An Amazing Time

The food was amazing, you can't beat the location and the staff was helpful and friendly. You can't ask for much more.

Nice but not worth the expense

This hotel is beautiful and the rooms are nicely appointed, but nothing spectacular. Definitely feel like you are paying for the location and proximity to the beach. The bathtub drain worked so poorly it was like taking a bath and shower at the same time and the drain in the bathroom sink was not much better. They did attempt to fix it but was only marginally better - perhaps they have problems with clogging from the inevitable sand in the drains. Breakfast at the cafe restaurant was good, the usual buffet assortment, without an omelet station. Pool has no slide or feature for kids, unlike their next door neighbor (which was unfortunately booked solid).

Didn't want to go home...

My husband and I are from Huntington Beach but moved away 2 years ago. We decided to make a trip back there for a fun weekend and LOVED our experience at the Waterfront Hilton. We brought our 2 year old with us and she had a blast. The pool isn't the biggest or best we have seen but it was quiet, they had great toys for her to play with, and they had clean/comfortable chairs/towels with an amazing view and location. We can't wait to go back!

Great place to stay!!!

We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I wish the pool would have been cleaner. I saw lots of nats in it and the water looked foggy.

Outstanding Hotel

This was an outstanding hotel and a great value for the money. Right across PCH from beach, courteous staff and helpful staff. Close to good restaurants, (Joe's Crab Shack 4 miles down PCH), big fluffy towels in bathroom with all the other ameneties provided. Great food and a terrific view from room balcony of beach and shoreline.
