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

The location of this resort is absolutely amazing. It feels like you've gone back in time. The people are friendly. The tikki bar is well stocked and serves good bar food. The beds are comfy and clean. There's lots to explore in this neck of the woods. I've been back numerous times and taken my grown up family, who all... More

We love this place right on the river, no frills but welcoming, friendly and cozy! Older motel type (one story) with some kitchen units. Rooms are very clean and a good size but as I said, older so the bathroom with toilet and shower is small but the sink area is outside of the bathroom with lots of counter space.... More

This was our second visit to MacRae's it's definitely built for fisherfolk but even as non fishers this is a great spot. The whole family appear to be friendly and are welcoming. There is coffee always available in the main reception along with a microwave and BBQ outside along with laundry and ice. The rooms and decor are basic but... More

The rooms for this place is zero frills, but I suppose the accommodation should not be the highlight of the trip to Homosassa. We came here to do a scallop caravan (or whatever those group tours are called). Unfortunately, there were no scallops to be had. We tried in about four places, but none of the boats caught anything. After... More

Wow, what a great place to unwind. Cell coverage is spotty at best, which equates to really great vacation time. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and the best part of my time there was getting to know the friendly locals. The shuckers will be waiting at the dock and will prep your scallops after a day of scallop... More

Up to do some scalloping. This is really old Florida. The room was spotless, had coffee and a flat screen tv. From the porch you looked out at their outdoor bar with live music and the Homosassa river. Dinner was near by at the Monkey Bar (looks out on Monkey Island) again with live music and great food. I had... More

My wife and I decided to do a mini-vacation, a scalloping trip to Homosassa, Fl. We wanted to stay at a motel close to the river action and experience the old natural Florida. Luckily MacRae's had a vacancy and we booked it for 2 nights. We were told we could check in at 3:00PM, but we were running late, so... More
