We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. The staff was very friendly and our room was clean and spacious.
Some of the highlights were:
-the delicious lemon and chocolate chip cookies!
-the location is only a block away from the beach and even closer to the bay
-continental breakfast with lots of options, plus coffee available throughout the day
-rooftop deck with a great view
-use of the computer in the lobby to print out boarding passes/directions
Wish we could have stayed longer!

Warren is an awesome host!
What a hidden gem this place is, didn't think we would find a place like this in America. This place says its a Hotel but the high level of personal interaction and general atmosphere makes it feel more like staying at a 5 Star B&B. The service is amazing, Ralph and the rest of the staff were very helpful and friendly. The attention to detail is very high particularly in the rooms where they have thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable.
We stayed as a mixed group for a conference in Anaheim seeking a non-business style hotel. Loved the convenience for walk to beach and dining. Easy access for quick trip to Fashion Island after work. Staff was delightful and helpful. Will definitely return if in the area. Fresh cookies a bonus!!
Stayed three nights there - this last weekend.. Very nice and clean with friendly staff. Close to Beach (altho that wasn't why we were there). Beds and pillows very comfortable. House cleaning staff was very nice and dia grnd job on cleaning the room. Continental breakfast (hard boiled eggs, coffee, juice, toast, bagels, english muffins, butter and jam) was very fresh.
It's just like everyone mentions great, friendly staff who value their guests. Beautiful, clean rooms that are a step from your cookie cutter hotels. Cookies are great, the food delicious, walking distance to both beaches. We were 100% satisfied and are planning on staying there during our next visit this summer
We had a wonderful time at the Bay Shores Penisula Hotel in December 2012 and we later even returned in the beginning of January after visiting Vegas.
The reception is so friendly, the breakfast is good and you even get a fresh copy of the L.A. Times delivered to your doorstep every morning!
There are freshly baked cookies in the lobby every afternoon and if it happens to rain you can grab a couple of movies from the lobby and cozy up in your room.
The location is also fantastic, right by the beach and close to restaurants!
We were a mixed group, some attending a conference and some along for the ride. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. The proximity to the beach and restaurants was welcome to avoid driving at the end of the day. Returning to fresh baked cookies, free wifi, parking, and breakfast really topped off the deal. The rooftop terrace is a lovely place to enjoy breakfast or just a moment of sun and quiet. Definitely a place to remember when back in the area.
I have stayed at this hotel six times over the past several years and just booked my next trip for next month. I cannot say enough about it. Very clean, wonderful staff and fresh baked cookies every afternoon. Directly across the street from the beach, great restaurants and the pier. You owe it to yourself to try it, you will not be disappointed
We really enjoyed our time at this hotel. It is in a beautiful location, right across from the beach (although no views except from the rooftop terrace.) We stayed in Suite 100, which was nice and spacious, with a king, queen, and and queen sofabed, and the best part, 1-1/2 bathrooms. Nice 50" TV (or thereabout!) and the DVD library adds a nice touch. Continental breakfast is plentiful, and the afternoon cookies are a nice touch. We were given plenty of bath towels (8 sets!) so we were never short, and the small fridge is great, along with the coffeemaker and microwave.
