We stayed here 6 nights while visiting family in Crystal River. From the time we walked in to the day we left, the staff was extremely pleasant. The rooms were very nice and clean. Beds were comfortable. We would most definitely stay here again. VERY nice!!!

This place was clean. The staff were very helpful and we would stay here again. We are typically condo people and I found this room to be comfortable and roomy. Breakfast was above average for hotel breakfast.

This place is nearby River Ventures. The organization where we went manatee snorkling with. We went snorkling at 6AM and they fixed us a late check out so we could take a hot shower after the cold water. The lady at the reception was soooo friendly and helpful. We also went to a awesome thai restaurant nearby (at the big... More

If you are going down for scalloping/fishing in Crystal River Florida this is an excellent choice. It is close to restaurants and marinas. It is on a main highway and is easy to navigate anywhere from this location. The hotel is a very nice Holiday Inn Express. It is well appointed and was clean and well run. Parking was plentiful....

My wife and I won a scalloping trip from River Safaris on Facebook. We needed a place to stay so we booked this hotel through the River Safaris website. The hotel was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and the room offered us more than expected. The room came with a mini fridge, microwave and Kuerieg machine. The free... More

Great location near downtown area. Beautiful lobby with high ceilings and ornate decorating. Staff all very friendly and accomodating. Rooms clean with lots of space. Morning breakfast was nicely done with hot foods. Even though it was crowded the noise level was minimal. We would go back.

The hotel was great we had a 6 a.m. dive. We were hoping for a quick breakfast before they we're open for breakfast. Unfortunately Dee would not assist us. She finally did give us milk. Birds Underwater was a great dive company!

We stayed for one night in Crystal River for a swim with the manatees tour. We were greeted warmly both when making reservation and upon arrival to the hotel. The Holiday Inn Express was a perfect location for our tour which was 5 minutes away. It appears to be new;very clean with modern decor. Breakfast good and coffee also. Would... More

This hotel was a last minute find for us. We stayed here on Monday, June 20, 2016. The front desk attendant, Jennifer, was helpful and "wickedly" funny! She was great. We had a nice size room that was comfortable with all the amenities, including refrigerator and microwave. Everything was clean and worked fine and the room was quiet. The beds... More
