We are staying down here now so I decided to write a review. It's a great little place. Very close to the beach. Not even a full block. The maid service was very good. Staff is very friendly. Nobody bothered us. It's not a hotel! It's a motel. You get what you pay for. Rooms are a decent size. And... More

The hotel I usually stay at was not an option this year, so my boyfriend and I had to look for another place to stay. My boyfriend and I don't make a lot of money, so finances are always a struggle when picking a place to stay. Crystal Sands motel was within our price range, which was a plus for... More

I like the Crystal Sands,but the amenities are terrible. Not even a plastic spoon was available to stir my tea with, which I provided. If the Crystal Sands are going to continue to be this cheap I will stay somewhere else for the same price and better service.

First off let me start by saying I am VERY cautious and picky about the cleanliness of wherever I stay, and this was my first stay at anything other then 4/5 star hotels. Me and my boyfriend came down this past week for senior week and had booked an efficiency room. STAFF- I had arrived early at the motel and... More

When my spouse and I checked into this motel recently, we felt like we had checked into a divey motel we would have stayed in when we were in our 20's. This place made Motel 6 motel rooms look like they were the Ritz-Carlton! The best option in the room was the fly swatter to kill the flys. The room... More

My husband and I decided on a quick trip to the beach last weekend. We've gone to O.C. for thirty years and wanted a place that was convenient to our favorite spots and not outrageously priced. The hotels have gotten really overpriced. We found the Crystal Sands, and it was perfect. We travel lots, and this was one of the... More

This motel offers studio apartments which they call efficiency rooms. Unlike some branded chain of hotels, this hotel offers a tall refrigerator with separate freezer section. There is no breakfast served, but have many restaurants and diners near by. Around 500 feet to the board walk. I wish it had a toaster and a coffee maker. Over all we were... More

My overall experience at the motel was fine, except for the parking. The main lot is way too small, which in turn, if you are not lucky enough to get the first lot, then you are assigned the second lot which is 2 blocks away, which lucky me I had to use this lot, I know it is expected to... More

Perfect find for summer getaway! The beds were comfortable, fridge cold, stove top and microwave if neded, and great water pressure of shower. Super close the beach and a decent walk to Fractured Prune for breakfast. Parking lot is super tight, so be prepared. Sure it is not a 5-star hotel, but if you are going to the beach it... More

My significant other and I were very disappointed with our room at Crystal Sands. We were mislead on the type of room. We were suppose to have a room with a kitchenette but that was not so. Instead we had this little hole in the wall, no kitchenette. The room was damp. Our swim suits and towels wouldn't even dry.... More
