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

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SmithsIntl Dissapointed as a Platinum guest
The inside of the hotel was recently renovated and has a wonderful atmosphere and charm to it, but that is where any charm ended. We were visiting our daughter at Fla Tech and a cold front had come through the area so the hotel was visibly slow. As Royal Ambassador Platinum members we enjoy an upgrade to a suite when available, but know that with IHG they only offer a one level upgrade . The upgrade we were offered had a small balcony facing another building but with a sliver of ocean view off to the side. The room was clean and recently renovated but small. With the hotel being so empty we asked if a suite upgrade was possible as we would be in the room working quite a bit over the next few days, but were told it was not an option as a platinum upgrade...only for another 100 dollars per night.
The bartender on the first night made an amazing margarita but the following day they were completely different made by 2 other bartenders. Each bartender seems to have their own recipe. The dinner pork chops were good and the lunch crab cake BLT was excellent but the wings at the bar were overcooked and the smoked fish dip tasted like it was scooped from a tub of premade dip.
Overall the stay was average.... very bland just like the fish dip. We won't be staying again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nika00 Gorgeous, Newly Renovated, Excellent Staff..Divine Cuisine
It was an absolute joy to stay here. I was extremely shocked by the consideration from all staff, everyone was so attentive and made my stay that much more enjoyable. The food preparation was divine, I am a foodie and look at each detail and they hit it on every mark. The Chef is a fabulous man, i was able to meet him a few times as he came out to see how we had enjoyed the food. None of it was over bearing, just enough genuine consideration that made the trip extra special. Everyone who i ran into was enjoying there stay just as much. As for the room, all the convince, large refrigerator, and large spacious room. I slept well in the comfortable bed/sheets. I can't wait to come back to town and stay here again. The location is prime!! gorgeous beaches and just the same for the view from the room. Your centrally located between Eau Gallie and 192. I love this area! Thank you to all who made my stay one to remember.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dlight Great room
I had placed a special request when reservation was made, to be as close as possible to my children and grandchildren, and I gave the name. Upon arriving I asked at the desk, again, if I was close to them? I was told yes, they had the request. My room was as far removed from them as it could get....another building...had to go walk on outside around building, take elevator down to first floor(or walk the stairs), over to main building and get an elevatotor in that building and go up. That is nearby??? I could not have been any farther away!!!! No one even acknowledged at check in that it was not close, or they could not accommodate my request.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petrollaw Awesome staff and accomodations
I have been staying here for 13 years, awesome staff, disappointed with restaurant quality, it deteriorated significantly, signature seafood chowder watered down with less ingredients, menu selection used to have delicious variety including creme brule, no more, additionally IGH rewards club promoted but restaurant is not even in the IGH dining rewards network, what's up with that????
New years party was okay but given jazz night band variety, for new years they could have had an even better band, food quality was okay but was probably catered out based on the number of guests but food used to be better when prepared by hotel staff in the past.
Other than that, it was a great room upgrade and a good time.

The package deal was perfectly priced, much better priced than 2012, wish it came with breakfast. However I do have2 or 3 complaints we didnt like... the dance floor was way too small for all those people, couldnt even get out there. The dinner could have been better, meaning.. the salad wasnt good.. spinach leaves.. thats it, but its just salad I guess.... and main course ( prime rib), smallest Ive seen and thin, needs to be thicker. Also the Bar, if its a cash bar, which this was, need to have more top shelf, I drink rum and there was NO Captain Morgan !!! the spiced rum you had doesnt even come close!!! and you charge more for that than what I pay for Cap't Morgan !!!

The food served was average but would have been probably better if it was served hot. The Ballroom was very crowded, but bearable. The music was provided by a band that had knew one type of music, I guess . It would have been nicer if the Band had, or played a wider variety of music.
The event OrganIzer should decide what age group the party is going to be tailored too, or make pleasureable for a larger age group.
The wide screen TV was a very nice touch.

My boyfriend and I spent New Year's Eve here and it was amazing. Even with a booked hotel it was quiet and peaceful, we never would have known it was that busy. The breakfast buffet was excellent the fruit was fresh and perfectly cut. He was able to walk right down to the beach and do some morning fishing while I slept in the comfy king sized bed. The spa was slightly over prices but worth every penny. I have never been so relaxed. The staff was very kind and helpful. Overall an amazing stay and I would recommend to anyone looking for a night on the beach.
