My stay here was while I was working on disaster assistance in the Crystal River, and surrounding, community. That work was made much easier by the professionalism and kindness of everyone working here at this awesome lodging. However, the breakfast experience made our days much easier and sent us out ready to work in less than optimal conditions. Dee was... More

Stayed here due to a flood in our home. We moved to the hotel after staying in the Plantation which has a 3 1/2 star rating for 3 days. The Holiday Inn is by far a better place to stay. It is newer and more modern than the Plantation. It even has a small Keurig coffee maker, free cookies, 24... More

The woman who greeted us was very helpful and professional. Since we're IHG platinum elite customers she had upgraded us to a nice 2 King suite. Huge and more than necessary, but thoughtful and generous due to our stays. This chain is one of our favorites as they are new or relatively new, clean, quiet and spacious. My husband stays... More

Based upon several T/A reviews, I decided to book this hotel in Crystal River for a snorkeling adventure with the manatees. The hotel, rooms, and grounds were immaculate. The hotel greatly exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend staying here. The staff, especially Jennifer the Night Desk person, were exceptionally nice and helpful. Overall, the room was larger and... More

This was a good experience, easy check in, really clean and modern rooms and a great breakfast. The manager was very helpful. My room card was de-magnitized and he got me a new card quick! I only stayed one night but I'd go back for sure!

We only needed a one night stay, so our room cost more than if you stay for 2 nights. We had 2 king beds which was nice and our room was clean and quiet. The pool was refreshing. We enjoyed the breakfast.
