Great location and value for a stay for a Manatee adventure. Nice clean room, pool for kids and a convenient restaurant next door. Great old-school Florida vacation spot. We had to say an extra day as our tour was rained out. The staff helped us find some neat local things to do - the State Park Zoo was really great... More

The location of the hotel was perfect. You can walk to 2 very good restaurants. The hotel backs up to the Marina. We were there for Manatee swimming and walked to the place from the hotel. The room was large, clean, had good décor. The pool and hot tub were both very nice. I would recommend it as a great... More

The hotel location and room were nice enough for the price we paid. Internet worked well. However, upon discovering we had left a telephone charger behind in the room and advising the hotel within hours of our departure, we were disappointed with the response we received. Had to call four times and after several days was told the item could... More

I apologize for service you received when you called about your lost item. I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you. I didn't know about it until you called me and I had to have housekeeping search for it. again, I apologize for the service. Frances Roberts, GM More

My husband and I spent a two night quiet getaway at this Best Western. It had everything you would expect at an older Best Western. It was very clean and comfortable. There's a great restaurant on the property - Crackers- with a tiki bar so you don't have to drive after a few drinks. The hotel and restaurant are directly... More

We travelled to Crystal River for a manatee tour. The hotel has a noon check out time to accommodate guests taking part in the tours; ours ran a little later than I had anticipated, and we arrived back at the hotel 30 minutes after check out time. We were encouraged to take our time and shower before checking out. This... More

The heated pool was a wonderful bonus. It was a chilly spring day but we were able to enjoy the pool. The hotel was very convenient, with restaurants within walking distance and the location was scenic, overlooking the water. The temperature also went down to 40' overnight and the room heating system kept us warm and comfortable.

Rooms ok, great and wonderful staff. Breakfast was amazing with the staff always there to help with a smile. We went for a diving trip and the place was closest you can get to the manatees and also has a dive shop which is awesome. Hot tub was great, nice pool area for kids to play. Close to some great...

$117 for a room that felt like motel 6. Walked in and felt like it was an 80's room. Staff was great but the room brought everything down!! Bathroom husband had trouble fitting in (6ft 172lbs) carpet felt damp and smelled off. Broken tiles in bathroom. King sized bed only had 4 pillows and sheet thickness of a blanket. Not... More

We enjoyed the Best Western and sitting by the docks to watch the activity, but didn't see any manatees. We also enjoyed the great breakfast provided and the room that was for eating. We were able to walk to a nearby restaurant.

Wanted something not too expensive for a couple of nights while doing some scuba diving and manatee tours. I echo what has already been said “Perfectly acceptable basic hotel, staff friendly, accommodations adequate but not fancy, breakfast early with the standard fair for that type of hotel”. My room was clean, everything worked. I would certainly not call this a... More
