I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, California. In sum, I recommend this hotel to anyone who would enjoy staying at a very cool, clean, friendly, and hip hotel that is right off the Pacific Coast Highway and directly across the street from the Huntington Beach Pier. Upon arrival, the valet service took... More

We stayed at the Shorebreak last week and had a great experience. The hotel is located across from Huntington Beach Pier and shopping in town. Lots of really good restaurants and Surf City merchandise within walking distance. Beach and surfing just over the PCH. Another plus is that they are very pet friendly. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The... More

Great hotel about one block from the beach. We were doing an inn to inn walk from Newport Beach to Long Beach and picked this hotel for second night stop. Room was very large and the tiled shower was oversized and very nice after a long day walking. Hotel starts on 2nd floor of a building situated in shopping and... More

Very disappointed in the room. Very small. Bathroom was nice. Very clean. If you just sleep in your room it is okay. Two people is a crowd. The food in the bar is good. Front desk friendly. This hotel is good if you are outside most of your time. Great area for good and drink.

I loved the decor of this hotel and the location. It is super relaxing. I think the best rooms are looking out to the beach or even looking into the courtyard with the fire pits. It's definitely a cool spot.

This hotel is located about half a block off from the Pacific Coast Highway. It's across the highway from the beach and the HB pier. I didn't see any hotels right on the beach but it seems that this hotel is ideally situated because it is right in the middle of a few blocks of restaurants and small shops. It... More

I can't say enough about the Shorebreak Hotel! We had a family reunion this month and the staff and the hotel were above and beyond our expectations! Everyone was so welcoming and so helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! Gracie Bennett deserves five stars!!

All in all, great stay on beach. The coffee and fish taco stand next door (across from CVS) was a great place to hang outside and watch the surfers head to beach. Weather was great. Across from pier. Perfect location. Interior room was very nice. Parking is kind of confusing as they share with the city and the city worker... More

Perfect location to walk to the beach or to all the local shops and restaurants on Main Street. If you stay on a Tuesday night, they close off Main St and have a farmers market for the whole family. Besides the hotel decor being filled with surfboards and beach scenery, you have a perfect view of the water and pier... More

We stayed at Shorebreak after 3 weeks in South Amercia and before returning to NZ. The hotel and staff far exceeded our expectations. It was a perfect end to our holiday and a huge thanks to Timmy and the rest of the crew for making our holiday so memorable.
