Perfect dog-friendly, family-friendly beach hotel

Posted Nov 26, 2016
You cannot beat the location, the staff was beyond amazing, The room was comfy, I could see the ocean from my balcony, and the kids loved the ping pong table in the lobby. Only drawback was the lack of pool. Why? Shorebreak, build a rooftop pool!!

Great Hotel Close to Beach

Posted Oct 21, 2016
Location: Huntington Beach is a surfing beach and is growing rapidly with new residential and commercial development along the main beach road.
The staff at this hotel are great, very helpful and always very cheerful. The location is away from the new developments in the "older end of Huntington Beach one block away from Main Street and the pier. The newer developments, shops, restaurants and hotels are a couple of blocks away, in easy walking distance. The hotel has a surfing theme and the rooms are modern and comfortable. My room was at the back of the hotel with no ocean views but it was very quiet with a small balcony that caught the morning sun.

Lovely hotel, great staff, perfect location

Posted Oct 12, 2016
Location: Great location, right next to the boardwalk, yards from the beach and the main street with all of the restaurants and surf shops on it.
The Shorebreak was our last stop of our honeymoon. We wanted something close to the beach (tick), relaxed (tick) with a nice character too it (again, tick). A lovely hotel, staff that we're very laid back but very accommodating and happy to advise of all the things that the hotel offers on your check in (beach brollies & towels, bicycles and free wine hour 5 till 6). We booked a King bed, balcony & sea view (partial in my view but we could see it) and were given room 401 (top floor). The room had everything we needed, and if we didn't have it then the hotel were more than happy to provide or lend. A comfortable king bed, good room servicing and our only slight gripe with the room was that the noise from what must be the air conditioning units on the roof could be heard humming sometimes at night. It wasn't loud enough for us to complain and move rooms, but if you sleep light then maybe ask to be on a lower floor. Our one gripe (and one we knew as we booked) is that the parking here is expensive ($35 per day valet). There doesn't seem to be a cheap option available either so it's either accept it or risk parking in the local neighbourhood. We took the option of using the valet, who were great and brought our car round very quickly when asked. I'd happily recommend this hotel to friends and family, it was the perfect, relaxed hotel that we needed after a hectic week or so of travelling down the west coast. I'd also happily book another Kimpton hotel based on this experience

First time at the kimpton

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Staff was very attentive and friendly And suited anyone with language barriers There was a gentleman working a grave yard shift on the Saturday I was staying Around 12 am- 2 am He was working the front desk, folks like himself deserve a raise, customer service at its finest at the lowest level. Those above could learn a thing or a lot from him Best hotel ever!!

Very Enjoyable

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: Great experience, we particularly loved the friendly staff and great views from our room. The Rooms were spacious and very clean.
Cons: Coffee pots added to the rooms.
Location: The are many restaurants and shopping all around this hotel. The pier is right across the street and the ocean beaches are beautiful.
From check in to check out we had a very pleasant experiance at the Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel. The staff at Check in went above and beyond with friendly and helpful. Vallet Parking and all service people were great! The room was very spacious and clean and we had a perfect view of Huntington Beach Pier and the ocean. We enjoyed the patio in the evening and roasted smores that they provide. The restaurant had great food and the bar and staff were very friendly. Very family oriented and pet friendly.

Tolle Lage, gutes Publikum aber leider etwas laut.

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: Gut war die Strandnähe, am Abend brannten im Innenhof drei Feuer.
Location: Strandlage. Radfahren, Joggen, Surfen usw.
Zum Strand muss man nur über eine Straße gehen, die allerdings viel befahren ist. Mit offenem Fenster kann man nicht schlafen, man kann das Fenster auch tagsüber nicht öffen, da der Verkehr zu laut ist. Der Strand selbst ist ein Traum, er wird täglich gereinigt und geglättet, die Mülleimer werden ständig geleert, es stehen genügend Toiletten und Duschen zur Verfügung. Das Hotel ist gut ausgestattet, man kann Fahrräder ausleihen oder auch Surfbretter. In der Früh gibt es kostenlos Kaffee und Milch, am Nachmittag ein Glas Wein. Unser Badezimmer war gut ausgestattet mit Dusche und Wanne, unser Zimmer hatte einen Balkon zum Pazifik, den wir aber nicht genutzt haben (Lärm), aber die Aussicht war optimal. Das Fitnesstudio wurde gerade renoviert und stand nicht zur Verfügung.
