I knew it was going to be an older place, but it is too rundown! I didn't expect too much for the price but the heat barely worked so they provided a space heater in the room which couldn't heat the entire space considering there was a separate bathroom and sitting area. I had to ask for a hairdryer that...

My wife and I stayed here last year. The buildings and rooms are old but quaint, and the price is right. It's on the water, with a good restaurant just yards from the rooms. The restaurant is also on the water and gets crowded. It has great seafood. Hurricane Hermine came up the Gulf coast a few months after our...

This hotel was built in 1945 and it is showing its age, but there is a glimpse here of what used to be. Everyone was friendly, there were a fridge & microwave in the room, coffee in the lobby all day and a free continental breakfast kept us comfy & fed. There was a pool, no beach area, but every...

My husband and i only stayed in crystal river for one night, we chose the port because of the great rates for boat rentals at the marina. Marina is wonderful! Attentive and knowledgeable staff, boat and equipment prepared and clean, great competitve pricing. Hotel not so great..the outdoor stairs leading to our room wobbled, the showerhead sprayed water all over...

This place had 5 foot of river water in it a few months ago. The smell is terrible. It's kind of you get what you pay for. They need to invest in upgrading it or board it up. Much nicer places in the area.

I've stayed in many gross hotels and this is definitely one of them. The place is really worn down. We stayed in building C I believe. There were half used shampoo bottles left behind, a lot of dead bugs in the corner of the room, stains on the sheet (that I just prayed were actually clean), and the scent of...

I've stayed here several times, and while it is a much older hotel, it is right on the water and in a great location. The rooms have always been clean and the water is hot, so that's good enough for me!

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. We had a...

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.
