Crystal River and the Best Western are old Florida enjoyable break in a state growing too fast. Older hotel but well maintained and clean. Excellent staff. Not for excitement but rest and fun on the water. Would love to join the manatees. sounds like fun.

A nice enough place to stay. Just off main road so easy to find when touring - close to a nice restaurant and on the water so nice to walk by in evening. Views from boardwalk by restaurant and bar very pleasant though No view to speak of from room but only sleeping there so adequate for one night stopover.

Location is right on the water. Room was clean but really needs some updating. Carpets need to be replaced and as mentioned by another reviewer, the place smells musty. I had to go out and purchase some air freshener. Breakfast was ok and adequate. We had a room with a balcony but balcony faced the back of a building. Screen...

Rooms are old, not clean, musty smell. stained carpet. Used to love coming here several years ago, the location is excellent, but they have let the place run down, It's in definite need of an extreme hotel makeover
