A RUBY RED ROOF Absolutely, the Ocala Red Roof is the jewel in the Chain of Red Roofs – the RUBY – and is worthy of a rating for a vacation stay, not simply as a clean place to sleep overnight for the travelers. We had planned on staying at a Red Roof in Jacksonville, but when we realized we’d be checking in too early on our 2nd day of driving south – we drove on to Ocola in the hope there would be a room for us. From the moment we checked in with Lisa, I sensed this would be a good experience. I explained we have a very nervous cat, and so we were hoping to have a room close to the door. Room 129 was at the side entrance; the touch-key door to the room opened to a Red Roof room such as one we have never seen before. Light, bright, immaculate with a new fresh look in bed linen. Imagine pillows such as one might have at home along with light-weight comforters! A dream? No, this was real. Imagine snowy white thick towels in the good-sized bathroom. Again – the real thing. High ceilings gave the sense of being in a large space. There is an outdoor pool that can be enjoyed by families and is surrounded by hedges that block the view of the parking lot. Nice! This Red Roof does not serve breakfast, but who really loves the usual offerings? My husband picked up some breakfast at La Hacienda, an authentic Mexican restaurant just a few walking steps from the inn. Fabulous pastries! The Inn does have a dedicated room where coffee is available and where one can enjoy any meal that is brought in by the guests. Fast forward to the next morning. We stay at Red Roof Inns because most have platform beds that make it difficult, but not impossible, for a cat to get under the bed when it’s time to get back in the car. After discovering an opening, we piled suitcases in front . OK, we’ve taken these beds apart in the past, but Rina was not under either bed. We checked all the places a cat might think of. Did she slip out of the room? We walked all around the property – even asked the black stray cat if he had seen an orange kitty. We checked with all the dog walkers. Although the cat wears a collar with a tag indicating she is traveling and lists a phone number, we were frantic. Jim, at the front desk, was checking the cameras. When I spoke with the women in the laundry area, they called Javier who immediately assured me he knows where our cat is hiding. Sure enough! Rina is not the first cat who discovered this tiny shelf under the sink cabinet. Javier called for help since it is difficult to convince a cat it’s time to get back in the car. He and Alex were our heroes. A beautiful inn! Beautiful inn-keepers - All!

Had an overnight stay in Ocala. Airport lost my luggage. Uber driver got lost. Was one of my worst trips ever. Arrived at the Red Roof Inn and was not in the best mood. Then I met the woman working at the front lobby. Sammi was very welcoming & was able to check me in slightly earlier than check in time. She checked me in and made sure I had everything I needed. Her customer service was beyond compare. She knew the area and recommended a great place for dinner. Her kindness literally turned my trip around. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Best of the best!!

I just stayed there over a week ago, we checked in a little bit later than expected. The front desk receptionist, Sammi, was such a delight. She made us feel comfortable & welcome. We did not mention having a dog with us in our reservation but she set us up perfectly in the end. Loved her & loved staying here! Sammi made sure our AC was on and that we were close to a side door per our request. Hotel was very clean and quiet. Will definitely stay here again!

Best for the value. Like new!

Superior stay. Believe the reviews. I paid extra for the room with a jacuzzi. Was just the thing after 4 days of driving. Great front desk help. Pet friendly, so please don't abuse their policy by leaving your dog unattended or not picking up after your dog. If you look for a place a few bucks less, you'll be sorry.

Another great stay

We arrived after the Dorian warning was lifted to attend a horse show. There was a lot of confusion over reservations because of this. The front desk clerk, Sam I believe was her name, helped us figure everything out and book another room. She had a great personality and we joked and laughed as we figured stuff out. Employees like her are a treasure. The room was great, comfy and clean. Horse show hours are weird so we were napping during cleaning time so our room wasn't cleaned one day but the housekeeper was super nice and brought us extra towels to get through until the next day. Overall we enjoy staying here every time we show in Ocala, and will continue to do so.
