Very kind front desk staff (I assume they are the owners), helpful when I needed ice, courteous, also they got some convenience store item sold in lobby, like sodas, beers, gift packages, snacks so we had everything what we possibly wanted. Right off i75, although being modest place (and priced as such) we got a very relaxing stay. I would...

I booked a room at Hotwire and they randomly picked Golden Palms for my motel choice which I didn't see until I booked it.. Long story short they rooms are dirty disgusting outdated cheap and they are scammers and been doing this for a long time

We were driving from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale. Around Midnight we were exhausted and decided to stop in Gainesville. Unfortunately, not a single room was available. Everyone told us Golden Palms had rooms. So we called and were told they would have a room. Arrived a little after 2am and stood in line to check in (this was literally the...

Worst place ever. We were quoted over the phone $100 and when we checked in 20 minutes later the price was jacked up to $150 because all the hotels were booked in the area. Price on all websites were anywhere from $50-$100 for it. When it was brought to their attention they basically said "that's just how it is". Place...

The staff was very nice at check in... Ill give them that. From there we grabbed our bags and headed up the stairs to our courtyard side room. As we looked at pool, it had floating scum all over it. Gross! Oh well, just needed a place to crash for night on drive down to Ft. Myers. Room was clean,...

Rude, dismissive staff...dreary, dank hotel. Dirty, hot rooms...cement-like beds! If I hadn't already reserved my room & paid online I wouldn't stay here one more second. Dirty, soap scummy shower...brownish towels. Rust, grime, any other distasteful adjective you can think of. Just awful!

This was better than some reviews by far. Pretty lobby with lovely mosaics in floor, friendly efficient check in, easy location from I75, nice grounds, clean pool area, but too cold and with a rotted closed deck area beyond a closed pool bar, but the pool area was fine with decent and ample outdoor furniture. Spacious courtyard with cool neo...

The rooms were extremely clean, the hotel grounds were beautiful, and the staff was lovely. I was traveling through Ocala, and found this place at a good price. When I got here, everyone was very helpful and I was quite pleased with my stay. They have a beautiful pool, and well decorated, maintained grounds. The people were absolutely lovely. Perfect...

Good hotel, right off of I-75 in Ocala, which makes it convenient to everything. Slow computer in the lobby, but that's OK. Coffee in the lobby, but no breakfast. Good maid service. Rooms in good condition.

Thank Barry S
