Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mom from SC Great hotel and experience there
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Crystal River in January 2014, planning to see the manatees. This hotel was awesome - clean, fresh and good breakfast. Mary, the breakfast hostess, had breakfast set up much earlier than the posted time and extended it late - which allows families on a 6:15 a.m. manatee tour to get a hot breakfast at the hotel before leaving. She is a rock star!!!!

Although this HIE is in a small town it is my favorite location. The staff are always friendly and accomodating. The facility always clean and well maintained. The breakfast choices are those of the HIE standard with a fruit and juice selection above what I normally encounter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJ48 Very comfortable
When checking in the girl at the front desk was very helpful to two weary travelers. Check-in went smoothly. The bed was most comfortable. We appreciated the cleanliness of the hotel. The breakfast experience wasn't too good. We were there about 30 minutes before the breakfast was over. We slept later because of the long journey that we made. There were no cinnamon rolls left when we got there. The woman there said it was too late to cook more. We weren't the only people that were wanting some. They are the highlight of your breakfast there.

I was very pleased to find such a wonderful hotel in an older tourist area. The room was beautiful, the staff courteous, and the breakfast hot. Mattress was a little firm, but overall this was an excellent place to stay. One of the very best Holiday Inn Express experiences.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Granny Pat A real happy camper in Crystal River Fl
I have stayed at this location on several occasions and every time it is the same- A perfect 10. No surprises. Clean, Quiet, and comfy. From the desk clerk to the buffet attendant ,to the maintenance people, and on to housekeeping staff they are all so dedicated to being the best they can be for you. Not to mention their friendly attitudes and their overwhelming attention to all details that make your stay a very pleasant one. The Crystal River Holiday Express is consistently the cleanest hotel on the west coast- bar none. Very spacious rooms with extremely comfortable beds & nice linens. Free in-room internet available for your business needs. Room & Lobby furnishings here are above average for a hotel at comparable rates. Hey, don't forget their free breakfast buffet. Nice assortment of real breakfast items not the continental deal. Stop by check it out for yourself you will not be disappointed I promise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Central Florida Traveler Highly recommend
Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was a very positive experience. I would have rated the hotel excellent simply based upon the clean, comfortable and well furnished rooms, but the hotel staff is simply the best. We met wonderful and friendly employees and manager at check-in, personable and helpful maintenance staff, and 2 amazing ladies who run breakfast every morning. We enjoyed our stay, appreciated the fine folks who work at the hotel, and look forward to staying with them again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bajabean Excellent Stay!
We like a good value, and we got more than that! From making reservations, to getting checked in, to the spacious room, to the excellent breakfast, and getting checked out -- everyone was incredibly friendly, helpful, and bent over backwards for us. We were impressed! Highly recommend this place! (And go swim with the manatees while you are here!!! It's only 3 minutes away.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great advice and information about manatee tour
Imran helped so much in preparing us for the manatee tour. We had a lot of questions. Also, he volunteered to extend our checkout time by an hour so that we would have time to shower after the tour. This was our second stay at this property, and each time we have enjoyed the experience. This time we met Mary, the breakfast lady, who also made us feel welcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bonnie & Clyde The only place to stay in Crystal River (in our opinion)
We went to Crystal River to swim with the Manatee's.
This hotel is by far the best Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed at, the showers are tops, from check inn to check out this is place is exquisite and they even have a compimentary breakfast which starts at 6:30am.
We ate at Cody's Roadhouse, it was like home, excellent food and the staff is tops and the beer is cold, a one pound t-bone with baked potato for $14.95, two for one beers during happy hour, unreal in todays market, it is where the local congregate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ManateeJack Great Location for Manatee Swim
Very nice, clean, comfortable accommodations. Great hotel location for the taking in the manatee swim through the American Pro Dive Center. Continental breakfast served early enough the morning of the manatee swim to enjoy something to eat and still make the 6:30 am dive appointment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boats1 This is a wonderful family friendly hotel
The breakfast is wonderful there and the little elderly lady(Mary I think) was so friendly and keep everything so clean and greated everyone with a smile. She made you feel you were at home. Our family lives close by and this is our second time going there and we have told everyone this is one of the best hotel we stayed in. My husband is retired military and we have traveled a lot and I can say this is the hotel that has made us feel safe, and so much at home and is the cleanest. We will be going back there again. Thank you for the wonderful visit we have had.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nightowl7 Everything about this hotel was great.
The staff was very helpful answered all of your questions about where to go and how to get to there.
The beds were very comfortable.
The rooms were clean, large and quiet. I am a person who has a hard time sleeping, it has to be quiet and dark and comfortable.
The breakfast had a very good selection.
The cinnamon rolls were wonderful.
We were able to use the pool and had it all to our self's.
We would stay there again.

We have stayed at this location a number of times. Always very clean, great friendly staff. Rooms are clean and very comfortable both bedding and a/c.
Breakfast includes so many items you have to be able to find something you like.
All staff including front desk, lady who did the breakfast and even a maintenance person asked when they saw us if we were enjoying our stay and if we needed anything.

We were there for the labor day weekend. The room was clean and comfortable. It did not seem the hotel was too crowded even though the parking lot was packed. We went to see Manatee's with Underwater Birds with great success. The hotel was in a great location for us.

I just thought we were finding a place to lay our head... a clean spot. It was NEW, gorgeous, kids were excited, room was clean, spacious, etc. The breakfast really blew us away. Big bang for buck! More like a mid range hotel... not an express... SUPER!

Althopugh the hotel was very clean and the staff was very good, I was not happy with their policy to charge us for a night that we didnt stay . We had to leave due to a problem and were charged for the night anyway. We had three rooms so it was a large sum.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamesTravels Fantastic staff; extremely helpful, courteous, professional
Wonderful Labor Day weekend due mainly to the considerate, thoughtful and always professional staff. From check in to check out, they helped with WiFi, food service, maps and locations, and when we departed leaving some personal effects, they took the time and effort to send them to us. I wish every place we visit had people like this Holiday Inn has.
