Arrived at Best Western at 4:30PM and the room wasn't ready for another 30mins. I reserved a non-smoking room and they booked me a smoking room. When I requested a non-smoking room they refused to give me a non-smoking room and requested I talk to the booking agency I went through ( I confirmed I ordered a non smoking room)....

We are an engaged couple. I purchased a birthday dive trip for a pre-wedding trip to practice our new dive skills. After a grueling 8 hour trip, the front desk gave us 2 keys to a room. The keys didn't work. Went back to get them fixed and told her that there was a mistake, supposed to be a King...

General M, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Crystal River Resort, responded to this review

First, I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations this weekend. Our resort has a very limited number of King rooms available, six to be exact. Most of our guests travel with large groups or families with children which is why the majority of our rooms feature two beds. Our guests come back each year to visit us...

Had a good stay, hotel clerk very amiable, room nice, bathroom clean with no mold. A good place to stay to explore manatees at three sisters spring, close to town hall where the shuttle runs to the spring. Also close to good restaurants.

this is a basic hotel - with multiple buildings -- the room was nice. We got (did not ask for) a handicap room - so the shower and toilet were in the same room - and since it was handicap - there were no barriers to the shower - so water went all over -- Not awful - just different....

Hotel has a great location on the water adjacent to a decent local waterfront restaurant. The room was nice and clean, but what really stood out as exceptional was the breakfast buffet. Had all of the standard offerings for a free hotel breakfast, including hot eggs biscuits and gravy and sausage, pancakes, waffles, fruits, breads, etc., but the food was...

The location was near kayak rentals with nice views of the manatees & boat ramp. The pool area was very nice. The rooms were dingy with torn carpet. We had an interior room facing the pool area that was nice. The over all room was disappointing.

The hotel has lots of rooms - big place. There are trips offered through the hotel - hence the resort title. Located right on the river near several restaurants and right off highway 19 - the Sun Coast Highway. The room is typical - the bed was very comfortable and the room quiet so we slept well! Like with many...

Room was clean and better than average, meaning it had a mini sofa in it. The main office building is nicer than the hotel. It appears like a motel, but our room seems to have been updated. Location is good, not a far drive to the Crystal River Manatee Tour groups and to restaurants. Breakfast offered was good - bagels,...

Positives, it was a decent room, fairly clean. A little odor in the room though. Our biggest issues were: 1. They put is in a handicapped room without asking us if that was OK. There was no lip on the shower area to keep the water in so when we showered the water was everywhere so even the toilet area...
