"Fantastic Hotel in Newport Beach"

July 2012

What a great little place this is! We stayed for 3 nights in July and this was my favourite hotel out of the 5 we stayed in on a tour of Las Vegas & California. It has a real home from home feel about it. From the home baked cookies everyday to the DVD library and the lovely helpful staff. We got parked ok in the car park and had a lovely room (305). Staff were great in ensuring we were ok and recommended some lovely nearby restaurants (The Old Spahetti House and Il Forno were our favourites).

"Can only echo reviews of others"

Norfolk, VA - May 2012

I can only echo reviews of others who have made this the highest Tripadvisor-rated property in Newport Beach. Stayed there recently over Memorial Day weekend. Everything was good or better than I recall when I last stayed there 10 years ago. Rooms are well furnished, location is perfect for a beach weekend. Best to park the car & forget it as spaces are limited. (Staff will feed the meter if there isno hotel parking left). We walked all over Balboa Peninsula.

"We WILL be going back"

Las Vegas, Nevada - May 2012

My family stayed at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel over Memorial Day Weekend, 2012. We rented 3 rooms and had 2 people in each room.

"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
