We had a very nice stay at this hotel and really enjoyed being right on the Crystal River. We really liked being able to barbecue our dinner right next to the water. Overall a wonderful experience to stay at this hotel. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay there!!!

This is our 4th trip to Crystal River to swim/dive and we always stay at the Best Western. Their staff is friendly and courteous, day or night, and the rooms are well kept.

i agree with the other reports. although the hotel has older decor the location and pool more than compensate. We stayed 2 nights in April. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was spotless with 2 very comfortable beds and pillows. The hotel is right on the water front and next to the dive shop offering manatee tours, diving and boat hire. The adjacent restaurant and tikki bar is very good. What could be better.

It is located in a great location…right on the water. We were welcomed by friendly staff. The rooms were average size and had extra amenities like a fridge. This was great as we had a place to put a few perishables. BW was in walking distance to the quaint town and a hop, skip and jump away from Adventure Diving. We enjoyed hanging out by the pool and eating supper in the outdoor grilling/ eating area. At breakfast, there was something for all of us but must say the waffles were a hit. After our manatee tour, we checked and were on our way. We would stay again!

Room Tip: Close to the pool if you have kids.

We just returned from 2 days at this hotel. We had one roon with 2 queen beds and one king room that was handicap accessible with a roll in shower. First off and most important..ROOMS WERE EXTREMELY CLEAN!! BATHROOMS WERE SPARKLING!! Sheets and comforters on all beds were new, clean and of good quality. Beds themselves were very comfortable and slept well. Everything worked properly and carpets were clean also. Breakfast was above average, with boiled eggs, yogurts, fruit, coffee, tea, bagels, danishes, oatmeal and waffles. Breakfast attendant was friendly and on the ball with restocking and keeping everything fresh!! Pool and hot tub areas were clean and well kept. The handicapped accessible room had a huge bathroom with all ceramic tiles and a huge pulsating showerhead. My cousin stayed in this room and loved it. All-in-all, we loved this place and will return!!!

First and foremost, the people here were great. Everyone we interacted with was genuinely friendly and welcoming. They have perfected their guest hospitality recipe. When we arrived the person who checked us in found a way to offer us an even lower price for the same room as compared to what we booked online. The next morning at breakfast, there was a person there to help--she even offered to and made my son and me waffles. There were also some foreign guests there while we were eating, and the staff treated them professionally and with great courtesy and respect. And it was all genuine--there were no phony smiles or lip service, the folks at this hotel were well versed in customer service and were appreciative of the guests. Lots of hotels could stand to learn just how much of a difference that makes.

The room was clean and well appointed with a nice sized freezer and fridge unit (having the freezer portion was very helpful to us), very comfortable beds, a working room safe, etc. Everything one would expect in a hotel room, and all in good shape.

The room was quiet. The hotel was conveniently located with good parking. The grounds were well kept.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that the room had a bit of an odor. It smelled like a prior guest had spilled something and maybe the maids had not yet been able to get the last little bit of it out. To be clear, it was not overwhelming, and we didn't miss a minute of sleep over it in our very comfortable beds. I mention it only for the purposes of completeness.

Overall this was a great stay, and we would not hesitate to return or recommend it to anyone.

As in previous years we arrived quite late and shattered after the long journey from the UK. We were welcomed in the usual warm welcome, and excellent clean well presented accomodation.

Staff very cheerful and nothing ever too difficult. plenty of great eating houses close by, and some of the best golf you will ever play anywhere.

We will return..................
