I grew up in Newport Beach and enjoy returning for my high school reunions. The last three visits we have stayed at the BayShores Peninsula Hotel and it has been great each time. This is not a luxury hotel but a small boutique hotel, with nicely-decorated surf-themed rooms and a very friendly staff. The free breakfast is light but all you need, and some food is available all day ( they put fresh-baked cookies out in the afternoon). The rooms are stocked with fresh fruit and free water in the fridge. They also provide beach equipment---towels, boogie boards, etc.) and we make good use of that.
My wife and I tried another little inn in Newport Beach one time and then we came across Bayshores while riding our bikes around. The staff was so greatful to show us a room, and thats all it took, we've been staying there for the last 4 years. Location is awesome, staff is awesome, friendly and very helpful. Great "FREE" breakfast in lobby every day. OH YA -- the cookies in the afternoon, MMMMM. Great location to the bars and restuarants by the pier. ( walking distance ) Rooftop is great to hang out and unwind with loved one and bottle of wine. This is our 5star hotel by far.
What a fantastic find!! I was a little nervous about the Bay Shore hotel as we typically stay in 4-5 star hotels but our time at Bay Shores was fabulous. It is very California cool with fantastic ocean/Cali decor. There is a free breakfast every morning and the staff is fantastic. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!!
Enjoyed a fantastic staycation with my 3 little ones. This really exceeded my expectations! The location was perfect. The staff did everything to make us feel comfortable and feel welcome.They have all the beach equipment so we didn't need to drag anything with us.The continental breakfast was not the average they have hot sandwiches, fresh fruit, croissants, yogurt, hot and cold cereal and more.The fresh cookies every afternoon is also a sweet touch along with a wide celection of movies was a great way to relax after a long day at the beach.This was by far the best hotel stay we've ever had.
This is an older building, but don’t let that scare you away. It is highly maintained and clean. The location is only one block from the ocean and one block from the bay. The patio on top of the building gives a great view of both. Thankfully it is located just a bit past the noisier areas of town. There is no nickel and diming here. Beach towels and beach toys are ready for you to use. The newspaper is placed in from of your door each morning. If you need to wash something, they provide the soap. Breakfast had a nice variety of the things you would expect. This is a class operation
We stayed two nights at this throw back in time. It may not be much to look at on the outside, but the quality of service and accommodation take a back seat to no place. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Warren and another gentleman, we were treated like long lost kin. The entire staff was warm, efficient and made our stay one to remember. The 3 p.m. cookies didn't hurt either, nor did the rooftop deck.
Right from the minute you walk in the door you are made to feel right at home. It's no wonder this little gem has won some great awards. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. It's an easy walk to the town center and only 75 steps to the beach. The best part is all the extras. Free to guest are boogie boards, bikes, all sorts of beach toys, towels you name it they'll have it. Breakfast is great too and the cookies at 3 are a nice touch. The staff are great too. Warren even sent us a thank you note for staying. Now that's what I call service.
Just the cutest place ever. The staff is wonderful and accomodating. The night front desk guy is as good as it gets when it comes to service. Although somewhat dated when it comes to the rooms the location and cuteness of the place overwhelms you. You can walk to restaruants and the beach in 5 minutes. Speaking of restaurants the best clam chowder i have ever eaten is 2 minutes away at the crab house restaurant down the street. If you want small and quaint this is your place.
We love this place! First of all, this adorable small hotel has everything you need for the beach, at no extra charge. Beach umbrellas, chairs, towels, boogie boards, frisbees and sand toys are all available for you to use. What a deal and a convenience, for those of us that fly into town with only our clothes!
Our room was small but freshly decorated and the bathroom seemed to be recently remodeled.
There was everything we needed, coffee maker, mini fridge, a safe, wifi, air-condition, flat screen tv (although we never used it).
What a great place. The owner has added these little touches everywhere that just make you feel welcome.You're a block away from the beach, there are free chairs, boogie boards , and umbrellas for guests to use if needed. There was a relaxation CD in the CD player in my room. There was a newspaper delivered in the AM , there are fresh cookies baked in the lobby in the afternoon. Breakfast is included. Restaurants are 5 minutes away. The rooms are cozy.The staff is very friendly and accomodating. There is also free Wi-Fi .
