Lovely resort

Nice resort, spacious room in need of some updating. Beautiful outdoor facilities -- it was a little too chilly during our stay to take full advantage of them. Friendly staff.

I never stayed at the hotel, as I live in the area, but, there are two golf courses. The small one is a short one for warm up, as the holes are about the size of a gallon ice cream tub. The other is a championship fun track with a little bit of every kind of shot in your bag.... More

The Plantation Inn was full of friendly staff and was a great way to ease into a more relaxed holiday vibe. The Plantation is not a 5 star resort but doesn't pretend to be either. The kids really enjoyed swimming in the heated pool in the middle of a cold Florida winter (there is also a hot tub if you... More

The people have been top notch. Very helpful and attentive, trying to help. I asked the desk to help us find an HDMI cable and, even though they couldn't find one, they tried several times. The restaurant is good and the seafood was among the best we've had here. The in room coffee service could be upgraded and adding room... More

We go here to swim with the manatees. The package deal is great. The breakfast is more of a deluxe type hot with a variety of offerings. The beds are great and the staff helpful. At the end of the hotel is the dive shop so it is very convenient to jump into to wetsuit and go on the manatee... More

I read some bad reviews about this hotel but I stayed here anyway. I was greeted by a very friendly front desk clerk and the check in process was very seamless. The lobby has exactly what you would expect in a place called The Plantation. Beautiful winding staircase, wide open space with warm hardwood floor. My room was as nicely... More

We ended up at this beautiful resort after having a bad experience at a change hotel in the area. Our room was spacious and clean. The lobby and entry were very inviting. The front desk staff was helpful in arranging a local tour.

We stayed one night at the Plantation Inn before going on a Manatee tour. The grounds are beautiful, and the rooms are spacious and comfy. Everyone was very friendly from the moment we checked in. We had a great meal and drinks (Thursday night Martini night!) at the restaurant. We definitely will come back when we have more time to... More

Cute place but average. Stayed there for a manatee tour. Heated pool & hot tub was great to warm up after swimming in the river & canals. Bar is cute. Steak dinner was good but tough. She crab soup delish. Refused to let us checkout 2 hrs late since our tour was delayed. We're told they were only at 50%... More

We stayed here during our trip to swim with the manatees, during New Year's Eve 2016. Staff was great and paid attention to every detail. Barbara in the restaurant was friendly, accommodating, and simply outstanding! The NYEve festivities were a lot of fun and we danced into 2016. The hotel is a little dated, but very comfortable. The scenery is... More
