This place was horrible. Alot of drug traffic going on next to our room. We were so scared to go out of the room to get anything to eat. If I ever go back to Jacksonville FL I diffently won't be staying here.

Really enjoyed staying here. The room was clean and the service was great. The staff really engaged with us which is always a good thing. They also accommodated us in everyway. The price was super reasonable and close proximity to restaurants, gas stations and nightlife entertainment.

“Dont go there. They will steal from you rooms. I spoke to the receptionist, no help, the manager never called me back. They just have nothing to say, the cleaners get into your room and steal your belonging.”
