“A Quaint change from the Plastic Hotels!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Stayed at the Doryman's Inn and we just loved it!! We stayed in room 9, it was small for the amount payed per night but, it had a door that opened to the balcony where we were able to sit at any time to relax and enjoy the sites of Newport Beach. It also allowed us to have friends over to sit, get reacquainted and not feel shut in the room!!! Staff very helpful and friendly and location was great and if you are lite sleeper ask for another room away from the street!!! Though I enjoyed the atmosphere!! Go and eat at the Il Faro restaurant quint and good service...and after go to the Blue Beet Bar a few doors down for live music, dancing and drinks!!!
Down side the wifi is bad!!!! But the fireplace in the room made it worth while putting up with it!!!

Room Tip: Room 9 has a privet door that opens to balcony

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and had a great time. We took advantage of the 'deal' that was offered in conjunction with a very special dinner at 21 Oceanfront which is located directly below the hotel. We had the corner room and had an amazing view of the pier as well as the beach. The noise from the street was a little loud, but you have to expect that when staying on the beach in Newport. It's kind of a party atmosphere. There are a lot of nice restaurants as well as beach bars nearby, so it's a great place to come and relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach.

Room Tip: The corner room was a bit small due to it's location at the 'point' of the hotel, but it...

Having a window to relax in makes a big difference in Newport Beach. You can relax and look out at the ocean. We've been staying here for years and love it. Friendly staff, nearby ammenities, reserved parking all make it a great experience. Eat at Sol or Crab Cooker. BreaKfast is lacking, but go down the sidewalk to Mutt Lynches.

Room Tip: Room 8 is best. Away from noise of street.

An ideal location for enjoying the open window beach breeze and sounds. The rooms are immaculately furnished in early US antiques. In addition the beds are well kept and very comfortable. My stay was a bit out of season so most of the hotel was empty. The Continental breakfast we decent and severed near the balcony. There is complementary WiFi and decent for business work. The value is just ok based on price, but very nice place.

My husband and I are originally from Newport Beach and are very famiiliar with the area. We had always wanted to stay at the Doryman Inn and thought my husband's birthday would be the perfect occasion to return to Newport Beach to celebrate. The hotel is in a beautiful building, and the rooms are nicely decorated. The hotel is located in an area with many great bars and restaurants which suited us perfectly. That's where the good ends. The bed was beyond awful. It was so uncomfortable. It was lumpy and sagged in the middle. Neither my husband nor I slept much at all. By 5 a.m. we gave up trying. Due to the lack of sleep I ended up with a horrible cold and I felt miserable. But it doesn't end there. The breakfast was cold cereal and bland store-bought muffins. The parking situation was so bad, that instead of leaving our car with a clueless valet in a too-small parking lot, we ended up paying for metered parking so that our car would survive the night in tack. I tried to speak with the manager prior to departure but was told that she "just left" and would be "unavailable the rest of the day". I left my phone number and asked that she call me, but she never called. I later sent a letter to the manager describing the awful accommodations, but I never received any reply, by mail or phone. For the high price that one pays for a room at the Doryman Inn, a comfortable bed, decent parking, and a tasteful breakfast shouldn't be too much to ask for in return. Take it from a former local, do not stay here.

I loved the Inn. The lady at the front desk was so sweet and accomodating. She really cares about the guest comfort. She was there when we checked in, there when we went to bed, and there when we checked out. Our room was very nice (room 2). It looked out onto the peir and the ocean. I must admit I didn't know what a Roman tub was until we stayed at the Doryman, but I wasn't disappointed. The gas fireplace and old books were a nice touch. The bubble bath products smelt great. If you are looking to be in a convient location, this is the place to stay. We didn't have to walk more then a couple of feet out of the Inn's doors to find bars and restaurants. The restaurant 21 Oceanfront, had an amazing view and great food (there is a dress code). A couple staying at the Inn didn't bring dinner attire, so the Innkeeper arranged for the restaurant to cater to then on the large deck with the beach view. Like I said the Innkeeper bent over backwards to make people happy. This was our 10th anniversary and the Doryman's staff definetly made it special.
