The location is excellent with quick access to Crystal River. The adjacent restaurant has good food and decent service. The hotel itself hasn't had much maintenance in the 10 years we have been coming. The room appeared clean but smelled. The bed spread reminded me of something that Goodwill wouldn't accept as a donation. We always bring our own sheets,... More

Fantastic location, wonderful staff, but the hotel is falling apart. Stairs to upper level is dangerous! Bar and food unavailable after 7pm - very odd. Wi-fi also poor. Rebuild / renovate and I will be happy to go back.

The location was great. The restaurant on the property was nice. The Hotel itself was outdated, but very inexpensive.The room was clean and comfortable, and had great views of the water. There was no light in the room other than the bedside lamp, making eating or reading difficult.

The port hotel was rather old and outdated. It was however very inexpensive (off season) . The restaurant (ale house) was pretty good food too. The marina was decent. The bed was terrible, mattress was some of the worst I can recall in recent memory. The room dead bolt was broken/missing. To be honest, if I return to the area... More

My wife and I decided to stay here for a weekend getaway and we were not disappointed. Even though the hotel is an old one it was a GREAT stay. The room was very clean, the view was amazing, and the location was perfect for all we had planned.

Read any of the other reviews and they are probably spot on. While we did do a canoe trip and saw lots of manatees, that was the best part, the rest of the hotel property is very poorly maintained. The furniture is from the 60's, and is probably left over from when Elvis shot a movie there (that may be... More

Old rooms, the air con unit in our room was a loud nightmare! Elvis stayed here once but he would not stay here again. Parking is free, the swimming pool freezing! Nice view from the deck, sunset,dolphins seacows and some boats!

Room was just fine. Old but can't beat the price and pet friendly. Nice morning view of the bay and manatees swam around the dock every morning. The lady in the office was as friendly as she could be. The Ale House has great cheeseburgers and cheese steaks. The Ale House Staff could not have been any friendlier. The hindu... More

Where do I begin, I have stayed here numerous times over the years and I went out of my way! To get my family members to say here, I talked the place up, based on my previous stays, big mistake! I can not believe how they have let this place go! I reserved 2 rooms, 1 of the rooms was... More
