Favorite Place to Stay

Ontario, CA - July 2014

Favorite place to stay when I'm in the area. Rooms are clean, hotel is in a great location close to both the Newport and Balboa piers. Food and drink are just a short stroll away in a beautiful setting regardless of your desired choice. All you need for a day at the beach is at your disposal and the staff is always there to give you options - great suggestions and recommendations for dinner and fun.

VERY Friendly Staff

West Covina, CA - July 2014

This place is in walking distant to many fun things and the beach & bay. Start your morning with a free breakfast.

First Rate Operation

Santa Monica, CA - July 2014

A first rate operation with authentic local color--non corporate and familiar in tone.  So glad to find this place.  Can't overuse the terms "clean" and "charming," or "unrehearsed friendliness."  (One pays a bit of a premium for these and well worth it.) 

We'll be back next summer!

Phoenix, AZ - July 2014

We had a wonderful stay! Perfect accommodations and location. Loved how helpful and friendly the staff was. We'll be back next summer!


Amazing Place!

UK - July 2014

Lovely rooms with great toiletries, safety deposit box, fridge and wifi. The staff were friendly and helpful, free hire of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boggie boards and beach toys was great. Cookies in reception each afternoon was definitely a highlight for me! Also a vast selection of DVD's in reception for free hire was great.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!

June 2014

EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT !! to start with this is maybe the 3rd time I have NEVER taken the time to write a review, so that should say something right there. I'll start by saying when we pulled up I was concerned. We are used to staying in more modern 5 star hotels and somewhat large ones. When we pulled up it looked small and just not what we were used to.

Best Small Hotel I've Stayed In!

May 2014

The best small hotel I have ever stayed in. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well furnished. The welcome by the night porter when we arrived at 11.45pm (after travel delays) was very warm and helpful. We were offered refreshments before we retired. The buffet breakfast was extensive and catered for most needs.

This Place is Great!

Las Vegas, NV - June 2014

I've been visiting and staying at Newport Beach/Balboa over 40 years now. I've tried just about every type of lodging over the years. This last visit with my wife was quite a bit different than the others. I stumbled on Bayshore Peninsula Hotel and was pleasantly surprised. I've passed the hotel probably a thousand times over the years and never noticed it.

Our Yearly Getaway

San Diego, CA - June 2014

If you are wanting to stay at a cute, little hotel that covers all the little things, then this is the place for you. My husband and I try to stay here every year. The people that work here are super nice and very helpful!

The Friendliest Hotel by Far

London, UK - June 2014

During our 2 week stay in the US, this was the friendliest hotel by far. On arrival we were greated warmly and told about all the great extras the hotel offers. Not only does it offer free beach equipment, towels and body boards it also has daily yummy freshly baked cookies!
