I have visited the Crystal River several times and always have stayed at other places. On my last trip I opted to stay at The Port Hotel and Marina and was very happy that I did. No, this might not be the newest, finest hotel in the area but it is a clean room with a hot shower and comfortable... More

The Port Hotel and Marina is just the place for an inexpensive, clean room with a beautiful view and fast access to the Nature Coast. The hotel dates back over 50 years so it doesn't have that "new car smell" but it's the kind of place you want if your budget is tight and you plan on spending time enjoying... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending an annual scuba diving / manatee snorkel weekend. The room was clean, the water was hot, and the view was great. All in all we had a great weekend and will stay there again.

Save some of your hard-earned money and give this place a try. It was good enough for Elvis, and it's still a clean, comfortable place to relax. Our room was recently painted, and had new carpet. No complaints. I wanted to stay here because of its Hollywood history, but I knew that it wasn't going to be a 5-star hotel.... More

We had a double room with view over the marina and river. This motel is quite old, but we had a very nice stay here. Beds are very comfortable and the shower is very good. I was told all rooms have new carpet now (except D-block). There is a dive shop that also offers manatee trips and boat rental. Just... More

At $25 cheaper a night than anyone else, its a no brainer. NOT a 5 star hotel with people blowing sunshine but a 20+ year old facility with everything you need. Comfortable bed, air conditioners (2 per room) and reasonably clean. Great dock on property if you want to sit on your rear porch and watch locals come and go.... More

Great view of the marina but that's it. Place is old, dirty and not maintained........at all! Could be good but it appears the owners are dis-engaged. We are thankful we brought our own pillows, sheets and air freshener.

Don M, I do apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced while staying at our property. I would like to take a moment to share that the owners of the Port have been trying to fix a lot of our issues we have had. All rooms have new carpet and have been painted. Also all rooms have mini fridges... More

Look- I have read a lot of the reviews. Here are the facts! It is an older place! Expect some outdated items. Room was just fine- again- older, but Fine! Cleanliness was good. I stayed in Building "B" and I'd stay there again. Friends stayed in Building "C" next to the pool, and that seemed just a tad bit nicer... More

We stayed here for a week and although the hotel is outdated, it is exceptionally clean, the staff is attentive and friendly and the view from your bed is unbeatable. This place is centrally located to everything in either direction. The Ale House has wonderful food, reasonably priced with an awesome environment. Met a lot of people while we were... More
