The staff at this resort were outstanding. They went out of their way to help with any issues we had during our three day stay. The restaunt was very nice and the food was delicious. They did not do room service but if food was ordered you could pick it up at the outside bar.

The best part of the hotel is the location. Crystal River is a beautiful, peaceful place. This is a nice hotel. Our room was nice , and had a view of the river. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The town is so very small and I think that this is the only nice venue in town.... More

We only called in for lunch at the Tiki Bar as we were passing through. The location was great right on the water next to the pool. We ordered lunch to go with our drinks. However, it seemed to take an age as the servers had to go to the kitchen to find out when the food was done. This... More

My wife and I came down for a little R&R. We always use tripadvisor to choose a place we have never been. The Plantation in Crystal River was just such a place. We were greeted with by great staff. The hotel was nice and yes a little dated, but you can see they are making progress toward classic yet trendy... More

We booked the hotel based on the pictures on the internet and what it showed it had to offer. We had two rooms that overlooked the parking lot side by side. The outside had some very establish nice greenery. It had been raining prior to our arrival and the sidewalks held water. It was a mess to walk through. The... More

Poor set up for ice. Machine was out most days, had to get ice at dinner for the room. We stayed Thursday to Monday, Saturday night they had 3 or 4 major... More

I have stayed here before, and had hoped that this year's stay would be better than last year's. It wasn't. As a matter of fact? The place is even worse than ever. Same issues: stinky old carpeting in halls and rooms, mattresses from 1960 with sheets that don't even cover them up, rusty and moldy tubs, black mold around doors... More

As others have stated, there aren't many nice hotels in Crystal River. The Plantation is nice, albeit the rooms are a bit overpriced for the quality as they are somewhat dated. The grounds are located on the canal and are really nice, as is the pool and outside bar area. Didn't do much else than sleep and use the pool... More

Great place for a relaxing break. We had a junior suite which was very spacious and beds comfy. Room had a fridge and very small coffee maker. Tried out the spa which was very good and staff very friendly. Local heritage village worth a visit with some nice cafes. Crystal river is a lovely place to take a boat. Would... More
