Historical Traveler Reviews Newport Beach Hotel & Suites

Perfectly fine

from

i stayed at the inn at newport beach for 1 night in april with my husband and 14 yr old. we checked in with a pleasant front desk clerk who asked if we wanted a 2 room suite for no extra charge! the hotel is old and slightly run down looking but fine. the suite was acceptable and we had an ocean view from both rooms. the morning continental breakfast was perfect. Some of the earlier complaints was that it is not right on the beach. this is true and you do have to walk across a road to get to the beach. it is on the outskirts of newport so the walk into town is a long one. We were looking at St. George's prep school and the closeness was perfect for us. It is near the mansions and would be a fine hotel if the price is right for you otherwise look for something in the heart of newport.

Average Hotel - Fair Price

Let me first thank everyone for there candid reviews. I stayed at the Inn at Newport Beach this past weekend 2/18/05 - 2/21/05. The hotel as many other people pointed out, is not directly on the beach as the website picture suggests. It is located directly across from the beach on the north side of Memorial Highway. The Hotel is however the closest hotel to the beach in the Newport area from what I can sees I have been to Newport many times and stayed just about everywhere. This has included stays at the Marriott, Hotel Viking, Vanderbilt Hall, The Chandler Inn, and many other higher end hotels/inns as well. The following is my review of the hotel:

- The hotel is a very affordable hotel and was very clean and a good value for the money.

- The rooms are basic but clean. They are about the equivilent of a Days Inn.

- The shower was actually great. Very hot and good water pressure. I found nothing wrong with the showers

- Food/Breakfast. The food was edible and continental as the website suggested. It was perfect to satisfy you after waking up on your way out the door the day. It was certainly not a full breakfast or anything fancy but decent considering it was "FREE"

- The location was great it was very close to the mansions yet far enough away from downtown touris area of downtown. It was a five minute drive or cab ride to downtown shopping and restaurants.

- The view was great. I had a room overlooking the bay and it was beautiful to look at in the evening or in the morning when the sun came up. .

- The help were very accomdating and extremely pleasent for my entire stay.

The hotel is a Days Inn from the 30's It was a fairly decent hotel for the price and in the summertime it would be he best place to be for the beach. If you are someone who is going to Newport for a romantic getaway and high end treatment this is NOT the place for you. If you plan on not being in the room and want to get away for a cheap weekend and still enjoy all Newport has to offer, this place will do you fine. Enjoy your stay if you dare otherwise best of luck with your stay at Vanderbilt Hall and/or The Chandler Inn.

Good Luck

Perfectly fine!

We spent Thanksgiving of 2004 here and thought the hotel was just fine. It was clean and well kept up, if a little worn around the edges. (The building is 60+ years old, after all!) We did request a different room due to a leaky shower in the first room we were given, and the front desk staff was very gracious and accomodating. The continental breakfast was also good, with plenty of variety and nothing stale as far as I could tell! The hotel was wonderfully quiet, even with a busy street right outside, and the beds were very comfy, too. (I slept like a rock all three nights we were there.) Also, I have dreadful dust and mold allergies and developed no symptoms at all staying there. It was a good "base of operations" for our sightseeing as it was very convenient to downtown Newport and the Bellevue Ave mansions, and the ocean was just steps away from the front door. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for someplace quiet and cozy, and we would happily stay there again.

Old hotel on busy street....water problems...but was clean!

from

I am planning another trip back to Newport for the weekend, and came across the reviews for this place. I stayed here the weekend before Christmas in 2003. It was not at all what I expected. The hotel is pictured as though it is beachfront...this is not the case! It is across from a very busy street, and then there is a public parking lot, and THEN the beach!

My husband and I stayed in a jacuzzi room, and it looked really great when we got there..the room was a good size and it was very clean. Then we attempted to fill the jacuzzi and there was slightly brown-tinted water coming out. Same with the shower! When we called down to the desk, we were told to let it run for 10 minutes first. By this time, the water was barely warm, and still had tints of brown. We had to let it run a solid 20 minutes before it was clear enough to shower. I was not comfortable sitting in the jacuzzi... the collection of that much water showed the brown even more!

We had booked with Priceline - so we were stuck with the room. I would NEVER stay here again. The room itself wasn't that bad -it was very clean, and breakfast was a nice touch, but the brown water isn't something I would want to deal with again.

Worth the price

from

Well worth the money

If you like to spend more for three times the price you can go to the wharf and pay $20 just for parking.

The rooms have great views of the ocean across the street and it is great to have coffee in the morning.

A great place for runners.

You can go one block and pay $1,200 per night for a room if you like something more elegant.

Never again!

from

The indifference and plain rudeness of the staff and management ruined a great weekend. Making it worse, they charged top dollar for what were clearly mediocre accomodations. Despite the clever photography on their publicity shot, the beach is actually across a busy street. Would never stay here again.

Satisfied for the money

from

The Inn was not what I pictured (the website looks like you're right on the beach, but you're really across the street from Easton Beach (a small public beach) but the rooms were clean (a bit small) and the bathroom was very nice for the price we paid (which was fairly cheap compared to other hotels on the same dates). The staff was very nice, parking was free. The location was great, we had a view of the Cliff Walk and mansions from the inn and the ocean was right across the street. Bellevue Ave (mansions) was a 3 minute drive away and the wharf area was 5 minutes away. The free breakfast was bagels, muffins and instant cereal with juice and fresh fruit. If you're not spending a lot of time in the room, it serves it's function. If you're looking for romantic, you may want to choose a bed and breakfast.

Worst Stay I've Ever Had

from

During my stay, I had no hot water, a noisy, busy street-side room, and a stale continental breakfast. To top it all off, someone caught a mouse in the restaurant while I was eating breakfast one morning. I would NOT recommend staying here.

Excellent clean and great deal!

from

We have stayed many times at the Inn at Newport Beach. Between the Summer and Winter and Spring and Fall. The rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful. The FREE contin. breakfast is very nice. You have your choice of many types of coffee, bagels muffins danish cereal hot or cold. Not sure why anyone would complain about it. On top of all this you can run down in the morning and grab anything and if you don't want to stay in the dining room you can bring it back to your room.

Newport Inn at the end of September

from

The Inn at Newport Beach was very nice but unfortunatley the free continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. i would stay here again but only after the summer rush.

He was a navy man and had a wonderful roof view of the harbor. We did part of the house tour and then went on a 1 hour staff tour of the back of the house with a guide. They had lots of nooks and crannies. For example, the house was ...
