Wow, I still cannot believe the gripes that are posted on this site about our favorite hotel. Once again, I believe it is because the people who LOVE the Crown Reef do not post reviews. I wish they would start. We talk to people every time we stay there and they are HAPPY and ENJOYING THEIR STAY!! The staff -... More

Talk about your complete misrepresentation! NO heated outdoor pools, no heated lazy river and no heated outdoor hottubs....only 1 heated indoor pool that comes complete with 50,000 screaming kids and clumps of hair in your fingers as you swim!!!! NO WI-FI whatsoever. Elevators that barely work and chipped tiles everywhere...total safety hazard. Completely renovated rooms?? Hardly! Our room came complete... More

We booked this hotel because we got an amazing last-minute, online deal. I had stayed at Crown Reef about 10 years ago and remembered what a nice hotel it was, so I was shocked to get rates around $70 a night. Then I read the reviews online. Some were pretty scary!; however, we were pleasantly surprised. Based off of the... More

As some of the other reviews I read, I also booked this hotel through Groupon. I have booked other hotels through Groupon before and have had good experiences, so dispite the reviews I read after booking I thought I would give it a shot. It was not disclosed when I booked the room that the property was under renovation, so... More

We knew upon arrival that there was a renovation in progress. Parking garage is very tight and hard to park in. Loaded our stuff on 2 carts we found and headed towards the elevators. There are 3 in our tower. Find out only 1 works. 20 minutes later, we get to the 10th floor. We enter are narrow little room... More

Room was big, some door handles were missing, some of the lamps didn't work, there was empty soda bottles under anywhere they'd fit, the pool area reeked of marijuana smoke, the Wi-Fi was like a phantom that would appear but disappear once you connected to it, but what the hell, it's cheap. Won't be back.

I read a review of this place that someone called it "A Dump". I thought that was extreme and booked anyway. DON'T DO IT! Even it they gave me a room for 29 dollars a night, I wouldn't take it. We just got back today -- This place is awful and unsafe. The elevators made such a loud knocking noise... More

I normally do not make hotel reviews but after staying at this hotel for one night I had to get away. I was booked for 3 nights and just getting on the elevator made me cringe. The elevators are extremely old and worn down. Not to mention how nosey they are. Then when I got off on my floor, my... More

Their website shows fabulous pictures of the resort. The place is actually a disaster. The one tiny indoor pool is dirty and not really indoor, just some plastic sheeting that blows in the wind. The hallways are dirty and dingy, the elevator sounds like you are going to crash everytime and the whole place is just falling apart. The advertised... More
