I requested a quiet room, and the staff upgraded me to the quietest area of this resort. I had a week long stay to take care of business and to visit friends. the room was clean, and the service was great.

Great location, very friendly and accommodating staff. Enjoyed quiet cocktails at marina, it is off season. Would be an excellent location during manatee season. Diving and snorkeling services on site. Would definitely recommend and plan to return for manatees.

This hotel is family friendly which includes your fur babies. It has its own boat ramp and boat slips. A restaurant right next door. We have been coming to this hotel for nearly 12 years. They recently remodeled and have expanded their breakfast items. We love this place and will continue going back.

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 gas grills. There is also a restaurant next door with live music and outdoor seating.

We had 4 rooms for the opening of scallop season. The staff was friendly and helpful. The boat dockage was great and so was the breakfast. We enjoyed having the restaurant next door with the live music. The outdoor grill area worked out great when we grilled steaks the first night.

Great location - right on Kings Bay with a boat launch. Nice breakfast buffet. Well stocked, clean. Rooms are in the middle of remodeling. Our room had been updated, but the AC smelled musty, as it does in most places near the water with high humidity. Room was otherwise clean and comfortable.

Never updated. Why is it they believe we want the same 50's looking hotel. I guess they don't update them so people can re live the hotels hey stayed in when they were kids! Honestly, this is what I call camping. Dirty walls, same old bed skirts and pictures. The sheets were clean but the towels were old and stained.If hotels in Florida are anywhere near water they refuse to change them. They look old and run down. I would call this the red neck riviera. The area could be nice, but people don't ... Read more

Great location but rooms aren't fairing very well since the renovation 2-3 years ago. Breakfast is good, well done. Staff is better now that a new GM is in place. Price for room quality is not in line. Before the renovation, room rate was 85-90, since update 135 but rooms are not being maintained very well.

I went here with a huge group because they go every year to scallop and upon arrival we were a little upset I know it was a holiday but the boat parking was awful the area to park your boat is pretty small and it was so full people were parking all over the resort grass everywhere with their trailers. It took us almost an hour to finally be able to park our trailer we had to wait for people to pull out. Now the boat ramp at the resort is AWFUL you have to pull your boat and trailer between 2 row... Read more

I'm a die-hard Hilton Honors member, so when the Crystal River Hampton overbooked, we were debating whether to drive straight thru to Ocala or stay put. We made the right choice. Snuggly situated under grandfather oaks, this place was literally the best seat in the house, considering it was right on top of the river. Immaculately clean rooms, personable staff, and close to everything, I couldn't have been more satisfied, down to the handwritten welcome note on the bed side table. And the price? ... Read more

We stayed here for one night and swam with manatee at Birds underwater adventures. Hotel room was clean and service was good. They provided a nice breakfast. They were close to water and walking distance to our manatee tour at Birds. Nice place to stay. Staff was kind and considerate.

After a very long day of driving we saw the Best Western waterfront sign and decided to pull in (waterfront gets us every time!). The lobby was nicely appointed so I thought the rooms could not be that bad. Front desk could have been a bit friendlier but she did her job (to the minimum...). The room was nice, bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. We got a room by the pool and right beside the dock so that was a treat! Breakfast the next day was very nice so all in all... this Best Wester... Read more

This is the place we like to stay at when we're in town for some scalloping. The twins enjoy the pool. The location is great and they have grills that can be used by guest to prepare their fresh catch from a great day on the water.

We drove in to check in at 4, they took our money and we were told to come back later, the room was not ready. We ran around for a couple of hours, came back and found our room was at the top of steep stairs with no elevator. But what could we do? They were booked? So with a bad back my fiancee dragged our suitcase up stairs. We were kept up late by a storm, only to be awakened by LOUD truck noises at 6 am, because we were facing the busy street. I called the front desk to document this and was... Read more

This "Resort" is very friendly, accommodating, hospitable and clean. The location is ideal for and is frequented by water sports enthusiasts. The boat ramp was well traveled when we got there on Thursday and got continually busier as the weekend approached. The pool got used a lot and we met some great people... something about being on vacation in Florida. We enjoyed the front desk Manager. We were well taken care of and we got extra towels!! The breakfast was good and there was plenty of food.... Read more

If you are coming to Crystal River to see the manatees, stay here. The front desk staff was very friendly. The free breakfast includes continental items and full hot breakfast items. Pancake and waffle makers, eggs, sausage, oatmeal were all options offered. The on-site dive shop has reasonable priced manatee trips..no drinks or extra frills offered like others..yet very friendly staff. Our trip was just the three of us and we had a memorable morning with many up close encounters. At the hotel... Read more
