“Great hotel straight off the highway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This is by far one of the best I've encountered on our road trip! The hotel is straight off the highway so it's easy to get on and off. The area looks a little shady, but it's a great hotel! The staff is so friendly and they definitely accommodate for people with pets! They have a nice green space to walk the dogs and it's bordered by restaurants so it's easy to find food. All in all, great hotel!:)

Some hotels/motels along interstate 75 are starting to seem rundown and dated, but we were pleasantly surprised with all aspects of this Sleep Inn. The room was very clean and well appointed in modern decor. The air conditioner was working well, bathroom was clean and modern, lobby was nice and front desk staff were helpful and friendly. I really appreciate having a fridge in the room to keep water and other drinks cool. We were close enough to walk to Sonny's for some good BBQ next door. Our room was on the interstate side of the hotel, but I did not hear any noise from it at all. The location was perfect for us as a stop over from Naples to Atlanta. I would be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: I think any of them would be fine, noise did not seem to be an issue.

Being that there is very little in this area I was surprised to find a clean, affordable room and friendly, helpful staff who gave great directions & reminded me that I get a discount w/ AAA. Free breakfast of eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, muffins, etc. was decent & went until 10am which was a big bonus for me. I checked in around 11pm & I was offered a noon check out. Wi-Fi was not the greatest, I couldn't get a strong signal at first but eventually did connect. Water pressure in the shower was great & the a/c rocked. I would definitely stay here again.

One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. Extremely comfortable beds and quiet rooms that aren't paper thin so you don't hear everything that goes on the the rooms around you. Very nice employees and a warm breakfast in the morning that actually tastes good.

Stayed for one night. Very nice room. Had two chairs in it so you didn't have to sit on the bed all the time. Had a lot of space in the room. Would stay here again. Staff was very friendly. Can't comment on the continental breakfast because we didn't eat there.

The hotel we usually stay at when we're in Ocala had no vacancies so we had to find another and I remember reading good reviews about this one. I'm happy to say that those reviews were right. This hotel was great! Comfortable beds, clean, quiet, nice complimentary breakfast in the morning, pleasant, helpful staff and the rate was very good too. I would definately stay here again. Would I recommend to others? Yes!

Sleep Inns are supposed to be the "low end" of this chain but this one is better than some of the higher priced hotels we have stayed in. Front desk staff greeted us cheerfully and knew about our reservation. As a card member of this group we were recognized and given a little gift bag. Room was clean and equipped with a refrigerator plus coffee machine. Bathroom has large counter area and bars in the shower/tub area which really helps. We like firm beds. Our room could do with new mattresses. Breakfast was normal although my husband said biscuits for biscuits/gravy were hot and tasty. A BBQ chain is right next door with a sidewalk to walk over which is convenient.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet except the very end next to the expressway.
