Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel

Reviewed 7 May 2011

We didn't make plans in advance -- just drove around and looked for a hotel. This one looked nice so we stopped in and asked if there were rooms available. The room was very nice. The windows opened and we could get fresh air. The shower was good -- enough water to shower easily. It was quiet and we slept well even though it is on a main street. There is a small elevator which was helpful, as I had knee surgery recently. There is a roof deck overlooking the ocean with tables and chairs. The hotel provides beach towels and boogey boards and other things you might want to take to the beach. Computer and printer in the lobby for guests to use. Breakfast available in their kitchen/dining room and they provide a variety of items including fresh fruit and snacks that are available to guests throughout the day. We'd definitely stay here again.

Would definately stay there again. Was traveling the coast and stayed in some ritzier hotels, very exhausting. This was 3 nights of relaxation and nice to go outside your door and your car and ocean is right there. It was perfect. Great coffee and tea and breakfast. Oh and the free WI/FI was just another plus. Two money savers. I was paying 6 dollars for a cup of tea at the W in San Diego. Great place. The only negative thing I can say about the place is that the bedding was a bit old and out dated, it was clean just not real cozy. if I was to go back and stay for a week I probably would bring my own. It would not keep me from staying again.

What a lovely little place. Spotlessly clean rooms, great DVD library and of course fantastic staff. Just the right vibe here. Friendly, helpful and genuine. Loved the little continental B & B style breakfast. Much nicer than we had expected. Decor was not really my scene, but I admire that they've done their own thing, and not gone with the deafult bland hotel decor of safe white and shades of beige. We'd definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it.

Simple but perfect. The attention to detail is what makes this place prefect. I travel to Newport Beach once a year and ALWAYS stay at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel. The room has always been spotless. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms even have that extra mile touch with crown molding, clean paint, clean carpeting, etc. The simple breakfast is a great start to the day. Don't underestimate this place. Kids will love the beach right across the street too.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite on 3rd floor...

We stayed here on recommendation from Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint,we loved it.Lots of little touches & fine attention to detail that you don't often find in many places unless paying much more than this.
The smell of freshly baked goods wafting thru the hotel in the afternoon is fantastic,the breakfast is good,parking is made easy & free in a location that's an utter nightmare for it,the rooms were lovely & comfy & the DVD player in the room & DVD selection in the lobby were a great touch. Touching distance of the main beach & also a sheltered bay beach in the other direction. Plenty of good eating/drinking options close-by & the place has a great chill-out vibe.
My favourite touch: Chairs & tables outside the rooms on the walkways,one of each of which was a rocking chair! Oh,and free PC internet access!
Thoroughly recommend.

Great inexpensive hotel right in Newport beach. The customer service is fantastic, the 3pm snacks and continental free breakfast are great perks. This isn't a posh hotel, but it's very nice and clean in a great location one block off the beach. They let you use their beach towels, chairs, toys etc for free and there is free parking.
