The Hotel Porto Elounda Deluxe is listed by Conde Naste as one of the 100 best resorts in the world. The inexpensive but very comfortable Ammos Hotel in Chania is also highly recommended. I stayed at the Hotel Porto Veneziano which overlooked the Venetian Harbor in Chania and the Hotel Casa Delfino which is like staying in a Venetian Palace and I recommend both hotels highly.

For hostels and very cheap accommodation see my hotel search page: www.hotelsofgreece.com/search but your best bet is to go to www.hotelsofgreece.com/crete and scroll down to the bottom
of the page
to the section on Apartments, Pensions and Rooms and keep clicking til you find something you like at a price you can afford. You can also use Booking.com's Crete page and search by category, price, etc
Eria Resort for the Disabled in Crete: The Eria Resort is specially designed with disabled people in mind located in the historic village of Maleme in an area of unique natural beauty, surrounded by olive groves with an unobstructed view of the Cretan sea
For those visiting Kissamos, Crete, the Bikakis Family Hotel in an inexpensive, family run hotel that features an impressive gallery of the owner's paintings and they also do nature tours of the area. Kissimos is the furthest town west and is very unspoiled by mass tourism.
For people who are opposed to using a travel agency and prefer to book hotels individually see www.booking.com where you can find hotels by catagory, location and even by facilities or whether or not they allow pets and if you book through that link (you should see my banner on it) I will get a small comission which will keep me being able to do what I do best which is eat, drink, travel and give away free information.
For those who want to take my advice and book through a reliable Greek travel agency you can find one at www.athensguide.com/agency.html
