The only positive about the hotel was the staff. Friendly, always said hello when passing, & glad to help. The hotel was in desperate need of updating and it made it appear it was very dirty. I was super excited about the restaurant overlooking the pool and ocean but the hamburger meat was gray and that set the mood for...

So, if you like hearing maintenance work until 930 at night and hotel workers yelling and nearly fighting outside of your door, then this is the place for you. I called about the late night maintenance and was told to deal with it. You can bet I won't be staying here again. Lazy river and water park is good.

I was very skeptical about staying on the southside, but everything about my stay was pleasant. Starting with the check in-check out plus the rooms with the amenities and the activities. If you looking for a clean kid friendly resort, Crown reef is it.

The wife and I went down for bike week. Our first room was above construction (saws and hammers going early) and a green pool. At my wife's request we got moved to the first tower with a more quiet and delightful room. We were given a complimentary card for our troubles so they done well at making sure we were...

djc02, Thank you so much for your comments and feedback. We are pleased to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your stay. You are correct, certain times of the year are busier than others.

The hotel is older and needs a face lift. We had a queen suite which consisted of a bedroom/narrow kitchen/small bathroom/room with a murphy bed and pull out couch. I wish I could say I loved the room, but I didn't. The room was painted in a dreary gray color and made the place feel dirty. The tile floors were...

Girls at check in were very helpful when I wanted to extend my stay for an extra day. I do not remember their names but they were working at 11am on Sunday, May 21,2017. The room was great and the grandkids loved the Lazy River & Water park. Loco restaurant was also very good:)

This beach front hotel consists of three separate towers. I had an Ocean Front Suite on the 5th Floor in Tower 1. Was there during 2017 Spring Bike Week. I found the room clean and comfortable.
