We had a great 5-night stay at Plantation on Crystal River last week! The room rate we booked was so low that we thought we might have booked a not-so-nice place. We were pleasantly surprised with how nice the resort was for such a great price. The plantation feel of the resort gives it a neat ambiance day and night....

Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. Our room was old and needs work. There was mildew in the bathroom and carpet needs to be replaced. We were given a wheelchair accessible room which we did not request. There wasn't a vanity in the bathroom and nowhere to put your toiletries. There was mildew all around the tile and...

We enjoyed a long family weekend at the Plantation on Crystal River - with ages running from 5 - 74 years old. The hotel staff were very accommodating and pleasant, and the recreation activities were incredible. We stayed in the main building, so an easy walk into the dining room, and out the door to the pool, hot tub, life...

Every time I visit Crystal River in the winter, I stay at Plantation. This is a wonderful old hotel, very well situated, and the perfect place to start exploring the area and certainly to swim with Manatees. The rooms are very comfortable, modern and well equipped. With a direct access to the large green garden in front of the river...

We found the accommodation acceptable. Dated a bit but the view, wildlife, and pool area superb. We are here for only 4 nights but are loving the weather and surrounding attractions. Took in the Wild Bill airboat ride in Inverness and tomorrow will do the Homosassa State Park. We went to Three Sisters Spring Trolley Tour and Boardwalk Manatee viewing...

I came as a chaperone for a school trip and was pleasantly surprised! It is definitely an older building but still had everything we needed! I love that the manatee tour is on the grounds! Seemed to have plenty of meeting rooms for business or a beautiful spot for a wedding. The room decor was nice. Beds were very comfortable....

We booked our room through Expedia for a reasonable rate. Our room was spacious and clean, and included a mini fridge. We were pleased with the food and drink menus at the hotel resturant, bar, and outdoor tiki bar. We towed our boat to the resort in order to tour King's Bay and Crystal River in hopes of sighting manatee....

Arrived on a Wed. in early February. Reception and other personnel were very friendly. The grounds were nicely kept and very pretty. However, the pool was cool, and the whirlpool was too hot Our room (handicapped room ) had no shelves or counter space in the bathroom (which is large) so all items (razor, shave cream, deodarant, toothpaste, etc. )...
