I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks while attending appointments at the Mayo Clinic. The hotel is exceptionally clean, new, has a great business center with 2 computers, free wifi in your room, fridge and microwave in the room, pool, hot tub, mini mart for snacks and great staff. The hotel has a free shuttle service that drops you off and picks you up from the Mayo Clinic and it is very reliable, the ride is 5-10mins. They have a great free breakfast and if you are fasting and going to the Mayo Clinic for early morning blood draws the hotel has free brown bag meals that you can take with you and eat after your fast. The hotel is across from a shopping center with a Super Target, Michaels Crafts, Panarea Bread and more shops and fast food restaurants that you can walk to. If you have a car, Town Center is a great place to walk around and shop, they have a Cheesecake Factory, PF Changs, Starbucks and more. The beach is close by, by car as is Downtown Jacksonville and a great Zoo. Target is great because you can buy groceries there and keep them in the fridge in your room. I ate most of my meal at the Ale House or Town Center. If you don't have a car and the hotel can give you the name of a great taxi driver that can take you anywhere locally or to the airport for very reasonable rates, she is super nice. I am very glad I picked this hotel.

We have stayed here twice now, both times for multiple nights. While it is the standard Fairfield Inn (which is a good thing!), it is it's people and location that make it worthwhile. We have had such great experiences here with the staff, that we just can't say enough. Very friendly and very competent. The hotel is always clean, has ample free parking, good breakfast area, etc. The best part, though? You are right across the street from a sister property (Courtyard) that is right on the ocean. You are allowed to use their ocean-side pool, just by showing them your Fairfield key! You can also walk right out of their poo area, go down to the ocean for a dip, and then return to the pool area. What a wonderful setup.

The only downsides that I can think of are: the HVAC doesn't have a continuously run setting for the fan, so if you are like us and you need that noise to drown out all the sounds of the hotel, bring a fan or sound machine; and, there is only one, rather slow elevator, which is not usually a problem in a 3-story hotel, but the stairways are about the most inconvenient ones I've ever seen, so you usually end up waiting for the lift!

Obviously, I would recommend this property in a heartbeat, especially if you can get a great price on the room.

Our two weeks in this lovely hotel was definitely not long enough. The hotel staff is the best at everything that they do. The front desk is very friendly and accommodating. They never kept us waiting when we needed help. The housekeeping staff did an amazing job at keeping the hotel spotless. I challenge anyone to find any dirt in that hotel! The breakfast staff kept everything stocked and clean. Also the hotel was very quiet and convenient to restaurants, shopping and the beach. If you are headed for Jacksonville, you really will have missed out if you don't stay here!

Planned for a long term stay and they upgraded me to a suite at per diem rate. Unfortunately my stay was cut short but really appreciate the service. Rooms were decent and had great sleep for my stay. Can't beat the location.

This is the #1 Fairfield Inn in the world, and tied with the Best Marriott in the world (which is, of all places, in West Des Moines, Iowa! Go figure).

As a Marriott Platinum customer, there are some years I spend more nights at marriott than in my own home. Over the last 5 years, I have stayed at this Fairfield at least 100 nights, and it is no exaggeration to say that the staff is Outstanding, the room service is terrific, the location is perfect, and the prices are very fair.

(sorry, BETTER on all counts than the Courtyard across the street, and superior to ever other hotel on the beach)

NOTABLY
1) You can control your own A/C, and run the fan all night long (us White Noise guys like that)
2) Free Internet service, easy to use, reliable
3) Great little breakfast buffet in the morning
4) Good small pool that is RARELY if ever packed with crumbsnatchers (unlike the other hotels in town)
5) Most of the staff has been with this hotel for 5-6 years and they have this operation down to a science.

WHAT'S NOT GREAT ABOUT THIS HOTEL.
Nothing. Nothing is not great. See opening statement, above.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE
You're only a block away from a terrific little Thai restaurant (order the shrimp roll appetizer, and the green curry) , the 8-Till-Late has the best wine prices in town (tell Canti the owner I said hello), and still you are walking or stumbling distance to the pubs of downtown JAX Beach.

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 201, that's MINE.

This was my first trip to Jacksonville. I went there to attend a college basketball tournament. I loved this hotel. The location is steps from the beach, and it's right across the street from The Courtyard Marriott. The best part is you can use the amenities at BOTH hotels. I also enjoyed the hotel because it was very accessible to major highways and activities.

Stayed here for a wedding weekend with two girl friends. Great location, very friendly and accommodating staff, clean rooms, continental breakfast included. Just a short walk from the beach, plus you get to use all the amenities of the oceanfront Marriott right across the street!
