Stayed there and place was fairly clean but no TV or Wifi in the room we were in. Monkey Island just off the shore had at least 5 monkeys on just playing around. We rented a Kayak next door which was ok. The restaurant was just ok. Our food was not great and my drink tasted odd. I would give...

This is a clean, economical hotel right on the water in Homosassa with two restaurants within walking distance. We have stayed here several times and have had very pleasant experiences. Both restaurants have great food with locally caught fresh seafood and drink specials and live music.

There are at least 4 buildings of rooms (villas). I stayed in villa IV, room 407 which is a ground floor room very close to the restaurant and check in counter with direct riverfront access. The room was nice, and included kitchenette. The living room furniture is not comfortable, but we were not sitting inside much. There is a sleeper...

Nice, smaller older place. People are great. Beautiful grounds. Dont expect a big fancy place. This is small and quiet. Restaurant okay. You can watch the boats coming in and going by. Or you can hire a boat to fish or take a tourist ride with a guide. Watch outfor seagulls overhead (yuck)

We were looking for a place to stay over on a Saturday night with the boat after a visit with family in Ocala. We live in the Tampa area and like to go explore on Florida river and gulf towns. We stayed in a one bed room in Villa I on the ground floor. The room was very large with...

This is my second review of the resort, after my 3rd stay out there. This review really would only apply to the upstairs room of villa's 1&2. Be very careful when booking your room you know what you are getting as some rooms dont face the water, or face the water but not have the best view. I have stayed...

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...

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...

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...

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...
