We have stayed at this hotel before and it left such a lasting impression on us that we were determined to fit it into our next trip.
We were seeing friends at Gainsville & were due to visit Thomasville the following day but travelled south to Ocala just to stay at the hotel overnight.
The staff here are courteous, friendly & helpful. Karla, at the front desk went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable & knew where everything was. Every member of staff encountered greets you like a long lost friend & is attentive & cheerful. The Hotel facilities & general areas are clean & well maintained & the quality of the room in terms of cleanliness & facilities available was superb.
Breakfast!!! It's the sort of breakfast that makes you reluctant to leave it's that good.
All in all, well worth detouring for & we'll ensure we do the same again next trip.
