This Hotel is located right on Jax beach. A short walk from several gift shops, poular restaraunts, and the pavillion. The rooms are very nice... Love the beds very comfy. The staff are excellent, very friendly. I would recommend this hotel for people flying solo, couples, families, and even business travelers.

when we checked in and also when we checked out, Melissa was the desk clerk and. she seemed very unhappy and unfriendly. Over a four day stay, she was consistent in her unfriendliness. However, another desk clerk named Angela was upbeat and welcoming. We enjoyed the warm cookies in the afternoon. We noticed that the inspection safety certificate in the elevator had expired five months ago. These inconsistencies in service and maintenance should be addressed prior to a guest's stay and should not need to be brought to the attention of management by a guest during their stay.

Thank you TripAdvisor from Santa Cruz for your review. We do appreciate your comments in reference to our front desk staff and we did speak with the them about the importance of guest satisfaction. The inspection safety certificate for the elevator has been corrected and it should be the task of management to be make sure all certificates are up to date. We will continue to be pro-active in the area's of importance/concerns to our guests, so that they may enjoy their stay. Thank you again, for taking time out of your schedule to write us your comments and we do look forward in seeing you again if your travels brings you back to Jacksonville Beach.

I visit them every two weeks for the past five years or so. The staff is always polite and helpful. Even when I was stuck in bed till noon with a sudden back issue - they were kind enough to understand. Angela helped me get myself and my bags to the car.

Thanks,
