Nikki at the front desk is amazing! she upgraded our room to OceanFront without us even asking. She asked if we needed anything to let her know. The boardwalk/beach is right outside their door. The room was very large and clean. The balcony was a good size. The price was amazing, we just needed a little R&R and this hotel... More

The pull out couch is awful but the rooms are big and have all the amenities you need. The people are friendly and beds are okay. Its right on the beach and on the boardwalk. I was surprised how clean it was for a beach hotel.

We liked the location, on the boardwalk but the far end from all the craziness. Beach was clean and beautiful. The only problem was the mist coming from the ac unit made everything in the room wet. Maid service was early. I would definitely stay again. Also one of the few places that has smoking rooms available.

We packed a bag and headed to OC on a whim. It was a 5 hour drive and we did not have a room reserved. Crystal Beach Hotel looked like the best option from the slim pickings that were available. We wanted to be directly on the boardwalk, ocean front. Upon my arrival to any hotel/resort, the 1st thing I... More

Spacious, clean rooms right on the Boardwalk! Can't beat the price for the location. I've been to OCMD many times & it is often hard to find a clean hotel, for a good price, in a convenient location- Crystal Beach Hotel is it! Perfect spot for families or friends getting away for the weekend.

Family run business, no discounts but very friendly, and I would go there again. My grand kids loved the pool and proximity to the beach. Can't get better than right on the boardwalk ! Owners available if necessary. Coffee available all day at no charge
