Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kismet203 Wonderful place for my family
I took my two small boys and everyone there made me feel comfortable about having them in a resort so nice. We felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay here better than any other place ever! Would HIGHLY recommend for just adults or a family!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BeachJ Great room and view, very loud and too many smokers
I would have loved our stay if it wasn't so loud, crowded and smoke-filled. Our great, 2 room king suite had a wonderful view, but was directly above the band and pool. A group partied loudly under our room around the fire pit until after 3 am. We were in the smaller building and all the side balconies are part of the open walkway. We had to walk by people smoking and ashtrays full of lit cigarettes. The pool was the same…it seemed like 1/3 of the people were smoking. There was no where you could avoid it except your room, with the doors closed. The restaurant service was really awful. The view was amazing and the food was good, but our dinner waiter and our breakfast waitress each took 10 min to get to us, messed up our orders, etc. It was almost funny how bad it was.
If our room was away from the noise, and the smoking wasn't allowed in common areas, I would have enjoyed our stay more. The wait staff was awful, but the view makes up for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Staff
The staff was friendly enough but when I checked in, which was very quick, they did not tell me they upgraded me to a partial ocean view instead of the double beds I paid for. The did give us a pull out bed which worked out fine but they should have mentioned it. I called the front desk and that is when they asked us if that was ok.

The staff are very welcoming, friendly, and out going to ensure your stay is great. The hotel is always clean and the rooms are clean and fresh. The bar and resturant have plenty of options and the prices are good for the location. The access to the beach could not be any better. Wonderful place to visit for a night or an extended time.

I was pretty upset when my wife and I couldnt go into the spa or poolat the hotel. The spa was fulled with foam and the pool wasnt backwashed. The spa has foam because it never was cleaned the next day. Im a llicensed pool operator and know whats a dirty pool orspa. The breakfest was suppose to be added with the hotel price and I ended up paying $43.00 for breakfast. People were rude except for the front desk ladies. Tried asking a guy for information on a local store and said "what do you need im really busy" ..
well, again the room was nice and front desk ladies bit other than that not a great first time experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by somedaze Great View...many issues with room & staff
Had Ocean Front room for 3 nights...Beautiful location & View!
No discounts given for ocean front rooms...no aarp, no priority club, no AAA, nothing. Room had many issues and supposedly newly renovated.
Shower leaked all over when trying to get water to correct temp,....reported it...nothing done.
Toilet was broken and ran for 10 hours...told maid, then called front desk 2 hours later..after two visits was fixed.
Someone something (maid cart?) was banging on the wall for 2 full days....finally stopped.
Elevator was broken...had to go to other side of hotel to get luggage down stairs..
We were told free coffee 24/7. Went down at 9:10 AM to get coffee, was told by the staff that free coffee ended at 9am and they would get us a cup only if we paid for it.
Had a five dollar credit for any in room movie (No credit was given and when asked, staff said it had to be 2 in room movies for the credit...no where on the tv screen did it say this.
Moths were everywhere in our room...had to keep all lights off to avoid.
Overall...spent a lot of money...had many issues...when we inquired about them...no one was helpful. And all it would have taken is some kindness such as letting us get coffee in the morning....we purchased a breakfast one day and dinner for 4 people another day....so it wasn't like we didn't spend money on food & drinks!!!
we waited 20 minutes for elevator to take luggage down with no notice that it was broken...reported it to staff who said...its broken take a different elevator!
....Very disappointed. Will not stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ARJ77 Nice Hotel
The front desk and dining staff are very friendly and accommodating. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired. My floor was not vacuumed and my tub was not cleaned daily. Also, the light bulb in my floor lamp was blown and the door to my freeze fell off every time the door to the refrigerator was opened. The side of the building I was on did not offer a private balcony which was a disappointment but a table and 2 chairs were provided for each room on the common walk way. Very few rooms offer a true ocean view so do not be mislead. Most rooms you had to lean over the edge to get a nice view. I was in room 353 and you had one of the better views but again it was not private. I enjoyed this hotel enough to be returning in a few weeks for a 10 day stay but hopefully on a higher floor with a better view since I'll be there for so long. I don't think you would be disappointed with your stay here as long as you know what to expect.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PeterboroPete Beds are horrible. Two people cannot sleep in same bed.
Upon check in I knew something was up. I booked 3 rooms for my family for our vacation to Florida. After waiting for several minutes at the front desk we were greeted and the gentleman was scanning the computer for a bit for our room assignments which were not ready, rooms were booked on the first. Waited several more minutes to get them. I asked if there was adjoining rooms, told there were non in hotel. Well we have one!
Got to our rooms and they smell like a damp old basement. Son said look how small the beds are, smaller than mine! Fridge in my room was dead and the second room not plugged in. Maintenance changed the one fridge, I plugged in the other. Maintenance was very good as was most of the staff.
Now to the worst part. The bed is so soft it hurts to lay on, it has a topper on top of the mattress that is beyond horrible. I would ask for another room but my 81 year old father in-law is in the adjoining room so I cannot leave. I slept on the floor in son's Scouting sleeping bag because the bed was just to uncomfortable. The floor was better.
The second night my son sleep on the floor, my wife and I slept apart in the 2 beds, nice! Maintenance put a 2 foot by 4 foot wood plank under the mattress to firm it up. Still don't understand that???
This is the second major issue I have had at a Crown Plaza.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJReviews What a nice place to stay.
We chose to roam around Florida this year. Melbourne was our first stop. We are utilizing our points so the room was all off of points. We arrived to find a sold out hotel, and were told that we were upgraded to a ocean front room with a balcony. WOW, when I booked I didn't even realize it was on the ocean. This was great bonus. The beach had great waves to body surf on or as other talented folks did, long board on. The beach is clean, and you can walk forever. We ordered breakfast as room service, a bit pricey but nice to eat on the balcony while the sun came up. Plenty of local stores and restaurants in the area. We did have a car, so a trip out was easy. All of the staff were great. Even all of the guests we met were nice. Can't beat that.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TreeHugger Housekeeping, etc.
My wife and I came to Melbourne for a few days to escape the Pennsylvania snow. We greatly enjoyed our Crown Plaza experience, especially: the friendliness and efficiency of the housekeeping staff, the veggie wrap in the Plaza's restaurant, the table and chairs on the second floor at which we could sit just outside our room and enjoy the weather and the pool crowd, the patio for an outdoor breakfast, the breakfast itself, the cleanliness of the beach at the site, and the pedestrian bridge to cross Route AIA. One criticism: the condition of the front door of our room, which closed erratically. Since we were without a car, it was a bit of a hike to other restaurants and other services, but we are still mobile and enjoyed the walk.

