“Wonderful Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Decided to stay for two nights at this hotel in Crystal River. We had a wonderful time and the room definitely met our expectations. The staff was friendly and always said Hello when passing you in the hallways. The breakfast was an added bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

We were very happy with our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Crystal River. We stayed just one night -- between a dive and a snorkel excursion with the manatee -- and couldn't have asked for a more convenient, clean hotel for the price. Breakfast in the morning was surprisingly good; the wi-fi service was excellent; and the staff were very accomodating -- giving us an extra-late check-out so that we could shower after our snorkeling trip before hitting the road to come home. Would definitely stay here again.

We were able to get side-by-side rooms on a sold out weekend, due to the Manatee Festival. While we were disappointed we did not have the adjoinging rooms we requested, the hotel was very nice. It was very clean and the front desk staff was terrific - lots of great suggestions!

Green Features: Loved the green feel of the hotel - lots of recycling bins everywhere - great!

Hotel had a reasonable price. We got a discount when booking a manatee tour with River Ventures. Able to take a shower after manatee tour. Nice room. Close to manatee tours. Good service. Had good wi-fi.

Spent a couple of days to swim with the manatee. Location is convenient and property is clean, appears to be new. Very helpful staff at check in. Lots of nice restaurants and activities near by. We were pleasantly surprised and would return to this property if we find ourselves in the area.

My family and I, five of us in two rooms, stayed here for three nights - we were attending a funeral. The staff, including the general manager, went out of their way to ensure we were as comfortable as possible. The hotel grounds, rooms and common areas were always neat and clean - a printer issue in the business center was resolved quickly. The biscuits and gravy on the breakfast buffet were delicious - would like to have seen more fruit, including citrus (hey, it's Florida, right?), but the food was good, replenished often and any messes were cleaned up immediately. Plenty of tables and hot coffee, too! And, the price was right. I will stay here whenever I am in the area!! Thanks for the clean, comfortable beds and for providing a welcome haven during our sorrowful trip.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor - elevator was a little slow, but who was in a hurry?
