"I feel in love with the hotel"

Costa Mesa, California - May 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Bayshores for Valentines Day and it was also our 5 year anniversary. It was only a city away from were we live, but it felt like we were far away from home. When we first got there I remember the smell of fresh cookies (delicious) and how relaxing the lobby felt. The suite that we stayed in was so cozy everything in the room was perfect and the beds are so comfortable. It had a overall cozy beach feel we didn't want to leave. The balcony off the room was wonderful it has very comfortable rocking-chairs.

"...it's like staying with friends"

Denver, Colorado - June 2012

We were guests at the Bay Shores for 2 nights, and were very happy with our stay. The location can't be beat..only one short block to the ocean. The staff, especially Ralph, is friendly, helpful and professional. It's nice to return from a day seeing the sights, and to be greeted by name! The buffet breakfast is a nice touch, as are the fresh cookies each afternoon. Our room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was large and well stocked with amenities. They offer a library of complimentary DVDs, newspapers, beach towel and chairs...it's like staying with friends!

"Upgrade on Arrival"

United Kingdom - June 2012

We recently stayed for two nights during our honeymoon trip across California. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and very kindly offered us an upgrade on arrival given the occasion. Rooms are large and very clean - the pictures do not do them justice as they are very well done out. Beach is just across the road and it's very near the local restaurant/bar scene. Breakfast and home baked cookies also excellent. Thanks for a fantastic stay!


"Attention to Detail Exceptional"

Virginia - June 2012

 I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at your hotel! What an awesome place and you were all very accommodating! The attention to detail was exceptional and I felt right at home! Hope to visit again if I ever get back out to the West Coast!


"Location is Perfect"

El Paso, Tx - June 2012

We had a great stay at your hotel. Thank you to all the staff. The room was
comfortable, the location is perfect, and the amenities are great. We will
return next year, for sure!


"Definitely deserves to be Number One!"


This place is fantastic. The rooms are faultlessly clean with new fixtures, carpet and modern furniture - mini-fridges in the rooms make it easy to make simple meals. The lobby has a small kitchen area with toasters and microwaves, etc. available for meal preparation as well. Breakfast is served daily and offers lots of choices, and fruit and cookies are always available. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk people are as capable and helpful as the best concierges at fancy resorts.

"Superb Customer Service. Feels like Family"

We had a great experience. Our favorite perks were free breakfast that we enjoyed on rooftop patio, fresh baked cookies in afternoon and DVDs and popcorn at night. Staff already mailed us a thank you! Great location great service and great price

"I'm Hooked!"

Las Vegas, Nevada
I have been to the Bay Shores Peninsula twice now and will definitely become a regular! My first trip was in June with my Grandson and I just wanted someplace close to the beach that we could walk to. This was perfect! 
Newport Beach is not crowded and a very easy drive from where I live in Las Vegas. The second time I brought my daughter and Grandson and it was just as great. It was Christmas time and we went to see the annual Boat Parade! Lots of decorated boats crusing the harbor (which you can see from the roof).

"Great Hotel!, Delicious Cookies!"

Lausanne, Switzerland

This is a great hotel! Concierge John gave us free admission tickets incl. complimentary drinks for a cool local bar. The room was well-sized and the decor was nice (loved the little surfers on the bathroom wallpaper). During the day you can go to the kitchen next to the reception and help yourself with coffee, tea and snacks. Freshly baked afternoon cookies are delicious! There is a lot of beach equipment as well as beach towels that you can borrow for free and the hotel is ideally placed to go jogging along the beach.

"Fantastic Place!"

San Luis Obispo, CA

My parents came to visit and stayed here...it was fantastic! The staff is extremely friendly, they clean the rooms to perfection everyday, and they have a nice continental breakfast each morning. My parents stayed in the room with a deck and a fireplace, which was wonderful. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. If you are looking for a classic beach hotel with great customer service, this is the place!
