“Tropical Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We were on our way to Key West, and needed a place to stay for just one night. Read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and thought we'd try and get a room. We were lucky enough to get a suite, and it was amazing. It was so tropical-like, you almost felt like you were at an island getaway! The gardens were beautiful, the paint colors and paintings on the walls were wonderful and it was spotless, which is always a priority with us. Very helpful staff, and a wonderful relaxing breakfast in the tiki hut topped off our visit. Looking forward to going back and spending more time there!

We really enjoyed our stay at Cranes Beach House. The gardens are lovely and make the place seem much larger than it really is. There are plenty of quiet areas to sit and relax as well as two pools. The hotel area is very quiet yet is only 5 mins from East Atlantic Ave (with all it's shops and restauarants) and the beach. Having looked around we would not want to stay anywhere else in Delray. WIFI is included in the price (unlike some hotels).
The only gripe is the flimsy plastic cutlery, and paper plates/cups at breakfast which did not seem to belong in such a pleasant hotel.

Cranes Beachhouse and Tiki Bar popped up on my Hotels tonight phone app when we were looking for a place to stay on a recent drive around south Florida. This is a well run property, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the landscaping gives you the sense that you are not in town but at an Oasis. The small appointments were nice, the two pools a nice option as quiet places to read or enjoy a swim. The room was clean, the bed comfortable. Not your standard hotel "box"..if you are looking for something a little different give it a try.

Crane's BeachHouse just makes you smile the minute you walk into its tropical paradise of exotic foliage, two pools, funny signposts, tiki huts, mosaic fountains, and colorful paint colors. Very well-maintained and clean, the rooms and overall property are comfortable and soothing. This little hotel is secluded yet minutes away from the beach and all the beachfront activities. It reminded us of a property where we had stayed in Key West. You will not be disappointed in this fun, whimsical lodging choice. My only regret was that we didn't get to stay longer in this little paradise!

Four blocks from the Del Ray Beach, this place is an intimate cozy yet elegant without being ostentatious place to stay. I had a lovely room with windows on three of my four walls which let me have a nice evening cross breeze and each window was partly shaded by palm trees. Nicely appointed, many little details handled subtly. Everyone, and I mean everyone was nice, friendly and most remembered my name after a few minutes. They anticipated my needs and wants before I even knew I had them and made my stay relaxing and easy. The Tiki Bar is an informal little stand near the pool serving beer, wine and champagne with live music on the weekends. The music can be low key or for dancing depending on the clientele there at the time. If it is too noisy, there is another pool farther away where you can barely hear the music and enjoy the waterfall instead. Check the offered discounts at local merchants. There is one for the chocolate store.....and a beach front restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyable and not your typical beach hotel.

My husband and I visit family in Palm Beach County every year. This year we stayed in Delray Beach at Cranes. WOW...perfect little spot and the staff are wonderful. We arrived a day late (Canada Air not as wonderful), and Cranes was able to rent our room and then give us an extra night at the end of the stay OR a refund,. This took a little prompting from my mom who lives nearby but she says they were delighted to help. It's quiet, and while there were children about it never felt like a nursery. Our room was well equipped and so clean. If you stay in a smaller suite, ask for a ground floor room as you will get the added bonus of a little patio out back. The larger one-bedrooms have balconies and patios too. The location is fantastic, less than 5 minutes to the beach and just off the hustle and bustle of Atlantic Ave. But in the end the staff is what make the place so nice - they really look after you!

Room Tip: Ground floor so you get a little patio out the back

Our new home away from home! Service +++ Gardens +++ Location +++ Bed +++ oh so soft. :) We couldn't be happier! We love CRANES. What's wrong with the people who left negative reviews?! Crazy. See for yourself, you wont be disappointed. Valentines Day there was a rose and chocolate in our room, but they didn't stop there, later that night at the Tiki Bar the bartender handed us another. Tiki torches and lanterns lit the walkways, and as the palm fronds danced in the moonlight I felt like we were in a movie. Bottom line if you are looking for something sweet to do with your honey Crane's is the place to go! We got a one bedroom suite with kitchen which was awesome and convenient. They serve a nice breakfast of bagels, fruit and other goodies which was perfect while in vacation mode. Try a smoothy they were extra yum. I would get up, stroll down to the covered patio and nosh with nature. Was such a great way to start the day. The staff was amazing. We wanted to do some 'out-of-the-box' activities and they sent us to paint a masterpiece, feed giraffes, and on an early morning paddle that may have changed my life. My husband says I could go on for days, so I will leave you with this, there will always be other places to stay, but when WE come to Delray, Crane's will be our one and only. And there's something to be said for that! Thank you Crane's, I hope you read this! - The Yardleys room 12

Room Tip: We loved our One Bedroom Suite!
