The hotel stay was very pleasant and accommodating. I will definitely recommend Best Western to all my friends and family. Room was beautiful and we really enjoyed the in room fridge and microwave. The TV was also nice to watch. Staff is very friendly and the breakfast was really good.

Stayed for one night only to attend early morning snorkeling trip with manatees. Comfortable beds and appreciated the room facilities, particularly the fresh coffee (as opposed to instant coffee). Very friendly staff. Pool is great. Restaurant next door good for sitting outside, drinking cocktails and enjoying the view. Can park outside room. Would stay again. Didn't try out the breakfast...

When I first checked in during a torrential rainstorm, the first room I received was a very drab, low-ceilinged place that stank heavily of musty wet dog. The room was also very dark, with an icky, stained carpet, and the shower was one of those "roll in" accessible showers, even though I had requested a bath through my TripAdvisor booking....

Dirty, filthy room, bathroom, Mildewed shower and floor. Full of roaches. Maintenance man told us that we didn't see any roaches. We dug the ones that we had killed out of the trash for him to see.1 bar of soap , no shampoo. Two bath towels and two wash cloths. Room smelled .

The staff was friendly and helpful, the location was wonderful right on King's Bay, and the restaurant, Crackers, was good, also. Very good breakfast included in the rate. The bedding was plush, great pillows. The room was nicely decorated, recently updated, and pretty. The bathroom was clean.

Very clean, well staffed (facilities guys are doing something all day long - cleaning the pool again, washing down the sidewalks, cleaning up the exterior...) Desk staff was great and very helpful to all who asked (I ended up sitting in the lobby waiting for someone for 2 hours so I know). Good breakfast. Fantastic location for kayakers, great boat...

Pet friendly! Really......not just tolerant but welcoming. This is impressive considering we traveled with a mastiff! Great property convenient to seafood restaurants and the water. Room was nice and bed comfortable. Will definately stay here again.

The place was beautiful! You would never know that a hurricane hit them a week ago. The staff was friendly. The dive shop was helpful. Breakfast was great. Having a restaurant right next door was awesome. The kayak rental was one street down the road. The view was amazing being on the water. Great hotel.

The room was clean, staff were friendly. Resort is conveniently located on the Crystal River with easy access to dock, ramp, pool, and rooms. Enjoyed a day of scalloping only to be able to return to the resort and pool for some relaxation. Definite must stay in the Crystal River area.
