The catering staff went beyond out expectations. Cocktail hour on the porch was outstanding (mashed potato bar, burger sliders, sausage and peppers), the reception was amazing. Dona, the concierge for our event, anticipated our needs and the staff could not have been more professional and accommodating. Our room was small but clean and had a great view. Very nice pool....

Great hotel, in front of the beach. We dont go in summer. Nice restaurant. Great views of the beach and the pool. Dont miss the Main Street in Spring Lake where there are nice cute stores. They are not chain stores. There are also some restaurants and an icecream parlor.

Stayed here for a wedding. The location to the beach is a few steps. The views were great. The pool area is perfect for taking a quick dip after being on the beautiful beach. The room was very good size and so clean. The beds are super comfortable and good pillows too. The wedding we went to was actually at... More

This hotel is in an excellent location, but could use some updating. Room reminds of a motel 6. Bed is very uncomfortable and could be replaced. Wifi is very sketchy and when you can connect it's very slow. NO PARKING, not even valet parking. Parking is only available on the street. During the day it's impossible to find parking because...

Not impressed at all. Had to pay in advance with a check to secure reservation. Valet parking and parking in general a mess. Staff had zero personality and enthusiasm for the guests. I got a deceiving description over the phone for the oceanfront room we got. An old noisy air conditioner in the wall. The place needs to be refurbished.... More

We really liked this hotel. The pool was terrific but too cold to swim in (July 1, 2015). The walk to the ocean is super short and the beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. The room was pretty small for the price we paid.....and no microwave. The view was nice. I'm not sure that we would stay here... More

Dear 226nancys. During this very busy season, we adhere to a strict cancellation policy. We have a limited number of rooms and last minute cancellations affect us significantly. Situations such as yours are not uncommon and we treat each cancellation the same. As you mentioned, we held one of our most popular oceanfront rooms for you and your friend for... More

The Breakers is a lovely ocean side hotel. The rooms are clean, there's a pool, and it's directly across from the beach. The king sized bed was super comfortable, but the room we had was small with a limited ocean view, as there were no other options for the dates we chose. We had dinner here on the first night....

My mom is old school and called this hotel over the phone to make a post-July 4th reservation. She provided her credit card information over the phone and was confirmed for Monday night. A few days later, she called back and found out they had an opening for the Sunday night as well, so we extended for two nights. Great!... More
