Beautifully restored and maintained hotel with charm, character and comfort all packaged at a very competitive price...room service breakfast a very nice touch!

I love this place is nice,safe,comfortable, clean and super close to the beach in car

Spotlessly clean, impeccably well kept and a wonderful staff. Close to the beach without the noise. Plenty to do nearby.

It was a beautiful property in an historic location. The rooms felt more cozy and Inviting than a normal major hotel chain ex: Howard Johnson etc. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet.

Amazing breakfast!! One of the best I've had at any hotel. Rooms also very comfy and clean. Hotel has a really cool, "vintage " feel to it. Only drawback is not much to do in immediate area (most restaurants/shopping require driving which I didn't like as much) and hotel situated on intersection of two very busy streets (Central and Park St.).

A luxurious step back in time. Very clean, helpfui and courteous staff

Such a cute historical hotel and breakfast is amazing!

We loved staying in the very clean, neat and updated historic hotel - a wonderful experience. The cooked to order breakfast was fantastic as well and great coffee. The farm fresh vegetables, fresh spices grown on site, and the slow, long cooked corned beef were terrific! The staff was so friendly and helpful with any questions or requests. Thank you all! We will definitely be back for more visits!

Beautifully renovated old hotel, sparkling clean and the breakfast was amazing. It was more than I expected.

Friendly and accommodating staff, immaculate clean, unbeatable breakfast! Highly recommend!

The breakfast is excellent. It's not the ocean view.

The staff was especially helpful on our visit going above and beyond the call of duty and with a smile! The breakfast is awesome and unequaled by other hotels...made to order omelets, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit and so much more.

This is a beautiful property with an amazing history. It is very well kept, and was sparkling clean. The breakfasts and staff are amazing. We'll definitely be back!

Chris, thank you for staying with us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the "vintage" feel of Crystal Bay Hotel. On a historic note, this hotel was actually waterfront property when it was built in 1915. The causeway out to Treasure Island came later, and of course, an increase in traffic during the busy season.
