"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!

"Far more than I expected!"

Carlsbad, CA

Very clean and quaint room with great amenities. Far more than I expected! I've stayed in many hotels, and this one is definitely one of the best. Great breakfast, and fresh flowers in our room. Great staff, too! I would LOVE to stay here again!

"Great family-run Inn"

Carlsbad, California
I like family-run places because, unlike chains, they care. After all, there's nobody in "corporate" who decides what's best for guest (me!) and instead you get people who truly care. The staff at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel care, and it shows.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.


My experience with this hotel was just so great. We felt very welcome and at home. The staff was so friendly and willing to help.
The view from the sun deck was just amazing. We stayed in a suite and it was just perfect. The cookies in the afternoon were the best and one of my favorite amenities. The atmosphere was very relaxing and I recommend this hotel as a beach getaway. Thanks for a great weekend!!!

"Bay Shores is up to the same old stuff..."

Lincoln, Nebraska
And that's nothing but good! We've stayed there several times now, mixing business and leisure, and always look forward to going back to this well-kept, old-school fifties beach motel. These folks are in the hospitality business, not just renting rooms. The warm cookies, the video and book libraries, the rooftop deck, the gracious and accommodating staff... like a well run B&B in a motel setting.
