Good job! Booked for my Aunt and Uncle who said even though property is a little older it was a 5 star experience. Furnishings are like a nice home rather than cookie cutter business. Will use again in the future.

Date of stay: April 2019
Trip type: Traveled with family

They provide chairs, beach towels, toys and an excellent daily breakfast. There is turn-down service and unlimited freshly baked cookies. The owners are very helpful. Beach is across the street, and pier is walking distance.

Room tip: ground floor was quiet and clean, free parking was key

Colleen,
Having the beach so close is such a wonderful feature of the hotel. I'm happy to hear that you took the chairs/ beach equipment out and that you enjoyed your stay overall. We'd love to welcome you back in the future for another stay!

Staff is very friendly and helpful..... Quaint shore feeling... very well maintained, attention to little details. Great complimentary breakfast, (more than a continental breakfast. ) Amazing view from the rooftop patio. Great location. Free parking which is a big plus in Newport Beach. Lots of complimentary beach stuff for use..... Will definitely be back..... Loved the fresh flowers on the breakfast tables!

Newport Beach, meh. Bay Shores? Wonderful.

Stayed here on a business trip and was absolutely thrilled. It feels like you fell through a wormhole with all the best parts of beach chic from days past.

One block away from the beach, amazing service and not a dang thing I would change. Highly recommend.

We found this place by random searching and we were so happy with our choice. I want to personally thank Ralph for all his help and tips and kindness. He made us feel like family, rather than just customers. Also Donna and Mark were just as friendly too. The hotel is clean, provides free parking , wifi and as well as free breakfast including some hot items too. I would not hesitate to stay here again . I can’t enough say We love this place
