“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Very road weary after a long day of travel, I was pleased to find such a great property. Check in went smoothly. The lobby, elevator and room were spotless. The bath towels were plush and linens were crisp and newer. Very quiet hotel with no noise from neighboring rooms. I left before breakfast, but was able to grab a carton of milk and box of cereal. It's always nice to have the boxes of name brand cereal rather than some generic dial-a-bowl.
This was truly a GREAT stay.

Overall the hotel was very nice. Our room was nicely furnished with multiple receptacles for electronic devices. My disbelief was at breakfast. No eggs. The serving dish had an area for eggs...but it was empty. When I asked the attendant she just shrugged her shoulders. She also seemed to be overwhelmed with the number of people and should have had help.

We had been on the road 10 hours and I checked Tripadvisor for recommendations in Ocala as the Tourist Information center entering Florida stated that Gainesville was probably booked solid. We called due to the excellent reviews here and got the last room. The front desk staff held the room for us as we were an hour away and recommended a great restaurant close by called Mimi's which was obviously a favorite with the locals. Just a wonderful relaxing stay after a long day on the road. It gets 5 stars plus for having windows which open 6 inches for fresh air and a delightfully comfy bed.

The Residence Inn is a relatively new property and this was a return trip, having stayed here last year. Typical buffet breakfast - hot and cold items....they did try to vary the hot items each morning for a bit of variety. Room was nice and clean but the housekeeper failed to mop the bathroom floor one day. There were shoe prints (having walked in some mud) on the floor and this was missed during the cleaning of the room....A call to the front desk quickly remedied the situation. Otherwise, the stay was "uneventful"....staff was accommodating and courteous....and never appeared rushed or rude.

Spent a couple of nights here to get to know the area instead of just rushing through. The Residence Inn surprised us on all counts. Pleasant location, welcoming and efficient check-in, room upgrade, fast internet access for guests, cocktail hour with warm food available, good breakfast and everything clean. Absolutely nothing to complain about!

We were driving Key Largo, FL to New Orleans, LA, and had booked this as somewhat of a 1/3 stopping spot. I have to admit, I did not have high expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. The front desk had everything correct about the reservation & made check-in a breeze. We were informed about the evening cocktail hour as well as the morning's breakfast. The room was clean and modern and welcoming. The bed was just right. In spite of folks leaving at varied times, we were not disturbed by a single sound.
Upon departing, the front desk noticed I would be returning in a week and gave me a cheery send off of "we look forward to seeing you again next week."
Could not have asked for a better experience!

Can't say enough about how accomidating, friendly and helpful the staff was on our trip last weekend; especially Jose the manager who was on all weekend. We had a large group with small kids running around the lobby and they never complained, in fact Jose turned on a cartoon and made them popcorn one night. Spent a lot of time by the pool and hot-tub, they were super clean and again nobody complained about the kids. Rooms were modern and clean. Breakfast was good, the complimentary dinner was a little slow to come out and wasn't really filling or geared toward the kids, I'd skip it unless you're really into free meals.
