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

Rooms are a little outdated, but clean & quiet. If you're only looking for a place to sleep, this is perfect. My family of four stayed in a room with two double beds and a pull-out sofa bed comfortably. There are plenty of places around to get breakfast, and it's very close (1 block walk) to the boardwalk and beach.... More

There is little parking and from what the staff say parking places are first come first serve. Not really, you are actually assigned parked but no where in there policies does it... More

Give this hotel a try! Our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable. They let us use a small bathroom to change clothes in to go down to the beach until our room was ready. Room was ready early and they allowed us to check in early and park our vehicle there as well! The location is terrific too!... More

Another great bike week in the history book. Chris was great as always, greeting you with a smile and asking how you and your family have been and catching up with how the rest of the regular guest have been. Chris stops to chat and to make sure everything is up to your expectations. Friendly staff and security, I'll be... More

I rated it very good because for us this place was deserving more than average, but perhaps very good is a little over rated. I would say it was GOOD. We were looking for an affordable place to stay for bike week. Room was just ok for us, but we were pleasantly surprised how big the room was, and it... More
