Found this charming resort in Crystal River. Felt like a little bit of a throw back. Seriously, a little bit dirty dancing a little bit caddy shack. Golf was good we saw two gators and plenty of birds. Pool was fun and relaxing. Dinner at west 82 was excellent enjoyed the great bar service every night with Mike.

My date and I spent an evening here and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone was courteous and attended to our needs. It's on the water just off King's Bay but easily accessible to other local attractions. We will be back again!

Wife and I went for 2 days on a weekend short road trip. The grounds and main building are of true southern vintage...beautiful. Had a room facing the water on first floor, we just walked out and there was the canal for fishing, boating or just taking a nice walk. Nice pool, tiki bar, volley ball and more. You can... More

Considering the room rate, this is a fairly good value with amenities such as large pool, river views, boat docks and launch, restaurant and gift shop. This is an old establishment that has been through several renovations, and could use a few more. Walls are thin, so if you snore, you'll be in good company. You also can hear all... More

Plantation was a very good value. There is a pool, sand volleyball, large checkers/chess, shuffleboard, croquet, corn hole, and a marina for rentals of pontoons, kayaks, john boats, and charters. The grounds were beautiful and the food reasonably priced for a hotel. The only complaint that I had was the fact that the beds were doubles and not queens.

We found the Plantation Inn to be a great base to visit Crystal River. The common areas (lobby, bar, dining room, pool and grounds) are very welcoming, attractive and well maintained. We found the accommodations to be comfortable, but becoming worn and dated. It was particularly frustrating to be without hot water on one morning. On another occasion there was... More

We stopped in here and took a manatee tour the following morning. This is a very nice hotel - the rooms were large and clean - the bed was excellent. We just stayed overnight, but it was a pleasant experience and we would stay again and would highly recommend.

This is a beautiful facility with many amenities. Marina with rental boats, dive shop, 18 hole golf course, etc. However, the food in the restaurant does not match the excellence of the rest of the facility. Six dinners and they were mediocre.

The plantation itself is beautiful, nice rooms great grounds renovations were going on but not bothersome good staff. Only problem we had was a lot of the amenities were closed or not available yet we still had to pay the resort fee. No workout room, no shuttle to beach, no chairs or umbrella available. Ran out of towels at one... More
