I really didn't care for this place. I didn't feel especially safe, and the room was more like one at your great aunts house than a hotel. I guess I'm not the "boutique" hotel type. There were no accessible outlets to plug in electronics. I understand that the owner is trying to run a business, but thought she could have... More

Cozy motel with nice unique and very clean rooms. The owner is very nice and they even had coffee and some snacks for breakfast. It feels like staying at grandmas house, the interior is quirky and special. Even the parking lot has lots of flowers cozy seats and rocking chairs! Definitely a nice place to stay on a road trip.

Lots of plants outside and eclectic decor in the rooms. Owner and manager were very helpful. We were just passing through on our way to St Petersburg but I think Ocala is an interesting town which could be fun to explore. This older motel is in process of remodeling, and it's cute and quirky...and more reasonably priced than the better... More

We stayed for one night on the end of a week long trip in Florida. It honestly made me nervous when we first pulled up but the owner was very nice. Plus the police department is literally just across the street. Our room was clean and neatly made. She even brought over some snacks and drinks for us. She had... More

Too the scenic route for vacation to FL and found this little gem on the way back. It was perfect for my sister and I. I have an affinity for "motor courts" that bring back great memories of my childhood. I love the shabby chic decor and the inviting seating outside of each room. Sadie makes a cute addition as...

Nice motel with clean rooms. Not for the hardcore male. But if you want to take your more female partner somewhere to stay, this is it. And management will do all they can to please you during the stay. Short distance to dining and bars.

It was due to a very unfortunate car accident that my son & his fiancee were in that brought me to the Shamrock.. After staying at a different hotel (one without a weekly rate) the week previous & due to the extensive injuries they received it was Necessary for me to find & move to a more cost effective place...

Our 2 night stay at Shamrock was very different from expected. "Vintage" does not have to mean no electrical outlets in the bathroom, poor lighting, a portable space heater for warmth, no coffee and breakfast available on the morning we were leaving, over priced and cash requested for payment. We were told this was a "king suite," but the room... More
