Friendly staff, great grounds and excellent restaurant for breakfast for a polished experience. I wish we had more time to explore the area but as we were using the spot for a mid way stop to Sanibel island we only had limited time to check everything out. Highly recommend to anyone who would like a visit to these springs and...

This is a very well maintained older resort! We needed one night in the area to go on a manatee adventure while on our way to south Florida. This is the first time we traveled with our small dog so accommodations are harder to find. We booked with a last minute Hotwire rate and were pleasantly surprised. The property is...

We arrived at Plantation on Crystal River a couple of hours before the expected check in time, however the room was ready and we were able to get settled immediately. The front desk staff were welcoming and helpful. In fact all staff we came in contact with on the property including the restaurant and grounds people were friendly. Our room...

Stayed here with my mom for one night prior to swimming with the manatees. The property was decorated very nicely for the holidays. Check-in was a breeze. We stayed in the Rose section of the hotel, which was nice, new and clean. Beds were very comfortable and allowed us a good night's rest before our big adventure. We dined in...

Nice place with great view, but I was confused! I never mentioned bringing a pet and was told by the front desk clerk no pets allowed! Yet two Golden Retrievers, a Pug, and a Lap Dog in the Hall way going into rooms! Noisy guests with kids on our floor slamming Doors! Advise them to invest in door shock absorb...

While it is definitely a little past it's prime, we found this place very comfortable and elegant. The service was great. The bar is first class, better than your typical hotel/convention center bar. Same goes for the restaurant. The room was large and comfortable, and so was the bathroom. Our main complaint was that the heat wouldn't turn on, only...

Snorkeling with the manatees could not have been easier. Great crew and location to water. Rooms were spacious and the furniture/furnishings were just fine. Room 216 had carpet that smelled so bad, like it had been wet for a month, I went to get Febreze and sprayed it everywhere. Each day the smell came back. Absolutely needs new carpet in...

Nicest hotel in Crystal River. Fantastic location on canals just off the main springs, but in view and very close to the main river. Saw manatees in canal next to hotel in the morning. Grounds maintained very well. Good hotel bar, nice tiki bar outside and pool with great water views. Ask for a room on the water side. Golf...

The main lobby/restaurant/bar are absolutely breathtaking. The room itself was nice, and clean. We were able to secure the room for a very reasonable rate. I would recommend this hotel for the price paid.
