“Loved it!! Will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

Perfect little get away! Coming across from Tampa just to get a break, this was a great choice! The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Great little bar right there at the pool, right on the beach. Staff is very polite and helpful. We had a really great relaxing time, and will definately be back!

Simple and clean. Nothing special. Thought it should be nicer given the fact its a Marriott. No room service. Some bugs here and there. Pool is small and overcrowded. Pool bar is probably the best thing it has going for it.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the weekend of July 31st. The beach was undergoing restoration. While this is not the hotel's fault, it did not make the stay an enjoyable one as the trucks worked right in front of the hotel all day and ALL NIGHT. BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, . . got a little old trying to sleep or relax. My husband was able to fall asleep, but I was up most of the night as the sound of the trucks grated my nerves. My two primary issues with the hotel were the staff and the size of the pool. I'll address the pool first. On a good day, with the beach open, this pool is small for the size of the hotel. They do have a nice tiki bar, however, it's just too crowded to really enjoy. If you are not traveling with small children, it's hard to find a place around the pool to get away from them. Regarding the staff, they were unfriendly and unaccomodating. As elite members, we are supposed to be allowed a late checkout. When we inquired about one, we were told "NO". My husband said, "not even for an elite member" and the reply was "NO". Maybe not a big deal to most but it is a perk that we enjoy and have never had an issue with a late checkout before. As far as the grounds and our room, they were very clean and well taken care of. As we were walking out to the pool, we noticed the lobby of the hotel had several tables set up and some guests were playing board games. As for a return visit to this location, I don't see one in our future, unless we had to return for business. It would definately not be for pleasure.

I stayed here for two weeks during a business trip and found the hotel to be beautiful and well maintained. I stayed in a room with an ocean-view balcony and the view was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet they offer was a wonderful way to start the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying in Jacksonville Beach.

We came to Jacksonville for a swim meet and decided to stay on the beach ,even though it was a bit of a drive from swim venue. The hotel was very nice and front desk people friendly & helpful. The beach area is lovely. They have a nice pool & a fire area to gather round in evening. We stayed in one bedroom suit, which was spacious and roomy. The hotel is not too far from restaurants. The large Jacksonville Mall /restaurant area not too far of a drive either, if you get back on highway.

Awesome location, great staff, and excellent service. The view from the oceanfront balcony is wonderful. Great pool and tiki bar with drink specials. Love the chairs by the firepit. Plenty of parking and hotel is within walking places of shops and entertainment.

Room Tip: Stay in a oceanfront Jr Suite!

Our family stayed four nights Jacksonville Beach for some R and R and it was great! Service is fantastic and friendly! Pool was nice and clean, beach was great too! Breakfast buffet was included in our rate and the selection was good. We walked into town several times for dinner and shopping. We also walked to the pier and watched the fishing. A number of the fisherman were friendly and willing to tell their stories. We will definitely return!
