“Value, or Luxury,or Location”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

We have stayed here on several trips so I think I can speak with some degree of expertise on this property. We have been happy here, but as the title suggests it really depends upon your own personal preference. What is important to us is location to the beach, and dining establishments and cleanliness. No it is NOT a luxury hotel, but neither are the prices. The rooms are clean, the sheets are clean and so is the bathroom. Maybe the towels could be a bit fluffier but guess what, we dried off. We had a problem with a fridge and it was swapped out within a 1/2 hour. The beer didn't even have a chance to get warm that is how fast they were to correct it. The pool is not huge but all I want to do is jump in cool down and get out, certainly large enough for that. The breakfast was more than adequate in my opinion, no it was not a 5 star meal but again neither is the rate. We will be returning before the end of the year and also next summer.

Room Tip: Love the bedroom/living room combo. 2 TV's

My family and I stayed here recently and we were not impressed. Our trip was after Hurricane Irene and when I called up to make sure the hotel was ok, the girl at the front desk was very rude and just hung up the phone. When we showed to check in, the front desk girl was just as rude. She answered our questions nastily and was not pleasant.

Our room was down a creepy, dirty hallway that was not lit very well. It seems like all the rooms are positioned like that. I don't believe you want to be walking around there alone at night. The balcony view was of a road. There is no lake in sight like their website claims. And the pool does not look like it is chlorinated. The pool room is hot and smelly and the water is cloudy.

Our room was not cleaned when we got there. The carpet wasn't vacuumed (I found noodles by the bed!) and there was a dirty sheet in the living room. It looked like someone just made the beds and ran out. The drain in the bathroom didn't work so we were not able to take showers. When I told the same girl at the front desk, she acted as if we broke it. I told her it didn't really drain the day before either and she said she would have the maintenance man look at it. We didn’t even get an apology.

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone. I saw a lot of nicer hotels in the area that are priced the same or less.

We stayed here with another family. They did arrange for us to have 1BR suites next to each other, which was nice. The room was clean but outdated. The free buffet in the morning was very bare. Walking distance to the beach. Pool on the top floor is small but adequate, but no room to swim if there are more than 4 people in the pool! Definitely not worth what we payed for the room.

Family of four stayed in a 2 room suite. We've been going to Rehoboth for more than twenty years, usually staying in another hotel. Choose Breakers due to short notice and availability. The room was clean, relatively close to the beach as well as restaurants and shopping. The hotel is inexpensive for a reason, the pool is small, they don't replace the coffee or soap unless you ask; but when you do it is provided quickly. The staff was efficient and polite. If you need pampering or a lot of amenities this is not the place for you. If you don't spend a lot of time in the room, don't mind 2 blocks to the beach and like to be close to stuff Breakers is a good place to stay. Please note that the beds are fine, but the pillows are not supportive, so you may want to bring your own.

For the price it is a major disappointment. Rooms are small especially the bathroom, smell, carpets are dirty and outside is not attractive considering your room overlooks the beautiful municipal parking lot. Don't be fooled by the website pictures.

Pool is on the roof and is enclosed with glass. The person who checked us in said you may not want to go to the pool during the summer because the room is like a sauna.

I recently stayed here on a girls weekend and was excited to go someplace new. Rehoboth beach and the surrounding areas was adorable and would reccomending coming again. However the hotel was not worth the $180.00 a night. The room was very damp, dead bugs on the wall, had to request iron & hair dryer from front office, wifii was only available in lobby, and to use the fitness center it was a $4.00 charge. To add to it there was crumbs of chips behind the bed. So not worth it.

From the outside, The Breakers looks like your typical beach motel: with rooms lined up along dingy concrete outdoor corridors that face onto the parking lot. So we weren't prepared for how pleasant, comfortable, and well-appointed the rooms were. We stayed in a suite, which gave us a sitting room with its own sofa, table, chairs, and tv, plus separate bedroom (with doors that closed) with a king bed, dresser, night stands, desk and chair, and a second tv. Each room had its own closet with plenty of space to hang clothes. There was also a fridge, a microwave, a coffee-maker, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. The rooms were clean and the furniture was sturdy and attractive. Even the bedding was nice: the mattress was firm, the sheets were soft, and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. The bathroom, which was immaculate, had granite counters and quarry tile on the floor. The room was private and quiet and had excellent climate control, all of which paved the way for two good nights' sleep.

The desk clerks were efficient and accommodating. Although check-in was at 4:00, our room had already been cleaned so we were welcome to use it right away. Check-in and check-out were quick. For $3.00 a day we could park our car in the lot. (Parking in Rehoboth is a challenge.) My daughter's friend was staying somewhere else but was allowed to use the WiFi connection (available in the lobby but not in the rooms) for most of the afternoon. The lobby was well-lit and had comfortable furniture, including a computer desk.

The Breakers is two long blocks from the beach, and we could have taken a pedal-powered jitney, but we walked. When we got to the beach, we had free use of an umbrella that we picked up at the Sands, the Breakers' oceanfront sister hotel. (We also could have taken beach chairs but didn't need them.)

The cost of the room included breakfast. On Friday morning we were offered "extended" continental breakfast, which included mini-donuts, toast, bagels, dry cereal (Cheerios or Frosted Flakes), and yogurt. I would have liked to have some fresh fruit and perhaps more cereal options. On Saturday, there was "hot breakfast," which did include fresh fruit, as well as scrambled eggs, sausage, and pancakes. The eggs and pancakes were not really hot, and the room was noisy, thanks in part to music from a soft rock radio station (which people then tried to talk over). The breakfast was the only part of our stay that was less than first rate.

The Breakers is comfortable and well-located and I certainly would stay again.
