“Basic But OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Located on a main route through White Rock, this was a reasonably priced overnight stay after a 13 hour drive, prior to going on to Vancouver Island. As we were to visit Richmond it was local enough for our purpose. The person at the desk for check in did not inspire confidence as he definitely was in need of a shower/shave and some clean clothes! We were directed to a room at the rear of the building on the 1st floor. It was clean, roomy enough with 2 double beds a TV & fridge. Would have been nice to have tea/coffee facility. The bathroom looks as though it may have been refurbished not too long ago and was in very good shape. As previously stated the "breakfast" was rather poor. Set out in a very narrow corridor with very limited selection. There is a nice garden area at the rear with tables/chairs which on a nice sunny, warm morning made for a relaxed place to sit and have our meagre "breakfast". We didn't have any issues with noise from next door rooms.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back overlook the "garden" and are nice and quiet.

Staff were friendly and accommodating. Rooms were small but clean. Walls are thin as we kept hearing someone cough from a neighbouring room. Breakfast: well, it is served in a narrow hallway so it is more pick-up and go. Limited choice, no fruit or yogurt. Coffee was good. Decided to go out for breakfast so we could sit down and eat.

We found the Breakaway through Trip Advisor and discovered a nice motel with clean, quiet rooms, welcoming staff in a convenient location.
There's nothing fancy here but there certainly is nothing wrong with a basic, comfortable motel, staffed by nice people, in a good location. The ABC restaurant across the parking lot serves good meals at a reasonable price so all in all I'd give the Breakaway a big "thumbs up".

We originally discovered The Breakaway through Trip Advisor and were not disappointed.
We wanted to spend several days in the White Rock area after a 7 day motorcycle trip across the country and found Willard and the staff at The Breakaway extremely friendly and helpful.
The motel rooms are quite basic but very clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable, the showers were good and there was a mini-fridge in the room.
The only complaint that could be made is that the "continental breakfast" offered as part of the price was the most basic we have ever encountered . This was off-set however by the presence of the ABC Restaurant less than 50 yards away across the parking lot.
The ABC, billed as a family-style restaurant, served excellent meals and openned for breakfast by 6:30 a.m. , and this is where we ate most of our meals, especially breakfasts.

Room Tip: The motel is set well back from King George Blvd, so the rooms at the front of the motel are almost...

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.
