The Breakers on the Ocean has the distinction of being the only full-service hotel located on the ocean in the beautiful sea shore town of Spring Lake, NJ. Originally built in the late 1800s, the hotel has owned by Cosmo and Linda Scardino since 1980 and the couple are still involved in the operation of the fine hotel. The day-to-day management responsibilities are now handled by their sons Anthony and Joseph. The wonderful establishment, a staple and fixture of the Spring Lake community for well more than a century, the charming hotel has been through numerous renovations during the Scardino’s ownership, preserving the integrity of the past, while updating the interior to incorporate 21st century amenities. The most recent updates, from earlier this year were to the dining room and reception area.
The serene ocean atmosphere, the unique feeling of the hotel and the charm of Spring Lake all come together to create the special environment that is The Breakers on the Ocean. As you enter the lobby you immediately will experience an ambiance and style unique to the Jersey Shore. Sparkling chandeliers, etched glass windows, granite floors and custom-woven carpeting are reminiscent of European resort properties. Soothing and complimentary hues of coral and teal, exuding a comfortable elegance, welcome you.
Each of the 73 beautifully appointed guest rooms features a mini refrigerator, Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities, cable television (including all HBO and ESPN channels), DVD player and complimentary high speed internet access. Most rooms have a whirlpool bath and view of the ocean. Luxury rooms also have fireplaces and three tower rooms offer unparalleled views of the impressive coastline and surrounding town. It is the perfect location for a get-way to the shore, as well as a popular venue for corporate meetings, weddings and other celebrations.
The hotel is situated just a few steps from the ocean. It features an outdoor swimming pool and large wrap-around porch. With beach badges included in the stay, guests can enjoy the ocean, just steps away from their beautifully appointed rooms, as well as the two and a half mile non-commercial boardwalk – perfect for a leisurely stroll or an exhilarating jog. The gazebo, directly in front of the hotel and on the boardwalk, is a welcoming spot to sit and relax or read a book.
The Breakers on the Ocean also offers casual dining in an elegant oceanfront setting. Breakfast and lunch are served daily in the sunny Veranda Restaurant which overlooks the pool and ocean. The lunch menu offers a large selection of sandwich platters, gourmet wraps, burgers and salads. Specials change daily and individual house-made pizzas are a specialty not to be missed.
