Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MALUKU NEWPORT BEACH GREAT LOCATION
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 Nick121212 Good value for location
No frills but good location and having breakfast available was convenient.
Odor in the back of the hotel but not noticeable in the halls or room.

We enjoyed a great stay at this hotel. It was ideally located for local attractions and the room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and we found all the staff to be helpful and professional.

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.

R. griffin was not helpful and did not accommodate the wedding block requests. I called 5 times and she never returned my calls. I had to get the groom to call to get put in the wedding block. Many guests that requested the wedding block were not put in it. On another note the sewer smell was almost unbearable at this location. If the problem were fixed I may stay again. Also the police were there several times and a guest was finally arrested and removed from property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Immimi Hotel charged more than quote on website again
Again, we were charged more than the website quote. Like last time this happened, we will probably just have to get over it, however now that I know this is a common practice of the website and hotels I will print out the quote when I make a reservation, since you seem unable to do anything about it.

About average in every respect. Rooms are dated. I found it nice and unique that they have a few designated parking spots for Platinum members, but yet they still charge for them. If they really wanted to recognize the Platinum members, how about waiving the standard parking fee. I parked in the street. Wifi was down on my reservation, I switched hotels because of this. Also very limited channel selection on their tiny TVs, no Comedy Central for example.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZBoater Nice hotel with great location
We have stayed at this hotel in the past and will again in the future. Unfortunately, a repair was being done to a nearby sewer line that allowed an unpleasant odor to come into the room from the outside. I 'm sure that this will be repaired and will not be a future problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunizee Comfort and clean
We found the king sized bed very comfortable. The room was spotless. The only criticism that we would lodge is that there were two bottles of water on the desk. We assumed that they were for our drinking water convenience...we were wrong. The charge for the two plastic bottles of water was $7.00. We feel that a posted sign along with the placement of the bottles would eliminate a charge for which we were unaware.

employees answered all of my questions when I was trying to locate a pharmacy nearby. The location worked out perfect for us as we were attending a wedding across the street at the Horn Blower.

Everyone was most helpful. Loved the breakfast. My only complaint is the stairs leading to the second floor even when I took the elevator. Hard to get my suitcase up those steps. Maybe change to a ramp???? Otherwise, all was great. Nice location to things.
