I have been coming back to the Riverside Resort since I first stumbled on it 19 years ago. Some stays have been better than others, but if you are looking for natural beauty this is the spot to beat. I just love watching the river and all of its creatures. This location is beautiful and I have found nothing like... More

We've stayed here several times and it's always so much fun! The rooms/suites are spacious (we always have a full kitchen) and clean and the resort is classic old Florida at it's finest. The riverfront rooms have great views and the pool is also right on the riverfront! There are 2 "must do" things when staying here.. Rent a pontoon... More

Kids will love this restaurant as they eat and watch the monkey's on the island just outside the windows. They have good food at reasonable prices, we had the basket meals along with the excellent fish spread as an appetizer. This is a great restaurant to go to after a trip to the Homosassa state park, it's very close by... More

Ok this is not a Hilton or a Marriott but what it IS is a step back into old Florida! You come here to enjoy being on the water~fishing, scalloping, boating, kayaking etc... Our room was clean... with dated furniture and old carpets. We were on the 2nd level on the end so we did not have a noise issue... More

We were road tripping. Stumbled upon this Resort mid week. Reminded me of my childhood experiences on the rivers and lakes in the 70's. It's an older place. Well kept. Updated. Beautiful River and Monkey island is so cool. Great nostalgic Florida. Mantaees and Seeking Watchee springs with the Mermaids are close by...a MUST SEE!!! I would love to move... More

This is the second time we stayed at the Riverside Resort and we will come back. This place has a lot to offer you while at the resort. The marina has several captains that will take you fishing, manatee watching, scalloping, site seeing and dinner cruises. While having a drink at the bar, you can watch the monkeys play just...

This is our second stay at Homosassa Riverside Resort. The 2 bedroom waterfront rooms in Villa II and Villa III have been excellent stays for the location. The room are clean and generous in space and the view from the second floor decks overlooking the river are nice. The staff are friendly & helpful. The location is great for walking... More

After reading some of the other reviews I want to add that you should pay extra for the river view. We stayed in villa 4 and were in the bottom floor rooms closest to the restaurant area. As long as we arrived early (before the eating and drinking bunch) we parked our car right outside our room/s. It is actually... More

This is a tale of 2 rooms. The 1st night was spent in Villa III [where we stayed 10 years ago]. There was a slight improvement like nice mattresses and a flat screen TV. That's about it. Our room was so bad that we requested an upgrade to Villa II the next morning. The walls are so thin and the... More
