My family and I went to the restaurant at The Breakers to celebrate a special birthday. I chose it since I had been here several times over the years. Last time was about 5 years ago. Well it has changed and not in a good way. The service was very slow and our waitress was very inexperienced . She didn't...

A friend had recommended this hotel. It was a great place to celebrate my friend's birthday - turning 60! There were 6 of us - in two rooms. Our room - a King suite - was very nice. However, we did have a couple of small problems. We had to turn the refrigerator way up to really make it cold....

Hubby and I spent last weekend there to celebrate our anniversary. The oceanfront location and beautiful, quite neighborhood were amazing. Bike riding was awesome. Hotel had storage for our bikes; very convenient. Non-commercial boardwalk is perfect as an escape from hectic lives. Restaurant has good food and great views from the porch. Whirlpool tub in a very nice, clean bathroom...

We stayed from April 30 to May 2nd, 2017. The room was a full ocean view and is updated (including a modern bathroom). Not only was the room excellent but the staff was very accommodating. Not only is the hotel a great place to stay but the restaurant is a great place to eat especially if you have an early...

Went to The Breakers in April for a girls get away. We had a room with two queens, which was perfect. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom was large with a spa tub, which we didn’t use, but looked ideal. The pre-season rates were reasonable and the beach was not crowded for a walk or collecting shells....

Went for lunch at the breakers with our family visiting from Denmark. We were seated at a table facing the ocean. Not only was the food great but the view was spectacular. Excellent service and all people helping us were very understanding of customer who don't understand or speak English

What a lovely find but its stuck in the early 80's! For prices and day commitments it needs to update with the times. June weekends never had a 2 night minimum and wasn't considered high season, what a shame! Also the fact that you need to mail a check and not use a credit card at this point is very...

I had my daughters wedding at The Breakers yesterday and it was lovely from start to finish. She was married at the venue and then we planned a buffet brunch/luncheon with open bar and a DJ in the Seashell Room. That room faces the ocean but only holds a maximum of 70 people. It was intimate and a beautiful setting....

We booked two nights at The Breakers for President's Day Weekend just to get out of town. The hotel offered a very good deal, 2 nights, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, and a check out at 2 PM on Monday. We were pleasantly surprised that the temperature hit 70 degrees that weekend and strolling on the boardwalk was very pleasant....
