Location, location, location. This is an older Hotel, after all, Elvis filmed a movie here in 1961. The Hotel took a hit from a hurricane a few months ago, so some of lower area is new, and the 2nd floor is very worn and could stand to be completely reconstructed. But, you get what you pay for.

This was a basic room, patio facing the water and restaurant. Pool. Right next to the manatee tour marina. Quiet, price was right. Have to agree that the place needed some repairs like the stairs to the second floor.

Stay away! I had hoped for a respite from the chain hotels that dominate Florida but this place was a real stinker. Probably hasty repairs after storm, staff were hardcore, room smelled, and the towels were stained.

A group I am involved with had picked this place for a reunion get together. It is on the water and has good view of area, but is a low budget dive or fish hotel. The cost was very inexpensive but you get what you pay for. Seemed clean but interior was very worn, holes in walls and openings around... More

Just because you have a perfect location doesn't always mean you have a great hotel room. Our room was terribly outdated. We rented a 2 double bed room and when we got there our room and a bed in two locations. On the one side the air condition froze us out and the other side it was a little better.... More

We had a great stay! The hotel is clean and has a beautiful view! The restaurant has a great chef! And the dive/tour shop is amazing! !! The people are friendly and accommodating. We accidentally brought our kayaks back after closing time and they were understanding and took care of us!!! We will always stay there when visiting Crystal River!... More

We stayed here the end of September to take advantage of the last few days of the scalloping season. The best feature of this place is the ability to drop the boat in and leave it docked at the marina for your entire stay. The price was very reasonable, we booked through a 3rd party online. The place itself need... More

Pros: I absolutely love this location. When we arrived the room we were placed in was not near our boat slip and we asked to be moved and they accommodated us right away! The staff was very friendly the entire stay. We were able to rent a boat slip ($10 a night)and use their boat ramp free of charge as... More

This place was happening and fun to be at. The dog was welcome and we had a great time staying at this place. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, good food and good service. The staff at the hotel and marina were friendly and nice.
