This was out first visit to Jacksonville. We were there for 3 nights, and chose this hotel based on its location, which was in the center of the things we wanted to do, and also on its T.A. reviews and ratings. We flew in to Jacksonville and rented a car at the airport. We drove down on I 95, through Jacksonville, and were to the hotel in about 45 minutes. We have no complaints, at all. It was quiet, clean, safe, and about 20 minutes driving time from the stadium, St. Augustine, and the beaches. We did not eat at the hotel, but there are several restaurants just across the freeway bridge. All staff were very friendly and helpful in answering questions about the area. I would definitely return to this hotel if I again should be in the area.
