The hotel has lots of rooms - big place. There are trips offered through the hotel - hence the resort title. Located right on the river near several restaurants and right off highway 19 - the Sun Coast Highway. The room is typical - the bed was very comfortable and the room quiet so we slept well! Like with many...

Room was clean and better than average, meaning it had a mini sofa in it. The main office building is nicer than the hotel. It appears like a motel, but our room seems to have been updated. Location is good, not a far drive to the Crystal River Manatee Tour groups and to restaurants. Breakfast offered was good - bagels,...

Positives, it was a decent room, fairly clean. A little odor in the room though. Our biggest issues were: 1. They put is in a handicapped room without asking us if that was OK. There was no lip on the shower area to keep the water in so when we showered the water was everywhere so even the toilet area...

I stayed there a couple of years ago for a few nights. They have since upgraded, and the breakfast has improved considerably. Unfortunately, their prices have increased. Still a nice hotel. Much better than it was. Some of my crew's rooms were small and a bit cramped.

This motel has lots of rooms and is located adjacent to a business that takes you out to see/swim with manatees. The rooms are clean and fine; breakfast is ok. The internet connection in the room was very poor, so if this is important to you I'd recommend staying elsewhere.

Had an enjoyable stay and loved the river location. The pool was a good size and there was also a hot tub. The area was well maintained and clean. Our room was o.k. but we found the double beds a bit small. There was a good selection of breakfast items and plenty of seating. We ate at the restaurant next...

We were traveling with a dog over Thanksgiving and stayed here after being scared off of the reviews of the other hotels in the area that allow pets. This is a nice waterfront property with a great pool and jacuzzi area. There was also a picnic area with grills. The room was well-equipped and modern. The pet fee was refreshingly...

Management should train front desk clerks to greet customers, like "Welcome to Best Western"! or Hi, how can I help you? Dawn was unfriendly and did not make us feel welcomed. We got checked in and couldn't get into our room because the key wouldn't scan! All the way back to the front desk to get new ones. The toilet...
