“Crappy hotel with inadequate parking”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Avoid this hotel on a busy weekend. Had no choice but to take a smoking room. The room reeked of smoke and the bed was rock hard. The worst part was the parking. They do not have anywhere near enough spaces for the size of the hotel. I came in at 11pm on Saturday night, and no parking spaces were available. I asked the night clerk where to park and he told me to park at the Cracker Barrel. This hotel is in need of an upgrade and a re-engineering of their parking lot.

Room Tip: Don't stay in Smoking room unless you smoke.

We stayed one night to go antiquing. The hotel was perfectly located for the places we wanted to go. We were welcomed by a very nice lady at the front desk, housekeeping staff very friendly, check out staff friendly as well. Our room was on the 3rd floor, facing the interstate. The room was quiet and clean. The bed was not the most comfortable for me , however it was fine for my husband. The best part of staying at a Best Western is the fridge and microwave in the room. We will stay here again, when in Ocala.

Everything clean, nice shower head, no funny smells and a good breakfast for the category. But hard uncomfortable beds in our two bed room. Road noise if on the backside of the hotel. We booked through Hotwire and they refused a change to the quieter side.

This hotel goes above and beyond to make your stay exceptional. Hot breakfast included is an added bonus. Staff is friendly and courteous and always willing to help you find what you need. We stayed 11 nights while in the area for an event, and they helped us find restaurants, shopping, leisure time activities. They took care of any problems we reported. Would definitely return!

I had a great stay with a good comfortable bed ... the shower was great, it was hot, with a strong spray, absolutely great ... the room was clean and it was quiet. A free continental breakfast was offered and there was ample parking although unassigned ... pleanty of restaurants withing walking distance.

I pass through Ocala about once a month and always stay here. It's convenient to I-75, the staff is friendly and efficient, the rooms feel nice, new and clean, and I just feel like I get my money's worth here. I generally stay at Best Westerns and this is one of the best!

We needed a hotel in the Ocala area for a family get-together.The hotel provided the best location and accommodations for our family's needs. The Gym was perfect ,every piece of equipment was in good condition. The staff was friendly & knowledgeable.
