Desk staff were super friendly & helpful, and provided a variety of breakfast items. Rooftop deck was superb!
The room smelled a little funky but we got used to it. This was probably due to an old AC unit & moist beach air. Not a deal breaker.
Staff is great.
The sheets are paper thin and worn out. A two-year construction project next door means that starting at 5:30am, workers and their trucks are arriving with loud construction beginning at 6am.
Close to the beach and the hotel provides beach towels and other beach stuff.
I'm not a fan of disposable ware for breakfast but it seems to be the norm now in so many hotels. A pity really.
Staff was outstanding - accomodating, friendly, helpful. Convenience of location cannot be beat - a short walk to the boardwalk and restaurants New park being built next door Convenient breakfast served each morning
- WiFi would not stay connected on any of my smart phones - Parking is a challenge (not enough spaces) but hotel pays for on the street parking if it becomes necessary
The hotel was central to Newport Pier and it's attractions.
We had a corner room and the Main Street has lots of traffic going by
My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel. Just across the road is 18th Street which is on Newport Beach. We were lucky to be there to see the huge waves caused by the remains of Hurricane Marie. The hotel is a short cab fare from Balboa Island, we recommend a visit to Catalina Island, it's just an hour away on the 'flyer'. Our room was on the small side but the bed was comfortable & the bathroom was clean. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast consisted of coffee, muffins, croissants etc. which is quite adequate. Newport Beach is a wonderful place to visit & we will return to this hotel again no doubt
Amenities and super friendly staff.
I liked everything!
From the the first impression to the last, we were pleasantly surprised , by all the hotel had to offer. We felt like welcome guests.
Staff super friendly and helpful, excellent location next to beach and bay, whole property clean and very cute
Customer service was outstanding!!!
The friendly staff, the awsome cookies and the nice chocolates left on the beds at turn-down. Bay Shores has the look of a hotel BUT the atmosphere of a Bed&Breakfast. It is cozy, warm, and easy to feel at home.
The only issue is parking, which isn't Bay Shores issues. They are willing to help the guest with it, yet Newport/Balboa has that issue. It's the beach, so it's expected.
Breakfast was great. Staff was warm and welcoming.
Room was smaller than we had anticipated. Not a lot of room to sit. The handrail in the stairs going to the roof was unsafe, as I use a cane and have difficulty walking.
It was ver homey.
Everything was spectacular! The staff was so attentive and caring. They call you by name when you walk in the lobby. Service was fabulous, location is perfect, I can't wait to go back!!
Great location. Friendly staff
Everything. This is a brilliant place to stay for couples to families to people wanting to party. It's location is one block from the beach, (not even that far) lots of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. The rooms are modern and made you feel at home. It's the best place I've stayed in my five weeks travels. Breakfast is good, if you like fruit, bread, bagels, muffins and cereal. The breakfast room is open 24hr so can help your self to as much coffee/tea as you like. The also serve home made cookies everyday from 3pm. We got back at gone 6 one day and they had just put a fresh tray out. All free of charge and was a nice treat after long day on the bikes. Don't worry if you forgot your beach towel, body board or beach chairs you can get them all free from reception. :) Bonus for us was that there was laundry facilities $1.25 for a wash and you get the washing powder free from reception. Really worth the money! We enjoyed out stay
Great location, literally a block from the beach. Extremely friendly staff. Free beach equipment rentals, free parking. Clean rooms.
A/C unit very noisy and did not work well. No other complaints!!!
Location, friendly staff, lots of little extra's, lke cookies at 3pm daily!
Bit noisy at night due to main road nearby.
Staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. Room was small but comfortable. Decorations were great.
The elevator kept waking me up early in the morning because of the bell and the door. The door to the elevator was loud when it closed.
good location and very nice hotel. nice decoration and design. cute and good service. everything is provided.
everything was fine. the hotel is very good, you just need to pay the appropriate price for that.
Hotel facilities and location.
Having to go out to get hot food in the evenings
DVDs available to check out. Terrific location, and nice view from the rooftop terrace.
Friendly attitude, roof deck, breakfast, parking, car guy owner.
Although not bad, double pane windows would help traffic noise on streetside rooms
fun, comfy, homey place
some small maintenance issues to take care of
