Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by manateelover comfortable and clean
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.

A relatively newer, cleaner hotel. Convenient to lots of Crystal River. Front desk people are friendly, rooms are clean, breakfast is hot.

There are certainly places in Crystal River with charm and old-Florida attitude, but the Holiday Inn Express is clean, comfortable and consistent.

Very pleased with our stay, the front desk gentleman was very helpful. He recommend Pecks Old Cove Seafood Restaurant, which was great. The hotel room was nice and clean. For breakfast we had the option of cinnamon rolls, cheese omelet, some fruit, bacon, biscuits and gravy, cereal, and yogurt. Which reminds me the little lady that works the food area is quite the hard worker. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janet101 Great stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The warmth of our welcome set the tone for our visit. We had a two king bed room which was very large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was well equipped with plenty of towels. Requests for information regarding places to eat were met with plenty of suggestions and menus. A phone call was made to one establishment to find out about live music. The hairdryer in the room did not work but was immediately replaced when reported to the front desk.
Two very small issues: the entrance drive was not well signposted and we missed it first time and although the front desk personnel were very helpful in providing information about places to see manatees there was not a display of tourist attractions that might have enhanced our wider appreciation of the area..

Stayed for one night while in Crystal River to see the manatees. Cannot overstate how friendly the staff was. Very convenient location, and I would return in a heartbeat.

My fiancé had a migraine( we drove from ny to Florida) & needed a quite room and we were accommodated nicely. The gentleman Imran was extremely nice & helped us. I signed up for the rewards & he slept off the headache. We got to enjoy my family and had a restful sleep. When we checked out my aunt checked in for 2 nights. I would stay here again, thank you

I was very impressed with the Hotel for this area. Its not only one of the newest in the area its the cleanest and best one I know of. I love fishing here over the past decade but brought my girlfriend and didn't want to stay in one of the "economy" hotels common to this area so this was perfect. Central location. Beds and bathrooms were excellent. The décor and lobby just made it more pleasant. Extra parking in the back was good for boat in tow but not as visible as I hoped back there. No problems at all though. I will stay here again.

We love staying at Holiday Inn Express hotels Great service, friendly staff, good breakfast. Best of all no smoking and no pets,we recommend your hotels to all of our friends and family that want to stay in a great hotel and not have to deal with smoking and pets. Hope you never change those policies. We went scalloping and this hotel was less than a mile from the boat. There are lots of restaurants near by too.

My family and I stopped through August 6th for an opportunity to see the Manatees and decided to spend the night here. From the time we walked in, we were greater by some of the best staff I have ever had the opportunity to stay with. I spend almost 8 weeks a year on the road, and I can say the team here is in top 1% of anywhere I have ever stayed. They went out of their way with making reservations for us for tours, had excellent advice on where to dine(granny's for breakfast is a must), and even had breakfast items out early so we could grab a bite on our way out.
Will definetly be back on our next trip through this area

Everything was great. The front desk is friendly and helpful. The kitchen staff was exceptional. My husband came down just before the breakfast was closing and they loaded the pancake maker so he could get his pancake fix. Great location.

We stayed here the first time in July 2012 and were very pleased by friendly staff and cleanliness of our room. We stayed again July 2013 and will book another room when we return to Crystal River, possibly in 2014.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KOR123 Business/Scalloping trip
Our family stayed at this hotel with several other families for a weekend of scalloping and business meetings. The hotel was clean which is always a priority. The staff, for the most part was polite, except for one of the managers named Alex. He was very rude, unhelpful and would not honor our rate which another manager already approved. The day we arrived he tried to add an extra $40 a night to our rooms. I had to call customer service which worked out a deal with him that only added $20 a night to our stay. We were also kicked out of the pool before 10pm which is the time the pool closes. The breakfast was great and the rooms were clean. The beds were very hard and not too comfortable. I would stay there again and hope I don't run into Alex. We stay at Holiday Inn at least 20 times a month on business and would expect extra special service not subpar service

The hotel was clean and new. Mgmt and staff was extremely accommodating, helping to modify our reservation at the last minute. Emron, the mgr was very helpful, from booking the reservation to check in and out. The pool was clean and refreshing. Bathrooms were updated and clean. Best part was 2 king size beds!!! Would definitely stay there again and recommend to other visitors.
