Great location and very service-oriented staff.

All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. Great location - walking distance to the beach and the bay. Really an outstanding hotel - we will stay here again.

Thank you for the nice review. The walking path along the beach is worth checking out if you haven't already! We'd be so glad to welcome you back for another stay at Bay Shores.

Truly a Hidden Treasure

Posted Mar 23, 2018
We had a great time. Unfortunately, we were only there one night. Warren welcomed us upon arrival with great service, information and fresh baked cookies! The hotel is a very short walk to the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable. We headed to the beach and pier and had a beautiful sunset. We returned late to the hotel and found our bed turned down and chocolate on the pillow. We certainly did not expect this!!! Breakfast was very basic, but fine for us. Donna (I think that is her name, I am terrible with names) was very pleasant and had many recommendations for us as we were traveling south along the coast. This was great!! Donna also offered to mail our postcard to our Grandson for us. Fresh flowers in the lobby and breakfast area were lovely. We even had a bud vase in our bathroom. This was way over and beyond what we expected and the service was superior to the rest of our CA vacation. Even with the 5 Star resort we stayed at on Laguna Beach. Thank you for the very pleasant stay.

Our beach hideout

Posted Mar 22, 2018
We've stayed here several times in the last 15 years, and its always nice to see some of the same great staff (Ralph in particular) that have been there for a long time. They always make spending a weekend on the beach a joy. Lawn chairs, umbrella, towels even beach toys are provided for free. See if the high priced resorts offer that without a charge! Highly recommend with reluctance, as we don't want everyone to know about this small Gem on Newport Peninsula. Dan

Dan, It's always great to see you staying with us at Bay Shores. We love to keep the place small, and familial, with all of those amenities free of charge. We look forward to the next time you come to Newport Beach!

Incredible!

Posted Jan 29, 2018
This hotel is so conveniently located and the staff is amazing. Warren checked us in and is incredibly kind and charismatic. The room was cute, and we enjoyed the mice breakfast spread on the sun roof, taking in the breathtaking morning view. Parking is tight, but we found a spot okay. Plus, free cookies! There's no way the expedia deal is the regular because if so, this place is a hidden gem

Great cozy well situated place

Posted Jan 21, 2018
The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and always available. The location is prime with the ocean and inside bay each just a block away. This is my third visit and I will return again. Many extra amenities- fruit in the room, cookies in the lobby, beach equipment to check out at no cost. You can’t lose staying here!

A Pleasant Stay

I enjoyed my stay. Close to Newport Pier, restaurants, few shops all within walking distance. Even have beach chairs, etc., many DVD's for viewing. All a great convenience.
