The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Don't miss swimming with the manatees with Plantation Adventure Center.

The golfing course at the Plantation on Crystal River is a good resort track. The greens aren't particularly quick but they are fairly true. The rest of the course has always been in decent shape, better in April than October, the two times we've been. The layout is interesting and varied. Not too difficult but difficult enough that you have... More

Overall, our stay was fine for the price. The kids loved the swimming pool. It's a good size and never gets too deep. The hot tub was out of order. Staff were friendly. I thought our room seemed kind of worn, especially the carpet. One of the outlets on the lamp was broke. We reported it, but I guess since... More

Set in a great location to enjoy the water & wildlife. The manatees swim up right behind the hotel. Consider a boat tour, renting a john boat or doing the snorkel tour. The golf courses are well maintained and the personnel there are helpful & great reps for the facility.

Aside from the paper thin walls and the lack of a discount for their diving with manatees tour if you stay there (which is why I didn't book my tour through them), this place is pretty okay. Very nice grounds, nice little pool, and I really liked how the back of the property is right on the canal. You'd probably... More

The Plantation Inn is a delightful place to stay under any circumstances. The rooms were well-appointed and the river view rooms are lovely. We took a pet and he, too, was welcome. The Experience of staying at the Plantation Inn was greatly enhanced by the included manatee swim experience. Though we were at the end of the season Captain Jeff... More

We had a great stay! Breakfast was great! We had the buffet. Excellent service. The pool was very nice. It is heated and open until 11. The tiki bar is right by the pool. You can order lunch or dinner to the pool. They make great drinks. Super friendly bar tenders! There is a dive shop on site with boat... More

Stayed 2 nights, great spacious room and comfortable bed. Can't wait to come back. Only bad thing I can say is that finding the correct room can be difficult. Hint: doors to the corridors are to the side of the buildings. (Put numbers on the outside of the buildings with arrows to the doors)

Great easy place to stay - be sure to ask for the "newer" area - older rooms smell musty. Rooms large and comfortable. Great restaurant, food, and customer service. Nice Sunday Brunch. Close to everything and Crystal River.
