What a gem. Located across the street from the beach and a walkway to the bike path, this classic small hotel provides just the right home for a visit to Newport Beach. Super friendly staff, ample breakfast options, cookies in the evening and a powerful shower will get you value for your cost. While not, by any means, luxurious, this hotel makes up for the lack of polish with character and comfort. There is a certain soulfulness to this hotel. Amenities like beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys and chairs help make your stay both comfy and fun.
I am so very excited to be coming for another visit over Thanksgiving. This is positively my favorite place to stay in Newport Beach (8th or 9th time I believe). Wonderful staff, rooms are very well taken care of, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon and a great breakfast (also free). We just can't get enough of the beach, shops and the fantastic restaurants just a few steps away.
I stayed at the hotel one night. It is right on the beach and the beach is wonderful. It is quiet, relaxed and very friendly. All extras are free including parking. Free freshly baked cookies in the lounge after 15.00 hours... staff were all very helpful. They have a large DVD library which is free for guests, in fact so many attentive details and the roof top terrace is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view. There are many restaurants within walking distance.
I booked this hotel after reading other reviews and it lived up to the expectations. Very helpful & friendly staff, clean & well appointed rooms, excellent location to the beach and restaurants, free beach chairs & toys, free breakfast, free parking and best of all is the wonderful customer service (greeting card on bed, turn down at night & ohhh those cookies). I would definitely stay and recommend here again. We enjoy smaller hotel venues instead of the mega chains and this one fits the bill.
As with other reviewers we had a great stay at the hotel, and after having stayed at a 4 Diamond hotel in San Diego before our visit here were a bit apprehensive.
Location is excellent - across the beach and bay. Free car parking. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
Great buffet breakfast to start the day and we took ours on the sundeck on the 4th floor, with views of both the ocean and bay.
A short walk to Newport pier and restuarants and bar - the car did move for the 3 days of our stay.
Well to start with we really enjoyed staying at the Bay Shores Peninsula hotel. Others have said so many good things so it’s hard to come up with something different.
Just about everything. Perfect location between beachs.. Staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. They provided towels, chairs & umbrellas for the beach, as well as boogie boards. Free wifi .. I could go on..”
Very impressed with this Hotel! My wife and I had a weekend get away here in late September and got an excellent rate though I would have been happy to pay more because this place was that good. It is an older hotel, but the rooms are very clean, good beds and a powerful massaging shower. Service was excellent and the entire staff is very very friendly. They seem to really take pride in their work and this hotel.
I stayed at the hotel with my wife for our honeymoon almost a year ago. We loved the place soooooo much that we still visit their website and see the pictures. The location was great, you can just walk to the beach. The staff is great and the breakfast is yummie. They also give out boards to use for surfing etc.
We will come back, this is a promise to the hotel! We cant wait to see you guys again.
The location is great, accommodations are great, room was clean quiet and very comfortable. We came here based off of other reviews and were not disappointed, the price here was very reasonable for Newport. We usually go to Newport a couple of times a year and we will definitely stay here again.
