We stayed two nights and booked through Trip Advisor on the strength of other reviews, we were not offered a choice of rooms. The hotel is in a great location and is a great base for exploring what Crystal River has to offer. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great king sized bed. The room decor was a...

I chose the Plantation because of the location (water and greenery, better ambience outside for our almost 2 year old son) and it was a little cheaper (via an agency who could access a tour-operator block) than the newer "branded" hotels in Crystal River. It was a good choice as a base for local sightseeing and visiting family locally (who...

Stayed two nights. Check in was easy and we were given a water view room as requested but oddly it was a handicap room so the bathroom was quite the oddity. Very institutional feel to it with white tile floor and walls, no vanity just a sink on the wall with an old faucet that had mildew on it. The...

We have stayed here several times over the past 20 yrs. and we are not golfers....The ambiance, the river, the bar, the fine restaurant are all worth a visit. They are now having a renovation on the side where the spa is, so ask for the other side if you are coming soon. The spa does massage, nails, facials, and...

We spent two nights at the Plantation and were really impressed. Our room was huge and very clean (although it could probably stand a little bit of updating). The staff were friendly, there is lots of parking and the hotel is close to all of the local attractions. We ate dinner in the restaurant on our first night and it...

Beautiful location, we had room on 2nd floor, overlooking river, with comfy beds and very clean. It had a connecting door which meant we could hear next door and no doubt them us. We ate in the bar and the food was very good, although we struggled to get a table it was very busy. The area is lovely with...

We had a great experience at the Plantation on Crystal River. We stayed in the Azalea wing and our room was nice sized and clean. We ate at dinner in the bar area of the restaurant and everything was very good!

The breakfast is not include and the one in the hotel is a little bit expensive. But everything else is really great ! If you are lucky you can see manatees in the canal along the hotel. The spa outside is a little bit small.
