"Convenient to downtown. Great hotel if you're cruising out of Jacksonville. The zoo and waterway were right down the street. The room was clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating.2018-04-30"
"Average hotel stay. The front desk clerks didn't seem to care about guests, and the cab service to the port and back was terrible. It was late taking us to our cruise ship, and we waited over an hour for it to pick us up when we returned to port.2015-07-24"
"The hotel had roaches and bedbugs. Don't stay here.2022-05-15"
"The hotel was close to JAXPORT, but it was located in a bad area. There was no one at the front desk when we arrived, but eventually the clerk appeared and checked us in without enthusiasm. The hotel looked new, but the room wasn't nice and didn't look like online photos.2015-08-20"
"This hotel was absolutely awful. Our room door was open when we arrived. There were cigarette burns in the comforter, and a grocery bag over the light fixture above the bed. All the furniture was broken. People smoked marijuana in the parking lot. We left 10 minutes after checking in because I didn't feel safe.2022-06-23"

"There were roaches in the hallway; we told the hotel clerk, and although she said she'd call an exterminator, she didn't seem concerned. The bed blankets were damp. This was my 1st stay here, and it will definitely be my last.2019-11-03"
"The hotel was a dump, but the room was clean.2019-09-10"

"The motel room wasn't well-cleaned, and the door lock needed repair.2017-09-04"

"Great hotel stay. I loved the heated pools and the bar. Kick off your shoes and relax here.2016-03-28"
"The alarm clock in the room required a PhD to set, and it was still set for daylight savings time. It took 3 calls to get a technician to re-program it. The TV remote control didn't work. Extraordinary service; I truly felt valued and at home here. I dined on-site 3 times, and the service and food were stellar. I'll stay at this hotel again.2015-11-23"
"The hotel was clean and comfortable, and the front desk clerks were friendly. You won't regret staying here.2015-11-07"
"The room was clean. Great motel clerk and easy check-in. Breakfast was good. Book it.2018-12-29"
"I had a horrible stay at this motel. The 1st room had stained carpeting, dirty bedsheets, and a dirty bathroom. We were given another room, but there were blood stains on the bed. The doorknob fell off the door. We were moved to a 3rd room, but the doorknob fell off the door of that room as well. The toilet wouldn't flush, and the staff said there was no plunger so I'd have to use the lobby restroom until morning. I asked for a refund and stayed somewhere else. Don't stay here.2018-10-13"

"The hotel staff was superb, especially the front desk clerks.2019-12-02"
"An excellent hotel with great rooms and service. The staff was superb. Stay here.2018-06-02"
"Walk to Ruby Tuesday and Longhorn Steakhouse. We arrived late and were grateful for the free cookies and very comfortable beds. The TV didn't work, but our stay was so short that it wasn't a problem. We told the manager, though, and were pleasantly surprised to be offered a discount. We've stayed at this hotel before, and it's always been most satisfactory.2015-12-04"

"The hotel was within walking distance of several restaurants, including The MillHouse across the street. I appreciated the video surveillance of the entire building, including the hallways. Nice front desk staff; I had trouble with the key card, and the manager came up right away and changed the battery on the door lock. Breakfast was well-stocked, and the eating area was kept clean. I had to leave early my last day, and a grab and go breakfast was ready for me. Coffee was available 24 hours a day. New laminate floor was being added when I arrived, and it looked great. Good place to stay.2016-01-27"

"The hotel was run-down and needed updating and fresh paint. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable, and the sheets were scratchy. I saw many roaches in the bathroom. The park and fly was convenient, but I wouldn't stay here again.2022-05-15"
"The hotel exterior and lobby were appealing, but the room was dark and claustrophobic. The walls were dark brown, and the dark carpet was worn and dirty. The bed sagged in the middle. The toilet paper roll was almost empty, and when I replaced it, a dead roach fell out of the tissue roll. 2018-11-27"

"Don't expect a 5-star hotel, but the room was nice and had been recently renovated. The building was old, and renovations will help a lot. Good experience overall.2017-10-29"
"Not a good value. The hotel was large and had poor signage. Unless you go through the front door, you can wander the hallways until you stumble upon the elevators. No balcony in my room as I expected, and no soap was provided. The side of the desk was damaged. The check-in clerk mumbled terribly. The fire alarm went off for a few seconds in the late afternoon. Find another place to stay.2017-10-27"
"The hotel had been remodeled and looked great. A pair of men's shoes were outside my door, and a man showed up at 10:30 PM with a key to my room. I called room service repeatedly before finally the front desk clerk took my order. The self-parking near construction was a hassle.2017-05-21"
"My husband was on crutches, and the hotel clerk said we should let her know if the room wasn't convenient and we could change rooms. Parking cost $6. Breakfast was just coffee, snack bars, and a packet of oatmeal guests could microwave in their rooms.2019-09-18"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
