Crowne Plaza Hotel Melbourne - Oceanfront

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On beach. Has transportation to and from airport. Helpful and friendly. Relaxing environment.

was dissapointed that the room smelt musky like there was moisture in the carpet. overall facilities were definitely NOT worth the $190/night cost. was expecting a semi luxurious experience. and they even charge $10 for parking when their rate is ridiculous. A Days Inn may have been cheaper and better if not a Hilton or Marriott. upgrade the overall facility. the lift in the south building shakes and jerks. scary to ride. only one elevator in south building when north has 2. when cold wind is blowing there is no enclosed walkway from one building to other to visit friends, if you are there during winter.

The hotel section the hotel staff gave me when I checked in was an older section of the hotel. The musty old smell inside the room was not very good. I was uncomfortable during the night I even wondered if there had been mildew in the past that maybe wasn't cleaned properly that caused the horrible smell. Won't stay here again.

The staff and other guests at this hotel were nice and fun to be around. Service was great, and we enjoyed talking to other people at the pool and outdoor bar. The deck overlooking the ocean and the pool area were beautiful. Unfortunately, the room was less than I expected. First of all, we reserved a room with two queen beds (why is that cheaper than one king - isn't it twice the laundry? but I digress.). The beds in this room were definitely not queens. We have a queen bed at home. These were "full" maybe. Much smaller than queen. The room smelled a bit musty, but FL is humid so I would have overlooked it. Except, the toilet had gross black mold or something in it. Then, we awoke the next day to discover we'd been devoured by BEDBUGS. We found one that we had crushed after it fed on us, so there is no doubt. The staff courteously moved us to another room that seemed to be clear of bugs. (same black mold in the toilet bowl though.) To top it off, I left my brand new iPhone charger in the first room. So I called and they said they would charge me $10-15 to send it back. I thought that was high, but a new charger would cost me about that, so I agreed. When I got it, I was billed for $35! And it was a discolored old charger. And it took 4 days, so it's not like the overnight FedExed it. For $35. I feel I got taken for a ride, here.

The room was very nice and clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. The hotel is right on the beach, which was beautiful. So thankful we got the deal we did! Would definitely recommend and would go back if we could.

The property is well kept with nice pool and beach front dining. Room I stayed in could get some upgrade/renovation but staff kept it very clean and refreshed with supplies. This beachfront property has a nice beach area with rentals for lounge chairs. I will stay here again if in the area.

Great location, clean and comfortable room. Great amenities and friendly and helpful staff.

Hotel room was big. Would have liked to have a table in the room. Bathroom shower had some problems, but was fixed very promptly. Service was great. Pool was nice. View and balcony was outstanding.

The view from the room was just fantastic and beautiful. Just for that the price was worth it. We took the breakfast deal and it was worth it as well, just having the breakfast on the deck with the waves and the beach view was awesome!! The room was just ok, not the best and not the biggest, but not a big issue. Overall wonderful experience!!

The hotel view was amazing and immediately calming. The check in service went smooth, quickly and was good. We walked into our room and fell in love. The only thing that would have made the experience better was a Jacuzzi tub. We will definitely be a returning customer. Even when we left a stuffed animal in the room after we left/checked out, we contacted the hotel and they sent it back to us - great service and a wonderful experience overall.

I bought this room for my In-laws. They get a late check in which was swift went straight to the room. They had an oceanfront view so they slept with the balcony door open to enjoy the waves. Stuff with swift and courteous about getting them into the room quickly. They enjoy the coffee down by the beach the next morning. They had a great experience and I would definitely recommend staying here again.

Hotel open to the public for amenities and beach access therefore, guest are simply paying for the rooms while the public enjoy. This led to several intoxicated individuals disrupting our time

From the moment I walked in the door to check in I knew this was going to be the best stay ever. Everyone was smiling, friendly and very helpful. The view of the ocean was breath-taking! Dinner on the deck was very delicious! I definitely want to come back!!

the room was dirty, long black hair all over the bathroom in the towels, no water pressure in the shower and the spout was coming out of the wall, they had the windows fog so that you could not see out of them it is not what I expected to pay for a room at the Crowne Plaza. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and I won't be staying there ever again

We had a great time here - the location was perfect, the room was very nice and spacious and the staff were amazing. Rachel at the front desk was super nice and personable! The lobby smelled soooo good when we walked in because of the chocolate shop. They were very accommodating when I asked for a later checkout, too. I would definitely stay here again.

People complain about parking here for good reason: It's inadequate. The overflow lot is across A1A and you usually have to go over on a pedestrian bridge. Heaven forbid it's raining when they're hosting a conference like the Giant Green Egg event they were having when we were there. Also, the bathroom vanity is extremely cramped. Otherwise the beachfront is nice and the staff is extremely helpful.

Food was Great, room was average. Right on the beach with nice balcony.

The staff was very helpful and the location was incredible. It was pricey, but that may have been due to the time of year (March). Not a bad choice for a comfortable hotel.

We booked two rooms for our family of four. Turned out they had placed us in two seperate buildngs. Consequently, our ocean viiew room turned into a view of the bulding next door!

My wife and I decided to suprise my daughter at her graduation from college with a nursing degree. The stay at the Crowne Plaza really helped us through the day.
