As other reviews point out, this hotel is a bit dated, but I found it to be clean and in a great location. The staff was super friendly. Being walking distance to downtown was what really made this a great, convenient place to stay. I'm a former HB resident who now lives in Denver, and make trips out to HB to visit my grown daughter. She recently moved to downtown, and it turns out is only 2 blocks from this hotel. So, not only was the Main Street area within a short walk, so was she! I barely had to take my car anywhere, we just walked!
The only comment I have is the bed is a bit too firm for my liking, and the pillows a bit too flat. But, I really didn't have any issues as by the time I hit the sack, I was pretty tired from the walking and time in the sun! Price is high, but only in comparison to "inland" hotels. Compared to the other hotels in the same proximity, it is a bargain! Sure, it is a bit "rustic", but how much time to you really spend in the room? In my case, it was very little, and spending hundreds more to stay at The Shorebreak would truly be wasted!
So, to recap, it is clean, quiet (yes, you can hear PCH, but it is dull noise that is not bothersome at all), has a great location for either going to the beach (right across PCH), or the Main St/Pier area. It has small fridge and it does have AC, but we had a squall come through and that cooled everything down so the AC was not needed. But, 90 degree weather was coming, so I'm sure future travelers will appreciate the AC! There is coffee service in the office beginning at 7:00 (but being an early riser, earlier would have been nicer, or a small coffee pot in the room), along with some sweet rolls! It has my thumbs up!
