I would definitely stay here again. We stayed here overnight to do an early morning kayak tour the following day. The room was available at a good rate (especially since it was a very busy weekend to see manatees in the springs). The room was clean, had a king bed, loveseat, refridgerator & microwave. The bathroom was clean, had great... More

They had nails that were sticking out of the wall and ripped a hole in the sleeve of my sweatshirt, when we told the receptionist about it, she said that she will have somebody go pound the nail in and didn't care about the damage to the shirt. Also the bathroom ceiling had mold all over it and the room... More

Stayed here for two nights over President's Weekend because we wanted to swim with manatees. It was the cheapest place we could find by a long shot, and for the price($55 a night), it was clean and just a short drive to the main part of town. Water pressure in the shower was great, small fridge was great for keeping... More

The good: great wi-fi, .an outlet tree that was conveniently placed on my nightstand to recharge electronic devices, very basic breakfast, consisting mostly of donuts and bread products and apples, orange juice and coffee, friendly reception by the females, very clean rooms. The bad: loud traffic noise in rooms, no hot water for two days, which was being worked on,... More

Room are clean and well equipped. The motel is rather noisy, open on a busy road. For the breakfast, you have to go to the reception, take your plate and coffee and come back to your room because there is not enough space. But for the price, it is a good choice !

This is one excellent Econolodge. Obviously, this is not a five star resort, but this is a great econolodge. Very clean, very well furnished, and very well maintained rooms. Breakfast is the weak point. There are basically a couple of danish but no sitting rooms. I am not sure if it is American-owned but it seems to be at least... More

I went down to Crystal River for my birthday to see the manatees. I got this hotel because it was cheaper and close to the river. The front desk lady was very nice and helpful. The lady that was behind was not the same. When we went to our rooms it was pretty normal. The beds were made and everything... More

Basic, no frills, clean older hotel. Reasonably priced. WiFi and CRT TV in room. Grab and go breakfast (coffee, bagel,etc). Specify smoking or non-smoking room when making your reservation. Five minute drive to downtown Crystal River.

The entire facility and room were surprisingly clean for a cheap hotel. The room was small but plenty big enough for those that are looking for an affordable place to stay for a night or two either traveling through or taking part in activities available in town. The bed was a bit too soft for me, but I know there... More

Just a basic budget motel room, but reasonably clean with no insects. The TV was an old tube style from the '80s - not a modern flat panel one - but it worked. The free Wi-Fi was good - I could stream HD movies from Amazon Prime without buffering. The free breakfast is worthless: mediocre coffee and some stale supermarket... More
