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

Although I am a single traveler, I was stuck by what a great place this would be for a family reunion or a destination wedding. The amenities are great: pool (with bar), horseshoes, croquette, volleyball, shuffleboard - things to keep the kids entertained. Across the street there is a 27 hole golf course and tennis courts. At the marina there... More

Stayed 2 nights for work and as far as hotels go in Crystal River, this place is pretty good. Didn't get to experience much of the grounds/hotel but the room was clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Probably your best option in Crystal River. The room was clean, the food at the restaurant was very good, we had breakfast and dinner the two days we stayed there. I don't think it was worth the amount we paid, but we had a nice stay. The staff at the tiki bar wasn't very friendly and we got ignored every... More

I was part of a convention that stayed at Plantation for 4 days. Great location and loved the hotel. Spacious water view room with king bed and all the usual amenities including a small fridge. The grounds are well kept and there is plenty to do onsite. Golf course, croquet court, shuffle board, huge pool with tiki bar as well... More

Had a lovely stay during a group conference at the Plantation. Stayed about six years ago and was very pleased with the accommodations this time in the newer Rose building. Very nice, spacious king room with a view of the canal leading to the river. We even spotted a manatee from our window - the family that was on the... More

We had booked in advance for one night, arrived and spontaneously decided to stay another night. We had a spacious two-queen room with garden view, which was nicely furbished and had a spacious bathroom. Everything was extra-clean and quiet. Breakfast and dining in the restaurant was excellent, as was the service. The location is wonderful with breathtaking views on the... More

We stayed at one of the two-level golf villas....not that we play golf, but for the extra space since we were traveling with our teenager. The size of the space is great, but the finishes are very dated and even back in the day were on the level of the cheap builder's special. The upstairs bed was very comfortable and... More
