We had such a great experience at this hotel that we were planning our next trip while we were still there. Everyone was so friendly. We were on the 3rd floor in a corner room (#304) and had a great view of the ocean and bay. The afternoon cookies really hit the spot after riding our bikes on the boardwalk. We also enjoyed the roof deck in the evening with a glass of wine. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family.
Warren greeted us with a big smile and friend "Hello". We felt ourselves unwind right then, after the long drive to the coast. He gave us a tour and we loved it all. The location is a few minutes from the beach, fewer minutes to the harbor, a short walk to good (and great) restaurants, shopping, and the pier. We never drove our car the entire four days. Just walked everywhere. The room was decorated in a sunny beach style, which was great. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and neat. The pillows were a bit odd.
Great hotel! The rooms were clean and nice, great and friendly service, nice terrace where you can have breakfast and enjoy the evening. They also have complimentary beach equipment. Great location, not far from a nice beach. Delicious complimentary cranberry cookies. Awesome.
So pleasantly surprised! Super clean, super friendly! Great breakfast! Loved the decor, so perfect for a beach-town. It reminded me of your favourite auntie's house, so welcoming and wonderful. Best feature though is its proximity to the beach! Literally across the street. Stay here, you won't regret it!!
Back again with some additional family members. Great as usual and excellent weather for mid February. All staff friendy as usual and a big thanks to Lisa and Ralph who assited us with a couple of problems we had. They asked and listened to our concerns and addressed them more than satifactorily, A+. Family members had not been here before and yes they too would come back, as will we.
...a small hotel that represents good value and fantastic service. We had planned to stay there for two days at the beginning of our holiday while we searched for a more upscale hotel. Instead we ended up staying at the Bay Shores for six wonderful days. The location is close to the pier and restaurants (Momma D's is excellent). Loved the warm cookies that are served every day in the hotel at 3:00. Very friendly and helpful staff. Really easy access to the Pacific Coast highway and the 55 freeway.
This is a great place! The rooms were beautiful and very clean. The beach is so close and the service was spectacular! Bridget was very sweet and helpful with local recommendations. The hospitality and overall feeling of warmth from everyone there was great. The rooftop deck was a great perk with beautiful views. I will absolutely stay there again if I have the fortune of being in the area
We stayed here last year after running in our first ever Half marathon.....the Surf City marathon.... and enjoyed it so much we returned again this year. My husband and our friend took on the challenge of the full marathon while the ladies tackled the half again. We can not say enough about the great staff, Warren, Ed and Bridgette were always willing to help us with anything we requested....wine glasses, hair dryers, directions or suggestions on places to see and eat. The morning breakfasts were great and the evening cookies delicious.
We were in the area for business and decided to stay near the beach. We are so happy we did! This is definitely a place we will come back to and look forward to it! Class, charm and character sum it up.
We found Bay Shores on line, (while travelling Route 66) read the reviews and decided it was the place for us and wow what a place. Looks small from outside but inside is great. The rooms where spotless, the beach is not even 2 minutes walk and the staff fantastic. I had the misfortune of spraining my ankle the 2nd night in and the staff could not have been more helpful. They even offered to put me on the luggage trolley to get me back to my room. (haha) The homemade cookies were a fantastic treat for my partner also.
