We had first stayed at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel in '08 and when we arrived 2/26/14 we were hoping that it was as nice as we remembered. It was even better! The desk manager "Ralph" was still there with his welcoming smile and cookies! Our room was beautiful, immaculately clean and well appointed right down to the soothing CD lulling us to sleep. Breakfast was even better than we remembered.
Bay Shores is an awesome little hotel right across the street from the beach and boardwalk. We love this place. They offer you warm chocolate chip cookies when you check in, and a great breakfast selection is also included. Once you check in, there is no need to drive anywhere. Everything you need is within walking distance.
We stayed two nights here as part of a road trip along the pacific coast - we had room 307 - the management have made a huge effort to accommodate guests' needs and it makes for a comfortable stay. The bed was good/ everything was spotlessly clean, breakfast perfectly adequate with cereals/pastries/toast/yoghurts/juice etc.
Loved the hotel. Immediately felt welcomed and during our check-in. The very clean room we stayed in for two nights had a single queen bed which was sufficient. We weren't planning on spending much time in the room. But the room was nice with water and fruit on the tables waiting for us. Newspapers supplied daily, continental breakfast was very good with a huge selection to choose from.
This hotel is such a gem! Wish they would open a twin in Malibu. We were impressed the minute we set foot into the welcoming lobby. Front desk person was so nice and helpful. Restaurant recommendations were exactly what we were seeking. We were delighted with our magnificent view and our spacious suite was so comfortable. The suite had everything imaginable to insure a great stay.
We just stayed 2 nights in a room with 2 queen beds. Room was spacious and clean. Loved the mom and pop feel. Staff was warm and welcoming. The complementary continental breakfast was a great value, plenty to choose from to start your day. Loved the complementary fruit and water bottles in room. Our room also had a refrigerator which was great. They offer free beach items to use, towels, chairs, etc.
Just wanted to say thanks for the warm welcome and such a great relaxed atmosphere that made my business trip so enjoyable.
Really lovely hotel, a stones throw from the beach. A very homely, cosy, quality hotel with a lovely laid back atmosphere. We were a party of 6 .. Irish and Aussie ... Our bedrooms were really comfortable with lovely fluffy towels, Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries, and flat screen tv. Breakfast was an informal buffet style arrangement which suited us really well. Nice rooftop sun deck with good views.
This hotel is an incredible find only one block from the Newport Beach boardwalk and the sand. My wife accompanied me on a business trip so we decided to stay at the beach. The Bay Shores Peninsula is a wonderful family-owned beach hotel. Warren, Ralph and team are awesome and will do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. I went to work during the day and my wife was all over Newport Beach.
Comfortable and the great ambiance of traditional California beach town. Great surfing art and wooden models of old Woodies with surf boards on top array the small lobby. Not big or luxurious but customer service is fantastic.. Staff are friendly, helpful and well informed. I much prefer this to a sterile chain hotel. Close to everything in Newport Beach. A great get away
