“Great business property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stayed two nights. Friendly helpful staff and good location related to my meeting. Would like management to consider magnifying mirrors for female execs. Recommend for business. Best choice in Silver Springs

Room Tip: Back of property is quiet

When I travel I am always concerned about where I am staying. When I travel with my daughter the prima dona, it has to pass her standards of being over indulged over the years. We planned our stay in Siver Springs around the recreation in the Ocala National Forrest namely the springs: Salt Springs, Glen **** springs, Juniper Springs, Alexander Springs and Silver Springs.

After a long day swimming in freezing *** cold water or truckin through the mosquito, no-see-um, snake and gator infested national forrest, the Holiday Inn Express of Silver Springs is a clean and confortable temporary home away from home.

The staff was more than accomodating. The location is central to restaurants and shopping.

We carefully reviewed hotel reviews for areas we plan to visit and the HIE consistently ranks the best. Many other hotels often have mixed reviews, but HIE consistently ranks 4-5 stars.

Very, clean, very comfortable and quiet. The Pool and exercise room are great!

Eisen, thank you for making our Holiday Inn Express & Suites of Ocala-Silver Springs your home away from home during your recent trip to the Ocala National Forest with your daughter. As you mentioned, there are many natural springs to swim in (70-72 degrees), trails to hike, and other nature to experience. We are pleased that our hotel could offer you a comfy place to return to in the evening. Thanks!

We needed a hotel near the Silver Spring park for the concert series and this was by far the best choice. The rest of the motels in the area were run down and sketchy looking. We walked right across the street to the park for the concert.....no driving! Enjoyed the Holiday Inn's lovely outdoor pool beforehand. Everything was so clean and the beds were extremely comfortable! The manager was also so cool and sweet. We saw her several times during our 1 night stay and she talked to us and checked to make sure we had everything we needed. Front desk staff also pleasant and professional.

Sarah, thank you so much for your review of our Holiday Inn Express & Suites of Ocala-Silver Springs. Many people know of Silver Springs Theme Park (soon to be Silver Springs State Park) but they may not know that the venue brings in many big name acts. They especially focus on classic rock artists and contemporary country musicians. It is a great concert location right in our back yard. Thanks!

The suites worked well for our large family. Great service and breakfast! Close to attractions but farther from interstate than I had hoped. They have a great partnership with a local restaurant with discounts and delivery.

Thank you for your review. Our Holiday Inn Express is a little bit of a drive from I-75 but we believe that the extra few miles are worth it. Our location between Downtown Ocala and Silver Springs gives us perfect access to attractions like the Appleton Museum, the Silver River, Alexander Springs and lots of shopping and dining. Thank you for telling others about our hotel!

Thank you so much for your great review! Although our Silver Springs hotel does not have a hot tub to go with the heated pool, we do have jacuzzi suites where you can relax and soak in the privacy and comfort of your own room. You may think that these rooms are expensive but you can request an upgrade for typically $10 (sometimes less). Next time when you book, ask about it. We do even provide complimentary upgrades to guests depending on availability of the rooms. Thank you!

This hotel is in great condition and the staff is excellent. The only downfall is it's not located in a good part of town. If you just need a place to sleep, this is your hotel. We went tubing down Rainbow Springs which was we stayed here. Tubing was fun and less than 30 minutes away. If you're going to tube with kids, you must bring your snacks and drinks in reusable containers or you'll have to leave them behind. We purchased a mesh bag ahead of time so we could tie everything onto one tube. Wear Sunscreen and bring extra!!!!!!!!!!

We have stayed here several times on our trips to Ocala, Very clean and quiet although we always have to ask for more towels, they always just put 2 of each size in the room. Whirlpool tub is a nice extra, and rooms include micro/fridge. I booked my room thru Expedia and got a good price. I highly recommend staying here.

Green Features: This hotel has several recycling bins on the property xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I love that idea.

Thank you for your review of our Holiday Inn Express & Suites of Ocala-Silver Springs! We are so pleased that you have enjoyed our hotel on the several occasions when you have stayed with us. Regarding the towels, our staff are more than willing to fill special requests if you put them in the comments section when making your reservation. Thank you for mentioning the jacuzzi suites. Although these rooms are not bookable at the Expedia rate, they are well worth the few extra dollars to soak and relax in style. Thank you again!
