“Perfect for us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This hotel is just a two - three minute walk from everything in Lauderdale by the Sea. It is clean, has a nice pool, and the owner lives on site and takes a lot of pride in the service and quality of the grounds and rooms. Room had queen bed, kitchen area and nice bathroom. Outside deck was relaxing and very quiet. Room a/c was ice cold.

Private location and peaceful grounds. We would recommend this place highly and will stay there again on every visit to Ft. Lauderdale. The town of Lauderdale by the Sea is a great place to vacation. The beaches are beautiful, the restaurants are plentiful with good food, and the night life is really great too. Live music everywhere, especially on weekends.

Room pricing is very competitive compared to other hotels, no need to spend more $ unless you need to be right on the beach. This hotel is a very short walk to ocean, maybe 200 yards.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms is our preference here. There is a huge deck (shared) that is a great place to r...

The Breakaway Inn is a cozy, peaceful , paradis in Lauderdale by The Sea. We stayed for 9 days in June 2012. From the minute we arrived we were greeted by the the most hospitable hosts, The Winiarczyk's. They go out of the there way to make sure you are comfortable, have everything you need on a daily basis. Our room was immaculate. New appliances, & fully equipt. The decor is bright & cheery. The grounds are peaceful & lush like a tropical paradis. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony at night relaxing, overlooking the twinkle lit palm trees. Frosty ( the owners cat) even made friends with us... "sweet litttle white kitty ",who greeted us in the morning as we left for the beach. The Breakaway is in a prime spot. The market, shops, restaurants & beach all within walking distance which was a great convienience during our trip. It felt like home away from home & we were sad to leave, but we have found our new favorite spot to return to next year & without hesitation would recommend anyone visiting Ft. Lauderdale to book their stay at the Breakaway Inn!

Room Tip: Second floor, balcony overlooking grounds is a great choice. Private & Peaceful.

This hotel is a very nice and clean place. The owners are very helpful and not intrusive at all. The apartments and the outside area are very cosy and the pool is also very clean. A supermarket, other stores, restaurants and a fishing pier/ocean are also close to reach.
We really enjoyed our vacation and for our 6 year old daughter it was a great vacation. We do plan to spend our next vacation there again.

This hotel makes it easy to do everything. The beach, the supermarket, and restaurants are all just a short walk. No rental car needed. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. The grounds are so relaxing and delightfully landscaped. Several gas grilles invite the visitor to cook up a favorite meal. The staff knows real hospitality and real customer service. I live within 50 miles of this hotel and will continue to make the Breakaway Inn my hotel of choice for fun weekends at the beach. Paradise has been found!

My family: My Husband, Kids 2 and 4 and myself stayed at the Breakaway Inn for over a week. It was the BEST vacation that we have ever had. As a matter of fact, we have booked our next one here as well. It is the perfect location. We take along a jogging stroller and are able to walk to everything that we need or like to go to!!! It is wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here. Margaret was so helpful and always greeted you with a smile whenever you saw her. The kids loved the pool. The room was kept clean and very welcoming. The kitchen was fully supplied with everything that we could possibly need. They had pans, dishes, etc. They had sand toys for the kids and provided beach towels. It was perfect! We love the little town of Lauderdale By The Sea. Perfect vacation get away! We are looking forward to our return.

Ma wifw and I stayed at the Breakaway Inn several times. We allways loved our stays there. Rooms were clean, the outside area is a nice area to relax and play cards. The owner were so helpfull when my wife got contact with a jellyfish in the ocean. The motel is situated one block away from A1A, so it's quite at night. Just walk 5 Minutes to the beach and to restaurants and shops. Safe area even at night. Would defenetly stay there again.

The room was very clean & fresh, and had everything we needed. Margaret was nice. Location was a couple of blocks from the beach, but an easy walk. We even walked a few blocks over to and they had live karoake in the street, like a block party on Saturday nite. Couln't get a better deal for the money.
