The location is perfect. Hotel & staff are lovely. They are remodeling the restaurant which was a little disappointing.

Excellent hotel just a quick walk to the beach

Excellent customer service and very clean room. Great and spacious room layout. Very short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again!

Pricey and not that nice.

Posted Mar 12, 2017
They put us in a handicap accessible room. So we got a very weird shower. The shower head couldn't be aimed and only let out a fine mist that was almost horizontal and difficult to rinse off with. There was a hand shower (for handicap use) but it didn't work. The worst part of the experience was when the Valet service stole my expensive prescription sunglasses. My advice would be to stay away, as we will do for our next visit to Huntington Beach.

Ocean view room

Posted Feb 20, 2017
The hotel is overall very nice with excellent staff. however, it doesn't make me happy when I pay extra for an ocean view room and am given a room, That faces 6th street.

Great location and fun decor. Disappointed that the bar and lounge was under construction and we didn't know that when booking.

We've booked again!

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Pros: Pet friendly
Cons: Will be better when the restaurant opens
Location: Great little pub spots, the Huntington Beach pier, out side dining and clothes shopping
Within walking distance of everything. Great weekend getaway. Parked our vehicle with the staff, very pet friendly and access to bikes to ride around.

Trendy beach hotel with added touches!

Posted Jan 3, 2017
I really like the Kimpton brand as it's trendy, fresh and always provides nice little extras for its guests. Our stay at the Kimpton Shorebreak fit the bill. The location was the biggest reason we choose to stay here. It is right across the street from Huntington Beach, which is as close as it gets, and walking distance to nearby shops and restaurants. I loved the surf feel of the hotel and I'm glad we upgraded to the king size bed with a partial view (more so for the bed than the view). The room was small but had everything we needed and more (yoga mats!). We took advantage of the free happy hour and fireside s'mores at night, and borrowed towels to go to the beach during the day. We only stayed one night on our way down to San Diego but wished we stayed longer! The staff was also incredibly friendly! Go to the Acai King next door for amazing acai bowls! A bit pricey but worth it if you want something more than the standard chain hotels.
