Sleep Inn & Suites Ocala - Belleview

Reviewed 11 August 2011

Traveling from Wilmington, NC, to Cape Coral, FL, always requires an overnight stop when you get our age. The problem is often where to stop and get a nice hotel at a reasonable price.
This time we decided to break our trip at the Sleep Inn & Suites, Ocala, FL. That would leave us about 3 1/2 hours to Cape Coral.
We were pleased to see that our choice of this property was a good one. (We have generally had good luck staying at various Choice Hotel properties!)
From the check-in process, made very smooth and pleasant by the on-duty desk clerk. She was even able to provide information on nearby restaurants and gave us coupons for free appetizers.
The rooms were very modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. I emphasize quiet, because the hotel is located right on I-75 and highway noise did not interupt a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed.
Breakfast, advertised a an enhanced continental breakfast, was quite good. There were multiple waffle grills toasters, boiled eggs, very good sausage gravy and biscuits. There were plenty of choices of cereal, and fruit, sweet rolls, coffee, juice and milk. Stephanie, the person taking care of the breakfast room, was a pleasant and efficient addition. Her precence made even an early breakfast a good experience.
Price for rooms is slightly less than what one would expect for such a convenient location.

Room Tip: AAA and senior rates are the best, and using Choice.com makes it easy to make reservations.

Good overall hotel. Melissa gave us great service at check-in. (we did not have a reservation) The room was clean, spacious, and quiet. I had such a good night's sleep I thought I was home in my own bed. The free breakfast they provided their guests was one of the best we've experienced. We will definately stay there again.

Normally, I'm a hotel snob and wouldn't stay here. But all the rooms in Gainesville were booked and we just needed a place to stay. We used Trip Advisor and found this place which had very good reviews. We concur. We got a room big enough for 5 for $55/night. We will stay here again.

This property obviously has been here for a while. The front desk was small and dark. When we got to the room, you again could see the age but it had been refurbished so it was nice and comfortable - and clean. Everything functioned as expected.

Our room was huge. It could have been a suite had they wanted to section it off that way. To cross from the door to the window, I had to sit down twice for a breather.

Would I stay there again, absolutely. Would I go out of my way - probably not. Oh, I forgot, they have fresh sugar cookies at the desk - yummy. They obviously care about their customers.

We stayed in a really fancy hotel for our trip to Disney and we loved it! But when we went on our way back home in VA we stopped by a Sleep Inn, and boy did we love it! We loved it more the the first one we went to! It was so clean and the free breakfast was amazing! We suddenly regretted the decision not to stay in the Sleep Inn in the first place! WE LOVE THIS HOTEL! 07/15/11

Thank you so much for bringing your family to our Sleep Inn and Suites of Ocala while on your way back fro Disney World. We do hope that you get another chance to visit us. There are so many wonderful vacation destinations surrounding Ocala including the nature-themed Silver Springs theme park that you could easily stay for a week and still feel like you didn't have enough time :)

We absolutely loved our room at the Sleep Inn and Suites. There were tons of pillows for the beds and the room was relatively quiet. The showers get VERY HOT, but our room did not have a bath tub..only a stand up shower. There was a lot of light that poured in from the hallway during the night so we put pillows and towels against the bottom of the door to block out light. Tighter doors or weather stripping would solve that problem. The rooms are reasonablly priced! The continental breakfast was beautiful and there was plenty of fresh fruit for our family.

We forgot one of our pillows there at check out and we were just walking into the parking lot when a maid called down to alert the front desk know....so we were able to retrieve our pillow. We were impressed with the quick service and attention to detail. We will stay at Sleep Inns again on future trips!

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly!

Thank you so much for bringing your family to stay at our Sleep Inn and Suites of Ocala and Belleview! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry that you received a room with no tub. All of our standard rooms have tubs but our handicapped rooms do not. Sometimes when we are low on rooms, the handicapped ones are the only ones remaining in our whole hotel. Hopefully next time you stay with us we can get you into a room with a tub.
