We stayed at the hotel over a weekend to enjoy Sea World and the beach. We stayed on the "executive level" which is a joke. Our room was not what I was expecting. Our refrigerator didn't work, the bathroom light had a timer on it so mid shower you are in the pitch dark. We went down for breakfast with... More

Can't imagine staying anywhere else! The staff is lovely, the rooms are clean. The sushi restaurant is excellent but the Islands restaurant was a bit of a drag. The restaurant was not busy, service was slow, the food order was cold but the staff was extremely pleasant in making things right. The staff seems to love us tiki people and... More

The grounds are amazing...You will think you are at a tropical island. The staff is A+. Parking needs to be a bit better, but they do well in handling the crowds. The Tiki Oasis was by far the most organized fun time I have had in a while...take the kids! :)

The Crowne Plaza would be a great hotel if you're in town on vacation or for business. It's its own little self-contained tropical hideaway, with grottos of lush palms, waterfalls and tiki-laden bridges. Islands Sushi has good sushi and cocktails, but your also just across the freeway from Albie's, if you need a steak and some great atmosphere. Staff was... More

I entered this tiki themed time warp because of a conference being held there. It is in fact probably one of the better hotels in this conglomeration of motels and hotels near the airport. People there were generally friendly, but the property is worn and lots of little things conspired to make it an annoying place to stay. Pool doesn't... More
