I booked this hotel after reading other reviews and it lived up to the expectations. Very helpful & friendly staff, clean & well appointed rooms, excellent location to the beach and restaurants, free beach chairs & toys, free breakfast, free parking and best of all is the wonderful customer service (greeting card on bed, turn down at night & ohhh those cookies). I would definitely stay and recommend here again. We enjoy smaller hotel venues instead of the mega chains and this one fits the bill.
As with other reviewers we had a great stay at the hotel, and after having stayed at a 4 Diamond hotel in San Diego before our visit here were a bit apprehensive.
Location is excellent - across the beach and bay. Free car parking. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
Great buffet breakfast to start the day and we took ours on the sundeck on the 4th floor, with views of both the ocean and bay.
A short walk to Newport pier and restuarants and bar - the car did move for the 3 days of our stay.
Well to start with we really enjoyed staying at the Bay Shores Peninsula hotel. Others have said so many good things so it’s hard to come up with something different.
Just about everything. Perfect location between beachs.. Staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. They provided towels, chairs & umbrellas for the beach, as well as boogie boards. Free wifi .. I could go on..”
Very impressed with this Hotel! My wife and I had a weekend get away here in late September and got an excellent rate though I would have been happy to pay more because this place was that good. It is an older hotel, but the rooms are very clean, good beds and a powerful massaging shower. Service was excellent and the entire staff is very very friendly. They seem to really take pride in their work and this hotel.
I stayed at the hotel with my wife for our honeymoon almost a year ago. We loved the place soooooo much that we still visit their website and see the pictures. The location was great, you can just walk to the beach. The staff is great and the breakfast is yummie. They also give out boards to use for surfing etc.
We will come back, this is a promise to the hotel! We cant wait to see you guys again.
The location is great, accommodations are great, room was clean quiet and very comfortable. We came here based off of other reviews and were not disappointed, the price here was very reasonable for Newport. We usually go to Newport a couple of times a year and we will definitely stay here again.
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!!
