Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Service needs help.
I had stated there for a conference class and the service that I received in the dinning room was very poor. I literally had wait for a long time for a waitress when I was there to have breakfast and dinner. Needs improvement in this area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Orlando Magic A little tight
The room's view was excellent.. We had the oceanfront/balcony room. The only issue is the room is very small. We had a party of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids#. The beds said queen but they were more like a full sized bed. The door to get in is very heavy and is located awkwardly which made for a struggle to get in and out. For the size of the hotel, the pool and jacuzzi are very small. We were there for 2 days and only were able to use the pool once for about 20 mintues. There was a mass of people in the pool and some even using the side of the pool for their drinks and lunch..We were very disappointed in this. The pool was packed ALL DAY LONG.. The cleaning crew and front desk staff were very friendly. Just to note, they will charge the card you reserved with the day of the stay #before you get there). I enjoyed just the oceanfront and short walk to the beach plus it was not crowded. Crowne should consider adding another pool and larger jacuzzi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheFunnyDanes Excellent service, great food and fantastic view from balcony
Spend 1 night here with my family - wished we had had time to stay longer.
Dinner at night was fantastic - great value for money.
The inside breakfast area is small - not too clean - but the outside porch is huge with lots of seating opportunities and it faces the beach.
Rooms were excellent - especially the view from the huge balcony facing both the beach and the side of the hotel.
Will definitely stay here again, if I am back in the area.

No perks for platinum members other than free coffee...every hotel I have ever stayed in gives you at least that. Waitress was very inattentive and slow. She never came to our table to see if we were ok and our bill was incorrect.

It is so nice to be treated like they were there to make your day special. We checked in at 12:30 and our room was all ready for us. We had the beach package and we were given the option as to which day we wanted out beach chairs & umbrella set up on the beach. Then one of the best parts was the table service that was given to us while we were on the beach. It was my husbands birthday so that was so special for him and our guests that came over from Orlando to join us. We had Lunch on the Deck which overlooks the beach which is so relaxing we spent a good part of the night there listening to the music. Everyone was so accommodating which makes the whole experience one we are looking forward to again soon.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma to Rain Don't stay in room 450
The room was not nearly as big or as quiet as
my daughter's room (456). The end rooms
should NOT be used as guest rooms.
1st floor was a maintenance room.
I made reservations well in advance of our
stay,and felt that I was given last possible
I asked for adjoining rooms. I reallize that
is not always possible, but feel that the rooms
should at LEAST be comparable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dr. Dave BBQs July 2014 Trip to Melbourne
Overall this stay was quite comfortable. The room was is excellent shape and the maid service was spot on.
The front desk personnel had something to be desired. The man who checked me in said they had my room all ready, and then he gave me room 252 (2nd floor behind the elevator). "All ready for me"! Don't they like me?
I travel to this hotel once per month. I spend easily over $150 in the bar and restaurant, and I get a room on the 2nd floor behind the elevator. Mentioning that I was an IHG Rewards club member didn't improve things, that's for certain.
I sit out on the deck for cocktails each time I am a guest. I usually have to go and find a server. Getting drinks and replacement drinks is a challenge. If it weren't for the ambiance of the deck, I would not patronize the bar. Also, when I do get a server, they are so concentrated on selling the restaurant items that they do not concentrate on getting drinks correctly done, and it is obvious that non-restaurant ordering tables are not a priority for them. This is not a complaint of individual servers. It is a complaint of the systemic server culture at the hotel.
Speaking of the bar, I have to yell! The acoustics are terrible! There should be some noise dampening technologies one could apply so one could hear oneself think.
All that said, I will return next month. I like the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LizaSue Love this Hotel
The location is great and the grounds, rooms and hotel itself are clean and well kept. We love the bar and outside restaurant area - wonderful view. Also we ate several meals at the hotel and the food was very good. We experienced great service from a number of the staff. First, we had an issue with the toilet when we first arrived. Lee and Bob of the Maintenance Staff took care of it quickly and professionally even though it was getting into the evening time. We had no further issues at all. Also we received excellent service at the bar. Ian and 3 bartenders all named Katie kept us coming back and enjoying the bar every night of the trip. Finally, the bell service was quick, friendly and professional thanks to Sean and another gentleman whose name unfortunately I did not get. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful time. We love this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MzMiMi Beach is greatest amenity
The staff, specifically Rachel, was exceptionally helpful and friendly. I had a bunch of questions for her upon my arrival and she was knowledgeable & courteous. The extremely convenient access to the beach was nice. In conjunction with how beautiful the beach is, is what offered me solace during my stay. Further, my standard king room was disappointing. It did not give me the four stars feel especially for the price. The room needed to be updated. It was mediocre. The bathroom was really small and did not have a vent. Also, the bathtub handle was broken, which allowed the water to drip. A bonus to my room was the balcony that overlooked the pool.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Allison M Rude employees and very noisy stay
I stayed at this hotel the weekend of the 4th of July as my brother was having his wedding here. The hotel failed miserable with the wedding accommodations, but that is another story. I booked a room through a room block that my brother and his wife had set up as part of their wedding accommodations. We arrived at the hotel early, about 11:00 am, and tried to check in early but no rooms were available yet. I was told that they would preregister us and give us a phone call when a room was ready. We never received a phone call that a room was ready and later showed up after check in to obtain the room. I don't understand the point of the preregistration if they weren't going to even call with an available room. I have a hard time believing that not a single room had become available between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Also, myself and others who were staying at the hotel and booked under the room block felt like the hotel guest looked down upon us since we essentially got a cheaper rate. It seems like the employees were really lacking in hospitality and were some what rude. The room itself was nice and comfortable but it became very hard to sleep when we were woken up at 12:30 am by drunk and loud people at the pool. We waited it out for about an hour thinking that the pool had to be closing soon since it was so late. Since the noise never stopped we called down to the front desk to ask when the pool officially closed. I was told that the pool was technically closed but that its kind of an unspoken rule they let people stay in it as long as they want and aren't bothering other guest. I explained that it was very loud and was keeping us awake. The employee told me they would clear the pool out and close it. Why even have pool hours though if your not going to abide by them? It was extremely difficult to get a good nights rest when the hotel is some what encouraging guest to stay up until all hours of the night being loud. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone because I simply felt like it was lacking big time in hospitality and customer service.

