I travel often for work and have seen nearly every type of hotel, but this one was different. Somehow this hotel captured the ability to be family friendly, pet friendly, and couples friendly all at the same time. My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old and 10 month old sons for a wedding. The staff was... More

We were celebrating our Anniversary/Valentine's Day and my wife wanted to walk on the beach and feel the surf slash over her feet. Decided that we would go back to Huntington Beach because they have a large Dog Beach area. I found the Shorebreak online and had some really good reviews so I thought we would give it a try....

I'd grown up going to Huntington Beach in the late 70s to early 80s and in that era there were not many hotels, if any, along PCH. So after reading some reviews, I brought the family to HB for a sunny Spring Break from Portland. We were not disappointed. We opted for a 2-queen mini suite with ocean view and... More

Arrived at the Shore Break with a reservation but where unable to check in right away because their computer system to check in was down so it wouldn't accept either my husbands credit card or mine. They said their systems were down and we would have to wait. Well we waited and waited. Finally they said they would take our... More

This was my first time staying at this hotel and I am really glad that the other hotel options we had were sold out.

Room: on point. Very clean. Doesn't smell. Just the right size (i stayed in a courtyard king room). There's a fridge in the room BUT it's filled with honor bar stuff. Bathroom is very spacious! Watch out tho, it only has a shower, no tub. Front desk: very friendly, especially Timmy. He went above and beyond to help me out.... More

If you are traveling with your pup this is a prime location. Very pet friendly. Do NOT have a "pet fee" like many other "pet friendly" places charge. Welcoming staff.
