This motel offers studio apartments which they call efficiency rooms. Unlike some branded chain of hotels, this hotel offers a tall refrigerator with separate freezer section. There is no breakfast served, but have many restaurants and diners near by. Around 500 feet to the board walk. I wish it had a toaster and a coffee maker. Over all we were...

My overall experience at the motel was fine, except for the parking. The main lot is way too small, which in turn, if you are not lucky enough to get the first lot, then you are assigned the second lot which is 2 blocks away, which lucky me I had to use this lot, I know it is expected to...

Perfect find for summer getaway! The beds were comfortable, fridge cold, stove top and microwave if neded, and great water pressure of shower. Super close the beach and a decent walk to Fractured Prune for breakfast. Parking lot is super tight, so be prepared. Sure it is not a 5-star hotel, but if you are going to the beach it...

My significant other and I were very disappointed with our room at Crystal Sands. We were mislead on the type of room. We were suppose to have a room with a kitchenette but that was not so. Instead we had this little hole in the wall, no kitchenette. The room was damp. Our swim suits and towels wouldn't even dry....

Rooms are a little outdated, but clean & quiet. If you're only looking for a place to sleep, this is perfect. My family of four stayed in a room with two double beds and a pull-out sofa bed comfortably. There are plenty of places around to get breakfast, and it's very close (1 block walk) to the boardwalk and beach....

Give this hotel a try! Our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable. They let us use a small bathroom to change clothes in to go down to the beach until our room was ready. Room was ready early and they allowed us to check in early and park our vehicle there as well! The location is terrific too!...

Another great bike week in the history book.
