Staff member Dawn and manager Lydia Capote went over and beyond to rectify errors caused by price line. the indoor pool makes it perfect to swim all year long. I would like to see breakfast served at 5:30am. Getting into hotel was a bit difficult. Overall I do recommend this hotel if ever in the Ocala, Fl area. This hotel is only 10 miles from silver springs.

INCREDIBLY friendly and helpful staff. Miss Carolyn at the front desk gave us great recommendations for restaurants and shopping and had a great sense of humor. Tina was super polite and held the elevator for us anytime she was getting off and we were getting on.

Room Tip: We rented three rooms, all of which were quiet, clean, comfortable, and smoke free.

I booked my hotel with hotwire.com which I had never done before so I was a little skeptical. From even before I got to the property Dawn was very helpful and continued to be throughout the trip. I spent most of my time up late with my kids and Carolyn was such a nice person. I will most definitely stay here again if I'm back in this area and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Ocala area.

We stayed here for a night away with another family. Both of us have a little boy. It was PERFECT for this! The front desk staff was accommodating in putting us in rooms next to each other. The rooms were clean, and also were big enough for all of us to hang out together for the evening and play games. We spent alot of time in the pool and hot tub. It was clean and nice. After a great night, they sent us on our way with a very good (and free) breakfast. It's right on the highway, so would be a great place to stop for the night on your way through.

The only thing that is NOT fun is difficult to get into and out of, unless you're headed South, you must do a U-Turn, not easy in the Ocala traffic. Room 409 was close to elevator, quiet and very clean. Betty at the front desk was friendly as well. Lots of great food for breakfast.

This hotel gave away my room on my wedding night an hour before I got there! We went to check in and the clerk told us that they didn’t have our room and they gave away our room because our credit card was declined. I knew that that was a complete lie as we have no credit card debt at all and I have since contacted my credit card company. I immediately asked for paperwork proving that statement and they could not produce it for me. I asked them why they didn’t call us, and they said they called us several times before they gave OUR room away. We just took their word for it because our phone had died during our wedding. Later we checked our phone and we had one message and only one missed call that said nothing about a credit card problem. I then asked what happened to all the stuff that was put in our room at the clerk picked up a plastic bag from behind the counter. Stuffed inside was champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, a sign with best wishes on it, and oh yeah, my beautiful new wife’s lingerie. That’s right, somebody put their hands on her lingerie. Needless to say she chose not to wear them that night.
