We booked this hotel for one night, because we had an early trip to swim with the manatees. The hotel was a quick 6 minute drive from Pete's pier, where we were catching the boat. The staff was extremely friendly. The room was a decent size and clean. The bed was comfy. We were in a hurry in the morning,... More

My daughter dropped her ring in the room, it was just costume jewelry but she was upset when she realized it was missing at the next hotel. We called and not only had the staff turned in the ring, the manager actually went to the post office on his own time to mail the ring to us! That is some... More

Came here after being booking into another hotel locally that was a total cess pit. Arrived fairly late asking after a room so we could get up early for a manatee swim. Not only were they really lovely and polite but they also gave us free late check out the next day so following our manatee swim we could come... More

I really liked this hotel. My brother and I stayed here on our way to Key Largo. I was very impressed with they way this hotel looks on the inside. Check in took a little while but this was my fault and had nothing to do with the staff. The staff was very helpful and just great customer service all... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times. Every year, a few times a year. It's usually booked, because we got at busy times and holidays. It is a great location close to most activities and restaurants. We enjoy the free breakfast and we always meet people to chat with over breakfast. Mary, the cook is so nice, we just... More

We travelled to Florida to spend Labor Day weekend with family for a surprise 90th birthday party. This particular area of Florida isn't highly populated and doesn't offer many hotel choices so I was somewhat hesitant in using points or cash for 3 nights in a hotel. I found the Holiday Inn Express Crystal River online and noticed it had... More

We had a nice restful night. The room was comfortable and clean. Our room had microwave and fridge, so we were able to keep our snaks and drinks cold. The selection of pillows was very good, the bathroom was shiny new, and the room itself was very quiet. The only surprise was the maid knocking on our door when we... More
