A surfer's haven fused with just the right amount of chic, the Shorebreak Hotel is located in the original Surf City USA (Huntington Beach) and set across the street from 8.5 miles of uninterrupted Southern California sands and the 2-mile-long state park.

The new on-site restaurant, Pacific Hideaway, features coastal cuisine, local beer, craft cocktails and California wine. There is no pool or hot tub, but the hotel has a fitness center, fire pits with s'mores, ping pong and oversized Connect Four, Jenga and chess. After a day on the beach, hurry back in time for the complimentary wine hour, held in the lobby from 5-6 p.m. every day.

Bright and breezy rooms offer plenty of space, Hawaiian-print armchairs and sliding French doors, and are surprisingly quiet, despite the road-side location. Upgrade to a suite for a separate sitting room. Cozy Courtyard rooms overlook the inviting fire pits and festive games, while Waterfront rooms offer views of the ocean and the iconic pier. Pets are welcome at no extra charge, and there is a dog beach a 20-minute walk north (open 5 a.m. - 10 p.m.).

Huntington Beach is just north of Newport and Laguna beaches, and is home to the annual U.S. Open of Surfing. The hotel is set on the Strand retail complex and near prime restaurants -- don’t miss the oceanfront dining at Duke’s, named after surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku.

I was always cold in the common areas because they had all the doors open all the time they did provide blankets but really shouldn’t have to use when sitting in the restaurant indoors!

We have nothing but positives to say about this place and wish we could’ve spent more time. It hits all categories: Beachy ambience, I’ll come in and competent staff, tasty restaurant and drinks, clean rooms that are quiet and comfortable. Lots to do here at the hotel including games, fire pits, and activities like yoga as well.

We stay in Huntington Beach every Christmas and this is the second time we have stayed at the Shorebreak. We like to travel with our Labrador Retriever and The Shorebreak is SO dog friendly- We loved it! Loved the happy hour, activities (even free yoga) and breakfast at the hotel. The gym is way more than expected and we worked out almost every day. I came home just a little bit sore from trying out the 'Mirror' workouts, my daughter loved trying the Peloton and the gym was clean, well maintained and equipped. Loved it. My only complaint was our partying neighbors on Saturday night, but that is not the hotel's fault and they responded when we called about the noise. We will be back!

Definitely recommend! Can't beat the location and we really enjoyed our stay with our grown kids and our 4 legged furry kid!

The coolest beach vibe at a high end resort with excellent customer service. All employees were friendly and helpful. “Q” ( that was his first name) checked us in and made us feel right at home. Dogs are welcomed guests and while we didn’t bring a dog we did enjoy getting to know everyone’s dog. Don’t miss the free wine/beer social hour every evening. Such a great sense of community in this hotel! Can’t wait to go back .
