The carpet in my room needed a shampoo. Other than that, the room was very comfortable, clean and bed linen appeared to be clean. I always enjoy my stay in this particular location for business travel.

This is a very nice hotel. Although it is not new, it is still elegant and is wells obtained and updated. Great staff, excellent service and the best hamburger (room service) I have ever had! Can't wait to go back!

Really disappointed that I even stayed here. The service all the way to the room isn't what Hilton stands for. Hope that this is a corporate location and not a franchise. Seems like with franchise owners they dont follow all the rules.

My stay here was wonderful. The staff was so friendly and the customer service is outstanding. I would definitely come back again. I left my laptop charger in the room and it is being mailed back to me.

The oddest thing about staying here is that the name Hilton is not on the building. Instead, there's a subtle bucolic scene with a slogan about hospitality in horse country, an obvious nod to the locale. But the lettering is very small. Due to my confusion and the subtle sign, I entered the wrong door, closer to the meeting rooms... More

we certainly have not experienced the lack of name recognition with our resort style setting Hilton. From the giant Hilton blue loco on two sides of the building, to the sign entering the gorgeous entrance drive people have come to know the "big pink Hilton" landmark. we will take a closer look at the door signs and see if there...

First, we got an excellent deal on Hot Wire, and was excited when it revealed a stay at the Hilton; however, the room was so-so. No outlet on the desk area only by TV or the nightstand. The bed comfort was so-so. The air conditioner was hardly working - it felt like a sauna during then night even though we... More

we are never happy when it appears that our Hilton Ocala team delivered anything but a great experience. We have already taken specific steps to ensure that this room was detailed to perfection and there will be no chance of that experience again. Thank you for your candid comments and giving our team the opportunity to improve. More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Ocala Hilton over a hundred times over the last two decades. This property still looks brand new.

Wow...you covered a great deal of "what's great in Ocala" for us! The front desk crew really appreciates the wonderful comments and you sure did get some of our superstars right! the new hot breakfast buffet, evening appetizers, and 8pm complimentary warm cookies on our VIP level floors is worth the small upgrade cost. Please come back and visit soon More

We had a wonderful stay at the Hilton Ocala! We had a block of rooms and a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner, that was Fabulous. Everything from the rooms to the food and the staff was Amazing. I highly recommend Hilton Ocala for an Event to just a Hotel Getaway! Thanks Stacey

We have passed along your wonderful comments to Stacey and the rest of the team.... We really appreciate the time you took to give credit where it is due, and the entire banquet and culinary team is sometimes less appreciated in words than others....

The grounds were beautiful. I stayed there because of the freeway, but it was a pleasant surprise. It was like an oasis. The rooms were excellent, and they were so accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.
