“Wonderful mini-suite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2005

We stayed for 4 nights in January 2005 and loved this place. It has the best room arrangement (king room) we've ever seen, with the partially separated living area containing sofa, easy chair and ottoman, desk, kitchenette. And best of all the TV is on a wheeled stand so you can move it between the bedroom and living room areas to suite your needs. The buffet breakfast had a good selection including sausage patties, eggs, waffles, bagels, muffins, bread, cereal, sweet rolls, peanut butter, bananas, and apples. But we did have trouble getting plain unflavored tea. And the weekend staff needed some prompting to refill items. The location is good with restaurants and movies close by. You could even walk to them if you want to across vast parking lots (surburban sprawl). This is a great value for the price and we will seek out this chain in our future travels.

I disagree with the reviews below. We stayed there last week and the quality of this hotel is very hit or miss. It makes a good first impression. Then you get to your room. Crummy stained thin foam mattresses and box springs on the bed. Our sheets were stained the first night (we got them changed). The housekeeping is hit or miss, lots of dust, dirty coffee mugs, that kind of thing. The breakfast is so-so. Some days you have plates, some days you have napkins. It depended on who was doing the refreshing.

On the plus side, I found the front desk to be very friendly. The pool was nice.

I was very disappointed overall. The SpringHill Suites in Tampa is excellent (I posted a review last year) and I chose this hotel expecting the same quality. I found out it's managed by the same company that manages the Jacksonville Amerisuites. Amerisuites by and large are to be avoided and it's too bad they're bringing that quality to the Jacksonville SpringHill suites.

I stayed at the Springhill Suites for 4 nights in Feb. '04 and I was impressed with the location, quality and service of the property. It was within walking distance of many restaurants; TGI Fridays, Jacksonville Alehouse, Jason's Deli, McDonalds as well as a few more.
There is also a movie theater and shops close by the hotel.

The area of Jacksonville that the hotel was located in was nice and seemed like a good suburban neighborhood but about 10 blocks away the neighborhood seemed to get a little rougher.

The hotel has a free breakfast every morning, which included waffles, toast, danishes, cereal, juice, milk, and coffee. On Tuesday there was a free managers reception with bottled beer, and h'orderves from a local restaurant. My room was roomy and included a kitchen area with a microwave, refrigerator and sink. In the sitting area there was a desk, loveseat and a reading chair. My room was also quiet. The only noise I heard a couple of nights was the trash truck outside making its rounds.
I paid $69/night plus tax. I thought the room was an exceptional value for the price. My only complaint was the rude front desk girl named Bridgett, but all of the other staff was very friendly.

This hotel was a great place to stay. Seems to be fairly new, is up kept and in very nice neighborhood. Had no problems with the staff, very friendly. Stay here if you plan to stay in Jacksonville.
