The location only
The stickey bathroom floor, the black carpets leaving your feet black. The green shower fixtures,the tv that didn't work even after the repair man had to come,the fact they had tables set up early for breakfast right outside our door and how loud they were setting them up early and breaking down late,the flies that a came for those dirty dishes right outside the room door, the less than cheerful staff, this was the most unclean hotel I've ever been in. Even worse then some of those nasty ones in LA on Skid row. No kidding! There's other hotels try those I know I will in the future never stay at this very dirty, loud,broken down hotel. I didn't heed the warning from other people because there were good rating too. But if you stay there make sure you don't reserve 216a or B. I spent a oat a couple hundred per nite. Plus 15.00 a night for parking plus fees and tax. So make sure if they try to put you in those 2 rooms you ask for something else!!! Maybe the other rooms are ok. But nasty. 1 very small window above the bed, room is dark and joins 2 other rooms, doors slamming from neighbors if you want rest, you aren't going to get any! Unless you leave your room.
Location. We had an ocean view room with balcony. The view was excellent, the room was clean and comfortale. My mum, daughter and friend had a family room at back of hotel. Room was very comfortable with two sections so beds were seperated by a wall.
The view from the family room was a brick wall with a great big hole in it. Would accept this for the price and location of hotel though.
how loud the parking lot and intoxicated walkers on the boardwalk
Location was nice
Price, you can stay at a house closer to the beach for less then what we paid per night
It appears that all the rooms are updated and Balboa Inn is located across from the pier and just 50 yards from the shore/ocean, park is across the sidewalk, a cantina, and across the street from Catalina ferries. Many channels on tv and cable movie channels that offered a large variety.
There was only a shower in bathroom, no tub and I could hear drunk guests if my window was open.
We liked the fact we were by the beach. We liked that they have a continental breakfast. We appreciate the cleanliness of the room and that the staff was somewhat nice, but not overly accommodating.
We did not like the fact that we were quoted an oceanfront room, but it was in fact an ocean view room. The balcony outside our room had a ledge that was too tall that you had to stand to see the view. When we sat on the chairs, we could not see the view. Basically, the room that we thought we were going to get, from the description we had read, was not the room that we actually got.
Best centrally located for all the fun in Newport. Bed was super comfortable.
comfortable sleeping and awesome shower and shopping and bars very close by....beach was clean...will be back again
Friendly helpful staff. Always cheerful. Location to Balboa Pier and local souvenier/eating places great.
Window opened onto dining area (no privacy), so it was kept closed with blinds drawn all the time. Other guests' night noise funneled to our room...techno music at 3 am. 3rd party WiFi at additional cost almost unheard of in today's lodgings. No vanity space in bathroom difficult for a woman with any amount of cosmetics

No Wifi Broken Phone - Told too bad. $45.00 Per Day Valet Fee $3.50 Electricity Sur Charge Breakfast was only unripe fruit and kids cereal. Price
Location was just what we were looking for,restaurant was tasty but pricey,all but one of the staff was very friendly
I booked the best room they had cause of the large spa tub but it didn't work (it was our 9 wedding anniversary) tried to start it didn't work called the front desk and got "oh they are just soaker tubs they are unhooked because of the sand and the booking and our website says that they don't work so you should of know" really??? I looked up my booking and their website and both say "spa tubs".so I tried to let it go but then tried to open the windows two didn't work because the crank was stripped out so of 5 windows only 3 worked,then after useing the bathroom a few times we noticed a really bad smell in the toilet room to the point of having to hold our breath to use the toilet,still trying just to have a nice time and not let these bother us until we noticed about 5-8 spots of unpainted patches all over the room mind you this room goes for $500-600 on a regular basis oh well went to sleep late only to be awakened at 5:30 by the trash truck right under us that took almost 25 mins to empty 3 dumpsters???? So we got up and ready to leave go to check out and the " lady" at the desk was OK at first untill she stated that we had been upgraded to a nicer room for free??? I stated that's the room I booked she said no its not we upgraded you???? I KNOW what room I booked so I begin to mention that issues we had with the room and she simple says oh you were upgraded at no cost so why are you complaining? Really?????do you really tell your customers that they are wrong and don't know what they purchased and we gave you a better room at no cost so your should deal with whatever problems with the room I wouldn't stay their again if they paid me we had a good time in Newport but had NOTHING to do with the Balboa inn
Very boutique and comfortable! Proximity to everything. Staff was very friendly and fun. Will definitely come again.
The help with car and luggage. Very very clean. Safe, bar staff was super fun, food was great as well.
My daughter has a very rare nerve dystrophy called RSD. This disease causes extreme pain from any loud or extreme heightened noises. We come to California every 8 weeks from Oregon for dr appoiments. I was raised in NPB and was excited to share a few days to relax before we went home as well as a comfortable place for her to rest during treatments. Tuesday July 22 we were awoke to loud jack hammers I mean so loud the room shook. I contacted the front desk an she explained it was an issue behind your property. Later I asked that the owner or manager call me as well as shared the issue with the kind gentleman when we checked out. I felt assured and comfortable that I would be contacted by the owner as I felt the 2 days I paid for was interrupted to the point of having take my daughter and leave early in the morning to get away from the horrible noise. I felt we should be at least contacted or compensated a bit. I am now back home and have made 3 attempts to contact the owner or manager and have heard nothing. I feel any kind if maintenance be it on the property or close when it is that extreme should warrant at least a call to all visitors with a a warning as the office knew about it even before I called down. I am sorry this happened and disapointed. It was unfortunate. I hope to try to stay again but will call before making any reservation to make sure no major constructions will be going on.
Safety was my major concern as I was traveling alone on this trip. It was wonderful and the staff treated me like a queen. The location is fantastic as you can walk to everything you need and feel completely safe. Eateries, The Balboa Fun Zone, the beach, whale trips, fishing trips, boating ... it is all their with in walking distance. I loved the Valet parking as well. Their on site restaurant had a wide variety of prices and food selections to fit the whole family. The food was excellent. The rooms were newly redone, refreshing, clean, and fun to stay in.
I think the bathrooms need a bit more shelving for us women to put our things on. The new free standing sink was beautiful, but there wasn't enough space for convenience of curling irons and make up etc when using those things.
location excellent, beach front. Walking distance to pier and arcade.
Breakfast was not to our standards
High parking fee
Rooms small no amenities
Location was Excellent, room was clean, staff was friendly
The noise from the hallway can be a little loud at times.
Location! Right off the beach! Once we park our car we walk, jog, roller blade to nice restraunts, or casual dinning. Continental breakfast is included.
The courtyard where meals are served have faded furnishings. Pool and spa are small; not a main feature. Their are two rooms right next to the ourside dining area that are small and dark. We moved from one of these rooms and payed $50 more than expected.
Location was great. Staff was so nice. When I called the front desk for towels and a second time for a hair dryer they were both delivered within 3 min. We split a family room with another couple and it was fine. Also a great little cantina bar across the street.
It's just so pricey, but that's what you get with a hotel right on the beach. Seriously.... Right by the beach
Excellent location. Very clean.
Price of vallet parking.
The staff is very accommodating, and the renovations are beautiful.
Once our room was upgraded to an oceanview room because we were initially taken advantage of and put in a below standard room by the day clerk, the room was fabulous.
being taken by the day clerk like we were idiots. We paid for an upgraded room and were put in a lower grade room on purpose. Both check-Check - in clerks lied to us about the room we booked, each telling us a different story and different lies. In the end, we prevailed with a better room then we had booked, but we're still upset for being taken advantage of. We wanted the room we booked not some musty old room being passed off as the modern room.
