Location of this hotel gets one star. Have very basic room gets the other star. That's about IT. This hotel is not cheap, but boy when you folk out that kind of money you also have higher expectation. And the Breaker's had come far far below expectation. Check-in: It was a quick process since we checked in very late. The person behind the counter did his thing but he mumbled the whole time, had to ask him to speak louder a couple of times and still had to struggle to hear what he had to say. There was also some vomit looking substance on his uniform shirt. Very disgusting and unprofessional for a hotel front desk staff. Room: (Fasten your seat belt). The rooms were tidy but very very dirty. Lots of sand on bathroom floor, sand on the chairs. TV covered with dust, just run your finger crosse it and ewwww. We had 2 rooms, with half a roll of sanding paper like one-ply toilet paper in each room. Together we were given 1 roll for 4 people for a 3 nights stay. Each bathroom had 1 small bottle of shampoo and conditioner, 1 square inch of soap that dissolved almost completely after 1 shower. The other room had a slightly bigger and different brand soap. I wonder if they got their supplies from dollar tree, while quantity last. I can also tell the bathroom floor was not mopped before we arrived. I spilled some water on the bathroom floor, I threw some precious sanding toilet paper to soak up the water. They came out BLACK. It's extremely disgusting. There's no housekeeping for our entire stay, it's probably fine as I really don't think housekeeping does anything proper. On check-out day at 8-ish am, 3 knocks on the door.... it was housekeeping!! Still half asleep I called down to the front desk and tried to understand why we didn't have housekeeping until check-out day. The answer was, housekeeping only given every 3 days. Makes me wonder, if I let them do housekeeping that morning, and then checked out at 11am, would housekeeping come back to clean for the next guest? Well the sandy and dirty bathroom floor that welcome our arrival 3 days earlier probably answered that question. BTW, the hotel phone was very dirty too, handset was sticky. Food: Good and Bad. Japanese place - it's fine. Perkins - also fine, and the waitress was well trained and on the ball. Starkbucks - NOT GOOD. down an espresso machine, took forever to get coffee. TGIF - NOT GOOD. foods are average, but the wait staff were not very well trained. Simple things like clearing dirty plates from table took forever, our wait staff walked past us numerous times but didn't seem to clue in that she should take away the plates. We finally did it ourselves and put the dirty plates away to make room for main course. Washroom in hotel lobby: Not clean. This washroom right across from the gift shop probably gets a lot of use. As soon as I walked in, I saw 5-6 used toilet paper rolls with maybe a sheet left each, all lined up on the grab bar of the stall. There is not ONE toilet paper roll that has reasonable amount of sheet left. Also, pieces of toilet paper scattered on the floor. How on earth their cleaning staff manage to let this happen without restocking supplies and cleaning the floor is beyond me? (I wish I have a picture to show the shocking scene I walked into) This is the 2nd time we stay at the Breakers, would I come back? definitely not unless the hotel has some very drastic improvement, but boy that is quite a long list - where do you even begin?

Hotel's Favourite
Spent 3 nights at Hotel Breakers with grandparents, children and grandchildren. We absolutely loved the hotel experience. There was a good variety of restaurants to choose from on the premises. There were 3 outdoor pools, including a kiddie pool, and 1 indoor pool. The amusement park was just steps away.

I stayed at the hotel with my two kiddos (age 9 an 10) and we had a blast!! We did not go to Cedar Point or the waterpark and still had a great time!! We spent three days at the beach, pool, hot tub, and splash pad and it was relaxing and peaceful. We also took the Jet Express to Putt-in-Bay for a day. I love the convenience of getting on the Jet Express at the Cedar Point marina and the shuttle from the hotel to the marina. I never had to move my car from the time we got there to the day we left, everything you need is at the hotel!! I only have two complaints.... one, of course, is the cost of the rooms and restaurants in the hotel $$$$$$$. I would have loved to stay a couple of more nights, but at that price point it would have been least expensive to actually go to the ocean. The second is that the hotel does not provide chairs on the beach. At this price point, I do not think that hotel provided beach chairs is an unreasonable request :) Overall, we can't wait to go back next year (and fingers crossed there are chairs on the beach)!!!

