The Shamrock Historic Inn is definitely a trip back to the 50's. I remember motels like this when I was very young in the 50's. The innkeepers are most helpful , friendly and eager to please. The plants are beautiful, and you definitely get the feeling of Old Florida. The price is old fashioned too and this makes it perfect...

I do like tchotchkes, which is why I found this to be a charming place to stay. An older motor hotel from the pre-Interstate era on U.S. Route 301 in downtown Ocala, it has been extensively renovated and modernized by the current owners. Only 12 rooms, that are tiny but very comfortable. And filled with decorative knick-knacks (or tchotchkes). Because...

A lot of thought, effort and love went into renovating and decorating this cute motel. It is full of decorations, and the owners are very friendly, even when we arrived late after being stuck in Miami traffic. The rooms are on the small side, but very clean and there was enough space to store our mountain bikes. The location is...

We were a little disappointed with the size of our room, and the comfort of the bed. The location was great, easy to find but on a very busy street (lots of truck traffic). Walking distance to Downtown Ocala, unfortunately, we weren't able to eat at the recommended restaurant because of the over an hour wait.

As stated on our listing here on trip advisor as well as our website, shamrockhistoricinn.com and all booking sites, we are a quaint cozy Vintage Inn, which indicates smaller than normal, which many of our guests are looking for charm, cleanliness, and overall comfort, which is what we provide. As far as the comfort of your bed, I must say...

While checking for hotels in Ocala area, came across an old, very small, motel with numerous 5 Star Ratings --- curious, we decide to try it --- could not have been more pleasantly surprised or satisfied --- room was excellently furnished more like a bed and breakfast than a motel and better than major hotel chains, bed was very comfortable,...

Have you ever stayed in a friends guest room? The kind of room where a lot of care and forethought went into the decoration and comfort of the space? That's exactly what I got in room four at the Shamrock Inn. Comfortable bed, fun decor and a good nights sleep. I will be back.
