Very nice hotel on the water. The rooms are nicely appointed. Perfect for hanging out or going fishing. Book early during scallop season maybe even a year in advance because this place will completely sell out. They have a pool, dock for your boat, plenty of parking, and restaurants close by.

This was an amazing experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean. We stayed in a newly renovated room and it was like staying in a condo. Boat ramp was right there along with a great restaurant. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Best Western in Crystal River is an excellent hotel for the money and location. Rooms are extremely clean as well as the pool and spa areas. They are currently renovating the lobby area which was of no concern. Staff was extremely helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in Crystal River.

I just got back!! We went June 18-20. The hotel was clean, and the beds slept great!! We took our 9 year old grand daughter and she had a blast. The hotel is right on the water. The restaurant next door had wonderful food and a Blues band Friday and Saturday night! We went out on a boat and got... More

While booking through the Harley program, I was led to believe this hotel was bike friendly. We were insulted by the staff and told that they did NOT cater to bikers. This location should not be considered by anyone on a motorcycle.

We had booked at a privately owned 'hotel' and found it to be dreadful. We drove up the road a bit and found this property. The staff was lovely - welcoming and friendly - and found us a spot right away. Our room was immaculate - restful and quiet in spite of the fact that they are some major renovations... More

My family decided to try swimming with the manatees in Crystal River, FL. We could have driven the hour and a half from Brandon, FL the same day, but with a 10 year old and a 6:30am meet time it would have turned the 1st part of our day into a nightmare. We opted to drive up the night before... More

This hotel was perfect for boaters and/or folks who want to go boating, specifically, scuba and skin diving, or manatee watching. They accommodated our late departure and arrival, as our tours overlapped the check out times. Very nice restaurants nearby, and nice pool/spa for relaxation.

As always staying there right on the water at Kings Bay with a hot-tub, pool & beautiful grounds can't be beat for location, quality & the fabulous staff! They are also next door to a TIKI BAR & several restaurant choices, although this time we had a pizza delivered & since this was a surprise for me; what can I... More
