Stayed here two nights ago, for one night. I dont normally stay at these places, but had to for work. Lication was safe, but not near any chain restaurants- just local gas stations. Check in went well, the front desk man moved me to a room with a fridge and called up to the room after a few minutes to check if the room was satisfactory.
Room was older, but clean and looked well kept. Bed was comfortable. Pillows actually smelled good.
The businesss center was one computer at the front door. No privacy or confort.
I was kept up by my neighbors television, but that is not the hotel's fault.
Didn't see breakfast because I left at 5:30 am. I would not stay here again unless I was hurting for money, BUT I didn't mind it and IF you stay at hotels under $60 a night- then this is a great, clean hotel! The best cheap hotel I've stayed at.

Stayed overnight on the way to Florida. This place really blew me away. I was impressed with every facet of the place. Clean room, comfortable beds, friendly staff. What more do you need.

My name is Jim Henry, and the reasons I know of the Management and Staff of Red Roof Inn, Ocala,FL, is that I went there for a couple of days of days and business held me over for another extended week. I had time to observe and speak to Management and Staff as they all made themselves available to me, at different times during my stay. I felt a warm and home experience there with all the extra ammenities, available to me. I also noted that all the guests received the same care.

I found the Red Roof Inn, Ocala, FL to be exceptionally clean and the grounds well kept. This is a credit to the Staff.

Anytime I am in their area I don't hesitate to head for Red Roof Inn,Ocala,FL. I bypass all other hotels/motels to stay at their Red Roof Inn, Ocala, FL. It is like "Family".

I know I will be taken care of and the Security at the Red Roof Inn, Ocala,FL is excellent as I have experienced this first hand on the inside and outside of the building.

I had received a business phone call, and the Staff knew I was on the premises. The Staff checked the monitors to locate me so I could take care of my business call. How is that for exceptional care?

My business is going to bring me back to Ocala, FL this week, and I have already made arrangements with Red Roof Inn, Ocala, FL. I am looking forward to another comfortable room, just like the last time, and also seeing the Staff as they are like "Family".

I had the pleasure of traveling to Ocala to see my daughter who had just moved there. After reviewing all of the trip advisor posts raving about the hotel, its amenities and its staff (especially Jessica) I had to see for myself. What a pleasant three days The lobby is very luxurius with a fabulous chandelier, the morning breakfast is unbelievable (better than most full service breakfasts), the housekeeping service great and the hotel and grounds were very well kept and the information provided by Jessica was extrememly helpful in directing me around town, prividing places to eat, sights to see, places to swim etc. She is definitely one of the best hotel guest service persons I have every come across. It was impossible to tell if she was ever having a bad day as there was always a smile on her face, what a pleasant young lady! I will definitely use this hotel again. Thanks so much for making my stay enjoyable!!

From the lovely,chandeleered atrium style lobby to the perfectly appointed superior king room, this hotel proved brand does not always mean lack of quality or guarantee quality.
The front desk with Jessica proved to be very helpful, totally pleasant and funny, exceeding my wants and she bakes a mean chocolate chip cookie!!
My room was immaculate and kept that way over my 3 day stay. Intermet service is free and very fast,
I had a 3rd floor, back side room with a nice greenery view.
Since I did not know thw area, with the great directions from Juan and Gilberta, I never got lost--thanks!!
Breakfast was continental with muffins , bagels and danish individually wrapped- sanitary and fresh. There is 24 house cofee, latte and hot chocolate from a special beverage dispenser.
Pleanty of parking, quiet and very safe and convenient location near many restaurants.
If you want a 4 star experience without the 4 star price ,this is it!

Room Tip: I requested a top floor room when I made my rez and got it. Ask for a superior king top floor,facing...

In 30 plus years of traveling you run into all kinds. When you find a special person like I did in Ocala, FL you just have to make a comment. There are times when one person can make an entire company and that is just what Jessica at the Ocala Property did one day in July 2011. People were actually making trips to the desk to talk with and ask Jessica questions. And, they were all answered, with professionalizm and went on their way with a smile on their face, including me. But none of our smiles could compare to the smile of Jessica. What a wonderful person (what ever she makes give her a raise). While in Ocala you will find the what makes the Red Roof Inn there a wonderful place is that one person and her name is Jessica........Steve C