Oasis in Melbourne. Great hotel and nice renovated rooms. Restaurant and bar prices a bit high but overall great hotel. Bartender was not as friendly and didn't greet us with a friendly attitude and seemed annoyed to have to serve us. Disappointed in the bar service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by M143 Too many things went wrong
4 months prior, I made a reservation for 2 in a king bed. My friends were getting married there & a few days prior another person would be staying. I called & asked if they had a double bed available. They did & made the arrangements. When we got there we were highly dissatisfied to find out they placed us, right outside the elevator. I feel as a courtesy, they should have let us know where the room was located so we could make a better decision as to whether we still wanted to change rooms or not. Because of the elevator volume it was constantly loud & sleep was minimal. We also had stains on two different pillows. Luckily, half way through the wedding I went back to the room to freshen up because the toilet was overflowing. I let the front desk know & it was addressed & fixed immediately. The front desk associate did ask how my visit was & refunded a small portion of our room cost back to us. We are locals of the area & chose to stay because of the hotels reputation. Looking back, we wish we would have just drove home & saved the expense & gained more rest & relaxation. Overall, it was the worst night sleep I've had at a hotel & for a popular beachside hotel I truly expected more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GTampa Overall good except maids
My fiancé and myself stayed for two nights and on the second day we had one very unusual occurrence. We were on the balcony having a drink, watching the waves and overall just relaxing when we heard our door slam shut. We went into our room and realized that the cleaning staff had to come into our room and made the bed without letting us know that they were even in there. I was bothered very much that they most certainly saw us or heard us on the balcony but didn't let us know that they were in the room. Also, since they were in there all they did was make the bed, no new sheets and no trash taken out either but more importantly that we did not even know they were in our room

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pro Tow Mike Geat view, comfortable bed, quiet with the sound of the ocean
Great place to go unwind for a few days. As a Platinum Elite Ihg rewards member we were very impressed. Newly Renovated, Nice Spa with a great massage. My fiancé and I went down for valentine's day extended weekend for 4 nights. We enjoyed it so much we added another night and put everything on hold for one more day. You get a lot more than what you pay for there. Nice bar an restaurant, the bartender staff was not the best though they were "busy" the night before. A lot of good local places to go to though everything was at least a few minutes away making it a peaceful getaway. They offered us a free room upgrade and IHG Platinum Elite 10% off everything they have there food, spa, etc..We cant wait to go back!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BH123 Average hotel with a beautiful view.
Nice room, especially the ocean view. Comfortable bed. However, things are peeling and the hallways need a paint job. So does the balcony and the chairs, etc., small bathroom and narrow hallways. No comparison to other hotels at the same price, for the same room, in the same location.
Staff were very nice, and good location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annie010101 Excellent Wedding Weekend!
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in February for our friends wedding. I can not say enough nice things about the hotel & staff. While the wedding was not at the hotel the rehearsal dinner was and many of the pre/post wedding gatherings were there. The weather was not the best that weekend but we still had a blast and the pool area was great and the water was warm enough to swim. There were some fun places to go that were nearby to enjoy some live music (Lou's Blues.) We ate at Marisol for breakfast and the beach bar for dinner, drinks and food were great! Overall great stay from the shuttle driver, front desk staff and restaurant staff you all did an amazing job. Thank you for a nice stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jerilyn in Miami Comfortable and Clean but A/C very noisy.....minimal sleep
Just stayed one short quick night. Was in town for a venue for my children. The room was nicely appointed and clean but the Air
conditioner was extremely noisy. I spoke to other guests and theirs was the same.
I made a report with the front desk and they apologized.
The beachfront was beautiful although didn't have time to enjoy it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bammers Great location
The hotel was very clean and tidy, the lobby, bar and dining area spacious if a little clinical. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was upgraded to a small suite which was very well equipped, my only issue was a rather noisy fridge.
Another point, the hotel only offers pre booked breakfast for two people, as a business traveller this was rather annoying

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by herqguy overall nice but elevator motors
I have stayed at this hotel many times and for the first time had an issue with noise. My room was located on the top floor (608 I beleive). In the evening when I went to bed there was the most horrible vibrating and buzzing noise coming from above as if someone was drilling into a concrete slab. I called the front desk to then have someone knock on my door at 10:30pm to tell me it was the elevator motors on the rood. I had meetings the next morning and ended up laying in bed for almost 3 hours listening to this before taking a sleeping aid to crash.
I was offered to move however at 1030 and already in bed I wasnt in the mood to change.
Someone should look at insulating or putting rubber floor and footings onto the elevator motors. Very annoying
