We stayed for two nights and had a room to the courtyard. The price of the hotel was like 250$ per night. The room is pretty small and provided a queensize bed only and you have to pay the valet parking at 24$/24h in addition. Nobody told us about the free wine at 5pm and after 10pm until midnight there...

I would describe this property as somewhat upscale contemporary surfer chic. The surfer motif isn't exactly my style, but I appreciated the decor due to the location and atmosphere of this very casual and well-run hotel across from the Huntington Beach pier. You should be aware that you MUST valet park if you have a car. The public parking garage...

After a long flight, my daughter and I met up, rented a car and arrived at 6:30 p.m.. As we entered the second floor lobby, the scene could not have been more inviting! The vibe was super friendly, fun, music, - a floor wide cocktail party! There were happy people in beach attire, and lovely ladies in sequin dresses. The...

I booked this room for a romantic vacation weekend. The property's decor is worn and stained. It has a quirky/beach/kitchy vibe and is a bit cheesy. It does not feel like a great value despite the premium prices they charge. This would be an ideal hotel for spring breakers looking to surf and party. It is not the correct place...

The Shorebreak is an incredible experience. From the first encounter with valet to the wonderful front of house staff, the hotel provides each guest with concern and care. The rooms are outfitted with a simple and cool beach vibe. We stayed in an interior room that opened to a courtyard and then upgraded to an ocean view on the 4th...

It seems to be the ultimate hotel in Huntington ... fashionable and well-attended ... If you want to enjoy the nightlife in the city you can start with the happy hour at the hotel bar, but you can also pay another visit before going to bed, because the environment is hip and lively until late at night. The beautiful rooms...
