Felt like home!

April 2014

Best value and service you will ever find in a hotel! My wife and I travel a lot for work, but stayed in for vacation. We didn't want to leave because unlike most hotels, this one felt like home. When we return to the West Coast we will stay here and send all of our friends.

Never had such excellent service

April 2014

This is a hidden gem that I'll be returning to for years to come. Got in late (midnight) and was treated to their kitchen for a late night snack. Have stayed at Bay Shores twice this week making arrangements for and attending a funeral. Never have had such excellent service at any of my many stays at other hotels in the O.C. and L.A. areas.

Turn down service - that's rare!

Felton, CA - April 2014

Turn down service! That's rare anywhere these days! After a delicious dinner at the Dock, I came home to relaxing music and chocolates, after passing thru the lobby with chocolate chip aroma! People, it does not get better than this!

Perfect Casual Beach Place

Chicago, IL - April 2014

This hotel was exactly what we needed. Our kind of southern California. No fuss, warm people, laid back breakfast, pleasant clean room, easy parking, and best of all, walk across the street to the beautiful beach. No reason to ask for more when hanging out for visiting our relatives. In fact, it had the feel of a bonus romantic adventure.

Looking forward to coming back

April 2014

Your Hotel is always one of our favorites. This was no exception. Wonderful. Look forward to coming back next year!

Third Stay at Bay Shores!

April 2014

We had another great week at the Bay Shores Inn. The staff is wonderfully helpful and pleasant. We love having breakfast on the roof every morning. The room was terrific, and the location can't be beat. This was our third stay at the Bay Shores and we are already looking forward to our next trip.


April 2014

I will definitely be back, I had the most amazing stay here. The location is perfect, the views are breathtaking, service was great, and the rooms were so clean and adorable. The service like I said was amazing! I will tell everyone I know to stay here when traveling to Newport Beach!

Wonderful Hotel that feels like a B&B

Salem, MA - April 2014

Outstanding hotel that feels like a bed and breakfest..welcome note on bed, return postcard thanking us for staying; fruit in room, great breakfast selection, two free bottles of water in fridge, wonderful hosts, Ralph and Warren...call you by name, are very helpful rec places to visit. The rooms were perfect and waterviews (I think) from all.


April 2014

Great spot near the beach and beach towels and chairs on hand to take down free of charge, fantastic staff, very welcoming - fresh cookies on arrival!!! nice roof terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast. Stayed for a few nights on a road trip down the coast and was the best hotel by far - would def go back - 100% recommended!!

"Cute and Cozy"

April 2014

I stayed here strictly based on reviews while I was traveling to Newport Beach for business. The location can't be beat. I think the hotel is cute and cozy {very vintage} and the staff goes above and beyond. It was a nice change of pace from the typical corporate hotels! The personal touch {postcards rec'd after my stay} really make this place stand out. Can't wait to come back!
