Great Value

A good, clean, decent Hotel with very good staff. Very reasonable rates make it great value. Excellent breakfast. Good location near many shops and multiple restaurants. I would definitely stay there again if I needed to stay in that area once more.

Overall pleasant enough

Room was clean and appeared that décor had been recently updated. Bathroom was clean, well maintained. Bed quite comfortable. Of concern: Entry to all rooms from outside. Deadbolts worked. But I generally prefer only inside room entries. I had to exchange the room entry card twice, as it would not read code for entry. Frustrating b/c it was a pain to walk all the way back to check in desk. No elevators.

Could use better housekeeping

The breakfast and wait staff were great! The bed was comfortable and may help me talk my husband into a king size bed. However, upon arrival to our original room we were shocked by the lack of cleanliness of the room. The mirror was filthy, the toilet looked dirty, and the sheets had hairs on them. We were assigned a new room and at least the sheets looked clean. I did, however, go out and buy bathroom cleaner and I cleaned the sink, toilet, and shower/tub before we used them. The windows in the whole complex need regular cleaning and the housekeeping staff needs to be trained and monitored regularly.

Decent hotel. Get the basics and it is peaceful.

Has breakfast and is 30 minutes from Jacksonville beaches. Was clean, but basic. Very peaceful and we didn't have any issues. Don't forget to tip the servers at breakfast. Beakfast is free, but there income is still tip based :) Enjoy youself at this hotel!

Great for families

Everyone was fantastic! The housekeepers were friendly and a great help anything we needed they came through. One housekeeper gave my six year old a pool noodle and another always had candy on hand for him. The rooms were very clean as well as the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and everything was fully stocked when we arrived. The security was a plus also to gain access to the hotel you needed your room key so no one was ever roaming around. I would definitely consider another extended stay. Definitely worth the money.
