I was on my way back from SC to south Ft Myers I researched several motels in Ocala which was a halfway point for me. They have spruced up this property and do not try to gouge you with the jacked up winter prices that most hotels do in Florida. Great price for a clean room for a overnight stay.

When I arrived, they originally placed us in a room that was in a building where other guests had pets in their rooms. I immediately brought this to the staff's attention and requested a room in the allergy-free building. They...
