Simple and straightforward, the 59-room, family-run Breakers Resort Inn is conveniently located for those who want to be based on the southern part of Virginia Beach's beach strip. Rooms are a bit outdated in terms of decor, but all have ocean-view balconies, as well as microwaves and mini-fridges, and some even have whirlpool tubs. There's a small pool and a basic cafe that serves affordable breakfast and lunch, and there are bicycles for guests to borrow free of charge. That said, the property has a bit of a worn-out motel vibe; for something a bit cheerier, consider the Belvedere Beach Resort, on the northern end of the boardwalk.
Beachfront budget hotel with a vintage feel that attracts beachgoing groups and low-key couples
From the outside, the nine-story Breakers Resort Inn looks like a large condominium block, but it's actually a budget hotel with just 59 rooms and suites, all of which face the ocean. It's separated from the street by a two-level parking lot that protects it from most of the street noise. Inside, the lobby is simple, with a blue-and-orange color scheme, vinyl bench seating and a few chairs, and a small front desk. While the small pool deck can get crowded at times, the hotel is less a spot for hanging out and more a convenient place to lay your head in between beach days. It's popular with budget travelers, low-key couples, and families, but doesn't offer much for business or luxury travelers.
In the heart of downtown Virginia Beach, right on the boardwalk, the oceanfront Breakers Resort is surrounded by other hotels, as well as restaurants and shops. It's just next to the Virginia Beach Amusement Park and a two-minute walk to the town's fishing pier. Neptune's Park, a popular summertime evening concert spot, is a 20-minute walk up the beach. The Norfolk International Airport is approximately 30 minutes away, depending on traffic.
Ocean-facing rooms and suites with private balconies, microwaves, and outdated decor; some have whirlpool tubs
All of the rooms at the Breakers Resort Inn overlook the beach from private balconies. The decor is vintage (or really just outdated), but clean and well-kept. Most Virginia Beach hotel rooms have nautical beach decor in shades of blue and yellow; the retro Breakers Resort, conversely, relies on medium-colored wood and muted shades of green, blue, and peach. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffee machines, while higher level rooms also have kitchenettes, whirlpool tubs, and extra beds. Bathrooms are simple but in good repair, with small hairdryers, basic toiletries, and single sinks; some have combination shower/tubs.
The Breakers Resort Inn's greatest amenity is the beach, which is just out the back door, but there's not a lot to do within the hotel's walls. The outdoor pool has lounge chairs and views of the beach, but it's quite small and only five feet deep at its deepest point. The on-site Boardwalk Cafe serves standard American cuisine at breakfast and lunch, and can put together lunch boxes for the beach. The hotel also has bicycles that are free for guest use, and each room is entitled to one parking spot; there's a fee for guests wanting to park multiple cars. Wi-Fi is free and available throughout the hotel, though it can be spotty in some places.
