What a wonderful place to stay in Newport Beach, the location is fantastic and the staff have the best customer service I have seen anywhere, we even had a thank you postcard in our mailbox on arriving home in Australia. You also can't beat the value for money Bay Shores provides. Thanks Warren and everyone else, we will definitely stay... More

So I was happy. Making the reservation on the phone, the gentleman could not have been more friendly, our check in Gal... More

We just spent the 25th-27th at the Bayshores Hotel. We have stayed in wonderful hotels all over the country and the world, and never had better service! The rooms are well designed and comfortable. With construction next door parking would be and issue; exceot the staff is all over it. We pulled in at 1AM and the desk clerk came... More

This was the first time we stayed at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel. It is now at the top of our list for future trips. Not only is the hotel very up to date, clean, and quaint with great personable service via front desk personnel, it was in a perfect location to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. We...

I always stay at this hotel when I am in the the area, It is quaint, comfortable, and the staff could not be more helpful. I arrived very late on 2/16, and night manager Bruce gave a warm welcome offered me late night snack from the pantry ! The place is peaceful and has an incredible location, even for a... More

The hotel offers excellent customer service , breakfast amenities , and just a great overall experience... More

The property is well maintained and the staff is super nice and helpful. If we ever make our way back to Newport we... More

Nice touches include freshly baked evening cookies, morning newpaper at doorstep, roof top deck that overlooks the town and two chairs and table outside each room with view of courtyard. Front desk was extremely helpful with great... More

We saw this small hotel had great reviews on Trip Adviser and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It is not a fancy hotel, but warm and inviting with many amenities and old fashioned values for comfort. For instance there is free wifi, a safe, a small frig, a make up mirror in the bathroom, a...

Thank you for giving us a try and for enjoying our small but welcoming atmosphere. Regarding the Marina project, the master plan looks like it will really be a wonderful addition to our neighborhood so we are looking forward to its completion.
