We stayed the weekend at Hilton Ocala while my husband participated in a race a few exits north at a local track. The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hilton. It's what you would expect from the brand. Clean common areas, friendly staff, comfortable accommodations. We had no issues or complaints. I liked that the property was... More

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night (on a stop on our way to the mountains) about 3 years ago. This past month, we vacationed in the mountains, and decided to stop at the Hilton Ocala once again (to break up that long drive). So glad we did. It was a great way to get our vacation... More

Now that's the way to relax at Hilton Ocala. Put your feet up, and order an amazing Arthur's Bistro meal with room service! Being one of the only full-service hotels in the area with a full, Amercian Fusion menu means there is something for everyone - for breakfast, lunch, or dinner- on the menu. We have passed your comment regarding... More

Ocala Hilton steady and comfortable. Quiet in normal situations. Bar could use additional staff, especially in the early pm, but the late bartender is very sharp and alert to clients' needs. Hotel dining room is a star with a good wine selection for a limited area, possessing a better than average chef and good selection of entrées.

One of our biggest "not so secret" secrets is the culinary team at Hilton Ocala. Arthur's Bistro has one of the most unique "American Fusion" dinner menus you can find, as well as a very well sought out wine selection. Since you can choose the casual dining of Arthur's, the Starting Gate Bar & Grill, or even outdoor patio dining... More

It appears that this hotel has not been updated in decades. Our bathroom vent did not work; the floor tile was stained; and the faucet was operable yet broken. The executive lounge was disappointing as well. Besides being extremely outdated, the furniture was stained. I am surprised that Hilton lends its name to the hotel.

When we fail to fully deliver our promise of exceptional service and accommodations in the eyes of any guest it makes us strive even harder for perfection. Though we have completely redone our rooms in 2008, and the entire restaurant, guest elevators, meeting space, and other lobby areas just in 2013, we are continuously upgrading and improving our facility.

I stayed at the Hilton in Ocala on a busy Saturday evening when the hotel was full. My room was near as a pin ,the bed was very comfortable and the hotel in general was neat and well prepared. I also had a drink at the bar in the lobby where the bartender was very friendly and kind. The price... More

Hilton Ocala is set in a cute area surrounded by horse stables and acres of land. Convenient to the freeway and about 45 minutes from Orlando's MCO airport. However, the hotel is dated and lacking in areas of cleanliness and maintenance. Our room had dirty carpet, dirty bathroom tub and ceiling vent and a slight odor. The A/C wasn't working... More

The Hotel was clean and conviently located - I thought it was pricey for the area and quality of the property. Watch for the sign from the main road - I passed by twice before I noticed it - the property is down a side street.

Thank you for visiting Hilton Ocala during the very busy March equine season. Our extremely large sign on SR200 (College Road) just a block from the interstate leads you to our gorgeous, landscaped winding oak-lined drive that ends at the front door of Hilton Ocala. From there you can enjoy our pristine multi-acre property including our 6-acre grass rear paddock,... More

This hotel was recommended for the business conference I attended... I brought my family thinking they could hang out by the pool, relax and enjoy the hotel's amenities while I worked. That did not happen.The bathroom had leftover hair in the tub and on the walls. The room smelled and the pool was dirty. Definitely disappointing. Will not stay again.

smoke contaminated room no microwave, heat/air condition not controllable television cc not working well I do not feel I would recommend this hotel almost all service employees provided good service, I did like the closeness of the hotel to Bob Evans restaurant one of my favorites. The desk staff was very helpful about I-75 directions south to Orlando.

We stayed in this Hilton last night. We were immediately struck by a moldy smell when we entered our room. I assumed it was the carpet as it was stained badly and looked very dirty. After about 10 minutes we were getting stuffy noses and feeling the effects. When we opened the curtains to let more light in the room,... More

We are very happy that your move to a new room resulted in a great stay. As you know, the Florida weather of rain, hot, followed by cold can quickly turn the most pristine hotel room into a condensation problem. As much as we take a great deal of pride in attention to every detail, we apologize this one got... More
