I arrived a little early for check in but was taken to the room, when she opened the door she said oh it isn't ready. So I walked down the street to park and was on phone for over an hour. I came back, to the room, took my stuff in and the longer I sat there the more unacceptable... More

DO NOT stay here! I made a reservation 1 week ahead of time, the owner Ami took my credit card to hold the room. After driving over an hour and a half we made it to the crystal manatee to find that the office was black and the door was locked. I called the number and told the guy who... More

The website is definitely misleading here. I had stopped by this place a year ago but had not seen a room and decided to stay here for a short visit to Crystal River to kayak in the area. Well - we get to our room and yes the mattress is probably new *and one of the cheapest you will ever... More

The website is very misleading. We were interested in booking for future business needs on a long term basis. Thank goodness I had not booked before we arrived. I knew as soon as we got out of the car that it was a dump. It looked like an old rundown motel. There was nobody at the office but we rang... More

We made reservations 2 months in advance along with a friend of ours. We arrived to find they keep reservations in a notebook, and of course we weren't listed. Our friend was, though. The manager said he had one room left and he wanted to show it to us. It was across the street in what appeared to be long... More

My stay here is on business. So the rooms are a little outdated but the kitchen is fully equiped, the Wi-Fi is fast and free, lots of tv channels, tile floors, quiet neighborhood. Pets allowed, there is also well-kept trails and amenities just walking distance. The manager is always around, easy going, looking out for you.

This would have our third year. When my husband died in November 2013. I told john I had to cancell the 6 week vacation. He said he would return my deposit for stay in march and april. He still says I will get my refund. It has been 5 months and many excuses but no refund.

This is the best hotel in this town. Everyone made me feel welcome and at home, they would help me right away with any problems I ran into. John was such a gentleman and professional as he looked out for me being a single woman and my husband is deployed. Whenever I come into town I always try The Crystal... More
