“Nice place to stay on I-75”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We had a great experience a few days prior at a Residence Inn so when we stopped in Ocala, we drove directly to the Residence Inn. This location was pricier but just as nice. Great studio-type room with living and dining area, kitchen, sleeping area and large vanity/closet area. The bed was very comfy and the room was very clean. They offered a free buffet at 6:30 pm with wine and beer, We were tired and decided that the buffet would be fine. The hot breakfast buffet offered waffles, scrambled eggs, potatoes, oatmeal, and cold cereals, bagels, breads and sweet rolls. It has a very nice, friendly atmosphere. We'd stay here again.

We stayed here with on our way to florida. We were travelling with our golden retriever and while the non-refundable $75 pet fee was very steep, it was wonderful to stay in a super clean, welcoming and comforting hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and night stay and will absolutley return.

This hotel was very nice from the outside to the inside! Very nice lobby area. The rooms were very clean and nice and spacious. It was very quiet, but the hotel was pretty empty due to the off season travel time. It is close to the interstate and there is some traffic noise, so if you are a light sleeper it might be a problem. Other than that, we were very happy with our stay here and would stay again. The breakfast buffet was nice. The staff were very friendly. We didn't use the pool, but it looked like a nice area. Close to restaurants and shopping.

Located just off I-75 this hotel is clean and well maintained. Staff are courteous. Very quiet despite busy lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Pool is a bit small but rarely busy.

I stayed here last year, decided to return this year, I'm still pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. Nice room, nice location and right off the interstate, I look forward to next year.

My wife and I have stayed at this inviting property for two weekends in a row. We drive up from Orlando to attend training in the Ocala aree for my German Shepherd puppy. The entire staff, especially Cindy at the front desk and Gilbert, the engineer, make this the lodging experience to beat in Marion County.

I travel extensively and this Residence Inn by Marriott is unbeatable in its class. They really have the formula for cleanliness, service and hospitality down pat. The hotel is perfectly located in a quiet corner off of I-75 and is close to shopping, restaurants and our two favorite stores, Pet Smart and Gander Mountain!

Don't miss this one when you are in Ocala, you will find out that it is even better than I have described.
