Enjoyed having magazine and morning coffee in gazebo. Pool was immaculate & staff was friendly and helpful. great place to stay if your an out of guest and attending a concert at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. Highly recommend Eatontown Crystal Inn NOT the Crystal Inn in NEPTUNE!

In town for a concert at PNC Bank Arts Center, location of this motel was convenient and clean. Was able to have coffee and a book in the gazebo and were impressed with the cleanliness of the outdoor pool. Staff was very friendly & helpful! Don't get this Crystall Inn confused with the one in Neptune.....I recommend Eatontown.

I was skeptical because of the location, but so worth the money! Cleanest pool I have ever seen! Nicest facility husband and wife hotel managers! Lots of laughs with them and so accommodating! Recommend!

People smoke in and out of their rooms at all times. The smell is unbearable. People staying at this place are intimidating (gangsters, drug dealers, who knows) The room had a microwave that didn't have the glass plate. There was a lot of noise all night.

A happy place. The inn is as advertised. It is clean. The bed is good. The bathroom and room are more than adequate for the purpose. The air-conditioner works and is quiet. Parking is good. The price is utterly reasonable. Breakfast is a bit sparse but the price is right so deal with it. I recommend it for a couple... More

My kids and I have stayed here a handful of times. We always come back because the staff is great, especially Tina at the front desk. She and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make the weekend trips with my kids really comfortable. The pool is amazing - always kept so clean. Rooms are clean.... More

Crack hotel, rathole welfare, lowlifes. That's all you will see in this dump. Rooms look like they were painted by 3 year olds. Rugs smell like urine. Believe it or not I was told they were just renovated. Save yourself from misery and go somewhere else.

My wife and I stayed the Crystal Inn, Eatontown NJ this past Memorial Day weekend and we were pleasantly surprised by the value of this hotel. The complimentary breakfast and pool access for such a low nightly rate compared to other hotels in the area were an unexpected bonus. However, while my wife and I were lounging around the pool...

My wife and her brother stayed here for 3 nights from the 25 Oct and they found the Crystal Inn to be very good value for the money paid, the room was of a good size and had 2 dbl beds and was cleaned every day and kept spotless. The staff were always very pleasant and helpful.

We requested a non- smoking room however the first thing that we noticed when we opened the room to our door was the heavy odor of cigarette smoke. The smell was in the curtains, the bed sheets and the pillows. While the room appeared clean there was noticeable wear and tear on the light fixtures and in the bathroom. The... More
