Good value for the money for a beachfront hotel; particularly using the government rate. Location and staff is excellent but the upkeep and cleanliness of the room could be better. Breakfast is adequate but nothing to brag about. Very close to the beach.

The location was optimal with views of a pristine beach. There were restaurants, bars, and stores all within walking distance. The desk staff was very helpful with directions and guest requests. However, the room was filthy, even including a two inch live cockroach. This place reminded me of my college days when I couldn't afford a decent vacation hotel, but... More

We stayed here four nights after searching every hotel in the area for the best deal. I insisted we get an ocean view room, which I was willing to pay a little extra for, and I'm so glad we did because nothing beats watching the sun rise over the ocean and pier from the tiny little balcony. Word of advice... More

It is an older hotel with some patched ceilings in the rooms, located on the beach and accessible to many restaurants and bars. However, the bathrooms were spotless, the linen was nice and white and the halls smelled fresh. The balconies are small, but there is direct access to the beach just a few feet away. THERE ARE ONLY 16... More

The hotel was nice, clean and spacious. The attendant at the front desk was very helpful and courteous as well. The location was great and the price was good. I have no complaints except the dining area was a bit small. Other then that all was great!

Stayed in Jax beach at the start of August. Stayed in two different hotels, this being the second. Had absolutely no problems with this hotel. The staff were so friendly and did everything we asked of them. Even baked us cookies for when we came in from a night out!! The location is perfect for Jax beach and the beach... More

Very nice facility. I loved the ocean front room. I recommend and will stay here again. The staff was excellent and very attentive. It is a great hotel for any type of trip. You are only steps from the beach and entertainment.

Clean hotel and nice for the price. Close to the shops and plenty of places to eat. Jacksonville beach has been doing a lot to make the are nicer and it shows. I had the pleasure of an ocean front room and it was an amazing view! Nothing like waking up to a view of the ocean.

Having crossed the country staying at Best Westerns over the past month I find that most are quite wonderful and are certainly all adequate. The only usual differences are the amenities provided and usually those are in the breakfast item selections. At this hotel, besides the waffles which are pretty much a standard staple, there were no other hot choices... More
