The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful and the location is brilliant, being about 10 minute walk from the main harbour area. However, that's where the good bits end. The room was crambed and the bathroom wasn't very clean. Also, we ran out of hot water and had to wait hours for it to come back back on... More

We spotted this place walking to Tortuga Bay and were attracted by the well kept exterior (lovely flowers and plants). Since we were already staying elsewhere for the night before going to Isabella, we booked to stay for our return to Puerto Agora with the very friendly José.As it's low season, we bargained on the price a little and got...

We found the Hotel Crossman by chance while walking to Tortuga Bay. We found Hotel Crossman to be really lovely, with big comfortable beds, clean facilities, a nice atmosphere, lovely host and great value. We stayed here for five nights in a room with a balcony overlooking bougainvillea. The hotel is a block awat from the cheap restaurants in Charles... More

We stayed in room #3 on the 1st floor one night in July before we headed to a Galapagos cruise. It is the worse room we've ever stayed in anywhere. We had trouble to open the door from inside which was a serious safety issue in the event of fire. The shower did not work. It gave you boiling hot... More

The moment we entered the hostel we had bad feelings, which were only reinforced during the upcoming minutes. We were supposed to have breakfast in the hotel, but arrived from another island 15 minutes too late to get served, as they finished serving breakfast at 8 am. Staff did not even bother to lift from the table to speak to... More

I recently brought a group of 12 VolunTravel volunteers to the Crossman Hotel while working with a wonderful non-profit in the Galapagos called, Galapagos ICE. The hotel was clean and welcoming, and the staff were friendly and helpful. My volunteers thoroughly enjoyed our experience there and I'd recommend it for others.

Good place in Santa Cruz, the staff and owner are very friendly, and if you have a chance to talk to them you will learn a lot from this place. Highly recommended!
