The hotel has a motel feel, rooms are nothing special, but the restaurant was great (really nice service), the hotel staff are super nice, and the view from the restaurant area onto the river is gorgeous. We absolutely loved our riverboat tour with Captain Gerry - we chose not to swim with manatees (thought we'd let them be), but saw...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for two nights and would have liked to stay longer. Our suite (110) offered a full kitchen, was very clean, comfortable and the balcony offered a wonderful view of the river. Dinner at the Crab House which is on the property was terrific and if you are lucky you will...

The accommodations were very nice. The suite with kitchen and bedroom was clean and in good repair (not perfect, but good). This time of year is great. The resort is not busy. We rented a boat and saw many manatees since they travel up the river this time of year. The Bait and Tackle staff were very friendly.

If you're going to stay at the Riverside Resort you'll definitely need more than a day to fit in everything there is to do. I was able to take my first air boat ride while staying there and needless to say the river and wildlife are truly amazing. The marina offers river tours, dinner cruises and manatee swims, which I'll...

We stayed this past weekend at the Riverside. The Hotel is very friendly and clean. The location is great and in the middle of everything Homosassa. The area is pretty quaint with good food and good entertainment and good prices. I would highly recommend this place for a get-a-way.

On Wednesdays they have a steak special. Cooked outdoors on grills. Vey good and very reasonable. We spend our winters in Homosassa. Can't wait to get back down to so we can go there. Their upstairs bar/dining room has a great view of the river and monkey island.

It was our first time there. We had a second floor suite. The view over the river was awesome. The rooms were clean, the restaurant had good food, the bar had great drinks, and the monkeys were entertaining. It was a perfect old Florida escape. We had our boat with us and had a dock we could see from our...

Bing and I have been coming to Riverside Resort for a few years now and decided it would be the perfect location for my 50th birthday bash --- close enough to home (Orlando) that friends and family could come over, plenty of clean, spacious rooms, the river, the restaurant, the pool ... old Florida! It was PERFECT. We had about...

This hotel was amazing!!! I accidently booked the wrong night for our stay during scallop season and the hotel was completely booked. But the staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure they found us a room. They upgraded to one of their suites that had a no show. Room was very clean and view was awesome....
