If your a bride and have the tough time like i did go to balboa inn and ask for lisa shes a life saver and calms me down haha couldnt ask for anyone better then her
The hotel is so pictureque from the outside & all of the rooms have their own.
We just got back from our tenth year in a row; a very wonderful vacation at the Balboa Inn. Being an avid history lover, we just love this wonderful quaint hotel.
The staff is amazing... from the time we checked in with, Laura, to the restaurant & bar with, Heather... The GM, Raymond went out of his way @ every availability to make sure our stay was first class, relaxing, everything we expected! Raymond even helped us get a reservation for a young military couple who had their wedding there, but could not afford to stay there.
I highly recommend this hidden jewel of a place... we are local residents, & it feels like we got away to an island vacation.
The location is ideal.. right in the heart of downtown Balboa, close to the Boardwalk & ferry, right at the base of the Balboa pier, lots of restaurants close by... although we love the food at their restaurant. You can stay in, or go for long walks, or hit the night scene, or enjoy the any site seeing attractions offered on the bay (boat rentals, cruises, fishing, bike rentals, etc) or just enjoy the ocean, which is literally right outside the doors of the inn.
My husband & I have stayed at the Balboa Inn now several times... we love it there !!! The rooms are beautiful !!! We have stayed in the quaint & charming smaller rooms, and this last visit we stayed in one of the suites, spacious & gorgeous :-) Both rooms were lovely, clean, inviting, relaxing... next time we will try to get one of the ocean front suites !!!
The location is perfect; a short walk to the beach and a variety of places to eat. The staff is friendly and helpful. We read some reviews that claimed otherwise, as well as the hotel being dirty, but we did not find it so. The area is a famous destination for travelers, as well as popular with southern ca residents, so some noise is to be expected, but, although we like quiet, we did not have any trouble sleeping or enjoying ourselves.
I have stayed at this hotel for many years and have loved the experience every time. The location is unbeatable, the proximity to the beach, pier, fun zone, restaurants and bars is unmatched in the area. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the rooms are clean with an amazing oatmeal bar soap that my husband and I love. Opening the windows you get an amazingly crisp ocean breeze and you are literally just steps from the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, as it truly is a great hotel and in the heart of Balboa.
My husband, sister in law and myself decided to take a last minute trip to the beach and decided to stay at this hotel. Its right by the beach and pier. It is walking distance to a couple of fun bars and shops. The hotel room was nice. The bath tub is huge and the beds are extremely comfortable. The TVs are old and small but we didn't come to watch TV. There was a complimentary continental breakfast outside which was lovely. The wifi is free. The only problem we had was that our key stopped working a couple of times but the staff was really friendly and quick to help us out. I highly recommend this place. The price wasn't bad at all either. We stayed in a room with 2 beds and it ran us about 167 plus tax. The only real downfall is that you have to pay for parking.
