This is a great hotel to stay at. I stay at a lot of different hotels and this is my favorite. Every time i stay here i get great service .They treat me as if i'm part of their family,Going so far as to remembering my name, and shaking my hand.Even when i work in orlando or tampa i still stay here and drive to work.The rooms are always clean and ready when i get here,the ac is just the right temp. I love to scubadive, so when im not working i stay here because the location is perfect for diving.

Our family of 5 came to visit Crystal River, celebrate a birthday and swim with the manatees. We are used to Orlando hotels with top-notch accommodations and competitive rates and this property easily met our expectations. The room was well appointed and very clean. The early am breakfast was tasty & offered many item choices to please all of us!

Perhaps the most impressive element of service at this property was the staff. Everyone we encountered at the front desk (great job Jason & Ali) was friendly and endeavored to meet our needs with much enthusiasm both over the phone and upon arrival. The general manager, Mr. Sadiq was truly outstanding. He assisted us in a room re-assignment to provide a more comfortable space for our family and made a point to greet other guests as well and take a genuine interest in their satisfaction. Our children cannot wait to go back to the Holiday Inn Express & we have to agree that it will be our only choice for a guaranteed great Crystal River getaway. As Priority Club members, we have stayed at many a Holiday Inn property and this location definitely delivers what it promises.

This is a gem in Citrus County, FL. There are only a few choices in the area and this should be your top pick. It is only 1 year old, is clean, modern design, great amenities, great staff. Do not waste your time looking at any of the other choices in the area - this is your BEST choice. A great rate, new, clean, friendly, great breakfast, free WiFi, pool and a neat modern design. This is the ONLY decent hotel in all of Citrus County.

This is definately the newest (and probably the nicest) hotel in the area. Very clean, nice rooms with fridge. good location, but.. while we were there, my boyfriend was taking a shower and the water mysteriously stopped. He couldn't get it to come back on.. We called the front desk, and they said that they would have someone come right up to fix it. We waited, and waited... and called again. The front desk clerk said that he wasn't sure if it was "hotel wide" or not, and could not do anything. Needless to say, we ended up having to go out without showers.. after swimming at the beach all day!! It was pretty gross. I don't know if this was the hotel's fault necessarily, but the customer service involved was majorly lacking. Another thing, the breakfast is just OK - the other reviews I had read on here made it seem to me that it was going to be more than it actually was, I guess. Eggs not edible... I'm not sure if I should recommend this hotel or not. I guess if you can get it for a good deal, go for it, because it is very clean and the rooms are nice. I just recommend that if something happens with your water, demand compensation (like I should've done).

We had an excellent experience at this Hotel. The staff was not only friendly and helpful but went out of their way to take care of us!! Five stars for the help! The rooms are like new and the breakfast delicious and complimentary. It is a home away from home. We would certainly stay here again!

We booked in here (two bedroom suite) for two nights. It was a delight. I do not have one complaint.

Our suite was really comfortable and very well laid out. The breakfast was fab and I will always recall my first ever experience of 'biscuits with gravy' at this hotel. Delicious.

We took advantage of the free internet, laptops and printer in the little office room to research local boat-trip companies and restaurants and printed off directions all free of charge.

We had to leave one night early as one of our girls was poorly and the hotel were very understanding and we did not incur any charges. They were genuinely concerned and helpful.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
