“Nice clean hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Nice hotel, we stay here every time we visit Ocala National forest each year. Very clean hotel and room, everything in good work. Above average breakfast, everything fresh with a friendly attendant.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice.

Thank you for your review of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs! We are so glad that you chose to stay with us on your recent visit to Ocala National Forest. We are so luck to be located near the largest national park this side of the Mississippi. Ocala National Forest is an amazing resource. From canoing to kayaking, to swimming, to hiking, the Ocala National Forest has it all. We are expecially fond of the natural springs including Juniper Springs, Rainbow Springs, and Silver Glen Springs. Please tell others about this great eco-destination in our backyard. Thank you!

Nice updated rooms, clean and good size. They had a musty smell. Double room was big enough to fit a roll away. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was the typical free breakfast. Pool looked nice but we did not have time to use it. I found the rate a bit high for a Holiday Inn, but it is one of the better hotels in the area.

Thank you for your review. Our staff really do try to provide a better hotel stay than you will find at many other mid-scale brands. We maintain high standards for cleanliness, customer service and overall value for price paid. We try to price our hotel competitively in the local market while still providing more than our competitors. I do apologize about the musty smell. We try to keep our hotel dehumidifed, even in the Florida muggy weather, and we can provide a dehumidifier for your use in future or move you to a differnt room if ever you have this problem again. Thank you.

Thank you for your wonderful review of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs! We are so lucky to be located right nearby the Ocala National Forest, one of Florida's premier nature destinations. The forest includes a number of special sites including hot spots for swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. A few of these are Silver River, Juniper Springs, Alexander Springs, and Silver Glen Springs. These beautiful, natural phenomena are a great place for the whole family to enjoy. Thank you for introducing these attractions to other TripAdvisor users!

Excellent hotel and location with bright, clean rooms! Karla was very warm and friendly and had our room ready ahead of time. She gave us a rundown of all of the services that the hotel offered, and was very knowledgeable about places to visit with brochures, maps, etc. I was impressed as she had all the information at her fingertips. Wonderful, courteous and friendly staff, especially Susan who made our breakfast an enjoyable experience with a variety of delicious food. We definately would stay there again. Thank you all for an enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the exit door at the end of the hall if you are a light sleeper.

Frances, thank you so much for your wonderful review of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites! Our hotel's philosophy is that brilliance is in the basics. That is why we focus so much time and effort of simple things like service & cleanliness. We know that there other hotels out there that can offer room service, spas, and mini-bars, but our main focus is on offering quality. We believe that it is the quality of service that brings guests back and not all the bells and whistles that some other hotels have. Thank you for staying with us!

We stayed in this hotel in February and were very happy with the clean, quiet and new rooms. It is conveniently located directly across the street from the park. The breakfast room is large and has a nice selection for breakfast. I left my cell phone in my room at check out and Jean of housekeeping found it and turned it in to the front desk. They promptly called me on my wife's phone to tell me they had it. It is refreshing to see such honesty and concern.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express over the Easter weekend while attending a family function. It was located 10 minutes from the function site, with an eady to find location. Plenty of parking, well lighted and close to the entrance. The hotel provided me with a first floor ADA room that allowed me to attend the family function independently and comfortably. The hotel is clean and pleasant with a modern décor. A hot breakfast was available, with a great array of choices, from a cup of yogurt and coffee to sausage, eggs, home fries and pancakes and or waffles.
The queen bed was very comfortable and at a height that getting into and out of bed was easy. For folks with mobility issues, this matters!
Wireless is available and I was able to access the internet easily.
The staff was cheerful, courteous and displayed good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. I will return to this hotel on my next visit to the area.
Thanks for a lovely weekend stay to the staff at the Holiday Inn Express.

We visit my family in silver Springs twice a year and always stay here. It is clean, quiet, and the breakfast in the morning is great. We often arrive very late (or in the early AM!) and there is always someone friendly at the desk to greet us. The rooms are consistently clean and quiet. We are so happy to have this great place to stay only a couple of miles from my parent's home!

Sylvia, thank you! I see this is your first TripAdvisor review and I am so happy that you chose to review our Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs. We want to be THE hotel worth talking about in Ocala. Ocala is a great place to visit or live. Many of our guests come to visit family in the area or to visit Silver Springs Theme Park. Many eventually move here because they just can't stay away from the beautiful natural springs, the attractions, the amazing weather, or the friendly culture of Marion County. We do hope that you continue to come back in the future. We will keep a light on for you :)
