“short trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

booked a free night on short notice. Briefly waited after arriving, were upgraded to suite on bottom floor. Nice room, smelled a little much like airfreshner. The front desk was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was fully stocked and fresh. Enjoyed the beach in AM due to downpours the day before, just one block over.

This is our second stay at this location, and will most certainly be out last. Aside from the tiny ants all over the bathroom and window sills, the gross tiny pool with floaters in it each time we attempted to use it, my biggest complaint is the staff. They seem friendly enough when you pass in the halls and walk through the lobby, but wait until there is a problem. My experience was that no one wants to own the problem, but instead point fingers and shirk responsibility. In our case, my one year olds swim suit was taken from the room three nights before our departure. Each time I asked if it had been found, I was told told that they were behind on laundry and nothing had been looked through. Not only did I have to purchase a new suit, but when they finally found it (I left my contact information, but was never notified it had been found until I called two weeks later to ask about it.) they sent it FedEx overnight, at a cost of $23 to me. This was after I specifically requested they send it standard speed, and was not going to approve a $20 charge for a $15 suit. After three separate people at the hotel confirmed that they knew full well the package would be sent overnight, and therefore the charge would be over $20 and still sent it, I feel that the charge was fraudulent and I will be disputing it.

Rooms are good sized. Free breakfast is varied and filling. Staff is friendly and efficient. Location is right off beach and close to restaurants. Hotel is very clean. Next door to a Courtyard if you want a bar on the ocean. Small swimming pool for children.

Nice, clean hotel with continental breakfast included. $40 per night cheaper than hotel across the street. Not on the beach but a very short walk to a beautiful, clean beach with nice sand for running and walking on.

Pleasantly surprised by the room layout of this hotel. We stayed in a king suite during Memorial Day 2013.

**PROS:
-Across street from beach, unless you absolutely HAVE to be beachfront this hotel should be your next choice.

-Continental breakfast was good. they served eggs, sausage, muffins, cereal, juice, bagels, etc..the blueberry muffins were very good.

-Room was spacious and the bathroom was totally separate from the "bedroom" and was a good size. It was kind of like a small 1 bdrm apartment minus the kitchen. But the mini-fridge did come in handy.

** CONS:
==I dont really have any cons, only thing that could have been better was the elevator wait. There was only one elevator that the guests and workers share. At times, (usually around check-in time) the wait was few minutes. Seems like maybe there should be a separate service elevator.

== One day our room wasn't cleaned by the time we returned around 3pm, after calling the front desk the person was nice and apologized and said sometimes they clean the rooms for new guests first. But someone was there within 5 minutes, so it wasnt really an issue.

== Hotel is a few blocks from the main bars/restaurants near Beach Blvd, I wouldnt suggest trying to walk there unless you are a walker and have the right shoes (I'm not,lol). There is free parking along 4th Av .

After two weeks of travel and vacation we needed one last stop before returning home. We choose this hotel because when I called I was told it was right on the beach, it is not. Its close like across the street and behind another hotel. Other than that everything was good. The breakfast was the traditional hotel style continental with paper plates and boiled eggs but again okay. The staff was very nice and helpful. The only real complain is they need automatic door openers. After two weeks of vacation we have 12 bags, trying to roll them into the hotel on the cart they provide was hard enough, to try and open two sets of doors while doing so was, well let’s say difficult.

Room Tip: If you’re going to Jacksonville beach for a vacation you might want to look elsewhere. The beach wa...
