After seeing the photos and reviews of the BREAKERS INN, I chose it for our one night stay on our car trip. Unfortunately, we got severely detoured and arrived VERY late and VERY stressed at 8:30 pm. We were greeted very warmly at the front desk and made to feel 'at home'. We only booked their partial ocean view room for this trip, but it was perfectly fine. I did view/photograph their luxury room before leaving the next morning (see photos).
The rooms are very quaint and comfortable, each with their own decor. Ours was the 'Napa' room and one of the three partial ocean view. Even so, we had our own private deck that had an ocean view, as well as an ocean view from part of our room. Some of the jacuzzi rooms have tubs that are oceanfront in the room, some are in the bathroom, and two have a sauna in the bathroom.
Our bathroom was basic and very clean. The room was average sized, but the luxury oceanfront rooms are very large. We had a high four-poster king bed, real fireplace, two chairs and a table, a coffee maker, and wet bar.
The lobby is very cute. There is always coffee, fruit and cookies available. In the morning, they do an excellent job with their free continental breakfast and provide trays for you to take your breakfast to your room.
The town looks very cute -- though we didn't have time to explore it. We're looking forward to that on our return trip. There is also a market, which I believe has a deli, right next door to the Inn, as well as a few other resturants within walking distance.
Onsite with the BREAKERS INN is the Oceansong restaurant. It shares the same stunning view that the room at the Inn have. Everyone in the restaurant is very friendly and helpful. They couldn't have been nicer to us. We were trying to get take out food at 8:40 before everything closed. We only wanted sandwiches and they let us order from the bar menu. We had two sandwiches to go and ate in our room -- with wine and the fireplace. The sandwiches were EXCELLENT. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
The BREAKERS INN has a stunning location that would be hard to beat.
It's one of the nicest places overall that we have stayed, and a huge value compared to some other properties. Don't forget to ask for your AAA discount!
It was a great stay and we will definitely return.
