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 .

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.

The rooms were nice and clean but not very roomy. There was no refrigerator provided and the elevators smelled funky.

Great location for the beach

This is a great hotel for beach lovers who like beach front experience. Huntington pier/beach is located right across the street and the hotel is located on Pacific Highway 1 with lots of dining and some shopping. Short distance to most shopping areas and very accessible to find. The only downfall to this place is no pool is provided. However, the location close to the beach definitely helps!

New Shorbreak Hotel in Huntington Beach

We arrived early and the desk clerk checked us in, eventhough checkin was 4 pm. This was great because it enabled us to enjoy the 1st day of our vacation. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is very nice. Bathroom was very big and very clean. The bed was so very comfortable and linens were crisp.

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!

This hotel was a fun and unique experience. The location is fantastic and the staff were extremely friendly. If you are looking for a "locals" type of experience - this is a good place to try to accomplish it.
