I have been staying in this Hotel for well over 10 years. The owner (J) is very care about your stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is always wonderful and caring. When I come to Jacksonville for business or pleasure, this is my home away from home.

Trip Advisor has this at 5 Star. Not safe. Office did not answer the phone for 36 hours. Security guard wears a bullet proof vest. A bug man lives on property to provide quick service. People hanging outside most of the night. Lot of drive ups and pick ups.
