Given my choice I will always stay at a Marriott. Granted, just because it is a Marriott doesn't guarantee an above average stay. I have had my share of older properties that could use a facelift. But as a loyal Marriott Rewards Member they always do their best to accommodate. The Residence Inn in Ocala is no different. I was... More

We usually stay in Gainsville residence inn. Gainsville hotel is dirty and noisey. We decided to change to the one in Ocala on our way back from vacation. This one was newly renovated and very clean. The pool and spa were very nice. There was an outdoor sitting area where we sat and relaxed. Our room was spotless and very... More

I've stayed at Residence Inns about 3 or 4 times before my most recent trip. I've always been very pleased with the accommodations. This 1 bedroom suite, however, was about half the size I expected. My mother, my daughter and I stayed for 2 nights in April of 2015 while on a business trip. Mom was a last minute addition... More

Dear Apolostic Lady: Thank you for staying at the Residence Inn by Marriott. I researched your reservation and you had reserved a Studio Suite which has the living room, kitchen and bedroom combined. As a Rewards member I had upgraded you to a One Bedroom Suite. Possibly you had looked at several properties as we do not offer Doubles as... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight on a trip to Orlando. This was our first experience at a Residence Inn and we were very pleased and impressed. The check in was a breeze and the receptionist was professional and friendly. The room was clean, well stocked and welcoming. Much larger than your normal hotel room. The very was very... More

I travel all over the country on business and was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem! Patty and Kevin were amazing. They have a cute little reception Tuesday through Thursday which makes guests feel at home. I would stay here anytime.

This hotel has been renovated since our last visit. The 1 bedroom suite has a nice layout and a new sectional in the living room. The king bed was very comfortable. Our room was at the top of the stairs yet it was quiet and even though you are close to the interstate you didn't hear the traffic. My only... More

My sister and I were looking for a safe place to stay while attending a function up the road in Gainesville (30 min by interstate.) So glad I chose the Residence Inn - easy on and off the interstate in a very good area for food and surrounded by other hotels. Checkin was easy and our room was ready. We... More

We were greeted in a very friendly manner. We arrived during an international horse show so the room availability was tight. We did not feel like we were at their Mersey. Very clean, friendly employees, wonderful breakfast, fireplace in the room, quiet room.

Much better than the Courtyard. Fully updated, nice rooms and great lobby with a small bar. Downside. Sooooo many dogs! I am a fan of hotels allowing certain pets, but this hotel had some big and loud, and smaller and louder dogs all over the place. My hope is that they would limit the rooms with pets allowed and have... More
