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

Sadly we did not have the pleasure of staying at the hotel. We did however have the opportunity to enjoy the manatees tour. Our captain was very informative, very patient and very good at his job. Captain Ed is the bomb in a nutshell. Given the chance I would do this every day of the week and twice on Sunday... More

This hotel is brilliant if you want to visit the beautiful clear waters of Crystal River. Room was very big with two queen beds with a nice view over the canal. Staff were very friendly and attentive and there was a huge pool in the garden. Very close to all the attractions, such as the manatee watching tours!

Mattresses were terrible. Had to walk two buildings over to get ice, the ice and vending machine in our building, orchid building were completely taken out. And was a very noisy place. We took my husband,s daughter and her husband with us and they could hardly wait to leave. Checked out 1 day early. Carpets in hallways tcky looking.

I recently spent two nights in this hotel. The grounds and setting are lovely and the restaurant food was very good. Everyone was friendly and attentive. My only complaint about The Plantation is the condition if the carpeting. The elevator carpet smells and much of the carpeting that I saw were stained or had an old musty smell. I understand... More
