Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located along the Rock River just north of downtown Rockford, the Cliffbreakers Riverside Hotel offers a budget-priced stay that aims higher than your run-of-the-mill chain option. It's a good option for visiting nearby attractions like Rock Cut State Park, the Rockford Art Museum, the Rockford Speedway or the Anderson Japanese Gardens. 

Rooms range from standard and riverview rooms to themed suites and whirlpool rooms all the way to two-story loft-style townhomes and a special "Sultan's Suite." Each night's stay includes complimentary hot continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, and access to the fitness center and indoor pool. 

On-site dining is provided by the Cliffbreakers Restaurant, serving dinner on Friday and Saturday with a Sunday brunch service as well. The taproom, bar and lounge is open daily -- it's distinguished by its historic taproom, originally built for the Fauerbach Brewery in the mid-1800s. 


General Restaurant open Fri/Sat/ Sunday for brunch only.
Faurberbach Tap Room open 7 days a week from 5-10pm
