I stay at this hotel 2-3 times a year for 4-6 nights at the time...my room was clean, the restaurant hot breakfast was great (not continental) and the staff is always helpful and friendly. The beds are very comfortable and the towels are thick, not paper thin.

Room service is provided free but if you eat in the restaurant you get a small discount. Wait staff is... More

This motel is old but has been through a make-over and appears to be a Howard Johnson's of the fifties and sixties - the premier hotel of the times. The staff was eager to please and extremely professional. We have already scheduled another stay later this year m

I traveled to Florida in mid-April of 2015. I use a wheelchair, and so I booked a wheelchair accessible room at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Ocala, Florida. I booked a room with one king bed and an accessible tub. The room itself was clean, spacious, and comfortable. My companion and I did not need anything fancy, just a place... More

I will make sure that I suggest extra bars, which I could not agree with you more. This item will be attended to. 2) Extra blankets--somebody... More

They provided us with a rollaway bed for our fifth person. The room was clean and the staff was very courteous. The complimentary breakfast was good...make your own waffles,... More
