“Nice property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We spent one night here in May, 2014 prior to a cruise. While the property does not have an airport shuttle, it is very nice and very close to the cruise port. They do offer a shuttle to the cruise port, which is very convenient. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We would go back.

This was a nice clean hotel with friendly staff...Nice breakfast in the morning. (Try the pancake machine..its simple) We stayed here one night while waiting on our carnival cruise. We also were shuttled (for a good price) to jaxport. We did have to call the hotel for them to pick us up when we got off the cruise. Overall we were prepared and all was good.

Room Tip: I don't know why (maybe the water nearby) the whole area smelled like sulfur...be warned. Also t...

Modern, minimalist- hip and updated. Very swank for an express type hotel. The suites are nicer than the regular rooms and the couch is a pull-out bed as well. Granite countertops. Gas fireplace in lobby. Free breakfast buffet with pancakes, bagels, eggs, sausage. Not too shabby. Pet fee is minimal. Nothing else for miles around except a gas station and Wendy's. Pool and hot tub as well. We go up there for the beaches in Jax area (best is Hugenot city Park and Little Talbot Island). This hotel is so affordable and cute. A great find!

This hotel was ok but for what I paid for the room I expected it to be cleaner. Uppn entering the room everything seemed to be very clean and well kept. However, after pulling back the bed sheets I discovered that the sheets were covered in stains. I also found that the quilt at the end of the bed to as though an animal had been sleeping on it because it was covered in animal hair. The staff did replace the sheets but my family and I will not be staying here again.

Husband and I stayed at H.I.Ex for 2 nights, and had a great time. The rooms are QUIET, clean, really clean, the beds and pillows are comfy, and the air conditioning was plenty cold for me!
The complementary breakfast was huge, I loved it. (Try the pancake maker machine! It's fun)
Eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage, dairy, cereal, coffee, juices, bagels, anything you might want for breakfast. We loved sitting at the long, marble-topped table, complete with pepper and salt shakers.
The grounds were clean, well-manicured, and we took a walk around the property for exercise, a couple of times.
How much can I say about AMANDA! She is the front desk clerk, and is completely adorable! A winning smile, super neat appearance, helpful, and very professional, all the time. Good job, lady! Good job!
The front lobby is well-decorated, and nice to sit in, and relax. I like how they're completely remodeled everything.
I will recommend this hotel to everyone coming this way.
