Best location and adorable rooms

Posted Aug 26, 2017
The room was very nice and clean. The staff treated us like family. The breakfast they had was very good. The location was right between the bay and the beach. It was easy to get around. The hotel has many things to borrow like chairs, towels, sand toys and little boards. We will definitely go back to this hotel! Warren at the front desk was the best!

Most of our interactions were with Warren, and all positive. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. They clearly take pride in their customer service and strive to make every guest feel important - something I've never experienced from such an unassuming quaint hotel... and fresh cookies are always a plus!

Great Location and Staff

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Location and authenticity. Free local transportation options.
Location: One block to the bay one way and and to the beach and the ocean the other way.
A great value overall. We were concerned a bit about parking availability but everything worked out fine especially over a busy summer weekend.

Great location and friendly, helpful staff!

Posted Jul 27, 2017
We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying in the Newport area. Right across the road from beach, shops and restaurants, yet still quiet etc. Staff are so friendly and helpful...there are even freshly baked cookies every day in the lobby! Loved it here!

Perfect Beach Vacation

Posted Jul 12, 2017
I chose this hotel because of the outstanding online reviews. I found all of the positive comments other travelers had made to be true. The staff is phenomenal and the location can't be beat. Walking distance to anything you could want on a beach vacation. The best part, all of their amnenities are included in their regular room rates. No extra fees or add-on resort charges like many other hotels. I'm already planning to stay at this hotel again next Summer!

It's The Little Things

Posted Jun 8, 2017
Pros: Cookies, friendly staff, top floor views of the bay and ocean( sunsets weren't bad either from up there) comfy bed, chair towel toy rentals, fridge...
Cons: Parking is an issue,just don't move your car. It sure would be super awesome if they had a hot tub. No clue where they could put it tho...
Location: Great location between bay and ocean! Tons to do on the Balboa peninsula,most within walking distance. Electric bikes were really fun. Two piers close
We have stayed here a few times. Honestly it isn't the location (but that helps) that keep us coming back but the little things that the hotel offers. Warren checks you in and is very personable. The room is quaint with fresh flowers, nice decorating, vegan lotions etc, a nice sized mini fridge. The fresh cookies are awesome and really available almost any time. They also offer a excellent breakfast! Ok so no omelette station or order cook but so many other self serve options! We love it and will continue to frequent this hotel. I almost forgot that they have free video rental and $1 popcorn! Book it now:)
