We spent four days at the Waterfront Beach Resort and we had a wonderful time. The hotel property is amazing and has the perfect location on the beach and near Main Street. We had a great walk on the beach and we walked to dinner most nights. The only negative during our stay was that we had a hard time...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 December 2016 via mobile

Visited the Waterfront Hilton after Christmas with just my husband & 2 dogs. Our stay was delightful. You can't beat the location of the hotel. It's across from Huntington Beach which is a wonderful beach that even allows campfires at night. Very close to the pier, numerous shops & restaurants. New Pacific City shopping center just a block or two...

There was smoke and fog for most of the time that we were there. The standard of the food was well below par. I ordered an eggs Benedict that came in less than 30 seconds! The potatoes were almost cold and the eggs must have been cooked quite some time before. The cheese was melted and stuck to the plate....

Began every day with a swim in the pool and ended each day with a soak in the hot tub. There was construction project going on but they minimized the inconvenience. desk staff and valet were helpful with directions.

First the front desk staff is awesome. I had a long day of travel and they got me checked in and on my way in no time. They gave me a partial beach view which was awesome. They also took the time to inform me i was on the construction side which was no big deal. The construction did not...

I would have rated this hotel higher but they currently have a lot of construction taking place. They happened to be jackhammering the floor near the elevators when I visited on business. It was very, very noisy between 9 AM and 5 PM when I was in HB. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and...

My stay was during a recent business trip. The hotel was under construction, but the staff were respectful and kept noises to a minimum. The location is fantastic, within walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. If you go with children, you might want to bring some snacks, the gift shop doesn't offer healthy options and is a bit...
