This was our second trip to this area of California but the first time we had actually stayed in Newport Beach. We found this hotel by doing the usual research on Trip Advisor before booking anything and what a find.
The hotel itself is clean, tidy and well located. The staff are even better. It was my wife's birthday during our stay so I had several email communications before we arrived recommending places to eat. Local knowledge is something you can't buy.
Nothing is too much trouble for anybody employed here. Can't get in the car park? Not a problem, they'll help with the parking meter. Feeling a bit hungry? Help yourself to what you find in the kitchen cupboards.
We had a partial sea view room on the third floor that looked like it had recently been refurbished with a large flat screen telly, comfortable bed and more than adequate bathroom.
We weren't surprised to see a Trip Advisor award already sitting on the check in desk.
If we ever get the opportunity to return to Newport Beach I would have no hesitation in booking the Bay Shores again.
