The exercise equipment, especially the treabmills was old and in need of repair. The computer in the business center, very old and very slow. This is not what I would expect given the rest of the hotel and it's billing as a conference center. Disappointed. May go back to Homewood Suites, Ocala for my business travel.

The girls loved the hotel, everything about it was just great. They plan to come back for a weekend stay in the near future. The location off the interstate 75 was the perfect "halfway point" between Jacksonville and Tampa Areas.new

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol557 "Wow" Beautiful Hotel
I really liked this hotel for comfort, price and the bed was really great. I loved the shower and the noise level of others was nonexistence.
I was confused regarding the free breakfast. I went downstairs and the women that waited on me and my family acted as if she was doing us a favor. We had to seat our self after standing there for five minutes per the (wait to be seated sign). We decide to go eat breakfast for the rest of our stay at BOB Evans down the street. Also their free coffee is terrible. Go to Dunkin donuts!!!
Trust me. They need to do better.
When you walk in the front door you get a sense of home me feel and relaxation.
They had an Asia restaurant there that looked great but I have a sea food allergy so I didn't try it.
No problem with parking and check out was a breeze.
I'm going to stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ddixon350 Very Clean and Comfortable
My family was attending a wedding in Ocala, FL and this was the host hotel. From the time we pulled onto the property until we entered into our rooms everything was nice and well kept. The rooms smelled nice and the bed was very comfortable. Any time that we are in Ocala, FL this will definitely be my place to stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GHRYH Best Holiday Inn!!!
We have stayed in this Holiday Inn twice now, on our way to Florida. We have stayed in many Holiday Inns, and the Ocala Conference Centre has to be the best. The decor is great, it is clean, the food is great, staff are pleasant and helpful, and it is great value for money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tlg58 Very nice place customer service could use some work
Very nice Holiday Inn room was very comfortable.
My only problem was when I checked in
The associate that checked me in I thought
was not very friendly. I thought ok she's had
a bad day but customer service is everything.
So next day had to deal with associate when
checking out and kind of same attitude which you
could say I live in hotels cause of work and never
write reviews but this service made start.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisFlorida such a cool hotel
I've never stayed in anything quite like this Holiday Inn. I was in town with my girlfriend for a cocern and saw this location and a Holiday Inn Express down the street that had mixed reviews. We decided on this one, and it was worth it. The décor inside was cool, the room was nice and new, I think it was a memory foam mattress. Everything was great. The upstairs restauraunt was really good for Chinese food and the drink specials and meal coupons helped as well (as an IHG member). Would definitely recommend

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed28 Never again will I stay here!!
They made me pay full price for a my room even tho the shower wasn't working properly. I let them know the first night I was there and they said they would fix it while I was out. Came back later on and it still didn't work. They never said anything or offered to put me in a different room. If you want a proper working shower and to get what you paid for don't choose this hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SherriC Not true to details on the website and not customer friendly
Let me start off by saying that the employees of this hotel (except for the front desk) are amazing and should get 5 stars but the front desk ruined that rating. I did not get the room I paid for until I advised CitiBank what happened and they called the hotel. Also The Cypress Shadows Cafe is only open from 7am-10am and not open in the evening as the pictures listed on the website and they only have 2 balcony rooms (which is also not stated on the website). I have stayed in many Holiday Inns and this one was below standards when it comes to satisfying the customer. I had called the motel 3 times to confirm my rooms and they still gave my room away because a Gator game was in town, way to treat someone who booked 45 days in advance. I would not stay at this motel again for fear I would not get what was promised again and by the way, the Asian Fusion Rest. on the top floor is not made for families or a relaxed atmosphere.

