Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jetsetter777 Good room, service, but bad breakfast.
My company's booking rep chose this location because she had stayed here previously and said this hotel had nice rooms along with a great breakfast. I thoroughly enjoyed my room. It had a microwave, mini refrigerator, and mini coffee maker. Bed was comfortable with lots of pillows (which I like) and the room and bathroom was very clean. My only qualm was the breakfast. The apple juice was watered down, so I threw it out. The coffee had a very stale taste, so I poured it out too. The banana I chose was the last one that wasn't overly ripen. I didn't bother with any other fare because my training companions had complaints about what they were eating. I suggest going to one of the area restaurants for breakfast or stopping by the Publix supermarket, which is what I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stretch1 Great Experience
We have stayed at the same location on two different occasions and have had a great experience both times. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They answered our questions regarding directions and about sited in and around Ocala.
The rooms were spotless and the beds were to die for, especially when you have driven many long hours.
We would highly recommend this Holiday Inn location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobBCNY Nice hotel
One of the better HI Express hotels I've stayed in. I would have given higher marks had we not had an issue on the final night. Our room was not cleaned (towels, trash etc.).
Overall a very nice hotel.

Arrived very late on Friday. treated well and check in was a breeze. Enjoyed three nights of very comfortable sleep and relaxation. Staff was very nice and accommodating. We visit Ocala at least once a year and this is the nicest Hotel to stay in especially since we bring our pet with us. Thank you for everything Silver springs Holiday Inn Express, your efforts are noticed and appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim101 Excellent Service, Warm and Friendly Staff, Great Room
Our room was as described and spotlessly clean. My husband took ill during our stay and the staff went out of their way to be sure we had what we needed. The Front Desk also honoured our initial rate without question when it was necessary for us to extend on a Saturday night due to his illness. Thank you for making a few difficult days seem like a walk in the park.

My partner and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express near Silver Springs State Park after a short camping expeirence; and let me tell you, we loved it! We ended up staying an extra night! The lovely front desk staff on Thu night were kind and personable, our room was great, breakfast was good and they even found and stored my lucky hiking hat in the back room after I left it at the pool area; though when I asked the Sat morning front staff if the hotel had a lost and found and if they found my hat, they looked at me with a strange judgemental look... I guess there's always something that ends up bugging me. The front manager was very helpful and curtious but seemed stressed.
Thanks, all! You got my vote!

The only negative comments to make is that the evening night manager seemed unprofessional while taking a phone call during our check in. Additionally, our carpet was damp.

"Stayed at this property for 1 night. As a platinum elite member, I was happy that the hotel upgraded me to a spa suite from a standard room upon check-in. Furthermore, I was given a goodie bag with some really good cookies! Check-in was a breeze and the front desk clerk was pretty helpful as to what was in the area. Chose to go kayaking at Silver Springs State Park and it was a very cool unique experience. The hotel is near a "Tilted Kilt" and "Walmart" which makes for easy pickups if need be. Great place to stay and a great value."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MKJMarker Silver Springs State Park Trip Stay
The Silver Springs Holiday Inn Express seemed like by far the nicest hotel to stay in near to the park. The room and hotel was up to uniform, high standards as expected due to my stays at other Holiday Inn Express'. We had a snafu when we tried to check in late and were given a room that wasn't made up. The hotel staff quickly made up for it by giving us a different room with a hot tub and suite upgrade. The suite room looked like it was missing one of the dressers and a TV, but there was a TV by the bed instead. Overall, it was spacious and I appreciated it coming with a small fridge #no freezer# and microwave, because I tote some of my own meals when I travel. We enjoyed the park even though it rained as you can take the glass bottom boats #must-see if you don't kayak or canoe the springs yourself# and stay dry. We also hiked a combined 8 miles of trails in the park, which were well-marked and enjoyable. Breakfast at the hotel was good and well-taken care-of. Wish there was more fruit - they only had bananas. Lots of breads, cereal, oatmeal, pastries, coffee, and even an automated pancake machine, which I've never seen. Scares me. I didn't try it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerseyshoresnowbirds A goodie!
We have stayed here quite a few times.We love the cleanliness of the entire hotel and the friendly staff. The free breakfast was ok before, but seems to have kicked it up a bit. Really allot of nice choices and can please even the pickiest of eaters. Resturants are all around ,as besides the free breakfast they do not serve food. We found, Prontos Pizza right down the street was amazing. The food quality was excellent. The combo of the room and Prontos was hard to beat.We will be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Weary95 The room was fine, but the bed was horrible
The mattress was horrible. The only word I can use to describe it is "broken." The middle of the bed was like a mushy sinkhole, and the rest of it was hard and unyielding, more like box springs. It was late or I would have asked to change rooms.
The room itself was nice, and the hotel was good, but the bed was unquestionably the worst I've ever slept on, and isn't sleeping the main purpose of a hotel?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by desmoman900 One of the best Holiday Inns I have ever stayed
I booked a room for a 2 day classic motorcycle group event and I was impressed from the get go with the front desk staff, always willing to help with a smile. The room surpassed my expectations with a tall, ultra comfortable king bed. We slept like kings! Tasty breakfast featuring fresh pancakes instead of the dreadful waffles. Fruits, yogurts, and even green tea that my wife loves so much.
Located right next to the Ocala Nat'l Forest so ask for a 3rd floor room looking south. Great scenery!

First time in Ocala, Holiday Inn Express may be the best hotel they had in this town. I was very pleased with the service we reserved a King Jacuzzi Suite, the rooms were huge very spacious with a pull out couch. The beds were very comfortable, we never made it down to breakfast due to how comfortable the beds were we just wanted that extra hour to sleep... We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by greenphantom61 Clean rooms with nice garden tub
I'd have given everything a 5 but the A/C in our room sounded like a plane taking off every time it came on. Blew cold air, just a bit noisy. The garden tub was nice (do wish it had more jets than the 4 it had) Breakfast bar was delicious, friendly staff. We didn't complain about the A/C as it was late upon our arrival and really not worth the hassle since we were only there for a night.

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!
