By choosing a destination situated 80 miles north of Orlando and 45 miles south of Gainesville, guests of our hotels in Ocala position themselves in the middle of everything that North Central Florida has to offer.
Surrounded by equestrian farms, Ocala has earned the title of horse capital of the world; horse lovers staying at our Ocala accommodations can experience the Ocala Greenway Trail System by horseback. Those who prefer higher adventures than a horse can provide can see the same beautiful countryside from the comfortable harness of a zip line, courtesy of The Canyons Zip Line and Canopy Course.
Shoppers who love small boutiques and unusual finds will love the city of Ocala––hotel guests will find everything from antiques and gourmet food to linens and jewelry downtown, and you can shop at many national retailers at the nearby Paddock Mall.
The hardest part about dining out in Ocala is choosing where to go! Visitors have their choice of savory Cuban at Mojo Grill, exotic Thai at Royal Orchid, authentic French at La Cuisine or homey Italian at DanZanos. Sip a glass of wine at The Wine Experience, or pick up a bottle to take back to your hotel from Stella’s Modern Pantry.
