We decided to celebrate my birthday weekend here at the plantation in Crystal River. It is one of our favorite destinations and only an hour away from our home and is located just on Crystal River which is attached to the Gulf of Mexico. Crystal River is a natural spring fed lake and a wonderful attraction. The Plantation Inn is... More

This is a great place to stay if you're there to kayak, tour the area, or see the manatees. The food is very good at the restaurant and the amenities are average for a hotel in this area. The staff is courteous and the place is clean. their boat docks out back and facilities nearby for all types of outdoor... More

This motel's staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, especially Peter. There is so much to do here. There is manatee watching, swimming, golfing, horseshoe throwing, croquet, scalloping, fishing, boating, kayaking and more. It is a peaceful spot right on the canals and the river. We went scalloping with the Tall Tales charter that is located right on the property and... More

I went scalloping for the first time, and enjoyed the Plantation's Scallop Package. While the hotel has a great entrance, the rest of the building/rooms, hallways decor is looking a little tired. Normally this would bother me, but the people working at the Plantation were so lovely and accommodating, that it seemed petty to complain about scoffs and scratches, and... More

We stayed at the Plantation Inn to golf and go scalloping. We were a group of 15 and enjoyed the pool and tiki bar. A good idea to book a package if you can, the breakfast buffet or menu were included for 2 mornings saved some cash for other adventures as did the golf package. Definately need a reservation in...

Nice spacious room and very clean. As this was for 4 people, the coffee maker was very small. In a lovely position by the river and we could moor our boat very near our room. Tried out the spa and was very impressed with the trestment and the staff. A very enjoyable stay.

Great golf! Great facilities and really amazing views of King's Bay. We say multiple manatees and enjoyed the Tiki bar after a few rounds. The Plantation feels local and they go out of their way to accommodate. We will be back.

We stayed at the Plantation on a golf package. The rooms were roomy and the beds very comfortable. After a long day of golf they were very relaxing. They all have small refrigerators that both cool and keep things frozen. We brought drinks and food and there was plenty of room in the fridge. Our room had a smoke alarm... More

We arrived early on a Monday evening, having reserved the family stay and snorkel package. The front desk gal checking us in and delivering our free goodie bag was exceptionally kind and friendly and made our kids' day with a surprise. We quickly grabbed adult drinks from the tiki bar before closing while the kids enjoyed a swim in the... More
