Very nice management, very friendly, clean rooms, nicely decorated. A great place close to the beach and to the pier. Beach towels and umbrell and boggie boards for free. We stayed here the second time and will come back!

We stayed here as part of our California road trip and it wonderfully served our needs. Across the street from the beach, local shopping and restaurants, it was the ideal location. The hotel staff were very accommodating to our late arrival and departure. Highly recommend it for fun and relaxed accommodations.

We loved our room, it was clean, quiet, and decorated super neat. The help from the office was super nice. This is our 5th time coming here and we'll be back next year! One of the things we like, the rooms are each decorated in a different beach theme.

Walking distance to Huntington Beach. You literally cross the street and you're there. Awesome people run this place and the rooms are clean and just what you need. Close walking distance to shops, restaurants and the pier. I recommend 23° for burgers and beer.

Nice rooms with a different theme in each room. You clearly get the retro feel in this renovated motel. The management is great and you feel welcome once you arrive. They have complimentary towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and a deck you can relax and watch the sunset in the evenings. One thing I wish they had was a coffee... More

Very nice rooms very close to main St and the beach can't get a better deal than this. Highly recommended and would rate it higher if I could. The rooms are beach themed and kept clean has fridge TV and nice bathroom. They even let you borrow boogie boards towels and other stuff for the beach.

Small, boutique type inn. No frills but has everything you need. Very clean. Close to beach and downtown. Has a small outdoor deck you can view the beach and ocean. The management is very friendly and accomodating. Can't wait to come back to HB.

Dear debzster, Thank you so much for your recent review. July is a busy time at the Inn, and we appreciate your patronage. Since we are a small local property, our "frills" center on great customer service and meaningful money saving items like complementary Wi-Fi, parking, and use of beach items like boogie boards, chairs, etc.. to allow our guests...

Stayed at the HBI July 15th -19th. Was going to see the Red Sox in Anaheim and we usually stay in Newport Beach but traveled a little north to Huntington Beach to get a little more night life and surf feel. Very glad we did. Literally a 5 minute walk to the Pier, the beach, the best coffee shop for... More

My friend and I stayed at the Huntington Surf Inn for a long weekend. This is a no frills place with only 9 guest rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable and each one has a different theme. The bathrooms were fairly clean as well although they could use some extra care. If you arrive at night, make sure you... More

Dear WPIBeaver, Thank you so much for your recent visit and review. Our hotel is a 9 room inn with a decidedly different focus than your typical chain hotel. We keep prices lower than our peers and our frills are those that make your stay more meaningful such as exemplary customer service, free beach gears, free high speed Wi-Fi, and... More

Excellent location, very friendly and clean. Free parking. Close to the city center and just to cross the road to go surfing and swimming. Great staff and kids were very happy to be able to use the morrey boards in free access. Hope to come back soon because we loved Huntington.
