romantic getaway weekend

Posted Sep 14, 2017
Great hotel next to the beach/pier and amazing restaurante nearby. This is our second time at this hotel. The staff always friendly and helpful. The hotel offer complementary beach supplies and bicycle to use. We stayed during the final weekend of pro surfing competition. Fun times!

Great hotel near the beach

Posted Sep 7, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: I know it's right on the beach - but a pool would be a great addtion.
Location: Main Street - Shops, Restaurants - BEACH!
Kimpton Shorebreak was a great place to stay. Right in the midst of downtown HB - but with it's own great facilities - S'mores, Wine hour, Ping Pong, Giant Chess - it's a great place to unwind and enjoy all that HB has to offer.

THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU BOOK

Posted Sep 6, 2017
Pros: location is center of everything
Cons: parking and direction to the place
Location: center of down town, lots of shopping and great nightlife and the food is great
Came there about 2 hours early before check in time, totally understand that they didnt have the room ready. gave them our cell number and tell us when the room is ready so we can walk around check in time is at 4pm no phone call. came back to the hotel and to the front desk, you are not going to believe this, the clerk said to me the room is not ready for another hour, so i was getting upset already, i figured give them a chance to fix it. then he approached us and told me that the room is missing the one that we booked a week in advance. at this moment bad things came out of my mouth and i told them give me my money back. they then decided to give us a different room. ok so i stayed there. warning they need to train their staffs better especially their housekeeping crew, they would walk down the hall way in a group and loud, they will not move out of the way for the guests. what is new, wait till you get into the elevator, there are two door and when both door open it lead to all kind of trash and bags and boxes all over the place. i definately would never recommend any one to this place.

Very Enjoyable

Posted Sep 5, 2017
Great kick back hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beds are super comfortable. The only thing I didn't like is they had so many drinks for you to buy in the refrigerator you could barely fit any of your own personal items. Also our room he continuously did not work the first day so we kept having to go back to the front desk and get a new key, but they fixed it for the second day. The amenities were amazing!

Close to the beach

Posted Sep 4, 2017
Location: Close to the beach.
The exterior of the hotel is quite average. The staff was courteous, the room was very nice and the bathroom enormous and modern. We would stay there again during the low season. There is a thirty dollar facility fee and a thirty-five dollar valet parking fee which goes to forty dollars for self parking. The restaurant menu could stand some additional selections. Its greatest asset is proximity to the beach and pier.

Friendly, comfortable hotel with lots of amenities

Posted Sep 3, 2017
We stayed here as a family of 4 for 10 nights. The staff were exceptional and friendly, giving advice on the local area and providing as much help as we required. The beach was virtually opposite the hotel and great places to eat, drink and shop were also on the doorstep. Bikes, body boards, umbrella's, beach towels and surf boards were included in the resort rate. The Smores and fire pits, wine hour and morning coffee were also nice touches to the stay. Great hotel. Highly recommended.

Watch out for the resort fees

Posted Sep 2, 2017
My husband and I were looking forward to a vacation in California. The price for the hotel room was expensive but wanted something nice. Knew about the additional charge of $35 for valet parking and didn't have a problem with that. Didn't know about the daily charge of $100 for resort fees. Evidentally it was for the wine hour, s'mores hour and use of beach extras. An additional $30 a day for resort fees was also added to our valet parking bill. Wow!! I can understand a one time fee of $130, but every day? And the day we decided to rent 2 boogie boards, they were all out, but we did get beach towels to use. Nice place with a very friendly staff but the resort fees are way too high. Will look for another hotel when we visit again. Would rather pay more for the room instead of being surprised with the additional fees.
