“Good Location, Decent Price, Well Kept Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The rooms are decent size, well appointed and comfortable. Ocean view rooms are only a sliver of a view. Not really worth the extra cost. Although the hotel is on PCH, it's very quiet in the room. The breakfast was great with a wide variety of choices, including hot foods. The kids loved the pool and the seating around the pool was nice. The staff is fairly friendly. It's a good spot to get around the Newport Beach area.

I stayed here only because I was attending a wedding that was on a boat just across the street. It's a nice comfy place. Nice room and it was clean. The breakfast was good and the attendant kept things stocked. My only complaint is that I paid extra for a "partial bay view." That turned out to be a joke as even though I was on the 2nd floor there was a palm tree right in front of my window and even if you could look around it there was a building across the street blocking the view of the bay. This is very misleading and I'm sure many people like me fall for it.

Room Tip: Don't pay the extra $$ for a Bay View, you won't get a view at all!

My children and I stayed the night here after viewing the Harbor of Lights (Christmas boats lights). The room did not have an operating heater. When we brought this to the attention of the front desk, we were moved to another room (no problem). The hotel was right across the street from the viewing area at the Boy Scouts Sea Harbor location for the Harbor Lights. There was a free breakfast the next morning. I can't really complain about a "free" breakfast.

The place is nice and quiet, even tho it is on a busy street. The rooms were clean. The service was good. Continental breakfast was ok. Could have been more selection. It is nice and close to harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

This is a perfect hotel for anyone not looking for luxury but you still want a very good hotel to stay in. Me and the beautiful lady were looking to getaway from the L.A. area, where we live, for a couple days, and decided to spend some time relaxing and enjoying Newport Beach. This place is super clean, staff is great. They treat you like 5 star guests. The fresh baked cookies and candy at the front desk was a very nice touch. The pool and whirlpool were both clean, pool had pool toys for kids, and a cabana in the pool area. Breakfast in the morning wasn't the best I've ever had, but I'd still give it a 7/10. The pancake maker machine was awesome. As far as location goes, it's a close walk to a couple really good restaurants, like the Rusty Pelican, that had a view of the harbor. The front desk guy recommended it to us. But as far as the beach and all the fun stuff Newport and Balboa has to offer, you will have to drive it, but it's a quick 5-10 drive to everything. And with everywhere having free parking just about, I actually preferred this as we were able to drive our car to the thick of the area, park all day, and do what we wanted, and drive back to our hotel instead of walk back. To be honest, the hotels staying right on the beach didn't seem as clean as this one, being that they are right on the sand and beach, and a lot more busy and loud. My only gripe with this place is that while it was still cheaper than other hotels, it was still a pretty penny for a Holiday Inn. It was a value, but I've payed to stay in luxury hotels for the same price as this one. So keep in mind that you are still paying for being in Newport, and that's what you base your value off of, not a typical value hotel that's nice and clean. Still, I would 100% recommend this to anyone, and more than likely will be the only place I'd stay again when coming back to Newport.

Ideal value hotel for exploring the area but you do need a car. Only a short drive to the fantastic Balboa island with its quaint shops and millionaire residences. Go early to get a parking space though. We took the island boat tour which tells you everything you need to know. You can also walk around the outside of island and people watch and take a good look at the properties and their boats. You can get the ferry over on foot to Balboa and the beaches at the cost of 1 dollar each!

The hotel is simple with a small pool with a good breakfast and is clean. Staff are friendly and plenty of parking. Within an easy drive to the shops at Fashion Island , Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach.

Newport Beach marked the terminus of our travels down the Pacific Coast Highway. The Holiday Inn Express is a very nice place to rest your head. It is away from nightlife, beach and tourist activities. It is right on Highway 1. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet. The staff was very nice. The complimentary breakfast was nice. There is also a laundry room with two washers and dryers that was clean with machines that operated perfectly - not always the case in motels. A very nice place to stay using it as a base for touring.
