“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This hotel is located near downtown (such as it is) and on the water, There is a boat launch which can be used by those staying here; it also serves as a starting point for "manatee tours". The breakfast is adequate; the woman who supervises the breakfast area is efficient and very helpful. There was some late outside noise during our stay but the beds were comfortable and the hot tub was a welcome break at night. We didn't eat at the next-door restaurant (Crackers) but apparently it's popular.

First time staying here and I was extremely impressed. We stayed here to go on the manatee snorkeling trips and it was awesome. Everything is convenient, every staff member in the gift shop, front desk, and dive shop are helpful and friendly. Crackers resteraunt had great food for great prices, we only had to walk across the parking lot to get on the snorkel boat. Town is quiet and so is the hotel. Very clean. I will definitely be back!!

Very consistent year after year after year, and in the center of it all. Park your car and you may never have to leave the area during your stay. Plenty of dining options nearby, excellent diving/snorkeling opportunities around the corner, located on Kings Bay, close/outdoor live music, on-stie pool and hot tub, clean rooms, excellent staff and a free continental breakfast!

Tried to get in another hotel that was booked, advised us to try the Best Western and glad we did. This is an older hotel but is CLEAN!!! Situated on the Crystal River, our room had a view of the water. Got upgraded to a room with jacuzzi and balconey, what a deal :-) Breakfast is included but is very basic, If we had been staying more than one day would have gone somewhere else for breakfast. Location is great, near all the local attractions.

We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. We brought our dog this time which was very convenient. We were able to slip our boat and eat dinner (to go from Crackers- not dog friendly) on the boat and hear the band at the tiki bar. It is the best place to stay in Crystal River. We will be back!
