“Weekend at the Ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just returned home from a all girls weekend at the Ocean. This is our sixth year staying at the Breakers. Since the first year the staff has bent over backwards to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The location is perfect. As we are a stitching group, it's just a short walk on the boardwalk to Salty Yarns. Already planning next year. The Dough Roller downstairs is convient for breakfast.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but this year we chose the ocean front suite. It was great to lay in bed and...

We have stayed here for over 5 yrs now, the owner and staff are always lovely and concerned about our stay. Unfortunately the once beautifully decorated rooms are showing their age in dog years. We do love the fact that the front desk is so personable and they have good taste in restaurants too! Love staying on top the "dough Roller" . Hopefully they will freshen up their rooms for next season. Otherwise it is a nice hotel that is managed very well, security seems to be a priority!

My husband and I visited Ocean City Maryland and stayed at the Breakers the weekend of August 24, 2012. This was our first time visiting Ocean City and we were celebrating our first anniversary. Our room was beautiful; it was clean, renovated, had microwave and frig. The location of the Breakers Hotel was great because we were right on the boardwalk. Once you were on the boardwalk, you were in the middle of the 'boardwalk action'. The amusement park was nearby as well. My husband and I were especially happy with the location. The staff at the Breakers was excellent. Since this was our first time in Ocean City, we were not familiar with restaurants, activities, etc. The front desk staff helped us with our plans and really recommended some wonderful places; Bahama Mamas's for some crabs, Shannigan's for lunch, Fager's for dinner. On the night of our anniversary, after coming back from a great dinner/time at Fager's, the staff left us some delicious chocolate covered strawberries in our frig for our anniversary! We were touched by the thoughtfulness. Thank you Breakers for making our first anniversary great and memorable. Hope to see you next year!

We had a wonderful time in Ocena CIty Maryland. Our room was beautiful, as the hotel has been recently renovated. Complete with Microwave, refrigerator and right on the boardwalk. Help was very courteous, room was clean. Would go back again without hesitation. THe only downside was the indoor pool but you are on a beautiful beach with lots to do!

My husband and I just came back from a great vacation with my parents. We love staying at Breakers. We had an ocean front room ( suite) and the view is amazing! We have stayed here several times. We go to Ocean City every year and try to book this hotel every year because it is clean, the rooms have so much space and the location is perfect! The beds were very comfortable, nice sitting area, and they have a microwave and mini fridge and a sink. The bathroom is ok, nothing spectacular but nice enough. Would have been nice to have a full length mirror like a lot of hotels.You don't feel crowed at all in this suite. Although we have never stayed in a room other than the ocean front, I would imagine that all rooms would be nice here. It is located right above the dough roller resturant which is perfect when you get hungry late at night! YUM!!! Its not far from the amusment park and short walk to great resturants on the boardwalk. The staff was friendly at the desk . (which has not always been the case) But the last couple of years they have been great! They have strict rules here but that is what keeps it very nice and safe as well. ( such as for an example, you need a room key to get up to the floors) We enjoy it here and can't wait to go back again next year! They are pricy but again, we feel it is worth paying more because it is so nice and also clean. Some hotels on the boardwalk are not like that. You don't have to get ocean front room to save money. They have standard rooms which have a window ( it doesn't open though) that faces the side and looks at another building with no ocean view if you wanted. Over all, we would be sure to recommend this lovely hotel. If you do however want an ocean front room, they only have 9 rooms so you should book early. Go visit ocean city, so much to do!!!!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are just a bit nicer I would say ( they have a side window and slightly more space) tha...

After staying at this hotel several times in the past I think it's starting to show wear and tear. We stayed in a oceanfront room (as in the past) although this time it was on the third floor. Sitting on our balcony you saw the top of the canopy for the Dough Roller restaurant which was disgusting and dirty. Definately should be cleaned for guests staying on this floor. Carpet had several noticable tears and worn spots. Hole in bathroom wall. Vanity mirror didn't light. Our card for entry in the room stopped working twice during our three day stay and we had to go to the desk for them to reactivate. Also second day of our stay the maid service skipped our room and when we came back at 530pm we had to call down and asked for it to be cleaned. No explanation given on why it was skipped. I think for the price of these rooms ($369 per day) updates need to start happening soon. Don't think I would stay here again. Location is great but the price just isn't worth it any longer....

Room Tip: if you are staying Ocean Front request floors 4 or 5 so that you can avoid the dirty dough roller ca...

I will never at any other hotel in ocean city again!! The Breakers Hotel has extremely clean, spacious rooms, friendly staff, and an awesome location. It is smoke free, secure, and quiet. The staff is extremely pleasant. The day manager (love her but didn't get her name unfortunately), worked long hours and was always accommodating. A boiler broke which left us without hot water for a day (things happen), but she was there into the evening trying to solve the problem and felt terrible. Some complaints that i read were about the doors being locked at midnight. The entrance to the hotel is on a lower level that takes you immediately to elevators. The main desk is on the second floor. I totally understand why the doors are locked at midnight, and truly appreciate that. Anybody could enter without passing a desk. The upper floors require ur room key to operate since they dont pass the desk. Great idea! Ocean view is ok, the balconies are narrow so that chairs cannot face forward but rather face each other. Regardless, was covered and cozy and didn't share an opened iron wall with neighbors like so many hotels. The pool is indoors so that may be a negative for those who don't like sand and want to lounge at the pool. Not for me though. I felt like I could walk on the carpet and sit and use the bedspread (which was white) without any fear of bugs or germs. Not to mention the space! There were two closets, a dresser, end tables, a fully enclosed bathroom sink with drawers and shelves, a large dinette table and chairs, and room to walk around everything, even when the pull out sofa bed was in use! Parking (just an ally way over), is spacious and never completely full so you felt like you could actually drive somewhere and not have to fight for spot. I could see my car from my balcony. I have stayed at many hotels along the length of the boardwalk, including the highest rated and most expensive, and none compare to this hotel. I will never stay anyplace else again. Thank you for a great stay. Will definitely be back next year, last week of july, please reserve for me!
