The room & bathroom were both very clean. They staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was the highlight! They had a bunch of options to choose from and everything tasted great. I will be choosing this hotel chain again for the next time I travel.

This very average motel sits right on the harbour area of Crystal River which is beautiful! We spent some time in the evening in a bar by the water about 20 metres from our room. The view was beautiful and there was some live music. Excellent spot to go snorkelling with the manatees.

A small, very picturesque harbor was only a few yards from our room. This was the most reasonable resort we have ever stayed in--a real bargain! Enjoyed the pool and spa very much, too. Breakfast room was bright and spacious with newspapers provided.

Had to go back for more! This is definitely Florida back in time. Everyone truly appreciate your business and something to do at every turn. The beds are harsh, but relaxation is a 10. Will be returning soon.

The Best Western Crystal River Resort is a must stay if you are heading this way. There are many things to do, but I would suggest checking out the events calendar for the area prior to coming. There are plenty of things to do right here at the hotel itself. You have the swimming pool, hot tub and an ample... More

Rooms were nice just old. Doors didnt lock properly, sliding door for balcony was extremely difficult to open Overall hotel was not up to the usual Best Western quality. Lobby lovely, breakfast a total disappointment. Depends what you are looking for.

This hotel is located on the Crystal River and has boat rides and snorkeling tours to swim with the manatees. The hotel has been updated. Rooms are large and very clean. Comfy beds. Breakfast, microwave and fridge are standard. Outdoor swimming pool overlooks the harbor. Restaurants within walking distance have outdoor dining. Shopping nearby. State parks close and very interesting.

The pool area was very clean and the hot tub was really nice! Great place to go swimming with manatees and then do a little fishing. Even better that when you come in, there is a cleaning station to clean your fish and cook them on the grill outside by the pool area.

We went to swim with the manatees and the hotel was close to where we needed to be. Breakfast looked good but the extreme over ripe bananas stopped me from eating breakfast. I would stay there again but would bring my own pillow. I could not get the a/c unit to a quieter speed and it was disturbing to get... More
