Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel Reviews

Loved It!

Westlake Village, CA - July 2015

From the second we walked into the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel, we knew we loved it. We were impressed with the warm and professional front desk service, the breakfast and roof top eating area, the beach chairs/towels/boogie boards, the warm yummy cookies daily at 3:00, our room (we lucked out with the fabulous suite), the nightly bed turn down and chocolates, and the fun old fashioned elevator. Our stay was so enjoyable. Can't wait to come back!

Above and beyond

San Dimas, CA - July 2015

What can I say, this place went above and beyond to make our stay beyond enjoyable. Ralph from the first day we got there was a great help, and really made us feel like we were at a bed and breakfast. They have free beach towels, body boards, beach chairs you can borrow, and not to mention DVD's you can borrow (dvd player included in rooms). One of the big bonuses to this hotel is the view (rooftop) and location (walking distance from everything).

What a lovely place

Derby, UK - August 2015

We travelled from UK and, aware that we were full on visiting friends and family in California and Colorado for a month, we decided to have a mini-break in Newport Beach first, just the two of us. Oh, we are so glad we chose the Bay Shores. We love the luxury of our usual corporate hotels but there are different types of luxury.


Cardiff, UK - August 2015

Perfect is an over-used adjective but in this case, it is the only description. The location is perfect, the hospitality of the front desk and breakfast/maid service is...perfect and the views from the sun terrace are ...sublime!

Perfect Holiday Hotel

London, UK - July 2015

This was our second visit & again we were not disappointed. Perfect location, and staff who cannot do enough for you, but in a warm and friendly way. This time we had a Harbour-facing room, which did mean that we were woken early by the sun, but who wants to sleep late in Newport Beach anyway?

Fabulous stay - again!

Basingstoke, UK - July 2015

We stayed here in August 2013 - and came back for a week in June this year for a well earned rest after completing Route 66. We had a marvellous time again - thanks to Warren and the team. Always helpful and friendly - thanks again for a marvellous time!

Great Hotel. Great Location

Birmingham, Alabama - July 2015

My wife and I traveled to Newport Beach to be part of a surprise birthday party for our daughter set up by her husband. We decided to extend our stay and after reading great reviews, decided to stay at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel. We had planned on taking several day trips, only spending nights at the hotel.

Exceeding Expectations!

California - July 2015

What a nice surprise. Quaint, cute, clean beachy surf hotel. Nice clean rooms with wonderful amenities and special touches like fruit, fresh flowers, and bottled water. Bathroom had nice toiletries, cotton ball, q-tips, etc. They even provide beach towels, boogie boards, chairs etc. Lovely breakfast included, and cookies in the afternoon as well as coffee and tea provided all day.

What a Great Find!

Las Vegas, Nevada - June 2015

What a great find!!! Everyone was very nice and the location is great. They go out of their way to make you happy. Great, great place, please don't change anything, they always have coffee and teas for you day or night and a really nice little breakfast. Thanks for your kindness.

One Word, Service

Shafter, California - June 2015

This place is the best to stay in Newport, this is my third year joining my fiance's family staying here and I will definitely be coming back more often on my own. With large chains weeding a lot of the smaller places with the hometown feel, its nice to have a place like this to stay in OC/LA Area. Ralph and all the staff are beyond selfless and do whatever to serve you the best they can.

Old Newport in a Good Way!

Roswell, Georgia - June 2015

This hotel is like you've stepped back into the 1960s or 70s in a good way. The rooms are well decorated, comfortable and clean. Don't expect anything fancy here though - it's a low key property with wonderful amenities including beach towels, beach chairs and even boogie boards. The location cannot be beat for the price- just a quick 1/2 block from the beach. They also offer a substantial breakfast each morning.

Best Darn Hotel

Palos Heights, Illinois - June 2015

The first minute you walk in you step back in time to a time and place where people cared for each other and are friendly and courteous. The rooms are quaint and cozy and well taken care of. Bathrooms are clean and great water!
