A very nice place to stay in Newport beach

Posted Jul 11, 2014
The room is spacious with all necessary facilities, Very close to the beach and bike rental shop which makes it very convenient to ride bike along the beach, Otherwise there is small green with children's playground at the back of the hotel. My daughter loved it. We will definitively stay here again if we ever get a chance to come back to Newport Beach,

Great place close to the beach

Posted May 24, 2014
We had a great time and this is a really great place to stay. I rated condition ok as it is an old motel, but the owners work on it all of the time making sure it is running smoothly and everything looks nice. The staff was great and they have beach towels, beach chairs and kiddie toys available at no charge. The location is excellent. There is a new restaurant, Eat Chow, close by with an incredible menu and wonderful coffee. Beach across the street - it doesn't get any better than that for a very reasonable price.

Nice and respectable stay

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: It was clean and close to the beach, free beach towels and beach chairs. boogie boards, provide free parking and WiFi which was a plus.
Cons: The microwave could be replaced. You only get the Interac/Visa slip as your receipt, I had to ask for the official receipt with all the charges.
Location: Bike rental close by, you can go to the beach and hang out at the restaurants and pubs near by.
The Inn isn't a luxury resort hotel but it is respectable, affordable and in the right location close to the beach and rental shop. The room was very clean and had just what you'd need for a short 3 day visit. There's a mini fridge and microwave for your convenience. The hotel is just across from the beach and there's a restaurant beside it that would be good for breakfast and lunch (but we didn't try it). Another plus is there's a bike rental shop just beside it that you can rent those beach cruisers for $20 for a 24 hour period. My husband and I rented two bikes and got to ride along the beach. It was a great trip and we will be back next time.

Great location and very clean

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: Great location and very clean 3 beds for the price of 2
Cons: Air conditioning unit needs work to get rid the smell
Great price for what you get! It is across street from the beach and next door to Cappy's -which is best breakfast place in Newport Beach. Would have been excellent overall if the air conditioner did not smell badly of silicon when we turned it on - we quickly turned it off and kept the windows open for air circulation. We had 3 beds in our room which the kids enjoyed. I would say do not pay the extra money to stay at the Best Western next door as this place was good.

Newport Channel Inn

Posted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: see above
Cons: We did want to spend a few quiet hours during the afternoon and was disturbed by someone sawing tile...could that have been done elsewhere?
Location: see first comment.
Spacious clean room with a comfortable king bed. I liked the vanity and sink area it also had a desk and another table with 2 chairs. It came equipped with wi-fi, TV,micro, refrig, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There were many lighting choices in the room which works for me being light sensitive. I liked the friendly staff and the use of beach towels for the beach 2 blocks away. The beach was fantastic, quiet with expansive beach great for long walks and surfer and bird watching even saw a small pod of dolphins. We did not have a car so having Capies diner next door was a plus.

Pros: Clean rooms
Cons: Didn't get my AAA discount that was the only thing... the young man said I should have booked through there website to get that discount..
It was a nice stay not noisy and they cleaned the room daily.. I would recommend it to my family and friends for sure.
