Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AaroTravel Beach & Go
We are beach people. So there's an automatic plus. The service will get you a key to your room, but that's it. The rooms do not have great views of the beach, only the suites facing the beach do. Even though they were less than have full, we were put in a side view room as close to the street as you could get. From the pool and the beach, I could tell the view didn't get much better. Who goes on vacation to sit in the room anyway? It would have been nice if they would have tried. We were flat out denied. My wife has been a travel agent for 17 years and we have stayed all over the world in the past 25 years. So I am saying from experience, we were lied to. That's not good customer service, but if you want to stay on the beach with a pool, bed, & bath, it still works fine. It’s run like a full service resort with no service.

I have stayed hear before and always enjoy the staff, location, and room. With the renovations completed about a year ago, the lobby, rooms, and common areas are even better. I look forward to staying here on my next visit to the Melbourne area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickSII Even better after the remodel
My wife and I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne-Oceanfront numerous times. This was our first stay since the remodel was complete. The hotel was already great, now it is awesome. Had drinks and appetizers on the deck - love the new furniture and got introduced to Dobel Tequila by Simon! Beautiful Hotel, highly recommend, had a great stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by casey46504 Not Set up to handle guest and events together.
During the stay there were several events going on at the hotel which made for a crowded situation. The dining room was closed off to guest leaving only the deck area to eat at which was accessed by walking through the swimming pool area, then walking through one of the events with those people looking at you like you were invading their territory. As their event continued on, they started expanding from their event area into the deck dining room area, again crowding out the guest staying at the hotel.
After dinner my wife and I wanted to walk the beach, however the only area to access the beach was right through the middle of one of the events, again with the people in that event giving us dirty look for walking through “their area.” Coming back into the lobby after our walk the lobby was extremely crowded and loud.
We left the property for a while, upon returning we found no parking spaces available on the north or south side of the hotel, but in turn had to park in the overflow area across the street. My opinion is that event parking should be across the street with guest parking in the adjoining parking lots to help with ease of carrying luggage, also considering at some point those for the event will be leaving that night and the group that was there when we were there were very loud when they left. Again parking across the street would help cut down on the noise level for those staying at the hotel. Leaving the next morning there were many parking slots open from the event people the night before again making it frustrating having to haul our luggage up the three flights of the bridge to get to our car in the overflow parking. Overall not a well thought-out way to integrate guest and special events, especially when you are taking away amenities such as the inside dining room from guest…

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEbm Great wedding
We picked the Crowne Plaza because they had a beautiful outside deck that rests delicately against the ocean. Our guests loved the view-even on a cloudy day.
The hotel has renovated the building and the new colors are bright, light and "happy." All rooms have a refrigerator and microwave, The ballrooms are also very modern.
At first, I hated the idea of a ballroom reception, but after viewing the Crowne, I loved the idea of the ceremony and cocktail party on the deck outside and then using the ballroom for the reception. It was a great change of scenery. I had 80 guests (all out of town) and had plenty of room for the cake, DJ, photo booth and dance floor in the smaller ballroom.
Lauren, the wedding coordinator and Allie, in guest services were wonderful. VERY organized and answered all my questions very quickly.The wedding packages are not only affordable, but all the packages offer tons of food. Lauren will work with whatever you want, so if you want to change the menu slightly, she will get it done. We had a few minor changes three days before our wedding and Lauren was right by our side to make sure everything was completed.
As I mentioned Allie, in guest services, she was a wonderful help with planning the guest rooms, gave us updated guest lists often and was extremely professional if any issues occurred (only one very minor room issue and the problem was quickly solved). I would also like to mention the Bartender that week (Arty, I believe) he bought my husband and I a round when we first arrived at the hotel.
The Hotel is located in a wonderful community. I was beyond happy having my wedding there, so were my guests. My guests flew from OH & WI and they had tons to do. they relaxed on the beach, took surf lessons, went to the Kennedy Space Center, went golfing, etc..

For an older hotel the property was in excellent shape. The only negative part of our stay was the fish chowder we ordered through room service.Talk about leaving a bad taste in your mouth!

My husband surprised me with a Staycation at this beautiful hotel in an oceanfront suite. (Room 575) It was GORGEOUS!! The views of the ocean and sunset were amazing. The staff and played along when I made reservations for brunch. See my husband also threw me a surprise party disguised as brunch at the hotel too! Everything was perfect! Staff was respectful, food and bloody mary bar were fantastic! I highly recommend the rooms at this hotel AND their onsite catering!!! The Crowne made my husband look awesome!!! :) And he really is just awesome.. :) Thank you everyone!!!
Also- get a rewards card if you don't already! It just makes sense.

Nice room and service. All staff was great. Room staff as well as dinning and front desk.
Only drawback is one night the winds were 40 MPH from the north and my north facing room was very noisy.
I would / will return to this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Califloridokie Repeat Customer, some caveats
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years.
It is a mostly pleasant, reasonably priced facility. My latest visit was marred only by the "breakfast buffet" experience, which was remarkable for the complete inattention of the service staff - we never got even a glass of water and I literally had to seek out someone to give me a check to pay, which by the way was $30+ for two. Not a bank-breaker but a little hefty for scrambled eggs and a muffin. (Prices were not posted anywhere obvious and we just dove in to the buffet when it became clear that no one was going to emerge reasonably promptly to ask us what we wanted to order; meanwhile we needed to eat-and-go in order to catch our plane.)
On the way out of the hotel I reported our experience to the desk clerk, whose indifference was plain, and certainly different than what I have experienced at the Crowne Plaza in the past.
Still, it's on the beach at Melbourne - clean, comfortable - and the staff are usually much better. That counts for a lot. I chalk it up to a bad customer-service day, and will in fact return.

We reserved the Ocean Package but the day we arrived it was extreemly windy...the front desk indicated to us that we could still have the package (sitting on beach with umbrella & drinks, two breakfasts) but that it probably wouldn't be very comfortable with the high winds. They offered us the regular room rate instead of the package. They also let us have late check out the next day since the winds had died down and we wanted to walk on the beach. We appreciated the advice and we saved $50.00. We still had a great stay and would definately stay there again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cor10ee Great time!
We were there for a wedding; the bridal suite was beautiful, clean and spacious. (I was the matron of honor.) My husband and daughter (who arrived a day later than me) were able to check in a little early. The wedding on the beach was spectacular - Lauren did a beautiful job! Food was great. Just wish we'd been able to spend a little more time at the hotel, and on the beach. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends or family visiting the area, and would stay again.

Toilets ran all night, mine and the one next door. So loud I couldn't sleep well.
The restaurant was sub-par. Menus where filty and the food was below average. Hard to understand, considering it wasn't crowded.
I would not choose to have dinner there again.

I love this Crown Plaza location. Third time I have stayed there in the last month. Ocean Front room had an incredible view.
I was there for the Tuesday night IHG club social. It is a very nice way to recognize we who stay at IHG properties all the time.
See you next week.

This hotel far exceeds the advertised views and special amenities. Even though we were not facing the ocean, we had a clear view of the beach, pool and back deck. The hot tub and deck shower were an added plus, too. It is also close to restaurants and the inland waterway.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting for pleasure or business.

Initially I was skeptical because there were a number of bad reviews about the rooms and elevator situation but I decided to take a chance. I am so happy that I did! I checked in late Sunday night went up to my room and pleased with what I saw. The layout of the room and not to mention the reason for coming to Melbourne....The sound of the waves crashing on te beach from my ocean front balcony. I will definitely be back.
