Very clean, relatively new hotel. Hotel staff is friendly. Located near the main highway with lots of places to eat and attractions/tours to enjoy. Only problem I encountered was a power outage that was caused by bad weather.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 April 2017

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Clean and quiet. Room was ready early (upon request) and accommodated our "high floor" selection. No smoking property and all areas were presented well. Staff were friendly, professional and humorous!! Mr. Ali had an answer for every question and a joke for everything upon arrival. Jennifer, the Night Auditor, was a very...

We stayed 1 night before swimming with the manatees the next day. The hotel was clean, our room was well appointed and the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.

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...
