We had a nice very large room with a great location right on the river with a small walkout patio that was within short walking distance to pool area. The staff was great and the grounds are well kept and the quiet beautiful river area was very relaxing. The hotel had many activities and games available with croquet, shuffle board,...

The hotel is in a great location. It has a nice view where you can see a manatee swimming around and the sunset. It also is right around the corner from the springs. I liked the rum punch buckets. The front desk was especially helpful. The only major downfall and that was that the room has a very musty smell....

We stayed here for two nights and it really is a lovely hotel with good amenities.The only issued that we had was the fact that pets are welcome and there was some dog mess on the grassy area next to the lake which is always unpleasant. The hotel advertises that it is newly refurbished but the basin in our room...

Went on a bus tour with a group of friends and stopped here for their Sunday Buffet. We couldn't have picked a nicer place. The food was absolutely delicious and varied. Walking around the grounds was a treat for the eyes. Everything was well maintained, beautiful and relaxing. We would have liked to have stayed longer, but time would not...

I visited Plantation on Crystal River for a few days before and after attending a conference and I really like this place. The place is clean, peaceful, cozy, and the customer services is really good. In general, people were friendly. I ordered a piza (peperoni and black olives) and it was tasty. I did not have problems with my bills...

We stayed at Plantation only one night, unfortunately. This place is so beautiful, I wish we could have stayed there much longer. Great location, great hotel, in one word everything was perfect. It was a great surprise to find such a nice place.

We've seen the views of the sunset/sunrise of Channel 8 news & wanted to see it for ourself. Just a lovely location. We had a drink at the bar - hoping to see a manatee. no luck there but did spend a pleasant hour talking to folks. One of these day we'll have to stay here at the hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel. Our room was updated, clean and tastefully decorated with white bed cover. The bathroom had new tile and countertop. It also has a mini fridge. I did not smell the musty smell other reviews mentioned. It was a beautiful room in a beautiful hotel. The pool was wonderful right on the river with a nice...

I was so pleased to find this property for a trip to visit family in the Homosassa/Lecanto area. Among other options (like a Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn - which are essentially a hotel on the side of a busy road), the Plantation on Crystal River really stands out. The river is right there, making for a beautiful view and...

We loved it. Only stayed a night passing through town but would have definitely stayed longer. Beautiful grounds, relaxed atmosphere, kids fished from the bulkhead, swam in the pool and played games while we grabbed a drink at the tiki bar and relaxed.
