Booked on Hotels.com. The location was great & we were super excited to be right on the beach. The views from the balcony were amazing. Watching dolphins in the mornings was awesome when you could actually wake early enough to see them. The problem was that spring break started somewhere. & apparently that means that even though the pool closes...

Booked this hotel using my Hotels.com rewards. It was located right on the beach with easy access and beautiful sunset views. The room was clean which is always my first concern. The property is old and it shows. There are restaurants within walking distance and the front desk staff is very helpful. If looking for a convenient location without the...

This was a great hotel for the price. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful, taking the time to help us find the best room for us. Room was clean and had no smoke smell. Pool was nice and warm. My only complaint would be a lack of shady places to sit outside (but for many people this probably would...

We have stayed at Beachbreak just about every month from April to September for the past two summers. It has an awesome location. Great price. The grounds cleaning crew are very diligent and always out at 7 am. Steps from the beach and the pool is cleaned every day. However balconies are very hard to enjoy the old heating systems...

When I booked the hotel, I requested the floor with the least stairs as I was supposed to be recovering from a major surgery and would be unable to climb stairs and get my luggage in.
