“Very Relaxing Vacation Stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The Hotel was very clean and always being monitored by the staff.
Renee in the Dining Room was always a pleasure to see every morning for breakfast.
She was great with the kids too.
We will definatly be back for additional stays.

Room Tip: The rooms closest to the pool are great for the kids.

My family stayed here one night. We chose this hotel because of a coupon in a hotel coupon book we got at the FL state line. They did not honor the coupon (of course, it seems no hotel in FL does) but we were tired & they had a pool so we paid the $85. The room was ok but more like a $45 room. The pros : The pool was warm, hot tub worked,the staff was very helpful & friendly. The cons: Highway noise, broken ice machine, and it seems to have some full time residents. Would we stay there again? Not sure.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and your compliments for our staff. I do apologize that we could not honor the coupon when you stayed with us. I am afraid that the coupons are not valid on certain high demand/blackout dates as was the case when you stayed with us. That weekend we were having a Junior Golf Tournament just down the road, a horse auction, and a classic rock concert. We do appreciate that you stayed with us despite the higher rate and we can assure you that other Ocala hotels were also charging high rates during these event dates. Again, thank you for your review.

Adrian at the front desk was super nice. Rooms were very clean, recently updated. We were passing through on business, liked it so much, we stayed there on the way back.
