Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I LOVE this hotel! The service is excellent! I brought my 2 dogs and they were so accommodating to them as well. VERY dog friendly! They have a nightly happy hour with beer and wine too. A nice courtyard with fire pits and corn hole and ping pong table. I would 100% stay here again!

If all of Kimpton properties are like Kimpton HB, then their brand has win me over. I have never reviewed a hotel or cruise because although the stays were pleasant, I have never been swept off my feet from start to finish. For comparison, I've stayed at various Ritz Carltons, the Omni, Bellagio, and other major resorts in Vegas, Miami, and SoCal.

You walk into the lobby and the entire place smells amazing. Its dog friendly throughout. The "library" has a curated selection of vinyls to check out during your stay. Their happy hour has a hosted bar of wine and craft beer (pours are from a local brewery called 4sons). Theres a pingpong table & foosball table that I saw many families and adults take advantage of. Surfing pictures throughout hotel & rooms, celebrating the local surf culture.

The courtyard was amazing. The fire pits and patio seating were inviting. They even had corn hole (my favorite)! It felt like the entire hotel was designed for you to have fun. Oh yea! Bikes and surfboards to rent too! We borrowed their bikes and rode 5 minutes to the beach.

Staff was nice, friendly and accommodating (from front desk to restaurant).

Restaurant: We ate at the restaurant for brunch (vacation crepes & hideaway hash benny w/ a side of longinisa sausage) @ dinner (mussels, crab cakes, stripe bass). The food had a SE Asian & Latin influence to then that I thought added distinction to other food options in the area. It was a busy spot for brunch and dinner. Lots of friends and family gatherings for birthdays and get-togethers. In fact, they were booked solid until 8pm on Friday when we arrived so we made a reservation for Saturday.

Rooms: we were upgraded to a suite with an ocean view (yeah!). I was impressed with our enormous bathroom. It had a separate walk in shower & soaking tub, perfect for after a long day at the beach. Their toiletries smelled amazing. Really liked how they used full sized pump bottles instead of those small sample size toiletries.

We just got home from a mini vacay at the Kimpton Shorebreak. We love, love, loved this hip, stylish, down to Earth hotel. It’s laid back style and beach vibe made us feel at home and on vacation at the same time. It is in the perfect location to enjoy the beach, restaurants, and shopping, all within walking distance.

I can honestly say the resort fee here is well worth it. Most hotels charge a resort fee for a workout room and a newspaper. Here is what we enjoyed at the Kimpton: daily morning coffee, including cold brew directly from the keg, a hot chocolate bar with what looked like homemade marshmallows and a selection of fancy honey. There is a beer and wine hour for guests with no extra fee. They have multiple fire pits on the patio complete with cozy Mexican style blankets and s’mores kits. There are foosball and ping pong tables and a beanbag tossing game. They have bikes, surfboards, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas all for guest use at no extra charge.

The best part, though, is the VINYL RECORD LIBRARY! Our room had a record player and we could select records to enjoy.

The Kimpton Shorebreak is a truly pet friendly hotel. No fees, no b.s., they really love dogs! Our boy, Roscoe, got his picture on the VIP (very important pets) board and was greeted warmly by every staff member we met. He even got a parting gift when we check out.

Oh, and breakfast! The restaurant offers interesting food that reflects the beach culture. No fake scrambled eggs and wilted breakfast meats here.

Our room was absolutely lovely; the bathroom was an oasis: a soaking tub with bath salts, and the shower has dual heads.

We are already planning our next visit.

Very cute boutique hotel, steps away from the pier!

I stayed here for a business meeting and really enjoyed it.

The front desk staff was very friendly and they offered to text me as soon as my room was ready as I arrived very early. They also texted during my stay to check on me and after I checked out to get my feedback. Kudos for service!

My room was cute and comfortable, with a sound machine, record player, and a yoga mat! Their toiletries smelled good and I liked the oolong tea shower gel.

The amenities are great: you can borrow bikes for free. There are free s’mores you can enjoy in the outside fire pits, free wine and beer in the lobby at 5pm, free spa water in the lobby, free coffee in the am. The lobby/outdoor terrace has a lot of seating areas, a ping pong table, giant chess set, etc. The restaurant has indoor/outdoor seating with a cute mural.

