the staff was very polite and helpful ,the place was very clean and no roaches and the rooms smelled good..they are renovating . the maids are very nice and quick with their work but very competent . overall this is a good place to stay and the cost is a little high in these hard times but everything is high now.

Room Tip: room 230 is very comfortable

We have stayed at this HOJO a number of times and have never been disapointed.

Reasonable rates for a nice hotel.

Could use a bit of upgrading of the furniture and especially the carpeting.

Grounds are great and the pool & hot tub are worth the stay.

Bath area is clean and water pressure is great.

Dressing area a little dark but usable.

There seems to be a lot of event stays (Proms, Reunions, Horse Shows etc) here as we have literally run into them every time we stay and we don't always stay at the same month so make sure to book your reservations ahead of time

Room Tip: Try to get a ground floor room under the awning by the pool.

Thank you Stan! As you mentioned, Ocala is a busy place and our Howard Johnson stays pretty full much of the year. Weekends especially are kind of crazy because of all of the events going on in the area. We agree that it is always wise to book your reservations in advance so that you are sure of a hotel room. However, our staff will work hard to get you in no matter what. Thank you again for telling others about us and choosing to return to our hotel each time you come to town!
