“I would pay a little more to stay somewhere else...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

I stayed here with my family on our way to Disney World. I didn't know anything about jacksonville and was choosing this motel based on reviews and price. It is not worth the money. The hotel had a weird odor to it, there were bugs on the floor. And at night, there are strange people walking around. I have an 8 and a 4 year old. I didn't feel safe. It's next to a Burger King and a truck place next door. There is an adult store across the street. I've stayed at other Super 8's in other regions, and this is by far the worst of them all! Pay a little more and stay somewhere else. even if it is for 1 night just to get some shut eye.

Room Tip: If you MUST stay at this hotel... try to stay on the first floor so you can run to your car faster i...

We felt they had "ripped" us off, we had a coupon for a room ($39.95), they asked if we wanted a room with a micro fridge, I said yes, guy says 6 bucks more, so by the time he had rung up the bill it was 20+ dollars more than the coupon.We were tooo tired to argue with these folks
This place was on a road in front of a busy road, so the traffic can get loud/and some what heavy.We were pretty much off to the end on the ground floor.
We might make a return trip...not sure we would stay there...

Room Tip: If u want to keep some things chilled in a fridge, expect to pay for it,, the micro/fridges are only...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

I stayed here for five days for vacation with my family. The beds were confortable, and the room was clean. The continental breakfast was outstanding. I booked my room on Hotwire and got a great deal. Some drawbacks: (1.) There is what looks like a school bus garage next door, so the noise gets loud. (2). The road in front of the motel is very aggressive, so be careful pulling in and out. (3). Like many Hotwire motels, this place gets crowded. There were two parties next to my room the five nights I was here. There is a XXX adult club nearby, which might have led to the rowdy neighbors.

The motel is very reasonable, especially through Hotwire, so I would recommend it. It is generic, no pool. There is a small laundramat on the premisis, and there was a small refrigerator and a mircowave in my room......

I stayed here for one night and it was definitely a pleasant experience. The price was certainly reasonable and suprisingly inexpensive (we paid $45 for the night)
The room and beds were clean sheets were definitely clean, it looked updated. It was in a nice area. The pool was great and on a hot day, the water was definitely warm and refreshing.There's nothing for me to complain about. I'd definitely stay there again.

Used a hotel coupon from a gas station so it was $41 total. Was clean and affordable. Would consider staying again - the price was right and it was quiet.

Conveniently located off the intertsate, lots of amenities nearby. Fast check in, friendly staff, clean room. Basic breakfast, but good value overall. Would stay again if passing through.

After arriving in Jax late in the evening all I wanted was a good hot shower and a clean bed. And boy did this place deliver. Location was key, it's right off I-95 and shopping and dining are all just a short drive away. The price was excellant not to mention there was no extra charge for my pooch "Wiggles". The room was nice, clean, comfortable with no loud noise at night by surrounding guest. I totally recommend this place to all who are traveling on a budget but desire somewhere nice to lay your head.
