Will Stay Here Again!

Posted Jun 19, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff and clean.
Cons: Parking situation, but the staff helps with the meters.
Location: Great location to begin your bike ride around Newport Harbor.
Arrived less than one hour before 3:00 PM check-in and room was ready. Paul was working the front desk and provided as he said it, "10-cent" tour of the hotel and its amenities. Paul was awesome and thorough. The Hotel was clean and all staff were friendly and attentive. Enjoyed the 3:00 PM chocolate chip cookies, borrowed several movies from the hotel library, and had more than enough to eat at breakfast. My room was clean and there was also turn down service with a little chocolate left behind; nice touch of class. The hotel is located close to Newport Pier and was only about a 5 minute walk. I recommend Baja Sharkies by the pier: great food and good drink specials. Overall, great location and just a really nice place to stay.

Fantastic Hotel in Newport Beach

Posted Jun 14, 2014
Had a fantastic one night stay at Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel on our way up the West Coast - the hotel is clean, the location brilliant for the beach, the Pier, and places to eat, but by far the best thing about this hotel is the fantastic staff who make your stay comfortable and like a home from home. If not for pre-arranged itinerary we would certainly have stayed longer and this was most definitely the best hotel we stayed in during a 2 week road trip. Special mention of the AMAZING cookies bought out in the afternoon, freshly baked and best enjoyed on the roof-top area overlooking the harbour. Also, the rentable beach equipment was an added bonus to enjoying our time in Newport. Have already recommended to friends going over in future and would recommend to anybody wanting a relaxing place to stay in Newport.

EXCELLENT HOTEL & STAFF - VERY CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

Posted May 25, 2014
Pros: CLEANLINESS - very friendly - location to beach and boardwalk
Cons: nothing from my stay !!
Location: a block from the beach and 3 short blocks from the boardwalk where there is numerous paces to eat, shop and some bars, short drive to tons of sites
EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT !! to start with this is maybe the 3rd time I have EVER 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. I was overwhelmed with how friendly the staff was at check in, Ralph was more than helpful with showing us around and helping us plan our next 3 days. But we still had to go see our room. I am one step away from a germ-a-phob , and this room, their basic room, was immaculate!!! Super clean !! A little on the small side but I'll take that when its THIS clean. Even the trim on the wall next to the floor (yeah I even look at that) looked freshly painted!! The staff the whole 3 days was NOTHING but friendly and went out of their way to smile and say Hi. I can't say enough good about this place. Walking distance to everything you want and CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN !! Very nice place!!! and I would stay there again without hesitation. This was our first trip to Newport Beach, but NOT our last !!!

Fantastic Hotel

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
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. The joy was taking our breakfast on a tray to the roof terrace where you can dine in sunshine with views towards the sea. Car parking was easy in a public car park (never full) immediately adjacent to the hotel. You notified the hotel receptionist you were parked there and they fed the meters all day if necessary at no cost to you. There was also free Wi-Fi, (we were charged $10 a night in another hotel for this facility) and you could take out free bottles of water as required. The hotel also provided towels and seats to take to the nearby beach. Where else would you get such service at this price? Throughout our stay the hotel staff were very obliging and helpful. Would I stay there again? Definitely. I am a critical guest and could find nothing wrong. OK so it didn't have marble floors or a swimming pool etc, and may appear to be somewhat old fashioned and quaint to some, but for my money this hotel ranks with the best. Thank you for a super stay.
