Was our second time visiting and it was better than the first! Newport is a childhood beach so it's always fun to go back and visit. The guy that does check in isn't the most welcoming but the ladies we've checked out with have always been nice. Great place and central to wherever you want to be. We park and ride our rental bikes all weekend.
This is a really convenient place to stay. It is just a short walk down the hill from a very nice public beach where families would enjoy the sand and water. It is a short drive from any of the Laguna attractions and restaurants. The rooms have had an obvious very recent and modern renovation and they feel luxurious. Although the property is on the Pac Hwy the buildings are inset away from it so I heard no traffic noise. The proprietor is a super friendly guy who was very accommodating and is clearly committed to making this place a success. I can recommend without reservation.
"Convenient to Balboa Pier/Catalina Ferry & Clean ."
We had a very short stay here due to the airline delays. However, our room was very clean and comfortable and we would stay here again. Young woman at the front counter was helpful. Grocery store and beach very close too. We wanted time to see Newport Beach, Balboa Pier & Island before our several night stay on Catalina Island via the Ferry. Very close to catch Catalina Flyer Ferry.
