We booked the Breakaway because of its excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed. It is in a perfect location for walking to the beach, restaurants and bars, and there is a supermarket close by. Margaret is lovely and very helpful. We had originally booked an efficiency but were given a one bedroom apartment. It had loads of space, everything we... More

Hotel is three blocks from the beach, quiet, well maintained. Our third time here, management is very friendly and responsive. very nice grounds and pool. Any time we stay in Lauderdale By The Sea, this is the first place we check for a room.

I hesitate to even write this as I would like it to be my little secret so I could always get a room! The grounds are nicely maintained and inviting. The pool is very clean. The 1 bedroom apartment is just the right size for 2-4 people with amble space. The location is quiet, 2 blocks and an easy walk... More

This motel appears somewhat dated from the exterior, but is in a good state of repair and appears to be very well maintained. Our room was in a good state of repair and appeared modern with a very good bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. Common areas including the pool. And garden appear well maintained and well provided with furniture... More
