Room selection sucked

We were surrounded by rooms with kids. Make sure you request a room away from kids if you are a light sleeper. We had little kids across from us that we could hear, and a young infant that kept crying next door to us. The walls and doors are very thin. I heard a man blow his nose next door. It was horrible However the room is clean and smoke free. There are just a lot of kids here for the tours. Breakfast was so-so. Eggs, pancakes, yogurt, sausage gravy, sausage. Not much choices. No waffle machine.

It was satisfactory for the 1 night stay for our family reunion

First desk clerk was not very accommodating when we checked in, but when we returned from our family reunion there was a different clerk on duty and she was great. It was our 1st time in Crystal river and we wanted to know what there was to do in the area, but there were no brochures anywhere in the hotel. No advertisements at all for eating places or attractions.

Florida in July

The staff was very courteous, friendly, and helpful. Also very accommodating as in 3 separate staff members letting us know that if we forgot any toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, etc.) they had everything there for free. LARGE continental breakfast; which really couldn't be called that because they had scrambled eggs, sausage, and biscuits and gravy and some mornings omellettes. Being in Florida though, I would have liked to see more fruit besides an orange or brown bananas. The hotel was very clean inside and out and centrally located to all of Citrus County.

Great Breakfast!

We traveled with a small child and had a great experience here. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The room and pool were clean. It was a little to cold to enjoy the pool much, but we spent a little time there. The breakfast was much more than I expected to get. Hot pancakes, eggs, waffles, sausage... so much to choose from.

Great value!

Wonderful accommodations! Rooms were very clean. Lighting in bathrooms is always a challenge....would like to have a lighted, 10x one in every room. Lots if things for families to do in the area. We've stayed here ever time we're in town.

Very Nice

We read prior reviews that said the rooms were nice and staff friendly, and they were! The staff made the place an absolute joy. The rooms were very nice. Only a couple minutes away from the manatee adventures.

Fun for all in the Manatee capitol

We had a great trip with friends in the manatee capitol of Florida. The location is walking distance from the marina. The facility is new, and the rooms are clean and well furnished. WiFi is free, as is pool and gym. There are less expensive rooms in the area, but not as nice and clean.
