This hotel is in a great location, easy access to go towards Huntington Beach or down towards Balboa/Newport Pier. The room was well equipped (coffee maker, refrig, microwave, hair dryer), the A/C was adjustable and quiet, parking right outside the room made for convenient packing and unpacking of the car. They offer use of beach towels, chairs, float devices. Bedding... More

We stayed here on a family vacation and loved the proximity to the beach (just across the street - 5 minutes using stoplight to get across a somewhat busy street). The hotel is a nice, little, no frills place to stay. The staff is very nice and the rooms are very basic, a little on the dated side, and clean.... More

Location + ! Walking distance to great food and drink. The staff is excellent. The accommodations are clean and well maintained. We stayed in a room towards the back and it was very quiet, overlooking a park and the estuary. 4 or 5 great restaurants within 2 blocks. They have a great rooftop deck next to PCH and the sunset...

I decided to book this for one night prior to checking into our beach house since the location was literally 3 minutes from the house. This place was great. The staff was quick at check in, the rooms were very large, the bathroom fit 3 of us girls in the mirror doing our makeup with room to spare. The beds... More

Our first visit to Newport Beach. Loved that we could walk to the beach with the kids. The hotel had beach chairs, umbrellas and toys available for us. There is a nice park right behind the inn. Wish we could have stayed more than one night.

We had previously stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and loved that hotel, but this trip it was a lot more expensive, so we looked elsewhere and came across this one. This was the best alternative, but I wasn't that happy with the room. The carpet felt damp, I had to put my shoes back on and it had a... More

Thank you for staying with us back in October of 2014! Every winter we install new upgrades and improvements, and among the many we did since you stayed with us included replacing all carpet in every room and replacing every toilet with an upgraded new model. Our new carpet upgrade gives us even more soundproofing than we had before plus... More

With such a convenient place right across from the beach coupled with nice clean rooms and an extremely friendly and helpful front office staff, you can't go wrong with the Newport Channel Inn! We arrived much earlier than the normal check in time and the gentleman at the front desk helped in getting our room ready earlier - we appreciated... More

We stayed here for five days. It was our first time to Newport Beach. The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The Inn is old but very well kept. The beach is about a two block walk. The Inn has beach chairs and gear to use durring your stay. It is a short five or ten minute drive... More

The Channel Inn is just a short walk to the beach and within walking distance of three very good restaurants. The room was clean and spacious enough with comfy beds. The helpfulness from the front desk was a little spotty, but overall it was a very good hotel and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
