The Breakaway Inn was a wonderful refuge, particularly during these times. The management keeps their establishment SUPER clean and have been taking the worries of their traveling guests seriously during this worrying episode of American life. The room was spotless, convenient, and appointed with all of the necessities for a traveler looking to hide away while still getting some sun and sea. It is a perfectly maintained classic style Florida beach bungalow. It is conveniently located near scuba shops and beautiful shore diving for your underwater adventures. My wife and I felt very safe and comfortable and are so very thankful to have had the good fortune to find such a wonderful little place. We felt welcome and highly recommend the Breakaway Inn.

Our second time here, first time with our kids.. they loved it, since it’s more like a home vs a hotel. Owners and staff were welcoming and helpful.. Kids can’t wait to come back in 2020! They also had fun in the town center dancing eating a variety of foods and sweats..

This hotel feels like home away from home! So friendly and well kept by the amazing owner Margaret who makes sure you are always happy and answers any questions you have and her husband Andrew. They live on site so you know they care for the place and atmosphere. The studio itself wasn’t very big but you had all the essentials to cook and also sleep well. The proximity to the village’s center of activities is a big plus! I am a woman who travels alone and never felt unsafe in the establishment or the neighborhood. It’s away from the A1A on a little side street so very calm and quiet. The grounds are well kept and it has a nice heated pool and beach towels/chairs for your use! I want to go back next year!

While looking for a weekend get-away, many years ago, someone at the office suggested this beautiful, homey, very affordable place on Lauderdale by the Sea. She’d stayed there and loved it. I took on her advice and sure enough the Breakaway Inn fulfilled my expectations completely. I have come back several times since then. Indeed, I’ve seen the growth that area has experienced in all these years. Me and my partner love to get the efficiency because, even though you’re away from home, you feel home at the Breakaway Inn, a home that’s a short walk away to the beach. In fact, you can park your car and never have to move it because you have a grocery store, restaurants, drugstore and stores galore within walking distance. The efficiency itself has all the kitchen utensils and amenities to make you feel comfortable and at home.
