Great place to stay that's reasonable and clean. They allow pets which is a benefit to some. Our room had robes, bottled water and Peter Thomas Roth products in the bath. There were 3 plush bath towels which I appreciate. I will definately stay here again.

Your comments are very much appreciated and have been shared with our entire team. Glad you got to experience our wonderful VIP Access 8th & 9th floors. These Key Access floors do give you access to our VIP 9th floor executive lounge, and there are cozy upgrades in each room.
While we restrict pets to part of one floor of the hotel, our pet traveling guests really do love the room they have to roam here at Hilton Ocala.
We look forward to your next visit.

The hotel is situated in an area that is convenient to all of Ocala. Anything you may need is close by. The staff and management at the hotel are very cordial. You are greeted nicely by everyone. The property is very scenic with large trees, etc. The pool area is beautiful although I wasn't able to use it on this trip-too cold outside. The breakfast buffet was a very good way to start the day. All the food there was excellent. I've stayed in many hotels in the Ocala area since the 1970's and the Hilton is far nicer than the others. The bldg itself must be better insulated and thus, is very quiet. At another hotel within walking distance, you hear traffic noise all night. All this and the price was roughly the same as the aforementioned noisy hotel. Being able to sleep in a nice, quiet room is the most important thing for me. This place has that well covered.

I think you nicely said it all! Thank you so much for noticing the small things that make a big difference. The top quality construction of this hotel by the same folks who built Disney in the late 70's mean wide guest hallways, well-insulated rooms and common areas, and of course the attention to details this destination hotel is well known for.
Please stop by and say hello in person so we can say hello.

Not a pleasant dining experience in the winter time! You freeze while you eat......The lobby area and the restaurant and bar all are open to each other the wind blows through the front doors really bad. If you traveling in the winter and plan to eat at their restaurant wear your gloves, overcoat and eat in a real hurry because your food will be cold and you will freeze. Rooms were nice and warm.

Thanks for the comments - and we certainly have had some blustery cold days in Ocala, Fl so far this winter. Even with out double-doored foyer entrance and the vast size of our lobby opening up to a 15,000 sq.ft. patio there are those moments where the cool breeze coming through an opening door can catch a guest off-guard on occasion.
The rooms are always cozy in winter and summer...and Arthur's Bistro is a very popular dining destination. We look forward to your return soon.

Close to the interstate with a variety of restaurants nearby. Not plush but very nice. Got a good rate on price line, probably not worth the usual rate. Pleasant staff and clean room. Silly to charge for internet, though.

Thanks for the quick and candid comments. I am glad you mentioned the internet so we can clarify the two levels of internet service available. Every guest has free, high-speed wireless (or wired) internet access in their room and throughout the hotel. There is an "ultra speed" high bandwidth option that you can choose when logging into our system that allows non-buffered streaming movie speeds....but you choose between free standard high-speed or the paid optionj. we will make a better effort to communiate that to our guests.

Hilton of Ocala offered a great experience

We live in Ocala part time and in Sarasota the other, we were looking for a nice restaurant to enjoy a brunch while in town. Our brunch wonderful, the food, the service and the piano music rounded off our experience. I have traveled all over the world doing reviews of restaurants and hotels, this experience in our own town was quality. I want to personally thank David the manager he welcomed us and offered mimosa as we were waiting for our reservation time, the food had a diversity of offerings to suit anyones taste and the wait staff attentive.

Dont take my word for it, go and experience for yourself

The hotel was very nice and the staff were great. The bed was not very comfortable for us at least. Room did not have a mini fridge, which would have been great when we were traveling from Ohio for a week long trip.

First of all, congratulations on participating in the prestigious Kingdom of the Sun basketball tournament...we were very happy to host the event teams and families here at Hilton Ocala. Anytime there are 11 teams and families at one facility it's a fun time!
Our beds are what most people rave about, but we understand everyone has a preference on the bed they love.
About 85% of our rooms have mini-fridges in the cabinet below the television. I wish you would have mentioned that to our staff and we could have provided you one on request. Let us know if your team decides to play in the tournament again next year....stay warm in Ohio!
