This was our second stay in as many years during scallop season . This is a family & pet-friendly hotel right on Kings Bay in Crystal River. We love it because it is reasonably priced and there is a dock for the boat. Also free continental breakfast is nice for a quick bite before heading out on the boat for... More

My children and I stayed at the Best Western at Crystal River last weekend (Fri 29 Aug and Sat 30 Aug). We checked in about 9 PM and put our boat in the water at the motel's boat dock. Most importantly it is right on motel property and in the corner of King's Bay so it is an easy load... More

If you desire to stay on the water, this hotel is a prime location. However, the rooms are quite dated and not up to par with more modern facilities. I have stayed here for a weekend escape from the Tampa Bay area in years past and also presently when traveling through the area on a business trip if I have... More

I was a little Leary... But gave some of the reviews the benefit of doubt...so go with your gut feeling! I was supposedly upgraded to a better room with balcony and water view in building 3..what a joke!!! The room had a horrible smell, the balcony overlooked a building and way off in the distance you could see some water...... More

we rented a boat and hang on the river all afternoon. we really enjoy seeing the manatees and snorkeling in the river.. Everyone should do it at least once in their life.. Very good restaurant as well.. Try Dan's crab house .. fresh food and 6 miles away from the best western

We came to scallop and fish. Our room was extremely clean. We stayed in building 2 upstairs and it was very quiet, which is what I wanted. It was a Sunday night, so I'm sure that helped. The ramp and docks are well maintained and perfect for fishing or scalloping trips out to the river or the gulf. The staff... More

This is a great place to stay especially for famiies. Access to water is very easy if you have a boat. Access to dive shop and a great restaurant is at arms length. We stay there every year for summer fun!!

Just spent 4 days at Crystal River Resort. Very friendly staff & didn't get phased with any request even though place was fully booked over weekend. Good value for money. We'll appointed. Breakfast was great and kicked off the day on the right foot.

We love to come here. We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate our 30th anniversary and had a great time! It is very easy to bring your boat and they have a nice place to dock and leave it there during your stay. We had an air conditioner go out in the early evening and the security guy came in... More

This hotel is right across the street from Idaho Falls. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the falls. The spa is indoors and it is beautiful along with the gym. We would have stayed another night if we had time.
