“One night stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We stayed one night here on our way from Orlando back to New Orleans. Close to I10 so easy to find and only a couple of miles on a busy straight road from the town centre. Reception were, helpful the room was clean and tidy, and complementary breakfast was ok. Hotel was peaceful although looked pretty full. Across the street was Crystal River Seafood, which was good and there were plenty of other restaurants etc just on the road into town. Cheap and cheerful.

We only stayed one night in a King Room. The room was clean and cozy. The bed was comfy and so were the pillows. Breakfast was good, limited choice but enough. Close to the highway to continue your travels. Would stay again.

We stayed in this hotel based on the reviews and the price, for 1 night.
However, this was the worst experience I have EVER had in a hotel, and I travel alot!!!! Sheets didn't fit the bed, revealing old filthy mattresses. Spider crawling on the bed. Pervasive smell of marijuana . Unsavory looking people lurking around.
BUT, the worst thing was BED BUG BITES all over my body the next day!!!!!
I'm itching so bad from them and it's been a week since I stayed there..it's absolutely miserable! Listen to this review and pay a little extra to stay in a better hotel. This one was HORRIBLE!!!

Dear Calicaro,
We are extremely sorry you did not have a pleasant stay. Our goal is to never have a guest leave unhappy, and I am disappointed this was not your case. My team and I believe the guest's experience does not end when they leave so I will try to contact you to make things right and to learn the specifics to provide better service for future guests. Rest assured that your concerns are not taken lightly and that our property is treated by a nationally-recognized pest control agency so any issues will be solved immediately. Also, desk clerks have been re-trained to offer guests a different room if they are not satisfied in their current room and to work with them until they are happy. I personally invite you to retry our hotel to show to you that your experience is not typical, and we are committed to provide excellent service. Thank you for helping us improve.

The receptionist Amanda did all she could, and asked also if we would like to see the room before we checked in! We were very glad for the good service, but all good things disappeared when we had the un-serviceminded morninghost in the breakfast room. Before end-time 9.00 most of the food was already put away, and she was not in the mood, only with difficulty to bring something out again - took ie the coffee away, without asking if wanted a cup more before she took things away :-(
