Positives: The room was clean and nicely appointed. It is in the center of the peninsula, close to the beach, restaurants, bars, etc... Prices are reasonable. Negatives: There is very little to filter the noise from the street. The parking lot is small and may not be able to accommodate larger vehicles. Overall: This is a good place to stay...

I stayed there for 3 nights while in town on a business trip. The room was cute but ok. The air conditioner didn't work that great but I dealt with it. The coffee offered in the room was horrible. There were flying bugs in my room all 3 days so I spent my time killing them. No hooks to hang...

Popped to Newport Beach from Palm Springs for two days and wanted to stay overnite near the Beach.. the little Gem came to our attention as we were doing a search... it was awesome... pull up... check in... move bags to room... then grab the 'free' bikes and off to the Beach Board walk!! Loved it ... no hoopla... easy...

The rooms were clean and acceptable but the best perk this little hotel had were the bicycles and beach gear available at no extra cost, plus the fantastic location... just a few blocks off the beach. Since we flew in, we didn't pack Beach gear so the fact that the hotel had it made our experience more fun. We rode...

Compared to other hotels in the area, I though this was good value for it's location. We had a room on the west side of the hotel, so were not immediately next to northbound Newport Blvd, and the road noise wasn't bad. The room was nicely updated.

We stayed here for a leg of our honeymoon in October. It was a 5-10 min walk from Newport Beach/Pier. The price was excellent and the reviews seemed okay so we booked it. You get what you expect, it's not the lap of luxury hotel but it will do for 1 or 2 nights stay. The location is central to...

Spent two sleepless nights here. First, there was a party in the adjacent room which started where I was awakened by pounding on my door at 1am. As my neighbors yelled, screamed and carried on, I called the front desk 6 times. No answer. When he finally answered, he did nothing to stop the racket. I had no choice but...

We truly enjoyed our stay! The room was very comfortable. The location to the beach and to many restaurants was only a short walk away. But the favorite part of our stay was taking the complimentary bikes out and riding all over! We never used our car once after we arrived. It was a great stay, and we will definitely...
