Quick Stay

Needed a place to crash for a few hours but would not normally book for overnight. Old, musty smell. Scratchy and stiff towels. Old tv. Holes in sheets. Bed was comfy and a/c unit worked great at keeping room cool. Friend stopped by and was very leary about sitting on bed. Nothing super about this place but that's what I expected.

Didn't like it at all

Room wasn't any neat. The other guests were kind of creepy. Though close to downtown, as I preferred, and even for a 1-night stay, I'd rather plan not to book anything at such a cheap place in the future.

good for a night

I really like the location and price of this hotel and I really like that they have a microwave and mini-fridge for travelers. The towels and sheets aren't very clean, but if you need a cheap place to stay for a night or two it's great.

Decent cheap motel

Nothing special, but good enough to spend a night at. Internet only worked outside.

Needed to do more research.

The Super 8 was more or less what I expected from a Super 8 - basic, comfortable, no frills. I wish I'd done a little more research regarding the exact location of this Super 8 (there are several throughout Jacksonville) since it was closer to the city than I'd have liked and further from my areas of interest. A simple Google search would have worked in my favor. The staff were all friendly and helpful, from the desk to housekeeping. When I arrived at 11p, it took 3 rooms before the desk clerk was able to find one without a problem - but he was quite courteous throughout and apologized multiple times.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

A word to the wise (which I wasn't), if anyone is visiting - Jacksonville seems to shut down their delivery services by 10 - 11, dependant upon where you're located, so if you get in late, make sure you either have some food to cook in the microwave or stop at a restaurant and get some to-go before settling in for the night.
