I found myself not wanting to rate King's Bay Lodge as I want it ALL to myself. It's becoming harder to get our dates and I know by rating them well, it will become harder but to be perfectly honest, they deserve an Excellent rating. We take up the entire Lodge at least once a year for about 10 days....

A quiet, clean home feel... like your visiting a good friends house and they want you to feel welcome and provide the most comfortable room for you. Easy chairs, big TV, small dining table, kitchen with stove, fridge, pots ,pans, tableware, microwave coffee maker, soft fluffly towels, plenty of space for hanging clothes or to put in a dresser...also, chairs...

Kings Bay Lodge is a great place for our fishing club scalloping trip. The rooms are big and CLEAN. The rooms come with recliners, full size frig, coffee maker and plenty of room to move around.

Our fishing club loved the spacious rooms and great gathering space in the center. We've already booked for next year! Rooms are clean and comfortable with lots of space. Staff is pleasant and extremely helpful. Our club members with boats loved that they could dock on-site.

Nice quiet mom and pop type motel. Rooms are pretty big, and the staff were really nice. Great place for gatherings with the outdoor pavilion and decent floating docks and cleaning station. The grounds are kept up and they have some of the thickest, greenest grass I have ever seen. Ample kitchen amenities.

Excellent place! A very relaxing, quiet place. Rooms were clean as well as the grounds. Boat slips and trailer parking available. Spring fed pool was very relaxing and cool after a long day on the water. Looking forward to next year at the KBL

Reviewed 27 August 2016

Only place we would stay in crystal river... anytime of year. Love the set up of property and old style Lodge experience. Only thing I would change are the beds... too small. I do like that some rooms have been updated. Price used to be much more to room types. Updates should be made to compensate for rise in rates....

Madeira Beach, Florida
Reviewed 26 August 2016

This small, family owned fishing lodge located under large oak trees festooned with Spanish Moss is tucked away into the side of King's Bay. It is a great location for quick access to waters teaming with fish and scsllops. During the week the place is wonderfully quiet but on the weekends, the place becomes lively with regulars coming back again...

We stayed here for only one night but we enjoyed our stay! This "mom-n-pop" lodge backs up to the bay and has boat slips in close proximity to the rooms. There is a 'natural', spring-fed swimming pool with vegetation on the bottom. When I booked this stay I thought it looked really cool and figured we'd swim in the morning...

“I loved room 10 because it has front of the room parking, is close to the boat slips without being on the end of the property.”

“Probably a room closer to the water is better because it's away from the street/office but I doubt there's a 'bad' room.”
