Needs cleaning and updating....
The people that work there are very friendly and nice. The breakfast food in their restaurant was awful - so we decided to NOT eat dinner for our large party there. The hotel is very run down and the 4 out of 5 rooms we booked were in need of a lot. I was frankly embarrassed for the resort. They charge a fairly large price per night so you have an expectation of a nicer hotel....and then you see them and bleeechhh. The carpets are filthy, the walls need to be repainted, there is rotting wood all over outside and ceiling tiles in the halls need to be replaced. There are just too many things that draw you eye to the need for updating/repair/replacement....But the employees were very nice and I hate to see the place like that. I hope they will fix the place up.

DISAPPOINTING VACATION
We Made lemonade out of lemons, We drove so far to get there we weren’t going to look for another Hotel, pool was dirty, allege ,Red ants.I asked a young blond server for a refill for my refreshment for my son she told me he can get it himself at the bar??? Same server who watched her supervisor a young man in a black pollo pick up straws and clean around the pool as she did nothing. The AC in my room 265 was not working right did not sleep well for the 2 days I was there.SAD it wasn’t last vacation with kids before school started

Dirty, Loud, Dirty
Unfortunately it wasn’t a good experience at all, very duty, loud, other guests slamming doors. The service was really good at the front desk and at the restaurant. Crystal River - Three sisters is a must see place, very beautiful!

Great Family Oriented Vacation Destination
We enjoyed our 2-night stay at the resort. The facilities are old and for the most part, have been remodeled with spacious rooms and comfy beds. There is a lot of charm on the property, plus an abundance of things to do. We played golf on the course that is direct across the street. 27 holes and water to contend with on many of the holes. Our only disappointment was with the dinner menu which, like many restaurants that are trying to survive during the COVID-19 crisis, left a lot to be desired. I would really like to find a restaurant today that didn't feature a half-a** menu. It was our anniversary and we were expecting a lot more.

Best people, But it is not clean or kept well
Pool was closed for 3 of 4 days. The halls were very dirty. So the floor was constantly dirty. They did not clean room daily due to COVID, but I needed a broom or something because of the floor. Hotel halls are very sad condition. Elevator was broken. The ladies at desk and the marine area were so kind!
