    Great stay at the BBI

    Have stayed in the past and will stay again in the future. Michel, Laura, and are excellent hosts. Friendly, helpful. The only negative is the Mexican Cantina that is 50ft away and the Cantina has no regard for the hotel guests and can stand outside instead of keeping the party going inside - the Inn is the original site of the Rendezvous Ballroom of the 60s (look it up) - it burned down but wish it would be the Cantina. The BBI is perfect location, and be sure to upgrade room to a larger one since the small ones can be pretty tight.

    Balboa Jewel

    Desk employees were polite and helpful. Maid service was perfect.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    2nd floor had a lot of visual repair/maintenance items that should be cleanly stored away out of sight. It looked messy. Staff was hosing down the property a good part of the day leaving all the outside furniture and floors soaked with water puddles that did not drain. A little dangerous for slipping purposes. Breakfast is included but it is a little less than a continental breakfast. There was dry oatmeal in a cup, dry cereal in a cup, lowfat yogurt cups, packaged pastry and fruit. Expecting a little more. Location on the beach is awesome and really beautiful.

    Great Stay

    We just wanted to get away and the Balboa Inn was the perfect place. The view, the service was amazing. Anything we needed, Rene took care of us. We will definitely be coming back and hopefully the same room.
