Beautiful hotel. Lobby is gorgeous and decorated glass sealife. Checkin was fast. Rooms super clean and beds comfy. Breakfast area awesome! Pancake maker, need I say more? Pool area very nice. Even jumped in with the kids. Our favorite hotel this trip.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for two nights on our visit to Crystal River. I was absolutely delighted with it. It was close to all the attractions & restaurants. It was waterfront but after seeing the selection of other hotels in town, this was definitely the right choice! It was very clean from walking in and all of our room. The front desk was very friendly and helpful with answering questions. The young lady working was particularly helpful with us picking a local restaurant for dinner. I also noticed how patient and helpful she was with the guests in line before us. I would absolutely refer this hotel to anyone and stay here again myself.

My friends and I have been going Scalloping for years; we stay in different places to find the best deal. This year my spouse and I decided to move away from the water by just 5 miles, what a difference. The hotel was clean, smelled clean; our room was great with a view of the pool, you got a choice of pillows. If any scallop hunters like us were there you couldn’t tell. Continental breakfast was very satisfying, I would stay here again. Some friends payed the same price someplace else, no frig, no microwave, small coffee maker, no breakfast. I won't be staying there. Please remember the earlier you get to the boat launch the better.

Room Tip: I can't speak for all rooms but we were in the back, 4th floor. No noise, or disruptive people.

Green Features: They saved the soap, replaced the towels. I couldn't tell if the sheets were changed but they were clean. No smoking in the hotel at all.

staying here now, rooms are lovely and clean, hotel is new, beds are super comfy, breakfast is ok ish, sausage, scrambled egg, biscuits and gravy but was luke warm which is why i put it down a star - they have everything else - juice, toast, cereal, bagels etc so allot of choice. I would recommend this as a good choice to stay!

Wow, what a great group of people. Mary in the kitchen was very kind and helpful, the front desk staff checked on us and went out of their way to help. The manager called after the stay to be sure we were satisfied.

We were visiting the area to go scalloping and the holiday inn was a great place to spend the weekend. The front desk staff was friendly, check in and check out were quick, and the room was clean and well maintained. The wifi worked well for our whole stay as well. We will be returning to the area and will definitely stay here again.
