This one is a safe haven from the super-slab. When the tedium of I-75 has finally worn you down, the recently renovated Courtyard will provide Marriott's high standard in a comfortable setting. The new Bistro look entrance provides ample seating for the light fair offered. If you are looking for a richer dining experience the crossing hwy, SR200 offers every... More

Arrival and check-in were smooth. Room was nice, and the beds were comfortable and luxurious. We had requested a wheelchair-accessible shower with our room. and was pleased with it. However, the air-conditioning was not working and a quick call to the front desk had a maintenance man at our door within moments. He did some things, reset it, and told... More

Living up to Marriott expectations, my rooms was very clean, roomy, and exactly what is was pictured to be. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking was excellent, as was the pool area. This is my second time staying here; I will be back!

I travel to Ocala twice a year to visit my in-laws: June and December. Over the last 12 years, I've stayed at a variety of places and the Courtyard has become the proclaimed winner! With their beautiful lobby re-model, easy access to I-75 and SR-200, and walking distance to several restaraunts - this location has become my "Ocala Home". The... More

Our stay at this hotel was about what I expected; the entire Courtyard chain needs a facelift. The lobby has been updated recently with nice tables/chairs, a food bar and many other amenities such as flat panel TVs, etc. However, once you leave the lobby you suddenly realize that you're back in a dated Courtyard hotel, for some reason the...

First the good--service of staff and attitude were great. Rooms need work. My broom had black mold growing around the window. Old fashioned individual air con was noisy. Sheets were low quality. Rooms are not soundproof, woke to a crying baby in room next door at 3 am.

I was taking my grandson from Hilton Head to Fort Myers to see a Spring Training baseball game and this Courtyard didn't disappoint. Just as nice as other Courtyards, this one has clean rooms, friendly staff (including the housekeepers who gave us a tooth brush and paste since my grandson forgot his). The lobby is a great place to relax... More

We came back to the Courtyard because my husband prefers the healthier options on the breakfast menu over the included breakfast at the nearby Residence Inn. The Courtyard is an older property, but the staff is friendly enough and they have managed to not let the property get dated and run down. My pet peeve now is that the sink... More

Dear Island-gal-in-NJ Thank you for your review of our hotel. I concur with your comment about the sink outside of the bathroom.
