I had booked a room here through AirBnB. I'll start with the PROS of my 3 night stay: The motel room was clean, had a TV, very good WiFi, a small one-cup motel-style coffee machine, a fridge, microwave, and hair dryer. The king bed was comfortable. It was a 5 min walk (one block) to the beach. I saw that you can borrow beach chairs and beach towels from the motel. There are 2-3 restaurants, a small grocery store, and 2 cafés in immediate walking distance. Not much else around in terms of sights. It's a 40 min walk to Newport Beach pier. It's definitely walking/bicycle friendly. The CONS: I'm a noise-sensitive person. The walls were very thin and you could hear the other guests throughout the night. I was on the 2nd floor (no elevator) and the AC generators were on the roof right above the rooms. These generators were deafening whenever they kicked in, esp. at night. The busy Hwy. 1 passes right by the motel and the street noise can get loud. So, do keep that in mind if you're noise-sensitive. Sleep wasn't great and that's why I only gave 3 stars. I came without a car and had quite a lot of trouble finding Uber rides. I was told Lyft may be better.

We have stayed here before and it was amazing, family owned and cozy hot spot. I’m not going to lie when I found out it was under new ownership and new employees but... wow I was beyond impressed!! Great place to stay with family. I was in the big room with my daughters for their spring break this year and I couldn’t have asked for better service. Check in was simple and easy The rooms are totally accommodating for family trips and I’d imagine others for solo. But our stay was fantastic, we had the big room right next to the sun deck and the ocean is about a 700 ft walk (if that really)! Great place to stay happy they’re still open during covid. This place went above and beyond— my daughter got bit by something or stung at the beach and the woman at the front desk that evening was able to pull out a first aid kit immediately to help us and accommodate ALL needs. She told me the room we were in was labeled the “party room” 219 and she was very kind, friendly, informative and did anything she could to help us with the sting or bite plus our stay. I can’t remember her name but she works evenings and I believe her name started with a K or Kayla. If she is the one checking you in then you will be in great and safe hands! The Newport Channel Inn is doing better than ever and we cannot wait to come back (minus the bite/sting from the beach) It may look older from the outside but the quality of the feeling of home being away from home, those special employees and the beach right across the street will always have me as a repeat guest!!!

I’ve come here almost 3 years and it never disappoints. Rooms are comfy, there many good restaurants within walking distance and the beach is across the street.There is a nice rooftop patio where you can sit and watch the world go by. They have towels and chairs for you to borrow and the prices are very affordable. I highly recommend.

First off, The manager seems to be running out of his (room?) a disgusting crack den. Loud arguments all night, things smashing and police at the scene. People coming and going like a drug house. My wife was petrified. This is not a safe place to bring your family. Shameful.

This place was dirty & looked like it hadn’t been remodeled in decades. Rugs were totally worn & dirty. Curtains had holes in them. Air conditioner/heater blew up in middle of the night! Walls had holes & dirt on them. While the room was spacious & had a refrigerator, the unacceptable dirtiness/dinginess far outweighed the positives. In addition, the location was quite noisy with traffic sounds all night long & able to hear everything from adjacent rooms including the folks coming in at 1 in the morning. Horrible place to stay!
