This hotel is a gem. Rooms are very clean and well furnished, beds are very nice, and the facility and staff are top notch. There's a small outdoor pool and a business center, along with the breakfast area. For the price, hard to see how one could do better; it would be a place I'd be happy to stay at...

This is the second time we have visited this Hotel before a Manatee experience. It was even better than the first time ! Great service, great rooms, and the breakfast is ready early (before 6:00 AM) for those of us going to see the Manatees. I highly recommend this hotel if you are going to see the Manatees

I booked this hotel because we had an early swim with the manatees and it worked very well. Our swim was for 6:30AM and the front desk staff was super nice to let us check out later than normal. The location was about 5 minutes from our swim. The breakfast was adequate and began at 6am, so we actually could...

This hotel is in a great location. When we arrived to check in we were greeted with 'welcome back'. This time we did not stay in the 2 bedroom suite and really miss the jetted tub. The room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was ok with many choices and the staff were very polite.

I arrived at this hotel at 2:30 AM and the staff was pleasant and welcoming. The hotel has the same layout as several other Holiday Inn Expresses I have stayed at- clean, well-organized. Everyone here was as nice as they could be.

I always look for a Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express when I travel. I have never been disappointed with one that I have stayed in yet. This one was certainly no exception. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous from the time we checked in until the time we left 4 days later. It was very clean and nicely...

We booked our stay for two nights ahead of a cruise. We decided to spend time here to see the Manatee. We were not disappointed. We saw lots of Manatee but the unexpected pleasure was the staff at the Holiday Inn Express. Very helpful, with lots of information and recommendations. The breakfast was also very good and the hotel very...

Great customer service! They gave us an upgraded room and late checkout. Complementary breakfast was open early for those doing manatee swim. Great cheap stay if going to swim with manatees. Highly recommend!

Very clean, free wifi, decent complimentary breakfast with variety of options and friendly staff. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone planning an overnight stay. It's around the corner from a variety of restaurants and close to manatee fun!

We were in Crystal River to dive with Blue Heaven River Tours (thank you again, Captain Wyn!) and needed a place for the night. This was centrally located and easy to find, with plenty of parking, clean rooms, very nice staff and a delicious breakfast. Very comfortable bed, too!
