“Outstanding Employees and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

The physical hotel was wonderful, especially the beds AND the morning breakfasts; however it was the staff that set it apart. We were there for medical reasons but have stayed there in the past due to location in visiting relatives and of course, being close to the beach restaurants was very appealing. My husband and I were so impressed by JOSH HODGE, front desk manager who did everything I need from keeping frozen ice packs in their freezer (I would ask for them 3 x per day and then return them to put in their freezer again) that my husband needed recovering from surgery to giving me the easiest and clearest directions to that hugh mall, St JOhns Town Center. Josh is certainly an asset to this nice, clean hotel. We are returning in Sept. and will return other times. We look forward to seeing Josh each time but I have an idea he may go up in management and we would be proud for him. Also, JEREMY(dont' recall last name) was very helpful and he helped with ice packs. Also, another man(don't know name) who was taller and wore glasses who worked at front desk was nice and helpful. All employees that had interaction with us were polite. The GM was also nice but we didn't meet him until the end of our stay. Clean.......friendly.......and LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Room Tip: Ground floor is great if you have any health issues and you are close to front desk and breakfast.

Out of our 15 day, 10 State motorcycle trip this was far and above the best place we stayed. I had no idea what to expect. The was an amazing clean modern comfortable place to stay. Very close to the beach and great restaurants around. Very very good breakfast too.

This is a newer property, very clean and well kept up. Even though it is a busy hotel with people constantly around, the lobby areas were always clean. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast area was well stocked and the food smelled delicious. This HIE added the extra touch of having "real" plates and cups at breakfast, rather than just paper and plastic serveware. Sometimes the small things make a difference. I would certainly stay here again.

I have stayed at a lot of Holiday Inns and this is the best one ever! It is a few blocks from the beach but is perfect. It is a newer hotel and kept spotlessly clean. I have stayed at 4 Holiday inns in jacksonville and this is the nicest and closest to the beaches. The desk staff were not very friendly, but reasonably nice.

Room Tip: The kids suite is very neat if you have kids!

Dear General Manager,

I want to say thank you to you and your very attentive and customer savvy staff for accomodating my family and I this past weekend. We traveled from NC and had a wonderful first impression of Jax Beach. Special thanks go to Megan for her friendly and caring attidude as well as her above and beyond customer service. Special thanks also go to Shawn and Mike for helping to make our stay a happy and memorable one. This experience makes me proud to be a part of the IHG family as I am an AGM of a Holiday Inn Express & Suites in NC. This was our first stay with you and plan to return many more times in the future!

Best Regards,

S. Smith

Friendly staff upon arrival and throughout our stay, except for one lady who seemed to be the GM or DOS and ignored us when we approached her. I won't let that one person change how I felt about the rest of our stay however. The rooms were very nice, updated, and clean. Great location near shops and restaurants and just minutes from the beach. If you stay here TacoLu's is a must. Great restaurant with fresh food and delicious margaritas and about a 2 minute walk from the hotel.

Michele,

Thanks for your input regarding your stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed everything. We're still trying to figure out who may have ignored you. We have no DOS and our GM is a guy....but regardless, we will still try to figure it out so nothing like this could happen. We hope to see you again soon and we'll probably cross paths at TacoLu as it's definitely one of our favorites as well! Happy travels!

I stayed at this hotel for a guys weekend away, and the hotel was very nice. Staff was attentive and was very helpful. Breakfast was nice, only a few minutes from the beach. Near restaurants and grocery store. Only downfall might be the pool...not very big. But who needs a pool when your minutes from the beach!!!
