He was always friendly and suggested a great place for breakfast. If renting a pontoon boat I hope you are lucky enough to have Dustin as your guy!!! Also, Paul... More

We stayed here right before the 4th of July weekend. The rooms were great. They were very clean and spacious. AC can be adjusted to get very cold so that is a plus. No issues with he rooms whatsoever. The location is great. You can paddle to the 3 sister springs or head out the river to go scalloping. It... More

We visited the Plantation for the first time from Daytona Beach, FL. I took my daughter on the Manatee Tour. We had the best time, Captain Ed is very knowledgeable of the area and the Manatees, he put us right where the Manatees were, a mother and her baby. My daughter loved this experience and this is thanks to Captain... More

Arrived and within 3 hours was checking out. The staff was very friendly but each room we got had a smell that was worse than the previous one. We had dogs and it seems that they put us in the worse rooms. It is old and needs updating. The restaurant was ok. They need a lot of updating and thorough... More

Staff are friendly and accommodative. This is a pet friendly hotel. Our first room was next to a noisy dog. We were moved to the non pet section which was much better. The room was also more recently refurbished. Be sure you are away from the pool which can be loud when the hotel is busy. Do not pay extra... More

People so very kind here!! Go the extra mile. Restaurant food was OK. Drinks were very good! Landscape beautiful! Rooms were dated but clean. Hallway carpet in desperate need for replacement!! Wall's are thin. Could hear the man snoring on one side and the lady singing at 7:30 am on the other...The upside, she did have a lovely voice. ;)... More

I arrived at the hotel for a late check in. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and showed me where my room was on the map. I made it to the room and when I walked in everything looked fine. I put my bag on the floor and noticed a bug on my arm. I flicked it... More

Set in a dead, sad little town it was ok. Trying to be a luxury destination but missing the details. The room was out dated and sad looking-smelled overwhelmingly of cleaner. Mold on the bathtub. The pool was quaint but clean and nice. Restaurant was ok-again, trying to be luxury but not quite making it although you could see they... More
