This hotel is seriously the most amazing place ever. Close to surf, sand and awesome restaurants. Cool art in the rooms. Hip staff and free wine hour on the incredible outdoor patio, complete with fire pits and great ambiance. Every hotel I stay at annoys me because it isn't this hotel - they've really figured out how to create an... More

By far the friendliest host I've ever met. The rooms are full of character, are clean and comfy. The location is great. I loved my stay here - I just wish it was for longer! This place was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. Thank you. X

I was on a business trip and wanted to stay on the beach in Huntington Beach. At $145 a night, I was on a per diem rate that was much less than what it cost to stay in one of the $300-$400+ a night hotels ... but then I found this small hotel right about the rate I was authorized.... More

The guy who ran it was excellent. Very customer focused and friendly. Rooms were kept clean overall stay was great! Free body boards and towels are free to use for the beach. Takes about 1 minute to walk to the pier from hotel. I would recommend to anyone interested staying in Huntington.

Dear Cmpayne, Thank you so much for your recent stay. Complementary use of beach gears was something we have implemented to add to the fun factor of your stay. Why not have a good lodging experience and still be able to have some loose change left for ice cream on the beach is an important part of our philosophy. We... More

I think I set my expectations too high based on the other reviews. The rooms are large, but the paint color choices are an eyesore. The towels and linens are dingy. I couldn't lock my room door; I had to lock it from the outside and then shut it. I couldn't find anyone to tell about the lock or to... More

I stayed here in the beginning of October and I loved it. The staff are SO helpful and friendly. They have body boards and beach towels that you can use for free. They told me where to find the best/cheapest bike rental, surf lesson, and food. All of their recommendations turned out to be great! It is close to all... More

I stayed here Feb 2014 the night prior to the Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach. Good location near the beach, quiet, helpful staff.
