We are local to Orange County and stayed in the Shorebreak while our house was being tented for termites. It was such a wonderful getaway.

Within a stone's throw of the Huntington Pier and beach area, this is a great location to stay. You have the ability to walk to and from the beach, various restaurants, as well as many shops. It was nice to wake up, call up for room service, get ready, call down to have the car pulled around, and head out... More

This place was nice, clean, and cozy. Perfectly located for beach time and shopping. Wide variety of restaurants right out the front door. Staff was easygoing and professional. The bar seemed like a nice atmosphere.

I really think its 4.5 stars but just not that outstanding to give it 5. This hotel is in a great location and has fair room rates. It is clean, modern and convenient. The staff is helpful, it is pet friendly, they offer a daily complimentary wine hour and have free coffee in the am. There is a hotel restaurant... More

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.