The meeting room we used, the Bungalow, had natural light and a terrace that was perfect for a change of atmosphere during meals. The food was good and banquet servers were attentive.

Can’t beat the location for Hunting Beach: walk to the pier, the beach, and Pacific City for restaurants and shops.

Highly recommended!

My daughters and I stayed in an oceanview room with two queen beds. I usually love Kimpton properties, at least before their acquisition by IHG. The location is great, and the staff was good, but that's about it. Our visit was our first getaway in the time of COVID, and we expected social distancing and masks. Well, not so much. Aside from hotel staff, who were all wearing masks and gloves, there is no policy or request that guests and visitors wear masks. So, everywhere we went in the hotel, the lobby, elevators, stairways, etc., we had to try and avoid unmasked people. Not very relaxing. And wait for later elevators to avoid getting packed in with 5 other unmasked people. Beyond that, the room smelled musty and the vehicle noise coming from PCH made it unpleasant to keep the sliding glass door open. The air conditioning was also very noisy and the bathroom lacked basic amenities such as lotion or q-tips. You can pass on the room service breakfast too. The pancakes were dry and the breakfast burrito just okay (the french fries in the burrito did not appear to be fully cooked). For a total price after exorbitant city taxes and "resort fees" of over $525 a night, I expected a little more. So, I won't be returning. Sorry. I take no pleasure in writing negative reviews.

P K, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience with us. Orange County is strongly recommending that while in public if social distancing cannot be achieved that masks are worn, this is what we are letting each of our guests checking in with us know. We are also making them aware we have masks available at the front desk for them to use. We have limited the amenities that we have preset in our guestrooms to reduce the amount of items a guest can touch, however all these amenities are still available by request and we will bring sanitized ones to the room. We appreciate your feedback. Best, Helen B. Director of Rooms, Shorebreak

I loved staying at the Kimpton Shorebreak hotel! (End of August / beginning of September, 2020.) You CANNOT beat the location. You are literally downtown Huntington Beach… on the beach. I enjoyed the layout of the hotel for this reason as well - the lobby area isn’t gigantic so you can get from your room to outside in no time. The room I stayed in was very spacious and had a bathtub I could basically swim laps in. I also had a gorgeous view of the ocean and incredible sunsets. One of my favorite parts about the room, though, was the ease in which you can stream your own media apps to your TV. The staff was fun, friendly and very quick with service. (You can just text them with anything you need.) Shout out to Alex at the front desk! The hotel restaurant, Pacific Hideaway, is excellent too. Great food, and even more spectacular drinks. The hotel has a very cool vibe to it overall, with just the right amount of quirk. Can’t wait to visit again!

It makes me so happy to hear how much you loved staying with us hugsandkittens. I’m stoked you enjoyed our oceanfront location right in downtown Huntington Beach, walking distance to everything. Its hard to decide what’s best – soaking in an oversized tub, watching the sunset over the ocean, or digging in to delicious bites and drinks at our Pacific Hideaway restaurant. Luckily you didn’t have to choose between them. I’ll share the kudos with Alex at the front desk. We can’t wait to have you join us again. Cheers, Justin Simpson General Manager

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this beach resort! The location is ideal - it’s close to restaurants, shopping, and of course the beach. And there is also plenty to do right there at the resort to keep you occupied including fire pits with free s’mores, games and more. Plenty of comfy seating and outdoor space to lounge around and read the paper or a good book. Free coffee in the morning and a Free wine happy hour in the evening! The gym is a good size with a ton of equipment. The restaurant and bar have great food. Breakfast was amazing. Rooms and resort were very clean and comfy. The service from each person I encountered was second to none. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I would and definitely plan to stay again.

Here are my only small...tiny...minor complaints: 1) Parking is as kinda pricey. 2) I also found room service to be a little expensive. $15 breakfast tacos ended up being over $30. But It’s cool. Just go down to the restaurant, sit on the patio and soak up the sun instead! 3) I was in a room that must have been close to a machine or something because there was a noise that almost sounded like construction. Not every night but once or twice. And I was near an service door so I think I was hearing staff come in and out very early. 4) May be trivial to some, but fire pits are turned off at 10. Wish it stayed on longer because I could seriously sit out there all night.

