    Would stay here again
    This was just a quick spur of the moment overnight trip for me. Check in was was quick and easy. The rate was very reasonable. The room was spacious, comfy and clean. The only drawback...I could figure out how to adjust the thermostat and it got a bit chilly.

    You can do better, but this is not bad.
    This hotel is in need of serious renovations. The hallways feels cramped and the entrance to the room is not well lit. The room itself is spacious enough. Bed comfort is not terrible but not great. Bathroom cleanliness was acceptable. The main selling point of this hotel is that it’s right on the beach. My room had a patio with direct beachfront views which was the best part. Their restaurant had good food, price was reasonable. Service can be hit or miss. On one occasion I waited over 30 minutes for any service. Lastly, their Covid precautions overall are poorly followed. Most staff did wear masks but compliance with guests was rarely enforced. I came out here by myself on my weekend off for some me time, but I suppose most people coming to the beach don’t really care about the pandemic. Overall, I recommend booking this place in advance and during the week as the value for you money will be much better that way.

    Crystal Beach OCMD 2020
    Very impressed with this property and rooms. There are so many options and hard to judge which would be a bad one. Defenitly lucked out at the Crystal Beach. We had a partial ocean view and it was actually a pleasant view, everything was extremely clean. Food and beverage opinions right outside your room. Nice pool. Directly on the beach. Only negative for me was the beds could have been a little more comfortable.

    Very noisy at night with people on their balconies. The walls are paper thin, woke up early due to another room next door fighting and we could hear everything.

    Quick OC Getaway
    Condition of the room was fine, it was nice to have more space & slight view of the beach. Bathroom water pressure was not so great, and the temperature didn’t get hot, almost lukewarm. We liked how close it was to the beach, it’s about 1 mile to get to any boardwalk stores/food shops. Liked how close it was to breakfast restaurants- Omega & Happy Jack. There is also a bar at the pool which was a saving grace when one of the days was super windy and the waves were too much to handle! Small pool, but bar staff was great too!

    We'll Stay Again!
    The room was amazingly spacious and we LOVED our bathroom. The shower had a little mold growing, which really need mold cleaner and that'll knock that right out. The bed was super comfortable and the hotel was quiet. Minutes from the glorious sand and ocean. 😁

    Quick OC trip
    Last minute plans to stay in OC. Hotel was nice. I was underwhelmed with check in area, but otherwise, it was good. Plenty of space, clean room, comfortable beds. Only negative was very thin towels. Bar/restaurant by pool was nice. All staff was helpful and friendly. Most people wore masks, but it didn’t appear to be enforced.
