Wonderfully romantic weekend getaway. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant downstairs was exceptional as well. No need to get back into the car and go anywhere once you arrive. Everything you need is nearby.

Doryman's Oceanfront Inn is the only place I would want to stay when in Newport Beach. The location cannot be beat. The hotel is quaint yet has luxury amenities such as king-sized beds and modern bathrooms. The fact that the suite price includes a parking spot is phenomenal (once you arrive in Newport Beach, you'll understand why this is a key perk). The view from the bar downstairs is magical and the bartenders are very charming. The one thing I would like to change is to add more overhead lighting options in the Bellagio Suite (probably only an issue for older guests). All in all, this was a delightful place and I can hardly wait to return. Thank you, Doryman's staff, for a wonderful weekend.

I cannot comment on the restaurant below as I did not eat there. The breakfast provided was OK.

Doryman's Inn is a fabulous place for a beach getaway. We loved the Victorian charm and the friendly and helpful staff. The location on the beach near the Newport Pier is ideal. The only issue is the noise at night. With the windows closed it was nice and quiet, but it was a shame to have to pass up the ocean breeze. The restaurant on the ground floor, 21 Oceanfront, is superb.

I spend a good amount of time visiting the beach areas, Balboa is one of my favorites. I had not heard of Dorymans's until an email sent for hotel booking services lead me to their website. I bought the Getaway Package and was very happy to find the most quaint and well kept little Inn on the beach. The room, the environment, the food the experience were one I won't soon forget and I'll go back in the very near future. Thanks , Tamera !!!!!

Its an old fashion pricey hotel, well maintained. Comfortable rooms, but due its location near the bars, its is very noisy at Night. So enjoy then sea breeze at day, at night close windows to reduce the sound.

After a failed attempt to stay at Su Casa in Venice Beach, we had an excellent stay at Dorymans Inn. Location, room, and stay made up for earlier frustration. WE will stay here again in the future.

The best part of this B & B is the fabulous location. We enjoyed our stay. Given the location the rooms are very noisy at night with all the activity going on in the bars below. The wi-fi connection in room 10 was very weak and not usable.. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating and helpful.

The Victorian room was great! Decorations were wonderful and room was very clean. Service was helpful when asked but understandably busy. Location was wonderful and there was not too much noise from traffic and bars at night.

We booked this little one night getaway at the last minute and were very pleased to have such a great place to just relax and enjoy. Watching the ocean out of our window was fabulous.
