The location is really great for this hotel. I ended up going on a sunset beach run this time around and found it to be excellent. Definitely go eat at the breakfast/coffee place across the street on the North side of the property. Its really great, and the cronuts are delicious. I ended up going to a dinner down in...

Dear binsight, Thank you so much for your positive feedback about your stay at the Shorebreak. I can not agree any more about Primos and their cronuts! I would like to recommend Sugar Shack as another great local breakfast place! Besides our own restaurant, Zimzala, I recommend Cucina Alessa as well as Ritters for great dinner options in Huntington Beach....

Fantastic modern hotel great room with interesting decoration throughout. Only downside is that you need to use their valet parking if you want to park at the hotel...$27 per night! Bar was okay with good craft beers. We didn't' use the restaurant but loads of great food nearby.

Pros: conveniently located on the main beach near the pier. Very cool design, the hotel is very new. Good bed and quality amenities in the bathroom. Coffee machine in room. Though you'd expect it to be noisy because all the young surfers stay here, it isn't at all. Relatively cheap concerning the other 4-5* options. Cons: parking fee. They even...

This hotel was a great pick, which we were very satisfied with. The front desk staff were super helpful and friendly. Our room was ready earlier than we expected on a holiday weekend, which scored major points. Later in the evening the staff suggested 25 degrees for some good food and drinks. It's a gastro pub so nothing fancy but...

I stayed at this hotel over a wedding weekend with friends. While the hotel, like other Joie de Vivre Hotels, was trendy and well-located, I was underwhelmed by the customer service. Perhaps they were overwhelmed because they were 100% booked (although this strikes me as a poor review). The day before arriving we called to confirm our room (two queen...
