First time staying at this location. Will be back! Everything was outstanding. The staff went out there way to be helpful. Christy, Johnathan, Desiree and Wayne were the best! Great location, safe area. This location has everything and in great shape.

Green Features: Very good. I only stayed on night but they have a card for saving use of towels.

Not only did one of our staff make a memorable impression, four did! We sure have shared your comments with Christy, Johnathan, Desiree and Wayne - and yes, they are among the best of the Hilton Team (though there are too many to name.)
We appreciate your wonderful comments and hope you come back soon.
FYI - we are adding a new "fitness trail" with great interactive exercise stations to our expansive back grass paddock. Be sure to take a stroll and check in out.

This hotel is old and tired. We had a suite and it was not up
To typical hilton standards. The pool was descent however. The best part of this hotel is buddy. He is the resident Clydesdale that gives complimentary carriage rides. Your kid can also Pay a dollar and get food to feed buddy or his two girlfriends hop and princess.

The Hilton Ocala is always improving and upgrading our facility. Though our king suites are furnished in the more traditional deep wood styled beds and furniture, there are plans to upgrade them to the more modern look in the very near future.
We are glad you had time to enjoy our enormous pool deck and outdoor areas. Buddy thanks you for the snacks.

I traveled to Ocala because of death in my family.
After Mr. Sergio Miraballes, the director of front office operations, was told why I was there, he
proceeded to make my stay comfortable. You would have thought he lost a member of his family.
Wow what a great man. the entire staff was great, Not even to mention the beauty of the hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to everybody and while you are there meet Mr. Miraballes.
I just wont to say thank you for all your hospitality.

We can not thank you enough for putting such a spotlight on Sergio and the rest of our staff. Mr. Miraballes has been a valuable member of the Hilton Ocala team for over 10 years. There are so many employees here that have been with us for over a decade...it is quite unique and it makes for a memorable visit every time.
We have shared your comments with the entire team - we are happy we made what was an unpleasent reason for travel as nice as possible.

After a long drive from Tallahassee, Ocala was our mid stopping point for dinner and rest. Perfect way to break up our road trip; Soup and Salad at the lounge. You have to try the onion soup, Awesome. Usually you'd stop at the local fast food spot,but this was such a nice change and a good healthy meal. We're making a return trip in a few weeks and have decided to break up the road trip once again and this time make it an overnight stay. The pool looks inviting and our teens will enjoy the chance to stretch their legs and visit Buddy the Clydesdale horse.

Seems you found the end of the rainbow! The dining in Arthur's Bistro is one of the highlights of both travelers and locals alike. Aside from being VERY affordable, Chef Casoria and his culinary team strive to make the American Fusion diing experience as unique as possible.
We look forward to your return trip (and so does Buddy.)

With the exception of the presumptious and aloft bar staff the service and staff was great. I feel the bar staff assumed that I could not appreciate nor would I compensate them for their attention and service. T feel this was based on my appearance.

Thanks for taking the time to give us candid feedback on the bar staff...who are normally the highest rated employees at Hilton Ocala. The Starting Gate Bar & Grill stocks some of the finest bourbons, vodkas, craft beers, and wines in the region.
I am confident that your next visit will experience great service from our team

Here for one night on business. My 7th floor room was great (clean & quiet). Helpful & friendly front desk staff.

Breakfast at the 9th floor Exec lounge was excellent. The best ever biscuit gravy. Hostess Maxi was terrific!

Would stay here again if I'm in the area again.
