Stop and Stay, experience Old...
Liked: Another review of this property referred to it as eclectic, upon arrival this was clearly the best way to describe the property. Normally we would have skipped a property like this one due to the wide range of care that some of the owners treat their property. This is not a property to skip. The property is reminiscent of the heyday of Florida roadside motels and inns. However the owner of the Shamrock Inn has managed to keep the olden glamour with modern sensibilities. The courtyard, drive is packed with lush green plants which are relaxing and add to the atmosphere. The rooms do have the structure of the older roadside inns, however each one is decorated in its own style and it obvious that the owner has chosen to create a modern link to the past. The plumbing and electrical work are modern and clean. The room has a dedicated USB and plugin charger near the bed with WiFi on the property. The inn is within walking distance or 4 minute drive of the Historic Ocala center and a Starbucks is 2 blocks away on the same side of the street. They are in the process of adjusting their parking layout, but that was not a problem for us. The room also appeared to have an interior door lock designed to be used by hands that can not grasp small objects easily.
Disliked: Our only concern was the single room air conditioner noise. The single room air conditioner is necessary due to the style of the inn allows travelers to breathe air that is not shared with other rooms reducing the spread of COVID-19. Our problem involved the noise when it started when cooling the room at night. We got around this by setting the temperature a few degrees colder than we normally like and when the room was cooled we turned off the air conditioner and turned on the ceiling fan. We slept beautifully on the softest sheets we had ever had in an Inn.

overall I loved it and...
Liked: Loved the rooms, love the uniqueness of it all. loved the out side set up with chairs and canopies. Staff was so very nice! It was like you were in your own cozy world....even though you are right off a main street.
Disliked: The only thing I did not like was the parking.... On check out day...I wanted to go pick up coffee and breakfast and another vehicle had me blocked for 2 hours. Suggestion.... stripe your parking lot so that their are designated parking. I was pretty furious about being blocked in. I understand that one of the reason I loved the place was the outside canopies set up for seating...but the downside of that is the parking situation.

THIS is the place you...
Liked: The garden area outside of each room is so beautiful and the rooms are all themed so it has that very cozy and personal touch
Disliked: You will never find a better staff and a cleaner room! The decor was fantastic and you can really see how much they love their job and their hotel! The owner is beyond sweet and takes pride in this place! The outside is a garden escape you would never guess it was right off the a big Blvd. If you are thinking of going to Ocala, THIS is the place you wanna stay at!

It was comfortable and restful.
Liked: It was charming and welcoming. The owner and staff were helpful and friendly. It was walking distance from the downtown area.
Disliked: A hot water pot in the room to make tea would have been nice, but the hosts were ready and willing to boil me some water each morning ?.
