family-friendly hotel near JAX?

Hi all -- we will be staying in jacksonville one night, flying out drastically early the next morning but checking in early the afternoon of our stay. we are looking for a hotel close to the airport, and since we have three energetic kids we'd like one that at least has a pool. looking at springhill suites, does anyone local have recommendations along these lines? we'd be willing to drive a little distance for something extra special. thanks!

The area around the airport is not very exciting, so if your goal is to be right by there then there isnt much else to do. Anything better would be 20-30 minutes away (downtown or beaches)

If you stay out near the airport, you will be adjacent to the Rivercity Marketplace, which is a large outdoor shopping mall, restaurants and movie theater. We can make further recommendations with a little more info. Will you have a car and will you be here on a weekend?

The Crowne Plaza near the airport has an indoor and outdoor pool, and as canflgirl said River City marketplace has a movie theatre and plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you busy for a one day stop. depending on how early you get there, the zoo is about 10 minutes away.
