“Very clean, nice room, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012 via mobile

Stayed on our way thru town. Very clean hotel, great room and staff was very helpful! They gave us a late checkout since we had a manatee swim without question. Would recommend!

We had a late check in so didn't have the time to enjoy the pool. The room was nice and comfortable. Our tour of the manatees was only a five minute drive from the hotel so that gave us time to eat before our tour. (River Venures - see review.) No compliants. The lady who checked us in was very friendly.

The staff here is just great and SO helpful when it comes to the customers who are there to swim with the manatees! We had the early morning tour, and the clerk said it would be no problem for us to leave our stuff there and come back for a shower afterward. Even though we had to be at the river at 6:00, the hotel staff sets up breakfast early and we were able to eat a great hot breakfast (for free) before we left!

Otherwise, the room was clean, the bathroom so much larger than the Hilton we had just left in St Petersberg - and the price less than half as much! I thought it was a good deal for the money!

This is a very nice hotel. Good variety for breakfast. Friendly staff, willing to make recommendations for where to eat. My only complaint is there is only 4 lounge pool chairs for a very large hotel.

This is the second year in a row we've stayed at this holiday inn for a few days while we snorkel with manatees. Its very close to the dive shops and boats on Crystal River where you can snorkel with Manatees. The hotel staff is friendly, rooms are new and clean, free internet and a free breakfast. The breakfast isn't the most amazing but I like that they offer it.

We were there for 5 days this Feb and had a great stay, We will be back next winter!

Nice clean accomodations with a nice breakfast. The first night we had problems with our door locking on the outside. The next am the manager had someone up to look at it. They moved us to a larger room so we would not have to hang around all day while they fixed our door. Very nice people at the front desk (day & night)!

We stayed here the night before our manatee swim.The hotel has a good location about 10 minutes or less from the pier that our boat was docked at.There are also a number of fast food places as well as an late night dunkin donuts down the street which we treated our kids at--Hawaii does not have a dunkin donuts!
The hotel staff was very welcoming especially the lady working the front desk as we checked in late.We also had to call the hotel to get driving directions and the staff was very patient and helpful.
The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are comfortable and the hotel was quiet.We all had a good nights sleep.
The breakfast that comes with the room included cereals,yogurt,cold boiled eggs.Hot sausage was available.Pastries and toast/english muffins as well as bananas.Juice /milk and coffee were also available.This was more than adequate for our family and very convenient as we were rushing to get to our manatee swim.
There is an outside pool but it was too cold for us to use.
We requested a late check out and without hesitation the front desk granted us a 2pm late check out which was a life saver as we were able come back from our swim and take hot showers and get dressed.
Overall a great stay and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a late check out if you need -also priority members i believe are guaranteed a late check ou...
