My teenage boys and I stayed at the Ocala Hilton in June 30 - July 1st during a college visit road show and very much enjoyed the hospitality and service at the hotel.

Every staff member was accommodating, friendly & provided great customer service during our stay. Samantha who worked the Front Desk, was especially outstanding!!! She was extremely welcoming from the first step we took into the lobby and every request was granted with a smile :) Samantha is a great asset to the Hilton Family!!!

I have stayed here many time on business and always am happy with the hotel and service. One thing I really love is the horse, Buddy, a retired Budweiser Clydesdale. I always ,make a point to go visit with him. Also - the staff is fantastic. Shannon (Lobby restaurant), Samantha (Front Desk) and Sergio in the office. I have interacted... More

Everyone at this Hotel were exceptional, but Shannon at the bar went above and beyond on Monday night. I was really hungry, and the only thing that seemed appetizing at the time came off the lunch menu, the shrimp risotto. I asked her if I could order from the lunch menu, she asked what I wanted and then said "I... More

When it comes to the top reason anybody returns to a business, it is because the people make you feel comfortable and "like family." Shannon certainly does that, and it is reflected time after time by our guests. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return More

Two for One at happy hour daily is certainly a fun aspect of the Starting Gate Bar & Grill....not to mention the awesome food that can go along with it. Shannon is always all smiles and one of the best bartenders in Ocala. On behalf of Shannon and the rest of the team, we look forward to your return More

I have stayed here in Ocala several times in the last 3 months. Each time the bartenders at the starting gate lounge have been excellent as was the other staff.

On our way to the Florida Gulf Beaches we stopped overnight here. A very warm welcome from Karin who checked us in promptly - fair to say the hotel is maybe looking a little tired - the room was clean and the bed super comfortable. The pool area really nice- just what you needed after a long drive we are... More

Your notice of Karin is appreciated and put a smile on her face. Then again, there is always a smile on Karin's face and that what makes her such a joy to have on our staff.

I want to mention Karin, Samantha, and Maxi. They went out of there way to make sure our stay great. They did a great job. The rooms were great and clean. The food was better than the mexican place next door. All and all great experience.

The front desk dynamic duo of Karen and Samantha are the best...thanks for mentioning them by name. While El Toro next door is a wonderful treat to the border, the culinary experience at Arthur's Bistro and the Starting Gate Bar & Grill is the best in North Central Florida. Glad you enjoyed your stay More

A big thanks for mentioning Deborah in your nice comments. It means a lot to each employee...and yes, she is wonderful. Deborah, Shannon, Jason, Brian and the rest of the Starting Gate Bar & Grill serve up the best selection of craft beers, vodkas (and some amazing martinis), and bourbons in the area....and it's even more fun at our daily...
