Boutique Hotel with excellent location across the street from the pier. Main St a block away. Excellent on site restaurant “Pacific Hideaway “ with outdoor eating. Excellent guacamole and drinks. Very helpful and friendly staff. Bell hops to check in & valet all 5 Stars. Free drinks at 5pm and voucher was pleasant surprise. Excellent time will be back.

The only thing I would change is the addition of a coffee pot, coffee and creamer available in the room. Nothing better than enjoying a cup of coffee still curled up on the bed. I hate getting up, getting dressed and going down to the lobby for coffee and especially finding out there is no coffee or creamer left!

They charge $35 for valet. The rooms were dirty there was still crumbs and stuff on the carpet. No pool or jacuzzi. They have fire pits but turn everything off at 10 so there is nothing to do at the hotel after 10. Front desk staff was rude and unprofessional After we checked out they charged for waters $17! They give free water in the lobby why would we spend $17 on water?!

Absolutely loved our stay. Perfect location. Clean. Friendly staff.

Super friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful location. Beautiful venue.

The property is great, it's in downtown HB with views of the ocean. It's located on the North Side of the Pier across PCH from the beach. The only downside is they do not have a jacuzzi or deck or anyplace to view the ocean head on if you do not have one of the front row rooms. Staff is super friendly. I work in the office building next door and know the area well. HB can get a little scuzzy at times but this is on 5th street so it's much nicer than Main Street, where my office is. Also, HB is a generally very friendly place to be. On the right days, with a good swell/waves, it's the best place to be.

The hotel was modern and very accommodating. When they say they’re dog friendly, they really are. They did not charge a fee or a pet deposit for my dog. When we checked in, they took a Polaroid picture of my dog and placed it on a hanging board with a picture of all the dogs staying there that day. The staff were super friendly and the room was very clean. I was expecting stains, odors, or hair on the carpet since they’re all dog friendly rooms but none of those were present. It was very close to the beach and local shops/restaurants. They offered $35 valet parking or $20/day self parking. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautifully styled hotel with the best amenities including bikes, s’mores, a wine hour, and records to play in the hotel room.

The must comfortable, clean and fun hotel to spend your weekend:)

Liked the easy beach access. Seems to be a party spot, lots of kid’s drinking and loud in the halls from time to time during the night,

We always enjoy the friendly, helpful staff that makes us feel at home and relaxed every visit

We love the staff! They are always friendly and very helpful giving directions around the neighborhood and suggesting restaurants, activities or events in the area.

Great! We always stay here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Cindy, I'm sorry to hear your experience wasn't the best- this is not the review that we are used to. Regarding the firepits and courtyard, it does close at 10pm due to city ordinance and to lower noise levels to respect all guests and local neighbors. We hope we can make your next experience much better- we know we can!
