Often, a person needs a vacation to rest after their vacation...This was not the case with our stay at the Bay Shores Hotel. This 25 room hotel has the feel of a Bed and Breakfast. From check-in through check-out, the Hotel and the city of Newport Beach provided a stress free, relaxing environment.
At check-in, we were greeted by a friendly staff and by the smell (and taste) of freshly baked cookies. The room was cozy with a nautical theme. Free internet allowed us to keep in touch. The DISH TV and DVD library provided entertainment at the end of the day.
At the breakfast nook, fresh fruit was always available. In the morning, the continental breakfast provided a great start to the day.
From the Bay Shores Hotel, the harbor was a block north and the beach was a block south. Free beach stuff--chairs, towels, boogie boards, umbrellas--was available. The hotel has a nice rooftop sundeck for those who want a little privacy.
There are many fine restaurants along Balboa Peninsula: we recommend Harborside Restaurant in the Balboa Pavilion.
We also enjoyed the Balboa Ferry ride to Balboa Island--another destination for sightseeing, food and shopping.
This was not our first--or last--stay at the Bay Shores Hotel...We'll be back...
