I have stayed at Crystal Pier twice and can't wait to return. I have also read some of the reviews that are questionable in their disdain. One reviewer stated he arrived two hours early, driving from Sedona, AZ and wanted to park on property, but was told that was not possible. He cried that he had to use public parking until check-in time (2 pm). At 2 pm, the room was still not ready, but he was able to park at that time. First, it's a frequent occurrence that rooms are not ready, especially at Crystal Pier because folks simply do NOT want to leave this wonderful place and stay right up until the required check out time. Later in his little tirade, he stated that he was not allowed to take blankets out of the cottage. His excuse for disregarding a posted rule was that he had flown in and didn't have the capacity to pack extra belongings. Hmmm, earlier he insinuated that he arrived early from AZ and wanted to park on property. I guess he must have rented a car, but his little narrative sounds suspect to me! All in all, no vacation destination is perfect. Crystal Pier however is a wonderful place to unwind and relax. Yes, you must rely on doing your homework to find out exactly what the rates are at different times of the year, but that is true with most destinations. The staff has always been very helpful and accommodating to my family and we have family and friends who religiously return twice, annually. Most of the folks who belittle Crystal Pier (C.P.) didn't take responsibility to make their own vacation a wonderful experience and should NOT put it on the shoulders of C.P. to do everything for them!
