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.

I had to quickly book a room for my son and friend whilst visiting family in Huntington Beach Harbour and I was so pleased I put them up in here! It was right after that big rain storm hit the area in late Jan; I had booked two queen beds in standard room but apparently there was some storm damage...

Thank you so much Cathy for reviewing us on tripadvisor. I am glad that we were able to accommodate your son and make sure they had a good trip. Please think of us again if you are in the Sunset Beach area.

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.

Where do I even begin!? When I originally booked this hotel I had booked a suite, well the day we were supposed to fly out we got news that my boyfriend's dad was killed while on vacation.

Stayed for one night and found it in a great location right on highway 1 and the beach a few short steps away. Parking is on site, check in was quick and the guy was really friendly. The room was spacious and clean with a view of a bit of ocean too! The Brix Sunset bar nearly next door is...

This charming little hotel was the perfect base for us to explore the lovely beach towns of Orange County. Located between the PCH and beach road just north of Huntington Beach, our balcony room gave us a partial view of the gorgeous Pacific, with beach access just steps across the quiet palm tree-lined road. The Ocean Surf Inn oozes that...

Great price for the hotel and the room was neat and very nice. The only issue was there was construction going on on our floor and that was pretty loud and obnoxious and when we turned on the jacuzzi in our room, some black stuff came out but it cleared away. The staff was very kind and overall I would...

I am so sorry that you got caught up in our construction. With this rain we unfortunately had a few rooms get flooded and the repairs were needed immediately. Please check us out again - we should be done by the end of this month! I appreciate the kind words despite the noise.

We stayed for two nights when visiting Huntington Beach in early November. The place was easy to find. Check in was quick and smooth. The room we got was specious and clean, bed was comfortable. We enjoyed free breakfast on a roof terrace. For our beach stay we could borrow beach towels and beach chairs, which was a great bonus....
