“Quick visit to Newport Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

I booked the Best Western Newport Beach Inn for relatives visiting from Norway. Unfortunately, I kept them so busy during their stay they had very little time at the motel. However; they thoroughly enjoyed their stay - once they figured out how to use the toilet and hair dryer! Also, they had no idea the room had a refrigerator. They very much enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast and had special compliments to the lady who made their waffles each morning. Having the beach just across the street was a thrill to them. They all enjoyed their visit and definitely recommend.

If you don't intend to spend your time in a hotel room, this is a good bargain. The room was a bit small, but refer to sentence #1. We were more interested in the fabulous BEACHES so a somewhat small room was no issue at all. It had a mini fridge which was a nice amenity to have. The staff were always accommodating and housekeeping was phenomenal. Had to keep up with my towel usage, but there were always clean towels up front if nothing else. The breakfast is free, but is mostly a carbohydrate fest. I still used it almost daily for coffee, tea, fruit, etc. Parking IS NOT FREE! I don't care what they tell you, it's $5 a day and it's limited. We only had to park on the city street 1 of 6 days. Internet is free and typical for a hotel. (Read: slow and unreliable ;) There is not much opportunity for a view due to the housing across the street so don't think you're going to have an Ocean Front or Beach Front room. You also have to cross the street to get to the beach, but it is a very short walk. If you like the activity and moderate noise, you can stay on the Pacific Hwy side and have an outdoor terrace. It seemed to be used mostly to hang wet clothing to dry because you can't (aren't supposed to) smoke on it. Fabulous Huntington Beach (Surf City USA) is only minutes up the Hwy to the north. Lots of surfing was going on everywhere. Lots of locals could be seen walking from the surrounding neighborhood to enjoy the beach/surf culture. Huntington Beach has a weekly Sunday drum circle that tons of people attended. It was really cool. There were also sidewalk vendors during our stay. A little pricey but definitely a lot of unique items. I recommend trying Chronic Tacos, which isn't far from the hotel and is renowned for great tasting tacos, etc, and is frequented by the surf crowd. Not much room to sit, so plan on taking out unless you get really lucky. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say I'd go back in a heartbeat! It's less expensive than Huntington Beach but is close enough if you just want to visit.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a view or beach front, ocean front. If you don't want noise, don't g...

I found the Best Western to be a great hotel. The staff were excellent. The night front desk agent/manager was very accommodating when we needed to check out early and he put breakfast out 45 min. early. The rooms were clean and were at the comfort level you would expect from a Best Western or Holiday inn etc. There were bikes available for rent and the beach is directly across the street from the hotel. There is a Liquor Store next door where you can buy snacks and water etc. There is a restaurant about one block to the right of the hotel called Big Belly Deli and their pizza is excellent. They also serve an assortment of other choices. For beach access this is a great hotel. The room in the front can be a little noisy due to the hotel being directly on a busy street. The noise did not bother us with the sliding glass door closed. Balboa Island is a short drive from the hotel and there are many activities to engage in from fishing to catching the ferry to Catalina to shopping etc. If you want a more lively area this may not be the hotel for you. Overall I found this to a charming Best WEstern. Very homey and comfortable and the staff very friendly. I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: For partial ocean view stay in the front of the hotel, for a quieter room stay in the back.

My fiancé and I stayed at this Hotel during our trip accross California. The location of the Hotel is really great. It's only a few steps away from the beach (you need to cross a road) which we personally find the most beautiful Beach between Long Beach and Laguna Beach. Only for this we would always stay here again in the future.
The stay is certainly not cheap but with the prime location, the friendly staff, the small convenient "store" at the reception with drinks and snacks and the clean rooms: we thought the return on the price was OK. You also receive complementary chairs, towels and sunshades for the Beach. Don't expect too much from the room, they are very simple (but have all you really need). We have certainly had more comfortable beds in the past. The continental breakfast is what you would expect but it can get quite crowded since the room is really small.

Overall I recommend this Hotel to anyone who wants to spend a few sunny days on the Beach. But try to book a room not facing the busy road and on upper level.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the busy road and on upper level are quieter (are not facing ocean side)

Originally chose this hotel because of it's location and the fact that I also work for Best Western (at another location) so I receive a discount! This hotel has a great location right across PCH to the beach. There are also some great restaurants near the hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff was efficient and friendly. There was a city blackout the first night of our stay....but that's not the hotel's fault :) The only thing that I found a little strange was that there was a daily charge to use the internet in the business center. Thanks for the great service!
