Holiday Inn Express Newport Beach

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Looks like the hotel has been recently remodeled. Housekeeping and breakfast crew was very courteous and helpful.

Room was not clean. Coffee pot filthy, stains on counters, top of TV appears to have a months worth of dust on it, inside of microwave had splatter stains inside, door to refrigerator unable to close, tub safety strips totally worn off, so wet tub floor was unsafe. Complained to front desk, but still not cleaned the next day. Very apathetic, young staff. Parking rates vary depending upon who you ask among staff, not clearly stated on website. They try to charge $15/night to self park, but the in-room booklet states $12/night. Breakfast meats=sausage only- no bacon, butter was frozen, unable to spread on anything No whole milk for coffee, no whole milk for sale. Pancake machine broken, lobby computer broken. Requested to transfer to Costa Mesa, Orbitz declined, but staff said that Orbitz told them it was OK and would call me. Never did. I called Orbitz to complain and of course its located in Pakistan or some similar foreign country and the call center sounds like a frat party with lots of laughing and yelling. Stains on drapes and furniture. Practically impossible to enter or exit due to excessive traffic on road. Overall, the place is poorly managed and run down. Also, dead rats in bushes around parking lot.

Nice simple hotel. Clean, lots of parking, and very good breakfast served till 9:30 am M-F and till 10am Sa and Sun.

Our stay was mostly comfortable and the room was nice and clean and the staff was friendly. The best part about our stay was the pool, hot tub and the wonderful breakfast every morning! The only downfall was that there were noisy neighbors around us the last two nights and they also filled the pool and hot tub area making it not very welcoming. Other than that the location was great and we had a nice relaxing trip!

I have lived in Newport most of my life and moved away a few years ago..... for the money this is a great hotel...nice location...this is the only place I stay when I come back to visit.

Excellent service that started with our check in which included a simple introduction to the hotel ementities, breakfast hours and specific room requests. Also mention about the $12 parking fee. Honest and welcoming first impression. Room had everything a traveler would need... Frig, microwave, coffee maker, iron. Breakfast was better than expected as compared the other hotel with free breakfast. Very substantial. Not just pastries. They had omelets, sausages and a pancake making machine. Location was excellent with easy highway access. Multiple eateries within walking distance. Many are just 1 block away. Great hotel for an weekend getaway.

From beginning to end! The welcoming staff, the cute lobby , and our room everything was clean, welcoming and organized. The location was perfect, we walked a lot, breakfast was amazing. I know I will be back & will be staying there .

. . . across Coast Highway from harbor. Chose it for location and price and was pleasantly surprised. Appointments are above average, quiet surroundings and accessible to area attractions and Orange County Airport. It was a relaxful three days. Staff were helpful with local attractions. Would return in the future. Local food choices were good. fjm

Great stay for a night. Easy access and also a great location. Love Newport area

Super nice admission lady,good breakfast. Had a hard time finding the place because of small, low placed sign. Enjoyed our stay.

Happened to stay when a lot of construction was taking place.

Staff seemed unprofessional and ignorant to detailed questions. We were told that the entire hotel underwent a renovation that was just finished a week ago, which was a pleasant surprise.

Very nice neighborhood. Felt safe and slept well. Clean rooms and a good continental breakfast. Would definitely go back

Hotel was under remodeling. Staff was very nice, but no one went in after the first day to make our beds or take the used towels out.

Stayed here with teen while touring UC Irvine. Great locale, near campus and beach. Clean. Good sleep. Parking is tight.

Great value. Kind and compassionate staff as I am being treated at the local Hospital and they truly cared that my stay was everything you want in a smaller hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

My friends and I wanted a quick little getaway to the beach and this hotel was perfect- room for each of us, clean, comfortable, nice staff, pool was open until 10 pm (great to relax your skin in the evening after a sunny day), nice breakfast options and even served free pancakes until midnight! We definitely enjoyed our stay and wouldn't think twice about coming back here next time we're in Newport!

Reasonable place to stay. Decent location. Close to the beach. And Away from the City noise. Breakfast was good.

Check in was flawless, room was clean, AC & heating was fully operational. Beds were comfortable and offered either a firm or soft pillow.
