“Nice views and nice staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Overall I was quite impressed with this hotel and will likely stay here again. The hotel staff were friendly and the beds were comfortable. I also loved having the Lakeside view. The hotel is also conveniently located just north (but within walking distance) of the hubbub of the waterfront business distract.

The reasons I gave this venue four rather than five stars:
1. The hotel uses styrofoam everything at breakfast. This is a major detractor in my book. It makes me somewhat ill thinking of all of the chemicals consumed by hotel guests as well as the waste produced every single day.
2. Our room was not quiet. Guests above sounded like elephants up until 11:30 pm and again starting at 5:30 am.
3. The waterfront area is covered in goose poo, which detracts from its appeal for an evening stroll.

Room Tip: It is worth springing the extra money to get a room facing the water rather than the parking lot.

My family and I stayed here recently. The view is nice and the rooms are clean, however management and the owner are awful! The owner is a lawyer, author, and hotel owner, so good luck if you have any issues because he is "too busy" to deal with it. The pool area is very dangerous. While we were there, many occurrences of slips and falls happened. My son fell as well, one lady fell and hit her head and 911 had to come, another boy was hospitalized. We called the front desk to ask them to mop up the pool area but the manager refused and said that there was a sign to use caution so they did not have to do anything. I actually went and video taped the area. While I was doing so, 3 people slipped! He was extremely rude and abusive. If you read reviews on other sites, many others had the same issue. I have filed with the Chamber of Commerce, the BBB. This owner and manager are also affiliated with the Holiday Inn next door. I would not recommend either. One more thing, beware if you shower there. The temps are not regulated.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean but very basic, mini-mini fridge and no microwave. Breakfast was hot and stocked but there enough chairs or seating. The shower went from warm to cold to extremely hot. The pool deck was extremely slippery, I'm not sure how it ever passed an inspection. I saw several kids fall and a woman fall and hit the back of her head. Seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Very spotty wi-fi, it went in and out during our entire stay. I think I would try another hotel next time.

Stayed here for two nights. Found old food in the fridge, lights burnt out and missing in bathroom. Also, no extra toilet paper and no facial tissues. Kitchenette has only spoons, no other cutlery.
Next day, returned to find that housekeeping left our used coffee cups on night table, did not empty trash containers or replenish the coffee.

Overall ok, but not memorable. Crowded so-so breakfast. Good location and excellent views from rooms. Chocolate store just up the road easy walking distance was good. Overall, you could probably do better elsewhere, but if others are full, Breakers was ok.

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor probably best

We spent one night at this motel and we sure were surprised. We had no reservation and got a 2 queen room with a view of the lake and balcony. Front desk is in a separate building but had no problem with parking. Our room rate was $100 and that included a breakfast buffet for each of us. The buffets included oatmeal, scrambled eggs, muffins, bagels,toast, sausage and a waffle iron. There were 4 of us. We decided to go to breakfast early and we were very happy we did. It got very crowded in the breakfast room right off the lobby. Yes you had to leave the motel building and walk just across the parking lot. They only had one girl restocking the food and man did she work hard but with a cheery attitude! She worked so hard we all gave her a $2 tip from each of us. Wi-Fi worked. The beach behind the motel had fire pits if you wanted to have a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows. Overall, it was a very good value and the front desk staff was very helpful with all of our questions.

Room Tip: We didn't need the A/C running, we just left the balcony door open. We were a group of menopausa...

We arrived to the hotel, tired from our trip and the location of the lobby is in a odd location and hard to find. Not only that but there WAS NO PARKING AVAILABLE! We had to park far away, on some random grassy location that probably wasn't even legal. The staff didn't seem concerned about it either. We get to our room after carting our luggage from a long distance and none of the lights were working! So searching in the dark, we find that all the lights were unplugged....you would think housekeeping would notice something like that. We lay down to sleep and there were long black hairs on the bed....GROSS. So after a disappointing night, we were once again disappointed when going to the "continental breakfast" where there was absolutely NOTHING LEFT! We were there on a Wednesday, not even a weekend. No staff seemed even slightly concerned that people weren't getting fed. It was ridiculous! We paid $150 for the worst stay of our lives. I have never left a hotel so pissed. The view is nice, but that is about it. DON'T GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY! YOU WILL REGRET IT!

Room Tip: View is nice but not worth the money
