“Clean room not much else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Got here took the upgrade which ment a flat screen tv. Pool was full of dirt. They had a tiki bar that hasn't been used in years. Breakfast was stale donuts or English muffins. Staff was pleasent but for $99 plus tax we could have stayed at the Hampton inn. If they put some time into maintaing they property it could be as they advertise.

We were passing through Ocala headed to South FL from Tallahassee after a late start and decided to crash. Somehow every hotel in the city was booked solid. Hampton Inn folks recommended this hotel. Because of their availability and our previous experiences with hotels we totally expected it to be a dump. We were very surprised to find that this is a great hotel. Our room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and an excellent shower with great pressure. I found the staff to be extremely courteous and helpful and the rates were very reasonable. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Very Nice Room, Great Service. The Place to stay if in Ocala. 45.99 a night didn't hurt either. Clean and Comfortable. Any time I come back to Ocala I will stay here. May upgrade to the Jacuzzi suite next.

This hotel is wonderful ! I was given a cozy, quiet room, with a fireplace and flat screen TV both on/in the wall. The decor was charming and the bed was comfortable and clean. They even served real cream and real butter at the continental breakfast, which I always appreciate when travelling. The staff was friendly and helpful. I felt well taken care of. I would definitely stay here again.

I have never been to a hotel like this or i call it a crap hole . I had got bored late at night and walked around and i had walk to the back and saw a dead rat and smelled a moldy smell. And when i went up front in the morning to check out i had said something about the dead rat. The front desk said we never had a problem with rats. Then i walk to my room to get my stuff and i saw one of the employ's walking out of one of the rooms with two dead rats. The mold that is a sign of water damage which can be black mold. never stay, the worst ever i think worst then hell.

Room Tip: never stay

The photos someone took are dead on. I booked through hotels.com and booking through that company was a huge mistake in iteslf. I cannot even believe this place is not condemned. I booked for 2 nights and refused to even stay there for one night. Lost about 200 dollars to hotels.com when the hotel's price was actually 75 dollars cheaper. How bad is the place? There are open rooms where there is junk, old furniture, and clothing just stacked up like the show "Horders". My "room" had stained sheets, stained carpeting, and a few bugs running around. The shower was disgusting and in need of desperate repair. In addition, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT OF NOTICE GIVEN. Anyone who has written a nice review is either a relative or the proprietor. I cannot imagine even a poor refugee taking up shelter here!! I packed it up and hit I-75 to the La Quinta about 5 miles away. Very pleased with that hotel and cheaper, too!

Room Tip: "Nothing"--just stay as far away from this hotel as possible!!
