This Ocala Residence inn does not have the friendliest staffs, but the hotel is as nice as the other Residence Inns. The rooms are spacious, clean.
This hotel has a nice out door swimming pool, a basket ball court, a putting green.
The free breakfast are really good.

This hotel is in a quiet area just off I-75 with two other Marriott's: Courtyard and Fairfield Inn. There is also a Holiday Inn next door. Within a mile of the hotel you can find many stores and restaurants, basically anything you would want to find. I had trouble selecting a place for dinner as so many of my favorite places were here. There is a mall nearby too. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained. The breakfast is better than most with two hot dishes along with the Belgian waffle maker in addition to the usual cereals, yogurts, oatmeal, breads and fruit. I only had two complaints and thus I did not rate them excellent. One was that the pool was closed the day I arrived and if I had known I would have stayed at one of the nearby hotels instead (we were however allowed to use Courtyard's pool). The other problem was with the ice maker in my refrigerator. It never really worked. At one point I got a few small pieces of ice but then no more. I informed the hotel desk and they said they would check it out. Besides those two items though, the rooms were comfortable and clean and the beds just right. The kitchenette was nicely supplied with necessary items for a longer stay and I loved the blackout curtains that kept out the light so I could sleep!

This Residence Inn is somewhat different in its layout from the most, as it is in a single multistory building. It is very convenient to I-75, right off the exit 350, in a cluster of other hotels.
It has a quite attractive small lobby and well appointed rooms. Breakfast area is well kept, clean and continuously well supplied with ample choices for breakfast. We stayed here while visiting Silver Springs, some stores in Ocala, and nearby Don Garlits Museum of cars, and we found the hotel to be very convenient to all those locations within a short and easy drive.
Would stay here anytime when in the area.

Room Tip: Location within the hotel does not matter much here, as we found no outside noise, the hotel being s...

This was a nice hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby was laid out nicely. The dinner social was nice with pizza, salad, and beer. The breakfast was fine. The room was modern and comfortable. The fireplace did not seem to work, but I just wanted to test it. It was plenty warm outside. There was a nice, mini full court basketball court. The gym was not large, but adequate.

Thank you for choosing the Ocala Residence Inn! We appreciate your feedback on your stay and we will share your comments with our staff! We do turn the pilots off in the summertime in the One Bedroom Suites with Fireplaces as it generates a small amount of heat. Our guest request is to turn them off while cooling their suites with AC. We are happy to light for any guest that chooses to still use the fireplace during this season.

Check in was smooth, staff was friendly but not overbearing. Suite was immaculate and well laid out. Free WIFI was easy to access, fast and powerful. Free breakfast was fine. Nice living areas downstairs if you want to hang out in a public area. Grounds are beautifully manicured. My second stay at a Residence Inn, and I would do it again!

Due to wanting to be close to Ocala to race RC Cars, we had to get a hotel rather than a villa for our 2 week stay in Florida. We looked at TripAdvisor and the Residence Inn looked just what we wanted. We had a lovely one bedroomed suite for 3 of us with a kitchen area. The bed was big and comfy, the sofa bed not as comfy but as good as any sofa bed. Plenty of storage space. The room and hotel was clean although we didn't need the cleaners in every day. Good variety of breakfast although the hot items were not always to our taste but that might just be a UK v US taste thing - lovely oatmeal though. Basketball, small putting area and swimming pool/jacuzzi to use. All staff very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely book to stay there again when we return

Room Tip: We were on the side overlooking the Holiday Inn next door (Room 202) and we found it fairly quiet ev...
