“Comfort and Convenience in Silver Springs FL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

After an intense day of canoeing at Juniper Springs, my husband and I were ready for the comfortable beds, spacious room, and quiet atmosphere at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff was friendly and checked us in quickly. In the morning we had quite a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs and sausage. They even had herbal teas and fresh fruit.

We were happy that the hotel was right on route 40 on the way from Juniper Springs to Ocala where there are lots of intriguing restaurants including French, southern, sushi, and more.

There is a heated pool as well as a fitness room which is open all night. I am used to staying at B&Bs or Mariotts so this was a pleasant surprise. I would definitely come here again to be near the canoeing, hiking, and natural beauty offered by Ocala National Forest.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor which was quiet with access to vending machines and ice. If you have kid...

This is a nice hotel. We have stayed two times while visiting family. We can always count on a clean room, well furnished, nice bathroom , wifi and flat screen TV. Excellent service - everyone was very nice especially the nice friendly front desk.

I accidentally booked this hotel thinking it was along I-75 in Ocala. My husband was not happy when we discovered it was about 7 miles off the highway. What a pleasant surprise. Our room was very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was excellent. They gave us a recommendation for a place to eat dinner across the street. The food was awesome! Next time we need a place to stay in Ocala, we will stay here.

When we arrived the staff were very helpful to us. The one bedroom suite was more than I expected - lots of room in the front area. The kid loved having her own TV and ended sleeping on the couch. I have to use a wheelchair which made moving around the King bed impossible. The bathroom made up for it with the size and conveniences.

Room Tip: Ask for what you want - the staff will do their very best to help you.

We stayed 4 nights while we were visiting friends in Ocala. We had our dog as I was attending some agility training classes and my hubby golfed.
Super super clean hotel inside and out. Adequate room to walk your dog for potty breaks. Quiet.
Breakfast was more than adequate. I did notice a tip cup in the breakfast area. I did not have cash on me at the time and felt bad. Service was great overall.

Very clean room! Free wifi and internet! Friendly staff. All thumbs up. My son forgot his quite expensive headphones in the room. When we got home there was a phone call from the hotel saying they found the phones and would ship it to us if we wanted them to! We really appreciated that!
