“Great place for a long-term stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I recently stayed at this hotel for more than a month for business. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The location is kind of strange, but it's close to downtown and close to the San Marco area, so there are a lot of restaurants nearby. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone (front desk, housekeeping, maintenance and food service) was without exception friendly and accommodating. When you're away from home for long periods of time it's nice to be greeted by name when you come back to the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to others and will definitely stay here next time I'm in Jacksonville.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room to avoid hearing trains in the middle of the night.

At an odd location, but very nice. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean. They allow dogs with a $75 fee. The room was only $125 so the pet fee seems high, but we will pay it.

Many high school athletic groups were in the hotel so it was crowded and noisy, but of course it would be.

They had a nice breakfast in the morning. Would sty here again.

We found the management, staff, cleanliness, safety and amenities at this hotel to be exceptional. The manager's reception, which included a good dinner and wine, was a welcome surprise. The complimentary breakfast included a variety of quality breakfast foods including a station where one could order an omelet, pancakes or French toast. Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We will return.

just ok...The room was pricey with very little value. it was nice to have a kitchenette, very useful. Although it would have been even nicer if utencils were cleaned and dishwasher unloaded before our arrival. Very noisy too. Who would have thought a train would run a minimum of 4 times during one evening...wow! Pullout was old and no comfort for our kids. Room was pretty spacious, but very few ammenities worth the price. only 2 towels would be provided, despite our claim of a family of 4.

While stranded after an $80 cab ride to the wrong hotel, an off-duty employee of the downtown Homewood Suites came to pick me up free of charge and on his own time. I have never had that kind of service from any hotel before.

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..
