There is so much to love about this little motel. I wanted an authentic beach experience, easy, carefree and relaxed, and this was perfect. The beach is a short walk, with a crosswalk to cross the PCH. The rooms were large and clean, which is remarkable considering how much sand we tracked in, even after carefully spraying everything. Whoever cleans... More

This hotel is great. Its just like the one at the end of the movie "Bedtime Stories." The owners are so nice and hospitable. They are accommodating and have boogie boards, chairs, and all the beach things you could want---for free and the beach is right across the street. The rooms were clean and very comfy (the pillows are just... More

Just stayed at this hotel & would stay again. Very close to beach & the hotel provides chairs, boogie boards, towels, & umbrellas. It is very convenient to Balboa, Crystal Cove & Huntington Beach. The staff was very friendly & helpful. We were traveling with a large group (11) and everything was great. Rooms are clean & updated. I would... More

We just returned from a stay at the Newport Channel Inn with our kids before they head back to school next week. I chose this hotel purely by the reviews on Trip Advisor. I do agree that the location is good, the parking was convenient and it was a quick 5 minute walk to the beach (you do have to... More

We were visiting the area for the first time. I was a bit apprehensive about the location, not being close to the piers and commercial areas, but this turned out to be a blessing. Those seeking to be in the midst of the hustle and bustle of places like the Newport Pier will need to look elsewhere. If you are... More

Have stayed here several times and most recently in July. Staff is ALWAYS very pleasant and helpful. They loan out beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards etc. Very short walk to beach which is biggest selling point. The rooms are always clean and comfortable but if you want more than a motel setting then this may not be for you.... More

While it is not on the beach it is a short walk across the street. Hotel provides towels, boogie boards, chairs and a few other toys. Front end staff and housekeeping staff very friendly and gave great recommendations for restaurants and surfing. Room was standard size to slightly larger than normal hotel, and spotless. Refrigerator and microwave too. Liquor store/grocecies... More

Just spent 10 days at this location to recoup after surgery at Hoag Hospital.The staff was so accommodating and friendly. The price charged for this location was excellent. The beach is across the street and there is a great choice of restaurants within walking distance. We stayed in the newly remodeled Handicap accessible room and it was perfect for our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, very nice. Great location right across from the beach and parking is Included, parking in the Newport area turned out to be a pain. We did NOT rent bikes but that looked like the way to get around. The hotel has beach towels/boogie boards/ a few chairs/umbrellas for guests to use for free. The... More

This is absolutely our new go-to hotel in Newport Beach. We had looked at this place before but thought it may be too far away from the Crab Cooker. Not at all. This location is actually far preferable over hotels nearer Newport Pier. It is close enough to walk or bike all the way to the Wedge (Newport Harbor) but... More
