Close to beach!Posted Jun 10, 2015
For the price we paid I was very disappointed by the lack of amenities and service. I always stay at boutique hotels for the service and I will not pay to stay at this hotel again.

Charming, excellent locationPosted May 28, 2015
Excellent location, clean, quaint & charming, could use some interior renovation, but nothing serious. Be prepared to buy breakfast elsewhere, however.

I was fine except all the noisePosted May 27, 2015
If it wasn't for the tiled echoing hallways for which you hear everything including people walking ,talking,and their bags hitting all the cracks .its not a place for any peace and quiet.

Beach ExperiencePosted May 24, 2015
Pros: I enjoyed its location and for its historical feel.
Cons: Some newer features in the room. Refrigerator on the table was not a top notch feature.
Location: Beach, restaurants, shopping, and stores were nearby. The pier was very close with Ruby's restaurant at the end of the pier. Bike rentals nearby.
Great location for a beach experience. We stayed in the basic deluxe room, which was just fine for a one night stay. If I were staying longer, I would suggest a larger suite. Located just off the Newport Beach pier, the Balboa Inn is an excellent choice for enjoying the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The Balboa Inn, has been renovated and updated. Our room was a little warm, but was adequate for our brief stay. The staff was very friendly, and helpful.

No operational restaurant on site, but their website led me to believe that there was. If it only operates seasonally, that didn't appear to be on their website.

Great locationPosted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Lighter color in the rooms and pictures on the walls and carpet.
Location: It was close to the beach, the ferry and shopping.
I picked this hotel because of it's location. The valet who helped us with our luggage when we arrived was great, very friendly and helpful. The room was plain, no pictures and dark paint on the walls, and only one chair. But the bed was comfortable. It was not carpeted, and I prefer carpet. The continental breakfast was limited.

DisappointedPosted Apr 11, 2015
Cons: Beds, breakfast, jacuzzi
Location: Bike riding, ocean, great restaurants
The hotels location is incredible, but there were too many negatives to give it a good review. We requested two double bed, but we're give a king and a blow up air mattress. The mattress deflated on me at 2 am. That may sound funny, but not when you have a day full of fun things planned. No discount was given to me, just an apology. The continental breakfast was not impressive. Coffee, on, water, bagels and muffins were poorly displayed on a table. The toaster didn't work and the coffee was empty. We will not return.
