We booked a two night getaway for my birthday. My boyfriend booked a water front view, with balcony, which we planned on spending a lot of time on. The inside of the rooms were cute although the bathroom was very tight for the price of the room per night. The view was lovely. We hurried home on our first full... More

The hotel is charming, stayed there with a group of family and friends for a wedding. We had booked our rooms months in advance and a group of us had reserved the king waterview rooms with a porch. When we arrived, the owner and the Innkeeper had downgraded our rooms because another group was not satisfied with their non-porch rooms.... More

Just returned from the Breakwater Inn & Spa and wanted to write a favorable review of the property/experience. Property Location The property is located about 1 mile off of the main strip directly across from The Colony and Mabel's Claw. The campus is actually split by a building and it is a two-minute walk from the Spa-side to the restaurant... More

We booked this property mainly because they offered a fitness facility. Their literature is very clear that the facility is open until 8:00 pm each evening through November. We rushed through our drive up the coast to get there by 6:30 for a workout, only to be advised that the facility would close at 7:00 pm. We were also advised... More

The Breakwater Inn and Spa is a perfect retreat from the real world of stress, worry and rushing around. Beautifully situated where the river and ocean meet, every area of the hotel seemed to offer yet another breathtaking view. Upon arrival we were shown to our room in the Spa building and around the property a bit. It was all... More

Our second stay at Breakwater and we were extremely pleased. We had a spacious 4th floor room with beautiful views of the harbor river. Rooms ( large and spacious)have a somewhat summer theme with blue paint and white trim. Staff very friendly and helpful. Resort and grounds very clean. New spa and exercise room truly amazing and rivals any 4... More

Their website stated all the rooms had HDTV and flat screens, that was not the case. We had a room in the spa building (a very small room I might add), and as in a previous review, the a/c unit was to lound to have on at night. Staying in the spa building made us feel isolated from the rest... More

We finished off our 2-week New England road trip in Maine and chose this hotel for its location and crisp pretty look on their website. Far too often websites can be deceiving as their photos are far better than the place in reality; however I’m happy to say that the Breakwater Inn is every inch as pretty and wonderful as... More

True, a tranquil waterfront location a bit out of town, but that was just what my husband and I were looking for. Friendly service, excellent seafood in the Stripers Waterfront Restaurant and I absolutely loved the interior. A perfect mixture of old (the house apparently dates from the 1800's) and new, fresh whites and light blues. Very harmonious and soothing.... More
