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:)

Special place close to the beach

Posted May 18, 2017
We loved our stay at the Bayshore. There were so many special touches at this hotel, like the fresh baked cookies, fresh fruit and water in the room, breakfast included and natural bath products. We weren't able to take advantage of the rooftop patio and beach supplies because of the weather, but it's great to have those available. Warren was an excellent host. The location was also great--a block from the beach and boardwalk, a few minutes walk from lots of great restaurants. A long but manageable walk to Balboa Pier. Loved this place!

Roof patio was very nice, view of the beach and the bay. Pleasant amenities, home made cookies at 3 every afternoon, bowl of fruit and water in the room, before bed hotel staff left chocolates on the bed! Very pleasant stay!

Basic hotel close to the beach

Posted Apr 8, 2017 on Orbitz
Basic hotel close to the beach. It could use some remodeling. The roof top deck was the best thing about this hotel. Walking distance to restaurant, etc.
