Overall I had a good experience at this hotel. Kimpton does such a neat job branding each of their communities to match their neighborhood, and this one definitely has the surfing vibe. If you choose an ocean view room you'll be able to look across the road to the beach, which is beautiful. They have free beach cruisers which is...

My recent hotel stay at the Shorebreak was perfect in every way. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiling faces and great service. The valet/bellman team were so helpful and patient. We were traveling with our two little ones and it took us a little longer to get situated but everyone was so accommodating. Matthew at the...

My twin sister and I stayed at the Shorebreak for three nights to celebrate our birthday.

We stayed one night in the Queen Courtyard Room. They had plenty of amenities and you could ask for additional amenities at the front desk. The shower amenities were salon quality. The room rates were cheaper/comparable to the other hotels in Huntington, but the Shorebreak has quick access to Main Street, restaurants and shops, the pier, and the beach. Shorebreak...

Thank you to the Kimpton staff who made our 1st anniversary stay so memorable! When we entered our beautiful ocean view room we were surprised to find a '1st anniversary' banner hung in our room along with a bottle of wine, cupcakes (very yummy, where did you get them?), and cookies on the desk. We loved the sweet gesture. The...

I was looking forward to staying in this hotel given it's oceanfront location and the association with the Kimpton brand but I found myself underwhelmed with the reality. The website was clear in that the restaurant was undergoing renovation this spring but it explicitly said that in room dining was available. Upon checking in, I learned that was not the...
