Los Angeles, CA - August 2014

I have stayed at the Bay Shores Penninsula Hotel several times now, first on business and then recently on personal travel and I am always impressed by the stellar service and the quaint charm this 25 room hotel provides its guests. On my most recent trip the staff was kind enough to honor our request for a beachview room and was always extremely personable and attentive to our every need.

Best Place on the Boulevard!

Australia - August 2014

We booked this place on a trip from Australia and we were so happy with our choice! Staff were amazingly friendly, breakfast included and the rooms were really comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for something with a bit of old world charm that's different from every other hotel you stay in.

Would definitely stay here again

Chesterfield - August 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. We had a warm welcome and show around. The room was available to us straight away.

Little Charmer

Southern California - August 2014

Mom and I did a "bucket list" two day trip to Newport, shopping all day one day at South Coast Plaza and Crystal Court, stayed at the Bay Shores that night and shopped Fashion Island the next day. A friend warned me away from the peninsula this time of year due to " a lot of partying".

Warm, Friendly Staff

July 2014

Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel was very nice. It's not a "chain", it's a quaint small hotel with all the basics; plus a warm and friendly staff, fresh baked yummy cookies in the afternoon, beach access right across the street, and a nice roof terrace that is perfect for starting your day enjoying fresh fruit, bagels and coffee that are provided as part of your stay.

Favorite Place to Stay

Ontario, CA - July 2014

Favorite place to stay when I'm in the area. Rooms are clean, hotel is in a great location close to both the Newport and Balboa piers. Food and drink are just a short stroll away in a beautiful setting regardless of your desired choice. All you need for a day at the beach is at your disposal and the staff is always there to give you options - great suggestions and recommendations for dinner and fun.

VERY Friendly Staff

West Covina, CA - July 2014

This place is in walking distant to many fun things and the beach & bay. Start your morning with a free breakfast.

First Rate Operation

Santa Monica, CA - July 2014

A first rate operation with authentic local color--non corporate and familiar in tone.  So glad to find this place.  Can't overuse the terms "clean" and "charming," or "unrehearsed friendliness."  (One pays a bit of a premium for these and well worth it.) 

We'll be back next summer!

Phoenix, AZ - July 2014

We had a wonderful stay! Perfect accommodations and location. Loved how helpful and friendly the staff was. We'll be back next summer!


Amazing Place!

UK - July 2014

Lovely rooms with great toiletries, safety deposit box, fridge and wifi. The staff were friendly and helpful, free hire of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boggie boards and beach toys was great. Cookies in reception each afternoon was definitely a highlight for me! Also a vast selection of DVD's in reception for free hire was great.
