We recently stayed here and will plan to return soon. This was recommended by a colleague (we are from Colorado). This is quirky (Elvis Presley stayed here in 1961) and eclectic. It is not the high rise or new development, but rather charming and super-friendly. The rooms were clean - and yes it is older, but it was refreshing to... More

It is old but fine. Real cable instead of Hotelvision. It's clean, quirky, and in a better location than most anything twice its price. The river view would be phenomenal from a cot. Good restaurant with unexpectedly good steak and crab legs. We were heading up the coast to avoid I-75 and just lucked into this place. We'll go back... More

Our room was very clean and the balcony provided a gorgeous view of Kings Bay during sunset. The Ale House is right downstairs and has great food beers and games. The manatee tours are so close and convenient. I want to live here!

Our first impression was not so positive. The blue building didn't look that well from the outside. When we came in, the room was big. One room to put the suitcases, one bathroom and the bedroom. The quality of the room wasn't that good, but the view on Kings bay was just amazing. We saw vultures, dolphins and many other... More

As other reviewers stated, this is a perfect "old style" Florida motel. Room views are great, with second story balconies to see the water, fish, birds, dolphins. Rooms are a bit dated but the overall price, location (quiet waterfront), very good restaurant/pub, are a great combination. Nice area for walking. Kayak/boat rentals onsite for easy manatee viewing.

I have stayed at this hotel a least 4 times. Sometimes for several nights and others just a stop over heading to The Keys. We have always been satisfied with our accommodations, staff, restaurant and Tiki Bar. We will miss Marge as we have found out that she has now retired. Yes it is an older property but I have...

In many ways I like this place. It's right on the water and my room had a rear entry door so that I look out a window doesn't have people standing in front of it so I could leave to blinds open for a gorgeous view of Kings Bay. It has a private patio. I could launch my kayak right... More

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
