Pros: There was an electric massage recliner chair in the room. I enjoyed that
Cons: A complete renovation is well over due.
I had to extend my stay in Rockford an extra day and had already checked out of my hotel. The city was sold out. Cliffbreakers was probably a nice hotel back in the 1990's. Good thing I know where it was because they didn't "leave the light on for me". No lit signage out front. Only a light at front door. They said they are in the start of a complete face lift renovation. That's what they told me 2 years ago when I got this place 'blind' on Hotwire.

Two Nights at Cliff Breakers

Pros: Location, view, and intricate building structure.
Cons: More energetic staff. Staff were pleasant though.
Location: Sushi, GoodWill Thrift Store, and plenty of other restaurants.
CliffBreakers was a cozy experience for the weekend. The hotel is warm, beautiful, clean. The front lobby is enchantingly decorated. The continental breakfast is free but nothing out of this world. The fitness room was small but convenient for a quick work out. I enjoyed my stay. The room was clean, well supplied. I was comfortable, to say the least.

Cons: Seems as though the hotel was going through a transition stage, so will be nice to see the changes they make in the future.
Location: There was a strip of stores right next door and several places to eat. Also had a great view of the river.
Overall, had a nice experience. Check-in was quick and easy, staff was friendly and the pool area was very nice. Didn't get the room we thought we were getting, but it was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable.

Pros: Close proximity of where we needed to go.
Cons: New mattresses. That is a baseline necessity
The hotel seems to need a lot of repairs. The mattress my husband and I slept on must be 20 years old and we both rolled to the middle all night. Slept horrible with a backache in the AM.

All of the front desk staff were amazing and the Hispanic (I believe) housekeeper was very friendly/helpful unlike the rest of the housekeepers I had interaction with. The rooms were decent but could use some updating. Overall the stay was an enjoyable experience and I would recommend to others.

It was close to the family we were visiting and had a pool (a must when traveling with kids). However, the hotel needs to be updated. The walls in the hallway and room were dented and paint scraped where luggage had banged into it. The sleeper sofa had rips in the fabric - but the pullout was surprisingly comfortable. The pool was on the colder side. Breakfast was very basic but the danish were good. When we return to the area we'll probably look for other accommodations.
