Bella Oasis Hotel

Reviewed 6 October 2013

The pictures of the place looked great. They showed a dog area, a tiki bar by the pool, and a beautiful exterior. When we got there, we found that all the images were accurate (except that the tiki bar was nowhere to be found), but entirely misleading. They must have been taken years ago when the hotel was first painted. The room was fine except that it smelled like someone had smoked in it and they'd tried to cover the scent with something fruity. The bathroom was another story. The toilet had recent stains on the inside, the tub had a mat that was dark grey around the edges, and the drain was completely missing any kind of cover or stopper or anything; it was just an open hole. The coffee pot was unwashed. Perhaps the most misleading part is that they call themselves a "hotel," which I have always thought to mean the doors open to the interior. Some quick googling confirmed that this is the general meaning. This is absolutely a motel. Minimal amenities and exterior entrances.

At least it was cheap and close to the manatees/state park, but I regret choosing it.

We were here for a Wedding.
We were greeted by friendly, courteous & helpful staff members from reservation to checkout. Our room was clean and ready when stated. They were even able to provide an early check in for us. Had a small issue with the WiFi access, but that was corrected very quickly.

If we travel back to Homosassa, FL, we will stay here again.

Thanks to the entire staff at Bella Oasis Hotel for a great stay.

Room Tip: Our room was pool side but farthest away from the pool. Nice and quiet. Pool could be open a littl...

stayed at the Oasis on a business trip from Tampa to Citrus County. comfortable room, but a little overpriced and checkin was a little clumsy. swimming pool was nice, but then some drunken redneck, started a racial fight in the bar, and the hotel staff did nothing. it was a convenient stay for me as I attended a local Rotary Club the next morning.probably will not stay at Oasis again.

We have stayed at the Bella Oasis several times. It's a lot busier and noisier during scalloping season. I always make sure to ask for a non smoking room because they accidentally booked us into a smoking one the last time we were here and the smell almost knocked me down. The hotel is older but we have never had an issue with cleanliness. The bed was very comfortable. The A/C works great and the shower pressure is awesome. They have a pool and a bar/restaurant, where I had a good dinner at a reasonable price. We try to always stay in Room 201 because it is quieter upstairs, the ceilings are super high and the room is an end unit. It overlooks the pool but the noise has never bothered us as we get back very late and no one is ever in it at that time. All in all, a good place to stay if you are just wanting a place to sleep whilst doing other things for most of the time.

Room Tip: We always try to stay in Room 201.

Great little motel to stay if you are going scalloping. Has an ok continental breakfast. Most people staying there had gone or were going scalloping so there was alot of conversation among guests. Nice yard where we set up a canopy and cooked our scallops. Pool was great to come back to. Will stay again next time we go scalloping.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the pool.

This non-smoking rat hole room that we recently stayed at because we booked it online and they would not refund our money,( I guess this is the only way they can get business ) should be closed down.

Please contact the Chamber of Commerce and file a complaint because I'm certain there will be many of them.
They can be reached at 352-795-3149 or e-mail Terry at Terry@citruscountychamberof commerce.com and request that they be dropped as a member.

Room Tip: bring RAID bug spray
