Recent guest reviews

We were visiting the area for only a night and found this hotel online. Super happy with the room. It was very clean and just what we needed. My boys enjoyed the pool and loved breakfast. I wish I could remember the name of the women running the breakfast because she was wonderful. She was very friendly and kept everything stocked and cleaned. We would definitely stay here again.

We were visiting friends in the area and decided on this hotel for location. I'm glad we pick on the right hotel. Room was nice, spacious and clean. We had a separate bedroom and living room with a small kitchen. Bathroom was also spacious. Front desk was friendly. Breakfast was basic but enough to start the day. Overall glad for our stay in this hotel.

This is a very nice hotel. My family and I traveled with my husband for work and decided to check out kayaking around the Ocala area. The Residence Inn and manager were very accommodating for our stay. The ability to have two bedrooms when traveling with my 16 and 12 year old boys is HUGE.

I have stayed in Residence Inn's all over the country and this one was not noteworthy by any means. It is a small-town hotel that offers the basics. The location is good and the servjce was good. The quality was the poor part, and I was left wishing for better quality. Room rates were fair and the breakfast was a small buffet of nothing but hard boiled eggs, bananas and cereal (dispointing in all consideration).

I have the pleasure to stay in this hotel several times a year for extended times. There are many hotels in the area and the Residence Inn stands out. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Melissa in particular stands out as always being welcoming and helpful with any questions or recommendations. It is always a nice and welcoming place to stay.

We really enjoy staying at Residence Inn's. Even when we don't have a long term stay, its very helpful to have a few more "comforts of home" with a microwave and kitchen. This hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay. Its located near other hotels and there were plenty of restaurants and stores around in case we needed anything.

Because I was treated very rudly by a member of your front office staff I will never ever step foot in this place again. She was back in the office , leaving the front check-in/check out desk devoid of "any help" to checkout. This person claimed she could not check me out and I had to wait a few minutes for the person who could help to return. With that remark I put my keys on the desk , told her my room number and left.. yes I was charged for my room in advanced. Mean while the 3 women waiting there as well before me , was asked their room number and was informed it was ok to leave. I got no such treatment. Respect goes a long long way with me.. 0 respect low rating.. almost a 1 but the check in and room were good. But because of this treatment at the end , again I shall never return.

did not get a chance to stay and after the way management handled it I would not stay.They have the attitude that they are the only hotel in town.Made a reservation in Feb2018 had to cancel it because of sickness reservation was from 2/4-2/14 they said I had a reservation for 2/12 even tho I was already booked in the hotel,they said it could have been my mistake even tho the Marriott web site showed no reservation so who is fooling who.

Maybe the nicest hotel in about Cala rooms are large and spacious and clean overall experience very quiet at night they do offer afternoon drinks and food all the limited still nice to offer the lobby is set up for one of the lounge type atmosphere in… Restaurants are very close

Loved staying here with my family on the way to Orlando! The rooms were spacious and there was plenty to do for the kids. Breakfast was awesome and the lady attending it was so nice. Definitely will be back if we have to drive through Ocala again.
