Stayed for four nights while attending a conference in Newport. Location is great, with the beach just a few minutes away across the pacific coast highway, and downtown Huntington Beach and the pier within easy walking distance. A good (reliable Hilton standard) sized room, partly renovated, and with some views. The hotel has a decent restaurant and a nice (smallish)...

Didn't provide value for money - if anything everything was overpriced. No resort activities or facilities so not sure why they name their hotel as a resort. Room is basic. Pool is not heated. No poolside service. Food choice is limited. Stay somewhere else which provides better value for money and a better experience.

We loved our time at the Waterfront Hilton in Surf City USA. The view of the sea coast and the pier was worth the expense!! The hotel staff was especially accommodating and ever so friendly. The hotel property is all around beautiful. Great location to walk downtown and the hotel's shuttle service made it easy to return to the hotel...

We are only live 30 minutes away, but this was exceptional vacation for a weekend away. Staff was wonderful, rooms beautiful, and pool a full day event. Love being close to HB pier and main street. Lots of things to see and eat/drink... 6 stars for me!!!!

I stay at this property quite frequently on business, and always have a good experience. The staff is friendly and willing to help from valet parking to the front desk to the bartender. The location is great, with most rooms having a nice view of the ocean. Easy walk to good food and shopping, especially on Tuesday nights when the...

Dear Z6858WMrobertm, Thank you for your recent review and comments about our property. You may have noticed that there is no building of hotels or private property (with one small experimental exception of condos near the pier that will never be repeated) for over 10 continuous miles. Unobstructed Pacific beauty and open public access are the name of the game...

The hotel is great, but the best part was how amazing all of the staff was. Every single person we ran into was professional, kind and helpful. We will be back for sure . I highly recommend a room ending in an even number that is higher (Ex:1018)

Stayed at this hotel for business meeting. View of the beach from our room was very nice, however, dampened by the sound of Pacific Coast Highway and construction next door. The hotel room's interior is dated and dirty. Carpet was so filthy it had an odor. Very glad that I spent only one night here. Good walking distance to Huntington...

No options for free or self parking at this hotel price seems a bit unaccommodating. The construction noise was pretty loud and started before 7am, they disclose that it should start at 8am - kinda eliminates luxury and sleep I would deem requirements at this price point.
