We only had one night, but we really enjoyed our stay! The room was clean and comfy. There were no outside noise to be heard. And the food in the restaurant was delicious. We took the manatees tour that the hotel offers and it was an amazing experience.

We recently stayed two nights at the Plantation on Crystal River since we wanted to go diving for scallops. The hotel staff was very friendly and the place is "laid out on a silver platter" making it an easy place to negotiate. The scallop boat charter boat was literally outside our hotel window.

We primarily stayed here as they offered a excursion to swim with Manatees of the end of their dock.
