I was looking for a local place to celebrate my wife's 40th anniversary (we live in Long Beach, CA). We thought about the St. Regis, the Lodge at Torrey Pines, and the Grand Del Mar. All are of course amazing grand properties, but we went in a totally different direction and went with the local boutique hotel instead. What a... More

We just got back from staying here for 4 nights. We had a room facing the fire pits & relaxing area. Our room was very quiet. The bed & pillows were great. The bathroom was very large & clean. There was a coffee maker in the room. Our refrigerator didn't work when we 1st got there, so Abraham from the... More

The rooms are contemporary and roomy, the bathroom is huge and the bath is just as big. The staff we're great and Megan made my daughters trip very special with the chocolate covered strawberries. Loved... More

We had a wonderful time at the Shorebreak Hotel. Being so close to the beach, pier, shops and restaurants added to the great stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I joined the frequent stay program so our internet service was free. We enjoyed the special treat of making s'mores at the fire pit! Don't miss it! The surfing... More

From renowned surf photographer Aaron Changs photos on the wall, to the classic surf music vibe in the background ( yes,... More

I was recommended the hotel by a friend, who loves it there. Hotel is clean, quiet and has very friendly staff. Restaurant Zimzala serves delicious starters.
