Very comfortable and clean rooms. Well equipped kitchenette. Boat tours leave right from dock. Restaurants close by as well. The water is 72 degrees but quite comfortable on warm days. The spring swimming area is fun and a nice change.

My husband planned a surprise one-night getaway for our 1st anniversary, and booked our night at King's Bay Lodge. Since it was a small town, I had little expectations. Stan helped us check-in and he was friendly and professional. When we opened the door, all I could say was "I wish we could stay longer!". The room is wonderfully decorated...

I can not say enough to express how awesome this lodge is. My wife and I were not expecting the ambience. Everything from the southern hospitality of the crew, the natural spring swimming pool, the décor of the rooms, and the Sunset. We will return to Crystal River and we will stay at King's Bay Lodge.

Usually stay at the Best western. Decided to try King's Bay on a whim! (And because of the natural pool option, even though it's January!). The staff was welcoming when I made the reservation, answered all my questions. I called ahead as we were running late getting in town the day of check-in. They said no problem! Got there and...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about King's Bay Lodge. The location is perfect. The lodge is on the water yet only a two block walk to shops, coffee shops and bars. The lodge is also within walking distance to very nice city parks. The Crab Plant is basically in the back yard and has a great restaurant and also...

We stayed at Best Western and then decided to transfer over to Kings Bay Lodge after seeing how much bigger the rooms were! And they all have kitchenettes. There is a back door also so it's like a little home. People there were wonderful. The rooms are all remodeled beautifully, as they were hit pretty hard with Hurricane Hermione. Last...

The remodeled rooms are clean and modern. We had everything we needed in the room including a full size kitchen. Staff is exceptional and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. A boat slip was provided at no extra charge and the ramp was just around the corner. The natural, spring fed pool was...

We stayed here for our 5th Christmas in Crystal River and were initially worried that our room would not be ready for our visit from the flooding earlier in the year.

We were so happy to find Kings Bay Lodge is recovering from the storm damage. They have done a wonderful job. Our room was fresh and clean. Love being able to walk out to the dock and launch our paddle boards. And we took advantage of a sunset cruise with Captain Wayne.
