The staff was nice, the breakfast in the morning was great. The one minor issue I had was that sound of someone walking in the room above was so loud that I thought they were in our room. The bad part is it started at 3:30 am and didn't stop until after 7vam. It is an older hotel and the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 June 2016

This Best Western is in an excellent location. It is right on Crystal River and a dive shop on site to rent boats, get a guide to see manatee, dive, or just cruise the river. All rooms have been recently upgraded and are fresh and clean. Friendly staff. A hot breakfast is included. Pool area with covered picnic tables and...

I was a little skeptical prior to booking due to some previous reviews. We arrived for check in after a day of kayaking and manatee watching. We were welcomed and our room was ready. We have stayed at several BW before and had a pleasant stay. This place was no exception. Our room was renovated, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed...

Stopped over for the night and was pleasantly surprised. The Motel was on the water and you could sit along the pier and watch the pelicans. Our room was very nice with a comfortable bed. We were close to the road but did not hear road noises at night.

We stayed two nights at the end of a three week holiday around Florida and this hotel provided the most comprehensive complimentary breakfast out if any of the hotels and resorts we stayed in - hence five stars! Swimming pool and hot tub look out over the river and diving dock. Coin laundry on site and use of computers in...

Lots of younger people all enjoying the pool, the gulf and the bar next door. This is a fun place to stay because of the access to the Gulf. Crackers Bar and Grill is right next door and you can walk ver easily to some great food.

Although we arrived in the evening the room was not ready. We waited outside by the water. Had dinner at the adjoining restaurant and the room was OK. A little tired and handicapped accessible although we didn't ask not needed it. Breakfast was incredible and available after our swim with the Manatees which we did at 6:00 am - 9:00...

I am a Best Western rewards member. I called their 800 number to arrange the night's stay. I was told of this location where they had a "harbour view" room available. That sounded great so I took it. The complex looked interesting from the highway although some of the buildings appeared old. At check-in at a nice new building, I...

First impression was checking in and the Front Desk Agent was at first very abrupt with a "Yes?" when I walked up to check in ..... Not a "good afternoon, how are you, welcome" .... Nothing. Anyway she mellowed during the check in process which was very quick. Room was ready early and clean. Breakfast was included and very good....
