Great staff, disappointing room

Upon arrival, our room was not ready even though we checked in 1.5 hours after the check in time. I was quite upset at first, but the front desk employee apologized genuinely and provided us with free drinks and appetizers at their very nice restaurant, which I was very pleased with. The room was nice but not worth the value of almost $500 per night. The bedroom was very small and the soaking tub was not very comfortable, which was the reason I booked this hotel. The view was very disappointing as we paid for partial ocean view which was very far away and mostly a 'Bud Light' billboard. The hotel was also very loud downstairs and great for people that like to party, but my husband and I were looking for a quiet place, so this was also a little disappointing. Overall it was a decent experience, but definitely not worth the value.

Family Vacation

Nice hotel, excellent location, staff was awesome. This hotel was a dog freindly hotel, which is fine, we have a dog,(left her home) A pet owner left dog dodo in the middle of the hall way, my kids almost picked it up. After telling the staff they were quick to clean it up. Was a little pricey, but the location was a block away from the pier and accross the street from the beach. In HB you can't get much better. Cons - no free wifi.

Great location!

Love the Shorebreak concept, but the hotel fell a bit short. The rooms and common areas were a bit tired, a bit worn. Staff was friendly, and location awesome. Parking was spendy.

LOVE Shorebreak

Fantastic location, staff was SUPER friendly and helpful, rooms are huge and beds comfy, the bathroom was massive, the bathtub was bigger than my compact rental car, courtyard with fire pits were nice, there is an overall coolness and nice vibe throughout the hotel. My only ifs and buts... Parking is expensive :( Our balcony was great, but directly overlooked the restaurant beneath, it wasn't horrible, just weird. We can't wait to come back here again!
