Me n the wife stayed here for 2 nights at the back end of our 3 week USA bonanza. We arrived from LA with the proviso of bein able to see the beach if not directly on it, we weren't dissappointed. The 'Bay Shores' is literally 50 metres from the beach and you can even see it from some rooms (for an extra price). We plumped for a room on the first floor declining the 'sea view', due to the excellent roof terrace where you can sit n enjoy a beer whilst lookin at the Pacific Ocean and the sunset in one direction or the Marina in the other. Rooms were clean and comfortable,ours had a 42in tv, breakfast was good with a wide choice on offer, fresh fruit and coffee were available all day and freshly baked cookies were available each day at 3pm mmmm. The Bay Shores has boogieboards, chairs, umberellas and towels available to use, all free of charge. Having stayed at other places in Newport Beach before, none have been as good as this one. Ralph was a true host, will definately go back.
