This hotel sits above the maddening crowds of Main Street. After you have dropped your car off you are set. Restaurants, shops, bike rentals and miles of beach are waiting for you to explore. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. We were lucky to have an ocean view room with a large patio looking right onto the pier.... More

The hotel is located next to everything- right across from the Pier, in the middle of shops and restaurants. The hotel embraces the casual surf lifestyle of Huntington Beach through it's decor- lots of surfing art, photos, bean bag chairs in the rooms, funky mirrors and fun posters. The staff was friendly. We would recommend a stay here.

Our first stay here. Cool decor, friendly check in with helpful hints from Yerin. The bed was so comfortable and the room so quiet! We loved parking once and walking to the beach, biking and restaurants. Hung by the fire pit at night. We will be back for sure, next time we'll upgrade to beach view room. Can't wait to... More

This hotel was amazing. Just traveled with my brother for a weekend getaway in Huntington and am so glad we stayed at Shorebreak. The location can not be beaten. You walk outside and the beach is there. Its located right near the shopping center and restaurants which was very convenient. The front desk staff were great and friendly. We did... More

We arrived at the hotel only to find out I had made a mistake on our reservation. The hotel was booked but Mike the manager got us into a room right away. This is our first visit and it is definitely a five-star boutique hotel. The rooms are gorgeous with new and modern furniture. The bathrooms are large with a... More

We chose this hotel based on its fabulous location and it didn't disappoint on that score. We encountered a slight delay checking in and we also had some noisey Spring Break partygoers in the room next door for one night, but the hotel staff (especially Mike) did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. The view of the pier and... More

I travel often for work and have seen nearly every type of hotel, but this one was different. Somehow this hotel captured the ability to be family friendly, pet friendly, and couples friendly all at the same time. My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old and 10 month old sons for a wedding. The staff was... More
