Stayed here for several nights in August to take advantage of the scallop season. Very busy on Saturday, the line up of boats was amazing. Less so on Sunday and practically deserted on Monday. Our hotel style room was comfortable, could use some rehab but very clean and convenient to the waterfront. The employees we met were universally friendly and helpful. We did not have a freezer in our room and they let us freeze the scallops in an office freezer. They also had unlimited coffee in the office which was very convenient for hotel room guests. Pool is clean and a good stop after all morning in the sun scalloping. Would definitely recommend this place as your stop off to the Homosassa River region.
Regarding the scalloping, Captain Jody Hogan was the best. We went out with him for two days of scalloping and he was patient and helpful. We would go out with him in a heart beat. His boat is right at the Riverside, the scallops can be expertly and quickly cleaned by a group at the pier and he had great explanations of the local river. Thank you, Captain Jody! http://www.homosassafishingcharters.com/captjody.html
