Came to swim with the Manatee's and my sister was staying here with her Acadia Institute of Oceanography Students so we we decided to stay as well. All I can say is the staff is great and the property is perfect. We swam with the Manatee's on Thanksgiving and the Friday after and when we returned, we had Thanksgiving dinner... More

We went to the Plantation with the boat for my birthday weekend. The room was not all that great and th ewhole place is way over due for an update. The docking was first come first serve. It's a concrete sea wall with PVC pipes pushed into the bottom to keep your boat off the wall, very shallow so be... More

We stayed here the weekend after Thanksgiving and had an amazing experience. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff are all friendly and accommodating and there were no issues with parking or getting in and out of the hotel. The hotel was decorated for Christmas and the staff really did a great job with this. We were in... More

This is a well decorated spot to bring the family during the Holidays from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It encompasses golf, tennis, a dive shop, boat tours and rentals, holiday buffets (reservations need to be made at least a month in advance), tiki bar with delicious hamburgers, swimming pool and jacuzzi, ample room space. There is yard enough for a friendly... More

We booked a two night fishing package and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are good-sized and look newly redecorated. It was so convenient to have a full buffet breakfast overlooking the pool and bay/river, then walk to the dive shop/dock for a day of chartered fishing. After a day on the water, having a drink at the tiki bar... More

Stayed here for two nights because of a fishing expo that was being held here. Loved the way this Inn looked on the outside. My idea of what Old Florida looked like. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The reception area is nice with a bar right off the main lobby. All looked great until I got to our... More

Thanks for the support of our two day conference. I didn't stay here so can't comment on the rooms or facility. The conference area served our needs very well though and customer service was excellent. We had everything we needed.

Had an enjoyable stay for 2 nights this past weekend (08/26 - 08/28). The Plantation Inn is an entertaining place to stay but lacks some finer points in respect to overall conditions of the bldgs. and rooms. Every Door was extremely noisy in that they creaked and slammed, so that you heard everyone that was coming and going into the... More
