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

we have stayed here 3 previous times and had a decent stay. But this time we ended up in the efficiency and they are in really bad shape. I would personally bulldoze the bldg and start over. The shower/tub had cracked and was covered up. The bathroom was very very small. You could tell that they were covering up mold.... 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.

Hospitable staff, good breakfast, most things in walking distance, first come boat docking, nice pool and hot tub, grounds were maintained well. We had a very enjoyable stay. We also saw fish and manatees right off the docks! Daily fishing charters go out.

This Best Western has that southern island charm. Rooms are not fancy but clean and very accommodating. Microwave, fridge, pool, hot tub and a RIVERWALK! Our check-in was smooth, especially since we made the reservation on hours beforehand. A dive shop next door does boat excursions too. I only wish it was manatee season. Next door is a bar and...

We stayed here for six days. The room was very clean and the staff were really friendly.. The restaurant next to it served good food and was always busy.,Lots to do around the area.although on the main highway it was still very quiet. Swimming pool was very clean and in a good position for the sun bathers.

The hotel was clean but the bathroom was very small and the beds were hard. We read they had a great breakfast in the moring but we didn't agree. The staff was very friendly though. I was glad we only stayed one night though.

Clean, quiet, budget-friendly. They have a nice pool area right on the bay. Perfect for our overnight stay to see the manatees. Breakfast starts at 5:30 so we were able to eat before our 6:15 boat time and still have time to soak in the hot tub with a nice 12 pm checkout time.
