As other reviewers stated, this is a perfect "old style" Florida motel. Room views are great, with second story balconies to see the water, fish, birds, dolphins. Rooms are a bit dated but the overall price, location (quiet waterfront), very good restaurant/pub, are a great combination. Nice area for walking. Kayak/boat rentals onsite for easy manatee viewing.

I have stayed at this hotel a least 4 times. Sometimes for several nights and others just a stop over heading to The Keys. We have always been satisfied with our accommodations, staff, restaurant and Tiki Bar. We will miss Marge as we have found out that she has now retired. Yes it is an older property but I have...

In many ways I like this place. It's right on the water and my room had a rear entry door so that I look out a window doesn't have people standing in front of it so I could leave to blinds open for a gorgeous view of Kings Bay. It has a private patio. I could launch my kayak right...

I have visited the Crystal River several times and always have stayed at other places. On my last trip I opted to stay at The Port Hotel and Marina and was very happy that I did. No, this might not be the newest, finest hotel in the area but it is a clean room with a hot shower and comfortable...

The Port Hotel and Marina is just the place for an inexpensive, clean room with a beautiful view and fast access to the Nature Coast. The hotel dates back over 50 years so it doesn't have that "new car smell" but it's the kind of place you want if your budget is tight and you plan on spending time enjoying...

My wife and I stayed here while attending an annual scuba diving / manatee snorkel weekend. The room was clean, the water was hot, and the view was great. All in all we had a great weekend and will stay there again.

Save some of your hard-earned money and give this place a try. It was good enough for Elvis, and it's still a clean, comfortable place to relax. Our room was recently painted, and had new carpet. No complaints. I wanted to stay here because of its Hollywood history, but I knew that it wasn't going to be a 5-star hotel....

We had a double room with view over the marina and river. This motel is quite old, but we had a very nice stay here. Beds are very comfortable and the shower is very good.

At $25 cheaper a night than anyone else, its a no brainer. NOT a 5 star hotel with people blowing sunshine but a 20+ year old facility with everything you need. Comfortable bed, air conditioners (2 per room) and reasonably clean. Great dock on property if you want to sit on your rear porch and watch locals come and go....
