This motel is our favorite place to stay in OC because the price is great, location is perfect, and it is well maintained. The rooms are very nice and the maid service is great. It is a family owned motel and they do a great job! They don't put up with any crap so you can rely on having a... More

The location was great, perfect location near the boardwalk, right in the middle of everything. The room was nice, a good size and clean! I recommend this motel to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay. We didn't have any issues with anything at all.

For a young couple that needs a cheap place to stay, this was perfect. It was very clean; the maids did an excellent job. The only thing we did not like was when we asked for a box of tissues, the owner of the motel said "Nahhhhhhhh." So bring your own tissues...haha. However we really enjoyed our stay, the location...

If you're looking to have a vacation with some privacy I wouldn't go here. We caught the security guard peeking through our windows and going in our rooms. You are being watched 24/7 and cannot go anywhere without being questioned. If you take a bag out of the room the security guard will check your bag. If you are under... More

The security ruined the stay because they were constantly checking in the windows and knocking on the door. They gave you absolutely no privacy. Tv didn't work maids didn't do a good job overall terrible stay would not recommend staying here.

I stayed here for car show week last October because the place we usually stayed was full. The location was really good and it was a good price. The room was clean, bright, and a good size. The security guy was really helpful when my friend got locked out of the room (whoops). Really the only bad thing about it... More

My husband and I were looking for a less expensive hotel in OC for a weekend, which is sadly very hard to find. The Crystal Sands was a *little* more than we wanted to pay, but the location was so good, we couldn't pass it up. We were pleasantly surprised by the property - the room is a great size,... More

A gentleman that was in maintenece (or similar) saw me walking up the steps and stopped what he was doing and grabbed my bags and carried them up to my room...and then... More
