Very clean room. The linens were spotless and the bed was heavenly. The Wife was really wanting to bring it home, really. The ocean view was glorious and uninhibited. The waves crashing and surfers riding those waves provided an ambience that was wonderful and relaxing. The Balcony was of adequate size for 2 adults and the Room did not have...

The location could not be any better, the view was superb. Perfect for exercise, walking, proximity to other amenities, as well as wonderful food selections. They even had a new Health Store and bakery open up a few blocks from them. Awesome time! Loved the stay!

Picked this hotel on line so really did not know exactly where it was located. Got there very early (12 noon), and room were not ready. Friendly front desk clerk told us to come back around 2 PM but we were welcome to park there and use the ocean and pool. Got a room on the 3rd floor, clean, small...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Our night auditor confirmed that a rollaway bed was requested and delivered. A security guard was present when one of the persons affiliated with the renter of record requested the rollaway using some colorful language. The security guard remained with that person at the front desk while the rollaway was delivered. Eventually...

group of 20 stayed at this hotel prior to cruise. Beautiful hotel clean, and excellent service front desk was great. Beach right out the back door. Bars and restaurants all with in walking distance. Walgreens a few blocks away shops up and down the street. Great place to stay prior to cruising out of port Jacksonville.

Just checked out today and couldn't wait to review. HORRIBLE. It smelled like urine in the room. The ceiling was half painted. Door didn't close all the way. The duvet cover - I can tell it had not been washed from the person that stayed before me because it smelled like COLOGNE. I hated everything about this place. I am...

We. Noose this hotel because of the direct link to a beach. Normally I expect more from a Best Western. The staff is nice and friendly and we did not had any bad experience with the room. There was no breakfast room, you sit in the lobby and there are just 3 tables for all the rooms. It is more...

We liked the location on the beach, close to everything! A little hiccup with no hand towels which they immediately replaced. Small balcony and would have liked it better with less concrete walls on the side and more open view from the room. Sitting out there it is fine...just like to see more. Room décor was great as was the...

Quite disappointed at the fact that the pictures are way better than in person! There is a large ugly tub right next to the bed! Found roaches in the room! Paying over $200 a night for this? I can pay the same price in better locations on the beach else where in Florida! Never coming back!

We have notified our pest control company to do a thorough check of our rooms. We will be starting a complete renovation of our guestrooms very soon. We do have a fantastic oceanfront location in the heart of the entertainment area in Jacksonville Beach. We hope you give us another chance on your next visit to Jacksonville Beach.

“You are a block from the ocean. The ocean view rooms would be great if you can afford them. We had a courtyard room and still got a glimpse of the water from the balcony.”

“We had a room facing the beach (and a balcony). We felt it was worth the room rate. This room also had been recently remodeled and there was better than adequate lighting! In addition to lights at the beds and on the desk, there was also overhead lighting, which puts this property ahead of many others.”
