My family has stayed at this hotel several times as an overnight on our way to and from visiting family in western Florida. The rooms are a good size and clean. I like that there is a small refrigerator and microwave so we can make a snack before going to sleep. They serve a complimentary breakfast in the breakfast room in the mornings which is very good, juices and coffee, cereals and fruit, waffles!, yogurt, sweet rolls, etc. The staff is very competent and friendly, no matter what time we arrive. There is a nice pool if anyone is staying longer than overnight. The hotel is far enough from the main road so there is very little traffic noise. The price is reasonable also. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Sandra, thank you so much for bringing your family to stay with us at the Sleep Inn and Suites of Belleview and Ocala! So many people who drive across the state just stay in whatever hotel is at the closest exit when they get tired of driving. When this happens, you never know what sort of property you are booking at. You may be getting a bad deal; poor service, uncleanliy, poor value, etc. However, guests like yourself know that good value and service is hard to come by and it might be worth planning your drive such that you end up at a nice hotel for the night. Thank you for telling others of your go-to hotel on I-75!

Beds where great. Girls at the front desk where very freindly and out going including managment. Single king room was large with a sofa.
If you are a truck driver like me they have room out on the street directly infront of hotel for a few trucks.
This was a good stay.

Thank you Lonny! Our Sleep Inn and Suites of Ocala-Belleview is a great location for truckers who want comfort and quality while on a budget. We offer quieter and cleaner options than many "trucker" hotels while still providing the space that truck drivers require. Many drivers don't realize that our hotel can work with them to set up low negotiated rates that will work with their budget. Why stay at a sleazy hotel when you can stay at an award-winning hotel for the same price or just a few bucks more?

Had multiple rooms and all were very nicely furnished. Excellent location just off freeway. Very clean throughout the property. Breakfast was only so-so. Front desk was helpful and I see why they are an award winning hotel. That explains why the price is a little steeper that other Sleep Inns. I wouls stay here again.

We checked into the hotel and where informed that some idiot had set off the sprinkler system and they had experienced a lot of flooding on the second and first floor. They put us on the third floor in a very clean and comfortable room.

There were at least 8 - 10 people from a company getting the place restored.

Next morning when we went down would have not even known there was damage except for a few blowers drying some carpet..

The hostess in the breakfast room was very good. she offered to make the kids waffles and kept the place fully stocked and was very helpful.

The pool was very clean and relaxing for the kids to cool off in and burn some energy

Thank you so much for your review of our Sleep Inn and Suites of Ocala-Belleview! Disasters like this happen all the time at hotels. Luckily, our general manager Donna was very quick to take action and we were able mitigate the damages. We quickly ensured that all of our guests were taken care of and began setting everything back to normal. Within a few days, our hotel looks as if nothing ever happened. Your review reassured us that we were handling the situation well. In fact, your review was e-mailed as a memo to all of our staff. We take it as a great compliment. Thank you!

We chose this hotel because it was the closest to the tubing entrance to Rainbow Springs State Park (about 15 miles). Check in was smooth and quick. The room was average for the price ($79). Did find it odd that it had a portable dehumidifier in it. The pool was small but kids didn't seem to mind. Sonny's BBQ was located in front of the hotel and was fine except service was a tad slow compared to what we are used to for Sonny's. Had to run to Wal-Mart to get supplies for the tubing trip the next day. It was approximately 7 miles away. The beds were comfortable. However we only got to sleep in them for about 3 hours as we were jolted awake about 3am to the fire alarm going off. We quickly gathered the kids and headed down the 3 flights of stairs and around to the front of the hotel. Upon initial look at the hotel no smoke could be seen. All of the other guests were just milling around wondering when Marion County Fire Rescue would arrive, which was almost 25 minutes after the alarm going off. We noticed guests still in their rooms on the second and third floors. There was no staff outside providing information. As we walked towards the lobby and looking in the glass doors we could see what set the alarm off. A pipe burst for the sprinkler system in the ceiling in front of the elevator and water was pouring out of the broken tiles and all over the floor in all directions including toward the elevator, breakfast area and the front desk. Only one staff member was seen and she was behind the desk frantically making phone calls. Finally after over an hour outside and the fire department shutting off the fire alarm, we were told by the fire captain (and not hotel staff) that they were going to have to cut power to the building for safety reasons due to the amount of water pouring out of the pipe. We were told to go back to our rooms via the stairs as the elevator was shut off and collect our belongings and to check out with the front desk. When we checked out the line was long but orderly and calm (the presence of two sheriff's deputies might have had something to do with that). The night clerk and the general manager (who showed up approximately about the same time as the fire department) were checking people out and not charging for that night's stay and trying to assist some people with finding other rooms at sister properties (who were mostly full). We elected not to find another hotel as we were scheduled to be at the tube entrance at 7am and went and found some breakfast for 2 very tired adults and 2 very tired children. What surprised us the most was the amount of guests that stayed in their rooms while the alarm was still going on and the fact that nobody seemed to go and force us out. We would probably stay here again, but with the damage that done it may be quite awhile before the hotel will be open again.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. Unfortunately, you had a very uncomfortable stay that was not typical of most guests. While you were with us, a guest accidentally broke the head of a sprinkler setting all of our fire suppression sprinklers off. At 3am our hotel only has one person on staff, our night auditor. Luckily she quickly called for help and within 15 minutes we had the sprinklers turned off and our General Manager on the way to the hotel. We did everything that we could to refund every guest and make arrangements at other hotels in the area. First thing the next morning we had damage control specialists in our hotel getting everything back in order. Within two days, there were only a few guest rooms still out of order and in the rest of the hotel, everything looked good and no one would even be able to guess that there had been a disaster recently. Currently, everything is back to normal and our hotel is again in perfect working order. We apologize that you were at our hotel when this disturbance happened. Unfortunately there is nothing that our staff could have done to prevent this from happening but were are very proud to say that everything was handled professionally and many of our guests from that night have said that they will continue to stay with our hotel even after this harrowing experience. Thank you again for your review.
