More of a business hotel
Not really a resort, more of a business hotel. Limited “resort” things to do. Limited dining options very expensive. Room was large and modern. Could have more creature comforts. Good for a couple of nights, but overpriced.

10/10 Exceptional

WOW!
We had reservations for a restaurant in Newport Beach. We were not sure where the restaurant was located. I found Balboa Bay Resort by accident. I’m so glad I did. The check-in was smooth, we arrived a bit early and they said the room would be ready shortly but our bags would be in our room when we check in. When we walked in the room we were surprised by how large the room was. There was a separate shower and tub and what really sold it, a door to the bathroom. The hotel did provide a couple of free bottles of water, but fir $6 you could buy the refillable bottle. We went down to the bar both night we stayed, the service was slow, but the crowd was friendly and engaging so it kept us entertained. The best part, they charged my Tesla. That made my day, I did not have to stop to charge. We are already making plans to stay 3 nights in the winter.
