Perfectly situated hotel to see the manatees. Lovely staff, spacious room for a family, huge super comfy beds and great bedding. The breakfast could have been a bit better but they don`t have a real restaurant on site. Overall a really nice hotel and very reasonably priced.

Good experience. We only stayed one night. The accommodations are very comfortable. Room very clean and with good design. Good internet connection. We had the pancakes in the afternoon - they are available until midnight - that was good ! The breakfast is good, just perfect to start the day. Very good coffee. Friendly staff. We will definitely consider it... More

Super clean room's, we rented 2 rooms for 4 day's, They also offer free breakfast, close to everything. If you are a boater there is plenty of space, If you are a big pool person its kind of on the small side '' FYI '',

My husband and I planned a short get away at the Holiday Inn Express in Crystal River. We arrived a little later than expected and were very pleased when we walked into our room. It was really clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was large. There were plenty of towels - one hand towel was folded into... More

Stayed here twice during the scallop season and would highly recommend to anyone considering accommodations in Crystal River. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The free breakfast is decent. We were happy they offered designated parking for our boat too.

My daughter and I stayed here the night before our Manatee swim. Hotel staff was gracious and friendly. They made sure we were aware of all amenities and even offered us a late check out so we could shower after our swim. This is quite possibly the cleanest and best kept hotel I have ever had the pleasure of patronizing.... More

We came here for short weekend vacation. Room was very clean and had everything you may need: blow dryer, fridge, tv, wifi, coffee maker and free breakfast. Very well located to outdoor activities. About 30 min. from Rainbow Springs, 5 minutes away from manatee and scalloping tours, 30 min from Homosassa, and 1 hr. from Fanning and Manatee Springs. Very... More

We stayed two days here. Nice new hotel, very clean rooms and facility. Good breakfast selection (normal hotel breakfast food). We didn't eat any other meals here. We didn't use the Wi-Fi. Friendly service. Reasonable prices.
