Great hotel for Huntington Beach stay

The facility and service was excellent. Perfect location on the beach and for walking the town. Kudos to the valets for two spot on restaurant recommendations.

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.

In the middle of the action...

The Shorebreak Hotel is a great property. Positioned in an entertainment area, it is the best spot in Huntington Beach. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valets were great. Valet parking is $27/day, but there's no free parking in HB anyway. It's worth the convenience. The bar was pricey, but served very professional cocktails. If that's not your style, there are at least two dozen other bars in the area. There's also a CVS that offers wine, beer and liquor if you prefer to party in your room. We ate at the Ra sushi bar for lunch, which was fantastic. A pool would be great, but it's directly across the street from the city beach and pier. Lots of great surf stores around, too. We paid less than $200/night which made this an outstanding hotel value, considering the location and available amenities.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Grab a bottle of wine at the nearby CVS and pre-party before you head out. You'll find wine classes and a corkscrew waiting for you in your room. Fireside in the hotel courtyard is a great place to start your evening.

Restaurant

The food was overpriced at Zimzala Restaurant. . The hotel staff was excellent.. The rooms were nice, pet friendly, and I would stay there again. The valet parking was awesome. The hotel is a short stroll to the strand and the beach. Great location .

Best hotel in Orange County!

Absolutely love this hotel! Staff is extremely helpful and so nice! We originally were only staying one night but enjoyed this hotel so much that we stayed an extra night. We stayed in the King Suite and the room was huge with the most comfortable hotel bed ever! Extra large bathroom with giant soaking tub and huge walk in shower with dual shower heads. The hotel restaurant was fantastic as well! We honestly never really left the hotel and came home nice and relaxed! Can't wait to go back to Shorebreak hotel!

from the scented rooms to the airy atmosphere to the location, steps from everything, this hotel had it all! the wine tasting in the evening looked awesome (though we couldn't attend) and the beds were super soft and the pillows were as well. bathroom was beautiful and airy, room was spacious, even had wine glasses and a wine bottle opener in the room! very cool hotel, nicely done. finally a boutique hotel that lives up to it's name!
