All of the rooms in the next town were booked. This place was the only thing available. Being that i had had a previous experience with another HJ,i was kind of skeptical. Well they made up for how the other place was. Nice rooms. Awesome wifi.Very quiet. And the staff were VERY helpful.
Thank you, Chandra, for the wonderful review of our Howard Johnson Inn Ocala! We are so very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your room and our free high-speed WiFi.

We had family business (death) to attend to. When we tried to get a walk-in rate of $60.00, we were told that the current rate was $159 + tax (174 total). My husband booked the room because of the time. The room that we were given was right beneath the staircase, so all night we heard people talking and going up/down. This motel is right up against I75, so we also heard cars/trucks all night long. The TV in our room was also bad the sound was very muffled. They provide a breakfast, very small area so everybody was reaching over everybody else. The banana's that they put out were all brown, way over ripe. I complained to the manager about this, and also what we were charged as mentioned above, and said that I checked the rates before checking out and they it was only $89. Telling him that I was very dissatisfied, and why we needed a room on short notice, because of a family death and his reply," sorry" but that was the rate last night!!. He didn't even care about why we needed a room on such a short notice. I thought that he would maybe at least give us that days rate, but didn't. That was the first time and last time that I will ever stay at a HoJo's. So because of the treatment that I got I would not recommend this motel. I paid a high price for lousy treatment.....
Thank you for reviewing our hotel. First of all, we are truly sorry for your loss. It saddens us that you were not satisfied with your stay. The evening you stayed was a sold out evening for the entire Marion County area due to events in the area. All hotels were at premium rates during this time. As you did have a coupon, we extended to you a discount off of our premium rate. We have brand new flat screen TVs in all of our rooms, so I am not sure why yours was muffled. As we are an interstate hotel, there is some noise but as you can see with other reviews most guests feel our rooms are very quiet considering the location of our hotel. I have communicated your other concerns to the property managers. It is our practice to go above and beyond for our guests.
