It was one of most affordable sleepover in Crystal river that we found. It was clean. Breakfast is very, very modest. WiFi didn't work all the time. I would expect it cheaper, but considering there are not many other decent options it was a good choice. Staff is not too much professional.

Now this is not the Waldorf but I've seen rooms in the Waldorf that might have had more granduer but less nuts and bolts - it is clean and comfortable - pity about the smoking policy everyone smoked even the no smoking notices were ignored - a shame. For the price you can't go wrong but don't expect top of... More

I'm writing this review for all the people who book on sites like Hotwire or Priceline and end up at Econolodge. It's not Taj Mahal, but it's OK for a nigh, especially sincevit was only $40 on Hotwire. The place is old but rooms and pool were clean. Everything looked freshly painted and all the appliances worked. The bed was... More

Everything else was booked😝. I refuse to stay here again bc it just seemed side of the road motel and not a hotel. It's very inexpensive but I'd pay a little more to stay in a nicer hotel next trip. If your looking for a roadside cheap motel then you'll love it here.

Hotwire deal. About $40. Clean and close to the manatees. Bed was cheap but so was the room. Breakfast was minimal. TV was CRT old and cable signal was weak. more than good enough for the money. We'd stay again.

I stayed here for two nights so I could do the Manatee swim and the Homosassa Wildlife Park. I arrived late and due to previous reviews wasn't expecting too much. I noticed a sweaty/feet smell in the room, and opened the windows. It seemed to subside so I though it had been gotten rid of. I had to wake up... More

My fiance and I rented a room through priceline for $50/night for 2 nights... Upon checking in, the front desk said that we had a double bed smoking room (never specified room type on priceline). We entered our room and found the window open (obviously to air out the smell of smoke and musk), old bedding, patched up walls, and... More

Priceline two rooms, 5 people. They gave us one small bed in each room for 5 adults!!! The manager said tough! Too bad! He laughed at us and said he doesn't honor Priceline number of beds in a room or how many people you tell Priceline! I had to sleep on the filthy floor! The rooms are a dump. All... More

Honestly, the worst hotel I've stayed in. I rented two rooms off priceline. They gave me a smoking room with one queen bed and a non-smoking room with one queen bed! Dirty, smelly and disgusting is the proper adjectives to describe this hotel. We had to go the Kmart next door and buy blow up beds and comforters for our... More

If your biggest driver for a night's stay in Crystal River is budget, this will do fine. It's not immaculate, but its located in a pretty safe area and its convenient to pretty much everything in Crystal River. You park right in front of your room (old motel style), so that adds some safety-security to your stay. Don't expect plush... More
