Stayed at HIE on Feb 22 2015 to do the manatee swim the next morning. Rates were good. It was your typical holiday inn express - clean, nice room/bed, decent breakfast. The guy at check in was pleasant. My husband loves the cookies that are sometimes given at check-in (we weren't given one) so at check-out my husband inquired about... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable (with plenty of pillows rated either "soft" or "firm"), the shower good, the staff friendly and helpful, and the breakfast adequate. (Fresh fruit, other than bananas or maybe apples, would be an improvement. But that is a minor complaint.)

When my fiancée and I travel together we usually choose to stay at smaller, independent properties rather than family-oriented chain hotels, and I had never before visited any Holiday Inn, so it says a lot that we were very impressed by what a well-designed and comfortable property the Holiday Inn Express Crystal River turned out to be. The staff were... More

We stayed here one night so we were close to the early morning manatee tour (River ventures is the best tour f.y.i). The location is great. There isn't much nightlife in Crystal River but we came from Orlando and it was easy to find. The hotel looks and feels brand new. Comfortable beds with your choice of firm or soft... More

Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of February visiting friends. Great location for visiting all the sites around. Staff were nice and friendly. Rooms very comfortable. We all really enjoyed this hotel and an added bonus was breakfast. My neices got addicted to making pancakes every morning.

Do yourself a favor and stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Crystal River, Florida. I visit Crystal River twice a year and that's the only place I stay. I've stayed at most of the other hotels/motels in the area but nothing compares to the Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are clean and neat with a friendly staff. Their breakfast... More

The hotel was very nice and clean. I could smell how clean the room was when I walked in and never found anything out of place or dirty. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast had good variety. I had been staying in Marriots but this was even better.

We always stay at Holiday Inn Express when out of town, as there are 5 of us and we can fit in the suites, plus free breakfast. This was a great experience. The staff was super wonderful. We drove late into the night to arrive (due to pea fog, we arrived at 1 am ish), the lady on duty was... More

We had an excellent overnight stay en route between Indiana and Largo Fl. The staff were very helpful with a minor problem in the room. The breakfast bar is included and was among the better versions of this sort of fare. The bed was comfy, the room and bath were very clean and the heating/chilling unit was about the quietest...
