Casa Marina Hotel on Jacksonville Beach is an elegant old lady still living on and living the beach. Built in the 1920s, she's was truly a grand dame in her day, hosting celebrities such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, John D. Rockefeller, and President Harry S. Truman and F.D.R. Jean Harlow and Al Capone. Hollywood greats such as Chaplin and Pickford made appearances during times ("pre- Hollywood") when movies were made in Jacksonville.

In the 1980s, however, the Hotel was under going major updating and renovation --enabling a recent college grad/beach bum to rent a three-room apartment there for just $240/month. What a deal!

Now that she's back on her feet, rooms go for that much per NIGHT of course (be sure to ask for specials).

The rooms are very comfortable --and even a bit magical when you consider the people that have stayed there before.

And there's a very good bar/restaurant on the top floor overlooking the expanse of Jax Beach.

You're going to truly feel relaxed, welcome and "right at home on the sand".

Room Tip: Take an upper level/ocean facing room for better breezes. Rates may vary.

The restaurant is really first rate. Lunch is as elegant as it gets on the Beach, and the food is as good as the service and the ambiance. Sterling is the manager and has been working in restaurants on the Beach as long as I have lived here. 20 plus years. We'll be back!

My husband and I stopped here on our Honeymoon and fell in love. We were looking for a place we could go and stay and not have to go anywhere else. They had food and drink onsite as well as a very close walk to the beach. On the trip they upgraded our room to the interior suite that faces the water. Beautiful room. Amazing sheets. (Went and bought some since our last trip there.) Went to the bar on a weekday night. Got personalized attention from Chris. Great service. Amazing food and wonderful drinks. They do specials every night and that night was half priced martinis. Belvedere martinis with hand stuffed blue cheese olives for $5. Left the bar and went swimming in the ocean. Had a beautiful stay. very comfortable beds. The bathrooms could use a little shelf in the shower as well as some additional water pressure.
Went back this last March and held my love for the place. Different room. Couldnt get the AC to work but it was March so I popped open the windows and felt the seabreeze and listened to the ocean all night. The bar was hopping as this was a saturday night. Enjoyed our trip once again to the bar. Chris was there as well as another really great bar tender. Probably 150 people there and still got amazing service and great food as well. On Sunday morning we got up and went to the Sunday brunch, oh my god it was great with a beautiful room as well. You can go wrong withthis place. We fell in love and will always be our place to go.

Was really amazed at the location and views! I mentioned that I was booking here for my husband's Birthday and we were surprised to find a bottle of champiagn and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in our room !! Enjoyed cocktails & appetizers at the Penthouse Suite on the rooftop. The views of Jacksonville Beach were awesome. When booking we were told that our room ( oceanfront) was directly under the Penthouse Lounge and could be noisy. It was but did not effect our time or sleep.On Sunday we enjoyed their Brunch !! Highly recommended !! Loved the entire experience !! Thanks to all of the staff for such awesome customer dervice !!

My husband and I were excited to be staying at a renovated historic boutique hotel. Upon arrival we were happy to find a well kept renovated room. The morning after our first night we enjoyed a nice breakfast.

The first night (Wednesday) went very well but on Thursday the hotel turned into a very different place with two parties hosted at the hotel - one on the rooftop and another in the courtyard. The music was so loud that when we turned in at 10 pm it was impossible to get to sleep. There's also a lack of security in that people from the courtyard gathering roamed the hallways upstairs. There was no indication on the website or in person when we checked in that those who seek peace and quiet should stay away from this property. A warning is in order. Denying access to the hotel rooms from partiers should be a priority.

Room Tip: Avoid this place from Thursday - Sunday if you seek peace and quiet.
