I read reviews on TripAdvisor before I booked. I was a little concerned because it was a good price and I thought it would be run down, dirty, etc. It is an older hotel but they have done a good job of keeping it clean and updated. As a bonus all employees were very nice and asked if we were...

"A Good Value," is what Douglas M, Our Dear Guest, discovered when he ventured to come to the Howard Johnson Inn of Ocala. He was concerned because the price was "good," seemingly too good to be true for a decent or "clean and updated" motel. Douglas M discovered first hand that the Howard Johnson Inn of Ocala have owners who...

Staff friendly and the unit was clean, a little noisy on front sidewalk and interstate 75 until about 1 AM. I will stay again.

I have not stayed at a Howard Johnsons in many years and this far exceeded my expectations.

This is a great place to stay traveling through. It is clean, well kept, and quiet. Yes, you'll get some highway noise, but all other aspects make it work the visit. Breakfast is good and very reasonably priced, but the free breakfast is fine too. Traveling thru is a nice break.

I have stayed here several time while attending the state fire college. It has always been clean, bug free cheap hotel. The staff is always nice, and Zaida Maldonado in the restaurant takes very good care of her patrons.
