I was pleasantly surprised when I saw our room. It was a little older but very clean and comfortable. Check in and out was smooth. I was concerned that our door and frame were not flush, you could see outside and I was afraid that bugs or something could crawl in. Had a standard room and will defiantly stay there...

This is the second year we returned to Homosassa Riverside Resort. The standard rooms are a little "tired" and could use some updating, but other than that, it was adaquate. The beds were comfortable and the refrigerator was very cold. The rooms were clean. The location is great because it is close to many activities. We rented a pontoon boat...

Spent one night in a one bedroom/one bath/kitchen/living room suite at 108$ tax incl. That's a good deal, I think, and it's even the rack rate. Only downside was lack of crib (first time we experience after travelling 2-3 months in Florida), and they tried blaming the government. Also, walls separating the suites where thin, so we could have taken...

Good location, Room needed maintenance, formica around sink chipped, tub and sink rusty and chipped. Very noisey, furniture moving in room above beginning at 7 am. We were disappointed in this "resort" We enjoyed Homosassa State Wildlife Park and kayaking with the awesome manatees..

First of all, we LOVE monkeys. A resort with monkeys? You've got to be kidding. Book us a room, now! There are a number of buildings in the Riverside Resort complex. Some have water views, and some do not. We stayed in Villa II, which overlooks the river, the pool, and had a clear view of Monkey Island. While we...

We had a girls night out and had a wonderful time at the resort. We were in the 1 bedroom 2 bath room and we had plenty of room for 5 girls. The room was right on the river and we were able to see a lot of wildlife from the porch. The weather was awful (rained all day and...

Had a girls weekend at Homosassa springs and the resort was perfect. The location was right on the water which was fabulous. Great view (especially of monkey island) and it had a restaurant, kayak rentals, boat rides, and manatee excursions on all the property. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The sunset cruise was nice and we saw many...

Discovered the Riverside Resort on our vacation to the area in Sept. 2013 after my husband went fishing with a guide associated with the resort. The location of this resort can't be beat! Decided we needed another get away to Homosassa and knew the Riverside Resort is where we wanted to stay! The manatee excursion is a must, this is...

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.
