My family and I stayed here during spring break and was looking for a place that wasn't too expensive (we had just spent alot on a very nice hotel in Daytona). We were swimming with the manatees so we needed something close for a 6:00 appointment. #1 I slept great. The beds are find. The room was very very clean.... More

We stayed two nights to explore the area, and this was a great choice. The room was very clean, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the beds comfortable. There was a small refrigerator and microwave in the room, and the motel also offered continental breakfast. We were close to the various trails and state park sites, and it provided economical...

My wife and I stayed here for three days mostly because I had points to use up and we were planning a lot of activities in the region. The facility manager was polite and brought us towels to use by the pool as we lounged there reading and returned our shoes we left there absentmindedly. When we were blocked in... More

My wife and I and our dog stayed at the Econo Lodge, Crystal River for 7 nights. It is the only major hotel brand offering pet freindly rooms in the immediate Crystal River area. On the surface, the hotel does not present a very good image of what it has to offer for a week long pet freindly stay. The... More

I can't really say I was surprised by the quality of this motel. I new going in that at $60 a night it wasn't going to be 4-star luxury but I found it to be pretty run down and dirty. There was a large half dead insect on the floor when we arrived. The sink was corroded and the TV... More

I was actually quite frightened to stay here, but went because a large group of old friends were getting together for scallop season in Crystal River. It is definitely affordable and close to the ramp for boaters wanting to enjoy the beautiful waters of the area. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't AS horrible as some of the reviews... More

To start, the rooms are extremely outdated. The phone in my room did not work- when I spoke to the owner he said it would be too costly to repair and that there was other rooms without working phones as well....really?! The bed was painfully hard! I felt like Fred Flintstone sleeping here! The tv was an archaic early 80's... More

First room the TV did not work properly. Second room the TV did not work properly and the room was not cleaned. Third room was OK but needs a good bug spraying. Looks like mold under the sink as well. (Left) The manager of the place seemed a little concerned, not, and said their were a lot of things that... More
