“Clean and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2007

This conveniently located hotel is not the newest, but it was clean and comfortable, especially the bed. There were cookies in the lobby, reasonably-priced snacks and drinks and check in and check out were the fastest we've ever experienced. We had a king room with a small fridge, microwave, desk and sofa, and though the bathroom was small, it was certainly fine for us. We would definitely stay there again.

The bartenders are great as well.

Very clean hotel.

The restaurant hostess and a waitress were rude to guests. They were unprofessional and uncompromising. The waitress was loud and ugly to a family that had misunderstood their seating directions, and the hostess actually took food away from two little girls in the confusion. Afterwards, they loudly talked about their guests when they had left the area.It was one of the most unprofessional and uncomfortable experiences I have ever seen. I wanted to eat and just get out of there as fast as I could. A hotel should never make their guest feel unwelcome or uncomfortable. Never staying here again, ever.

The room was fine, however the hostess and the restaurant waitress were rude and offensive. The breakfast area was very busy and a young father with two young girls were directed to a table and chairs in an area that adjoined the breakfast area. The two girls got a bowl of cereal which they proceeded to eat, the hostess walked up to the little girls and actually snatched their food away. The father who had walked away was quite upset when he learned that the hostess had taken away the children's food. The hostess was very unprofessional in the manner that she handled the situation. She involved another waitress who joined in the yelling match and the entire restaurant was disturbed. I have never witnessed anything like the behavior of these two women in a so called "hospitality" business.

Folks, let's be honest. This is a decent hotel, but it's not beautiful or fantastic. It is what it is, it's a Courtyard. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, meeting space is adequate. It's a good place to stay over night for a business trip or while passing through. But that's about it, it's really nothing special and the rates are average too.

We spent the night at the Ocala Marriott before we went to Disney World and we LOVED it! The rooms were spacious and clean, and the pool was awesome! We ordered pizza and watched a movie and had a wonderful time. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for three nights in April 2004 and had a very comfortable stay. The bed was good, not as hard as some hotel beds, and the pull-out sofa bed was also one of the better ones I've felt, and was perfect for one of my kids. Breakfast buffet was tasty and varied. Staff was very friendly, and the pool was warm and quite lovely in the courtyard setting. Hotel is quiet, too, because it's not right on top of the freeway (though it is next to the freeway -- but we didn't hear freeway noise from our room).
