Recently stayed here. We booked because it had internet connection but this was very poor. Maid service was alternate days only. Owner/manager very pleasant Our room was quite small and bathroom was even smaller. Plastic shower curtain very old fashioned and shower not adjustable but on the whole would recommend. Easy walking to the beach and restaurants.

I have spent weeks here in the last 2 years and loved it! This October, I took my husband and another couple there for a night before heading to the keys. They fell in love too. It is clean, safe and so convenient. Close to the grocery store, and other necessities when traveling. All the shopping and eateries are within... More

It is our first time staying at this motel and I was impressed with the charm and camaraderie that forms with several of the repeat guests and the owners. Evening parties and gatherings and dinners were some of the events that occurred during our stay. The location is close to the beach, restaurants, gas station, grocery stores or just about... More

We had a wonderful time here. It is very close to the beach, restaurants and stores. It was nice walking around Lauderdale by the Sea. Very safe with friendly people.

Very nice appartments placed in a lovely green garden with clean swimming pool, terrace and barbecue staff. Cozy and quiet neighborhood, tennis area, children´s area, supermarket nearby, just a minute from the sea. Don´t count on always working wifi while there.

Very nice stay. Owner is very helpful, the location is fantastic - near supermarket, drugstore, restaurants at the Commercial Boulevard and 5 minutes away on foot from the beach. Our studio was cute, shower strong, warm and perfect. Kitchen well equipped, everything worked fine. We had some weak wifi here and there but nothing serious. Will return when I can.... More

Great little area, clean pool, clean room, and close to the beach. Parking was adequate and we loved walking down to the beach which was about 5 minutes away. Would defiantly go back as Margaret was an amazing host and always helpful when needed.

This is like stepping back to the 50's and 60's, but totally a very nice , warm place to stay. Great pool and MGR is most helpful. Full kitchen. I'd come back again and stay for a week or so. A few blocks to beach but very near food and restaurants. Interesting place to stay.

My third motel experience in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and the first one where I had to walk two blocks to get to the beach. But it really didn't matter: Breakaway Inn is a quiet place – no traffic, no noisy guests (at least when I was there). Rather an extremely well kept motel with the owners living on the property, which is... More
