It has charm and great seroundings but some elements in the rooms show old age. The rooms are comfy and very clean and only the windows look like they are there from the 1960's. This hotel is one of the few right on the water in this part of Florida. Lovely pool area, great lawns, and the tour we made...

We stayed here over spring break this year and my family loved this place! The hotel has been renovated to mix old with new. We loved the old Florida feel of this resort, nice pool, pool bar and surrounding area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

We came here just for the main purpose of snorkeling with the manatees, but it is so much more. It's a place of natural beauty, like I imagine the Florida of 50+ years ago. After checking in, we went to wander around the property and immediately saw a dolphin in the river beside the lovely pool. The view of the...

Lovely colonial style hotel with great staff who are friendly and professional. A wonderful meal in the restaurant with great views over the water. Tiki Bar offers lovely cocktails served by friendly staff. The Manatee tour with Captain Ron and Captain Ed is something else. A real credit to his trade. An expert Manatee 'wrangler', diver, guide and with technology...

Loved the patio...but next time will request the rooms by the rental area as you are closer to the canal and can watch everything...

My sister and I (both in our 60s so this isn't just for younger people) went here specifically because we wanted to do their swim with manatees package. The hotel is very comfortable and seems to have been renovated in the last couple years. We love having free wi-fi and it was strong and reliable. The a/c worked well which...

Stayed here for a fishing trip. Really enjoyed the resort. Golfing, fishing, volleyball, outdoor activities. You can fish of the bulkhead- husband caught a huge snook! Visited the area parks too- if you like outdoors, this is a great place.

We were told by a friend that this place was awesome! Well we did not book directly and we should have. We love to sit outside but we did have a waterfront room but no deck, we tried to change our room but the were totally full so we learned a lesson. The Restaurant and Tiki bar by the pool...

This was a great place to stay. We wanted to relax and we did, They also have adventures to go on if you want. The pool is very big and the deepest is only 41/2 ft so kids are safe here. Lots to do or just relax and enjoy.
