Reviewed 28 August 2014

My husband and I stayed one night last year, without the kids, and really liked the resort so we brought the kids this year for three nights. I didn't even shop around, because I planned our trip last minute and didn't want the hassle.

Last year, we stayed in a single room in the main building across from the pool. It was small but sufficient for what we needed. Most importantly, it was clean.

This year, we stayed in room 130, which is a one bedroom suite (small living room with separate bedroom). We initially planned to put our twin 2.5 year old girls in the living room in pack n plays, but decided to squeeze the pack n plays into the bedroom with us so my husband and I could have some freedom to hang out when they went to sleep. It worked out well. It was a little tight, as the suite is only about 400 square feet, but sufficient for a short stay. I felt bad for anyone next to us though, because 2.5 year olds are difficult to keep quiet - especially when they wake up in the morning or have a temper tantrum - and the soundproofing is almost non-existent. We could also hear the neighbors every time a door was shut or they walked around or talked...but I guess you have to expect that when you share a "house". Anyway, the room had a private deck which was nice and was near the playscape, which was great for the kids. I misread the description thinking the deck had a jacuzzi. In fact, the room itself had a whirlpool tub, which was still cool. I would possibly choose this building again in the future, or upgrade to a larger suite. There are three parking spots assigned to this building, which was nice because we could park right next to it.

The lawns are meticulously maintained. The pool is also. There is a sun deck above, although we did not check that out. The beach is a short walk away (maybe 3 blocks?), although we drove this year because of the kids and all the stuff that comes with them. We learned from last year to bring our own chairs and umbrella so we did not have to pay to rent them. The beach has a lifeguard and an attendant. The bathrooms were clean, other than the wet sand everyone dragged in. There was plenty of parking for guests and there is a spigot to wash toys and feet off. We had the continental breakfast every morning, which included cereals, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, etc. Any of the staff we were in contact with were very friendly. That is much appreciated. Lastly, free WIFI is always a bonus.

My only complaint, and it may sound stupid, is that I had to pay $1.25 for Keurig coffee prior to the 7:30 continental breakfast start time. I am up between 4:30 and 5:30 so I can't wait until 7:30 for a cup of java! I thought the coffee should be complementary, especially if you're not going to have a coffee pot in the rooms. All said, I will stay here again in the future.

We booked this place sight unseen just as a way of getting to the beach for a few days. The location was great ( just 3/10 of a mile to their private beach with free parking and an easy walk or bike ride). The entire resort was pristinely clean with attention to every detail. It was a modest, reasonable and relaxed resort and I would not hesitate to go again. There were families with young children who seemed to be having a great time, too.

Our second summer in a row staying at Breezeway. We have two young boys and this resort is perfect for us. The rooms and grounds are immaculate, the owner John Bellone is very attentive to our needs. It has a lot of nice lawns for playing catch etc, a swingset, a great pool area, and best of all a private area at the beach with clean bathrooms, clean sand, a lifeguard and great waves (usually). The free breakfast is a nice option as well...though we highly recommend driving a few miles to try breakfast at the Cooked Goose in Watch Hill at least once during your stay.

We recommend room 128, a 1 bedroom suite with a sleeper sofa, king bed and a nice shower and bathtub. The bathtub lights up in different colors which is a big plus for the boys.

We can't say enough about the cleaning staff, Anna in particular. She is very thorough and immaculate, we've never had a hotel room cleaned so well on a daily basis.

If you like the RI beaches, the carousel at Watch Hill, Breezeway is a great place to stay. We'll be back.

All I can say is thank you. We could not run the facility we do without employees like Anna and I will definitely pass this along to her. We hope to see you and your family next summer.

PS Glad your boys like our new Airbath tubs.

Thanks for staying with us and for your review. Good or bad we do appreciate your feedback.
As you stated, our Maria's Suites location is located across the street from the beach and 3 blocks or 3/10ths of 1 mile from the main resort. It's about a 5 minute walk back to the main resort or a quick car ride away. People with disabilities or the elderly will in most cases need to drive back to the resort to have continental breakfast or to enjoy the pool. Guests parking at Maria's Suite are allowed one vehicle and yes we do charge $20 / additional vehicle during the peak season.

As a historical note. Maria's Suites is the namesake of the popular Maria's Seaside Cafe which was our restaurant located on the ground level of Maria's Suites. The Cafe was open from 1994 through 2012 when hurricane Sandy essentially closed us down. This is the reason the a portion of the ground level is boarded up and painted gray until we can renovate. Prior to the hurricane we had completely renovated the 5 existing units above. Some of the units have whirlpool tubs and yes in 2 units, the shower stalls may not be as luxurious as one would want but we had to work with space constraints. We made a business decision that guest room telephones were not necessary as most guests travel with cellular phones. Based on your comments, however, we may change this.

Future plans for Maria's Suites and Cafe: Soon after the hurricane in October of 2012 we made a decision to build a new hotel and restaurant on the property. We have been working with architects, engineers and government agencies to build a new restaurant and hotel. Between permitting and other hurdles, our vision for the property has taken longer than we would have liked, but our plans are moving forward and we hope to have a new landmark ready for you by next summer. A shuttle service from the resort to the beach and Maria's Suites and guest room phones are seriously being considered. If you are interested, I would encourage you to follow the progress of the project on our Facebook page or under the about section of our website.

Thanks again for your comments and we hope you'll give us another chance next time in Misquamicut.

Clean, immaculate, nice complimentary breakfast. Beautiful grounds, very family oriented yet enough privacy for couples. After staying around the corner several times, I'm so glad we came here this time. Anna, you're the greatest!

Our family of 4 has stayed at The Breezeway quite a few times. The villas and cottage offer plenty of room for us. The grounds are beautifully maintained and away from the hustle and bustle of Atlantic Avenue and yet near enough to the beach to walk there. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. And a special shout out to Alina who cleaned our cottage! She was very friendly and courteous. She did a great job just like the rest of the Breezeway team!

The Breezeway Resort is a great place for a vacation. They have the best service friendliest staff and complimentary breakfast yum!
