“Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

While it is not on the beach it is a short walk across the street. Hotel provides towels, boogie boards, chairs and a few other toys. Front end staff and housekeeping staff very friendly and gave great recommendations for restaurants and surfing.
Room was standard size to slightly larger than normal hotel, and spotless. Refrigerator and microwave too. Liquor store/grocecies next door and bike rental shop, breakfast cafe on the other side.
Motel let us use towels and beach stuff the day we left and also let us park our car in parking lot as we spent another day surfing and beaching it.
Cant wait to come back...

Room Tip: All seemed good to me

Just spent 10 days at this location to recoup after surgery at Hoag Hospital.The staff was so accommodating and friendly. The price charged for this location was excellent. The beach is across the street and there is a great choice of restaurants within walking distance. We stayed in the newly remodeled Handicap accessible room and it was perfect for our needs. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights, very nice. Great location right across from the beach and parking is Included, parking in the Newport area turned out to be a pain. We did NOT rent bikes but that looked like the way to get around. The hotel has beach towels/boogie boards/ a few chairs/umbrellas for guests to use for free. The room has 2 queen beds and the sink/bathroom area was quite spacious.
This is not a luxury resort but it is by far the best value. I would go back again.
On a side note: We ran into a few restaurants that only took cash, it was a little strange in this day and age that debit or credit cards not accepted.

This is absolutely our new go-to hotel in Newport Beach. We had looked at this place before but thought it may be too far away from the Crab Cooker. Not at all. This location is actually far preferable over hotels nearer Newport Pier. It is close enough to walk or bike all the way to the Wedge (Newport Harbor) but distant enough to be a calmer, cleaner area of beach and neighborhood. It’s also located just a stone’s throw from at least two fabulous restaurants.
The previous reviews are spot-on regarding the terrific staff. We met three different people during our stay and they were all friendly, efficient and professional.
The hotel room itself was clean (most important) and surprisingly spacious. AC worked great, water pressure was great and the toilet and shower are separated from sink (handy). The room also had a good size (mini) fridge and a microwave.
The hotel supplies everything you could need for the beach, towels, chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards. Really a nice touch. We brought out own bikes but there is a bike rental right next door that had a pretty steady stream of customers for the 3 days we visited.
The hotel also has a nice upstairs deck with lounge chairs, tables, etc. Even the parking was impressive (availability and space wise).
There is no doubt we will stay here every time we return to Newport Beach; this place is a real find!

Love this place. Right across from the beach. It's a no frills place but very clean and nice staff. There's a bicycle rental place right next door and we rented bikes for cheap. 24 hours for $15.00. Also a great little restaurant next door serves pretty good breakfast. Friendly atmosphere.

The room was very clean, and I am very particular on cleanliness. We had room 227 and it was very quiet and looked out over a little park. The motel is old but updates had been made. Only one block from the beach and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. This is a great bargain and sure to please families that want to spend time at the beach as they furnish towels, chairs, umbrellas and body boards. I would highly recommend for an affordable place to stay.

Room Tip: Far end of hotel is away from the street noise. Room 227 was very quiet.

Perfect little hotel if you just want to stay at the beach in Newport without spending a ton of money. The hotel lets you borrow beach towels, beach chairs and body boards. A walk across the street and you are at the beach. Rooms are clean and updated. Ours had a microwave and a refrigerator. The hotel is located on busy PCH, so bring earplugs if you need them to sleep.
