“A great place to stop on the way to Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Just off I-75, here is an older hotel which has been brought up to date in the best of all ways. Like most Hampton's it has the staff, beds, service and breakfasts which you come to expect.

The only problem might be the access to good restaurants. The only restaurant close by which is good is the Sonny's BBQ. It is great food, but a limited bar. Only beer is served.

Room Tip: Eat at Sonney's or drive ten miles back north ot Ocala at exit 350 to have lots of opportunities...

Dear Ohiomitch,

Thank you for your recent review of our hotel on Trip Advisor. We greatly appreciate your kind feedback, and it will definitely be shared with our team members. The hotel is right off I-75 at exit 341. We do have a few restaurants nearby as you mention one is Sonny's BBQ, Cracker Barrel, 484 Pizza, and a Mexican Restaurant. We would definitely be able to provide directions to other restaurants in the near by area. Thank you for the kind words about our hotel, and our staff. We hope that when you are back in town, that you will allow us the opportunity to serve you again.

At YOUR Service,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Just an over night stay on our way to Florida in early January 2013. It was a late in the day stop and surprisingly there were no rooms available of our requested type. But front desk had one that was available from the repair list as the cable was acting up and only basic TV was available. A discount was offered, and accepted, but it was not a concern for us and we would have taken the room as is.

The room was clean, modern, and spacious with the usual amenities. The included breakfast was more than adequate considering the day of driving ahead.

BUT, Hampton Inn HQ, you have to do something about the tendency of the doors to slam shut with a loud metal on metal clang when the lock engages as inconsiderate persons let the door closer shut the door. Recognizing that Hampton Inn can not govern their customers, so please, consider modifying the closer or the lock mechanism to eliminate this annoying tendency. (This appears to be the norm in Hampton Inns and not to just this one location.)

We stopped there the week before Christmas on our way to our condo in the Fort Myers area. Easily accessible off I-75, yet it was very quiet. That left us only a 3 1/2 hour drive to our destination. We booked a Studio suite for the extra space. It was huge. The hotel is extremely well maintained and clean. The breakfast offering was very generous with lots of variety. In typical Hampton fashion, the breakfast room was spacious with the seating area somewhat removed from from the food counters so people didn't need to trip over each other to move around. Definitely our hotel of choice in Central Florida.

Dear Fussyfern,

I would like to take a moment to thank you for your recent review of our hotel on Trip Advisor. The feedback that we are given from our customers is most valuable. This allows us to become a better hotel for our next guest and your next stay. We are pleased that you found our hotel easy to access off I-75. That is absolutely correct we are right off the highway, and their is multiple fueling stations near us to refuel and to get back on the I-75 going both directions. I'm glad to hear that you had the opportunity to eat at our Hot Complimentary Breakfast that is served daily from 6am to 10am. Our Studio Suites do offer a microwave, mini refrigerator, pull out sofa bed, a wet bar area, along with a lot of additional space. We are glad that we could exceed your expectations, and look forward to your next stay with us.

I can always count on Hampton Inn & Suites to provide a comfortable room at a reasonable price but this Hampton was above average. Very friendly and helpfull staff and breakfast was on par with the other Hamptons I have stayed at. The room was large and the furnishings were above average.

We checked in to this hotel last year and the room was great. The property seems to be pretty recent and breakfast was good too. I would definitely recommend. It was a little pricey though. We had a good sleep. We were driving from Miami to Austin and made a stopover here.

This location was in my experience a typical Hampton Inn. It was very clean, the front desk staff was helpful and courteous. Our breakfast this morning was ok...scrambled eggs and sausage patties, a little heavy on the grease. There was no selection of muffins other than banana nut and the bananas were a little to ripe. The bed was to soft for my liking, but the room was very clean and quiet....thus sleeping was no problem.The computers in the business room were to slow....it seemed like they were on dial up service. The pool is in the parking lot surrounded by parked cars....not real attractive, but I am sure kids would love it not matter what. The only thing that would have made a difference in this stay is having a refrigerator and microwave in the room....I have almost come to expect that in a Hampton Inn, so that was the only real disappointment.

Well managed and maintained facility. Clean and up to date. Large room with comfortable bed. Lacks a micro and fridge which would have been nice if we had planned a longer stay. Nice selection on the included breakfast. Friendly staff. Would recommend for a stay. Would stay there again if in the area.
