5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A fine hotel. Room was clean with two double beds and a efficient clean bathroom. Restaurant and Bar were centrally located with a good menu. Breakfast buffet was excellent with quality choices. The grounds and pool were inviting. Price seemed reasonable at approx $117. for two adults. Staff were friendly and helpful. Next winter I hope to book the Plantation... More

The rooms, lobby, grounds and pool area are all clean and attractive. And the staff was friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant was a little spendy and the restaurant doesn't stay open late enough. The cleaning service was not the best. They forgot to make the room up one day and then bugged us over and over another day.... More

We went to the Crystal River area to go kayaking for 4 days last October. The hotel is located in the perfect spot to use as a home base. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. There is a boat ramp on the property where you can launch and paddle Kings Bay and Three Sister Springs. The pool was a... More

Great upscale hotel, clean, friendly staff, great restaurant and bar.. Right on the river, grounds are very scenic. Book a fishing, boating or manatee excursion right with the Hotel. Lots to do in one package.

We spent New Years here and attended their party. The hotel is great and the food in the dining room was superior to what we typically get at hotels. The staff was great as well. the only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the food for the new year party was just so so.

The Plantation is like stepping back in time a little- rooms are spacious and bright will all amenities you could want. We enjoyed the cruise to see the manatees- saw many and also an amazing pod of dolphins who were feeding. We had dinner at the restaurant, West 82, and the food was wonderful with a lovely view of the... More

Older resort but very well kept. Our room was nice, spacious and updated. It has many things to do on property. We walked around the resort and did see 3 manatees in the canal, that was pretty exciting. Front desk and hotel bar staff were all very friendly and professional.

This is an older place but is kept pristine. The customer service is decent but I do feel like when you walk into a lobby of a resort and they arent busy you should always be greeted which didnt happen. But the pool and hot tub are clean, the grounds are mowed and beautiful and definitely seemed the premier place... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Plantation for three nights while visiting family in the area, and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. Beautiful, peaceful grounds, friendly staff, excellent outdoor pool and very hot jacuzzi. We stayed in a basic "parking lot view" room on the 2nd floor of the Rose Wing, but as it... More
