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.
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!
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!
Warren greeted us at the front door, very nice and you can tell how proud he is of bay shores. This is not a luxurious hotel but if you want cozy and feel welcomed this is the place for you. The beach is nearby and they let you rent bikes and beach chairs. The continental breakfast wasn't too bad. My husband appreciated the wave and water report they post along with surfer pictures in the room.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised! The hotel is tastefully done and very cozy. Ralph, Paul and Warren were so welcoming and accommodating and couldn't do enough for their guests. The rooms were very clean and had all amenities necessary, even a refrigerator and safe were tucked away in the closet.
Waren für zwei Nachts im Bay Shores Peninsula und hatten hier eine großartige Zeit. Sehr schön eingerichtete Zimmer und ein ganz tolles Frühstück, dass man auf der Dachterasse des Hotels einnehmen konnte. War bestimmt nicht der letzte Besuch! Absolut zu empfehlen!
What an amazing find!
I have stayed there numerous times over the last 5 years both when business took me to Orange County or when family obligations did the same thing. This is a memorable location and the rooms were well appointed and very clean. The staff was very accomodating and the make your own breakfast fixins were great. Oh yeah, did I mention the chocolate chip cookies on arrival.
This hotel really exemplifies what customer service is all about. They are super friendly and accommodating and they have so many perks for their guests. Free wifi, cookies, breakfast, parking, movie rentals, the works! The price is reasonable and the location is FANTASTIC!!! They are right in between the bay and the ocean which is perfect and they are walking distance to the bars and restaurants.
No complaints! Friendly staff, nice clean rooms. Short walk to the boardwalk and beach. Sun deck on roof. They loan beach chairs and umbrellas. Nice amenities! Very pleasant stay! On a busy street but traffic noise was not a problem, and I don't like noisy places. I would stay here again.
