Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomMary Great location, good price, beds the best!
Wanted to visit The Villages and this was a perfect location. Very short and safe walk to Town Square. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast Really good, liked having bold coffee. Great value for the price. Would definately recommend to friends. Only problem was ice machine on 3rd floor not working and was told it had been broken for a week.

If you are in the area, this is the best motel with great people. We stayed there last year and again this year. We will stay a couple of days more on our way back home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dickscar2 Wonderful hotel!!
We have been so pleased each time we've stayed at this hotel. The staff are so friendly and so accomodating, and go out of their way to be helpful. We arrived early and stopped by just to see how long the wait would be. They arranged for us to have the room in an hour, and suggested several places where we could get lunch nearby while we waited. We had made a late reservation and they were able to give us exactly what we wanted. The location is also great with a traffic light right at the entrance to 441 and it is on The Villages property for great access to their shopping. We would highly recommend this'd for your stay in the Ocala area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ladydechi Night at the Holiday Express
My husband and I went to the Villager's in Florida to visit friends and stayed at the Holiday Express. We found it to be clean, cozy, thought the staff was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast in the morning was great, a variety of choices, and all very good. Over all, we were happy with our experience there!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Soccer5 Upgraded next to laundry room!
We have visited our parents in The Villages for past 15 years and have stayed in this hotel, sometimes for a week at a time.
Before arriving, we received a call that we had been upgraded from our two bed room, to a king with pull out sofa, supposedly, a bigger room since we have a 13 year old daughter and 15 year old son!
Upon arriving we find our room did not have a secure lock, which I broke into with a credit card! Secondly, we were awoken every morning with the sounds of washer/dryer adjacent to the room!
Manager was kind enough to give us 1,000 reward point and $50 off the bill, which in my opinion is not enough for moving us, supposedly to a "better" room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STLBG Mutiple Stays; All Super!
We made our tenth and eleventh visits to HI Express-The Villages Christmas Week of 2013 (three nights and two nights w/ one night away for business in Miami the day after Christmas). We could not wait to return after a miserable night in Miami.
We do not return without reason. You cannot beat this hotel in that general region though I have regrettably tried on a few occasions to save a few $$$. Those were our loss and disappointments. I will always look forward to staying at this hotel when visiting my elderly mother.
Over the years the place has only improved (somehow) in all aspects. The staff and management are genuinely devoted to the satisfaction of their clientele and the facility has constantly been upgraded as years have passed.
With three small children the only possible suggestion for improvement I can come up with would be to add an indoor pool because contrary to rumor it is not always sunny and warm in Florida. In fact it has been cloudy, rainy and nasty during our last six winter visits. As result my children ages 4 to 6 have never been in the pool. None the less they look forward to the food and staying in the suites.

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years and it only gets better with each stay. I am a senior citizen with three very small children and needless to say my family is high maintenance. The cheery staff however seems to oblige every unusual request. I have tried other hotels in Leesburg and Ocala when visiting my elderly parents but this is the ONLY place to stay in THE VILLAGES.
I did have trouble filling-out this review form with sliding ratings almost rated everything one star!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gloria3435 Bad experience
We had been to this facility twice before and had had a comfortable stay. This time after having made our reservations 6 months in advance the room we reserved was not available on our arrival and they said we could have it the next night. The next night it was not available. When it was not available on the third night we left as we felt that the room would never be available as it was an expensive suite that they wanted to rent at the higher price even though they had guaranteed us the room and rate 6 months earlier.
Beware of this hotel and what they promise you.

I have stayed at this motel a number of times, and each time is a most pleasant experience. I have also found the people who take care of the rooms are some of the best. My only regret is that I have to make the trip back home.

I've been to several Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express properties, and this is one of the better ones. The rooms were clean, the halls stayed quiet, and it was easy to get in and out. Breakfast was better than average. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the Villages.

Stayed here for weekend while checking out The Villages. Staff was helpful and very accommodating. Rooms were clean and
bed and pillows were very comfy. Hubby & I only had coffee in the mornings, but I will say they had a nice enough selection of breakfast items to choose from.

My husband and I stayed at this location on our way to Southern Florida. We love this hotel and stop frequently on our way. We can always count on great service and a clean and comfortable room. The employees at the desk are always friendly and helpful. We can walk to the Spanish Springs square in the Villages, enjoy the entertainment, and head out the next morning.

We sold our home in The Villages and intend to rent there in the winter. Before leaving, we stayed three nights in the Holiday Inn near Chili's Restaurant and had a wonderful experience. The manager, Dave, and his staff went out of their way to make our visit a memorable one. When we return in February, the Holiday Inn is at the top of our list of places to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nygeno59 What's that smell?
Room had a constant musty odor. Alarm clock from the 1980's. Chair / desk mismatched: chair too low for desk which made for very uncomfortable computer work. Tub drains so slow that there was several inches of water by the end of my shower. I've definitely stayed at better HI's.
