I booked this hotel because it is #1 on TripAdvisor's list for Jacksonville so I did expect more from it.
I loved the fast check-in and the location of this hotel. It has a McDonald's within walking distance as well as various shopping areas.
They did do a great job with honoring my preferences with Marriott rewards. They provided me a room on the first floor as well as extra towels for my two night stay. I did like the flat screen TV, as well as the availability of a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. The pillows and bed were fine with me.
The room was clean but not sparkling clean. There were multiple fingerprint smudges on the desk, a grain of rice near the refrigerator. The bathroom is small. You have to completely close the bathroom door in order to get into the tub to shower.
My main complaint is horrible soundproofing in the room. I am staying here to have a nice quiet weekend alone as my first getaway since becoming a mommy. But I constantly hear what sounds to me like a SUMO wrestler marching to and fro in the room above me as well as the horror movie in the room next to me. I can even hear giggling in the next room.
So overall, it's just another Fairfield Inn but definitely not worth $94+taxes (AAA discounted rate).More
