Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Otter13 Great front desk staff. Very nice, comfortable room.
I would gladly stay at this property again when in the area. The stay was very nice during a business trip which can be very stressful...So, it was a positive experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Job Seeker-Sunset Newport was about average
We checked in early to a very friendly staff and the amenities were quite good. The children felt the pool was quite small and was overlooking the parking lot which was not so private, however, they enjoyed the pool to themselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Merna1 nice and well maintained hotel.
This is a very good place to stay at and also leave your car when going on the Flyer to Catalina. There is however, not very many places to eat that you can walk to near by. There are a couple by there are very expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessInOrangeCounty Phenomenal Breakfast; Exceptional Service
I was thoroughly impressed with the breakfast selection. The mattress was pretty hard, which is the only real negative of our experience. But we will be targeting Holiday Inn Expresses for our future travels--who knew?!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CDbayy Loved it.
Nice hotel in the heart of Newport. Walking distance to many cool restaurants and bars. Easy access to everything. We stayed there with a wedding party and everyone seemed to like the hotel. Nice hearty breakfast in the morning. I think if you join the Holiday Inn rewards program the breakfast is included with the room.
Great home base from which to explore the area.
We had one minor issue with our room and the front desk staff was on it immediately and corrected the problem to our complete satisfaction. Very helpful and friendly staff.

I stayed for 2 nights. The best thing was the included breakfast. There were lots of choices and it was well maintained! The front desk staff was lovely - they helped my husband print out something and lent him their tape roll when he needed tape.
The room was quiet and the bathroom clean and worked well. We had a crib in the room, too, as requested, when we arrived. Great stay!

My wife and I decided to get away for the weekend. Newport Beach, CA is a great place to visit. Location is on famous Pacific Coast Highway (PCH 1). South is Laguna and North is Huntington. Take a drive on PCH to enjoy the scenery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BugBoo Mad Wizard
This inn is more than decent, especially for the price in Newport Beach. I had two issues, though -- the room coffee maker is one of those for one cup -- no coffee pot, and I like to mix both decaf and regular and keep adding water to blend the two, garnering two half-cafs in the process. I felt like a mad scientist trying to do that in little single cups with a tiny coffee maker. The hotel's breakfast room coffee was good, though.
The other issue was herculean: the PBS station was unavailable for a while -- on the Downton Abby night!! Enough said...
Over all, though, it was a good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gina07 Great for the price & location!
Overall I had a very nice stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly & check-in was a breeze! My only comment was the room - when I first arrived in my room, it was very hot & muggy. Would have been nice for the air to have been on prior to my arrival. Additionally, there was a pretty ronchy smell in the bathroom. I couldn't point my finger to what it was, but it wasn't pleasant :-/
But again, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! It's great value and a great location!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tammy S. Smelt like a sewer
We travel a lot for business and pleasure and often stay at The Holiday Inn Express. This one however, was lacking the same sort of quality we're used to. Although the location is great, the hotel smelt like a sewer. Initially I thought it was because we were near the ocean but then quickly realized there must be a sewer leak somewhere in the back. It was horrible and our room smelt bad also. The rooms were ok but not clean. We found a hair on the floor in our bathroom and the bed had NO padding on the mattress. We were sleeping on the sheet up against a hard mattress. It was just so far down the scale compared to other holiday inns we've stayed at. I would categorize this more like a motel 6. Breakfast omelets were ice cold also. Right out of the refrig. You've been warned....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by everyrosehasitsthorn Great service - rooms par to average
The staff at this Holiday Inn was excellent and very amenable.
The rooms (unfortunately) were not so much. We had no tv for 2 days, we had to switch rooms because of the musty smell (which we had in our second room as well) and the air conditioning units were loud/noisy. The breakfast food was sub-par as well (powdered eggs, greasy sausage, stale biscuits). The hot tub had a "film" on the surface that stuck on your body when you left.
We stayed for 6 days -- to the staff's credit, they credited us one night's stay for some of the inconveniences.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lovetheroad Good but...
I have been staying here for the last month except for weekends. I end up getting a different room with each week's visit. For the most part I got rooms that were quite functional. I only need it for sleeping but I work early and late and need the WiFi. This is not high speed WIFI by any means. I am a business road warrior. I really need to have high speed internet access. Some of the rooms do okay the others were horrible. The bad ones had 2 or 3 bars. I ended up breaking out my out VZW Mifi and burned up my data plan. They said nothing was wrong but I knew better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeeper1965 Great time but bad smell!!
We checked in a little early and the room wasnt ready but no big! We left our bags with the front desk and off we went to have some lunch. We came back by 2pm and the room was ready. As we walked into the bottom floor towards our room from the back entrance, whew...The smell of sewage was intense.
Luckily, the smell stayed in the hall way. Great room, no issues what so ever. We stayed a few nights and unfortunately so did the smell for the duration of the stay. Again no a big deal and it wont keep us from going back. We found Billy's on the Beach across PCH and that was a huge plus!!
See you soon Newport!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sally6 Great location, helpful staff
Hotel location is very good. Whilst it is not a luxury hotel, it had everything I needed - spacious room, clean, easy access and parking. The inclusive breakfast choice was much more extensive than I expected, and very good. As a lone traveller from Europe, I felt safe and secure during my stay, and the staff were very polite, helpful and supportive.
I would stay here again.
The only minus point for me was the pool, advertised as heated and for outdoor use all year, was freezing! But the hot tub was good.

The room, service, breakfast all met my expectations. The location is great. However, there was a sewer smell that was outside and came inside the hall and room that was not pleasant.

I stay HIE whenever possible while traveling. My work hours keep me out over night, normally not returning to my room until 6 or 7 a.m. When I arrived at the hotel after 19 hours of work my reservation had been cancelled and the desk had trouble finding it and reinstating it. I have never had this trouble before and not had it since. I am at the HIE in Costa Mesa now, a few miles away, and am happy to be there. A contemptuous look from someone who is there to accommodate you is too much when underfed and sleep starved.
