Lonely Planet review
This three-story, reimagined motel is ready to flex some surf-themed muscle. From Endless Summer surfing murals and complimentary fresh-baked cookies, free rental movies and a 360-degree-view sun deck, Bay Shores is beachy, casual and customer-focused. Its location close to Newport Pier partially explains the steep rates. Complimentary parking, beach gear and breakfast buffet. Coin-op laundry available.
