trip to beach on vacation

Room was very clean, beds were comfy, loved the porch, breakfast was OK.....expected more variety, most staff were excellent! Had one staff member playing with her phone when I was trying to check out. That was rude!! $180 for one night was way overpriced, ...but I did book last minute. On upside location was perfect!! Would consider booking again!!

Family Get Away. !

Great location right on yhe beach! Had fresh make my own waffles for breakfast! People were friendly and ended up getting 2 cars for free parking. The room was small along with the breakfast area. Could see the beach from my window, and would stay again. Lots of stores nearby to shop at.

We had a great time! Awesome location literally right on the beach, and the room had a hot tub!! Loved it, a little pricey but it was very nice!

Not bad at all

Even though the room was a little pricey it was great!! Literally right on the beach and there was a hot tub in the room! The only bad thing was a slight strange smell probably due to the moisture in the room from the hot tub.

On the Beach as Advertised

It really is oceanfront. Room was spacious and well lighted and furnished. Front desk manager was very helpful in a restauran recommendation that proved to be our best meal of the trip. Breakfast offering was uninspiring but a well known coffee shop was a few blocks away.

excellent choice

I stayed two nights with my 90 year old mother in an oceanfront queen. The balcony was a bit small, but right on the beach with a great view of the sunrise and all of the people on the beach and boardwalk, so it was a perfect place for her to sit. Location could not be better - easy walk to beach, boardwalk, pier, shops and restaurants. This was my first trip to Jacksonville Beach -- it is lovely!Room was very clean and provided everything we needed. Staff very helpful, friendly and always smiling. Free and easy parking. Small pool. Nice breakfast available in the morning, and coffee available all day. In the evening warm chocolate chip cookies in the lobby. Great value for the price -- I would definitely recommend this hotel!

AWFUL! Don't go here!

Everything about this place was terrible.Room size tiny..They blamed this on the fact that I had booked this as a package! Even when larger rooms were available they refused to move us..We spent 5 hellish nights .. Ice buckets weren't lined in styrofoam so by 2nd drink it was all melted. Bath was so small with only louvered doors that were so close prACTICALLY KNEE LEVEL WHEN YOU SAT ON THE jOHN! mattress so old that you rolled toward middle.Room measured 13x15 with a king sized bed dresser desk ..no real closet just a hole in the wall.breakfast room had 3 small tables with 40+ rooms so no place to sit almost anytime..just awful..had to go out for breakfast every day but one. Pool too tiny for any more than 3 people.
