Very clean and spacious rooms (especially if you are over 3 meters tall you don't have to worry hitting the ceiling).

The breakfast was very good and the reception was very welcoming.

We would definitely return and recommend to others.

This is a fantastic Holiday Inn Express. The staff especically Imran were friendly and helpful; catered to our every need. The breakfast overseen by Mary was the best we have had in a long time at several different chains. I highly recomended this hotel to any one staying in the Crystal River area.

Probably the cleanest & newest hotel in Crystal River. Nothing much in this town - the Holiday Inn Express is your typical & relatively new hotel. Breakfast not as great as other Express no waffle maker but had one of those single roller belt pancake makers. Hotel lost power when we were there for about 6 hours - no biggie just went out for a awhile. Otherwise staff was great.

From checkin to check out the staff made this experience. We were visiting my grandparents with 2 small children and the staff got to know our kids and made them comfortable, greeting them or offering fresh cookies. Breakfast was wonderful and well stocked. Rooms were spotless. Anything that we needed was provided quickly and pleasantly. Even the housekeeping staff seemed happy and nice. 2 suggestions....paper plates are better than styrafoam. Some fruit other than bananas would be good...like 2 choices. Great stay. Will be back.

This hotel deserves all the kudos it has been getting! The staff are friendly and helpful -- good dinner tips. And...the breakfast is great for an HI-Express! The free wi-fi and pool are superb. The room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable for our two day stay. [Most Holiday Inn Express hotels we have stayed at use disposable plates and cutlery for the breakfast, so this was not a surprise nor did it detract at all from our stay in Crystal River.]

We visited Crystal River for manatee snorkeling and stayed two nights at this hotel. Wifi, parking and good breakfast included. The staff was really friendy and serviceminded giving me the (positive) feeling that I was staying at a small bed and breakfast. The only thing that was a bit odd was that breakfast was served with disposable plastic/styrofoam plates, cups and cuttlery.

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor, and the great reviews are well deserved. Family of four arrived early afternoon, before check in time, weary from two days on the road, for an early manatee tour the next morning. Imran welcomed us at the front desk, let us check in early and gave us additional information about the upcoming manatee tour. He is an absolute treasure! He recommended an excellent seafood restaurant (see review of Peck's Old Port Cove), printed directions and even called for a reservation, as it was Father's Day. Excellent hotel, breakfast earlier than standard hours to accommodate early tours, spacious room with two king beds, great linens, very clean, new and modern. This hotel changed my opinion of HIE! At checkout, Paige was friendly and helpful, as well. This is an excellent hotel with an exceptional staff. Highly recommend this one!
