Family Vacation

Nice hotel, excellent location, staff was awesome. This hotel was a dog freindly hotel, which is fine, we have a dog,(left her home) A pet owner left dog dodo in the middle of the hall way, my kids almost picked it up. After telling the staff they were quick to clean it up. Was a little pricey, but the location was a block away from the pier and accross the street from the beach. In HB you can't get much better. Cons - no free wifi.

Great location!

Love the Shorebreak concept, but the hotel fell a bit short. The rooms and common areas were a bit tired, a bit worn. Staff was friendly, and location awesome. Parking was spendy.

LOVE Shorebreak

Fantastic location, staff was SUPER friendly and helpful, rooms are huge and beds comfy, the bathroom was massive, the bathtub was bigger than my compact rental car, courtyard with fire pits were nice, there is an overall coolness and nice vibe throughout the hotel. My only ifs and buts... Parking is expensive :( Our balcony was great, but directly overlooked the restaurant beneath, it wasn't horrible, just weird. We can't wait to come back here again!

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.

Great Location

This hotel has a great location, close to the pier and Main Street, all within walking distance. In my opinion that was the primary reason for staying here. The restaruant and staff were also awesome. I was disappointed with the room, pretty average. There is no free parking, had to pay $18/day to use valet....but all-in-all had a good vacation
