Good Local Access to Newport Beach Area, Best with a Bike 15-20 minutes to Beach on bike, 5-10 minutes by car without Traffic, Near Big Orange County fair Ground and Swap meet. Close To Orange Coast College. Very Close To pacific Coast Highway Rest rants.

Some people have these "standards' and are too finiky. If you are on a budget, it is OK as the rooms have been remodeled. Be sure you get one of those. It is right by Newport Beach Blvd. The owner is a miser who won't pay for anything. I have stayed there several times. The biggest problem is the Wi...

Not good, not bad. No bugs, no problems with the WiFi, the breakfast was OK (coffee and donuts, the coffee was OK, not good and not bad). The room was cold at night. The bathroom and shower were tiny and old but still working. :)

My experience at Sandpiper was horrific! I got there in the middle of the night. I got into my room and it was freezing. The heater was broken, the window was stuck open about an inch and my curtains were falling off. Finally got a space heater at 7:30am. I asked to change rooms as the one I was in...

The motel was cockroach infested, noisy and dirty. When I reported to managment their attitude was 'it happens sometimes'. I have never had such a horrible and disturbing experience staying at a hotel/motel. I certainly did not expect this for a motel in Costa Mesa!!!
