We were passing through Ocala headed to South FL from Tallahassee after a late start and decided to crash. Somehow every hotel in the city was booked solid. Hampton Inn folks recommended this hotel. Because of their availability and our previous experiences with hotels we totally expected it to be a dump. We were very surprised to find that this... More

Very Nice Room, Great Service. The Place to stay if in Ocala. 45.99 a night didn't hurt either. Clean and Comfortable. Any time I come back to Ocala I will stay here. May upgrade to the Jacuzzi suite next.

This hotel is wonderful ! I was given a cozy, quiet room, with a fireplace and flat screen TV both on/in the wall. The decor was charming and the bed was comfortable and clean. They even served real cream and real butter at the continental breakfast, which I always appreciate when travelling. The staff was friendly and helpful. I felt... More

The photos someone took are dead on. I booked through hotels.com and booking through that company was a huge mistake in iteslf. I cannot even believe this place is not condemned. I booked for 2 nights and refused to even stay there for one night. Lost about 200 dollars to hotels.com when the hotel's price was actually 75 dollars cheaper.... More
