I didn't know exactly what to expect upon checking into a hotel for the first (maybe the last) time in Ocala. It was halfway between Naples and Jacksonville, and thus a convenient, and not-so-small town to stay in for one night. The Courtyard by Marriott is typical of the same around the country, except that they haven't renovated the rooms in Ocala (or it doesn't appear to be the case) or hallways. The lobby is renovated. So, I found the hotel room to be just average, clean and just fine for one night -- but not nearly as good as those Courtyards that have upgraded their rooms. I must say, although I arrived very late, my room had been preregistered, and my registration time at the front desk was about 1 minute. Kudos for service!
Price of $134 (AAA rate) was okay, but not great all things considered. I checked out early in the morning and was content to move on to the next location.More
