Crane’s Beach House Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 January 2014

This was about our tenth time visiting Delray Beach and this was our fourth time staying at this Hotel. This picturesque oasis makes you feel as though you have left all the hustle and bustle behind you every time you pass through the gates. The staff is so friendly and very attentive to the guests needs. The rooms are decorated with So Florida charm and having a kitchen was especially convenient. Staying a block from the beach and and just a half block off Atlantic Ave is a perfect location. No need for a rental car unless you want to go off on an excursion. We will definitely return soon.

We stayed here for two days this December (2013), and from the first, we were transported to the Florida we used to love. Located just half a block from the main strip, this quaint and comfortable retreat offered the feel of an old Key West hotel with twisting lanes an two small, warm, landscaped pools. The staff was always welcoming and seemed genuinely happy to help with the smallest request. Our suite #26 on the upper floor was sunny and large. The living room furniture was attractive and comfortable, the kitchen was generously appointed, and the bed and bedding were excellent. The other rooms at Crane's vary greatly in size and sun offering a variety for different tastes and needs. You do not need a car, for you can walk to the beach two short blocks away where you will find rental chairs and umbrellas at moderate prices, and you can walk to the restaurants and shops along the main street. If you bring your car, there is free parking. We loved every minute of our stay here, and we will surely return.

Our entire family gathered for a reunion and birthday celebration and this was the perfect place. Facilities and rooms were wonderful -- full kitchens with everything you need and attentive staff. Two blocks from a beach but we almost never left the pool.

Stumbled on this place when our reservation fell through in Boca. What a gem! I was sad to only stay one night. I will most certainly return for a longer stay.

The hotel is oozing with South Florida charm. The rooms are large, quiet, and comfortable. The staff is outgoing and personable. The owners have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable, (i.e. sunscreen by the pool).

For longer stays in Florida I can't imagine a better location. The rooms are suites with a large and comfortable living room, a separate bedroom and fully stocked kitchen with full size refrigerator and oven.

My only suggestion to the management for improvement would be breakfast. It was very limited with only two types of cereals, and a few items to select from.

All in all, Crane's is a magical place and I shall return. Ooh, forgot to mention the location is great. Close to the beaches and the shops.

Room Tip: Amazed at how quiet the place is. We had room 34 which faces tiki bar, but no worries. Once inside...

My husband and I spent a few days in South Florida and "hotel hopped" so we could check out a few different places. We stayed at The Seagate Hotel next door to Crane's for 2 nights. After staying just 1 night at Crane's, I wish we had stayed at Crane's the whole time! They definitely are superior small logding. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. The photos online don't really do the property any justice. The staff was warm and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

After working several consecutive weeks in Miami we decided to spend a few nights in a calmer, less urban locale. Crane's Beach House in Delray Beach seemed to fit the bill. Upon arrival we were delighted to hear we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. The extra space and privacy was wonderful. The grounds are as described by other reviewers. But we found the suites to be better than imagined. There is a large living room area with TV in an armoire, a dinette table at one side, an equipped galley kitchen with good size pantry. Kitchen is only needing a dishwasher. But one kitchen wall has a large , whimsical mural. The bathroom was traditional with Bath & Body works toiletries and the hallway had a good sized closet with extra linens and a safe. Our bedroom was large with plenty of room for a comfy king bed and another TV in an armoire. It would be very easy for 2 people to stay in this suite a week or longer if time permitted. You could have 2 children sleeping on the sectional in the living room as well.
Location is great, an easy walk to beach and many shops and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Our first evening they held a tasting event/contest for several in town restaurants. This was open to the public as well as guests and as long as you bought a drink at the Tiki Hut, the food was free. Talk about hospitality! Two bands and lots of local neighbors made for a loud and crowded but fun party. By 9:30 or so it was over and quiet. As others have mentioned, breakfast could be better, but hey, it's there. The little quiches were nice.
This was our first visit to Delray Beach and Crane Beach House. But I hope it won't be our last.

Judging from the reviews we had high expectations and they were met and exceeded in our 2 night stay. We especially liked the expansive one bedroom unit. The photos did not do it justice. I cannot recall a larger or more comfortable bed. Both the facility and staff were extremely welcoming. We were treated with a personal warmth that was particularly appreciated in contrast to the five star resort in south beach that we went next (were service was also good but seemed to be just part of the job). I left my eyeglass case at Crane's and they emailed me within an hour and mailed it to my home even though I told them not to bother. It is this type of caring that makes Crane's special.
This was our first time in Delray Beach and we loved both the Beach area and the downtown. We appreciated the short walk to the beach which was never very crowded. Opposite the beach, we eased into each evening at Sand Bar where we enjoyed music, drinks and the decent bar menu. The adjacent Café Luna Rosa had excellent food and service. We so much enjoyed the area near the hotel that we almost missed the downtown area along Atlantic Avenue on the mainland. It was full of sophisticated restaurants but was not touristy. We would certainly return to Delray Beach and Crane's if the opportunity presented. Two days was not enough.

Room Tip: The one bedroom suite (I believe we stated in room 27) was excellent.
