My husband and I travel for business 2 to 3 days a week and usually stay in the major chains, but not in Palatka. We read the reviews on Crystal Cove and decided to give it a chance. That was several weeks ago and we have stayed there many nights since, usually at least 2 nights a week. It is a clean, friendly, safe and comfortable place. Lots of updates and the beds are awesome! If you have a boat, the marina is on site and was voted the best in the area. The rooms in the main part of resort, river side, have beautiful views of the St John's. The food at Hard Dock's (on site) is the best we have eaten in the area. The AYCE shrimp special on Tuesday and Thursday nights is a must do deal. The picture I attached is taken from a table there.
If you need wifi ask for a room close to the lobby, it is excellent (and free) there. The owner, Kelly, and his wife are working hard to make Crystal Cove a place you will want to go to and it's working. We are looking forward to a weekend there with our boat soon.