Very receptive staff. Lovely ladies, friendly, helpful with our need to change rooms, courteous, a real pleasure to be met by. A real reason to stay here as often as we do. Did not eat at the hotel restaurant this visit, but missed not doing so. Bar service was very accommodating to our need to take wine to our room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mtsar6 Excellent Rooms, Sub-Par Service
If the quality of the staff equalled the quality of the guest rooms, this would be a first class facility. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I experienced problems during previous stays at this property. the rooms were always nice, but the service provided by the staff was the problem. Following the problems during my last stay, the GM convinced me to give them one more try. I did, and I wish I had not. I was upgraded to an executive suite which was very, very nice. However, the sub-par service that plagued this property on previous stays was unchanged. On two previous stays the fitness center was undergoing renovation, and the treadmills in the "temporary" fitness center were not working. Yet despite several months of opportunity to fix these items, they are still not functioniing. I was given a business card to use a local gym across the street, but their hours were limited and did not correspond with my check in and check out times. I was also given a voucher for free breakfast, but when I showed up at 7:15 for breakfast I waited 5 minutes at the restaurant entrance and never saw a single restaurant staffer. Sadly, this is typical service for this property.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pete300 bad service
we stayed 3 nights.
The trash was not picked up, in the room..
they never replaced the coffee, sugar, and never clean the coffeemaker.
The maids, have very bad attitude, not even good morning.
The hotel is nice, but very poor service.
I'm a platinum member for many years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nationaltraveler Clean, Quiet, & Comfortable!
It was the cleanest holiday inn we have ever been to. They had several events downstairs, but we never knew up in our room. It was quiet and everything was very comfortable. The bed was great and the living area furniture was so nice. Room colors were aqua and lime green, which was very soothing-- believe it or not! They upgraded our room for being a priority club member. Most hotels just say it not available. Great experience!
A must stop for us!

We really enjoyed staying here! The room was large. We had called for more towels and within 10 minutes they were at the door. The ac was controlled by a wall system. The only downfall was no safe in the room. They do have a safe deposit box at front desk but was not big enough for my needs

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and the restaurant was great. I was disappointed that the hot tub was not open. This is one of the first things I look for when booking a room. We will stay again on our next trip and hope the hot tub will be in operation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kilsekddd Not your usual flimsy review, this is REAL
Yeah, so you wanna have a good time in Ocala, you best stay at the Holiday Inn. This place really helps you forget that you're in cow country with all the fancy decor and modern cuisine. The lobby simply stunned my wife. She was ready to fall into my arms as soon as we walked in the door. The cozy love nest in the center is a great place to hang out and warm things up a bit. All the help was sweet as honey, no matter how weird the request. Up on the sixth floor, the staff was on point! Our waiter was droppin mad product knowledge on us like a wise prophet. His name was Kenny and apparently, he was told how it really is in Asia, which he shared with us. The food was dynamite! Tender morsels of fancy name dishes that just had my taste buds hoppin. Inside the room, the cool blue walls and stylish plants were really easy on the eyes. Now, the bed hoooowee, that was a nice bed, with some firm pillows and some soft pillows. Boy, my back can't take a swayback bed and son, this bed delivered. I work up feeling like I got a massage somewhere during the night. I can't say enough good things, but I'll definitely be back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappyandsleepy loud refrigerator and sorry toilet
Every time the refrigerator cycled during the night, it woke me up. The air conditioning was running earlier in the day and you could not hear it. After the room cooled down, the noise was awful.
There was barely enough water in the toilet for it to flush properly. How much water do you really save if you have to flush multiple times to get rid of the paper????

This is probably the best Holiday Inn I have stayed in. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and the food was excellent. As a Platinum member I stay in a lot of Holiday Inns but this is the best one yet. close to I-75 and other restaurants.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mtsar6 Nice Room, Lax Attention to Maintenance
Maintenance and customer service are not hallmarks of this property. I have stayed here multiple times for business. The rooms are very nice, the restaurant is excellent, and the front desk staff are cheery and personable. Unfortunately, once you get past that veneer, there are problems. On my previous stay in July of this year, I had a problem with a fitness center treadmill that did not work. I reported this to the front desk that evening and was told that it would be fixed. When I checked out the next morning, I mentioned it again. The lady at the desk checked the maintenance log and reported that "This problem has never been reported." The problems with that stay got worse when I went to submit my expense report and found that another guest's receipt had been slipped under my door. This was an honest mistake, but it took three calls to the hotel, the final call being to the general manager, before I got the correct receipt emailed to me.
A month later I stayed again. When I got to the fitness center the same treadmill was still inoperative and was not even marked Out of Order. After returning from dinner I tried to get onto the internet to get some work done. The internet was not working. I tried to call the front desk, but the phone rang 20+ rings, until it finally timed out and stopped ringing. I tried again 10 minutes later, same response. No one was answering the phone at the front desk. Another 10 minutes later, the phone was answered and I was told that they were aware of the internet problem, that tech support was unable to fix it, and that the "expert" had been contacted. When I tried to access again in the morning, the internet was still down. If I had known this I would have checked out the previous day and found a hotel with working internet.
After checking out, I spoke with Jay, the general manager, about these problems and he apologized and gave me his email address to contact him the next time I visit. However, there was no other offer of assistance. No additional reward points or any other tangible indication that things would actually be better if I decide to visit again. At this point I am undecided. This property is on Strike Two and I am not sure whether I want to give them an opportunity at Strike Three.