We stayed for 4 nights while on the east coast of Florida. The location was perfect and there was nothing, absolutely nothing, which was not just fantastic with the hotel.
Compared to the next two nights over on the west coast it is just a no brainer to return here in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 4 day weekend not up to crown standards
Where to begin....this place caters to weddings and locals...if you think you r going to hang at the pool all day...Beep wrong answer...locals park in the north parking lot , they come in bunches and they come early..beach is nice..food was above average...wait staff hit or miss especially if there were locals around they knew...Felt as if I couldn't leave in my car because I would have to park in lot across the street and get caught in a thunderstorm which we had every evening..Rooms were a little dated for a crown..front desk staff hit or miss...
Simple fix for management...key code access to the pool and north parking lot needs to be for hotel guests only and inforce it...
Every hotel I have stayed in on the water has parking for hotel guest only.

Spent my 4th of July in a room that the sink was broken and was not fixed. The shower was broken also. The bath tub was full of water that I had to drain.. At no time was I compensated or asked if I would like to move to another room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jun73 Great location and good amenities
Just a few meters away from a surfing beach with good amenities are one of the great things I enjoyed during my stay here. Bed was comfortable and the room clean as well. Staff are friendly and accommodating too. Good place to stay for both business and leisure!
My single complain is the dresser drawer. If you accidentally pull the drawer hard enough, it doesn't have a stop on it so it can land on your feet and crunch your toes like what happened in my case. Was a really painful day for me that time and now I have a dying toe nail =( The hotel should fix this for the next guests!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Family Wedding A number of positives but some big negatives
The Crown Plaza is a great location with a very reasonable room rate, the front desk is friendly, housekeeping was extremely helpful and both the beach and pool are very nice. Those are the positive attributes. The negatives are small rooms and even smaller baths. Nothing in the bath works totally correct; water could only enter the tub through the shower fixture and the stopper in the sink was missing, the toilet would flush if one was persistent. Parking was a major problem! The hotel host events that require parking for local visitors thus leaving hotel guest with the need to park in the lot across the highway and use the pedestrian walk over to cross the highway. This required climbing 2 flights of stairs and descending 2 flights on the opposite side of the road. If a guest has luggage or children, as most do, this is not a pleasant experience. Food in the restaurant was very good and the prices very reasonable but the service was awful.

Loved the beach location, loved the outdoor dining. It was fun having a band to entertain us during dinner. Pool was very nice, it was great that it was deeper than 5 feet. Shuttle service was very helpful, and the drivers were most helpful and friendly. I would certainly visit this hotel and the Melbourne area again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Decreased service
The restaurant at this facility is fantastic. I have stayed here many times while being gold and platnum member and have been upgraded to beach front and even beach front suite on previous stays. I understand I was there a longer period and did not expect beach front the entire time; however, it was never offered even when I had issues with the phone. The bathroom toilet did not operate correctly and the air conditioner was extremely loud. I do not feel they have put any attention to the rooms; however they are alwasy updating the event areas. I am also always greeted by curteous individuals offering to assist with my luggage. I had to go and ask for a luggage cart and never saw anyone giving assistance. I felt the individual service has drastically decreased at this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by V6262 Great staff
I wanted to share my most recent experience at your hotel. This could have turned out much differently and was a very positive experience because of the staff. I had booked an ocean view room. When I checked in and got to my room I found that I was on the second floor overlooking a courtyard where there was a large group playing corn hole and drinking. (I have no issue with folks having a good time but my view was not what I had bargained for and was extremely noisy.) I went to the front desk to see what options I had. There were no available ocean view rooms so I was given a key to check another room. I was going to also now need a rollaway to accommodate my family but I figured it was worth checking out. Turns out the room was nice, still had a partial ocean view and accommodated the rollaway pretty easily. We switched rooms and also received a $10/night room credit and no charge for the rollaway.
The second night we had yet another issue. At 1:30 a.m. there was someone outside making a lot of noise, waking up both me and my son (and we were on the top floor!) I called the desk and was assured that it would be handled within 10 minutes and it was.
I stay at another Crowne Plaza location regularly on business. The reason I go back there so consistently is the service I receive. I will have to say that the service at your hotel would absolutely have me return as well. It was extremely positive and I wanted to make sure you were aware. (The only thing that would have made our trip better is if the weather had cooperated!)
Thanks again for the hospitality and making this a fun trip for my children.
