Definitely coming back! From the moment we drove up to the moment we drove away the service was excellent. The room was very roomy and comfortable. Only issue would be PCH is right there and you can hear the traffic. Other than that it was very relaxing and stress-free. We rented a Duffy boat and went around Balboa island which was enjoyable.

Off to college
We were in Newport area to bring our daughter to college at IC Irvine. The staff were so helpful and stored her boxes in the storage area until her move in day. We loved our room and the outdoor areas. Lovely visit!
