Very clean big room. Staff was nice and courteous. Do not expect breakfast. An ok coffee or tea 24 hours at the lobby. One block from Duval St and near to the southernmost point. A very nice stay. Plenty of parking. Nice hot shower.

Yes it is. It's away from the main chaos on the other end of Duval. Pool is nice and breakfast provided. Basic motel but clean and comfortable. Beach close by.

The parking lot is small and the spaces are relatively shallow. It would be in your best interest not to make that attempt.
