What we say about ourselves means nothing unless our guests agree. And while we feel that it’s difficult to capture The Balboa Inn experience in words, the reviews below are a wonderful representation of what it means to stay at our historic oceanfront hotel in Newport Beach, California. After your visit with us, we hope you will agree.

    My daughter and I had a fabulous time staying at the Balboa Inn last weekend. The staff is excellent and we were given a corner room overlooking the main street with a side view of the beach and a balcony. Although,

    Really liked the atmosphere surrounding this hotel! Within walking distance to lots of food choices, shops, ferry and the beach. Very beautiful and always sunny. Really liked the terrace to sit and have my morning

    Outstanding location - right on the beach! We stayed one night in Feb 2015. As soon as we drove up (stop on the street, no access otherwise) we were thrilled to realize it was right next to the beach and literally

    My daughter and I had a fabulous time staying at the Balboa Inn last weekend. The staff is excellent and we were given a corner room overlooking the main street with a side view of the beach and a balcony. Although, the street bar below was very noisy it was still a beautiful remodeled room with lots of light, new bedding and a cedar closet that smelled so good. We had a late dinner downstairs and it was delicious. Thank you for a great stay - we will be back!

    Really liked the atmosphere surrounding this hotel! Within walking distance to lots of food choices, shops, ferry and the beach. Very beautiful and always sunny. Really liked the terrace to sit and have my morning coffee! Bike rentals all over the place for riding around the peninsula.

    We stayed one night in Feb 2015. As soon as we drove up (stop on the street, no access otherwise) we were thrilled to realize it was right next to the beach and literally in the heart of the entire Balboa Beach/Peninsula area. The Spanish style building and decor is beyond charming. A great Mexican restaurant is right across the street.
