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.

Plantation Inn is clean and nicely redecorated since I last visited 10 years ago. The rooms do have a mini fridge. The staff is friendly and alway ready with a recommendation for a meal or a local beach trip. The in house restaurant was expensive, with entrees around $20, I am guessing that is where the fridge comes in handy.... More

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
