Stayed here for 1 night visiting my son in Atlantic Beach for his birthday....just a few miles up the road....had dinner up that way & there were tons of dining options but it was PACKED on a Saturday evening! It is the place to go!
The view from the hotel lobby is just stunning.
After a tease with the lobby view, went up to our room--can't remember the floor but it was low & had a balcony & could see nothing but the rooftop....I mean nothing and I don't mean to really complain about that because I got a great deal on this hotel & it was clearly stated "no view"....ok, ok....no biggie but hubby said "go ahead & call the desk & just ask if they have something on a higher floor"....the clerk said "sure, no problem, come on down & we will change your room". Gather all our stuff, schlep them to elevator, down to the desk we went....walk into the next room....whoa, parking lot. Guess I made a mistake when I asked for a room on a "higher floor"....should have specified "with a view"....but couldn't he have said "yes, we have a higher floor but it will not have a view"....could have saved us all that "schlepping" after a very long day & only 30 minutes to get ready for son's birthday dinner---- Didn't really matter & the guy probably thought he was being helpful but at the time, it was annoying to us! Guess we were happier with the parking lot view anyways because the "roof" was just a tease cuz you knew the ocean was right there out in front of it!
Prior visit, I stayed at the Fairfield across the street which is just as fine; figured we would try the Courtyard this time for comparison. We were on such a rushed trip, we did not get to enjoy the pool or beach which looked lovely. Walked by the fire pit which looked very nice but there was a large group taking it over & you could not edge our way in for even a sliver of warmth....
Had a very quick breakfast in the morning....standard fare, friendly server....eggs were not very good (powered, I guess?).
I would not hesitate to stay here again; great location; easy free parking, rooms are fine.
