“Nice place, nicer folks”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

My wife and I recently stayed, again, at the Holiday Inn Express in Silver Springs, Fl. We have stayed there before because of the value it gives, but more importantly, because of the great service provided by the staff. Frankly, it matters little how nice a place is if the staff is rude or incompetent. From the front desk to housekeeping, everyone at this hotel strives to ensure we have a nice stay. We travel through this area each year on our way further south and would not think of staying anywhere else. At the risk of using a tired cliche, these people really do take ownership of what they do at the hotel. Hopefully, we will be seeing them again next year.

Patrick, we want to sincerely thank you and your wife for your wonderful words about our Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs! Our staff really do take ownership and great pride in providing our guests with the sort of service which we would want to receive while on the road. Everyone at our hotel understands the importance of their job - it is not just a way to get a paycheck - we truly enjoy the hospitality industry and treat it as an art form. From Helen the GM to Gene the housekeeping supervisor, we all put in 110%. Thank you so much for noticing and for coming back time and time again. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We received discounts at nearby restaurants and the hot breakfast was great! Rooms were very spacious. Much bigger than we are used to. Great Hotel!

We (wife & I) stayed here while visiting family in Belleview. Did not expect this great service and ambiance at a less expensive hotel. Managment, Staff (Karla, Hollie, Kelli, Helen) all very kind, friendly & fun. General condition of hotel ranks as 4 stars. Always save room for breakfast. This should be a 'show place' and 'training ground' for all Holiday Inn's & Express's.
Like the man said "I'll be back".

Room Tip: Stop at the ''Visitors Center" and always get a coupon book.

Thank you Richard for your wonderful review of the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs! Our staff is very flattered by all of your compliments. Helen, our GM, is a wonderful team leader and sets a great example for our amazing staff.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing two days and nights at this lovely hotel. Having lived in the Ocala area since 1999, this was our first experience of staying at a hotel in Silver Springs. Receptionists Kelli and Karla were extremely cordial, as were other staff members. We're now priority club members and look forward to many happy returns! Vince & Mary Mitchell

Room Tip: Any location should be nice!

Thank you Vince and Mary and congratulations on your 41st wedding anniversary! We are so glad that you chose to spend it pampering your wife at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs. Usually all of our guests are from out of town so it was a pleasant change to have an Ocala native staying with us. It was a wonderful idea to treat your wife to a romantic evening in one of our Jacuzzi suites and we hope that other husbands will take note and consider doing something that sweet for their next anniversary! Thank you also for joining our Priority Club. We love greeting our PC members with cookies and bottled water when they check-in. If you and Mary ever choose to spend another anniversary at our hotel, please call ahead to we can upgrade you to another Jacuzzi suite (this time remember the bath salts). Thanks!

This is a Great hotel and the staff is even better. We spent 3 days of our vacation here and had an wonderful time in fact some of our plans changed so we came back and Spent 2 more days. Kelli, Peter and ALL of the staff are great people and really make you fell welcome.
My wife and her sisters stay at this Hotel a couple times a year while visiting their father and have told me how nice everyone has been to them. Makes me feel better knowing they are safe and well taken care of.
If you are in the Silver Springs area and need a great place to stay this is a very great choice.

Stayed here in Sept and Dec and very pleased with this motel. Facility was very clean and up to date. The staff allowed us park our motorcycles under roof during a downpour. Everyone here was very pleasant and helpful. This motel was a bit out of our way on our December trip, but we knew what the motel was like from our September stay and once again we were not disappointed. Breakfast area was clean and the food was very good. If passing near here again we would definitely stay here.

Thank you so much for returning to stay with us at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs! We are excited that we could be part of your adventure and are very pleased that you took the time to share your experience with other TirpAdvisor users. We always want our guests to start the day off right whether they are spending the day at the Silver Springs theme park across the street, working in the area, or stopping by on a motorcycle trip across country. Our staff always tries to be accommodating and we are happy to make adjustments or exceptions for our guests, such as allowing your to park your motorcycle under the hotel awning. We certainly do not want you to start you day by riding on a soggy motorcycle! If you travel through Ocala in the future, please come back again. We love to see familiar faces!
