From check-in to check-out this was one of the nicest hotel experiences I've ever had. The people really care and it shows on every level. I had a really bad experience at a Starwood Aloft hotel a few weeks earlier and this positive experience has swayed my thought-process into seeking out this brand for future travels. Cannot really guess whether...

Bari1025, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that Jennifer was able to take care of your family after a long day on the road. I see the kids found the pancake make, it is a fun item for them. We hope you to see you the next time you are in the Crystal River area.

It is a nice Hotel with a very nice Breakfast. The only complain we had, the HVAC filter was not clean, nasty smell when in operation. We did inform the Desk, but nothing was done to take care for the problem.

The staff here were wonderful from the check in late at night which was friendly and helpful to the early morning request for pool towels which were promptly provided to the breakfast staff who cheerily went about her tasks and provided any help needed. (Holiday Inn Lido Beach, maybe you could get some pointers from these folks!) The two bedroom...

Can't say enough good things about the hotel and staff! Everyone was friendly and helpful. The lady setting up breakfast came in early to make sure all the divers staying in the hotel could get breakfast before leaving the hotel. The room was large and clean and the beds comfy. Absolutely no complaints during our stay!

If you have stayed at one before then you know what to expect. The beds were comfortable (although a little squeaky). Decent breakfast in the A.M. (pancake maker, yogurt, fruits, sausage, gravy, biscuits, cereal, cinnamon rolls, coffee all day), very clean and well kept rooms. New soaps and towels provided daily. We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms have pretty...

Customer service was excellent! Staff was friendly, warm, and helpful. The epitome of southern hospitality. Tammy even recommended places to visit and helped me find the location of my manatee tour. Every employee at the hotel had superb customer service. When I arrived they put me on the 4th floor because they thought it would be quieter for me. The...

Clean, professional, no issues. We were in town for a 1st time visit to see the Manatees. But I couldn't help but notice there were many guests checking in for a Wedding. I overheard that the hotel was full, and it is noteworthy that the staff handled all of this ease-- at least that was how it appeared to me...
