Breakers by the Sea
Ranked #20 of 41 Hotels in Hampton
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed there for 3 days 2 nights. First room smelled of alcohol, broken beds, moldy room. Management couldn't move us until the next day. Assured us that we would be reimbursed for one night. 2nd room still moldy but beds in ok shape. Dirty linens and towels. When checking out management "forgot" about issues and only offered half of a day reimbursement because we slept in the rotten room..we had no other choice! Never ever going back here and it spoiled my trip.

This place is a real dump. Non working A/C in our room, with moldy walls, mold in the fridge. clogged bathtub, no dining area as supposed, dirty carpet, smell like a real dump due to molding issue. It was hard to believe how I was ripped off and could not do anything about it. I tried to cancel with my credit card company but they could not assure me I would win my case. Don't stay there, and you should be safe. On top, my room was in the semi-basement, no balcony.......... gross, disgusting........ a big shower with lots of alcool desinfectant is needed after staying there. BE AWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was running a 5k near Hampton this past weekend with a few of my friends so we decided to stay at the beach for a few nights while we were there. We booked 2 nights at Breakers by the Sea but we were only able to stay for 1 due to the horrible conditions. We were disappointed the minute we walked into the room because it was absolutely disgusting. I'm not sure why they even bother having the kitchenette in there because the appliances are so old and dirty that nobody in their right mind would ever use them anyway. There was still a dirty towel hanging on the back of the door. There is no sink in the tiny bathroom so you have to use the one for the kitchenette. The smell of the musty carpets was awful. We could have put up with all of this, because we were not there for the hotel and didn't plan on doing anything there except sleeping and showering. But that was the biggest problem. We planned to take showers that night but realized that the shower drain was completely plugged and there was nobody in the office at that time to complain to. The next morning before our race we got up early and found a guy that worked there and asked him to take a look at it for us. He said he couldn't fix it right then but that he would be back and it would be fixed before we got back from our 5k. We got back later that afternoon, hot and sweaty from the race and wanting to shower. We went back to the room and it still wasn't fixed. When I went to the office to complain and request another room I was told that there were no other rooms available and the very incompetent man at the desk was even rude enough to suggest that we go use the outdoor showers at the beach if we needed a shower so bad. My friends and I left and were able to find another hotel down the road that was much cleaner and nicer and we immediately booked a room because we knew we couldn't spend another night in that other disgusting place. When I went back to Breakers I told the man in the office that I would like a refund because we were not staying in a hotel where we couldn't even take a shower. I was told that he wouldn't be able to give a refund and that I would have to wait to talk to the office manager who wasn't there at that time. When she finally came in she was very nice and apologetic about it (probably all fake to make me shut up) and said that she couldn't give me a refund and that she would have to talk to the owners and promised to call me. It's now 3 days later and I still haven't heard anything or been able to get an answer when I call. Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this dump!

My wife and I made a last minute decision to drive to Hampton Beach to The Breakers BTS which we were happy to get at the last minute. We arrived to find a young woman who let us into our "room". I don't know where to start! The room smelled of must, the sliding glass door to the outside porch did not hardly open, the porch was covered in webs and bird crap, there was no sink in the bathroom (only one in the "kitchenette"), not a single garbage can to be found, the beds were lumpy and the linens where musty, and the cable tv did not work. After finding the girl who let us in and showing her the issues she stated that she would tell the manager and she would come take care of it. I told her we were going to leave but be back in an hour. When we returned nothing had been done. There is no night manager or a number to call for assistance. When we were leaving the next morning there was no one in the office and only a slot to drop the key. After NUMEROUS attempts to get some sort of resolution with management, at the writing of this review, nothing has been done. I have been promised over and over that something would be done. STAY AWAY!!

We have been staying at the Breakers for the past 15+ years. We normally book one to two week stays on the top floor w/deck. Yes, they have been in transition due to a change in management but the place is constantly under renovation; all for the benefit of their guests. Since the carpets have been removed, our recently tiled floors are now more conducive to beach living. If we do not wish to dine out we can use our stove and full sized refrigerator. Our room is completely equipped with microwave, utensils, pots, pans, cups, coffeemaker, etc. We have found it to be a home away from home. If we need anything, the staff does not hesitate to accommodate us. Their rates are reasonable, especially due to their close proximity to the center of town and the beach. It has the added ammenity of nighttime peace as it is not in the center of town. We look forward to our time at Hampton Beach and our accommodations at the Breakers. We will be there again this summer and we look forward to seeing the other regulars we have been seeing there every year for years. Deb Baumann-DaSilva

Room Tip: Top floor is best.

not bad for showing up without a reservation on a holiday weekend. it was clean and very close to the beach. we would probably stay again. had a kitchenette and a slider to deck. it was a bit dated but it looks like some renovations are being done. the only bad thing i can report is our room had a double bed but we were lucky to find a room at all on labor day weekend so that was a non issue. had a great weekend.

Arrived at 5:30 pm to check in. Called early in the day to confirm they had my reservation and they said yes. They had charged my card already. No one there to check us in. We called the numbers left on the door. The answering service said they would send someone there to receive us. We had 3 young kids with us that had been in the car for 7 hours. We were there in the parking lot for over an hour. During that time i called the numbers again i only got a recording. While waiting i got an earful of information about the place from 2 other disgruntled guests who were also seeking the attention of a staff there to help with issues. It scared us to even think of staying there as they described maintenance issues that made their stays so uncomfortable....caved in beds, smells, dirty cooking surfaces, slow drains....!!!! I was ready to turn around and go home! In the end we luckily found vacancy at another place much, much, nicer in every way. It is The Main Sail Motel.
