Looked at different locations throughout the Huntington/Sunset Beach close to where our son lives. Wife and I are definite beach people so this was a consideration in our choice. The room itself was very clean and nicely furnished. Staff was top rate!! Very accommodating to any request that we had. We utilized their beach chairs and they even provided beach...

Located on Pacific Coast Highway on the northern border of Huntington Beach and Sunset Beach, My wife and I looked forward to our return visit to this hotel. Debbie, Reggie and the staff are wonderful and willing to help in any way possible. Great restaurants are nearby and downtown Huntington Beach is only a couple scenic miles down the road....

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and just a short walk to the beach. Staff were very nice and accommodating. Hotel was always clean and ample parking space for guests at the back of the hotel. Walking distance to some restaurants. Short 5-10 minutes ride to HB pier or dog beach . Would definitely recommend this to friends...

We booked a partial ocean view room and were not disappointed. The room was neat, clean, and a bit bigger than I expected. The bathroom was modern. The microwave and refrigerator let us make popcorn and cool our drinks. The balcony had seating for two and offered a partial view of the ocean, as promised. You can also get a...

Deb is a great host! Very helpful and kind. Hotel is adorable and comfortable. Just steps from the sand and surf, Harbour, and foody restaurants! Lots to walk to and close to other great beach towns and Disneyland.

Having formerly lived in the area I had no great expectations as beach hotels are generally very expensive. This is a hidden gem and I will definitely stay there any time I go back to visit. The rooms are very clean and bed is very comfortable. It is a non-smoking hotel and that means not even outside in the parking...

This is a cute, older hotel in a beach community and the staff is very friendly and helpful. However, this place is noisy! If your room is anywhere near the front desk you can hear every conversation going on even with the room door closed. You can hear conversations in the next room because the walls are very thin. There...

I am sorry you found our hotel too noisy. Perhaps the solution would have been the ear plugs. I hope you find another hotel that works for you if you come back to southern California.
