Great stay

Pros: breakfast & service
Cons: we needed an alarm clock
Location: wasn't there long but appreciated having Cracker Barrel next door!
We were pleased with the hospitality. The breakfast was good -liked the way the eggs were prepared, (the omelets. esp.). At another hotel, they tried to charge $7 for a breakfast half as good.

well priced and convenient

Pros: Pricing, convenience, friendly staff, room size, comfortable bed, good breakfast and great coffee and the hotels computers were easy to get on and use
Cons: Just the pillows, I'm used to "My Pillow" pillow so I'm spoiled. Maybe you can make a deal with My Pillow to supply pillows.
Location: Location is outstanding, Cracker Barrel is next door, gas stations and food places are all in this area.
This was our second stay in this hotel, we originally had a King Bed Standard room, but we were upgraded to a King Bed Enhanced room, a much bigger room, with a microwave and fridge. The bed was very comfortable, the room was excellent. Just wish I brought "My Pillow" pillow as the beds pillows were uncomfortable. Staff has been and this stay also very friendly and accommodating. From the front desk check in to the breakfast staff and cleaning staff, always a smile, a good morning, afternoon, Best Western should be very proud of all the staff in this location. Coffee is great, breakfast food was standard but plentiful and good tasting. I would recommend this hotel highly. Price is great, location is convenient to everything. I have one more trip coming up to Ocala and I will be staying at this Best Western.

Grandson participating sports event

Pros: Location (5 min. off I75) - all kinds of restaurants, shopping, etc. with what we considered reasonable rates.
Rooms are not very spacious, for two adults okay, crowded if with children - beds were standard (forgot how small they are) fine if sleeping alone - the room rates were very reasonable which made it appealing and affordable for these families with children. Nice breakfast room, adequate pool (we did not use it) - hot coffee & fresh fruit in lobby 24/7, and lobby was very comfortable - would stay there again.

We are pleased to know that for the most part, we accomplished this during your stay for your grandson's sporting event. We do apologize if the size of our rooms and beds didn't quite meet expectations, but we hope that you were still able to get a good night's sleep. Again, we are glad to hear that our complimentary breakfast, pool, and amenities helped to deliver the value you were hoping for, and we are glad to know that you will come back to stay with us the next time you are in town.

Right off the interstate

My only complaint is that my room smelled weird. Other than that it was in good condition, good tv, had a fridge, microwave, ironing board and iron. Overall a good room and at the time was the cheapest around.

Hotel close to Silver Springs

Pros: Breakfast was good.
Cons: Better maintenance
Location: Great location.
I stayed in a Best Western the night before and it was great, so the next night I thought we would try it again. We found the room to be not very good. The carpet felt wet, I guess from the humidity in the room. The shower valve was broken so no hot water. We called and they sent someone up to repair it. This man said it was fine, just turn it on a little. Low water pressure when turn on a little. Ok room but would not recommend it.

Simple, clean & accessable

Over the past 11 yrs, twice a year I've traveled to Ocala and I always stay here. It has to be the best value in town. Of the two dozen or so times I've visited this hotel over the years the rooms have never been anything less than immaculate. Plus, I'm not sure if the front desk folks get bonuses for smiling but am I the only who thinks they're the authentically happiest front desk people in the industry? It cracks me up every time. My favorite part about this hotel is how quickly you can get from your car to the room. No huge lobby. From either door you can get to the elevator in under 10 walking steps.

I had a great stay! I was in Ocala for a conference by myself and felt very safe at this Best Western.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, friendly staff
Interior corridors made me feel safer as a solo female. Also, you get parking passes. It is right next to Cracker Barrel, which was very convenient. The staff was AWESOME on my trip...especially BOots. I walk with a cane and she volunteered to get ice for me and helped me with my luggage. The room was clean and I will definitely stay here again!

a little scary on weekend nights for a woman travelling alone!

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy
Hotel was clean and safe, and staff was very helpful. I arrived after midnight and was able to get something to eat at the attached Dennys. There were some questionable characters hanging around outside the bar that is on site. Made me a little uneasy being by myself late at night. Other than that, I have nothing but positives for this hotel. Great price, convenient location, and available rooms on a football weekend!
