This hotel is on an amazing waterfront property. You would think it would be much more expensive to spend the night here. The price is low because the hotel is very run down, inside and out. The rooms leave a LOT to be desired. The beds and sheets are ok, the pillows seem to be from the 1960's. Everything in...

I stayed at the Port Hotel and Marina two nights and have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It is centrally located and has a restaurant and bar on-site. It's also RIGHT on the water, which makes for wonderful sunsets. The hotel itself is older, however the rooms are functional and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

This place could use some updating. It is in need of paint and modernization. The restaurant food is OK but there are much better places very near by. The dive center is probably the best part of this location as they are very close to Threen Sisters Springs where the manatee come in for the winter months.

I stopped over here on my way from west-central Florida to Alabama. There's a nice bike trail in the vicinity I had been wanting to check out, so I rode the trail before checking in. I got in just before sunset and from my room's balcony, I watched dolphins feeding and myriad birds swooping and hunting as the sun set....

My kind of place, laid back, on the water, great location. Having the Crystal River Ale House on site is a big bonus, great food and drink specials. Service at the restaurant was excellent.Didn't take a manatee boat out this time, we'll be back to try that next time.

Felt like a return to the old days of Florida tourism. The view is phenomenal, and the location - although interesting to drive to - is convenient. While the room was quiet, clean, and comfortable, it had definitely seen better days. Cosmetic work needed, as well as some deferred maintenance and some decent coffee (only available through the cashier/lobby), but...

The people who run this place are idiots. If they would just do a little maintenance/renovation, they would have a goldmine. The hotel overlooks Kings Bay in a lovely setting. Instead, they offer, at premium prices, some of the nastiest hotel rooms you can imagine. They aren't nice people either. They yelled at us for driving our scooters on the...

This is written for the over 50 crowd. My wife says to take the high road in this review. The location on the water at Kings Bay, on site access to a kayak and dive shop, restaurant and bar where you don't have to leave is excellent. Don't hold against the hotel that Building A's water view is impacted by...
