Not bad for a night.

This is the second time I've stayed here, and it wasn't bad. The newly renovated rooms look nice, though the ceiling in the bathroom seemed to be falling apart, and there was a noticeable stain in the carpet near the A/C. Beds were comfortable, though like my first stay, the pillows don't support much. The staff was nice, even welcoming me back even though my last stay was in 2012. For $36/night like me first trip the hotel is worth it, though at $59/night I feel like some people might not see it as worth it.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

For those that mountain bike, the Santos Trailhead is not far away, and the bike shop across the street from the trailhead rents bikes.

Quiet Hidaway!

Many friends came to Ocala for a Performance Dog event. We loved the quiet! No highway noise, and the great staff put us on an end where few people would pass outside. (The dogs are on high alert and tend to bark when they hear people talking or using amenities outside.)This thoughtfulness insured that ALL (us, the dogs, and our neighbors!)slept well! Well lit parking areas added to our overall safe feeling.
