The place has wonderful view of the beach and the cost was just at 220.00 dollars. We check in for a reasonable room rate of 180.00 then local taxes of 25.0 dollars. HOWEVER they have got to stop nickel and dime the customers. We paid 7 dollars for water in the room and coffee in the morning was not free.... More

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful! In the living room area of the room the view was partially blocked by the pool bar roof. But the bedroom portion of the room had 4 long windows with the most amazing view of the ocean! Every morning of the trip we were able to lay in bed and watch the sun rise. Pool area was... More

We enjoy this clean hotel on the Beach. I would recommend the beach front view. On Saturday mornings in the hotel lobby Mrs. Gwen has exotic seashells and other ocean amenities with a story behind each one. You can make your own hot glued creations out of the shells. We've done this twice its a huge hit with the kids... More

We really enjoyed staying here. It is a great location and so, so close to the beach. We stayed for six days so we had plenty of time to observe the inner workings of the hotel. They have a restaurant located in the main lobby, which is very good for breakfast. They also have a coffee area where you can... More

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times over four years, and twice in April. If you are going to visit a student at UNF there is a special rate. It's worth a little extra to stay on the beach and pretend you are on vacation when you are perhaps just going to a concert or a game.... More

Three night visit with mom, excellent service, clean!! Great view of water and pool. Often pictures look way better than reality, but this hotel lived up to the pictures! The pool and spa were spotless, and there was even a lift for handicapped access ( not that my 82 y/o mom thought she needed it). Food and drink was very... More

It was very pleasant experience that I have a sell craft on Saturday morning. It feels like a special gift for the travel. I and my daughter enjoyed it with Ms. Gwen. She was very nice and we took some pictures with her. We made Three shell crafts and my daughter loves them. I thanks to Mr. Gwen a lot

Can't count on the Marriott brand when booking hotel rooms any longer. This is my third Marriott stay in recent weekend adventures and each experience has been a little worse than the next. We have come to this area on many other occasions and stayed with One Ocean. They were sold out so we went with Marriott thinking that it... More

Very nice hotel, only thing I didn't like it doesn't have room service. Many times we enjoy a relaxing morning with ordering room service as part of the plan. Other than that it was very nice. Very clean comfortable bed.
