Quick check in. A very friendly staff. Clean rooms. Nice convenient restaurant on site with above average food. If your're looking for an affordable, family friendly stop over, this is the place. If you're looking for a destination resort keep driving.

Jason, thank you for taking the time to review our Howard Johnson of Ocala. We do work very hard to provide every guest a safe and family-friendly experience. Our restaurant is open in the morning for both a complimentary breakfast and also for an expanded menu breakfast as well as in the evenings for dinner and room service. Our menu is pretty simple with things like chicken strips, salads, burgers and meatloaf, but you can be sure of hearty portions and fair prices. Thank you for telling others about what our hotel has to offer!

Bill, we are very sorry for whatever circumstances kept you from staying in your own home. However, our Howard Johnson of Ocala staff are very pleased that you chose to make our hotel your home away from home. We are so pleased that we could provide you a comfy room and clean surroundings while you stayed with us. Thank you for telling others about our local Ocala hotel!
