“the beach on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I have stayed at this property at least 5 times for business or traveling with family, heck a year ago the family spent a whole week. You just can't beat the hotel for location, you are truly 100 yards from the beach. First the good news, the staff is always ready with a smile, helpful hint or directions to any local eateries some even within walking distance. Try Ragtime in Atlantic Beach probably too far to walk but motor up to Atlantic Beach and enjoy a fantastic micro brew and great seafood plus menu for kids..it hits all the right notes for romantic dinner for two or eatin with the fam. Now back to the hotel, rooms are always clean, all things working and the hotel shines from top to bottom...no rust or dirt to be seen and that's hard this close to the ocean. Now the bad, you used to be able to go across the street to the Courtyard and use the pool and beach access but for whatever reason, that's no more....to bad, it was one of the nicest perks of this property. You just cant beat this hotel for a great location to tour Jacksonville, St Augustine or anything else you wish to do in the area, or just enjoy the great beach location.

Room Tip: make sure you use the pool and hot tub, they were spotless when we were there so don't forget th...

I stayed here on business. The beach was very close, and there were some wonderful restaurants within a short driving distance. I found the room to be very clean and on par with a Courtyard by Marriott. There was ample parking.

Good standard Fairfield Inn with a great location. Short walk across the street to the beach. The Courtyard across the street (while on the beach) was overpriced in comparison. The Fairfield was clean and comfortable. Easy walk along the beach from this location into either Jacksonville Beach or Neptune Beach.

This is a very good value if you don't need a "beachfront" room. Just 100 yards from the beach most rooms are actually ocean view. Free breakfast and the hidden gem--full access to all the amenties at the Courtyard Hotel across the street includig their large pool and outdoor bar. Staff is pretty good. Rooms are clean but not very roomy but if you're a beach person, you won't spend much time in it. Close to Night life in Jax, Atlantic and Neptune Beach

Hotel was a good value, close to beach. It had an outstanding breakfast, looked new, and was clean. Bathrooms need fans. They had a big sign requesting people to review them on TripAdvisor, so here I am! We would come back here.

Visited in late January. The location was quiet and within walking distance of a great Thai restaurant (Sala Phad Thai). The beach was a short distance across the street and sunrises over the ocean were spectacular. Beach in Jan. was not very crowded, enjoyable.Our King room was clean, comfortable and had a nice sized bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Jason, the young man who checked us in, and the lady in the Breakfast room. The breakfast offered many choices, including fresh scrambled eggs and sausage patties. The pool was very clean. We didn't go in, but the afternoon was warm enough to sit in the sun by the pool. Such a pleasant visit. We would book at this location again, for sure.

Chosen for the brand, its location and perceived value, I was very disappointed with my experience here. The Marriot brand should be ashamed to call this property one of its own. A snotty, unfriendly, unwelcoming young woman at the front desk, mold on my bathroom ceiling, stained carpet, threadbare sheets, an old lumpy mattress, a tv with awful reception even after two service calls, no bottles of lotion in my bathroom, an improperly labeled phone and late night foot stomping from the room above me made for a terrible stay. At $94 a night, I was obviously going for value, but the room/bed were more like a 1950's motor lodge that charged $19.99 a night. The only thing this place has going for it is the lovely, cheerful, helpful attendant in the breakfast area and the housekeeping staff who went out of their way-above and beyond- to assist me with a smile. Unlike the unprofessional morons at the front desk, these folks were friendly, helpful and outstanding in their field.

Room Tip: Go across the street to the Marriot Courtyard where you will get what you expect from the Marriot br...
