Very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Cleanliness is the only way I feel at ease and this place provided that. Walking distance to the main strip for restaurants and shops. The owners work super hard all day renovating other units and making the grounds a tropical oasis with plants. Sitting at the little table outside at night was super peaceful. They have put in top notch upgrades you usually don’t get in a hotel. The only thing I would change...like others have mentioned, the instant coffee. I did not like the bedside table in our room, my items kept falling through the bars, it needs a glass overlay to make it more useful for charging/laying belongings. The light on the air unit is very bright. These are super minor complaints. I would definitely stay again if we ever go back to the area. Very nice, hard working owners, hopefully they will expand to other parts of Florida, because I always pick somewhere new.

We are very picky about hotels, and we loved the Crystal Manatee. The rooms wete completely renovated and the location is perfect. You can park your car and walk to the springs, restaurants and shops.

The room was clean and very modern. Location is walking distance to parks, restaurants, and shops. The staff was very friendly and hospitable. They even left our breakfast in the fridge at night so we could grab and go in the morning. We will definitely be back!

The rooms are very nice and clean. They have a fun atmosphere and the bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast was very limited. We would stay here again.

i liked that it was right next to a park u can walk to.the hotel feels it was like hidden an tucked away. quiet safe place. nice modern room. cool area to be in. cant wait to stay again.

Loved the room, VERY CLEAN!!! Driving up to property looks like it could use a little sprucing up but when you get inside...WOW!!! Will definitely stay again! 😁

This was the cleanest room I have ever seen, everything sparkled. We had been delayed by traffic so we were after 9:00 closing. We called and explained to the owner, Joel and he graciously came back when we arrived to check us in, met us as we were arriving. Europeon style room and shower were unique and wonderful. We will try to stay there again.
