Restaurant has amazing food. Very fresh! They make so many things in house, including fresh cut smoked salmon. Highly recommend breakfast foods. We are here 3 times during our hotel stay. Our server Destini made the restaurant experience so much better. Super friendly and helped us choose the most delicious options.

I LOVE this hotel! The service is excellent! I brought my 2 dogs and they were so accommodating to them as well. VERY dog friendly! They have a nightly happy hour with beer and wine too. A nice courtyard with fire pits and corn hole and ping pong table. I would 100% stay here again!

We strive to be a relaxing yet fun place to spend your time, right in the heart of downtown HB. We are all about the fur babies! It’s their world and we’re just living it, am I right?

Very cute hotel right near the beach in a safe area with restaurants and some bars. Hotel itself was standard but clean. Smaller than I expected but had a nice view of the town. The service here was very good and I have to sincerely thank Danny at the front desk for being so welcoming as I was there for a work meeting and he was able to provide me a room before check in. Super accommodating and helpful! I would stay at this location again if I am ever in Huntington Beach.

599jadel, Thanks for the killer review! It’s great to be steps away from the beach and to have so many activities to fill your day; there is always something to do. We’re lucky to have such a great team here. I’ll share your compliments with them, including a special shout-out for Danny. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Destini gave us the best service at the Pacific Hideaway. It was our first time here and the 2 meals she suggested were some of the best we’ve ever had. Super friendly with our dog and had great conversation! Also gave us such great suggestions about the area and the hotel. We'll be coming back soon!

Amazing second stay at The Shorebreak! It’s now the only place I’ll stay when working Orange County on business trips and I cannot wait to share the property with my husband one day soon! What a gem! I especially love the restaurant and bar, which really shines with Victor and Destini on duty! Thanks, y’all!

I just wanna say… Danny is absolutely amazing…. I’ve never stayed at a hotel with a more friendly and helpful check in and check out experience… both Danny and Frederick went above and beyond in every way. If you’re looking for an employee of the month, Danny is your man. Make sure to show him some love and say hi when you plan a stay at this hotel. Thank you Danny and Frederick — you’ve earned a loyal ShoreBreak customer and me and my family look forward to our next stay!

This hotel is so frickn cool! The staff are all super friendly. There are lots of extras, and definitely out of the box thinking when it comes to amenities. There’s a record player in the room and records to choose from in the lobby. There’s a cute little ice bucket that’s actually a branded cooler. And they offer an add on where they will provide snacks or what not for you to pack up and take to the beach. There’s a yoga mat in the room. It’s quiet. The bed is super comfy. And the dual shower is nice and spacious. Perfect spot next to the ocean and near Main Street. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.

As this Kimpton property is located on the beach in Huntington Beach, the decor theme is “surfing.” California casual and comfortable. Front desk and restaurant staff are friendly and helpful. Had wonderful service from Colton and the other team members. The vibe is cool and happening with a “wine o’clock” happy hour in the later afternoon / early evening. Indoor outdoor lounge area with fire pits. Rooms are clean and comfortable with small balconies. Nice amenities. Location is convenient to local business of shops and restaurants, and across the road is the beach!

Right across from the pier and adjoining Main Street, this hotel is fun, funky, very family friendly and just perfect for a beach getaway with all the amenities. The convenience of parking your car and being able to walk to good restaurants, shopping, coffee and not to mention, the beach, is priceless. Rooms can be a little tight but since you’re there for the beach, it’s fine. Decor is fun, coolers are provided and yoga mats - bikes are available - just well thought out for a family fun trip. Staff is terrific as well. Our new favorite hotel on the beach.

Danny at the front desk took care of me, upgraded room at no cost. We’re here on business and needed space for 6-8 people to practice a presentation. Hotel is vet cool, many night time and after work hours activities Danny told me about. Checked in at 2:15, no problem.
