I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies here. Went with a group to snorkel with the manatees and this motel is where we were booked. I don't care if I had to drive 30 miles to stay somewhere else....because I would. Marge at the front desk was the only redeeming quality we could find. The rooms were horrible. The front lock on our door didn't work. The pillow cases were stained. There was mold under the bathroom sink and around the ceiling. Most of the bedroom ceilings looked like they were ready to cave in. It's funny....Marge told us that they had done lots of improvements in the 10 years since the new owners bought the place...but we didn't see it. Seriously, find a Holiday Inn or another name brand close to Crystal River and you'll have a much better time.
