Most rooms have an ocean view but I would recommend one on the pier side for a nice sunset. Ocean front role can be a little noisy as PCH is between the hotel and the beach. Check in was fast and easy. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. The small lanai was nice for an evening drinks....

If making plans to vacation in Huntington Beach - this is the hotel! You will be treated well - the customer service is excellent, the rooms clean and comfortable and the food mouthwatering. It will be a vacation to remember.

We live about 30 minutes inland but wanted to spend the night at the beach. The hotel was very nice. We were upgraded to a corner suite which had a great view. The staff was wonderful. The restaurant was OK but not great. There is a store on the property that is way overpriced so walk a little to find...

I have stayed at this property as an event planner holding an event in the ballroom as well as a guest who gets to enjoy the property amenities. Every single time the service level supersedes any luxurious resort in Orange County, which is not an easy feat! The staff members in every department go above and beyond the call of...

It was just a bad experience overall. No maid service, extremely slow room service. No one seemed to care. Construction or not, I expected better. Given the lousy room view of the construction I would have expected a bit more in the way of accommodating effort.

Our room was comparable to any 3 star hotel. We were on the 6th floor & located well away from the elevators. The rooms are not very sound proof as we heard a lot of commotion in the hallway & in the room next to ours. It settled down after about an hour of kids shouting & running up and...

Dear Rocky R., Thank you for your review. We appreciate all of your comments and apologize for the noise issues. Often the young ones get a little over excited the second they lay eyes on the ocean and realize they are here... but our highly trained staff can usually get them to settle down and get "into the groove" of...

The staff is amazing and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The room had a balcony and a beautiful view of the ocean. Beds, linens and amenities were very nice. We walked to the beach, the Pier and Main Street. Yes, there was a lot of construction in the area but it didn't affect our stay...
