“Solid stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

If you need to travel to Ocala this is a great option to stay in. It has a great breakfast option and a great Asian restaurant on the top floor. The rooms are very comfortable and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

We just love this hotel. It's in a great location right off of I-75 and is convenient to lots of restaurants and shopping. The first thing you notice is the very cool looking lobby. The staff was great when we checked in and the room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Overall this is a great place to stay.

We checked in in serious need of a shower after driving in from Busch Gardens. I had no idea that I was in for a very pleasant surprise. I don't know if this is a new style property or if it's just for conference centers. It is more an upper class hotel as opposed to motel. The lobby and decor was extremely well done. After seeing the property i was amazed we weren't paying twice what we were. I would definitely go back and will search to find other properties like this one.

Room Tip: Property is just far enough from I-75 that the noise is not an issue. All rooms should be great, we...

We were travelling to Ocala for my Great-Niece's wedding in nearby Bellevue, Fl. This property was very well maintained & convenient to I-75 & Fl SR200. The address was a little confusing & actually kinda around the corner of the actual address, but still easy to find.

The Theme of this hotel is Oriental & tastefully done.
We happened to stay during a Lions Club International Convention & the Hotel was very quiet considering the window to our indoor room was directly across from the elevator on the 2nd floor. We originally had reserved a room with a King bed, but was given a complimentary upgrade to a Suite. Very nice. There is a restaurant on the top floor but didn't have the occasion to visit. There are several Restaurants within walking distance.

I'd gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: The room we had directly across from the elevator was extremely quiet.

My husband booked this hotel for part two of our anniversary celebration. After reading about how wonderful it is we were very disappointed with our stay.
Yes, when you walk in it is quite impressive, the decor is beautiful. That's where it ended for us.
The room we had was a King Suite which was very small, the carpet looked dirty, had numerous small tears and really needed replacing. We invited our in-laws to join us for dinner, but the Sky Asian Fusion doesn't open till 5:00 so there was no lounge available to have a drink and relaxing conversation prior to dinner. The waiter was snooty and we've had better food from a chinese take out. When we went down for breakfast, we wanted a bloody mary with our breakfast and found out from the wait staff that drinks were not available because the owner didn't want it taking business from the restaurant upstairs. Makes no sense to us, if you want a drink before 5, you either have to bring it with you to keep in your room or leave the hotel and visit a local bar. Either way the hotel is losing business. The only saving grace for our stay was the bed. It was one of the most comfortable we have every slept in at a hotel.

I was extremely surprised when I walked into this hotel. It was very modern, clean, and the staff was wonderful. Check-in was quick and they even had a surprise for you. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room was a good size. This is a great value and I now have a different opinion of Holiday Inn's. Don't pass over this one. It is truly a good value.
