“comfortable and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Found this little gem after a friend in White Rock recommended them. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There's no a/c but nice big windows to open. The rooms overlooking the garden have the best view otherwise its parking lot and restaurant. Staff were helpful and friendly. Nice quiet place at a decent price.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the garden; quieter and a nicer view

This motel is a decent overnight choice. The rooms are very clean, however there is no coffee pot or hair dryer in the rooms. There is a dryer available at the front desk and coffee and breakfast foods in the office area. The walls are thin and I had to change rooms because of a loud snorer in the room next to me. It is dog friendly and there is a lovely garden / yard in the back -a perfect place for your dog. Although it is on a busy street, it is not very noisy though I had a room at the back and it may be noisier at the front.

This hotel is an affordable option in White Rock, fairly quiet at night with clean rooms. Hotel is easily accessible from the main highway and conveniently next to a chevron and ABC restaurant. Hotel is approx. 45 min to an hour drive away from Vancouver. Complimentary breakfast had some bagels, english muffins, toast, instant oatmeal and some cereal boxes. Overall a decent hotel for the price and the area.

Room Tip: Second floor, facing the back is better because you won't get headlights shining in your room fr...

The front desk staff was very nice. Our room faced a pretty little court yard in the back. Everything was clean and smoke free. The rooms have adjoining doors and we could hear the dog in the next room snoring! Construction going on in the area, so we could hear beeping in the morning. A little breakfast of bagels, toast, cereal, fruit and coffee. We were very happy with our stay. The lady at the front desk made us feel at home. Did lots of driving around the coast and used this as home base. We stayed for a few days before our cruise.

Staff very, very friendly and helpful however, walls are "paper-thin"!! You could hear the guy in one room cough, and the guy in the other room snore!! They do allow dogs (pets), however, many guests do not clean up after their pet, and my wife wound up with a reminder of this fact on her shoe after we walked our dog!! I would rate the room as average, and a pretty good deal as far as price goes.

We stayed at the Breakaway so we could attend a family reunion in WhiteRock. The prime decision to stay there was because most of our extended family were also there. And the reservations were made by our cousin. We called the night before to confirm our reservations and all was good. When we arrived at the hotel all was good for the check in and we were given the keys to our room. Yes, real keys. I haven't had a room where you didn't have to swipe a card in ages. The room was antiseptically clean and minimalist in design. It has all the amenities for a comfortable short stay. I enjoyed the free wireless that worked well enough with my iPhone but for some reason not with my notebook. There is a very good tub and shower. The tiny flat screen tv was fine and got all the necessary channels. The fridge worked well and all was pretty good.
I found that the room was a bit noisy when I was near the door to make the rooms adjoining. And we did hear the little dog next door for a while but that stopped soon and demonstrated that they did allow pets. The front desk staff was very friendly and efficient.
Across the parking lot is an ABC restaurant which like the Breakaway is a pretty good restaurant. We had a nice family breakfast there. I would recommend the Breakaway for stopovers when you need a clean comfortable rest, a place that is great for a short stay home base for visiting White Rock or for a family function like we had.

Room Tip: Choose an end unit if possible.

My nephew was getting married in White Rock, and we had to organize a group of rooms for family from the Okangan, Kamloops, Oregon, Coquitlam and Vancouver. The rooms were comfortable, and all the staff that I dealt with were friendly, courteous and helpful. They allowed us (8 rooms full of family!) take over their beautiful garden so we could play uitar, sing and catch up with each other. We were a bit noisy (apologize to any other guests!), but the staff understood our need to re-connect with each other. We stayed for 2 nights and a great time was had by all. The meals at the ABC restaurant were good for the price. Will recommend this motel to any friends and family that need an economical place to stay!
