Based on other reviews, we knew this hotel would be 'basic' and a bit frumpy. But the location was totally worth it to us! We had a 6am manatee snorkeling trip booked in the area, and needed nearby lodging. Room 102 was an unexpected bonus - the large window and patio face the river and the sunset over the water!!...

A group of us went to Crystal River for the weekend to swim with the manatees. I booked our tour and hotel online. There is a great restaurant/bar onsite. We sat outside and watched the sunset. The tour was incredible. The hotel was comfortable and the staff was friendly. We will definitely do it again.

Great experience. Conveniently located. Everything you could possibly need located on the property. The rooms are slightly outdated, which gives it part of the feel... They remind me of the lake homes back home. But they are very clean. The staff was amazing and very friendly. View is awesome. We sat outside and watched manatees and various wildlife right from...

Hotel is a bit run down but if your there to swim with manatees, this is the place. Dive shop and boat ramp that you can walk to right on the hotel grounds and the staff were very nice. You can rent kayaks and a pontoon boat or do a tour with the dive shop. All I can say is... More

It has gone thru several ownership changes and name changes over the years and it's latest name is The Port Hotel and Marina.. "We" are a Scuba Diving social club and usually bring a fairly large...

This rooms have definitely seen better days. It was clean and smelling of bleach so i was confident in its cleanliness. However, very dated and if it was renovated would be a gold mine! Everything in the room did work including the TV, air and heat. We weren't in the room much though because there was so much to see... More

this place was so bad we checked out without staying and had paid in advance on Expedia. No hot water. It is so bad: broken blinds, broken hair dryer plug in, looked like someone tried to kick door in. My advice is to give up the view and stay in town. Two girls at check in/out were very nice

The hotel is in a beautiful location right on the water. As for the hotel Itself I hate to use the word dump but that's what it is. Everywhere you look something needs to be cleaned, painted, repaired, or replaced. The whole place needs updating. We had two air conditioners, one worked one didn't. The one that did leaked water...

We love this property. The staff is awesome, service is excellent, you never have to leave. The Manatee are all around in the Winter months and early spring. They have adult tiki bar, a restaurant family friendly with pool tables, games, food, music. The owner has plans to remodel the hotel and a lot of work has been done. We... More
