Long Description:
Taken from wikipedia, "The Balboa Inn is located on the Balboa Peninsula in the city of Newport Beach, California. It was established in 1929, and added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1986. The "Balboa" got its name from the coastal Balboa Peninsula at Newport Beach, California. People from the Los Angeles area who'd seen it started referring to it as 'The Balboa', or the dance being done in Balboa. In its day, the Balboa Inn was the number one hostelry on the Orange County Coast and the present day "Balboa Inn Resort" is popular. [1] The Inn has been remodeled and modernized a number of times but its graceful Spanish Colonial Revival architecture remains. At one time the Balboa Theater, operated by the colorful, hard-drinking, hard-swearing character Madame La Rue, stood next to the Balboa Inn."
