This place is a gem ! Don't be deceived by it being an older shore motel ( which it is) But they make up for it with location and friendly and caring staff Tina at the front desk was so great and and Chuck keeps the swimming pool immaculate and he is super nice. Great inexpensive short stay place

The beds I had in my many different rooms were comfortable. Both the heating and the air conditioning were fine in season. The pool is a...

The Crytal Inn was great. Me and my friends had a great time, the pool was clean, the service was good, the rooms were clean, we liked the free coffee in the morning, and Tina at the front deck was awesome! I would recommend this place highly for future visitors making their pit stop to the jersey shore like we...

The oversized pool is immaculate and refreshing. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the rates are reasonable. Staff goes above and beyond to please their guests. Be sure to book your stay with Tina and look for Chuck at poolside.

Clerk was extrememly rude and completely unaccommodating. My husband and I went into the room and notice the bedding consists of 2 sheets and one very thin supposed to be white blanket, which has stains all over it, my husband goes and asks for an additional blanket and was told to turn up the heat.

Dear Guest, I am very upset that you were treated this way by someone on our staff. I would like you to know that rude service is not the norm at the Crystal Inn, in fact, you may see from other customer reviews that we strive to give superior service to our guests.

We found the Crystal Inn was near to local beaches and a pleasant place to stay. I had an issue with the tv and Tina the Front Desk Agent came to the room and fixed the problem immediately. Friendly staff, close to beaches, i would recommend them.

Very low budget "motel" but pricey - no hair dryer or coffee pot, wall outlets did not work, hangers in closet were broken, curtains were torn, ice machine/laundry room was flooded, another hotel guest kept walking around outside without a shirt on and needless to say this was very disturbing. Was visiting our daughter at Monmouth College and decided she...
