The rooms were large and comfortable with nice Jacuzzi tubs. The best part was the unparalleled hospitality of the Inn keepers. This was the most fun I have had... More

The inn is a little outdated but very comfortable and beautiful. We stayed in the Colorado room which was not to my taste but well decorated. Hot water takes a while but it gets there. The breakfast was great, if you are celiac ask them to accommodate.

I stayed at the Crystal River Inn this past weekend and although I have stayed with you twice in the past, I was sorely disappointed this time...even though I spent more money this time on a room which for two days cost me $400. My daughter and I came on Friday and stayed in the blanco suite. All I can... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Crystal River Inn. It was a wonderful experience. Cathy and her staff catered to our every need and made us feel like family. Our room was quaint and very comfortable. As a matter of fact, the bed felt like I was sleeping at home. The breakfast was hot, fresh and very... More

We really loved many aspects of the Crystal River Inn. The service was fantastic, incredibly welcoming and delicious home-cooked breakfasts. I loved the overall atmosphere of the place and the room we saw a glimpse of on the left hand side as you walked into the main building was absolutely stunning. The parking is free behind the building and it's... More

While we only stayed at the Crystal River Inn for less than 12 hours, it was delightful. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, the room was clean and fresh, and the bed was super soft and cosy - just what we needed after a 16 hour flight from Sydney to Dallas. Paula, our host when we arrived, treated us... More

Had a great time at this adorable little bed and breakfast. We had a murder mystery weekend planned with family and friends for my brothers 30th birthday and the owners and staff were friendly, attentive and very accommodating! We all enjoyed our stay very much and can't wait to come back 😊
