Junk Sailor

Drunk Sailor or High school Beach Trip, but not family and kids. Rusted frig,micro wave and stove. Bed needed duct tape to keep it together. Carpet was old but not as old as the beds, hey but the bath was ok. Staff was friendly, even showed me a few other rooms, but nothing any better than what we had plus we would have to pack up and move. We were only there for three days, Thank God.

Family spring break getaway

The overall experience was average. The hotel needs some renovations. The staff was wonderful. I probably will not stay again due to the old rooms and the beds were not comfortable.

You get what you pay for...

If you can afford to spend a little extra $$ DO and book a better hotel. The Crown Reef has seen better days and the rooms need a make-over. The rooms were clean however, outdated, beds not so comfortable and the grounds need some TLC as well. On a scale of 1-5 I'd give it a 2!

The food was far better in the locally owned rest. than the chain rest. Although Olive Garden is worth the wait.

Room was ok, not really happy with the 20 pools they advertise

The room was comfortable but the fact that you have to take an elevator to go to the restrooms if you are at the pool really bother me and my family, not all the pools were open in spring break season, hot tubs were not actually hot... If you are looking for a cheap stay, this would be the place....

Good girlfriends getaway!

Oceanfront view is the greatest. The staff was very helpful especially housekeeping. The beds were comfortable. The room and furniture were a bit worn and needed repair and painting. The bed linen was old and worn, from the mattress pad to the spread, in dire need of replacement. The scenery and outside amenities almost made up for everything else.

Great location, nice enough

This is a nice place to stay. There is a nice restaurant with a peer and a decent priced menu right next to it. The pools were a little cold and crowded, but as long as you go in the summertime, the outside ones should be warm enough to swim in (I went in March). The beds need an upgrade, but they were comfortable enough for sleep. Very nice place.
