Stayed for 2 nights here while on a trip with a friend. This hotel is a hidden gem that needs to be buried again. Very old and has a damp musty smell in the rooms. The housekeeping does a poor job at cleaning the rooms. Bathroom cleanliness was not good. When the door to outside of room is closed you... More

This is a hidden gem with a great location, nice people and a good beach vibe. Reasonable rates and clean.. We had a slight noise problem from the upstairs room, but that wasn't the fault of the innkeepers. Good area to walk and beach is across the street. Good restaurants nearby.

Located two blocks off the local end of Newport Beach, this family run motel is a standard motor inn located on PCH. The motel has no amenities except parking and a deck upstairs. There is no view of the bech, but the sand is only 200 yards away across a busy section of local highway. Although the ads say the... More

Stayed here with friends on a trip to the beach. The rooms are extremely comfortable, there is a patio upstairs to relax and enjoy the weather. Staff is super friendly, and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. If you walk 1 block north on PCH, and cross the road you are half a block off of the ocean. They've even got... More

The location of this hotel is great! It is right across the street from the beach. The hotel will also lend you boogie boards, and other beach equipment. The hotel also has parking available for it's guests. I will stay here again if I'm in the area.

We travel around California for 10 days, staying at different motels most night from San Fransisco down to Newport Beach. This was definitely the best. The welcome was warm, we didn't know much about the area and the staff were very helpful, our room was clean and better decorated than the other places we had stayed. It was handy for... More

I went to Newport Beach, California for the first time last month. I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations at Newport Channel Inn. The front desk fellow Michael, I think was his name, greeted me and allowed me to check in early. I had driven from Phoenix, Arizona so I was relieved to be allowed an early check-in. The rooms...

My wife and I stayed here recently because our house was being tented for termites. We live very close to the Newport Channel Inn and my wife booked the hotel because of proximity and the low cost. I admit I was skeptical being a Marriott /Hyatt guy. But what a pleasant surprise. The room was really big and nicely equipped.... More

I stayed there for a weekend. Conveniently located to the beach, free parking in front of the inn and they even provide beach towels free of charge. Other equipment like bodyboards, beach chairs etc can be rented. Clean and spacious room, no frills.

Clean, Friendly, Affordable, Great Location. I am a neat freak, My room was spotless. They even have covers on both the mattress and box spring. The desk clerk spent some extra time to map places to see and eat. He really knows the area. A spacious room across the street from the beach for under $150. Close to the beach,... More
