My wife and I stayed here for a night Super Bowl weekend for the Surf City Marathon. We live close to Huntington Beach, but far enough away where we never go there. The valet parking was a bad initial first impression as they seemed understaffed given the large amount people checking in for the race. However, once we got upstairs... More

I'm reading these reviews on Shorebreak and I cannot understand why anyone would have a negative thing to say about this wonderful hotel. Over the years my girlfriend and I have stayed here a handful of times and we have never been let down. Location is perfect, staff is always friendly, and the restaurant is always delicious. We just stayed... More

Great location, beautiful hip hotel! I visited this hotel on a business trip and was very happy with the service from the moment I pulled up. Extremely beautiful! Beach is right across the street! Don't hesitate to book!

The Shorebreak Hotel was a nice place to meet up with family members who were traveling a long distance to attend a funeral. It allowed us an exciting atmosphere to unwind from a serious occasion ... The valet parking was quick, efficient, and careful with the trucks one of which was a brand new one ton Dodge which made us... More

This property is quite frankly dirty and poorly maintained. A great location near the famous Huntington Beach Pier, I guess they think maintaining the property is not necessary. First of all, one actually has to check to see that your housekeeping staff are doing a descent job. The best hotels always have a manager cruising the hallways ensuring compliance. These... More

This hotel just blew us away. A few steps from the beach, restaurants and shops, really friendly staff and just the most amazing hotel room, ever. We were given The Lanai suite (213) for a family of four. It overlooks the beach and has a huge, and I mean a HUGE terrace - absolutely brilliant views and atmosphere - loved... More

Returned to Shorebreak for a one night stay. The property has really declined in one year as far as the upkeep and cleanliness of the rooms. By calling the hotel directly, you can upgrade the room for a larger patio. I paid an extra $50 for a room with a large patio. The patio would have been great had it... More

First of all The Shorebreak is the ONLY hip and contemporary hotel in all of Orange County so it's my natural choice! I have stayed at the Hyatt down the street and it was good, but it's far from walking distance to any shops or restaurants (except within the resort) and frankly the Hyatt is a bit bland and boring....

My husband and I have been coming here for years, last time we were here was approx a year ago when my husband proposed to me at this hotel! This weekend's experience was completely the opposite of what we usually experience and not sure what has happened within only a year. 1. My husband and I arrived Friday around 9:00pm,... More
