Great handicap room! OUR ROOM WAS CLOSE to the office and having Denny's attached to hotel was a nice plus! WILL return soon!

Nothing to brag about, basic hotel accommodations.

My husband and I went to Crystal River for the weekend to relax and enjoy .The hotel was very nice, clean and professional staff.. The only problem was we brought out boat, although the hotel does have a loading / unloading ramp. You can not use the slips overnight, without a additional charge from a marina. Also the canal to get to the main water is very shallow, almost too dangerous to boat through. The hotel was perfect besides that, which isn't even related just thought boaters should know this information prior. The pool was clean and the have a Denny's right next door so very easy in and out breakfast, Plus super affordable!

Hotel was nice, no frills but adequate for our purposes. Staff was courteous and accommodating. Enjoyed eating at the hotel restaurant every morning. I would recommend this hotel to someone.

There are many adventure activities around this hotel and also it close to restaurant(never be hungry). The rooms is easy and simple.

Toilet was clogged, we had to plunge yourself. Front desk said "no maintenance on staff, I can give you a plunger." Bedding was dirty. Carpet was filthy. Pool was dirty.

This is a great spot for a layover when traveling the suncoast. Great price, clean and quiet. Great parks nearby for fishing, hiking, kayaking and manatee viewing. Marina right behind the place and great restaurants right down the street. We sill most likely go back and stay loner next time !

my room was clean had microwave ,fridge.it was well located for my trip.the price was very low .great value

We spent 4 days here as we explored the sights in the area. We had a very comfortable stay and would stay here again. The room was large and comfortable and clean.There was a microwave and fridge, which is important to us, but not coffee. Only down side was the lack of a breakfast of some sort. We even enjoyed the unheated pool though there were a few leaves and errant frogs joining us,. But who would have expected a couple of nuts from up north swimming in COLD water this time of year anyway?

Good location but place is old and smelled bad. No conditioner. Room was small.

The hotel is old and mostly occupied by male construction workers, Right next door bar with noisy music and hotel occupants sit around and drink beer in hallways. I would not book with family or young girls. Did not feel comfortable staying with young daughter in room. Rooms were outdated and towel and bedding were excessively worn I would not stay here in the future.

FOR THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR THE ROOM IT FAR EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. IT WAS CLEAN SMELLING WHEN YOU WALKED IN, HAD A MINI FRIDGE AND MICROWAVE. WAS LOCATED ONLY 3 MILES FROM THE PLACE I WAS VISITING AND HAD LOTS OF THINGS NEARBY TO DO.

I always arrive afteer 8pm. There is always a friendly staff waiting for me. The location is great and the rooms are clean. It is also very quiet.

Not to bad, for a Days Inn. Room was clean. Employees were pleasant. Hotel is aging. Only problem I encountered was the key card. I had to make several trips to the front before it worked. I would stay again.

In the morning the toilet in my bathroom wasn't working and upon calling the desk I was advised to use the bathroom in the hotel lobby. It was only after raising a bit of a fit that I was able to use a room that was not booked. I was not happy with the way the hotel handled the situation.

Our stay was comfortable and pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a good bargain.

the best hotel i stayed in and great deal and nice clean pool.

When we hit the road from Georgia to Florida, we were not expecting that much. Getting to that Days Inn really made are weekend! The location is just great, walking distance from the river and the boat ramps, the ambience is enthralling, and the service is great... especially when you think how little all that cost to you. The gift shop on the back of the hotel, which organizes excursions for people of all the ages, from little kids to senior people, is outstanding... snorkeling and swimming with the manatees is an epic experience! What else... oh! The Buzzz Bar inside the facility is amazing and the two ladies that bartend there are exquisitely awesome!!! We couldn't ask for anything better.

Stayed at this hotel 04/04/11 - woke in A.M. covered with dime-sized whelps and festering bites. Bed bugs in clothing, suitcase, computer bag. I have numerous bites on arms, stomach, back, shoulders, and even along my hairline/temple. They itch like crazy. When confronted the manager accused me of bringing fleas into the hotel ??? I don't have fleas.

We came to the area to enjoy the beautiful Crystal River. I had booked this room online days earlier. The room was clean,as per other reviews, there WAS a slightly musty smell. I attributed that to the age of the room,and old carpet. Beds are comfortable. Shower works,only this booking was for 4, two adult kids and one minor; plus me. I had originally made it for 3, but one other adult kid wanted to come along, too. I mentioned this at the desk on checking in,that I'd need another towel set. The clerk said she wanted to charge me more for bringing along another kid, and I told her this was booked online and it clearly stated there that I could have up to 5 in that room! In the room, there is ONE puny bottle of shampoo. NO lid for the ice bucket. The staff seems mild mannered and indifferent,not at all interested in whether we were happy with our room,indeed not once were we asked about that. My son even went to the office to ask a question of the lady working there on the late shift, and she was sitting in the back, watching t.v. or something, she just ignored him. Next door to us, some people clearly were using their bathtub as a beer cooler, you could hear the popping of beer cans and conversation every time you used the bathroom. The pool didn't open till between 9 am, and we had to check out at 11! This place has a wonderful pool area, play area for kids,it IS clean,the Denny's attached is the best Denny's there has ever been, but the MOTEL STAFF needs warmth and personality and need to go to "Hospitality School!"..They could take lessons from the Denny's Servers there. THEY at least, seemed to give a fig whether we were happy or not! If I ever come back to the area, don't know if I'd stay again. I like it when they act like they're happy I came at least. The maid cut us a nasty look when we were packing to go, don't know why, we didn't complain, didn't tear up our room,were good and quiet guests; even pre-cleaned for her. That resulted in no tip left behind. Take a lesson from Microtel in Weeki Wachee, Days Inn! TRAIN YOUR STAFF!!!! And use something in that room so it won't smell so musty! Make sure that when folks want that so-called free coffee in the lobby,that there actually is some! NO EXCUSE for no coffee. Less excuse for the desk employee that told me "yes, I am glad I was able to get mine before it all ran out!" She said something about some one else going to go get some more coffee. The coffee in the room is beyond nasty. I recommend bringing your own. I'd like to come back to this area, but you'd need to fix these issues before I'd want to stay here again. ..
