“practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 22 October 2009

We took a long weekend to visit relatives in the palm beach area. Didn't want the hustle and bustle of the city - but wanted night time entertainment nearby. Crane's gave us the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds. Lovely old Florida ambiance surrounded us. Staff was wonderful and quick to respond to needs. Sometimes small boutique hotels don't seem to give you enough privacy. This was not the case at Crane's. Plenty of cozy little sitting venues are hidden away in cozy corners under a beautiful canopy of palms and lush tropical foilage.

Absolutely wonderful hotel! Perfect for a weekend getaway with your significant other. Rooms were old Florida style but updated with new furniture, beds, comfortable chairs in the 1 bedroom suite. All good things to say about Crane's Beach House. When I called to make reservations, I was told Crane's is as cute as it looks on the internet. IT IS!

We decided to stay at Crane's based on reviews, a local cousin who had had friends stay there, and its webiste photos and description. We couldn't have been more pleased. The grounds are unique and immaculate, and the suite was lovely. We asked for a room away from the Tiki Bar and had no problem with outside music, although our upstairs neighbor did like to walk around the apt at 2 am. And as another reviewer mentioned, the bed, especially with the feather-top mattress cover, is a little on the soft side. But, in an attractive and quiet neighborhood (considering it's so close to Atlantic Ave) , and only 1 1/2 blocks to the beach, it would be hard to decide to try anywhere else.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a few days in Sept. and we were very pleased. The staff was exceptional and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. We felt as if we were in the tropics. Along with the great hotel you are one block from the beach and all the shops and dining Delray has to offer. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks for the wonderful time............................

Thank you Crane's staff for a wonderful and relaxing anniversary weekend. From the moment we got to your establishment we felt relaxed. The staff took care of any need we had and were very helpful. The room was amazing! I love all the extra touches. It felt like we were on an island get-a-way. The manager surprised us with a bottle of red wine with card wishing us well on our anniversary. It was such a thoughful touch. The rest of our stay only got better. Relaxing by the pools, enjoying the tiki area, even with the beach only a block away we really didn't want to leave our little weekend paradise. We highly recommend Crane's beach house, you will not be disappointed. We didn't want to leave! We will be back and will be telling everyone what a hidden gem Crane's beach house is hidden in the tree's on Gleason street our little Oasis from the world.

I have a bad back, perhaps like many people, so I booked this hotel with the EXPLICIT understanding that they would provide firm bedding. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The mattresses were all the same in each room. All were incredibly soft. I could even squeeze the entire mattress together in one hand. These soft mattresses would certainly not support my back and I wasn't going to take any chances of injury.

The problem is that when I asked for my deposit back the manager refused. She offered to upgrade me to a better room for the same price, which was very nice, but I just couldn't take the chances with the very same soft mattresses. I wanted the firm mattress that I was promised.

Consequently I had to leave, find other last minute accommodations in peak season. She kept half of my deposit refusing to admit that Crane's had falsely described their bedding in conversations with us.

Watch out. They like to take your money here and are unreasonable when confronted with a problem. I'm sure people can have a nice stay here but you'll take your chances. Whatever they tell you ... get it in writing.

islandgirl33, General Manager at Crane’s Beach House Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas, responded to this review, 3 August 2009
Thank you for your recent post and please understand we do have solutions for all of our guests bedding preferences which none were suitable for you. Your reservation was booked as a non refundable stay with no changes or cancels. Upon arrival, you were given many options including an upgraded luxury king bed suite at no additional cost to you. You decided not to stay at our hotel so it’s very hard for you to make a comment on the firmness of the beds without ever sleeping on any of them at all. During high season and peak dates we require advance notice for all cancellations as they impact us greatly being a small luxury boutique hotel. We did make an exception for the non refundable rate booked and refunded half of your money back to your credit card. We made every attempt possible to work with you but you mentioned that you already made other hotel arrangements that day. We understand that you felt our beds were too soft due to the feather mattress on them; however we did offer to take the feathers off and asked for you to try one night before you decided to leave. Our hotel replaces our mattresses with only very firm name brand luxury mattresses. We do offer seven layers of luxury bedding to soften and provide extra comfort on each bed. It is always best to ask to remove the feathers and some of the layers for a firm bed. Our hotel is unique in many ways and we take pride in how we handle our guest service department. We are far from a box hotel and really strive to make every guest feel comfortable and relaxed.

Warmest Regards,
Cathy Balestriere
General Manager
