Recent guest reviews

Great roadside hotel. Located on the crystal river with a clean pool and hot tub. Breakfast delious

nice place 4.00 pm to late check in time had to wait 2.5 hr to check in

It was wonderful exsperance really enjoy our stay. The staff and room were top notch. Really liked Crackers being next door. Will most certainly come back.

We have stayed at this hotel many times in the past. It is always very clean and comfortable. We have usually been fishing all day and the hot tub is greatly appreciated! We have also used the available gas grills to cook up some freshly caught fish.

Well it really beutiful there although the beds were very uncomfortable. The room was semi clean but not bad. We really enjoyed our tour of the springs the captain was very good as I am a avid boater my self and I really appreciated his knowledge of the area. Over all I'd give it a 7 out of 10 due to the room. Also the breakfast was good but shut down to early, should of lasted a little longer.

Last minute reservation in the area. Please with the results. Clean and friendly staff.

The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was good, but the room smelled horrible! It was like the carpet had been wet many times over and not dried properly.

It was on the way and nearby. I'm a picky traveler and was super tired, but extremely satisfied.

The staff at this hotel are wonderful. We actually didn't get to hotel until 2AM. Called & told them we would be later than expected. Checked me in over phone & security guard was waiting for us. Ate at Crackers next door, food is great and you get plenty of it. Also checked another thing of Bucket List. Swam with Manatees with Sunshine River Tours. Our Captain John was awesome. Found us Manatees that wanted to play.

The room smelled very musty. The bed was like a piece of board with a hay top. Very uncomfortable. The staff was great however!

We met some friends there who have a boat. We were doing a scalloping adventure. So, the fact that there is a marina and boat ramp made it very convenient. The front desk staff while not terribly friendly were efficient. The room was nice and the property is well maintained.

This hotel is on the water with a marina, dive shop, and neighboring restaurant-bar which creates the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing Florida get-away.

My husband and I came down to Crystal River for our anniversary to swim with Manatees. The room was really clean, the only complaint about the room is the A.C. did not cool down the room, at all. This hotel is close to everything including Homosassa Springs. The front desk lady was not very friendly but other than that it was a great experience. They also had a descent breakfast!

Desk staff very friendly. Went out of their way to help us on a cold, dark, rainy night. Very helpful breakfast service.

The room was very comfortable. Older hotel but very well maintained. Friendly staff. In the right spot, lots to see and do with easy access to everything. Only wish was that I owned my own boat!!

Check in was easy and we didn't arrive until 2am! Rooms were clean, smelled fine, bed was uncomfy the mattress could used to be replaced just felt like no padding really left but all in all it worked. We went on a manatee tour at 7am came back to the hotel, swam and used the hot tub (which was awesome-and all outside) and we were able to check out before 12noon so that made the morning more relaxed and not so rushed. Breakfast was nice and the staff all around were very nice, will use this Best Western again.

OK. Had problem with heater. Fire alarm went off. Staff was very accomodating to rectify.

First impression was good. The day shift clerk allowed us to check in early and the room and grounds were well cared for and clean. The beds are comfortable but not adequate for two adults, luckily I was traveling with my daughters. During early evening we returned and needed bath towels and encountered an extremely rude front desk clerk. When walking towards the pool area the maintenance staff yelled at us, scaring my 2-year-old grandaughter for walking on the freshly painted walkway right in front of our door, which was not marked off. Next morning he was still painting and showed annoyance, again was very rude, muttering under his breath as he waited by our door for quite some time until I told him we were not leaving until the check-out time. I had to ask him to leave us an unpainted path so that we could get to our car, which he reluctantly did. Breakfast was adequate, not great, although one female staff would not allow us to make our own waffles and insisted on doing it herself. She hovered by our table staring at us while we ate, also very rude. The grounds were beautiful, on the river, adjacent restaurant was ok, and pool was crystal clean. Entire stay would have been perfect had staff not been so rude. We love this area and visit often but will probably choose another hotel for future vacations.

Next to Cracker's bar and grill in Crystal River. Within walking distance to a bar, live band and grill.

My wife and I only stayed one night but it was the best. Will go back.
