Driving up to the hotel relegates you to a long gone era; a white, stately building that speaks to southern charm and hospitality. The reception and bar grill/grill have a modern yet laid back feel suggestive of relaxation and tranquility, a harmonious retreat in quaint Crystal River. And that's where the southern feel stops. We booked a room on the...

A great hotel that is suitable for the whole family. Amazing opportunities to snorkel with manatees and try out a bit of stand up paddle boarding. We hired a boat for a few hours - great fun. Apart from the very cold wind, we managed to spot a few manatees on our trip. Nice, relaxing pool with very reasonably priced...

It is an Older hotel but renovated quite well. Definitely decent value - even on a holiday weekend. Great service & very friendly staff. Well located. Ample activities that are not expensive ie) tennis, golf, volleyball, croquet etc.

We stayed one night by chance whilst passing. The location is excellent, and the landscaped grounds take full advantage. All public areas are nice, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable, especially considering the reasonable prices. The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard, and was as good as we had anywhere during a three week trip....

We spent a night at the Plantation during a road trip. I have always wanted to see manatees so we stayed here because some reviewers said thy saw some in the canals here, and there is a state park here where the manatees stay. The hotel is large with a lot of rooms in various buildings spread around a beautifully...

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, we stumbled upon the Plantation by chance and loved it! We are now thinking of booking our wedding at the Plantation, can't wait to stay there again! The restaurant was already booked because of our late arrival but looked very nice.

If you are looking for The Ritz, this isn't it. However, if you are looking for a great time in old Florida, you have found it. Our second story room overlooking the canal was very clean. Check in and check out could not have been faster. Breakfast buffet on Sunday was okay. The tiki bar was great, with wonderful service....

You can tell that it's an aged property. The ants put me off a bit but they tried their best to get rid of them with only a few remaining. The toilet paper is rough, an upgrade is in order. Room service would be the most welcome addition to the whole place. The bathroom looked like they tried very hard...

This was a perfect stay for me and my family. The hotel is beautiful with old plantation charm. We traveled from California to come and go scalloping. Having grown up in Florida, it is one of my favorite past times and I wanted to bring my family to experience it. Our rooms were comfortable. It was nice that we had...
