I was here for four days and stayed in the Rose building, it's the one at the very end of the parking lot. During the stay everything was great. Lots to do such as boating, fishing, golfing, & scalloping. The restaurant was very nice. We had breakfast there everyday, lunch atleast twice and dinner a couple of times in that... More

Nice large room , small but functional bathroom! Reason for but is the room you select can make or break stay. We were in new remodeled area and great! No mildew or mold smells as some complained. Would stay again!! Great boat parking! Ice machine too small empty every afternoon!

Weathered out from going to the Bahamas we scrambled to find another destination for several days away and we chose the right place by going to the Plantation on Crystal River. Old Florida at it's finest. We enjoyed fishing with Marrio Costello of Tall Tale Charters and then hit the scallop grounds for an afternoon of what I equate to... More

I just spent two nights and three days at this wonderful hotel. It is on the west coast of Florida in Crystal River, FL, and is peaceful as it is away from the hussle of the big city. That also includes away from all the big city noise. It has nice size rooms, the place is clean and everything is... More

We live about a hour and twenty minutes away and were really hoping this place would be somewhere we could go to often but we were scheduled to stay 4 nights and left after the first night and we only stayed there that night because we were exhausted!!!! The rug was discustingly dirty! So dirty I wouldn't even let my... More

We visited the Plantation on Crystal River along with our son, daughter-and-law, and 18 month old grandson. We booked two rooms for two nights to scallop in the Gulf. Our son took his boat and we took our kayaks. The Plantation has a ramp and very long sea wall to dock your boat. An incredible time was had by all!... More

Even though the hotel had a musty odor in the room and hallways, we weren't too disturbed. When they had not recorded our request for early check-in, we just went for a pleasant walk. As we walked, it wasn't difficult to notice various bits and pieces peeling off of the hotel. The grand pillars at the entrance were cracked and... More

The hotel seems like something that once were, but haven't been kept in good condition. Now is seems more like a school camp area, and unfortunately three out of the four of us were bitten by bedbugs during the one night we stayed there. The young lady at the reception was far from polite. Only one of our rooms were... More

This location was beautiful. In all my travels, I've always stayed in traditional hotels. This location was very difference then what you would get from a chain hotel. The location is not as large as the pictures make it appear to be however, it offers a lot of onsite bonuses. There is a onsite spa, restaurant, and dive shop. Overall... More
