Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here with 2 large dogs and everything from hotel/room amenities to service was excellent. Lovely courtyard with nightly wine hour and s'mores by the fire and we are so happy we got to enjoy it with our dogs. Everything is in walking distance. Make sure you go to Pacific city (outdoor mall) and enjoy Mint Mojito iced coffee at Philz. Only con is no pool but you got miles of beach right across the street.

We found this hotel on the IHG site since they had recently merged. Close to beach. Easy access to Pacific Highway. Staff at the hotel were friendly and genuinely happy with easygoing attitudes. It helped us relax and it made a difference. We will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and if we travel back to Huntington Beach this is where we will stay!

Beautiful property with even better staff. I became ill and had to go to the hospital and miss checkout. The staff allowed us to extend our checkout and ultimately stay another night in our same suite at a reduced rate. Did I mention we were in a suite as a result of an upgrade they offered due to an error in my original booking through a 3rd party? They even sent extra water and amenities to the room to make sure I was comfortable.

I loved the outdoor games, grabbing Beach equip every day, happy hour, clean room, amazing ocean view & very friendly staff :)

Overall a good hotel, however, room descriptions a bit deceptive....ocean view is actually better described as partial view.

It's a quiet hotel, pet-friendly, nice staff. I wish I noticed that this hotel does not have a pool. Otherwise I have no complaints

This hotel was amazing and fun. My husband and I travel a lot and I think this was the most fun and memorable hotel I have ever stayed at. We were on our honeymoon and had just traveled Route 66 from Chicago to California. As you can imagine we had stayed at a lot of hotels and this by far was the most memorable. They have a large patio where they have games (large chess game, large connect four, ping pong and corn hole game), coffee in the morning, wine in the evenings and best of all smores in the evening. They also supply bikes, boogie boards, towels and chairs for the beach. The staff was exceptional. It seems as if they enjoy their jobs. They are within walking distance to all kinds of shopping and dining. The only downfall I can see for some is that they did not have a pool but the beach is literally across the street and why would stay that close if you didn't want the beach and ocean. This is the first time I have ever written a review so that probably says something.

Staff was very friendly, very accommodating and we loved the activities in the afternoon/evening in the lobby and patio. Only complaints were the lack of free wi-fi and no pool.

Overall a very nice hotel, great location across from Huntington Beach Pier. The fees a a little nuts for Resort fee, other taxes? I am used to a bed tax and taxes but what the what. The room was expensive enough. Cute amenities with Toss across beach style, giant Chess on the outside patio. S'mores by the fire, wine party evenings. We where there only one night but staff and everything else was great.

Free wine around patio fire pits. Played huge chess game with family. Staff super friendly. Room was awesome but had a shower head that made a lot of noise. Loved the hotel and will be back.

Staff awesome and helpful. Valets we professional and courtesy was excellent. No need to ever get in your car. Everything walking distance. I will definitely stay there again and again. Of course money allowing.

We really enjoyed our weekend stay here. great location and service. very comfortable clean rooms.

This Hotel is Awesome!!!! If you are looking for a great hotel in Huntington beach Shorebreak is the best!!

Overall it was a pretty nice hotel. I do feel like they need to monitor the outside traffic and not let non guests access their amenities. Hotel was very comfortable and had a lot to do for kids.

Location can't be beat! The rooms are a little small but the staff is friendly.

This is a trendy hotel...very modern and chic. Fantastic restaurant with outdoor seating. The furniture in the room was not as cozy as expected. Kicked my shin into sharp edge of bed...nasty bruise! But the staff was wonderful! We had a great time. And it's in a great location.

Hotel was just fine. Average cleanliness, amazing staff, great pizza joint around the block!

Great location right off the beach. Friendly staff great atmosphere.

Awesome Hotel!!!!!!!!! OceanView room was so worth the Money!!!!

The location was perfect for a majestic view of the pier and Pacific Ocean while visiting my daughter and son-in-law for Thanksgiving. All the hotel personnel were very gracious and helpful. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to enjoy the amenities at the hotel.

Susan, I am sorry to see that we did not hit the mark with your stay. We do have a resort fee that includes the stay enhancements for our guests. Majority of the hotels in the area have the same fees. I hope that this does not deter you from coming back for some more games, wine and smores at our hotel. Hope to see you soon. Thanks Brent M.
