“There are better options”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This hotel is very over-priced. Room was tired and in need of refurbishing. Road between hotel and beach was annoying. Staff was not as friendly and helpful as other Hiltons in the area which I don't understand. You'd think Hilton would have uniform standards for their employees. Pool/hot tub area is very nice. Restaurant is okay but again, very pricey.

This was the second straight year we chose to celebrate our anniversary at this hotel. It was our 42nd anniversary. We live less than an hour away from the hotel but it felt the same as if we had flown to Hawaii. Same ocean, same ambience! And we plan to do it again!

This is one of the best resort hotels in which I have stayed, having stayed in many such hotels around the world. I would definitely recommend this resort hotel to anyone traveling to Southern California. One gets what they paid for at this hotel.

The H.B. Hilton is a beautiful facility and the staff is very professional and nice. A little too much geared for the "kids" but overall a nice clean place. The parking fees are outrageous. $30 for overnight valet service and $50 to park your car yourself! If you have two vehicles that is an additional $60 dollars added on to your hotel room charge. WAY too much. You should not be charged to park your own car.

I have stayed at the Waterfront Hilton in Huntington Beach, California quite a few times and the service gets better every time we visit. The staff is extrememly helpful. We have two dogs and everyone was very helpful, even when one of them got sick and needed help.

Hubby and I wanted a cozy getaway...and this was the perfect place! We are newly married, and just needed another quick trip just for us. There were a lot of families there with kiddos, so it definitely made us want to come back with our daughter. We were so close to the beach, and local restaurants. Overall, this was the perfect place for us to recharge our batteries. Not to mention that it was very romantic. The staff, from check-in to check-out, were so friendly! The room was a 10 out of 10!

I stayed there for a meeting, drove down from LA, the night prior, check in was efficient, and quick. I took my own bags up to the room. View was fantastic, with beach horizon view. Typical hilton room, lobby bar was packed, but quick service, and friendly. The meeting room the next morning was pretty, staff was efficient and friendly. Interesting family style foods.
