We stayed just one night here on a last minute trip to the Jacksonville area. My priorities were beachfront and clean. This hotel delivered both. Added bonus for me was a Starbucks in the lobby. :) Check in was fast and painless, rooms were very clean, and pillows were great...which is a big deal for me. The only negative I... More

Surprised to see a concierge upon entering the hotel. Great Pool and Patio Area. Right on Jax Beach. Gated access to beach. Secure. Very comfortable bedding. Clean and fairly new hotel. Good proximity to great restaurants and shopping.

Just the facts: On the last night of our 4 night stay, we returned to our room to find our lap top, two I-pads, gifts cards, cash, personal car keys, and head phones gone from our room. One I-Pad was left charging under the phone. All other items were locked in a back pack, placed inside the armoire, behind our... More

This hotel never fails. Elegance and class of Marroitt that you would expect. The outdoor pool and bar right on the beach is great. Also an inside bar that's lovely and social. It is within walking or short driving distance from great local favorites like Meza Luna, North Beach Fish Camp, Flying Iguana, and night life.

The newly renovated rooms are lovely. We had a full view of the ocean,which was delightful. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Courtyard is located off the main road where there are many restaurants and stores. It's only about 35 minutes from St. Augustine and you can drive there along the coast making it a very pleasant drive. We... More

Stayed for a week for a business trip and was not disappointed. The room was spacious and comfortable. I stayed in a Oceanview King and the view was amazing. The room had a refrigerator and microwave, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer, etc. Breakfast is served everyday, it is not included and costs $13.95/person. Currently there is construction on the 2nd...

A real gem of a hotel with a great combination of location, expert staff, and the usual Marriott no surprises. Was able to check in a few hours early and got an Oceanside room that had recently been remolded. Our made-to-order breakfast in the Bistro was served just as ordered and hot. Starbuck's coffee too! This was my third stay... More

This has to be the best Courtyard we have stayed in, hands down. Being MR gold elite, we have stayed in many so far so this is pretty meaningful.
