They are doing an amazing job of restoring this beautiful resort. I stayed in the least expensive room and it was huge. I had the best night sleep of any hotel. the bed was amazing. The art throughout the building is fantastic. They have a brochure for the walking tour. There is a trail over the bridge along the river.... More

The hotel may have seen better days, but it has an interesting eclectic feel with many different intricate European styles. Some areas seemed to have been in state of renovation with sample boards of materials and colors used in the meeting/common rooms. We had a Groupon and stayed only one night. We had the castle suite and it was clean.... More

We attended a wonderful wedding at cliffbreakers. We stayed in the hotel and had a very nice time. My husband enjoyed the pool. We enjoyed the resort bar after the wedding. The view is beautiful along the river. We attended Sunday brunch that was very accomadating for my daughters gluten allergy.

Real nice clean spacious rooms. Real old rustic feeling lobby, up to date modern rooms. The only downfall was the restaurant was closed Sunday night when we stayed. The walls are paper thin. Very nice welcoming staff.

I visited Cliffbreakers for a weekday business meeting, and was impressed with the Old World feel in the public rooms, including the woodwork, antiques, and the grand meeting rooms overlooking the river. The halls on the hotel side need a fresh coat of paint and brighter lighting, but my private room was clean and comfortable, and the meeting room nicely... More

We had the Honeymoon suite and the whirlpool was wonderful. We went to the bar and met the manager Roxy. Again a delightful person. The back bar was from Fauerbach Brewery, Madison Wisconsin. It...

The worst thing about this Rockford resort is that it is in Rockford. This is an older resort and is in need of some repair, but I definitely liked it. The price is reasonable. We got the 2 story suite with a river view for about $160 with tax. The elevator took about 60 seconds to go up one floor.... More
