This hotel also hosts many pro surfers and surf enthusiast alike year round...especially in June/July for the US Open of Surfing! Many little surf shops,... More

We stayed over 4th of July and all I can say is WOW. The rooms were beautiful, the beds comfy and the ammenities and service top notch. We stayed with 2 small children and the hotel was extremely accomodating. You can check out beach toys, chairs, towels, roasting sticks, etc. from the front desk. Free wine hour every evening.

Dear jess m, Thank you so much for this awesome review about our property! I'm super stoked that you got the chance to stay with us over the 4th of July holiday!

I stopped in at The Shorebreak for a weekend with friends. The property was actually much better that I had expected! Located smack, bang in the centre of Huntington Beach where you are in a position to pretty much walk everywhere that you may want to go. Whether that be the beach, the pier, the shops, the bar, the restaurant... More

Fun casual Hotel with good access to the beach. The hotel does not have a swimming pool. Rooms were very comfortable with a large bath. Staff members were friendly. We had outdoor lunch at their restaurant's patio. The meal served was surprisingly very good.

First off, I was very pleasantly surprised when they let us check in an hour early. Next we ended up getting upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite at the government/military rate, NOT what I was expecting and was super excited (like a kid on their birthday opening presents excited) when the staff showed me our room. Needless to say it... More

325 usd per night and no wireless. When telling front desk they sent an engineer who was clueless. Kept talking about a password when there was no signal at all. No follow up from reception neither about my complaint. Sorry for 325 that was terrible

If you want to go to Shorebreak Hotel, get out your wallet! 1 night as a single person with 1 dog cost me a fortune. They will pile-on the charges in the end. Valet is an extra charge, taxes, fee for using internet, extra charges for pet stains will cost you a bundle in extra charges too. There is no... More
