Great hotel, is a boutique style which really apeals to the California vibe it is settled in. Had a great time staying here, staff were very friendly and the hotel probably had the best location to the beach and downtown. What I loved most was how they served wine everyday from 5-6 for free and provided free beach chairs, embrellas,... More

I travel back and forth from New York City and Huntington Beach for work and although I have the option of staying at various locations around the beach I always choose Shorebreak. Traveling back and forth is not easy, but everyone here makes the travel worthwhile. I honestly feel like this is my second home and I LOVE staying here.... More

Wonderful and refreshing design included with unparalleled service makes this a must stay when in Huntington Beach. Rooms were large and comfortable and the lobby was a fun design with a welcome home vibe.

It was a busy time because of the U.S Open Surfing tournament which took place right at the pier, but the hotel handled it very well. The front desk... More

Beautiful modern decor with a warm and inviting vibe. No hipsters, no pretension. Dogs even allowed! People who work the desk could not be nicer. The place is spotless and smells delicious all the time. Outdoor fire pits with free s'mores kits provided before 10pm. Rooms nicely appointed with everything you need, even an umbrella!!

Great location. On 5th and Pacific Coast Hwy. One block from Main Street (all the shops and restaurants) and same distance to the pier/beach. There is a $25 resort fee per day on top of your hotel costs that included bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, beach towels, wine tasting at 5pm, smores, etc. Valet parking available too. Great... More

Kevin N, Thanks so much for sharing your experience! I love our location on PCH but make note to anyone arriving, the valet entrance is actually on 5th and not on the highway. I hope that you were able to take advantage of everything that you listed...if not, you better come back and visit again soon! Surfs Up, -Brent More
