We happened upon King's Bay Lodge via Trip Advisor, our expectations were exceeded! When we pulled into the office to check in, I'll admit I was a little concerned thinking to myself, "What have we gotten ourselves into..." But as soon as we walked into our room, we were pleasantly surprised at how charming and updated everything was. A couple...

This place is amazing. Quiet and clean. Perfect family vacation. Highly recommend. Everything at your fingertips. The natural spring pool was my son's favorite. Highly recommend Captain Wayne White with Aqua Source Manatee tour! We will be back.

We arrived for a 3 night stay with our 4 person family and checked into room 5. It was spotless and had plenty of space for our family. The rooms look to be recently updated from new floors, new kitchen appliances, new furniture, etc. (We moved to room 9 for the last 2 nights of our stay and found it...

We spent a long weekend at King's Bay Lodge and had a very relaxing break! Our room was a very spacious room w/ KS bed and living area along with well-stocked kitchenette. Didn't use too many of the appliances as I was eager to try the local restaurants. Beautiful view on the water; spring-filled pool with slide; retro games to...

My friend and I traveled to Crystal River for the purpose of swimming with the Manatees and came across the Kings Bay Lodge by chance on the internet. We couldn't have found a better place if we tried! The room was recently renovated due to storm damage and was absolutely adorable. Pictures don't do it justice. Having a kitchenette was...

We stayed at King's Bay Lodge for three nights in late December. My husband and I had a room and our three 20something daughters stayed next door. It was perfect for us! The staff is welcoming, the rooms spotless, and the people staying next to us could not have been nicer. It is a great location in town - lots...

A quaint place to stay. Understand lodging was recently flooded; no worry as our unit was tastefully decorated with everything needed for a visit; even had a back door. Located at edge of King's Bay with a natural spring swimming pool within walking distance to great restaurants and historical downtown. Beautiful sunsets from dock and pool. Friendly and helpful staff....

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.
