The room was basic. Everything very cheap in quality. The bathroom was in serious need of maintenance. No hand soap or other toiletries provided. This was the only room we could get for a nearby event. Would not recommend.

I've been staying here for extended periods on and off for several months. I'd actually rate it at 3.5 rather than 4. The breakfast is basic. The rooms are clean. The bathrooms are charming. The beds I had in my many different rooms were comfortable. Both the heating and the air conditioning were fine in season. The pool is a... More

The oversized pool is immaculate and refreshing. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the rates are reasonable. Staff goes above and beyond to please their guests. Be sure to book your stay with Tina and look for Chuck at poolside.

Clerk was extrememly rude and completely unaccommodating. My husband and I went into the room and notice the bedding consists of 2 sheets and one very thin supposed to be white blanket, which has stains all over it, my husband goes and asks for an additional blanket and was told to turn up the heat.

We found the Crystal Inn was near to local beaches and a pleasant place to stay. I had an issue with the tv and Tina the Front Desk Agent came to the room and fixed the problem immediately. Friendly staff, close to beaches, i would recommend them.
