stayed here while I was visiting the Manatees at Crystal River. Always nice and clean upon our return from the river trips. Nice warm/hot water too (which as the river is COLD was quite welcome.) A bit pricey for what it is, but then rooms during Manatee season tend to be at a premium, so be aware of that (it... More

We just needed a quick overnight in Crystal River; I looked at competitors that looked nice but were in cruddy looking locations, so we decided to give Best Western a 2nd chance because you could see water and it's nice to walk next door to Crackers for dinner. I paid extra for a 'balcony room'. We got a balcony room......on... More

After staying in a hotel for one night with an almost scary atmosphere, we were saved the horror and due to the kind help of the front desk were able to stay the rest of our trip in comfort. A wonderful experience.

We stayed overnight before a fishing charter. Convenient location next to dive shop and charter location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good- pancakes/waffles, bacon, juice, etc...the facilities are older and tired looking (classic best western circa 1975).

We had a wonderful weekend at Crystal River Best Western Resort... the marina and hotel were both excellent...from check-in to check-out...great experience. We plan on returning soon. Highly recommend especially if you have a boat.

Hotel is good looking from the outside and rooms have just been refurbished, but beware of tiny double beds in the room instead of queen sized beds. Parking is a problem and parking lots have poor drainage. Breakfast quality is very good with ample room for eating. Watch out though, they close early on weekends (9:30am).

Hotel staff was less than friendly. House keeping refused to clean room and only provided us with extra towels.Staff shut down the pool for an entire day. Entry system into room broke and we had to wait an hour for Maintenance to come fix.

This hotel is right on the water and offers docks for our boat. It also has a ramp on the property to put our boat into the water and storage for our boat trailer. We have been coming to this Best Western for 5 year for scallop season. The rooms are comfortable and the free breakfast is good and convenient.

Nicely remodeled rooms with new A/C units, free continental breakfast is excellent & has new items which now includes scrambled eggs, pancakes, & bacon in addition to what they already had previously (waffles, yogurt, cereal, juice, hard boiled eggs, bagels, doughnuts & danishes). This is the most convenient hotel in crystal river with boat docks, pool, grilles, & scallop cleaning... More
