Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chemor Great Location
We stayed here for one night. The staff was very friendly and helpful as far as giving directions to certain areas, otherwise we did not need to interact with them due to the shortness of our stay. It is a great location to quickly tour Newport Beach, Balboa, Corona del Mar etc.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by elhz Fine for a budget hotel
This was fine for an inexpensive hotel in a very expensive town. The room was clean, bed comfortable. What I didn't like was the heater/air conditioner unit was so loud I wouldn't have been able to sleep with it on. The room was cold and I asked for extra blankets which they brought me right away - that was much better than turing on the unit. I would not want to stay there at the time of year when it was either so hot or so cold you had to turn it on. This problem is really no worse with this hotel than other hotels with the same type of units, they're all too loud.
There were a reasonable number of breakfast choices but I didn't like any of them enough to be able to eat them. I ended up going out to eat at Denny's.
The location was ok if you need to be in that part of town. It was on a busy, noisy street but we were in the back so the noise didn't bother us at all.
The staff were very nice.

WE enjoyed our stay at this property very much. The hotel staff was more than pleasant and very helpful to us as we were not that familiar with the area. Would certainly recommend staying here.

The interior is a little worn and out dated. Walking down the hallway to the rooms looks like walking into a 70's motel.
One positive is that it is in walking dostance to really good seafood restuarants

It's located in the right place, and for the price you can't go wrong.

Overall an enjoyable experience but had to pay for parking...not a big deal, but this wasn't mentioned until I received the bill.

Close to Electra cruises. Staff friendly and helpful but only one on duty at desk at a time. Walking distance to good food and drinks.
Breakfast not worth being included if they can lower the room rate instead.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skidog1000 This is the spot
This property is right in the middle of Newport Beach, and right on the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). Great reataurants nearby, and you are right at the yacht harbor. This is California, and a great location to explore it from.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cndihrtrn BOOKED FOR A NEWPORT HARBOR WEDDING
This is the closest hotel to the avalon yacht club for my sons wedding. My original reservation was at a more expensive property down the street but changed as the wedding party was staying here. I booked a two queen bed suite which was perfect. Room was clean, spacious. Two bathrooms. I would recommend this to anyone. Staff courteous, breakfast was fine, nice choices. Nice value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosemary Decided to stay second night
We always try to book at Holiday Inn Express because of the overall consistency of good service and nice rooms. This time was no exception. We originally booked for one night however the location was perfect and even though we were going to drive to the Queen Mary the next day we decided to stay at the same hotel because it was worth the drive. The staff was awesome.