Really, there is so much positive that I hate to point out these little things. That’s the only reason I took away a star. But overall I seriously adore this place and I highly recommend it.

Hi beachmealready, Thanks for taking the time to share your solo trip experience at Shorebreak and mentioning our killer location! We loved hosting you and take great pride in making sure our guests are comfortable from the guest rooms and restaurant/bar to The Gym and courtyard with fire pits. Our room service pricing is standard with service and delivery fees, and while eating from the comfort of your room is fantastic, nothing beats a bite or drink at Pacific Hideaway with pier and ocean views.

What more can you ask for? Clean rooms, friendly staff, close to beach, pier and every possible restaurant. We had a cute room, with a huge private balcony with a table and sun chair to lay out! In HB Tuesday's downtown is a street market, and made for an easy night out with vendors and bars. We used the free beach cruisers and rode to Bolsa Chica one am and to breakfast close after (they provide locks). The Hotel provides a nightly Free Happy Hour and outside smore's was a great touch. Wish we explored the hotel a little more, lots of funky wall art and such. We got the deal via Groupon, and I had no expectations of such a fun place to stay. We will return. Yes there is a Valet and Resort Fee, but you are staying at a higher end resort, and being from FL, we are quite used to Taxes and Fees on resorts. For kids, I would think 12 and up would enjoy this more than smaller children.

The Shorebreak is a wonderful place. They offer so much. The room was beautiful. I loved that it had its own record player, and you can go pick your own records to play or even Bluetooth your own phone. Was really nice listening to music while getting ready. The bathroom was huge plenty of room! But the best part was all the stuff they offer while you stay. Boogie boards, surf boards, bikes, you can use while you stay. Just saving tons of money on what you would pay just to rent that stuff. They also give you towels. They offer free beer and wine during a certain time. Also you can make s’mores during a certain time. They have some games that you can play. I’m sure they had so much more things to offer that I didn’t get a chance to check out. Even the food was delicious. My favorite part was that they are pet friendly. So if you want to bring your little doggie or even your big doggie they are welcome. Also they have valet parking, with the beach across the street and shopping and dining all around it was very convenient to just had the keys over and enjoy the day/night without worrying about the car and driving anywhere. This place is just amazing and worth every dollar!! 10/10

My spouse and I are avid travelers, and we’ve been to many hotels all over the world. This is our favorite hotel for many reasons. First: the manager, Omar, is excellent at his job and personally cares about each guest. He always goes above and beyond to make sure that the hotel is well run, clean, and highly accommodating to guests. He’s also very well liked and personable, even with difficult or cranky guests (my husband is one sometimes, hah), and he has the patience of a saint! He always has a friendly smile on his face and is the best manager this place has ever had so far (we’ve been coming here for years). Now on to the hotel review: WHAT A FUN PLACE!! The staff works hard to create such a relaxed, beachy, family-friendly/couple-friendly vibe that can’t be found at any other hotel. Each room is clean and decorated in a beach style with cool wave paintings on the walls, a vintage record player (with records to check out and listen to!) in each room, and ocean/pier proximity. There’s an outdoor courtyard with ping pong tables, giant chess, and fire pits with nightly s’mores. There’s a nightly happy hour and social hour at this hotel that is so fun and enjoyable and a great way to meet other travelers. This hotel has boogie boards, bikes, towels, and umbrellas to use free of charge, which makes going to the beach so easy and effortless. This hotel is also close proximity to all sorts of great restaurants, bars, and activities…but the best bar and restaurant are found right here at the Shorebreak Hotel. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel…I could write a book. But instead, I’ll just summarize this review by saying that Ritz Carlton, Montage, LidoHouse, or Marriott properties have nothing on this hotel due to its great management and staff, uniquely fun location, amenities, and warm atmosphere. It’s why my husband and I chose this hotel for our honeymoon. Kudos, Shorebreak! Keep up the great work! We’ll keep coming back…forever!

I’ll make sure to share your compliments with him. Friendly, helpful service is our first priority and I love to hear this feedback from you. The in-room record players are one of my favorite features, along with the library I personally curated for our guests. Our restaurant, Pacific Hideaway is our secret little gem and a favorite with locals. My favorite dish is our Lao Hash Benny. What was yours?
