“Best hotel in Ocean City - by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

We stayed at the Breakers Hotel over Memorial Day weekend.

We had read all the reviews on trip advisor and were a little worried based upon some of the reviews we read about the staff, etc. We arrived early (11am - check in is at 3pm)and though our room was not ready yet, we were given a parking pass so we could enjoy our day at the beach while our room was being serviced. The front desk was very nice and helpful, nothing like some of the previous reviews had stated.

The rooms - FABULOUS! I am a neat freak and they totally passed my test. Everything is immaculate! The bathrooms were huge as was the room. We had an oceanfront suite with two queen beds and a pull out.. two tv's...

We did not have any issue's with housekeeping at all, and in fact found them to be very accomodating.

There is no room service, but they do have vending machines with snacks/soda's. Also, has a very nice indoor pool.

This is a very clean and nice hotel. Perfect for those with families that want to get away from the late night partiers. And the location - perfect! Right on top of the Dough Roller. It doesn't get any better than this!

This hotel was fantastic. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, and nicely located. The hotel staff was also very warm, from the front desk to the gentleman taking care of the pool.

A wonderful experience.

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at The Breakers Hotel with another couple in July of 2011. We had heard from a family friend that the hotel was one of the cleanest in Ocean City, and was right on the boardwalk. While the hotel was definitely pricey (almost $600 for two nights in a standard room), the boardwalk location and the cleanliness of the hotel could not be beat. However, we were disappointed to find that the staff was very rude, and treated us like we were an inconvenience to them.

When we first arrived, the woman who checked us in proceeded to explain the rules about the foot washing station, and handed me the key. She then decided to grab the key out of my hand to replace it with another one! A few minutes later, we found some previous stains (although minor) on the carpet, and went to the lobby to inform the staff that it was not our doing to avoid a charge at the end of the trip. The woman at the desk pretty much ignored us, and treated our concern as if we were foolish and incompetent. Also, later that night we had called down to request a few extra pillows (there were only four pillows in the room, one for each person). The staff at the time told us that we should have had some extra ones in the closet, which we did not. Finally, an attendant came to the door and said that she had one extra pillow- the last one in the entire hotel. We found this to be a little unbelievable, which it was. The next day, I had walked by an open linen closet to see a stack of extra clean pillows!

All in all, The Breakers is definitely a clean and convenient hotel. However, do not expect to be treated well, regardless of the high price you're paying.

My husband and I go to OC every year and stay on the boardwalk at a different hotel. This hotel was the worst. Hotel management and employees are not helpful and rude! This is not a kid-friendly place. They have no outdoor pool and the small indoor pool is FREEZING! No room service and no ammenities. There are so many other great hotels on the boardwalk that you can stay out for the same price and get so much more including friendly staff.

Although this hotel was extremely clean and the rooms were nice & roomy, which is usually what I look for in a hotel, I will never stay at this hotel again. The management team was rude and not accomidating at all. One night I had called the front desk asking for 2 extra washclothes & was asked to turn in my dirty ones. This hotel had no room services & no ammenities what so ever. Also no outdoor pool, just an extremely cold in door pool. So many hotels on the boardwalk to choose from at the same high price for so much more.

This hotel is not accommodating at all. If you are in need of extra towels, shampoo or any other amenities they supply you will be given an attitude. For example, you will either have to go to the front desk to get them AND bring your dirty ones to them (towel for a towel type of thing). We did not feel comfortable in this hotel at all...almost like staying in a strangers house. Look for another hotel on the strip..they are all the same price and MUCH better! I will never stay here again.
