We were here for one night as a part of our Florida holiday. It was very nice and comfortable rooms and good service. There is a nice view and good pool area. We could easily have stayed for a week:-)

Very nice motel - the rooms are luxurious. We enjoyed out stay. The pool is very big. There is a tiki bar by the pool. How many motels have croquet wickets set up? not many - we didn't play, but I was impressed

I tried in vain to get a reservation here two nights ago. I requested a river view Jr. Suite, preferable on the second floor. The gentleman handling my reservation told me he wasn't showing any jr. suites. I asked is that because they're sold out or you don't have them. "I'm not showing any" was his answer. I said I...

Took the family to do some scalloping, I have stayed at the Plantation before and I think it's great, clean rooms, nice beds, can dock the boat right outside your room, great location! The parking is a little tight but if you have a big pick up or SUV there is plenty of parking away from other vehicles on the... More

Writing this from the Hampton Inn in Crystal River (which is wonderful, by the way). Our reservation was through ChoiceHotels.com, which the front desk blamed for the failure to disclose pertinent information; however, I just checked the hotel's on website, and the information is also misleading there. We booked a villa. At a resort. There is no resort. The "villa"... More

Dear valued Guest, I am sorry we failed to meet you expectations during you recent visit with us. We do have many families that very much enjoy our golf villas and being on that side of our 320 acre property that has two golf courses three restaurants as well as a full service marina and pool with our tiki bar...

Thank you Captain Ed for a great experience with the manatees. Our family had a great time! The hotel was very nice too. We stayed in a Jr. Suite and it was very spacious and comfortable. A few light bulbs were out but other than that everything was good. Nice pool however the bar and food service did not open... More

First of all, let me explain the situation. We checked-in and got a room, went to the room, opened the door and there was another family in that room! Then we got another room, the one originally assigned, went there and then the key wasn't working.. Finally (three time is a charm) we got in our room. It was a... More

We had a King room. Said it was "garden view" but the view was actually the parking lot (from our little porch area). However we were there for scalloping and not really in our room, so it wasnt a big deal - also there is a back entry door which makes it easy to unload/reload car. They do have water... More

Housekeeping adds cute personal touches. Poolside tiki bar was great... restaurant was excellant and not overpriced. Staff and service throughout was very good! This resort has... More

Great hotel for a good price. Restaurant has great fillet mignon. Staff is very friendly. Didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked awesome. This is the perfect place to stay if you are going on a manatee tour. They are very accommodating and allowed us a late check out so we didn't have to drag all... More
