This is the perfect place to stay if you are eager to go on a manatee adventure! The Plantation Inn is conveniently located especially if you book a tour with Manatees in Paradise. We were warmly greeted at check-in. Our room was quite clean and just right for our needs. We enjoyed the use of the hot tub as well... More

We travelled all over Florida the week of Dec 22nd through Dec 31st, 2014. We stayed at all sorts of places and this was our favorite of them all. First off, the customer service was top notch, the employees always made us feel special. Secondly, the rooms had the quietest air conditioning units of any the hotels we visited -... More

This was our first time here. First trip in awhile as a family and it was great. Rooms are clean but kind of dated. Wish the tv were more up to date with pay per view and such. After long days at the heated pool and the next one swimming with manatees! Yes tons! Better tv options are needed for... More

This my second stay here and it was different than our last one. Some pluses and minuses. First, we got a crazy good price on the room from Priceline so that was the deciding factor. When we arrived we agreed to a room change and were placed in the very last building. The options to get to the main building... More

This was our second visit to the Plantation inn. We love the quaint atmosphere and southern charm. The rooms are very large, clean and decorated well. A great value!

The location was on a very active fishing river with Manatees. The pool, shuffleboard, horse games were available for good old fashioned fun. The rooms were a bit dated but we're clean with all the needed amenities snorkeling ,fishing and kyacking trips were available right on the grounds.

This seems to be the fancy option in town, but the price was very reasonable. Room was very clean, nice toiletries etc, great comfy beds, fast internet, hot tub by the pool for those chilly nights, awesome! The golf course is great too, nice setting between all the mossy trees, and $20 p/p for 9 holes including everything! Would definitely... More

Stayed 3 days, Nov. 2014, warm and breezy days by the river, sipping drinks by the pool (Tiki bar outside service), comfy rooms, and excellent restaurant. We often escape the cold weather north of here by coming to the Plantation Inn for a few days. Friendly staff, too. Lovely setting, and elegant atmosphere. Dive shop, manatees, river boat rides, kayaks,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel could use a little updating but overall nice and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The manatee tour is a must at this place. Really the main reason to stay here and if you like to golf. The grounds are pretty. Looks just like a plantation. And location is close to... More
