“Ups and Downs Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Construction around hotel made it difficult to find. GPS could not find and Google maps directions indicated taking an interstate exit that did not exist. After arriving stay was wonderful and worth the trip there. Final impression was a lack of coordination for a shuttle to transport our group after check out. Staff to be complimented as they used their own vehicles to resolve the issue.

I stayed for a week in Feb first week and I still miss the breakfast which I used to have there... best breakfast, nice and cozy rooms, good staff, near to downtown and near to the Skyway which runs around downtown.

But then, I moved to Homewood Town Center after a week.. just because of its location and stayed there for a month.. Though it was near to town center but it was quite and had free parking ($7/day in Downtown).. these are the major plus..

In Downtown one, major plus was better room size, bigger closet, balcony (was not in Town Center one)..
We like the food and service better in Down town... though Town center was also good..

So, I recommend for short and business trip go for Downtown one.. and if you are family, want to go for dinning, shopping, roam around Homewood town center is the best place for you...

Special thanks to Mersida(front desk lady).. she was so helping and made my stay even better..

Room Tip: I got road facing.. it was nice..

This is the place! Stay HERE! The location is close to many area attractions and the airport is just a few miles away. The staff makes sure that ALL of your needs are met (I have severe allergies). VERY clean! HUGE ROOMS and VERY comfortable beds! Kitchen includes everything you might need to prepare and serve food including a full sized refrigerator. OH, and bring a pool cue, there is a table in the lobby. ENJOY!

We stayed one night here on March 29 on our way further south. I chose it based on the high TripAdvisor ratings.

It was a nice, newer hotel. Parking is in a deck just steps away from the door. Our room was what we expect at a Homewood Suites. Breakfast wasn't bad, but I've had better at other hotels. Our room was clean and comfortable.

The only reason I wouldn't stay here again was the train! Unbeknownst to us, there were train tracks a few blocks away on our side of the building. Around 3 am, my husband and I woke up to the train horn blowing, then we stayed awake listening to the train roll by. Not cool after a 7 hour drive the day before and knowing we had hours to go the next day. The hotel really needs to better insulate these windows/somehow figure out how to mitigate this very dramatic overnight noise.

Totally enjoyed our stay in Jacksonville at the Homewood Suites. Although it was a quick stay on our way to the Florida Keys it was an excellent hotel. Very clean and comfortable accommodations for our family. The complimentary breakfast was a wonderful start to our day.

I was surprised they even allow smoking but they do - and the entire 4th floor pretty much smells like smoke. I'm not sure I would use this hotel again. They also had a main water leak and the lounge area was closed. The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms that did not smell were fine - but you should beware of the possibility that they may try to put you in a smoking room. I was able to change it for one of my rooms - but should never have had that headache.

Room Tip: If you don't like the smell of smoke - don't stay on the 4th floor and confirm you are in a...

I have combined a business and leisure in a one week stay in this hotel. Everything is good for both business and/or good time... Lot of amenities available and good service. Breakfast and Manager reception are excellent. Parking convenient. Staff very helpful. Only negative point is the noise from the outside (Train + interstate close) with the lack of insulation of the bedroom windows that I got. Don't forget your ear-plugs ...
