Rooms & Rates

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 on-site restaurant, Zimzala, is relaxed, serving breakfast until 11am (2pm on weekends). 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 5-6pm 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 5am-10pm).

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.
