We would never have found this gem without TripAdvisor reviews and we see now why people rave about the Bay Shores. We stayed 2 nights with our two teenagers in their suite (unit 100). We had a large living area with full dining table for 6, a queen bed, two sofas and a half bath. In addition was a separate bedroom with a king bed, and a large full bath with double sinks. Very comfortable beds and great shower.
Our room was spotless and when we arrived a card was on the bed welcoming us. The staff are just as wonderful as everyone says and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The location of this hotel is wonderful with a quick stroll to the bay, the beach and Newport Pier. Lots of restaurants near by, bike rental and easy 10 min drive to Newports Fashion Island for great shopping. Breakfast was good each morning and coffee and tea were available all day, not to mention the 3pm freshly baked cookies. We loved our time at Bay Shores and would highly recommend this wonderful, hospitable hotel. Oh, and we arrived home to a postcard thanking us for our stay.
