From charm to comfort ... from traditional to modern... from location to amenities... from value to host, you will place this inn in your top 5 worldwide.

Great location for dinner and browsing old Melbourne. The room we stayed in was excessively noisy with air conditioning over the bed (not the main house). The biggest issue was the 4.30am and 5.15am trains that are within 1/4 mile and blow their whistle as they near Melbourne. The facililty is clean and simple.

For those of you who remember the song "The Train Went Through the Middle of the House," this is where it must have happened. There is a frieght train track several blocks away from the inn and trains rumble through every hour or so (4 AM to 11 PM) with a very loud whistle and "a million train cars." So... More

Our comfortable poolside room gave us a beautiful view of the grounds [thanks to the one-way glass], but the inn's spacious backyard overlooking the river was even better. During our three-day stay we watched pelicans, herons, manatees, alligators, and even a porpoise. Plenty of dining options were within walking distance. Our favorites were Bella's [Italian] and Ichabod's, which overlooks the... More

When I contacted Crane Creek Inn to make my reservation, they were very responsive in their communications. When I contacted them to cancel my reservation (due to illness), all of a sudden they were non-communicative, and they charged my credit card full price as if I was a "no show" (instead of half price - for a cancellation "within two...

Crane Creek Inn is a great place to stay in Melbourne, FL. Bob Shearer, the Innkeeper is a very gracious and accommodating host! As for the Inn itself, it is extremely well maintained, comfortable and centrally located. The rates are reasonable, the location perfect.

Tucked up and nested on the bank overlooking the intercoastal waterway in Melboure Florida is the Crane Creek Inn. Bed and Breakfasts come and go but this jewel is rare. It's within walking distance of the historic downtown attractions of Melboure Florida. In all of the crazy unmanaged, thoughtless growth of Florida there are a few places that remain thoughtful...

The pool was lovely and warm,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Crane Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast is the Melbourne area's only true waterfront boutique Bed & Breakfast, and the only B&B with a heated, full size swimming pool. We are located directly on the water and an easy 1 block stroll to Historic Downtown Melbourne.Why drive to dinner and/or drinks? At Crane Creek Inn you can walk to over 10 fine dining and casual restaurants, and over 8 relaxing and fun bars/clubs - most with live music. Our beautiful, tree-lined Downtown also has four blocks of unique shops and boutiques; from Antiques to Fine Art, Women's clothing, jewelry and more.Our Guests are awestruck by our beautiful grounds, and the serene pleasure of observing the manatees, bottlenose dolphin, alligators, and over 50 species of birds from our waterfront boardwalk while enjoying a complementary beverage (adult or otherwise). Bring your kayak or have one delivered for a truly unforgettable experience on the water.We offer our Guests an abundance of amenities. Our Guest rooms, each uniquely decorated with a tropical, Key West flair, all have private entrances and private baths. Luxurious 700 thread count linens on our Queen and King beds and top of the line soaps, shampoo and conditioners. Most rooms have a private deck or patio with very comfortable furniture for breakfast dining or just relaxing with a good book.
