By far the best hotel to stay in Huntington Beach. We stayed here for our honeymoon a few years ago and so glad we rebooked here. You can’t beat the location right next to the pier. The hotel is boutique and understated classy, but very relaxed. It’s really stylish with all the surfboard pictures and decor. They have thought of everything and lots of lovely touches- from the happy hour drinks at 5pm, incredible 24 hour gym with the best equipment and machines, fruit juices and coffee available, a great restaurant, and a stunning outdoor courtyard with a giant chess set and table tennis. We received such a warm welcome on arrival and a special thank you to Danny who greeted us with a huge smile and welcomed us back. So friendly and exceptional service-just the person you need for front of house. We will definitely be coming back next year. We’ve been to California seven times and this is one of our favourite hotels to stay in.

Hotel's Favorite
If you're like me, you are sick and tired of these resort fees for places which clearly aren't even resorts and the lackluster benefits they offer. So I pay an extra $40 a night to be allowed to use the pool?!? Come on! This is one of the few hotels I have ever stayed where the resort fee was actually worth it. Here's the list: free coffee in the morning from 6am to 9am, use of chairs, towels, and even boogie boards for the beach, free beer and wine from 5pm to 6pm, and all the S'Mores you can eat all evening until 10pm. As a nice touch, there is a ping pong table and foosball table in the lobby which we definitely took advantage of. On top of that, spacious rooms, fantastic location, and great customer service! Sutton at the front desk was especially nice as my kids definitely took advantage of the S'Mores!

We’ve booked 2 nights initially, but decided last minute to extend our stay and arrive a day earlier. We’ve booked an extra night with reservation team ( very good experience). Omar from reception team was very accommodating and ensure we can stay in the same room for all 3 nights! Amazing welcome, check in super quick and easy thanks to Omar .

We were at Shorebreak for 4 nights with another family. Our stay exceeded expectations! The location to the ocean ideal! Walk a few steps to the crosswalk, wait for the light to cross the PCH and you’re at the Pier! Our favorite part was everything shared with guests. Guests can use Shorebreak’s beach chairs, beach blankets, beach towels, cooler, surf boards, kick boards, footballs, volleyballs and frisbees. You can also use the hotels beach bikes and scooters (for kids). It was awesome not to have to pack for our beach days. But my favorite part was being able to text with the front desk!! They helped with dining recommendations and reservations (and were spot on with what we wanted). This is thanks to Omar. Big shout out to him! And we know it was him because everyone put their name when responding to texts so you knew who you were communicating with (love that detail). One critique, was a recommendation by a different employee. We asked for a recommendation for an LA Tour that picked us up at the hotel. I booked based on the recommendation (and a quick look at the website). Big mistake, BIG! Tour didn’t pick up at hotel and it was awful. Rundown van, a guide pointing out houses of “celebrities” without any direction. I would rather be told they didn’t have a recommendation than to have someone give me the first website from Google search. It was opposite of how Omar responded to requests and we knew we could trust his recommendations. (Can you tell Omar made our stay a great experience?!) Truly, I know to always do my due diligence, but recommendations should be based on knowledge other than a Google search. We would like to go back one day and I hope to my travel clients, as well. Great overall experience!

Amy S, I’m stoked to hear you had an awesome time during your stay with us! We love to offer our guests fun amenities such as the beach cruisers, scooters for the kids, beach niceties and games in our courtyard. You’re right our location is ideal and were so lucky to be within easy walking distance from Downtown Huntington Beach with all its restaurants and the beach is just across PCH. It’s awesome hearing how Omar went above and beyond to make your stay so great. I’ll be sure to share your compliments with him. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next vacay soon.

We were able to get to the beach for my birthday and was given the best gift ever. Staying here, we have a patio, king bed, large tub to soak in. Keani was so good to us, her help at the front desk was exceptional. I will be staying here from now on. We are getting some champagne and a charcuterie board tomorrow for this tub. I’m in love with this room and her service to us!

My family initially planned to stay for 3 nights, Omar's professionalism at the front desk helped us settle in despite some confusion with our booking. He went above and beyond to accomadate our needs and make our experience unforgettable. This has been the best service I have ever experienced at a hotel. We will definitely be back to stay at this hotel whenever visiting Huntington Beach.

Our stay at the Kimpton Shorebreak was absolutely amazing, we only stayed one night and my son did not want to check out (neither did we!) The service all around was great which is what you'd expect from a Kimpton. But the highlight was Omar at Front Desk who was so sweet! I was traveling with my in laws and booked two rooms. He upgraded one of my rooms to one with two beds which was definitely needed with my three little ones, was patient with all of my questions, and explained everything that was going on in the hotel. The fact that they offer s'mores kits for their fire pits and scooter rentals as well as games in the lobby is very family friendly which I love to see in a hotel given I have three boys who have a lot of energy. It seems almost impossible to find service that goes above and beyond these days but Omar shows hope is not lost with his kind and friendly attitude. The rooms were beautiful and very clean, my kids enjoyed the large tub haha. We will return not only for the service and beautiful rooms but also because the location is great, so close to the beach and local eats that you don't even have to drive. It was my in laws first time at a Kimpton and they were very impressed. Thank you for the wonderful experience Shorebreak and for the stellar service Omar!

Vivianaaag, oh my you’re making me blush! I’m beyond thrilled to hear your praise of your “absolutely amazing” stay. It’s the best to be in downtown Huntington Beach, easily walkable to shopping, dining and the beach. I get so giddy seeing guests roasting s’mores, relaxing in the courtyard and playing games in our lobby. I agree – Omar is the best! I’ll share your kudos with him. We can’t wait to see you back here again soon. Cheers, Justin Simpson General Manager

If you want to get the full vibe of the upbeat, Hunington Beach community, you will want to stay at this hip resort. Everyone from the front desk, to behind the scenes in guest services (shout out Alex!) are helpful, pleasant, and want to make sure you enjoy your stay. There is no pool, but the beach is right across the street, and your resort fee includes beach lounging necessities and even bikes to explore. Don’t want to ride a bike? That’s ok - because everything is within walking distance. Complimentary happy hour from 5p-6p, and s’mores kits nightly to roast on the many fire pits with ample seating available. I was surprised how quite it was at night, being that the resort is bustling in the day time. Noise disturbances at night were never an issue for me. The only cons I have that prevented a 5th star was there is no fan in the bathroom and the barn type sliding door on it was a bit of an odd design, as it doesn’t completely close. The sofa bed is very uncomfortable - so if you have a 3rd person, you may want to request that roll away bed. Overall - Kimpton was a HUGE part of our awesome visit to Hunington Beach. Will def book again.
