My friend and I stayed for 7 nights. Staff very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. The room was on the small side but fine for the amount of time we spent in it. Nice little outside deck area to sit. The only complaint I had was that it was a little musty smelling . Possibly updating air conditions with dehumidifiers would... More

We had an excellent stay. The rooms were great and clean. The staff nice and friendly. The price was good. My husband and I stayed for 5 days and had a great time. The parking was a little tight but other than that no problems. Great location. Will be going back!

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
