“well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

very reasonable..clean, super staff, overlooking the sound, and walking distance to the pier, some restaurants, and a corner grocery. Not super expensive, so fits many budgets, without upleasant surprises. Our "go to" place for getting away..
AND it has its' own small pier on the waterway, so if the fishing is poor on the ocean pier, you can just drop a line at the motel!

Room Tip: try to get a room on the left when facing the hotel..best sunsets visible from there, and they are s...

We have stayed at Breezeway for our vacation several years. The pool is nice for those who don't want to get messy with sand. We have never had a problem with loud people or dogs. Sometimes we even see the same families from the year before. Taking a walk around the tip of the island is very interesting too. We always have to play at least one game of putt-putt. This is a great family beach and Breezeway is great too!

I have been staying here for over 35 years. It is still the same quiet peaceful place now that I also enjoyed as a child. It is pet friendly and just simply a nice relaxing place to stay. It was also nice to walk the town and feel safe while doing it. The food is the same as always but again nice and affordable.

This hotel was on the bay and only a short walking distance to the beach. It had excellent facilities and a very nice picnic area in the back. We had 3 families visit the beach after our girls played in a national softball tournament in Raleigh. We used the picnic tables and grilss every night and it was awesome. Despite the owner not having someone to help him clean the rooms, he did it himself and was able to keep up with everything we needed. The pool was great, and the rooms were very well kept - exactly what we needed. I've read the other reviews, and maybe those folks should find a chain hotel and really pay an outrageous price - you are going to the beach so good luck finding a room for $30. I used to go to Topsail about 20 years ago, and the Breezeway was there then - sure it is older, but are you going to the beach to have fun in the sun and relax or are you going to put on a show?????? I would stay here again and have already recommended it to many folks.

Room Tip: we stayed on the pool side top floor - honestly there was not a location that seemed any better than...

The quality of the rooms are about what you might expect for a place to do a little fall fishing -- not fancy, functional TV, shower, AC/Heater, clean towels, etc. You get that, but it allows dogs and not smokers. Guess the insurance is cheaper to cover flea bites than smoker fires, although the motel has withstood the terrors of smokers for 60+ years. BTW, I am a non-smoker, but I have received flea bites in much fancier chain motels that allowed dogs. Another issue I have is the rooms are way overpriced -- check out their website for the latest prices. Also, they consider a mini-refrigerator, mini-microwave (the turn table didn't turn in the one in my room and ruined a bag of microwave popcorn), and a coffee pot as an efficiency room. The main reason I gave it 3 instead of 2 stars is that it has a very convenient sound-side short fishing pier that is included in the cost of the stay. But even this benefit is marginal since the ocean fishing piers costs about $12 per day to fish.

Room Tip: Bottom floor rooms are much more convenient - no elevator. However, all bottom floor rooms have a m...

The restaurant is fine- good food- fair pricing--the hotel- outrageously overpriced- if you get the best deal it will cost you $100 bucks for a $30 dollar room. Bedspread was thin as toilet paper!- sheets WERE CLEAN-- faucets in tub were on backwards!--old used TV was blurry--ac noisy-- this palce is very out dated -- maybe from the 50's- DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back overlook inland waterway-- but you can watch beautiful sunsets free and eat at the...

First, this is a review of the restaurant - have not stayed at the motel. We've been going to Surf City & Topsail Island for years and going to The Breezeway for dinner is a ritual for us, so I might be a bit biased, but here's the scoop ...

1. The views are outstanding! I always bring my camera and go out to the dock out back to take sunset photos.
2. The staff is incredibly friendly. We have always had the nicest waitresses!
3. The wine is reasonably priced.
4. The food is consistently good. The hushpuppies are awesome.

Tonight we had grilled scallops and one of the fried seafood platters (flounder, oysters, shrimp). I used to love their crab cakes that were made with captains wafers as the breading, but the waitress said they've changed that recipe ... maybe they'll bring it back??

Anyway, this place is a sentimental favorite and is your typical beach seafood place. Love the staff, we will be back!
