So this is at least my fifth stay at the Shorebreak, which should tell you something. The last twelve months I've had a 2 week, 1 week and this trip is a week and a half. Not sure about the others. I come frequently to Huntington Beach, so lose count. I've opted for the Shorebreak over the Hilton Waterfront for... More

***Dog friendly hotel and just a short walk to Dog Beach north of the pier. Came here for an overnight business meeting which was paid for by my company so I can't comment on the price because I have no clue what they paid. Parking, however, is not cheap. I think it was like $18/day for underground parking. They also... More

We have stayed at the Shorebreak twice, once in Aug 2014 and again in October 2014. As I type this I am laying in a beautiful room in Laguna (over $600 a night) contemplating going to the Shorebreak tomorrow! Lol! It's my birthday and we are enjoying a long weekend to celebrate. I'd love to see more of the beautiful... More

The Shorebreak Hotel is a funky and relaxed boutique style hotel situated across from Huntington Beach. The location is fantastic, with the main shopping/restaurant area of Huntington Breach starting just outside the hotel door. Reception is one floor up (by stairs or elevator) with a spacious layout and fun atmosphere. The front desk staff were laid back, but very helpful... More

Having never been to HB, we choose the Shorebreak as we are big fans of the JDV/Commune brand. The Shorebreak did not disappoint. Stylish, clean and quiet, the Shorebreak epitomizes the HB surf culture. We did not dine in the restaurant but did enjoy one of their creative cocktails before exploring the vibrant neighborhood. The service from pre arrival to... More

We wanted near friends in HB and thru TA we found the Shorebreak . When I called to make a reservation, it was not made clear that parking is extra,(27.50) the hotel does not have ground floor rooms, and that wi-fi is extra. It is pet friendly is why we selected it. The room was clean and fresh, really good... More

Dear Jeannie N, Thank you so much for choosing Shorebreak as your choice of stay while visiting friends out here in HB! I sincerely apologize that we did not inform you of our valet parking option. It is owned and managed by the city of Huntington Beach so we do not have a lot of jurisdiction over the parking, however... More

I often go to the Shorebreak in HB. This hotel is not like your other hotel: great laid-back atmosphere, ample space in your rooms, good restaurant and excellent location by the ocean. Personnel is very friendly and will support your requests. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Dogs are allowed...loved seeing families come and go with their furry family members :) It is located in downtown Huntington Beach across the street from the beach and pier and a very short walking distance to tons...

Our room was upgraded (room 316) and it included a well sized bedroom, balcony and bathroom. It was lovely to open the curtains in the morning and have a view of the sea and promenade.

Stayed here one night on a business trip. For the location, this hotel is a great value, right on the beach! Clean rooms, great service, awesome location. Downtown Huntington Beach is within walking distance, with several bars, restaurants, and shops available.
