My wife and I stayed in several hotels during our recent visit to America (including Chicago and New York). This was definitely the best value! A good, traditional breakfast was included in the price and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We held our annual Ahman Green VIP Party with Green Bay Packer's All-Time leading rusher Ahman Green and after talking to several hotels in the Rockford area, we were absolutely thrilled with our decision to choose Cliffbreakers. General Manager Chris Kontos was extremely helpful with all of our needs and went far beyond to ensure that we were happy with... More

We were celebrating a Birthday and were familiar with Cliffbreakers location. The servers were first class and the food was delicious. We did enjoy the brunch and the Station cooks. The view each time we dined was awesome and we were able to sit outside after dinner and enjoy the beautiful weather. The only negative we had was our room.... More

Loved everything about this place; The View, The Ambience, the People, and the Room. Rooms were large and spacious. The Beds were comfortable and the Breakfast was First Class. Would gladly visit and stay here again. Snacks at the Night bar were a little pricey but glad they were there. Would be even excellent if the Bar was open on... More

Our daughter's wedding was simply beautiful from start to finish. We received so many compliments on the Renaissance Room,the appetizers and the food. The staff was great and helped make the day truly remarkable. Special thanks to Brandon who helped with all the planning and Roxy who was so very patient helping with reservations. I would highly recommend Cliffbreakers for... More

We stayed here this past weekend for an out-of-town wedding. We were shocked the moment we stepped inside the lobby. It was loaded with great wood working and it looked spotless. The attendant checked us in quickly and we arrived at our room. It was very nice, very large room and it over looked the water. The best part was... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Cliffbreakers. We were in town for a wedding. What a wonderful surprise! Top notch hotel. Retro to the 1900s. Beautiful views of the river from the rooms and the breakfast area. Hot Breakfast that included eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, waffles, french toast, juice and fruit. Very elegant atmosphere. The rooms were spacious. Would recommend... More

This past weekend, we stayed at Cliffbreakers. I am disabled and count on being able to use Handicapped Parking. To my disappointment, there are only 2 handicapped spots near the main entrance. With 105 guest rooms, I would guess that more than 2 of guests are handicapped. Of course both spots were filled. Requiring me to walk a distance on... More

We're very sorry that you visit fell short of your expectations. We work hard to be sure that every guest is thrilled and apologize that we failed to do so for you. There's simply no excuse for that. Our hotel and the many ballrooms are the most popular in Rockford for weddings, family reunions and business meetings. As part of... More

Cliffbreakers is a modestly priced hotel with interesting architecture from around the world. Carved woodwork and ornate fountains make it unique and beautiful....but the hotel never reaches its full potential. My beautiful 2nd floor view was blocked by a grove of Sumach trees. The glorious fountains would be more beautiful if they had water in them and working. The magnificent... More
