Crystal Bay was absolutely wonderful. Every single one of the staff members was beyond helpful and friendly. Facility was beyond clean, breakfast was excellent, beds and pillows were so comfortable we had to ask if we could buy pillows to bring home! Thank you so much for meeting our expectations. We will definitely stay here again!

Liked the historical building. The banana nut bread was delicious.

I absolutely love that it’s a historical landmark. It’s well maintained. Love the old fashioned, antique vibe of this hotel. The service was great! And the room was spotless clean. Will definitely be staying again.😃

Everything, including breakfast, was very nice. Loved the Sun setting between the palm trees

I loved the cute little breakfast And I hope it was very clean and cozy. I love the old he’ll as well

Beautifully restored and maintained hotel with charm, character and comfort all packaged at a very competitive price...room service breakfast a very nice touch!

I love this place is nice,safe,comfortable, clean and super close to the beach in car

Spotlessly clean, impeccably well kept and a wonderful staff. Close to the beach without the noise. Plenty to do nearby.

It was a beautiful property in an historic location. The rooms felt more cozy and Inviting than a normal major hotel chain ex: Howard Johnson etc. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet.

Amazing breakfast!! One of the best I've had at any hotel. Rooms also very comfy and clean. Hotel has a really cool, "vintage " feel to it. Only drawback is not much to do in immediate area (most restaurants/shopping require driving which I didn't like as much) and hotel situated on intersection of two very busy streets (Central and Park St.).

A luxurious step back in time. Very clean, helpfui and courteous staff

Such a cute historical hotel and breakfast is amazing!

We loved staying in the very clean, neat and updated historic hotel - a wonderful experience. The cooked to order breakfast was fantastic as well and great coffee. The farm fresh vegetables, fresh spices grown on site, and the slow, long cooked corned beef were terrific! The staff was so friendly and helpful with any questions or requests. Thank you all! We will definitely be back for more visits!

Beautifully renovated old hotel, sparkling clean and the breakfast was amazing. It was more than I expected.
