This hotel is amazing, loved everything about it, near the pier, restaurants, bars, and the staff was great. Especially with the ocean view, can't get any better. It's a great place for a weekend getaway.

I attended a conference at another hotel one mile away and stayed at the Shorebreak as the overflow hotel. This is an eclectic hotel, convenient to the downtown bars and restaurants and the service was outstanding! We decided to come back for pleasure two weeks later and we were wowed. Zimzala, the restaurant is our pick for one of the... More

I just came back from another stay at the shorebreak, and as usual it was very pleasant.. The staff is great everyone is friendly.. We stayed in a courtyard mini suite which was very comfortable.. Everything is so close by... And they always make sure the dog has treats and a comfy bed..

Stayed here with my husband and son. The room was large and our view was spectacular!! We could keep our door open at night....it wasn't that noisy! The staff were eager to please and friendly. They even gave us chairs and an umbrella for the beach!! There were lots of restaurants within walking distance and the market on Tuesday nights... More

We had to be in Los Angeles for business, and decided to come early to have a little weekend away so chose Huntington Beach. This is a true surfer town, and the hotel was in an excellent location right across the street from the beach. It is also right next to many restaurants, and casual surf shops, and restaurants(both sit... More

I stayed in the hotel for a business week in early October. I enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it as the place to stay. The room was very large. I asked for a room with a bath tub and found the bathroom to be gigantic. The bedroom part of the room was a nice size. I looked at Over... More

We had a formal function to attend down the road but decided to stay here. This hotel has a very casual, laid back atmosphere, but the service is very professional. The place is very dog-friendly and there were plenty there, as well as a busy bar scene. But our room was very quiet and restful. At 7:00 the next morning,... More

Myself and my husband visited this hotel while on our honeymoon. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the valet service was great! The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

This hotel had breathtaking view of the ocean and pier. The room was very basic and the walk-in shower was gorgeous but with very low water pressure. Internet costs extra per day and cellular service was spotty in the room. There was a lot of partying going on - younger crowd. The night we arrived, someone had vomitted in the... More

Dear Tara, We are very grateful for your review. I am so, so sorry for the unpleasant atmosphere created by the party crowd. We try to shut down the out of control parties as soon as they come to our attention so that they do not disturb our guests. We are also working to improve water pressure in our guest... More

Hard to argue a better hotel in Huntington beach than the shorebreak! Literally on the beach, yet close to all of the cool shops in Huntington Beach. Room had a really cool surfer vibe, was clean. Though my room didnt have a ocean view, I did have a fairly large deck with a chaise to tan. Zimzala had unbelievable food!... More
