“We'll definitely be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Everything you need - nice property, very clean, quiet, really comfortable bed and a good selection of items for breakfast. Staff were helpful, friendly and genuinely welcoming. They'll also give you a flier with discounts at several nearby restaurants. Location was terrific - closest you can get to our destinations, which were Silver Springs Nature Park and Silver River State Park. In fact, I was even impressed by the helpful information posted in the elevator about the state park - it was exactly what we needed! We're already planning our trip back to the other nearby springs and will definitely stay here.

Thank you Missy! Our Silver Springs Holiday Inn Express is very excited to tell travelers about all of the wonderful things that you can do around Ocala. We recently partnered with the local Marion County Parks and Recreation Department to bring our guests even more information about local cave tours, zipline tours, and river inner tube rentals as well as the Ocala National Forest and Silver Springs Theme Park.

I can't really think of anything wrong with my stay here. From the start I was greeted with a friendly smile and help from the staff. I also had a very clean and comfortable room. I also appreciated the breakfast in the morning. It had quite a bit of variety. Overall a a great stay and I am sure I will be back as I will be doing business in nearby Ocala on a regular basis.

We chose this hotel for its convenience to all our activities. It was 20-30 minutes to each of our destinations. Alexander Springs, Santos bike trail, and Canyon Zip Line. The room was much bigger than I expected. Two queen beds and a pull out sofa. It had an efficiency kitchen. It was so clean and everything looked new. The bathroom was large enough to use as a changing room for the only female (mom) in the group. Free breakfast in the morning. The staff was absolutely wonderful. So eager to help and give recommendations for local restaurants. It was perfect. We'll be coming back soon.

Ameria, thank you for your wonderful review of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Ocala and Silver Springs! Most people do not htink of our hotel when they visit Ocala, however, we are one of the best places from which to visit many local eco-tourism destinations. You mentioned The Canyons Zipline and Canopy Tours. Our hotel actually has a discounted rate with them so that our guests get a reduced price at the zipline and likewise, zipline visitors get a 10% off discount on our hotel rooms. It is a win-wn. We are also close to the Ocala National Forest and all of its natural springs; Siver Glen Springs, Alexander Springs, Juniper Springs and more. We cannot wait to see you back again next time!

I attended a friend's birthday party and the HI express was the nearest hotel. I checked in at 4 pm, the reception was nice and friendly. Room was great especially the bedding and towels. Although there were a number of children, the room was quiet. Breakfast was on the iffy side but the coffee was good. If you stay the wifi signin is on the key card. Also there is a discount if you dine at the Hare and Hound which is close by.

We stayed 2 nights here to go to a wedding taking place in the area. The accommodations are very nice. Everything was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the buffet breakfast had a good selection. Also, it is in a perfect location, within walking distance to the Silver Springs park. I would definitely recommend this Holiday Inn Express.

Holiday Inn Express Silver Springs is one of the nicest Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed at. A lot of that may have to do with the fact that it is very new, but regardless it was nice. The staff was very polite and friendly and accommodating to my needs. The room was nice and the beds were comfortable. The room price was very reasonable, especially for a mini suite that can accommodate a family of five. Anyone travelling with a family of five knows how hard it is to find a hotel with a room that will accommodate five people, let alone at a reasonable price. The free breakfast was the typical fare you would find at any HI Express or Hampton Inn. I was a bit aggravated, however, that they ran out of their signature cinnamon buns an hour before the end of the breakfast service. They did have a really cool pancake making machine that almost made up for the lack of cinnamon buns. The location of the hotel is great, especially if you are planning to go to Silver Springs and/or Wild Walters. The hotel is right across the street from those parks, so you could literally walk to either park and avoid the $7 parking fee. I would definitely stay at this hotel again the next time I travel to Ocala with my family.

Thank you so much for you wonderful review of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Ocala and Silver Springs! Although we are part of a brand of hotels, we truly work to set ourselves apart and offer superior service. We go the extra mile when possible to ensure that our guests get the best service possible. Our hotel is about 5 years old, but as you mentioned, it looks like new. This is because we are constantly refreshing rooms with new paint and new linens, as well as fixing any scratches, nicks, and dents as they happen. Although I am glad that our hotel surpassed your expectations in many ways, I am very sorry that we ran out of the cinnamon rolls before the breakfast ended. We try to keep things well stocked and we certainly want all of our guests to try our delicious rolls.
