We had planned an impromptu July 4 weekend at OCMD. It was tricky finding a place that would take our reservation without staying for the entire long weekend. The crystal sands worked with us and cut us a pretty good detail. Our room was very clean and the on site parking was fabulous. It was a short walk to the... More

I wasn't expecting anything amazing when I booked here because I was just looking for a semi-inexpensive room for one night, but it was honestly very nice! When we first checked in, the girls were super nice and the office looked and smelled clean, which you don't always find at some places. The room was very spacious and very clean.... More

My family has been staying at Crystal Sands for over 10 years. It is one of the cleanest hotels in Ocean City, and less than a block to the boardwalk and beach. Bike rentals nearby as well as a number of restaurants. All of the staff is very friendly, and special requests are no problem. The rooms are clean, with... More

I and the family have been coming to Crystal Sands for years during the Cruze-in events in May. We have nothing but great things to say about Chris and his Staff. They all treat us like friends. If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay that is not the Hilton, but is clean and well kept and a... More

My friend and I stayed for 7 nights. Staff very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. The room was on the small side but fine for the amount of time we spent in it. Nice little outside deck area to sit. The only complaint I had was that it was a little musty smelling . Possibly updating air conditions with dehumidifiers would... More

We had an excellent stay. The rooms were great and clean. The staff nice and friendly. The price was good. My husband and I stayed for 5 days and had a great time. The parking was a little tight but other than that no problems. Great location. Will be going back!

We are staying down here now so I decided to write a review. It's a great little place. Very close to the beach. Not even a full block. The maid service was very good. Staff is very friendly. Nobody bothered us. It's not a hotel! It's a motel. You get what you pay for. Rooms are a decent size. And... More

My boyfriend and I don't make a lot of money, so finances are always a struggle when picking a place to stay. Crystal Sands motel was within our price range, which was a plus for... More

I like the Crystal Sands,but the amenities are terrible. Not even a plastic spoon was available to stir my tea with, which I provided. If the Crystal Sands are going to continue to be this cheap I will stay somewhere else for the same price and better service.
