I have stayed at both the Courtyard and Hampton on Jax Beach. I will return to the Courtyard during my next stay. They did mess up the reservation, after some complaining, they did fix it the next day when the appropriate room became available. The breakfast was good (it is not free), the view from the balcony is great, it was clean and comfortable. The cons for this hotel are no room service (although neither did the Hampton) and no restaurant onsite except for breakfast. They do have a little "market" where you can buy food and drinks but it is tiny and only good for snacks. For the options on Jax Beach, this will be the hotel I choose.

We stayed at the Marriott facility on the beach and it was fantastic. The room overlooked the beach on an upper floor and we could watch the sunrise each morning, then set off on a walk with a fresh cup of hot coffee. Beach combing and checking out the sites. The facility had food service, a beach side bar and rentals, we used them all. The location was very convenient to the coast and the other places we wanted to visit. Local restaurants are excellent, some in walking distance.

Was only here for a couple nights on business, but being right on the beach and seeing the ocean each morning made it a great start and ending to each work day. Staff at the front desk not so great, but staff in the restaurant/bar area was fantastic.

Surprised that a sold out week full of families (spring breakish time) I overheard the manager saying they were not going to bother to open the area for food for lunch, only breakfast. The staff was even saying it should be open, he said he didn't want to bother. Shocking really, and quite an inconvenience for families staying there.

Nice outdoor patio area to relax, right on a nice section of beach, clean and looks somewhat updated. As a gold marriott member, received no recognition, not even a bottle of water, and was given a smirk when I asked if I could upgrade to a room where I could at least see the ocean.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean, the others are too disappointing. So close and yet so far....

Outstanding property on the beach. I was in a Junior King Suite; it was huge for hotel standards. The balcony alone was worth the price: direct view of beach and breath-taking sunrise. The balcony ran the full length of the suite. The room has floor to ceiling windows running the entire length so is breath-taking. Very sound-proof room (if you tire of the wave noise); clean (actually spotless). Superior customer service; only saw this on Disney properties. No one did not smile or greet me. Roberto, a housekeeper vacuuming the halls saw me struggle with my baggage and dropped everything to assist. I wanted a book from the room about Jacksonville/St. Augustine & Amelia Island and the Asst. Manager let me have a complimentary copy. Desk clerks have excellent advice on local food (loved Metro Cafe). A Concierge was on duty until 8 pm when I was there. Very fast complimentary wifi, free parking on property. Great breakfast and again with cheerful, great service. This property is so clean, even the beach is spotless. I was a single, older lady traveling on business and stayed here to enjoy two days in the sun. When my flight was rescheduled to later in the day, the staff went out of their way to accommodate me after I left the room, storing my suitcases and letting me hang-out by the pool. (On that note, as a lone female traveler, not walking the beach at night is advised). Employees at this hotel seem to love there job. I will come back. Highly recommend. Hidden gem.

Room Tip: Upper floor balcony for view.

Beautiful location right on the beach. Staff was fantastic, and room was nice and clean. Lots of restaurants and things to do nearby so you don't have to feel stuck in your hotel like other places. Will stay again when back in the area.

Even though we live in Jacksonville, we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Oceanfront for a weekend night to recharge our batteries. The rooms are clean, comfortable, have a stunning view, and include a balcony large enough to sit and enjoy all the sights. The service and overall friendliness of the staff will keep us coming back!! The pool was clean, uncluttered, and included a tiki bar and some live entertainment. We enjoyed the breakfast which is served buffet or off a menu with an open bar for that vacation Bloody Mary!! Every step of our stay was catered to from the front desk to the housekeeper to the restaurant manager. We will most certainly be returning.

The ocean view room was wonderful. The staff was very friendly from the time we arrived to the time we left. This was a upgrade from your normal Courtyard property. You are in walking distance to a lot of rest. and bars. If you are looking for a place on Jacksonville beach this is the place for you.
