“Consistent Nice”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Over the past 6 years, my family has visited Jacksonville many times to see relatives. We have stayed at most of the nice hotels at the beaches over the years, but have found the Courtyard by Marriott Jax Beach to be consistently the best. Why? Clean rooms. Nice sized suite. Nice breakfast buffet. Great beach. Pool. While staying there again last week, I noticed the Trip Advisor Commendation on the front door. Wanted to add my endorsement to the chorus!

Room Tip: The suites are located on the 6th and 7th floors. I believe most of the rooms have an ocean view.

I had average expectations of this hotel, and I have to say it exceeded all of them. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the pier and shops, but far enough away. The pool bar was good, the pool was a nice break, and the beach was lovely. Our room had an oceanfront view, which I would highly recommend. Much to do within easy walking distance of this hotel.
Facility was great, with a nice breakfast area, and indoor bar. Fire pit at night was an added plus. Staff was very friendly and tried to please. I would highly recommend this hotel to a family or business travel that wanted a nice place to stay on the beach. Definitely a diamond in the rough.

My son, boyfriend and I stayed over the 4th of July weekend and we live here at the beaches so our mini vaca served as a getaway. They let us check in early and we were able to select which Junior Suite we wanted to stay in. The suite was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed with a great ocean view and nice size balcony. The breakfast area and pool bar had a variety of selections. The staff is very attentive, professional, and accommodating including the maintenance man who helped with an issue on my beach canopy. The staff at this hotel wants to make sure everyone's visit is perfect. Where this hotel is situated is nestled in a residential area with other newer hotels which makes the beach feel more private. Just a short stroll or bike ride and you are amongst the shops located in a more busier beach life. Bike riding is a must-do for beach and road riding. Remember to lock up your bikes and wash off the sand and salt on your bikes. We will definitely return for another beach getaway!!

The location is great, and staff are some of the most courteous and polite I have encountered in a long time. The day, evening, overnight and morning staff all had their standouts. Check in was a breeze. We stayed two days for a mother daughter weekend and enjoyed the best night sleep! The pool beachside is a plus, as the property adjacent does not have a pool Oceanside. I also enjoyed the fire pit. Another element missing from next door. This property has more oceanfront rooms, and a great staff. Two annoyances, the breakfast was not included with the price of your stay and the lobby is a bit tired. Needs updating. The lobby seemed outdated however rooms and pool area are great. You do need your room key to get off the beach, and again to the pool. Rather annoying but understandable. There was no safe in the room, which should be standard for any hotel in a 5 category, especially at the beach. All in all lovely stay. Nothing against fishing, but I do wish fishing was not allowed on the beach....here chum the water for the kids swimming everywhere, you might catch a toddler, or bring in the sharks. The pier is a fishing pier.....with so many children on the beach, I don't see this as a very nice practice, and there were quite a few people fishing from the beach 11am-2pm.....

Room Tip: Pay for the view it's worth every penny, except when other guests smoke on their balcony,

Thank you for the wonderful comments regarding our staff and taking the time to review The Courtyard Oceanfront. It’s great to hear you enjoyed your stay. We added the fire pit a few years ago and it’s been a huge hit ever since. Regarding your concerns, I wanted to let you know that a plan for updating our lobby is currently in the works. Dates currently are not yet available, but once those are announced you will be able to find those on our website. We are really looking forward to this and believe guests will really enjoy the changes that are planned. As for breakfast, we do have several rates that include breakfast, along with different al a cart items at a reasonable price. Thank you for your business and we look forward to seeing you back at the Courtyard Marriott Oceanfront in the future.

My coworkers and I stayed for about 2 months, 4 days a week, at the Jacksonville Beach Courtyard while working for a client in Jacksonville. We absolutely love this hotel!

This is a clean, safe, and friendly place to stay, and it is right on the beach. The hotel staff is courteous and took great care of us during our stay.

Jacksonville Beach is a nice slow moving beach town that has everything. We hated to leave once our work was done.

We picked this hotel for a 4 day get away to Jacksonville beach. From a beach perspective the hotel did not disappoint. The beach was great - and the service provided for the beach chairs and umbrella were also excellent. The restaurant was also nice for breakfast - but a bit on the pricey side. The two annoyances that we encountered was the the lack of a room safe to store our valuables while we were at the beach - this is a must have in our opinion for a beach front hotel - who wants to go to the beach leaving their wallet and car keys "hidden" in the room for someone to steal or find? The second annoyance was the refrigerator in the room - the "fridge" was really an icebox as we were told by the property maintenance team that the fridges in the rooms don't really keep items cold - his advice was to get ice and put it in the fridge daily to keep our drinks cold.

Other than the pointed out annoyances the hotel was great - I would stay at his hotel again when we come back Jacksonville.
