Balboa Bay Resort was everything I could have asked for and more. My plan was to take my mom and dad back to Newport for a quick holiday. It had been nearly 50 years since my dad had been to Newport and the Pier so I wanted to make it special. This was the hotel that fit the bill. I travel here for work a lot and love this area.The hotel is situated on the bay near the Ferrari, Pagani and McClaren dealerships. The hotel is within a 7 min drive to Newport Pier but close to many other hot spots in the area. Our room was upgraded to the members side and had a wonderful view of the bay and all the yachts. We had a top floor balcony that overlooked the pool and lawn area. The bathroom was spacious and the overall room amenities were top notch. My folks both commented that the place looked fairly new. It was a Friday night that we stayed over so we even got a view of the concert on the lawn on the member side. My folks spent most of the evening on the balcony listening to 80's rock music, having a grand time. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a convenient yet posh place to stay in Newport.

Take me back to Balboa

Best business trip in a long time! A lovely bottle of wine in the room, delicious halibut thru room service and watched the big boats docked on my patio as the twinkle lights came on.
