I would'nt stay anywhere else while in Newport. There's nothing not to love about this beautiful, charming place.

Very charming and quaint hotel. The service is excellent and the details and decor are beautiful! Continental breakfast is modest, I'd love if they would add some fresh veggies to their fresh fruit option, and also some plain yogurt in addition to flavored ones. The only drawback in our particular room (#10) was that it was facing the bar across the street, so, no sleep until 2:30 am on Friday/Sat night d/t noise. Management needs to do something about sound-proofing that particular room. All the other rooms face the beach or the patio, so they don't have the same problem.

Great old hotel right on the beach.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Breakfast could use a little more effort
Location: Beach 30 seconds away
Nice old hotel. Could use a little TLC to bring it back to its former glory but quaint. There can be a bit of noise from the surrounding bars and restaurants but that is kind of expected. Their restaurant is nice if a little on the pricey side but the happy hour is good and there are more than a few restaurant and bar options in the area. Great location, right on the beach.

Lovely hotel right next to the beach

Pros: charm
Cons: nothing
Location: We had taken the boat to Catalina for the day, then ate at Newport Landing. Both were fun. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby and endless beach.
The Doryman is a sweet charming hotel right near the beach. I'd booked online and wished we'd finished dinner earlier to enjoy the hotel even more. We were in room 6 which had plenty of room and a balcony. Be advised that there is a loud bar across the street, but I put earplugs in and slept fine. The continental breakfast looked good, but we had wanted to cruise the PCH and left before we were hungry. I enjoy a wonderful walk on the beach at sunrise.

Across from beach

Pros: The charm of an old inn.
Location: Lots of shops and restaurants. Beach just steps away.
Our recent stay was top notch. Upon arriving we were greeted by a friendly innkeeper who gave us a complimentary room upgrade. We were in room 7 and it was just perfect. Great ocean views! We ate at the restaurant downstairs called 21 and the food and service were superb. The next morning we were greeted by a friendly breakfast staff where there was an adequate amount to choose from in the breakfast room. We could sit on the balconies outside to eat if we wanted to do so. Because the inn is right downtown in the heart of it all, be prepared for it to be quite noisy. I managed to put my headphones on and play my pandora and sleep quite peacefully. If you like the old history and charm of an inn this place is a great choice! You could tell that this place is meticulously taken care of and staff are very detail oriented in the cleaning details. We just had to cross the street to be on the beach.

charming bed and breakfast close to Newport beach

Cons: Free wifi didn't work in certain rooms so business folks may not appreciate this.
Affordable stay on Newport Beach. Fabulous desk person, Andrea, and wonderful staff. Attached to 21 Restaurant for upscale dining or casual happy hour. Bartender must have been having a bad day. Not very personable. Staying right on the beach is fun but also noisy. The hotel offers earplugs. Enjoyed a basic breakfast on beautiful rooftop deck overlooking the ocean. Hotel provides parking...yea!
