This is a mid 20th century beach hotel, all rooms on ocean, minimum services and amenities but the basics are all there. Staff was a level above the facilities. Lots and lots of kids, great independent lifeguard chair/umbrella folks on the beach. Next to or close to everything. But don't expect anywhere close to three stars for the room.

We stayed there 3 nights for a Parrothead Rendezvous. The room was older but nice. True, they have no elevator, but the main entrance is on the third floor. True, the breakfast is nothing special, but you have a kitchen in your room. We enjoyed ourselves. The view was excellent! The staff was nice. The housekeepers were nice. I would...

We (my family) usually stay at 3/4 star hotels, but chose to spend the money difference on all the attractions there. This property is an older one, that needs cosmetic help. It has a great location on the beach, beautiful view of the gulf, with Gulf World right across the street. I did notice somethings that needed repair. The entry...

I traveled this weekend with my sister and our kids who were way excited to see the beach for the first time. I called the hotel before showing up and requested the best room available because I was bringing in small kids and had read some bad/good reviews. I was told our room had been upgraded to a room that...

BeachBreak is an older hotel that needs updating. I prefer nicer hotels but I can't always afford them when on vacation. So I look for hotels that are clean and in a good location while also taking into consideration other items such as continental breakfast, whether or not it has a kitchen, nice pool and grounds, and the location to...
