The grounds to this Hotel are really beautiful and well kept up. The staff is friendly and they have a little store on site. The rooms are nothing fancy, however, they are clean and comfortable. The view of the river is wonderful and they have a great pool. This place is wonderful for the price.

The place was good clean with a taste of old Florida. The room was nice size and clean. The family and I brought our boat and kept it in the water at the hotel and made three different day trips to explore and check out the St. Johns River. I love this place and hope the management keeps it heading... More

On June 17,2015, my family's weekend at Hontoon did not go well at all due to a group of guys partying and spoiling everyone's peace and sensibilities. In my review, I said we would never return. But then weeks later, while we were in Montana, there was an incoming call from Deland. Hontoon's general manager April was calling to apologize... More

we had such a great time at the island, it was so relaxing. the only thing I wish they did was rent out the bikes over night and provided a small fridge in the cabin. but other than that we had a blast. we will definitely return.

We spent then 4th of July weekend at this wonderful resort. We stayed in room 12 right on the St. Johns River. The view of the river was fantastic. We watched alligators and fish jumping all over the place. I only caught a few fish but was fishing in the heat of the day. We will be back for sure.... More

I just spent several days here with a group who became friends in Florida decades ago and got together to celebrate two milestone birthdays. It could not have gone better. This resort is just so well-run; everyone we dealt with was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, the rooms were spotlessly clean, and the pontoon boat we rented for three days was... More

Great place and wonderful people taking care of their customers. Pip and Marylou were very hospitable. We spent the day on the deck watching the always changing river. If you like hummingbirds like I do you're in for a treat. The property is well landscaped with so many beautiful flowers. Beware of the noseeums, (biting gnats) especially at dusk. I... More

The marina is nicely laid out, with plenty of amenities for full time slip renters. There is a pool and nice bath area. The location is protected and there is little traffic from visitors since it is so secluded. I visited to evaluate keeping a boat there, and it would be my first choice in the Deland area. I understand... More

If you like old Florida, you will love it here. While the accommodations may have been built awhile ago, they are clean, pleasant and comfortable. The staff is absolutely friendly. Renting a pontoon boat to explore the St. Johns River is a must. There is so much to see including a trip to Blue Springs State Park and up the... More
