I was looking for a nice place within walking distance of the beach, and this place was perfect. My biggest pet peeve with Newport Beach is the lack of parking, so this place was a godsend. I really did not spend too much time in the room, but it was clean and pretty quiet at night with the AC running.... More

The best thing about this place is the location. It's a very small property with limited parking spaces. You can walk to the beach, pier and the bay. There are many places to eat. The beach is just a block or so away on one side and the bay is on the other side. There is a movie theater in... More

I was fooled by false reviews on Google and photos of renovated room interiors. Beware--- updated furnishings does not equal high quality accommodations or service! This is simply a motel, not a quaint little inn as its name proclaims. Thin walls. Partial hole in the door. Flimsy mattress. Wall-mounted shampoo and body soap dispensers in the shower. While just a... More
