If you want a conventional, could-be-anywhere-in-America hotel, look elsewhere. The Cliffbreakers was built on a dream of something exotic in a beautiful setting overlooking the Rock River. The decor is an over-the-top mix of baroque and nautical themes; with dark, ornate woodwork, ship models and the only life-size cast-iron wild boar fountain you'll ever see.
Unfortunately, the hotel struggles along with everything else in Rockford's economy, so it's a bit worn and out of date. The pool is a shambles, the exercise room is a joke, and the hallways are a bit shopworn. But the guest rooms are decent and clean, and the free, hot breakfast is served in a room with a beautiful view of the river (get up early to see the sunrise).
Give this hotel a chance if you value a distinctive experience over modern amenities and cookie-cutter decor.
