Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kay123 Friendly Staff
The staff was very friendly and responded to our needs. The swimming pool was great and very enjoyable. Breakfast was ok, but I would have appreciated more "health" choices. Having a laundry area right next to our room was perfect.
I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveling3332 In the middle of nowhere
The staff was very welcoming and accommodating.
We got upgraded to a suite. We were surprised to see it looked like a regular room. It was one room with a sofa bed in the room.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. We got in at 8:30. We wanted to order some food in. All the restaurants around the area closed at 9:00p.
Breakfast: well we went to have breakfast at 9:40a only to find out the breakfast runs from 6:30-9:30a. It should be at least opened until 10a.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnP528 Quick stay in Silver Springs
Needed a quick stay for one night that was nearby to mom's house in Ocala. She suggested this hotel and, as usual, Holiday Inn Express did not disappoint. It's only a few years old and is kept in sparkling condition. I won't go into detail as you should find everything clean and in order. Front desk personnel were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Really would have liked to stay another night but other plans were already made. I'll be back for sure!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jdpinclt Sadly Dissapointed about the Roaches
As one who regularly stays in a IHG property 100+ nights per year I was so disappointed by this property. When I arrived to check in I felt as though I was interrupting a personal call the desk clerk was on and he couldn't get rid of me fast enough. He was just so unprofessional and short with me.
The next morning there was a roach crawling across my bedroom floor and this was on the third floor. I do realize that this property is in FL but one would hope that if the rooms were properly serviced by a pest control company that a roach would have a rough time making it to the third floor alive. I do live in the south so I understand that bugs will get into a building BUT, if properly sprayed, the bugs won't live long. I emailed my concerns to the manager but they just seemed to not think was a big deal and if management doesn't care about roaches on the third floor they may not care about them in the first floor kitchen. Didn't eat breakfast at the hotel that morning.

We stayed for our Anniversary and was not dissapointed, my husband surprised me with a night out, and we stayed at Holiday Inn Express in Silver Springs. First my husband talked with Melody and Peter at the front desk, he had purchased Champagne, Chocolates and glasses, ask Melody and Peter if it was possible to have it set up prior to my arrival, oh what a surprise and so nicely set up for us, the breakfast was so good and Anita went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. We are IHG members and were treated like family, I would recommend anyone staying here. Thank You for your help in making our Anniversary a memorable one.

The staff was exceptionally friendly. The hotel is set back away from the road, so no noise reaches the rooms. The facility is exceptionally clean. Overall, a pleasant place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sabrecmc Great stay at a great price!
The hotel was very clean and quiet, staff was excellent and room was quite nice. We had a Florida resident rate, so that made it a wonderful value. Right across the street from Silver Springs and just a few minutes from downtown Ocala.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christi63 GREAT PILLOWS!!!
We stayed at this hotel for our mini-vacation. I searched the Internet prior to booking to get the best motel at the best rate. This was it!
It is very easy to find, you can walk to Silver Springs and Wild Waters. It is a hop, skip, jump to go canoeing. The breakfasts offer a big variety, and the staff is very friendly.
There is not a fantastic view, but who stands around looking out a window when you're on vacation? I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeauShasta Geat service and very clean
We stayed here in Mid March. Really liked our room, very clean. Staff very friendly. Close to everything, and felt safe.
Likes the free internet service, and like the new flat screen TV.
We had a 2 queen bed room with a sofa. Would have been better without sofa in a room that size. Would have liked a bigger wet bar, microwave, and fridge.
Great heated pool, and staff was very friendly.
Nice and quiet room. Breakfast was nice too.
We shortened our original stay, and went to Cocoa Beach. The room and service at Holiday Inn in Silver Springs was 10x better than Cocoa Beach, and less money too.
Will plan to stay at this Hotel when we return to the area.

I have not been in a hotel in a very long time that had a staff as nice as this one. Everyone was friendly & helpful. My desk chair kept on losing the rollers and I reported it. It was replaced quickly and twice after it was replaced, I was asked if it was fixed.
A mgr went out of her way to accommodate us in a handicap room also. She didn't have to do that but on her own she did.

I will stay here again when in the area, we arrived early and they got us right in. Room very clean and comfy beds and the breakfast was good. Not enough tables with umbrellas by the pool but probably the area is small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inknh Beautiful Hotel, Great Staff
We stayed there a couple of weeks ago and were greeted at the counter by an extremely friendly lady who even provided us with cookies and bottled water after learning we'd been in the car all day. The room was clean, beautiful and an excellent value, as we were traveling with two teenagers and we had a room with 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa.
The breakfast in the morning was a nice change from the cereal or muffins that you get from other places - it was nice to be able to have eggs, etc. The location was also great and they give you discount cards to local restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoosenPat Overall experience
I would recommend this facility to anyone visiting the area. The staff, from the front desk to the housekeeping staff was very accomodating, helpful, friendly and made the stay feel like a family experience. We were greeted with enthusiasm and genuine concern every time we entered the motel during our three day stay. And yes, Karla, I did have that beer by the pool. Thank you for suggesting it.

We will definitely make this our go to destination when staying around Ocala (which we do at least once per year). The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and there are lots of new places to discover in the area.
The rooms were quiet, clean and very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CTMAN3 Fantastic Stay
Upon check-in desk clerk Sophia was extremely pleasant & helpful. The night before arriving I tried getting reservations using government/military discount rate & 2 adjoining rooms. I was told the best rate I could get was AAA/AARP & queen suite (2 queen bed w/sleeper pull out). Anyway Sophia was able to accommodate my request. Of course it cost a few $$$ more having 2 vice 1 room, but it was well worth it overall. I as well as 2 other family members were very pleased, especially after seeing the other hotels/motels in the area. Holiday Inn Express for sure stood out & above all the others. Throughout my stay I observed different desk clerk personnel communicate with other guests & all exchanges were professional & pleasing. My hat goes off to the management & staff of this hotel. I will strongly recommend this hotel to others as well as stay here again myself whenever in the area. The location was a bit far from where we were visiting property in Dunnellon, however we were expecting to go on the glass bottom boat ride @ the Silver Springs State Park, however the price was outrageous. No individual price for boat ride, had to pay full admission rate of $34.95.
The hotel via room keys offer discounts @ a couple of local dining establishments. My advice to future guests is to err on the side of caution when choosing a place to dine. The experience my family & I had at the 1 we selected was not favorable.
