I had planned on staying the night in Ocala, but the hotel I had originally booked did not have air conditioning (their system went out that a.m.). I called this location and described the situation & inquired if they had a room available, and they did. They confirmed it was only 8.5 miles away so I was on my way. When I got to the exit (Southboud), it was shut down for the night (construction) and the temporary highway sign clearly stated that this was the case every night for a few weeks from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The next exit was 11 miles South, and then another 11 miles North back to the property. Had the guest service agent let me know the exit was closed, I would have gotten off the previous exit.
By the time I got there, the clerk who was on duty had left and the overnight clerk was very apologetic and completely understood. In the end, the room was clean, bed was comfortable and the a.m. staff extremely pleasant. I would reccomend the property from a comfort standard, and hopefully this lapse of directional help was an isolated incident.
