Our family of four travelled the California coast for family summer vacation/college visits. Huntington Beach was a perfect spot to experience SoCal; Shorebreak captured the spirit perfectly. We splurged for a suite with an ocean view - it was worth it. Pluses: - Super friendly and attentive staff. - The bar/lounge/restaurant was a great place to relax over morning coffee... More

We stayed at this beautiful property for 3 nights as part of our California vacation. This was by far one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed, and one that we were truly excited about as we planned our vacation. Our room was spotless, comfortable, and spacious, with great views of the ocean. Hands down we would stay here... More

Definitely the best hotel of our California summer holiday. Fantastic location, great rooms and superb staff. Really appreciated the assistance from Megan with the directions to Long Beach for our anniversary helicopter flight and also the complimentary bottle of wine delivered to our room on our last night. We were travelling with our two teenage children and they thought the... More

Good location, right by PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops and the beach. Staff at check-in was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious; unfortunately, my room had some mosquitoes and other gnat-like things flying around. The bathroom had a walk in shower with a partial glass wall, good idea, although it wasn’t executed very... More

The valet staff was great. Although we only did one night we had taken out our vehicle 3 times after parking for check in. Not once did they complain. The room was nice. My only complaint would be the bathroom. It was to open for us. Only one person could be in there at a time. No door to separate... More

Dear Melissa F , Thank you so much for this awesome review about our valet staff! I'll be sure to send your kind words down to them! I want to apologize that the bathroom was not what you were expecting when you booked the room. The Shorebreak is a boutique style property so our bathrooms are a little quirky. Please... More

We stayed three nights at the Shorebreak to end our road trip vacation throughout California. Right from the beginning we felt at home with a super friendly staff, spacious room and very luxurious bathroom. The location was perfect and the valet parking super convenient as the hotel is so close to the popular Pier and Main Street. We had dinner... More

From the minute we pulled up to the valet, everyone was really friendly. The hotel is stunning, and the location is ideal - just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Also, lots of shopping around too (kind of dangerous on your wallet!) Our room is beautiful, lots of fun artwork. A special shout out to Timmy at the front... More

My son and I shared a room with my friend and her dog. The property is clean and super cute with a great location, across the street from the beach and a tiny block off Main Street with lots of restaurants and shopping.

I booked a block of six rooms at the Shorebreak for our son's wedding. It was the PERFECT location in HB for visitors from the East Coast: especially for a wedding. Main Street, with all of its Surf City vibe is a stone's throw away and the famous HB Pier is a five minute walk. The hotel staff was incredibly... More
