After a very long day of driving we saw the Best Western waterfront sign and decided to pull in (waterfront gets us every time!). The lobby was nicely appointed so I thought the rooms could not be that bad. Front desk could have been a bit friendlier but she did her job (to the minimum...). The room was nice, bed... More

We stayed here for one night and swam with manatee at Birds underwater adventures. Hotel room was clean and service was good. They provided a nice breakfast. They were close to water and walking distance to our manatee tour at Birds. Nice place to stay. Staff was kind and considerate.

I'm a die-hard Hilton Honors member, so when the Crystal River Hampton overbooked, we were debating whether to drive straight thru to Ocala or stay put. We made the right choice. Snuggly situated under grandfather oaks, this place was literally the best seat in the house, considering it was right on top of the river. Immaculately clean rooms, personable staff,... More

I went here with a huge group because they go every year to scallop and upon arrival we were a little upset I know it was a holiday but the boat parking was awful the area to park your boat is pretty small and it was so full people were parking all over the resort grass everywhere with their trailers....

Great location but rooms aren't fairing very well since the renovation 2-3 years ago. Breakfast is good, well done. Staff is better now that a new GM is in place. Price for room quality is not in line. Before the renovation, room rate was 85-90, since update 135 but rooms are not being maintained very well.

Never updated. Why is it they believe we want the same 50's looking hotel. I guess they don't update them so people can re live the hotels hey stayed in when they were kids! Honestly, this is what I call camping. Dirty walls, same old bed skirts and pictures. The sheets were clean but the towels were old and stained.If... More

Great location - right on Kings Bay with a boat launch. Nice breakfast buffet. Well stocked, clean. Rooms are in the middle of remodeling. Our room had been updated, but the AC smelled musty, as it does in most places near the water with high humidity. Room was otherwise clean and comfortable.

We had 4 rooms for the opening of scallop season. The staff was friendly and helpful. The boat dockage was great and so was the breakfast. We enjoyed having the restaurant next door with the live music. The outdoor grill area worked out great when we grilled steaks the first night.
