We really liked this hotel. The room was very clean with a nice jaccuzi tub in the bathroom. Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful. Pit and Pub, Coins, Salty Dog, American Legion and the pancake house were all in easy walking distance.

We stayed here last minute and booked online. We arrived 10 minutes later and the hotel already had our booking! There is parking onsite. We had a standard room which included two queen beds, a partial ocean view, and a mini kitchenette, all for around $56 total. Big TV with lots of channels, plus wifi. It was quiet, clean, and...

We got a great price because it is off season. Nice, large room with 2 very comfortable queen beds. While not oceanfront, the views of the beach and the bay were wonderful. The TV is a little on the small size for the size of the room and the kitchenette consists of just a refrigerator and microwave.

We offer great deals in the off-season and we feel that we are one of the best values on the boardwalk. October and November are great times of the year to come to Ocean City due to the beautiful weather we have in town. We hope to see you again on your next off-season stay in Ocean City, MD. More

Location is great, on the boardwalk, 2 miles from downtown; easy beach access. Room was decent and for the price, I can say I am happy. I requested an oceanview and it is beautiful - plus a balcony! Room and bathroom were clean. The only 2 things I wasn't happy about are very cheap towels that should be changed soon.... More

The towels were completely replaced in June and our bedding package was completely redone in February. Thank you for staying with us at the Crystal Beach Hotel. More

Nice place located at the less noisy section of the boardwalk. The parking garage is real nice that not many other places have. If you've got a large car or tall vehicle, you may just want to park outside. As a non-smoker, I love their policy on smoking violators, which is a monster fee for the clean up. I hate... More

Like you mentioned, we are proud to say that we are a smoke-free property. We are located on the north end of the board walk which makes it convenient for not only relaxing, but taking a short walk to the amusements on the south end of the boards. Thank you for your review. More

My husband and I decided to get a way for a weekend in Ocean City, MD. Neither of us were familiar with the area so I ended up searching for hotels and found Crystal Beach.

Our family took a last minute trip to OC for the three-day weekend. The room was fine--two queen size beds with a pull out couch. There is a mini fridge and microwave. The oceanfront view is great and the location at 25th Street on the boardwalk is also great. It's on the quieter end of the boardwalk, which is nice.... More
