We have been making an annual MLK weekend trek down to Crystal River for over twenty years now. Usually staying at the same hotel. It has gone thru several ownership changes and name changes over the years and it's latest name is The Port Hotel and Marina.. "We" are a Scuba Diving social club and usually bring a fairly large...

This rooms have definitely seen better days. It was clean and smelling of bleach so i was confident in its cleanliness. However, very dated and if it was renovated would be a gold mine! Everything in the room did work including the TV, air and heat. We weren't in the room much though because there was so much to see... More

this place was so bad we checked out without staying and had paid in advance on Expedia. No hot water. It is so bad: broken blinds, broken hair dryer plug in, looked like someone tried to kick door in. My advice is to give up the view and stay in town. Two girls at check in/out were very nice

The hotel is in a beautiful location right on the water. As for the hotel Itself I hate to use the word dump but that's what it is. Everywhere you look something needs to be cleaned, painted, repaired, or replaced. The whole place needs updating. We had two air conditioners, one worked one didn't. The one that did leaked water...

We love this property. The staff is awesome, service is excellent, you never have to leave. The Manatee are all around in the Winter months and early spring. They have adult tiki bar, a restaurant family friendly with pool tables, games, food, music. The owner has plans to remodel the hotel and a lot of work has been done. We... More

Had no hot water, warm at best. People were friendly, house keeping was great if you need something ask them, front desk no help. Restaurant very UN-organized, food was OK, tiki bar was great. Did run across a cockroach or two (but this is Florida). The marina was great, went to swim with the Manatees, they would surface around you... More

This hotel has one of the best locations in Crystal River. It's old and rather worn down, but we stayed here last year and came back this year. Because the location is great, there is a very nice restaurant right there at the water front and a boat rental on the premises with manatee trips. And the wifi is excellent.... More

The hotel is outdated, at least Block B where we stayed. We saw some other blocks that looked newer so maybe the rooms are better there. But we are not so fussy with that as long as the rooms are clean and with comfortable beds. The staff were friendly, the restaurant served good-value meals, and location is very nice.

We arrived at around noon. Great location on the waterfront. Immediately apparent that the various accommodation blocks looked "tired" and run down, at best. The man at reception confirmed we were too early for check-in and said we should return in an hour. "They were cleaning the rooms", he said. No problem though and we went to the adjoining waterfront... More
