Service from the personnel at the resort was excellent, but the room was not what I expected. What they list as an "Ocean View" room, might be sold as a "partial ocean view" room at a nearby resort. If you are booking here, do it directly with the resort to avoid unnecessary fees with an agency. No frills resort, but...

Dear James H., Thank you for your review. You are correct in advising travelers/guests to speak with us directly to book (either online or over the phone...we offer both!). Not only can our agents tell you exactly what type and the view a room offers, we can often also send you the photos to back it up. Additionally, there are...

Great experience. Friendly and helpful staff. The view was great, the balconies on the rooms were peaceful, the grounds were well-tended, bottled water was offered in the lobby, The survey requirements are too long.

We recently spent a night in you facility in Huntington Beach. The staff was accommodations were great. The only issues we had were as follows: the bathroom door did not close completely & our neighbor to the South was smoking on the balcony. Being very sensitive to cigarette smoke, we found this extremely offensive. I am aware that this situation...

Dear Fernando C., Thank you for your recent review. Here at The Waterfront we have a strict "no smoking" policy (including vaporizers) for all of our guestrooms, ballrooms, public areas and pool deck. We offer two outdoor smoking oasis' for that purpose. Never hesitate to contact the front desk (or any Waterfront associate) to report smoking (even on a balcony)....

I stayed here on a last minute recommendation, but with vast experience with Hilton's worldwide. I was very happy with the rooms, hard wood floors quite balcony doors that blocked out the traffic front the PCH. The bar served food to 11pm and room service was also available. It was a limited menu but I had a good burger with...

We stayed here at last minute and didn't mind spending the extra money for the room, but then they nickel and dime you to death.

Dear Karen N., We were sorry to hear that you did not find the room rate and parking fee's in line with your desire for beach resort location.

This was my second visit to this property. The first was for a Hilton GM training class so I thought we may have been getting preferential treatment. However, the whole experience (hotel accommodations, service, location, view, amenities) was so great, we made sure to spend two nights here on our two week PCH family vacation.

Pretty good property. Across the street from the beach. Pier is walkable as is Main Street. My room was on the 12th floor with a "sunset" view which was pretty awesome. That being said, even though my room was a "renovated" room it was still a little worn looking. A really good property with easy access to the beach. Valet...
