“Wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We stayed this weekend 11/17/12 to 11/19/12 at the Breakers North Tower room 953 and had a wonderful time. The staff is courteous and accommodating. The property is clean and kept up. The rates were very reasonable. We only had an outdoor pool and hot tub on this property but a few blocks down at he original Breakers we had privileges to use the indoor pool. Parking is not an issue and right across the street. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: 953 was our room and it was an oceanfront queen with kitchen and living room two queen beds and the...

We have stayed at the Breakers for several years now. The staff is helpful. My Grandson who is 3 1/2 loved the pool area. The ship and the wading pool were great for him. We also enjoyed the lazy river. You can't beat the location. Minutes from alot of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are great. Do NOT book a room through Allegiant Air, they had our room all messed...

I chose this resort for my fall vacation (November 9-12, 2012) due to the indoor water park and location, and my husband and I had a blast. It was our first time coming to the beach during this time of the year, and we were pleased with the amenities. We stayed in the Paradise Tower, which housed all the indoor amenities ( pool, kiddie pool, lazy river hot tubs, etc.). The pools were heated, which allows swimming all year round. We also had drinks and hung out at the Red Parrot our first night. The drinks and atmosphere was wonderful. Thank you Breakers for a wonderful mini vacation. We will be back.

I just got back from The Breakers. It was awesome! Room clean, staff awesome.
The View was so nice. Get ocean front if you appreciate seeing the sun set and the beautiful ocean. Its not just a room, you have a sofa in the other room to watch tv. Try it.

Room Tip: Ask the reservationist about the hotels and rooms so you can get the one that best fits your family...

We've been coming to the Breakers after Labor Day probably 7 out of the last 10 years - no matter what building we are in, we always find clean, comfortable accommodations. The front desk is very helpful, and the different pools/amenities are great. We always get a room with stove/microwave/refrig so that we can save money by not eating out the whole time. It helps to prepare a couple of family favorite recipes ahead of time and bring to cook there. We also go to Kroger's close by on the way in and stock up on breakfast, drink and snack items.

There were Groupons advertised for another property at Myrtle Beach, but even with their discounted price, the Breakers Resort was less expensive for 3 nights!

Even though our daughters are now 18 and 13 and perhaps a little old for the Pirate Pool, they still enjoy this property. We love the Breakers! You can't go wrong with their specials, location, and proximity to the ocean.

We once again hosted a small conference at The Breakers. The event planning staff was excellent, the food and room received many compliments and the wait staff was very accommodating and exceeded our expectations. The sleeping rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view, location and amenities were great!

Room Tip: get an ocean view or side view room. it is well worth it!

I have stayed at the Breakers for the past 7 trips. Never looked anywhere else. I always knew that was the only place for us. This time, however, was different. I paid in advance 924.00 for 4 nights. Treated my kids to a 2 bedroom suite in the Paradise Towers. I even purchased breakfast for 4 for 3 mornings. I requested an early check in, it has never been a problem before and everyone bent over backwards knowing the drive for me is about 12 hours. This time we went to the desk at about 7:30am, was told ABSOLUTELY not and CHECK IN is at 3.., I asked if i can come back in an hour or so. It was a Monday morning. She said you can try but we have nothing ready. We tried to find something to kill time as we were all cranky and exhausted. Went back at 10, told the same thing. No, "LET ME SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU" nothing. I explained that i requested and early check in at least 8 months prior and have worked in a Pocono Resort for 13 years at the front I understand the procedure. I asked if she can watch for a vacancy in my room type and please ask housekeeping to do that room as soon as it is vacated for me and i asked if i can give her my cell phone number. She didnt seem too happy but wrote it down. We went to the coastal mall and didnt return until 12:30. AGAIN, I got a young girl who recognized me from waiting since early morning, went to her manager and i heard her manager on the phone as clear as a bell. She asked if room 678 was ready and the housekeeper must have said yes, the girl came out and checked me in. There was never any communication between the front office and housekeeping and it was clear to me she called at random. If she had been in commication, she would be waiting for a call from housekeeping, so that told me right there, there was no call to housekeeping prior to help me get in my room earlier even though i spent over 900.00 for 4 nights. I would have and many times did for my guests, kept in close contact with housekeeping and contacted the person and kept on top of it to make sure i did my best for the customer. OK we got in our room. We had a very nice time. Breakfast across the street was great. Great service, great housekeeping. Our relatives came down and by chance got the room next to ours which was very nice. We checked out and i forgot a pillow case, a phone charger and a pair of earrings in the room. I did not even know i left them to be honest. It so happens our relatives forgot something and had to go back, they were told by the front desk that we also forgot things in our room. My future son in laws grandparents told the front desk they live 10 minutes away from us and they would be happy to take whatever we forgot. They would not give anything to them. When they called us and told us we forgot something in the room, they said the front desk told them to have me call them, I did. Was asked to ask for a Manager who I wont mention. I did call and got a young lady who knew nothing about what i was trying to explain to her. I emailed this manager twice. I finally get a box in the mail with a cell phone charger, a pillow case and a pair of earrings. That was nice i thought. They tried to charge my Discover card for postage. After #1 our relatives offered to take with them and give to us, #2 after spending over 900.00 for 4 nights! THIS BLEW MY MIND. I love the Breakers, It is a FABULOUS place to stay. If it werent for the front desk, our trip would have been perfect. I will never believe that on a Monday morning when the parking garage across the street was EMPTY that our room was not ready until 12:30. We had to find things to keep us occupied for 5 hours! If the hotel was booked i would certainly understand. No one liked Monday mornings and couldnt be bothered to help us. What happened to the staff in previous years at the front desk? They were fabulous! Bring them back they were TRUE CUSTOMER SERVICE representatives for the Breakers Resort which ALWAYS is top notch!

Room Tip: The only reson i put poor was for the front desk, everyone i came in contact with from then on WERE...

We are very glad that you and your family had a very good vacation with us, even though there was an issue with an early check-in request for 7:30am. I am glad they were able to help by getting you in at 12:30pm. We do try to accomodate early arrival requests whenever possible. Unfortunately there are times when specific unit types may not be ready even though many other room types may be. With our check-out time being 11:00am it can be very challenging to have rooms ready real early in the morning. We do apologize for this inconveience, appreciate your business, and hope to see you again soon.
