My wife and I are always looking for that perfect place to visit. With 2 kids (ages 6 and 9) finding a place isn't always easy. We decided to stay local and experience the Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach. As we pulled into the valet lane, we were greeted by the most amazing young men. They engaged our children...

Definitely just Eh, have little or no expectations--everything is fine but nothing is special. We got an eh room -- 701-- Oceanview, I am not sure of that. If you are on the balcony, you have a view of what I think was the employee parking lot and then turn your head a hard 90 degress to get a glimpse... More

Room smelled fishy and was noisy. It was above the restaurant which played music and was hard to sleep after a long trip. Expected more for the price; room needed upgrading. Old, poor condition doors, rust in shower lighting, etc. Ridiculous to have to pay for internet service in this day and age. Much better value at lower tier hotels.... More

My wife, daughter and I spent another 4th of July week at the Waterfront Resort. The hotel is great and staff are fabulous HOWEVER this year the hotel was way too crowded on the 3rd and 4th. It would be one thing if it was all true guests but I overheard at least 2 large groups where the people were... More

The exterior and hotel staff were great. The room just seamed a little below my expectations. Not super clean, and some furniture looked hastily thrown in (like a small fridge sitting on a counter and a bathroom mirror that anyone over 5' tall could see themselves standing up. Also a dirty patio and patio furniture.

We looked all over the coast to find a great place to stay that had beach access and was a nice place. We found it at the Hilton. Located across the street from the beach and 2 blocks from the pier, it couldn't have been better. Upon checking in, I upgraded our room to a suite that faced out to... More

This is absolutely the "un 5star" experience. Super friendly staff and incredibly dog friendly. We have a corner suite on the ocean and it's nice, it's not Four Seasons or Fairmont nice, but it's nice. Grab a last minute special on hotels.com or Hilton's web page and bring the dogs :-)

I was so excited when I won the "Ingredient of the Month" contest on your hotel's Facebook page and a night's stay at the resort, and I so... More

This hotel is amazing. To start off, we arrived without a reservation...not by choice...I thought I had booked, but apparently, had not. The front desk staff was super accommodating while I checked online for a better rate than what they could offer. We were upgraded to ocean view room due to our diamond status. Our room was amazing with southern... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is directly across the street from the beach with easy access. The service was awesome, people are incredibly friendly and the pool is so warm it almost seems "not right". The beach is amazing with soft sand and big waves. The hotel allows you to check out beach chairs and towels from the... More
