Mom and I did a "bucket list" two day trip to Newport, shopping all day one day at South Coast Plaza and Crystal Court, stayed at the Bay Shores that night and shopped Fashion Island the next day. A friend warned me away from the peninsula this time of year due to " a lot of partying". However, after reading that the hotel does not do reservations for anyone under a certain age and seeing all the great reviews, we decided to go for it. Included breakfast and cookies in the afternoon helped, too! We were very pleased with the location, the property, the staff (and cookies!). Everything was neat and clean, parking a little tight but worked out on the street nearby. A quick walk to the beach for an early morning walk after coffee in the room. Did I mention the cookies? Breakfast of cereals, juices, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, muffins, toast. Coffee available in the lobby most of the day.
We had a very quiet room with two double beds. I'm sure fellow travelers have the potential to make or break the stay with inconsiderate noise, but we lucked out.
Thanks for a great stay Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel! Hope to be back again sometime.
