My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Breakers. The hotel is in a fabulous location right across the street from the beach. There is a nice long porch with chairs and small tables that looks out onto the water. We booked last minute and got a cozy king room, which was all that was left. It was on the small side but was fine for what we needed and a great low season price ($135/night). When we booked the room we were told of the potential for noise since it is above the ballroom (a complaint I read about in other reviews) but there was nothing booked past 5:30 pm on the first night we stayed so noise was not an issue. Of note, the room looks more updated than it appears on their website (they have gotten rid of the pink curtains and bed spread).
The hotel has a nice pool which we enjoyed and easy access to the beach. They provide beach passes which are needed on the weekends at this time of the year. The boardwalk on the beach has been rebuilt since damage from Hurricane Sandy and it very pretty. Note that the town of Spring Lake does not allow coolers or food on the beach when attendants are present (although you can leave your cooler on the boardwalk or the gazebo and go back and forth into it).
We had lunch on the first afternoon at the hotel. The food was basic but good and reasonably priced.
Overall we had a nice stay and I would recommend this hotel. I look forward to returning!
