This hotel may not be the prettiest Bell at the Ball but as they say, location, location, location. This is old Florida living. The bathroom tile is pink/green/blue and cracked, the walls have poorly repaired patch work but it is clean and comfortable. What makes this hotel is the view. It sits right on the water. EVERY room faces the... More

If it were just the location, I would give this a solid 5 stars. However everything said by previous reviews is true. I originally was booking a room for myself and just needed somewhere inexpensive to lay my head at night. Having read the reviews I decided to take my chances. Then my parents as well as my sister decided... More

Location great, beautiful water one nice person at desk. This would be a great place to go if you live in a ditch somewhere actually the ditch may be better. The rooms were dirty ants and bugs no cleaning service poorly managed. I have stayed at several places in Crystal River and this has got to be the worst. Please... More

this hotel is located on a realy beautiful spot. But - sorry that i have to claim that - the whole building is a wreck and a whole lot should better be fixed urgently. Very old furniture, no fridge and no mircrowave in room. Breakfast was a bad joke (the lady on the desk told us, she had no time... More

We stayed 3 nights this week. Our purpose was to get out of the Canadian winter, and see the manatees. I read all the reviews before I booked and was well aware of the state of the rooms. Since I was already expecting the worst, I was very please when I arrived. The location can't be beat. Looking out over... More

The view is incredible. The people are friendly. The bar seemed like fun. Now let me say it up front, we are easy going people who are not bothered by old and outdated. The problem here is even with the upgrades, which as far as I can see consists of carpet and paint, the place needs to be razed. The... More

This place is so tremendously horrid, smelly, dirty and not worth your money. The paper thin towels and threadbare carpet left me grossed out but even worse, the maid threw away (or decided to keep) our sonicare toothbrush. Who does that? No hair dryer (just a gap in the wall). For $70, it was just not a good value at... More

Should be shut down by the state. Not fit for occupancy. Elderly lady at check in desk was rude. We did not get the room we had reserved. Our room we reserved was given to someone who stayed the night before and decided to stay another night. We left and drove 79 miles back home.

If you can only stay at places like the Hyatt or even Holiday Inn, this place is not for you. The hotel is a bit outdated and isn't the nicest or cleanest place, but we still enjoyed it. We stopped by for a night because we had a reservation to swim with the manatees at a place down the road.... More

OK, the motel part of the property is a little rough so if you are expecting the Holiday Inn and Ramada quality, this ain't it. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom was fine. What do you expect for 77 a night? Manatee's right outside your patio? That they had! If it was good enough for Elvis it was... More
