A little disappointed in our room. The air conditioner was so loud it sounded like a plane landing every time it started , waking us up, the curtains hung so far from the window that the sun was beaming on our faces at 7am although they were totally shut and they hide the thermostat so you have to wrestle with a huge lamp to turn down the air. Just not what I had expected.

Hi eComm Girl! Thank you so much for choosing Kimpton Shorebreak. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you back soon!

5 out of 5

nice hotel - extremely friendly staff!

I travel frequently for vacations and would definitely recommend this place. It's a nice hotel located in the heart of Huntington and right across the street from the beach. The deal breaker for me is staff - these people are on point! We stayed for 5 days and both day and night shift employees went well beyond to accommodate us. We'll definitely be back next year.

Excellent location

Pros: I love the location, and I cannot say enough about the friendliness and courtesy of the staff. They were terrific.
Cons: Lamps on night tables for reading, as lights above the bed are not adequate and very high. Draperies behind desk difficult to open or close.
Location: The location of the Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel is perfect if you want to be in downtown Huntington Beach, close to the pier, beach, restaurants, shops.
Overall, I liked the Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel. It's a pet-friendly hotel, so if you have allergies you may wish to request one of their "pet-free" rooms. Although I don't have a pet, and didn't request one of those rooms, I found the room to be clean and quite comfortable, with a couple of small issues.

Not a good value

Pros: Walking distance to Main Street.
Cons: Small rooms. Over-priced. Sloppy deposit practices.
Location: Main Street, the beach, the pier, Pete's Mexican Food on 6th Street.
We pre-paid a room on Travelocity that featured: "King-sized bed, Ocean-view, balcony." We were willing to pay more because we were booking last minute and the Air Show was going on in Huntington Beach. When we arrived at the hotel we were very pleased with the location, it is one street north of Main Street and a short walk to the Huntington Beach Pier. The front desk staff was courteous, but not overly friendly. We gave them our credit card, and expected to a hold of $100.00 (for incidentals) and $25.00 (resort fee), because we pre-paid the $ 440.00 for the room on Travelocity. Instead the front desk put a hold on our credit card for $ 525.00 - which meant we had to search for an ATM to get cash for our weekend:-( The manager agreed that the front desk should not have put a hold for more than $125.00 and said that she called AmEx and had the hold released, but its Monday and the hold is still there. When we went to the room we assumed there was a mistake because it was literally 10 X 10 with a king size bed taking up the whole room, and a tiny one-person balcony with a hint of ocean if you stood on your tip-toes and looked north into the distance. We called the front desk and they said "nope, that's the room". Wow! What a disappointment! We don't mind spending money, but there is a point a reasonable value and this hotel did NOT have it. I'm a SoCal girl and I don't want people to think that WE think this hotel represents California luxury.

Michelle, I agree we are the perfect place to emerge yourself into Huntington Beach and the downtown atmosphere and restaurants. I am disappointed to read of your experience with your guest room. I am a little confused as our smallest room is approximately 295 sqft. Thank you for your feedback.
