“Hotel is not as elegant as it used to be”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Rooms are not as nice as they used to be, they need updating, we were repeat guests and we were given room 514, which has an awful bathroom full of bad patch work. Breakfast starts running out when they still have 30 minutes to serve it, and when you ask for more the attendant is not to happy about it.

Thank you for a great stay, the manager and all the staff were very sweet and accommodating and we felt taken care of. The hotel had a friendly feel, the rooms as always at comfort suites are large and comfortable, comfortable bed.. Breakfast was great, home made waffles and sausage, coffee, juice, cereals, fruit. It was a 20 minute drive to the beach. Plenty of parking space altogether a worthwhile place to stay.

The hotel was very accomodating. I have stayed several times and always enjoy each stay. The breakfast is great. They even have strawberry flavored waffled and allowed me to have a lard checkout. Which was very much appreciated. I will definitely stay again!

I found our experience to be rather adequate. I am originally from the Jacksonville area, and I came home to take care of some business and to see the folks. This location was convenient for us as I needed to be on the Southside for business, and my family lives on the Northside. I-95 is right there. You can get anywhere in minutes.

We checked in later in the evening by a friendly guy. The front lobby makes the property look better than it really does. All of the public areas were clean and inviting. The room was just... meh. It wasn't dirty. It didn't smell. It just ... I don't know how to describe it. It was just a room.

The only thing I did not like was that in an attempt to make a "suite" they divided the room with this support wall. The bedroom area was on the left and the seating area was on the right. Of course, they are only going to put one TV in the room, so what do they do? They put it smack dab in the middle. So, it didn't matter where you sat in the room, you always had an awkward view of the TV. We didn't come to Jacksonville to watch TV, but it was something to laugh at when we finally settled down for the night.

The bathroom also left much to be desired. They really should update a few things, so it looks less like a horror film. It was clean, but just so... it reminded me of the bathroom in the movie Psycho, yes, the film where the girl gets stabbed to death in the shower.

The water took about 20 minutes to heat up. This was extremely irritating. At first I thought I didn't know how to use the taps, but then I realised I'm not that much of an idiot. I let the water run and run and run before it finally got tepid. I got into the shower anyway (we were in a hurry) and by the time I was done THEN the water got hot. Same thing in the sink. It's wasteful to run the water like that just waiting for it to heat up.

We slept okay. The bed seemed fine. No bedbugs. The next morning we went down for the free breakfast. Really, you get what you pay for. It's the standard fare, the junk they serve at all the free breakfast hotels. Nothing to write home about.

I am a big fan of the Comfort Hotels brand. This hotel was not up to their usual standards. It is right off of a busy highway and directly across the street from a fire station. Frankly, the neighborhood seemed a bit deserted at night and I was not comfortable walking out to find a place to eat dinner. My room was facing the front of the hotel. The outside light and noise, although not intolerable, was not pleasant. Also, the tub drain was clogged and a bedside lamp was not working. The breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Ask to be put in a room away from the front of the hotel and the lights and sirens from the fire sta...

My husband and I were on the way from NC to Daytona. We were tired just outside of Jacksonville, so we called Choice Hotels for a place to stay off of 95 in Jacksonville. They reserved us a king suite at Comfort Suites Baymeadows. The rate was cheap, under $100 a night, with another 10% for AAA. This on a Friday at the beginning of spring break week. The room was large and clean, nicely furnished and decorated. The living area/small kitchenette/bathroom were at the front of the room. The bed was on the other side of a dividing wall. This meant you could leave on the bathroom light without disturbing your sleep. There were plenty of receptacles for cell phones, computers, and other electronics. The kitchenette included a minifridge, sink, and microwave. The bed was a King and super comfortable, and they provided a ton of soft cushy pillows. The complimentary breakfast bar in the lobby had plenty of variety for a continental, and you could even have eggs. Location wise, it was good. All the amenities of town were close, traffic wasn't bad either. The only minor gripe I have is the internet connection - it was not very fast. Should be sufficient for email, not so much for streaming video and such.

Room Tip: King suite was only a little more than regular, but the bed size and room layout is definitely worth...

We had a total of 9 rooms booked here for a baseball tournament. The hotel is very old with nothing updated. Wallpaper peeling off the walls, roof leaking water in the lobby, the beds were terrible, wi-fi didn't work 90% of the time just to name a few. The worst part was the front desk clerk, Travis. He was rude and very unprofessional. I will be contacting the general manager more about him. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
