We expected the stay at Crane Creek Inn to be nice after studying its website, but our experience exceeded our expectations. Indeed, we found it to be one of the more comfortable and accommodating inns Iwehave had the pleasure to stay at and we prefer the warm ambience and friendless normally associate with B&Bs .

Crane Creek is a historical home which has been converted to a bed and breakfast. The innkeeper-cook is Andy Durik, a very outgoing transplant from Ohio. The Inn sits on Crane Creek, a tributary off of the Indian River. It is full of wild life....manatees, dolphin and all kinds of birds. On our last visit we even saw an eagle... More

What an awesome time! I can't say enough about the genuine hospitality of Andi and Bambi. The bed and breakfast is located in downtown Melbourne along a river front and within close proximity to the beaches. The place is very relaxing--swim in the pool, soak in the jacuzzi, or just hang out and stare at the fish jumping in the... More

Comfortable room. Great breakfast options. We really enjoyed the view of the river while relaxing out back outside our room, the Melbourne Room. The outdoor furniture and porch provided a great place to enjoy some wine and conversation. Looking for a reason to return.

This is a charming and very clean bed and breakfast. The owners are so nice and never make you feel awkward being a guest. The downtown shops are easily within walking distance so you can park your car for the duration and really relax. We definitely will return for a longer stay! You come as strangers and leave as friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Crane Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast is the Melbourne area's only true waterfront boutique Bed & Breakfast, and the only B&B with a heated, full size swimming pool. We are located directly on the water and an easy 1 block stroll to Historic Downtown Melbourne.Why drive to dinner and/or drinks? At Crane Creek Inn you can walk to over 10 fine dining and casual restaurants, and over 8 relaxing and fun bars/clubs - most with live music. Our beautiful, tree-lined Downtown also has four blocks of unique shops and boutiques; from Antiques to Fine Art, Women's clothing, jewelry and more.Our Guests are awestruck by our beautiful grounds, and the serene pleasure of observing the manatees, bottlenose dolphin, alligators, and over 50 species of birds from our waterfront boardwalk while enjoying a complementary beverage (adult or otherwise). Bring your kayak or have one delivered for a truly unforgettable experience on the water.We offer our Guests an abundance of amenities. Our Guest rooms, each uniquely decorated with a tropical, Key West flair, all have private entrances and private baths. Luxurious 700 thread count linens on our Queen and King beds and top of the line soaps, shampoo and conditioners. Most rooms have a private deck or patio with very comfortable furniture for breakfast dining or just relaxing with a good book.
