Met friends here after swimming with manatees. Seafood was very good and we had both scallop/shrimp baskets and sandwiches. Not fancy, but relaxing and enjoyable and the view on the river was great. Price was appropiate. Nice place to wind down and relax!

Went there the last week of Scallop season ( never been scalloping before ) did pretty well. After a day on the Gulf headed to Mac Rea"s while they shucked our haul and what a gem. Live music, good food and very FRIENDLY help. This place does have it all. A very nice boat ramp with ample parking, bait should... More

Nice accommodations for a fishing trip. Nothing fancy, but you don't come to the area to stay in a resort...it is a fishing community. I thought the beds were a little uncomfortable and instead of a futon in the living room as the website advertised there was a pull out sofa-bed which was VERY uncomfortable even for my 10 year...

The location is great and very convenient for boaters and the state park up the road. The hotel has just been updated according to their website. Over all the hotel is nice and the stay was quiet more or less. Now for the not so good... The beds really were not the most comfortable and a little on the short... More

Great location for the boat ride to the Manatee swim. Room was clean and newly remodeled. Great front porch for sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Nice coffee maker in room. The TV could have been bigger. The only thing I found strange was that the front desk closed at 6 pm. I think they need to stay open... More

I choose McRae's because it is on the water, right at the city dock, which allowed us to depart on an 8 a.m. manatee tour with minimal morning hoopla. Rooms were quite nice, and clean, with a lovely seating area featuring rocking chairs outside the room. The staff were very hospitable, and we enjoyed eating at The Shed, the restaurant/bar... More

Love this place! I see some listings for the motel etc.. Obviously this particular resort comes under three different listings. Mac raise, Homosassa resort, and the Homosassa Riverside.. Please folks let's make sure we differentiate the reviews! The Riverside is a fantastic place to eat! Mac raise is a fantastic awesome super place to have some beers enjoy the breeze... More

Dive, snorkel, eat, drink, enjoy the wildlife and river. Life is good when you are at MacRae's. And, its about ten degrees cooler here on the river than in town. The barbecue is dockside, so your food is always hot off the grill.

This motel was a perfect place for our low key stay in central Florida. The room was super clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. The staff was helpful & the handyman was always painting or upgrading something. Not repairing but just staying ahead. A great place to stay if you plan on fishing or kayaking in... More

Spent three nights at this hotel/motel. We were rushed to meet manager before 6pm or risk not getting registered. The rooms were under-lit and throughout my stay various lights were always flickering. On one occasion I returned to find that several circuit breakers were tripped. The entire bathroom(sink, shower and toilet) was barely larger than my shower at home. The... More
