it was just ok.

The hotel is in a great location with mostly friendly staff. The hotel needs to work out the kinks with air conditoning systems and unfriendly staff and upgrade the towels. They literally scratched me. It was a little noisy too. The hotel was clean and can easily be made into a 4 star hotel with a few adjustment.

The Place to Stay in Huntington Beach!

The Shorebreak is certainly one of the best quality hotels I've ever stayed at. We booked the room for a steal at a little over $100 a night (they had a short-term promotional offer). I had a conference in Anaheim during the week and a buddy and I had a few extra days, so we decided to come down to Huntington Beach. The Shorebreak was located directly across the road from the beach and adjacent to the pier. This is the closest place to stay if you want to be near the pier in Huntington beach. We were less than a two minute walk from main street where most of the stores and bars are located. The hotel had a modern surf-like theme and had the feel of a 5 star hotel. They had the nicest staff I've ever had experience with. They allowed us to check our bags (even after check-out) while we went to the beach. The size of the hotel room was outstanding and very clean. The bathroom was a personal spa. It included a full shower and separate oversize bathtub complete with bathrobes. The Huntington Beach pier and beach could be seen from our outdoor patio. Comfortable beds and sheets. Gigantic flat screen high-def TV. If I could complain about one thing, it would be the additional charge to access internet in your room. Probably the best stay I've ever had at a hotel. Highly recommend it for anyone wanting to stay next to the pier and beach, even if you have to pay a few extra bucks.

Excellent Hotel- Great Stay!

The hotel was fabulous within walking distance to the beach. Literally across the street. It shares the block with countless beach stores and shops, great restaurants and the famous Huntington Beach Pier. The rooms were fantastic, huge tubs, showers for two and LCD flat-screens in the bedroom and living room areas. The bar and restaurant are also top notch. All that was missing was a pool, but the beach is right there for a quick dip.

Walk across the street to Dukes for lunch or dinner at the beginning of the pier and for breakfast walk to the end of the pier to ruby's. You won't be disappointed with either - great views and food!

Great Stay

We wanted to get away and relax and the hotel was very comfortable and in a great location to walk to restaurants and shops. The young woman that checked us in knew that we wanted to have sushi for dinner and recommended a great place in walking distance. The bed was so comfortable and the robes very cozy.

A designer's dream with a friendly staff

Quite surprising set-up makes it a bit difficult to stop when driving-by, this new hotel is located a few yards from the seashore. Surf-inspired design, spacious and well appointed rooms, very friendly staff will make it an HB favorite. Only regrets, overnight valet parking is $24 which is outrageously expensive in a place like HB; and internet access should be free in surf city!

Great location

This is a nice hotel, with a fresh look in a terrific location. Our only complaint was with the valet parking. It should be avoided as it is far more efficient faster to self park. We were using the valet parking b/c we were going in and out with the car during the course of the day. Valet parking allowed you to pay the day rate ($24) with in and out priveleges. Once you account for tipping and the excruciating waiting time, it simply wasn't worth it. At around 8:00 at night we waited for about 20 minutes for our car to be retrieved! You're better off parking your car yourself.
