Was here for business on a group convention, was very happy with my room, bed was comfortable, staff were very pleasant. Location is right across the street from the ocean with many places to dine, drink & shop within walking distance. Dined at the hotel's restaurant & food was better than expected, a pleasant surprise for your typical hotel restaurant.

In the middle of hotel is a plaza/courtyard featuring fire pits! This was really nice & needed for the cool evenings to enjoy a drink outside.

Unsure of the value, for my room was booked & paid for thru our business. Would definitely stay here again if in the area for either business or pleasure!

Dear topserviceFlorida ,

Thank you for posting a review of your business travels with us. Maybe next time you can come and enjoy the beach a little more. We really appreciate the business and the compliments about the room and fire pits. Take care and hopefully we will see you in the near future.

Our family stayed here for one night this week on the way back to LA from San Diego. It is a trendy hotel with great service. Our rooms were small and they could not give us connecting rooms. However, they did give us rooms across the hall and were extremely accommodating to all of our requests. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beach and the cute shopping district right at the bottom of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel and location.

Dear dmbmsb,

Only one night? Next time you need to stay longer. Thank you so much for staying with us. Our staff does a good job of doing whatever they can to accomodate every guest. I am so sorry we did not have connecting rooms. Unfortunately, the hotel was built with no connecting rooms. There is not a lot we can do about that, but my staff does whatever they can to make it convenient for guests who have two rooms. We really appreciate the gacious comments. Next time you come west from Georgia stay longer with us, so you are able to visit downtown and maybe do some surfing.

The theme of this boutique hotel is surfing, suiting it's location just across the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) from the beach in Surf City USA (Huntington Beach). The Huntington Beach Pier, shops, and restaurants are all a short walk away.

The room we stayed in had a great balcony overlooking the beach, where we enjoyed coffee in the morning and the sunset in the evening. The room was spacious, and it had a nice walk-in shower. We also enjoyed the hotel's nice courtyard one evening, where we had a glass of wine around one of several fire pits.

The on-site restaurant and bar, Zimzala, offers a good breakfast and a nice place to wind down the day. We didn't try it out for dinner.

Don't get surprised by parking fees ($27/day). It's part of the cost of staying in Huntington Beach, and the valet service is worth the cost.

Room Tip: Rooms with an ocean view are right on PCH, so expect a little street noise. It you want more quiet, then get an interior room that overlooks the courtyard.

Dear elpndj,

Radical just happens to be one of the words in our Surfers Riptionary from the guest rooms. Thank you so much for posting a review of your stay with us. It really seems like you connected with the Huntington Beach vibe. Whenever I stay here, I too make it a point to be on my balcony during sunset. So beautiful as the sun goes down over the ocean and city of Long Beach. It was so nice to hear that you had a great stay. Hope to see you out here again from Virginia really soon.

A very nice and cute hotel with a beach vibe. It is right downtown, 1 block from main on PCH - and there is no other hotel that is this close to all. It has some unique touches throughout, and the rooms are very nice. I had an oceanfront suite with 2 queens. The beds seemed smaller than queens, but were comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom is large with very nice amenities like a huge tub and dual faucet shower. The room was very clean, though small. There is a fridge and nice large flat screen tv's.
Check in was wonderful, the hotel staff is very personable and helpful - one of the nicest things about this place. They offer valet parking, and you can check in your car as early as you like, as well as depart as late as you like in case you want to enjoy the beach etc before getting your room. The restaurant is very nice, the servers are warm and kind, and it is run very well.
This is also a pet hotel. Any dog, breed, size - and there are a lot of guests with dogs. I did not hear any barking, nor were there any issues with it being a pet hotel. They have a dog walk for potty time, or you can go downstairs to some grassy areas on the residential streets. There is also a nice dog beach less than a mile away.

Dear destinationaddict,

Just wanted to take a few moments and say thank you for posting a review of your stay with us here at Shorebreak. It is nice to know that local Californians like our place too. We appreciate all the positive comments and especially that you took the time to mention that we are a "dog friendly" hotel. It is so important that not only humans have a good stay here, but their furry friends as well. Hope to see you again really soon.

This hotel is in a wonderful location and super friendly for families, surfers and pets. We are a family of three and had the Junior Suite, it was a perfect size for us. The front desk was very nice and the evening wine tasting was a bonus. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms huge and location was perfect.

Dear EnaLEnaL,

Thank you so much for posting a review of your stay here at Shorebreak. It was an absolute pleasure serving you and your children. It's funny because I hosted our wine hour last night and several guests said the same thing as you about it. Guest LOVE our wine hour. Take care!
