We liked being along the river and away from city traffic

It was quiet and the bed was extremely comfotable.

Staff was friendly. Property seemed to be dated however.

I was placed in the exterior building, but the two rooms there were not clean and smelled terribly. The staff helped make it nicer, and eventually moved me to the main building. The main building was very clean and very nice. Overall, the staff was super and assisted me in making my stay very good.

I didn’t like the room , it was not how the show in the pics , also sheets weren’t clean , definitely this hotel is not 3 star ( I will say 1 star )

Property was pleasant but not exceptional. Smokers right out side our door. Parking near our room was scarce.

Staff was friendly, we had a wonderful riverfront room, pool was warm and relaxing and the cafe staff was very nice and the food was excellent!

Bed was very comfortable and the room is spacious.

Front Desk check-in was great, super friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Looks like they are updating, but still acceptable.

The facility needs some attention. The comode continued to run. The refridge made noise all night. The outlet by the sink did not work. The sink did not have a knob to release the water. The ice maker in my building did not work. The restaurant was closed due to a fire, but it did not look like any cleanup had been done.

The room was noticeably larger than comparable rooms at most motels. The lobby is HUGE and attractive. Crystal Cove Resort is not on a main thoroughfare and there was virtually no traffic noise. Their clientele must come from word of mouth and folks like myself who discover them through Orbitz, etc. Very nice swimming pool and beautiful cove.

Hotel was listed as being St Augustine it's about 37 miles away It's in an interesting part of FL and overall a good experience

WE were in town to visit family. It was close to their home

The hotel is not a 5 start hotel but it's nice . Comfortable . There food sucks . But other then that it was okay .

I apologize that there was an issue with the first rooms there is never a good justification for guest dissatisfaction. I am happy that we were able to correct it and continue to earn your business!

Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to tell us about your stay, I have had no issues with our ice machine and apologize if it gave you a problem. We take any complaint we get serious and I hope that the fact that we fixed every issue the moment it was brought to our attention did give you some comfort. None of our sinks have knobs they have handles so again I apologize if you struggled with their functionality. Our restaurant did catch on fire and the cleaning process has started but it was no small fire and is truly been a lot of work. I appreciate your feedback and will work to earn your business again.
