“Don't be Fooled!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2006

This hotel has spacious rooms but is an old hotel that was remodelled when Best Western took it over. The entire place stinks of smoke...they claim it is a non-smoking property but my whole suitcase still smells of cigarette smoke. I changed rooms 3 times and each one smelled the same.

I searched, but could not find, a trip advisor review of this hotel before booking; I see there is one other now. I was interested in this hotel because it is a stand alone hotel near the hustle & bustle of all the other hotels, shopping & restaurants across I-295 at Orange Park. This one is set back from the road and separated from all the rest of the stuff. It is just what I expected & was looking for. I will definitely use this one again unless, of course, I have my little dog with me as they don't allow pets. They are a smoke-free hotel, which I think is great. It is very clean & well maintained. The full breakfast is quite adequate & satisfying. All the staff I've dealt with have been very friendly and helpful. I have a large room with microwave & fridge and everything works! My rate is AAA $79/night for 2 queen beds, large, comfortable room.

For the Orange Park/NAS Jacksonville area, this is about as good as it gets. The rooms are clean and come wtih a fridge/microwave. Breakfast is plentiful and they have free cans of beer in the evening. This is not the Taj Mahal, but they are light years ahead of the nearby Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn (avoid those at all costs). If you have business at NAS Jax, this is the closest and in my opinion, the cleanest option available. Friendly staff as well.
