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!

This was a great find. Our room was nice and large and clean. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows. The location is just a couple blocks from a very private beach. The hotel lends beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, toys etc. to guests to use at the beach. We tried three very good restaurants within walking distance - all recommended by... More

We stay 4 nights over memorial weekend, they didn't make our room after 2nd night, and after 3rd night we had to request service b/c it was not done at 4pm when we returned to our room (were out from 11 am).

As a few other reviews have mentioned, the arrival is a little off putting. It is just off the highway and when we got there several rooms were being re-carpeted so the reception was essentially in the car park, however the staff were really friendly, knowledgeable and apologetic which is good enough for me. The location is good for the... More

So I admit I was a little scared when we drove up! But what a surprise.....first I'll start with registration, the gentlemen at the desk was so pleasant and incredibly helpful with location, traffic detours and dinner recommendations. Our room was in the back upstairs, very quiet overlooking a small park an very very comfortable, well appointed and had everything... More

I brought a group of university students for a two-night stay at this hotel, and it was such a wonderful experience! The staff were more than helpful about meeting our needs and giving us ideas on different places to visit in the area. It was the perfect location and right down the road from the beach! My students loved their... More

Enjoyed my recent one night solo stopover here on my way to Los Angeles . Pluses: 1. Spacious comfortable room. Comfortable bed. Quiet surroundings 2. Friendly helpful staff. After they sized up my interests, I was informed of the unusually high surf at the nearby Wedge My visit there became the highlight of my visit. 3. Beach chairs, towels, boogie... More
