Newport Channel Inn Hotel Review: Residing on the coastline just a few steps from the Newport Beach/Huntington Beach border, this small motel gives guests the chance to conveniently explore two distinctly different representations of OC coastal culture. The venue does not offer much beyond the basic amenities in its cherrywood-and-blue accented rooms, although it does feature nice touches like hi-def TVs and free Wi-Fi. Large, budget-minded families may be interested in the motel’s Giant Rooms, which boast three queen-sized beds and a single bed, and can accommodate up to seven people. The friendly desk staff is more than happy to get you out and about, as guests can purchase discounted tickets directly from the inn to several area attractions, including the Queen Mary, Aquarium of the Pacific and Mission San Juan Capistrano.
