Crystal Beach Suites Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed here about a dozen times, for business trips 4-6 times a year. Very comfortable accommodations and the location is super- on the beach, with no fewer than a dozen restaurants within 1-2 blocks, as well as a supermarket to stock the kitchenette in the hotel room. Nice gym off the lobby. Super friendly staff. Minor complaint: TV's are a little small (about 24 inch), but there are two of them, which is good, and who comes here to watch TV anyway? Also, because hotel faces beach, unless you have beachfront room, all other rooms face north or south -- facing neighboring hotels, so the view is of other peoples' hotel rooms. Best to keep window blinds down at all times.

This place was clean, had amazing customer service, and was on the beach. Room 313 had good water pressure, hot/cold water, clean carpet/towels/sheets. We had ZERO complaints. Unfortunately, the hotel can't control what is going on around their establishment. Our "city view" room was the view of a vacant/run down hotel next door, and the construction (throughout Miami) was horrendous. We are the type of couple that doesn't mind a lower star rated room because we are out on beach all day, and partying all night. Our room is for sleeping. BUT, if you care about an updated room, room service, etc. this may not be the place for you. More pros are- Publix, beer, liquor, food, and bus/FREE trolley are all within walking distance. If this place was sitting in SOBE it would be 3x the price, but don't mistake North/Mid beach for SOBE. (The ol' saying, you get what you pay for, would be fitting here.) We did not use the gym or pool, but it looked nice. We used plenty of hotel towels on the beach and paid $20 for an umbrella and 2 lounge chairs all day

This hotel is not modern by any means but it is very spacious. There was a separate living room area. Valet parking is $30. Overall staff was nice. Public beach entrance very close.

Front desk and valley parking stuff excellent But the house keeping some are not good. I had to tell them to clean the room couple days and they didn’t not friendly at all too. I called because I forgot my scarf that I loved they told me wasn’t there when I knew 100 % I left it there before I left. Very disappointed.

Staff is doing the most possible with the age of the hotel. Very Good location. Would stay again

I liked the room, but they have to fix some of the furniture in the room, I also liked the location of the hotel so close of the beach I loved it, I was surprised that the room had a small kitchen with plates, cops and things that helped us to cook sometimes.

I stayed here for 3 nights. I was able to check in early, and the staff was very nice. They held our luggage ($1 per luggage) after we checked out because we had a later flight. We were still able to use all the amenities. The hotel is right on the beach and within walking distance to great restaurants. Walgreen, CVS, and Publix are also a quick walk away. The room was equipped with a nice kitchen and large living room.

Hotel exceptionally clean! Staff and. front sesk very friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay there again! Bed was very comfortable. Just right on the beach.

I stayed in the premium king suite with a couple of friends. The king bed was comfortable as was the pull out sofa. It wasn't a large room but was fine for 4 adults. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was extremely clean. Staff was always cleaning common areas. Room was clean and updated. Valet parking was affordable and most convenient and offered in and out access. I didn't use wifi but did have a strong signal in the room. We had an ocean view even though we didn't select and ocean front room. I would definitely stay here and recommend this place!

The location on the beach was good, gym and rooms need updates

I thought the hotel was a great bargain place...great for the family. It was a little far from South Beach, but that meant it was more quiet, anyway, and once you are too far to walk, what's a little further? Practically NO service, but it was made up for with everything available do it yourself, a very complete kitchenette, and even a coin operated laudromat for emergencies...perfect budget family place, to buy breakfast and lunch stuff and do it yourself. the beach was amazing and literally right there.

Needed a safe and reasonably priced hotel close to the beach for a quick vacation trip to Miami. This place fit the bill... clean and comfortable with a great location.

Convinient location and nice room. Stayed at the renovated room twice and one time at the older room. For a family I would recommend a renovated one and for a couple just the older version will be fine.

Good relation price/location. Staff friendly. Small room but confortable and clean

The Front desk staff were on point, helpful, courteous and very professional. The location is great in terms of being on the right part of S. Beach with plenty to do nearby within walking distance. That's all the positive there is. Room was sub-par, hotel poorly maintained, and overall not recommended.

The hotel was a little dated and had a bit of a smell but the room was cozy enough to feel at home for the 5 nights we did stay. The fact it had a small pool in back just feet from the ocean was great when the water was too choppy to swim in but still felt like we were at the beach front. The area was much more quite than south beach and felt safe.

the service were great, and great location, will definitely visit again

Great overall hotel. Note, my Premium room was renovated compared to the pictures, but I am not sure if all the other rooms have been upgraded. Decent location in mid-Miami Beach near highways. Parking: You can pay the $20 overnight for valet, or park in city lots/surface streets for free from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. when it is unenforced from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., it is $1/hour if you can find a spot. Room has a nice kitchen area, and there is a Publix grocery store a block south of the hotel. This would make for a great place to stay 2+ nights between the supermarket and local restaurants.

Location was great! Simply step outside and he beach was right there. Didn't like that there were no oceanfront rooms and the beds were super hard and uncomfortable. But every thing else was fine.

I think the hotel was in a great location and the price was awesome! highly recommend to everyone