Hotel Breakers is broken. Location is everything. Being sandwiched between a world-class amusement park (Cedar Point) and a glorious beach on Lake Erie helps to pave over a lot of the bad experience, but this hotel needs to do better, or make more drastic changes. Our stay was ahead of the Labor Day weekend. It was a relatively quiet week, but we still forked over quite a bit of money for our room and expected a commensurately good stay. Not the case, particularly in two areas. The room. The floor of our bathroom was sandy when we arrived. Very sandy. While I appreciate this is a beachfront hotel, the hotel should too, and be taking extra measures to clean the floors. We were also drastically short on supplies. Half a roll of toilet paper for four of us?! One square inch of soap? I think the re-supplier and cleaning staff missed the room outright. There was no expectation set about what to expect housekeeping-wise, and I guess traditional housekeeping is not back in play yet. Service was sporadic. Got fresh towels on two of the three days of our stay, but had to call down for additional soap, etc. No cleaning or made beds. I guess this is the current policy?!? Otherwise, the room is very basic. The restaurants. Beware being a ‘captive audience’. The only other practical option for dinner is to eat at the park right before closing. Otherwise, you pretty much belong to the resort. TGI Fridays and Starbucks should really audit the hotel staff servicing these places, as the brands are being tarnished by poor service. Starbucks was down an espresso machine and should have done a much better job trying to get it fixed, and also communicating this information. It took 45 minutes to get three lattes, and the second and third were delivered with 2 or 3 minutes in between, leaving the first two lattes quite cool. Frustrating, especially with kids chomping at the bit to get out and hit the park. TGI Fridays service and food were consistently poor. The servers are undertrained and do not pay attention to even the simplest of details. The food was cold and uninspiring. (Side note, and credit where credit is due: Tomo Japanese Steakhouse provided a “meets expectations” experience, and our server at Perkins was experienced and completely on the ball.) Overall, this is not a value-for-money experience, and despite the location, I think the next time we will stay at a better hotel and drive into the park. I suppose there is presently an argument to be made that “good help is hard to find right now”, but what I cannot square is that the experiences provided by staff members we encountered inside the Cedar Point amusement park were superb all around – rides, games, food service, ecology, you name it. If Cedar Fair can provide a Disney-level experience inside the park, they should be able to do so in the accompanying hotel as well, and they certainly failed the test this time. My suggestion to Cedar Fair: Do what you do best… partner with Holiday Inn Club or a similar entity to take the hotel off your hands and work together with them to provide a tremendous experience leveraging your individual strengths.

Our return visit to Hotel Breakers (and Cedar Point) was a terrific experience. We stayed in a Lakeview Suite - which was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful when we had questions regarding laundry and directions. We had meals at both Perkins and TGI Fridays (both on-site) - and the food was good. The convenience of not having to leave the property can not be overstated. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel for the proximity to the theme park and for the on-site amenities.

The hotel staff were all very friendly and polite but that's where it ends. Rooms were not made up well. Dirty towels were left in room and no new towels! After a 45 min wait and 2 phone calls clean towels were brought and you have to tip them for something you should have already had! Perkins was OK for breakfast but a very long wait with most of the seats empty. A lot of time in the park lost while waiting. Friday's for dinner was truly disgusting. The entire restaurant was filthy and full of flies. Tabletops/windos were filthy with employees standing around. The hotel is very expensive and the overall experience is just not worth the money.

We had two rooms on the 8th floor. Had smoke alarm going off for two days. They finally moved us at midnight with a child and had to call the fire department. That happens but a 20 % discount for 2 nights of no sleep was just not acceptable and the front desk gal had a really bad attitude when I asked for more. It was a take it or leave it situation. The hotel and their facilities are nice and Bay harbor food was great. The room experience did leave a bad taste. Not sure we will return.

What a great location adjacent to the parks, and what nice rooms! But both internet and cell service were abysmal, making it almost impossible for a couple of members of our party to do necessary work (BYO hotspot). The cheapest motel in the country has better internet. And I understand that everyplace is short-staffed right now, but the hotel should warn you that there is virtually no housekeeping--we had to call for fresh towels and put our own trash outside our door. With two kids in tow, we could have used a mid-stay vacuum and bed linen change, but I don't think housekeeping entered our rooms at all during our four-night stay. A couple more dining options would have been welcome, too.

We stayed for a full week in August 2022. Pros: Terrific location with a short walk to the park/water park and right outside is the beach. Rooms were clean and decor attractive. Multiple pools and two bars, a small arcade (the card from the park arcade also works there!) TGIFriday and Perkins, Starbucks if those are your jam, plus a very fun hibachi all on site. We had an amazing view of the park out our window. Cons: The basic rooms are not great for a longer trip - only 1 towel hook for 4 towels (zero towel bars). The bathroom was dinky. Tub struggled to drain (sand never went down at all...) Closet with no door and no hangers. 3 drawers for 4 people. One of them refused to stay closed. Perkins not open for dinner our first night (never checked if it was open any other night.) One bartender was really crabby every single time although the other one was great. 10th floor no longer has concierge lounge (our fault for relying on reviews from 2 years ago and not reading the reservation specs carefully...) Next year we will get a bigger room!

This place has it all - relax in the pool, play on the beach, sit by a fire or race on a roller coaster ** fun for every age. We have stayed here 5 times now and absolutely love it. Stay at lighthouse point and cook on the grill to save some extra money too
