Spacious, clean, comfortable room at a value. Very friendly and helpful staff. The bed was especially comfortable and the Eco products were a nice touch. It would get good to see some recycling at these hotels. We were in search of Manatees and thanks to the desk clerk, he guided us to the park about 13 miles south and he... More

We had a nice room, very clean and had even an ironing board. Comfortable and good beds too. There was a choice of 6 pillows....Breakfast included a pancake maker, yogurt, eggs sausage etc. Certainly enough choice to eat. Very good location with restaurants and attractions nearby. Good WiFi and parking..

Our room was very clean and quiet. It had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. Also, the room rate was reasonable for the area. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay again at this hotel.

Hotel itself was nice. Close to the manatee tours, and easily accessible. Room and hotel was great. The girl at the desk was very kind and helpful. The older gentleman was not. He seemed more bothered that i was interrupting his tv channel changing than anything. Other than that. I will definitely stay here again.

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
