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

My husband & I just wanted a quiet place to get away for the weekend. This motel was perfect - walking distance to 2 great restaurants plus complimentary breakfast & newspaper each morning. It was so relaxing looking out over the river. A great weekend - we will be back.

We always know what we are getting into when we come here! This is not a 5 star hotel, but that's not why we come here from Clearwater a couple time per year. You cannot beat the friendly, accomodating staff, the clean rooms, free breakfast, free Wifi, grills and a gazebo to prepare and eat meals, great pool area with... More

What a great value to have a room with boat ramp/dock available on property. Very clean and quiet, nice staff. The breakfast area was always taken care of very well. The water is very clear, you will want to go out with high tide.

The clerk at check in was very helpful...our rooms had been given to other guests and she had to relocate us so that we have three rooms near each other. The clerk in the day was very rude and uninformed as to what is available in the local area...stores, restaurants, leisure activities, etc. The maid service was below satisfactory and... More

We booked a room at the Best Western Crystal River Resort since we had an early morning swimming with manatees outing. The weekend we had our manatee swim was extremely busy in the Crystal River/Homosassa area and thus rooms were extremely limited. The room itself was clean and a good size. The furniture and decor was very dated as was... More

This hotel right on the shore's of Kings Bay here in Florida is just a fabulous way to treat yourself to some relaxing down time. Good staff/pool/Jacuzzi, internet, movies & breakfast! It's my home away from home without being overly costly & you have to love that.
