“Courteous & Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

We stay at Holiday Inns so often they all seem to run together in my mind. This one is a stand-out! It is rare to find such thoughtful and genuinely friendly staff. The front desk, the breakfast room staff, even the maids in the hallway. It was also a pleasure to have a real breakfast included with the room cost. You won't find a cleaner place to stay either.

Thank you for staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs-Ocala and taking time to write and post a review on TripAdvisor. The team at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs-Ocala wants to give each one of our guests the best possible service. The next time you are in town don't forget to visit some of our wonderful areas. There is The Marion Theatre in downtown Ocala. The interior of this theatre has been restored to a nostalgic 1940’s style and feel. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra, established in 1975, is a fully-professional orchestra composed of outstanding musicians from the community and the finest music schools throughout the region. The non-profit organization is dedicated to serving Central Florida with the highest quality in musical experiences. Since 1950, Ocala has had its own community theatre which is the second largest in the state. The Ocala Civic Theatre offers live, professional-quality musical and dramatic productions. The crowning jewel in Marion County's multi-faceted cultural scene is The Appleton Museum of Art, jointly owned by the Florida State University Foundation, and the Central Florida Community College Foundation. Located on East Silver Springs Boulevard and housed in an elegant neo-classical-style building, the museum is a regional landmark and one of the southeast's finest cultural assets. We hope the next time you are in the area, you will stay with us and visit one of these wonderful places.

Highly recommend Holiday Inn in Silve Springs, FL. I was traveling late one night with my young son stopped at midnight. I lucked out finding this gem! IT's reasonably priced with a courteous staff - they bailed me out and breakfast the next mornign was a real breakfast!

Thank you for staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs-Ocala and taking time to write and post a review on TripAdvisor. Each one of our guests starts their day with a complimentary hot buffet breakfast with a large assortment of items. There is something for everyone. Our guests love making their own buttermilk pancakes. While most hotels do waffles, the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs-Ocala allows our guests to make their own buttermilk pancakes. After eating a great breakfast, our guests can either proceed to downtown Ocala's business district or proceed to the Ocala National Forest. Holiday Inn Express and Suites Silver Springs-Ocala is centrally located in Marion County. Within the Ocala National Forest (the largest forest east of the Mississippi), there are numerous fresh water springs such as Silver Glen Springs, Silver Springs, Alexander Springs, Salt Springs and Juniper Springs. There is also bird watching, hiking and fishing venues. We also have deals with horse farms in regards to horse back riding. The Holiday Inn Express and Suites is approximately 45 minutes from the famous St. Johns River. We hope to see you again soon at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Ocala-Silver Springs.

Three days per week I commute to Ocala for business and bid for accommodations on priceline.com in both Ocala & Silver Springs. This is the only place I will recommend in Silver Springs. The rooms are super clean & they offer excellent service from a friendly staff.

I don't need frills . . . all I want is clean & quiet; however, this place does have some nice features. Up to date furnishing, 2 firm & 2 soft pillows, flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, mini fridge & microwave.

Although their breakfast offered a decent variety it was just ok. The regular coffee was weaker than most I’ve ever had (no bold offerings, which might have tasted like regular coffee), the instant “pancake” maker delivered flat & chewy discs (waffles would be better because pancake batter needs clumps to be light & fluffy), muffins grainy & scrambled eggs simply inedible (please change brands). Sure, all continental eggs are from powder, but these really tasted like it. Country Inn Suites in Ocala has the best instant eggs, which fool me well with salt & pepper. But, I digress. What I did enjoy were the potatoes, bananas and cold cereal. Also, I did not try the breakfast meats, peeled hard boiled eggs, or bagels.

This Holiday Inn still earns a full 5 stars. Tweak the breakfast & I’d pay top $$. Keep up the great job!

This is my first review ever on tripadvisior. There is a reason. I was impressed! I have stayed at numerous hotels during my life some extremely expensive, yet I was never impressed with the staff as I was during this stay. I have never had anyone check on me after check in but they did. I was so impressed by a simple call to ask if everything was good in our rooms or did we need anything. Later when I had a need not related to the lodgeing went beyond normal duties to help. It just made me feel important! Of course the rooms were very nice, we have stayed there before so I knew what to expect with the rooms. Comfortable beds, clean with attention to detail. Accolades to Peter and Samantha! They added a good memory to this trip to Silver Springs.

Room Tip: I have no particular comment on how to choose a good room. I have requested to look at rooms in the...
