“clean and convenient”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

Close to the interstate with a variety of restaurants nearby. Not plush but very nice. Got a good rate on price line, probably not worth the usual rate. Pleasant staff and clean room. Silly to charge for internet, though.

Stayed January 2014, travelled on business

Thanks for the quick and candid comments. I am glad you mentioned the internet so we can clarify the two levels of internet service available. Every guest has free, high-speed wireless (or wired) internet access in their room and throughout the hotel. There is an "ultra speed" high bandwidth option that you can choose when logging into our system that allows non-buffered streaming movie speeds....but you choose between free standard high-speed or the paid optionj. we will make a better effort to communiate that to our guests.

Hilton of Ocala offered a great experience

We live in Ocala part time and in Sarasota the other, we were looking for a nice restaurant to enjoy a brunch while in town. Our brunch wonderful, the food, the service and the piano music rounded off our experience. I have traveled all over the world doing reviews of restaurants and hotels, this experience in our own town was quality. I want to personally thank David the manager he welcomed us and offered mimosa as we were waiting for our reservation time, the food had a diversity of offerings to suit anyones taste and the wait staff attentive.

Dont take my word for it, go and experience for yourself

Congratulations and THANK YOU! You have discovered the hidden gem of Marion County...Sunday Brunch at Hilton Ocala!
Our Sunday culinary team is second to none - they put a lot of thought into each offering...from delicate salads and soups to bold entrees and decadent desserts. Of course my personal favorite is the made to order omelets and waffles. With special discounted prices for seniors and kids, the whole family can enduldge. The young gentleman we have providing piano entertainment is amazing. We are so happy your experience was wonderful and hope to see you back again.

The hotel was very nice and the staff were great. The bed was not very comfortable for us at least. Room did not have a mini fridge, which would have been great when we were traveling from Ohio for a week long trip.

First of all, congratulations on participating in the prestigious Kingdom of the Sun basketball tournament...we were very happy to host the event teams and families here at Hilton Ocala. Anytime there are 11 teams and families at one facility it's a fun time!
Our beds are what most people rave about, but we understand everyone has a preference on the bed they love.
About 85% of our rooms have mini-fridges in the cabinet below the television. I wish you would have mentioned that to our staff and we could have provided you one on request. Let us know if your team decides to play in the tournament again next year....stay warm in Ohio!

if all were treated as my wife and I were, there should not be any problems with any of the many services they provide. We found the staff most outgoing, willing to stop and answer our questions no matter how busy they were. Thank you again for a great stay.

Hilton's never disappoint! We were in the area to swim with the Manatees in Crystal River (about an hour's drive west). We chose this hotel because it was close to lots of restaurants, easy access to the interstate and activities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bartender was attentive and always remember our drink of choice. Highly recommend if you are staying in Ocala.

First of all...congrats on the Swim With The Manatees at Crystal River. that short drive from our hotel is certainly a fun destination for lots of water recreation. I hope you had time to say hello to Buddy, our resident Clydesdale while you here as well.
The gang at the Starting Gate Bar & Grill here at Hilton Ocala are a lot of fun and we were happy to hear they took good care of you, as did the rest of our staff. we hope to see you again the next time you travel or play in the area.

Decided to have a birthday brunch here at short notice. It went very smoothly indeed - David pulled out all the stops to ensure that.(He even went shopping early on the Sunday morning for balloons and table decorations!!- thanks David) Creative menu, attentive and friendly staff and unbeatable prices - fantastic experience overall. Will certainly return when we are next in Ocala.

Great to hear your Birthday brunch went perfectly! David Lewis is certainly one of the finest restaurant management professionals in North Central Florida and Hilton Ocala is proud to have him as part of our staff. Arthur's Bistro continues to be one of the finest restaurants in the area - you will see new menus and other creative ideas at Arthur's as we head into 2014.
Please let us know the next time you are heading our way so we can anticipate your visit and say hello in person.
