Lots of Roaches and NOT as advertised.
Submitted: September 6, 2011
Stayed: September 2011
The empty box of roach motels in kitchen garbage can were a warning that the owner / cleaner knew about the roach infestation. 12 roach motels under couches and beds, roach feces (and motels) in kitchen drawers, cabinets and on dishes! Roaches came out of the toaster when turned on!
Other than the bug issue it is advertised to have a hammock, satellite TV, Video Game Console, Video Games, Stereo System and music library. It has NONE of these. The owner said they were stolen by renters and the hammock was removed for "liability issues" but they still advertise them! "Full kitchen" does not represent the fact that there is no dishwasher.
If they cleaned the roaches and advertised correctly you have a 1950's era home, with original bathrooms, windows and window dressings. The house is all original except the tile floors, refrigerator and range. It is on a canal with a partial view of Kings Bay, obstructed by overgrown vegetation. I have never stayed at a Motel 6 but if I did this is what I would expect.
Crystal River is a beautiful area with a lot of older homes on the water. As a frequent visitor to the area I was not expecting the Ritz but I was expecting it to be complete with advertised amenities, and free of cockroaches and cockroach traps. A few can sneak in when a door opens, ok, but not throughout the kitchen, in the cabinets, and flying (inside) the home when the lights are out.

Owner's Response: The empty boxes of home cooked foods in the garbage can were a warning that the guest/poster knew beforehand how to finagle a FREE vacation. 12 empty alcoholic beverage containers, 3 empty home cooked pizza boxes, toaster waffle & english muffin boxes, etc. Obviously, this group had a busy Labor Day vacation fully using all kitchen drawers, cabinets and dishes. Not withstanding the floating boat dock and full accommodations for an entire family & dog.
After returning home with no complaints to us at all, (phone records confirm) he canceled his credit card payment for the full amount. Nice…
Please enjoy genuine reviews from paying customers. This one was not.

The home is truly understated and more delightful than advertised. All amenities are naturally available to all guests. Just let us know how we can help.
Grace and Peace,
