I have been visiting the BREAKERS since it opened. It has gotten better each year. We spent a great weekend there at the end of this season. The service was great. Everyone was so friendly. The front desk staff offered suggestions of things to do and restaurants where we could eat. The housekeeping staff was efficient and friendly. The weekend... More

I've stayed at many places in O.C. since early childhood. I've stayed further out on the bay, further in off the boardwalk and of course, on the boardwalk. My vacation budget is far from huge, so it's always a bit of a struggle to make a decision where to stay and which establishment deserves my hard earned money. I've been... More

The owner, Julie Gibbs, has terrible customer services skills. I paid for a two nights stay and only stayed for one night. Knowing I wouldn't be refunded, I refused to stay another night in that establishment. Julie Gibbs greeted me with hostility, unprofessionalism and total DISRESPECT!! I have never been spoken to in such a manner as I was yesterday.... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great and we were able to walk to our favorite spots on the boardwalk. The room was larger than what we had expected for a standard room. The room was clean and the service was very good. The front desk staff was very friendly and courteous. We will stay here again on... More

We are return patrons. All mature, professional women. Within ten minutes of arriving, the owner Julie was at our door, screaming at us and cursing. My fiancé brought my luggage to the room for me, and was planning on leaving directly. Julie saw him on camera and assumed we were sneaking him in. She insulted him, and called all 6... More

I have been staying at Breaker's with my best friends and a few family members since I had a bachelorette party there several years ago. Let me first start off by saying that we have always gotten the two room ocean front suite, which cost us over $1600, each stay. Last August during our stay, having six females sharing one... More

We have been coming to this hotel each summer for 8 years. The location is PERFECT. On the boardwalk and accessible to everything. When we first came the kids were teen & pre-teen. The hotel was always accommodating with their service, happy to see us and a pleasure to be at. As the kids got older we started needing different... More

We planned a last minute beach trip and we were excited to get a standard room at this hotel. The location was great and we were pleasantly suprised at the size of a standard room. It was huge. It was very clean and the maidservice was great. Kids swam in the indoor pool one day. Only downfall was no veiw... More

great hotel. It is fairly new, extremely clean , quiet, and right on the boardwalk. Rates are somewhat expensive however. Has an indoor pool. Staff was friendly enough. Nice pizza restaurant just downstairs from the hotel called the doughboy--very good pizza and can dine in.

We were looking for two rooms in Ocean City at the last minute and The Breakers was one of the few hotels that was available. The hotel room was quite large and extremely clean. The location was great, on the boardwalk, yet the room was quiet. We usually stay at a different hotel, but I actually will be staying here... More
