We were very skeptical about staying here but we were happy we did. Being in the area and usually Crystal River we decided to check it out. The motel is old but our room was clean and the a/c strong. Only a window until but we turned it on, went to eat and returned to a cool room. TV had numerous channels and the beds were clean and comfortable. They have a pool and next door is Shrimp Landing. The bar beside served all the food to go from there. We will stay there again for a relaxing get away weekend.
Having worked at a tripadvisor top(#1 rated Crystal River restaurant, I became aware of what social media has so badly needed for the hospitality business. I was so pleased to find this Motel on a last minute plan to re-plan Thanksgiving week. I have never stayed there all the 20 plus years being a CR3NUC blue collar brat growing up. This hidden gem is worth a try for yourself if ya stumble through Levy, Citrus and Marion counties. Owners are so up for any INN KEEPERS WORST NIGHTMARE and are very much doing everything they can as a small non chain to handle our local needs with out the loss of the personal touch that is being edged out by social media deals, promotions and complaints' guests of 3rd party booking can't resolve in a timely manner online. Shop local, cash is always king, and take a moment to catch a breathe while you write a review. look forward to keeping this HONEYHOLE for myself while traveling for work and play.…
Someone said on another review.... It is what it is. Agreed. Also some one said it needs updating. I've been coming here for two years. It has improved so much I gave it a better review. I had come here simply for convenience. Updates on going.... So much better!! Remote AC. Remote TV. Didn't have before. Shower has great pressure. It's not a 5 star hotel. It is a motel. Not fancy. It's great for where it is. Clean, cold for summer in FL. Price is fine to me. Owners very nice. Not a sleezy place at all.
The room is very nice and clean. It seems to have been recently updated. The floors, tv and ac are new. I booked for two weeks while waiting for my home to be ready. It was a last minute check-in. The owners were very kind and accommodating. It's a quiet and safe location. The wifi could be better but most motels are like that. Otherwise the room had everything I needed. For a small fee I was able to have my pets with no hassle.
first off the place is old but looks decent from the outside, we checked in and the rate was $34.99 but if you want to add your spouse it is an additional $10.00, (REALLY?) When we checked in the owner told us the heater did not work so she gave us a small space heater which did not warm up the room, around 9 PM a friend of mine stopped in to see me for 20 minutes, when I checked out the owner questioned me as to who visited me at night, (LIKE IT IS ANY OF HER BUSINESS I PAID FOR FOR THE ROOM) she then told me she does not run a business like that, I asked her like what and she said people stopping by at night, stay away from this dump drive a few more minute into Crystal River and get a better room at the same rate.
