“Great Place, Highly Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2008

I've been coming here for over a year, an have stayed all times of the year. I've never had a place that continiously goes out of their way to ensure confort and satisifaction. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Off all the places I stay at, I look forward to going to Crystal Inn in Neptune. The price is very good, and the bed is comfortable. The rooms are always clean, and fully stocked with all the aminities needed. I hope whoever stays there has the enjoyment I always get when I am there.

  • Liked — The balcony on 2nd floor and comfort

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2008

The staff were friendly, however i didnt want to prolong the conversation as the lobby/reception area smelled like something had died in it... The room i must say was huge... and there was a balcony (standard with every room) which was nice. I had the king size suite that came with a couch that pulled out. The bathroom (to me) was disgusting... The sink had a wad of gum clogging it and the water would slowly drain... the towels were discolored, and there were stains and cigarette burns in the sheets... not to mention the sheets were marked (in a sharpe pen) "crystal inn"... as if anyone would want to take home THOSE sheets.... Close to american bank, grocery store, liquor store, Ihop (another terrible experience) perkins, applebees and shopping plazas and outlets

  • Liked — The room size close to large shopping area
  • Disliked — everything else

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2008

I've stayed here every once in awhile for the last 10+ years. At one time it was a Howard Johnson's motel. Was here on a Saturday night spur of the moment so without a reservation. They were out of non-smoking Queen bed rooms so I went for a non-smoking King bed room, more spacious, for $10 more.

Somewhat of a welfare motel I believe by the fact I see families packed into some rooms and few vehicles. Never had any problems with the semi-permanent residents other than an occasional noisy room.

Two story building, inside entrance, and all rooms have either a balcony or porch. Could use a little refurbishing but not awful.

Convenient location to Rt 35 and Rt 66. They have a free continental breakfast in the morning but nothing to write home about.

Don't think you'll find them on Orbitz and the like but if you go to their website you can book directly, which years ago you couldn't and would need to call their toll-free number.

For the price a decent option just don't have high expectations.

The hotel lobby, hallway and room were dirty. Several lights did not work in the room. The internet did not work. The walls had holes. Everything looked 40 years old. The bed was creaking. The worst problem was that the door to the common hallway had a half-inch spacing at the bottom. Because of this we would hear everything going on in the hallway. This hotel was frequented by loud obnoxious people. There was a security guard present.

We asked for a refund when we saw the room and they refused.
