The breakers is a hidden gem. Nice rooms,pool and family atmosphere. We always felt comfortable and relaxed. When you leave for the day, drop your key at the desk. When you come back your welcomed by name Only advice is to stay in the middle of the property. Can get a little nosey.

Visited for 9 nights January 8-18th. My first visit was 49 years ago with my parents and I remembered it as a fun place to stay even then. Love the open air concept of the rooms. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and "pets", 2 cats and Bul Bul the bird are an added bonus. Close to the beach... More

We traveled here many years ago, but felt the need to give our impression. We thankfully were only staying here 3 nights before traveling to another island. One morning as my dad went to take a shower, a rat had somehow found its way into the shower. GROSS!!! It was horrible!!! It was running all over the bathroom and eventually... More

We were transiting in Honolulu on a very busy weekend and wanted to find a decently priced hotel in a good location. With mediocre hotels at around $200 plus that night, we were scrambling to find a hotel that offers good value. We decided on the Breakers Hotel and emailed/called the hotel directly for rates and information the week before... More

Quiet old Hawaiian motel. Close to everything. Beach 2 blocks away. But I loved just hanging out at the pool. Peaceful. There were no kids which was super great, but everyone looked 65 & older. They all loved to sit under the tree and talk starting @ 7am, which was abit of a bummer since are room was right above... More

I returned to The Breakers after a 10 year absence… my family has been going to the Big Island in recent years, but it was good to be back in Waikiki. The Breakers is a very good choice to start a vacation in Waikiki in a quiet, low key way. The low rise, Old Hawaii hotel has not changed in... More

Staying near Waikiki Beach in the heart of Honolulu doesn't have to cost a fortune. The Breakers Hotel is only 2 blocks from the beach on a quiet side street. Once you enter the courtyard with a breezy open air reception, courtyard pool and large lantern hung shade tree, you are back in old time Honolulu. This is not the... More

We loved staying here. It is in the midst of Waikiki and yet we heard little traffic noise. Yes, it is very tired but everything worked and it was great having a kitchen. The room price reflected tiredness of the rooms. If they renovated the units we would be paying a lot more per night. We travellers can't have it... More

Having just returned from our stay The Breakers I want to respond to Surfer Dude's review. We appreciate the 'old time Hawaii' feel of this wonderful hotel. Don't expect amenities or much available on site parking, but stay here if you want the feel of a laid back Honolulu, relaxed and very very friendly staff. This is why we have... More
