We stayed in the Hilton Ocala while attending a close family members funeral nearby. The staff were extraordinarily kind, helpful in meeting odd requests and meeting the needs of our family staying in different parts of the hotel. The room was immaculate and we enjoyed the pool and office support. The Sunday brunch was very satisfying and wait staff well... More

Hilton Ocala is a great place to stay! The location is ideal for a city visit or a night stay off the interstate roads. Our family loves it! My parents from the Tampa Bay Area stay during hurricane season if they need to evacuate. They would bring their dog too because pets are welcome and they love that the hotel... More

The main hallways and tables in the main area were filthy, the pool had cigarette butts and pieces of broken tile at the bottom. Our room had an odor and the refrigerator did not work. All you heard all night was slamming doors.

We stayed here for one night on 7/23 while passing through on our way to south Florida. We ended up having to make reservations about 30 minutes prior to check in- no problems! The room was ready for us upon arrival and the woman working at the front desk (I cannot remember her name) was so nice and helpful. It... More

I had to be in Ocala for an early Sunday Morning Meeting. So I searched and found a great "getaway deal" at the Ocala Hilton - for $118.00 total (with taxes) I got a suite on the executive level with a reception from 5-7 with great prices on beverages and hot appetizers. Hot, freshly baked cookies at 8pm. A great... More

Thanks for the over-the-top comments. Our VIP level floors (2 floors) are the highlight of most guests who choose that amenity. We are so glad you enjoyed the comfort of both your accommodations and the warmth of the 9th floor VIP lounge More

What a lovely place to stay! My friend and I stayed here the night before we picked up our sons from Ocala Adventure Camp. I had no idea how beautiful the grounds would be, and the service was superb! Especially, Maxi on the 9th Floor!! She was friendly and did an amazing job taking care of all of us!

Time and time again we hear how pleasently surprised people are once they arrive at Hilton Ocala. While the oak-covered winding driveway is impressive, it's the 6-acre "back yard" that blows people away....and coming later this week is the installation of our Par Course style fitness trail...complete with 6 unique exercise stations to compliment the PreCor fitness room on property....
