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.

Too much unnecessary extra charges.

Posted Dec 26, 2016
Pros: 1) Hotel has nice location near the beach and shopping stores. 2) Staff was friendly. 3) Early check-in w/o extra charges. Cons: 1) It's mandatory to pay $25 for recreational facilities even though you're not using any. 2) There's no free parking for hotel guests: you either pay for metered parking, or $35 daily valet parking, both of w/c are very expensive. 3) On the itinerary it states the deposit would be $100, but my card was charged $129.

Hi Alyssa, thank you so much for giving us your feedback of your stay. I am so sorry to hear your disappointments. Our resort fee allows us to provide great amenities to our guests such as beach items, bike cruiser, smores on our deck, and much more. Due to our location parking is definitely competitive in the area and with our valet services you get a secure unlimited parking access.

Hotel within walking distance of Main street

Posted Dec 23, 2016
Pros: Excellent staff! Very close proximity to beach and Main street restaurants and shops. Hotel provided activities for children.
Cons: I was offended by the "art" in the rooms which included girls in bikinis and some with their butt cracks showing. Not appropriate for children.
Location: Many restaurants and quaint shops.. plus the beach is right across PCH. We rented a bicycle for four and pedaled down the boardwalk ..
Check in was a breeze... they have the most uplifting and pleasantly helpful staff anywhere... everyone always had a smile on their face. We stayed only one night but wished it could have been many more.

Still like new in decor and upkeep. Location is fantastic, we never touched the car during our stay. Restaurant menu is quite short and some items not so good - but there are dozens of restaurants in walking distance. The daily wine sampling is fun. Fitness room just re-done - very nice. Staff all very helpful and friendly.
