We go to Ocala once a month for recreation sports and we have stayed at many hotels. After finding the courtyard we no longer try other hotels. Rooms are clean, AC is great and the staff are super friendly. It is directly across from the Cracker Barrel which we love for breakfast. Overall a great hotel every time.

I have had a long week. I have been jumping from hotel to hotel for work reasons and I landed here last night after a long day for my family. I requested a few extra things I needed to accommodate the needs of my kids and my husband (who has been battling a bad cold all week), and everything I... More

We have stayed here about four times in the past. It's a good stoping off point (exit 350 off Rt 75) when traveling between Atanta and Naples. There are several restuarants and gas stations close by. This Courtyard is older but kept in very good condition. The room was on the first floor and yet very quiet.

Great location as far as proximity to I75 and very nice lobby. They serve dinners and breakfasts at reasonable rates. However, it is a 15 minute drive east to get to "downtown" and the good restaurants and Square. Rooms clean and we couldn't hear any hallway noise.

This was my first visit to this hotel but I will definitely stay here if I'm in the area again. Daniel made check-in a breeze and easily switched me to the exact room I wanted. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept on (just like several other Courtyards I've experienced). The property was very quiet and peaceful and seemed... More

I stayed 4 nights and was not impressed. The staff and main lobby area including the Bistro were nice, but the room was sorely in need of an overhaul. The mold along the interface between the tub and tile was still visible through the replacement caulk. The windows did not keep out the noise from the parking lot. The outlet... More

I came to Ocala on business for a night. It's a lovely part of Florida that feels like Texas. Rollins hills, large trees, green plains and horses! This Courtyard got a lovely update recently and the rooms are great. The location is central and you can walk to several dining options. I booked at suite and the first option bordered... More

We spent only one evening here and had a great time. Love the kiosk/alcove where we bought water, snacks, and other sundries. The place was very clean (must be a new facility), the bar seemed very welcoming, and there was a cafe in the lobby. The room was very clean and large enough. I would definitely return.

This Courtyard is the usual Marriott quality which is why we choose Marriott many times when we travel. It is off a major highway, 75, and there several restaurants and businesses nearby, many within walking distance. And it is just a short drive from the hotel to many other local store and restaurants.
