I was staying in the LA area for a couple days and wanted to be right on the beach. So I chose this Kimpton hotel. The hotel was pleasant and right across the street from the beach. I was a little disappointed with this as life or having an oceanfront room that I would be right on the beach. Yes... More

Great location, great service and great touches like complimentary wins tasting hour, free hot chocolate with a kick and free s'more kits which for those who haven't tried it toasted marshmallows by the fire pit, chocolate sandwiches together in biscuits! Love love this place!

I recently stayed at this location because I had a comped night. I decided to take my fiance there for her birthday, we had a great time. The food was decent, the staff was great and smores awesome. The drawbacks are parking, it's valet only and it's kind of pricy. If you can find street parking that is KEY!

Love the Shorebreak. The staff is really friendly and the property is in a great location close to the beach and the downtown shops and restaurants. Be careful however on the unexpected "resort fee". Unless you think a free glass of wine and a s'more is worth it. We booked over the phone with their parent company Kimpton and this... More

I stayed here at Christmas eve of 2015, I called the hotel telling them I will arrive around 10pm because I drive from SF, asking for some dishes in my room because I can not find anything to eat that late at night. After a long drive, when I arrive, they offered a wine, a cheese&meat plate, two bottled water,... More

The hotel is just across the street from the beach and has so many fun offerings. Bikes, surf boards, wine hour and coffee service. The staff was great and the restaurant was fabulous! We will be back!

Overall this is the best hotel to stay at when visiting Huntington Beach. Having grown up here, this is the best location for the price. Base price rooms are a little small but offer everything you expect with a 4 star hotel. A pool would be nice BUT luxury fire pit lounges in the hotel atrium and complementary happy hour... More

Loved our time here. The location of being right in town is so convenient. Easy walk to the pier, shops and restaurants. Wine hour was a treat each evening! Splurge and get a room with a balcony facing the Pacific.

JonnHelenD, Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I couldn't agree more with you on the balcony rooms and especially love our Ocean Front Patio rooms. Direct ocean views with a large patio you can sunbathe on and a little room service...what else do you need? Come back and visit us again soon! Thanks, -Brent More

Even though a short visit for a wedding, my stay at the Shorebreak Kimpton was terrific. Starting with the friendly staff, sensational restaurant, easy access to bikes and beach chairs, to the great ocean front accommodations confirms that I will be back. Wine and beer happy hour and s'mores at 7pm makes this a perfect place for singles or families.
