We stayed for one night before swimming with the manatees The hotel is clean, the bed was super comfortable and free breakfast in the morning! The outdoor pool is nice too, although we were told it was heated, but didn't feel like it was.

Fairly modern hotel. Ideally situated for exploring Homosassa and Crystal River. Breakfast served from 6a.m for those looking to make an early start. Rooms were spacious. Good warm shower. Effective AC but a little noisy. Booked though IHG website but later that day found a discount voucher which could have saved me an additional amount so worth looking at all...

My family and I decided, just a week before Spring Break, to swim with the manatees, do some kayaking, biking, etc., and our first call was to American Pro Diving to make sure we could get on an excursion with them. Once we reserved our trips with them, the lady asked where we were staying. We hadn't reserved a room...

Wonderful breakfast was served with many different options...free! The bed is comfortable and the room a decent size. There was a fridge to keep your drinks cold. Not too far from the activities in the area!

My family of five stayed here the night before our manatee experience. We were allowed to check in early, there is plenty of parking and we were always able to find someone at the front desk to help us if we needed it. Room was big enough to accommodate our family, it was clean and the breakfast was just what...

The staff made us feel welcomed and appreciated from the moment we walked in the hotel. The common areas and our room were all clean and decorated very nice; I loved the glass sculptures in the lobby. The bed linens and mattress were comfortable - great night's sleep. The variety of food at breakfast offered something for everyone. The air...

Had such a great night sleep. The beds were so comfy. They were truly queen sized beds--unlike some hotels which just say they are queen sized but actually smaller. Very clean and well kept hotel. Friendly staff. Good hot breakfast. We enjoyed our stay.

I stayed here with my husband, mom, and niece. The room was nice, the staff were friendly, and the beds were very comfortable. I wish they had a hottub and I would have given 5 stars. That's a personal thing though. We had dinner then came back to the hotel and were really looking forward to going in the hottub...

After staging at this Holiday Inn Express and the one in Ocala, they have become our hotel chain of choice. A little pricier than some but cleanlines to me is worth the extra few dollars. We had not issues with the room or service. Will definitely stay there whenever we're in the area.
