Checked in and checked out 30 mins later! Filthy and unsafe! Dirty Walls, dirty curtains, and peep holes busted out. The stairwells had food spilled down them. It appears people live at this hotel but it's not a live-in hotel. Did not feel clean or safe.

Poor service, staff was horrible, hotel was dirty. The staff was very rude and did not accommodate my basic request on time. I asked for towels and never got them. The room was dirty when I checked in. Every time I called the front desk they were very rude.

I go to Florida every year with my family, this is the first time I have cried. We pulled into what looked like a run down hotel. We turned in the wrong way and got to see the back of the hotel which was half boarded up and there was trash everywhere. I check into my "Executive Double suite" only... More

I recently spent a week at the Golden Palms while in Ocala on business. From the time I checked in, until the time I checked out, everyone was so friendly and helpful. The lady that runs the Hotel is just a real sweetheart and you can tell she deeply cares about the guests. The Hotel is nicely located right off... More

I was forced to stay in this hotel because all other hotels were booked, but hey they advertised as a Luxury hotel without the high price. What I got was a high end Motel 6 from the 80s. Just horrible. Asked to be refunded after 5 minutes and they said computers would not allow such. Hair on toilet, holes in... More

I selected this hotel based on the web site, but it was nothing like what was on its site. When I arrived, I saw the same room pictures behind the registration desk and was told that they were "select rooms", not the general room - no kidding! The hotel staff was pleasant but that's where it ended. The hotel is... More
