“Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, quiet room”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

All within easy walking distance of the beach, restaurants and nightlife. The continental breakfast was good and gave us a chance to meet other guests. Two small swimming pools nestled into the garden-like grounds provided a sense of privacy. The desk and general staffs were always ready to help. We had chosen a smaller room but still had a kitchenette. (Our 3-night stay was mid-week so we didn't see the Tiki Bar in action.) A great change of pace from hotel chains!

I found this gem on the Hotel Tonight app - the price was significantly less than the other sites, so I was feeling optimistic about the value before even arriving. Overall the hotel experience was quite pleasant. The rooms aren't glamorous, and are a tad cheesy, but they go well with the Tiki Bar theme. The outside grounds were amazing - it's a tropical oasis with beautify flowers, outdoor lagoons, a lively little bar scene, and plenty of nooks and hideouts to help heat up the romance or just read a good book. But perhaps the best part is the location. 2 blocks in one direction is the beach, and the 2 blocks in the other direction and you're smack dab in the middle of downtown Delray. My impression is that Crane attracts a lot of middle-aged couples looking for a quiet little romantic getaway. My girlfriend and were quite a bit younger than anyone I saw (minus a few children), but we felt right at home. I'd highly recommend Crane for anyone looking for an affordable and unpretentious tropical getaway in the heart of Delray.

Room Tip: If it's a last minute booking I'd reco checking out the Hotel Tonight app. It was 25% less...

Nice change from the big chain hotels. Run more like an Inn. Great service and nice spacious room with living area and kitchen. Quiet location yet a block away from the beach and some shops. Better wifi would be nice.

This is our second visit to this charming hotel!
The staff is so accommodating from making reservations to check out process. We stayed in a one bedroom suite again. Perfect for a family of three!
We love the location! So close to Atlantic Avenue where shops and restaurants are.
This hotel is very clean and has tropical lush grounds, which makes a peaceful and quiet stay!
The only negative thing I have to say is about dishes in sink.
Since the suites have full kitchen with stocked dishes. They leave a sign that states you will be charged if you don't wash your own dishes. It's a little thing and I don't mind doing my own dishes. However ,don't feel like it gives you the confidence that the dishes, glasses etc. are really clean.
More of a helpful comment then a complaint.
Again, hotel is just lovely!!
Looking forward to our next visit!
Thank you again to staff!

As soon as you walk through the gates of this charming hotel you feel you have been transported into a tropical jungle! Beautiful exotic trees and flowers grow abundantly all around you and everywhere you turn there is the sight and sound of running water - very soothing, and plenty of secluded areas to sit and read or relax.
We stayed here for 10 days and were very happy with our choice. Even though it is only a block away from East Atlantic Avenue, with its many shops and restaurants, it was very quiet and only a 5 minute walk to the beach itself. The bedroom was spacious, clean and comfy with plenty of storage facilities and a small kitchenette with a coffee machine,and tea and coffee provided. The staff were more than helpful with any small query you might have, and there was a notice board on the office door giving the weather, beach and sea conditions for each day. The two pools were big enough for keeping cool and dipping and had comfortable sun beds to lie on. Our only gripe was that the breakfast, served outside in a thatched Tiki bar, was served up on cheap paper plates with plastic cutlery and paper cups. This rather deteriorated from the charm of the hotel itself. It would also have been useful if they had provided a washing line or airer on the little patio at the back so there was somewhere to dry our wet towels and costumes.

We were on our way to Key West, and needed a place to stay for just one night. Read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and thought we'd try and get a room. We were lucky enough to get a suite, and it was amazing. It was so tropical-like, you almost felt like you were at an island getaway! The gardens were beautiful, the paint colors and paintings on the walls were wonderful and it was spotless, which is always a priority with us. Very helpful staff, and a wonderful relaxing breakfast in the tiki hut topped off our visit. Looking forward to going back and spending more time there!

We really enjoyed our stay at Cranes Beach House. The gardens are lovely and make the place seem much larger than it really is. There are plenty of quiet areas to sit and relax as well as two pools. The hotel area is very quiet yet is only 5 mins from East Atlantic Ave (with all it's shops and restauarants) and the beach. Having looked around we would not want to stay anywhere else in Delray. WIFI is included in the price (unlike some hotels).
The only gripe is the flimsy plastic cutlery, and paper plates/cups at breakfast which did not seem to belong in such a pleasant hotel.
