This hotel is a great value! We were pleasantly surprised at the great attitude of the long term staff. This far exceeded our expectations when we booked this as part of a wedding block. Our room had been redone and the whole property is kept very nice. We would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting all the basic services of a hotel along with being served by a great staff.

Room Tip: Stay in the section across from the office which gets less noise from the Interstate.

Cedric(not sure of last name) has been my go to guy when I need help, or just need an assist in booking reservations. He is a very professional employee and get the job done the first time.

I started using this hotel a few years ago and Cedric has helped me when bookings were tight or I needed a last minute change.
Hojo's is a fine hotel but Cedric makes it a GREAT hotel.

Thank you Julia! Our Howard Johnson Ocala is extremely lucky to have Cedric and Adrian. Not only are they great at keeping our hotel running smoothly, they are funny and they know how to flatter our guests :) It is so refreshing to meet people in the service industry who truly enjoy serving. Our guests can tell that Adrian and Cedric are completely sincere in their desire to provide great service. From all of the staff at HOJOs, thank you and see you again soon!

The Hotel was very clean and always being monitored by the staff.
Renee in the Dining Room was always a pleasure to see every morning for breakfast.
She was great with the kids too.
We will definatly be back for additional stays.

Room Tip: The rooms closest to the pool are great for the kids.
