My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night, just a quick getaway from the Vegas heat. You really can't ask for a better location, you are moments from the beach, tons of shops, and restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. I loved the bathroom, the shower was very cool. Would absolutely recommend and we will return for... More

Only minor niggles stopped me giving this a full 5/5 so I'll get those out of the way first. Firstly, this is a very trendy hotel in an unashamedly trendy area. Rooms are well specced, a good size and an iPod connection were all included. Wifi wasn't though, not even in the lobby areas. For a trendy hotel not to... More

There are a lot of positives about the Shorebreak. But first the short comings. The lobby is good not great, On the weekends when you want to get to your room in the 200 corridor you have to walk past an often busy room where events are constantly occurring Now for the positives that more then out weigh the negatives...

We had an ocean view room. Looking over the highway to the beach and pier was amazing! The food was great although the service was not very good. The front desk staff were fantastic though. There were quite a few dogs staying there as well which I found great.

The Shorebreak Hotel definitely delivers a beachside escape, located right on the Pacific Coast Highway with the deep sandy shores of Huntington Beach and its famed Pier a mere steps away. The beach location isn’t the only thing that will entice families about the Shorebreak Hotel. The boutique hotel transports you to a beachside cottage with its airy light throughout,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a california road trip. The location is perfect, on the road of the beach and in amongst restaurants and shops. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel and both were great. Slight gripe was that the bathroom sliding door didn't open easily which got a little annoying but enough to... More

We were in town celebrating my daughter's birthday and attending the music festival this past weekend. I'm so glad the Hyatt was sold out and I picked this hotel as our backup. What an amazing hotel. Beautiful suites that have a tranquil spa feel to them, helpful and pleasant staff and the location is so convenient to Main Street. If... More

The location is really great for this hotel. I ended up going on a sunset beach run this time around and found it to be excellent.

Dear binsight, Thank you so much for your positive feedback about your stay at the Shorebreak. I can not agree any more about Primos and their cronuts! I would like to recommend Sugar Shack as another great local breakfast place! Besides our own restaurant, Zimzala, I recommend Cucina Alessa as well as Ritters for great dinner options in Huntington Beach.... More
