“Great location, nice room and amenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We stayed a week here.. and wanted to stay longer. We used the BBQ's, the laundry and the kitchen ( nice stove and full size fridge). Walked to the Pulix ( 10 min) and stocked up on goodies. We walked to the beach ( 5 min ). Also, very quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I booked a few nights for a business trip not realizing that this is in the middle of a tourist area. Since I was arriving very late one night and leaving at 3:30 am the third night I really had only one normal night here. The owners were very accommodating - leaving a room unlocked for me the first night and asking that I sign in when I had the opportunity. It is a mom and pop operation and the attention shows. The room was very nice, and the business itself is clean and well cared for.

The location is a few minutes walk from the tourist restaurants and the fishing pier but it is tucked away in an area that seems to block out all the noise. So sleeping is easy. The only issue had was with the internet. Since I had a connection through my cell provider it was not a serious issue with me but I could only connect sporadically to the hotel network and when I could there was no internet connection available.

Other than that I would rate it a 4 star overall and a 5 star for value.

Room Tip: The second floor seems more private and possibly quieter.

Stayed here for one night as there was no availability after that. Couldn't fault it as the owners were lovely and very helpful. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, what more can you ask. Even though we only stayed one night met lots of other people staying there and they were mainly staying for a longer period to escape the weather in the Northern United States. Very handy for everything, supermarket, shops, beach etc.

This is definitely a little gem in Lauderdale by the Sea.
Owners are a polish family, very caring and making sure everyone feels at home.
Room (28) was clean, nice bed and bedding, small bathroom but good shower and lots (lots) of towels (even small face towels in a dark color for ladies to remove their make up). The kitchen area is quite good, with big fridge and everything you may need to cook like at your own home.
The town is lovely and from the hotel is a 5 minutes (if much) walk to the awesome beach. You dont need to bring beach towels here as the owner has a big collection for the guests.
I ended up going one night to the Town Hall where they were showing DIrty Dancing, felt really like in one of those little places where a lot is arranged and done for the town people and that made me love it even more!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor are quieter.

Clean Rooms, Family run, resonable price and great deal for the area. Easy walk to the beach and restaurants and shops. We have been coming here for 9 years and have never been disappointed. The pool and grounds are immaculate. These owners take great care of the property as well as their guests.

There were 13 people in our party for a shore diving weekend. The hotel, we'd typically stay at didn't have enough rooms since it was Memorial Day weekend. Thank goodness because we found this little gem instead. We prefer independantly owned, smaller places with character but booking them can be hit or miss. Booking at the Breakaway Inn was a home run! This Inn is owned by people who take pride in their property and make the absolute most out of it. It was spotlessly clean and well cared for. The grounds are adorable and perfect for our group as there were a number of inviting areas outside for us to gather. We were up early to dive so the "Quiet Time outside After 11:00" rule worked perfectly for us. Margaret took our reservations and checked us in and couldn't have been any nicer or more helpful. The location is within two blocks of the beach and one block from a variety of restaurants and shops. Some of our group had the One Bedroom apartments and we had the efficiency. Both had FULLY stocked kitchens. For the price, you can look long and far and not come anywhere close to anything as nice as this property. I know because I've tried. Out of 13 people in our group, every person loved it. How often does that happen?

Breakaway Inn, you are our choice for all our future stays in the Ft. Lauderdale area.
