Pax bought the 152-room Quality Inn in Ocala towards the end of 2018 and immediately dropped the “flag,” opting to go independent. Since then, the Equus has gone from # 13 to # 4 out of 39 hotels in the market even while construction is being completed just now.  Investors have so far received average cash yields of 4% through renovations and a pandemic. Pax expects to deliver cash yields of nearly twice that going forward as this innovatively designed hotel is a heavy favorite to be the third Pax Property to win Trip Advisor’s top award.
