My family, a total of six of us altogether, have stayed at the Breakers six times from 2001-2011 and have always enjoyed staying there. Yes, all rooms are oceanfront, but be sure to ask for a room that does NOT overlook the pool. Rooms over the pool are set back farther, and the view is not panoramic (no view to the south). Its also quieter if you aren't overlooking the pool.
My research has shown that this is the cheapest oceanfront hotel on the Va Beach strip. To find something cheaper you'd be across the street. In our experience, during the summer peak season,, the rooms have always been clean and well-kept, and the staff freindly. Yes, the elevator can be slow at "rush-hour" times (mostly midday and evening), and yes the parking lots are small and cramped, and yes the lobby and restaurant are small, as others have pointed-out, but how much time do you spend in those locations anyway? Just be careful in the parking lots - we've never had a problem.
We normally eat breakfast in the lobby restaurant at least once during our stay, and have found the food to be good and reasonably priced.
Our summer vacations have always been pleasant here, and I highly reccommend the Breakers if you can be happy without all of the "frills" of the more expensive beachfront hotels. We have never had any experience here that resembles those described in the less favorable reviews.
