When I got booked that hotel I was reading really bad reviews and I was a bit discouraged but hey, that's what the company paid. Anyway, reviews are mostly wrong. The place is a bijoux, a real pearl near the beach. Room was clean, refurnished and so comfortable! Of course, they say it.. it's like a small boutique in fact... More

The property itself is nice. Great location close to the pier and restaurants. Check in was friendly and efficient. We had a balcony room with a nice patio. The room was clean and updated. Overall the experience was great as it was nice to sit on the patio and people watch. The problem is that unless you are one of... More

Pros: stellar location, friendly staff, recently updated, free parking, free bikes (didn't end up using) Cons: Filthy carpeting and stained upholstery, poor quality fixtures I really wanted to like this place because of its location and the fact that it's a small, independent business (my favorites) but that wasn't the case. First off, the front desk staff was great, when... More

Great place to stay! If you come to Newport....this location is the best. You have everything you need within walking distance. ...and The Wedge is a shirt bike ride away!!!!!! I obviously love to surf but it's still a must see while in Orange County. ....

I had the stomachs flu over 24 hours before my reservation. I called to ask if I can cancel and the manager said she will charge me anyway because too many people are making that excuse lately. Luckily I felt better the next day and made it to the hotel. The lady at reservation desk wouldn't let me get my... More

Great location in Newport Beach, walking distance to the beach and Pier. So many great restaurants nearby. They also offer free bikes, can't beat that. Rooms are not 5 star but for this location and in this price range, just fine. Would stay again :)

As we usually go to Laguna Beach we did not this time as it is Sawdust Festival & overly crowded and hotel prices are more than I'm willing to pay so searched on-line and came across this little gem. It is not right on the beach but about 1/2 -1 block away. Very easy to get to. Had a very... More

The receptionist received us with a very welcoming smile and quiet helpful with local restaurants and sites. The location is fabulous as you are just steps away from the ocean, shopping and bars. However, the street noise from loud car stereos and pedestrians is awful. So if you are a light sleeper this would not be the place for you.... More

I found this little Inn on short notice due to a Memorial in Newport Beach I had to go to. The hotel was close to where I needed to be plus it was across the street from my most favorite Mexican restaurant of all time, Avila's Mi Ranchito. The hotel is located in between two major streets and you couldn't... More

Spent a long weekend at The Little Inn by the Bay and happy we chose this hotel. Clean, cute room, nice and helpful front desk staff. The bikes were a plus in getting around town. Would stay again.

Dear Jan, It is so wonderful to hear that you had such a positive experience here at our small hotel! Also that you were able to take advantage of the bikes, we also offer complimentary beach towels, umbrellas and beach chairs, just what you need for a trip to the beach. In addition, I'm glad you mentioned just how helpful... More
