Great location close to both Historic downtown and the business district main drag. Walking distance to great restaurants and Kroger. Quite and peaceful. Dated but clean and will go back again. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. Phil and Kimberly

My family decided at the last minute to drive closer to where my son was competing in the Spartan Race last Sunday. We stayed at Plantation In and were very delighted. The beds weren't the best but the staff was more than awesome. At this time of year people seem to be afraid to share anything Christian. When you walk... More

A friend travels and stays here regularly and at his recommendation I made reservations. My spouse and I stayed 2 nights. The decor is dated and no flat screen as described online. However the room was over clean and quite and the bedroom over comfortable. The desk employee was helpful. We did not try the hot breakfast. I would come... More

Most of our business comes from repeat customers & referrals. We'll try hard to live up to expectations. I'd thought we had flat screen TV's in all the rooms but had forgotten that we've not replaced the larger TV's in the suites. We'll plan to do so. We're glad you found your room clean & comfortable. Please bring your spouse... More

Plantation Inn feels like home away from home with a great staff and the owners are hands on. The pool side is quite, clean and plenty of room to swim and cook out with a grill on the premises.
