Bay Shores is a stand-out in Newport Beach, and a stand-out in the whole area around Newport. No other property has its home-like features, and friendly, comfortable, and helpful service !

-The reception area has service at the desk 24/7 -- not just someone behind a counter, but people who know the area and are happy to help with whatever residents need in directions or amenities for their stay.

-The rooms are designed for what people actually *want/need*: plenty of lighting, a mini-frig, small safe, and perhaps most notably, bathroom facilities that contain shelves for towels, extra shelves for storage of items, and even a shelf under the mirror, above the sink. Rooms are on the small-side, but they are well-designed - and *comfortable.*

-Complimentary breakfast is served - plus complimentary beverages are available around the clock. Cookies are served in afternoon too.

-And more at no extra charge: Parking is on-site. Newspapers are delivered. Plus movies are available for check-out - as are beach towels and equipment. Really nice -and home-like -is that no extra charges occur for anything besides soda from the vending machine or extra bottled water (beyond the two bottles a day that are provided gratis in the room).

Bay-Shores Peninsula is a stand-out in Newport Beach - *and* it is welcoming place for business travelers, leisure travelers, families, couples, or singles -- of all ages !

Room Tip: Upper floor; quiet location; with partial view of bay.

My mom and I went to this hotel because we were traveling impromptu needed a place to stay but we just happened to notice it out of the corner of our eye. We stopped and we were glad we did! Room was awesome-very plush, wonderful and clean. Our room opened to a beautiful courtyard with a flowering, fragrant hibiscus. At the end of the day in the upstairs balcony rooftop we watched the sunset while we look out over the peninsula. Very nice staff and hard working maid service. We had one bdrm downstairs in courtyard. The old timey elevator is in good condition though so we didn't have to walk up any stairs. The Blue Beet is one of the oldest bars in Newport-a must see.

Room Tip: I liked being on ground floor right out to patio.

This was our 4th or 5th stay here. We love it. We come here once a year to watch baseball at Angels Stadium, but of course also take in the beach, Balboa Island, etc. We love the casual atmosphere and furnishings of this place. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. It is so close to so many things: the beach and harbor, good restaurants, cute shops, a small Whole Foods at Fashion Island. Ralph, Bruce,Warren and the rest of the staff are pleasant and helpful.

Stayed: May 2014

We stayed here for the second time. I must say nothing has changed since last year. Same nice staff, comfy rooms....and well the location...you can't beat that. We flew all the way from europe to stay here for a week. Hopefully we will be back next year. What a relaxing holiday! Thanks to the team of the Bay Shores Pensinsula

This was our second stay at Bay Shores and as we turned off the Boulevard into the car park it really did feel "just like coming home".
There's not much more can be said about Bay Shores that hasn't already been posted.
Location, staff - all are excellent.
We'd headed this way after spending a week in Las Vegas so it was great to be able to borrow a couple of beach towels and relax on the beach with a book after the chaos that is LV.
The staff were even kind enough to accept a parcel for me before we'd checked in.
Would we stay here again? Without a shadow of doubt.
The hotel is so good there was even a Newport Beach resident staying there whilst his home was remodelled.
Many thanks to all the staff, including housekeeping, for making our stay as enjoyable as the previous time.
Oh, and thanks for the 3.00pm cookies.
