Other than the AC not being adequate, the overall stay was worth the price. Boat ramp and dining facilities worth the trip during scallop season, we would stay there again. The staff was attentive and for a family trip well worth it.

We stayed here just one night, to visit relatives, and found the motel to be pretty popular with the boating crowds, especially during Scalloping season. It is an older BW but still clean with ample free continental breakfast. Front desk ladies were helpful and friendly. There is restaurant next door, plus this BW has it's own boat slips, nice pool,... More

Not as good as before. Room musty, parking attendant very rude, boat ramp is a problem with people getting in and out. Stay at hotel every year for the past 3 years and it appears to be going down hill instead of uphill or remaining the same.

The lobby is clean (and misleading) the staff goes out of their way with kindness and are accommodating. The LOCATION is however the best thing this place has to offer, it is on the banks of the river, and the nightly fee includes a boat slip, it is especially helpful during scallop season. There is a Restaurant right next door,... More

My stay was awesome. the place to stay if you are interested in putting your boat in the river and going out to the gulf of Mexico for collecting scallops! Francis has been there as long as I can remember and does an excellent job to accommodate her guest staying there. Waffles for breakfast with peanut butter!

This hotel was located right on the banks of the river and had many boats and captains ready to charter your on-water experience for you. We went scalloping and used Capt. Mark, who not only helped us get our fill but brought us to the scenic beauty of the area, where we enjoyed water sports and experiencing the many fresh... More

Rooms are a little dated with window unit type air-conditioning in a humid environment (not highly effective). Breakfast unremarkable but nice they had it. If you want to be on the water walking distance from Crackers (nice place to eat/drink) and manatee tours this is the place to stay as there is not much else to choose from in Crystal... More

The front desk was friendly and checked us in quick. The breakfast was pretty meager but as expected. Fruit, breads, hot cakes, and yogurt....no meat. The property itself is showing signs of age. My biggest issue was the air conditioning in the rooms was insufficient. I spent half the night sweating and the kids room wasn't any better. Crackers next... More

Spent just one night (by design) but was very happy with everything about the resort, I was clean, quiet, close to everything, had a nice pool, and really nice view form the small marina. Did not eat the continental breakfast but it looked good
