I arrived here after flying to Tampa and driving in. Upon checking in the front desk agent told me they didn't have the company billing information. I immediately called the company to send it over, but before I was off the phone Chris Tanzer the general manager who was standing nearby and heard the conversation came over and told me... More

Nice hotel, the rooms are updated (bathrooms are original). Clean, staff was friendly. We stayed here when we visited Crystal River to swim with the manatees. The hotel was close to the docks. The breakfast was better then average for a hotel.

This was one of our most pleasant hotel experiences on our Florida trip. We only stayed for one night and had a manatee tour booked for early in the Morning. We were afraid that we would miss out on the free breakfast but it is provided from 6 AM - earlier than at most other plates we stayed at. The... More

I think the minuses outweighed the plus this second trip. First of all, check in very simple and woman at counter very nice. Nice property. Clean, but not as well kept as last year. Breakfast area beautiful with glass fish and manatees. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. We were told breakfast was at 6 am and we had a... More

Great place to stay while visiting family in Crystal River. The included breakfast definitely got the job done. The owner was a treat and gave excellent recommendations. If you stay in this area see the manatees and go to La Casa di Norma for dinner!

We only stayed one night but everything was very nice. Hotel is new or very well maintained. Everything in working order - good beds and pillows. Breakfast was standard HIE food - bagels, muffins, eggs, sausage and bacon, cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee and juice. Location close to down town areas and main roads. Would recommend hotel and stay there again.... More

Stayed 1/20/16 for one night. We were walk in and desk clerk was friendly and quick. He accommodated our wish for a ground floor room at AARP rate. Double queen with lots of room and great shower head. Real surprise was breakfast with fresh baked cinnamon rolls and a pancake machine. Even had walnuts to sprinkle on oatmeal. It is... More

We went to Chrystal river because we booked a snorkeling trip to the manatees. From this hotel you have app. 5 minutes by car to the meeting point (River Ventures), which comes in really handy if you've booked the early morning tour. We had some coffee and cereals before we went on the snorkeling tour and after our return the... More

Spacious room with 2 queen beds. Refrigerator in room was convenient. Room was very clean upon arrival and each afternoon after housekeeping service. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Free breakfast good. Bed could have been better. Overall, very good place to stay.

This place was very clean, great location there to see the manatees at the springs. The front desk staff funny and polite. The breakfast was as good as I have had at a express type hotel very fresh and very clean.
