Informative staff, great location, clean and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast selection. Short drive to Homosassa Wildlife Park. Walking distance to Three Sisters Springs. Don't miss swimming with manatees.

We visited for one night before we did a swim with the manatees. This is a charming resort. We were three couples and made a mini vacation of it. We had drinks at the tiki bar, played croquet and shuffle board and had dinner. The facility is lovely, well maintained. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly... More

Everything from booking the room, check in (manatee information bag to help prepare & excite us before our early morning adventure), dinner (crab stuffed lobster & martini specials!) breakfast (a huge array of tasty goodies) & our manatee tour was wonderful! Make sure to ask for Captain Jeff! We were on a week long road trip & by far, this... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The reviews were mixed and I think too critical. Great location, perfect if you want to go snorkeling. The price we got was very good. We went the week after Christmas and the decorations and lights were very well done. We enjoyed the well maintained grounds and the pool area, although it can... More

We took the Plantation Inn manatee trip. Ross was our guide and he was terrific! We swam with the manatees and were able to truly interact with these beautiful creatures !! Ross went out of his way with our 85 year old grandma and made sure she had the manatee experience of a lifetime !!! All three kids had an... More

I was informed by my wife that for Valentine’s Day/her birthday she wanted a trip to Florida to snorkel with the manatees at Crystal River. After a little checking, I learned that the Plantation is about the highest standard they have in Crystal River. I contacted the establishment and made arrangements for our visit. When you arrive in Crystal River... More

Stayed here over Valentine's Day. I usually stay at Hampton Inn b/c they are always affordable and consistent - but this place offered MUCH more for about $30/night more. This hotel sits on the water with plenty to do if you want to relax - pool, hot tub, volley ball, horseshoes,shuffle board, croquet, outdoor bar - all right on the... More

Having studied all locations reviewed on this site for Crystal River, I am glad I selected Plantation Inn. Thanks to other reviewers I knew to book a River View room, not a Garden View (views of parking lot). I asked for a quiet room and that is what I got, even though it was busy. The dining room cannot accommodate... More

There isn't much in Crystal River. We went there to swim with the manatees. This was a perfect spot for us. We got there in the afternoon and had nothing to do. The hotel is right on the river and has an outdoor bar/restaurant. After a bite to eat, which was quite good, we played, shuffle board, croquet and volley... More

We booked our February trip in September as a Christmas present for our daughter to swim with the manatees. When we booked our trip I was given a price and told it included 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner, the 2 nights and the manatee swim for the 3 of us. I decided a couple of days before to call and confirm,...
