After the January snow storm that paralyzed the Metro-Atlanta area, my husband declared: “If we get hit with another storm, we’re heading to Florida.” On Wednesday, February 12, 2014, when the ice storm arrived fast and furious, we packed our bags and drove to Jacksonville, Tampa, and then Orlando to visit family and friends until all the cold, ice, and slush had cleared.
At first, it was very difficult finding accommodations that were reasonably priced using the name your price feature on the negotiator until I clicked on express deals. I ended up booking a one-night stay at the Best Western Hotel Jtb Southpoint for $39.00 per night, and we were pleasantly surprised.
The room was compact: a comfortable full-size bed (forgot to ask for king size at check-in), a clean bathroom, cable television, a computer desk, a closet with a shelf overtop to store additional luggage, free parking, internet, and breakfast.
Breakfast was served between the hours of 6:30 – 9:30 am in the Sawgrass Room on the first floor of the hotel. The buffet included fruit, yogurt, waffles, Danishes, eggs, sausage, toast, biscuits and gravy, coffee and tea, orange, apple, and cranberry juices. Guests don’t have to worry about rations running low because there is a foodservice person there maintaining the buffet.
The hotel staff is very friendly. The hotel has easy access in, out, and around town. The only drawback to our stay is that our room was an adjoining suite, which made the walls seem a little thin. Otherwise, this was a great stay and I would highly recommend the Best Western Hotel Jtb Southpoint.
