Good morning just a quick comment. We stayed at the inn on our honeymoon night. It was fantastic. The view of the ocean and the sound of the birds in the morning. The room was super pleasant. My only thumbs down was the breakfast coffee included it tasted bad. I don't like milk so the cereal was not an option for me.

If you want to enjoy a small, hidden getaway this is the place. We parked our car and didn't drive for four days. Plenty of great places to walk to and then there's the beach.

Wonderful experience

Great Place

We really enjoyed our stay at Doryman's. The rooms are truly unique, and it was a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My wife loved the decor. The marble tub for two was enjoyable. The location near the Newport Beach Pier is a plus. So is the free parking in such a popular area. I liked eating outside on the 2nd floor patio, and there is a great view from the roof. The only minus I would say was the breakfast - adequate, but lacking in variety (at least in the 2 days we were there). Selection could be better, too.

Nice stay

I stayed for one night at the end of a work trip. The location was great for being in the middle of activity and on the beach. There is a very active nightlife and the hotel is in the midst of a very public parking area. If you are looking for a cozy quiet place to get away from it all and hear the waves, this is not the place But if you want a friendly, relaxing, clean place with nice touches, nice breakfast, great sunset views, people watching, and great proximity to the beach- then this is the place. The windows ledges are deep and sat in the window sill, watched the morning unfold at the fish market, drank my coffee and listened the surf. It was perfect for what I wanted.

Excellent Inn

Dorymans was an excellent experience. The location, rooms, and service were wonderful. The breakfast was nothing special, however, but not a deterrent to returning in the future.

My wife wanted a date night and she put me in charge or the location and accommodations. Searched for a hotel near the beach because she loves the ocean. And happened upon Dorymans. When I seen the pics of the rooms it was perfect. My wife love the old style down home looks that was Dorymans. So I booked the room immediatly. The place was perfect she loved it and so did I. Happy wife happy life right? I would stay her again in a heart beat we had a great time.
