Some people have these "standards' and are too finiky. If you are on a budget, it is OK as the rooms have been remodeled. Be sure you get one of those. It is right by Newport Beach Blvd. The owner is a miser who won't pay for anything. I have stayed there several times. The biggest problem is the Wi... More

I stayed here for one night after attending a friends wedding in Newport beach and was not able to drive home. Just wanted somewhere to lay my head and wouldn't be too costly. The sand piper is exactly that. Old hotel and it looks the part. Plenty of parking and free wifi is nice. Room was pretty worn but for... More

Not good, not bad. No bugs, no problems with the WiFi, the breakfast was OK (coffee and donuts, the coffee was OK, not good and not bad). The room was cold at night. The bathroom and shower were tiny and old but still working. :)

Well long story short a friend and I booked this room via internet for a friends going away party. First off when we checked in the woman at the front desk seemed to be irritated that we had interrupted her from whatever she was doing , and shortly after that we walked around to our room and were shocked at...

My experience at Sandpiper was horrific! I got there in the middle of the night. I got into my room and it was freezing. The heater was broken, the window was stuck open about an inch and my curtains were falling off. Finally got a space heater at 7:30am. I asked to change rooms as the one I was in... More

The motel was cockroach infested, noisy and dirty. When I reported to managment their attitude was 'it happens sometimes'. I have never had such a horrible and disturbing experience staying at a hotel/motel. I certainly did not expect this for a motel in Costa Mesa!!!
