Always a great stay at this Hilton property. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and you can't beat the location. Walking distance to Main Street or you can use the shuttle. Always stay here when I come to visit.

Every aspect of our stay at this hotel was top notch. The entire hotel team delivered a quality, professional and friendly guest experience. Service was exceptional, and the location directly across from the beach is fantastic.

This hotel is under renovation (lobby area) I will have give a 4 rating if the Valet parking wasn't so expensive ($34US per day) why do you have to pay so much for your car since you already pay for your room??

The Waterfront Beach Resort has the friendliest, most helpful staff of any hotel we have experienced. Beautiful views from the rooms, beautiful grounds, a short walk across the street to the beach, great breakfasts and a friendly/knowledgeable concierge who found us great activities in Southern California most tourists miss (and thus are not over crowded) combined to give our family...

Hilton is great! I am a loyal fan of Hilton because I am confident that they will continue to deliver quality services. The rooms were beautiful and clean, and the service was good. The only disappointment was the construction, but it did not detract from the quality of our stay.
