Me and my wife were celebrating our anniversary at Silver River and after a long day of canoeing it was great to come here and relax. Breakfast buffet in the morning was amazing and of course loved that the room had a microwave and fridge. Would stay here again.

Based on other reviews we almost did not stay there, but I decided that it should be fine. The only issue we had was trying to get the Florida Resident discount at the counter. We were told by Richard that we had to book it online and that we could use the hotel's computer to book it. Obviously when we tried to find it online we couldn't and Richard finally booked it for us. The room was clean, A/c ice cold and for the most part it was quiet. The available free tv channels were a joke not much to choose from unless you wanted to pay more money to watch tv.

Thank you for your review. As you can see in looking at our other Trip Advisor Reviews we are consistently ranked at 4 and 5 stars. We are ranked #1 in our area and also have received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and the IHG Torchbearer Award. I am not sure of what reviews you are referring to. Our Florida Resident promo is only bookable online through our independent website and in advance. I am pleased to hear that Richard was able to help you secure that discount. In regard to our channel listing, we offer over 150 channel options including premium channels such as HBO. We do not offer a pay option in regard to our channel offerings, so I'm unsure of what you are referring to. Thank you for taking a moment to comment on your stay. We hope in the future you will give us another try.

Regularly stay at HEI for both business and pleasure and chose this hotel
mainly due to its location. This was my first stay at this location and I was very pleased with my choice. Room is up to date and nicely decorated. All areas including the bathroom were found to be very clean. Comfy bed, good water pressure in the shower and nice towels. Typical HEI breakfast with ample seating. Located across the street from the Silver Springs attraction. If you’re in town for business or pleasure I would recommend this hotel.

This was my second stay at this facility and I loved it even more than the first time when I came with my husband on Christmas Eve 2012. This time, I came alone but had unfortunately hurt leg and ankle a few days before. Ashley at the front desk was just wonderful. She gave me a quiet top floor room so I could rest. She even came along to my car and took my bag upstairs for me because I was hurting, and all with an unmistakable attitude showing that she really cares about the wellbeing of guests. Further, a lovely young woman from the Philippines came by mornings for housekeeping. I did not need much and wanted to care for my own room, but she made sure I had plenty of towels, coffee and toiletries. Her personality and smile were so infectious that my whole day felt positive on the days I saw her. Apart from the already stated positive points, each morning you will be delighted by a wonderful full breakfast to eat either in the breakfast area or take to your room - your preference - but best of all, you will find this to be a remarkably clean facility with a 100% no-smoking policy. Everything smells fresh and clean, and as I have bad allergies, this fact certainly made my stay most enjoyable. I highly recommend this fine hotel, which is located close to all Ocala and Silver Springs attractions, all this for an exceptional price. You will definitely be glad you chose to stay there. I know I will be returning!

Room Tip: My preference is always on the top floor because there is no noise coming from above, especially dur...

We just took our grandkids and stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. We got the suite and it was large enough for our 6 grandkids. 2 comfy queen beds and a sofa sleeper. They were kind enough to put us across the hall from our friends and their grandkids.

The staff was super friendly and gave a great suggestion about a Aquatic Park called Jervy Gant Park off of 36 Ave. We took all the kids their for $2 each $3 adults.

You can not get any closer to Silver Springs and have a great hotel then this. It is across the street. Awesome location!

The property is very clean and the pool was nice & large and they gave pool towels.

The morning breakfast was great: Scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, rolls...fruit.
We would recommend this hotel and would stay here, again.

Room Tip: A suite is nice even if you don't need to use the sofa bed.

The property seems to be relatively new and very nicely furnished and decorated. I have no idea where the bad reviewers were staying but it obviously was not here. There was nothing to complain about. Pete at check-in is an asset to this place! It's obvious by his demeanor and friendliness, that he really enjoys his job. These days with customer service at an all time low in every industry, it was nice to know people like Pete still exist.
The room was very nicely decorated, clean and each bed had four pillows which helps with our bad backs. The entire property was very clean. In fact, when we were driving into the property, Pete was doing his walk through around the place to ensure it was clean! Breakfast was very good which helped save a few $ with our family of 5 with 3 boys. We would definitely stay here and wish all Holiday Inns were as clean and well staffed as this one is.
