“Can't beat it for $109 per night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is a very nice hotel - not your typical roadside chain type. Right off I-75 & 200. Rooms were clean. Beds were great. Friendly staff & a very good restaurant - Sky - inside the hotel. Would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Ocala.

We were on our way to the beach and couldn't find anything right on I-75 for about an hour and a half. Assumed this was not a good place. Boy were we wrong. Very comfortable beds. Very reasonably priced. Easy access to interstate. Great, unusual decor. Seemed very clean. Don't hesitate if you have questions of concerns.

This is definitely not your run of the mill Holiday Inn as the service and décor are far and away above typical Holiday Inn standards.

I had communicated with the hotel before my arrival with a couple of questions and the manager replied almost immediately which is a very positive sine. Check in was very friendly with and upgrade due to my Priority Club Platinum status as well as some other vouchers for the restaurant. The room was well decorated and liked the color scheme a lot and while I had trouble with the original internet code the front desk got it fixed quickly for me. I did have dinner at the Chinese restaurant and while the food was ok the service at the bar was pretty lack luster as the employees seemed more intent on chit chat rather than working. I also had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and it was priced well, good quality and service was great. The only negative is that I found the lobby/atrium area too dark but that is just a by product of the Asian theme they have going on.

All in all I would definitely stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed here. I love the lobby decor and the atmosphere as soon as you walk in. A modern play on the local Floridian landscape. Very creatively done. Rooms are clean. Staff is friendly. There was only a large stand up shower and no bathtub in our room so consider that if you have young children like we do. 16 month olds don't love showers....

This hotel looks like your average hotel building on the outside for a Holiday Inn property. But once you pass the front desk an entire large atrium lobby comes to life with glass elevators, pond, eclectic lighting, and plants. The rooms are very nice and clean. The bathrooms have granite counter tops with a large bath/shower combo and a tile floor. The room has a large flat screen TV with beds that have memory foam mattresses! All in all it was a very comfortable stay. Only draw back was I did not notice any complimentary breakfast option available. I believe you had to go to the restaurant in the hotel and pay for breakfast if you wanted it.

Room Tip: Higher floor room probably is better than a lower floor room for less humidity but they all might be...

HI, I stay here several times a year for business. It is well kept and good staff. The rooms are well maintained. The only problem on this trip was the Asian restaurant was closed on Mondays. The breakfast in the restaurant is just so-so which leads me to other locations.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Fort Lauderdale for a summer cruise. The hotel is in a nice area with lots of restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised by the lobby decor. Asian accents with beautiful lounges. Very welcoming. The room was very clean. Beds are memory foam and extremely comfortable. Although they have a small pool in the back it was fabulous for my 7 year old son after a long day in the car. For breakfast we ate at the hotel restaurant which is ala carte. The food was average and the furniture could use a little love but otherwise the staff was friendly and attentive.

Hotel staff was very helpful. We will stay here again when passing through.
will definitely stay here again.
