My husband and I had a wonderful stay! The Shorebreak is a beautifully decorated, and very well taken care of boutique hotel. The rooms are perfectly appointed with a modern beach/surfer theme. They care about their guests and it shows. We adored the 5:00 pm "wine time", and took advantage of this every night of our stay. They have a... More

We stayed at the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach for the 2nd time in May. This time we brought our dog, since they are a "dog friendly hotel". We ended up on the 3rd floor, and requested to be moved, but they were sold out, so we stayed. We had a balcony, which our dog loved (he's a 50 lb.... More

Good hotel. Fair fitness room...could be larger snd more equipment. Nice staff, but wake up call did not happen. Funky amenities, like the ping pong table! Parking expensive. Good location. Any hotel near them just as pricey. Hilton and hyatt tight down the street.

We love this hotel, we've celebrated 4th of July here, Valentine's day, Birthdays, and Stay-cations are a huge bonus! They treat local residents really well, which I appreciate. Last year when we had a household emergency they graciously received us and our pet. We love the large bathtubs, friendly staff, views, and the location cannot be beat!

Super nice hotel, cool modern decor, super comfy bed/pillows, friendly staff. A huge thanks to Megan for wonderful service! Thanks Megan! Great ocean view. Pay the extra to get that view. A/c on roof kind of loud, though, on top floor. Absolutely no traffic noise, however, (when patio door closed, of course). Totally worth it!

Stayed here during a recent business trip to the U.S. Having enjoyed previous excellent stays in this hotel, disappointingly I will seriously be re-considering using this hotel again despite the location being ideal for evening events with co-workers or a walk around HB. Customer service post check out has let this hotel down...after a co worker queried their bill for... More

Loved my stay at Shorebreak! Right off the PCH (daydreamers favorite drive), the Shorebreak has amazing views of Huntington Beach. I only stayed for a night, but would have moved in if given the opportunity. Clean, spacious, and fun! The rooms are great - beanbags add a fun twist and the surf directions (attached) give a great SoCal vibe. Watched... More

The entire staff was positive and helpful, the restaurant was great and the free wine hour was an awesome bonus. I highly reccomend this hotel to anyone whos looking for a great spot, righ tin...

In my opinion, appears to be a very poorly run property. The General Manager and other front desk managers seem to have poor customer service skills, or just a lack of desire to care about guests. They advertise check-in time as 3pm, but if you should get there at 3, you might have an hour wait, as they will tell... More

Stayed over the weekend with our Boerboel Mastiff in a 3rd floor 2 double bed room. The room was big and had a balcony overlooking the courtyard where the wine socials are held in the late afternoon and fire pits at night. Love the large bathrooms. Best thing about this hotel is it accepts pets no matter what size at... More
