Just spent one night at the Bay Shores to see if it might be a spot to bring family. The staff was great, and the home-like feeling are nice touches. We brought a couple of movies to the room since the weather turned cold and found the lending library to be very complete! The breakfast is pretty standard fair for no-cook style breakfast, the cookies in the evening a nice touch and all of the beach equipment to borrow would have been wonderful, but it was too cold and windy to enjoy the day on the beach other than a nice run during midday. The location is really great and the beach is pretty. The room we had was fairly small, but we expected that. The old hotel elevator with the cage door is fun and the sun decks would be great for an extended stay. I really feel this hotel goes the extra mile in service and trying to create something special and yet affordable. I will say that the walls are VERY thin and our neighbors came in super late and left very early and banged and boomed so loudly our sleep was interrupted twice in one night until they calmed down and lowered their voices and stopped putting things in drawers. It almost sounded like a work crew was in the next room if you didn't know better. The check-out is early (11am) and the wireless did not work on the third floor the entire stay so if you don't mind using a cord for internet, that's not really a problem, just something to mention. The hotel is charming and the staff helpful and friendly. I really liked what they are trying to do at this hotel. Very nice "extras" at a reasonable price and the best location in Newport Beach in this price range!
