“Terrible / Loud / Old”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Amazed that this hotel could have any positive reviews. There was a mix up w our rooms on check in. Was given a room that was occupied. Had to change rooms twice until the problem was sorted out. In the room we finally got the furniture was old and dirty - throw pillows and chair badly stained. The room that my son stayed in had an uncovered florescent light as the ceiling light. Thin walls - we could hear a guy snoring in the room next to us. There is a VERY LOUD rooftop bar and music and noise can be easily heard from the guest rooms one floor below. Bar customers wander down from the bar through the cooridor and are loud/obnoxious. We heard a fight in the hallway last night with staff threating to call the police. We were there for a wedding and while the courtyard and banquet room are nice, everything else is horrible. If you care about clean, quiet, safe rooms and a hotel staff that is on top of operations... then stay anywhere else. Any bride or parents of the bride considering this hotel as a venue for their reception should reconsider...

Great location, customer service was awesome, our room was beautiful. The upstairs bar and resturant was delicious. The hotel is historic and it is cool seeing all the old pictures posted on the wall. The price for the room and prices at the bar were a great value. We will go back!

Needed a place to crash while we sea trialed a boat in Jacksonville. Got the name from the boat dealer, and decided to give them a call. I always try to stay right on the water, and this place is indeed right on the water, and it's a bargain. The people there are simply treasures. Helpful and smiling. The hotel was built in 1924. It's been well maintained. I don't particularly care for older hotels, but I'm going back to this one, as the seatrials were rained out.

Room Tip: I'd only want one that allows me to see the ocean, but that's just me.

This is a beautiful historic local with quant rooms and a beautiful beachfront. If you like antique furnishings and one of a kind rooms you will be very happy here. The staff is very pleasant and the room very clean. The Sunday brunch is NOT TO BE MISSED! Get the 10:00 am reservation, sit in the courtyard and enjoy.

Room Tip: This small hotel has a really cool rooftop bar and also hosts weddings. Request a room on the south...

My daughter recently got married at Casa Marina Hotel. The hotel was very accommodating for a wedding, and included a wedding coordinator. Everything was very well orchestrated, from the music, to the flowers, to the ceremony and rehearsal. The staff were incredibly helpful with coordinating the event, from folding chairs, to shuffling the guests while photos were taken. We also had the reception here, and the food was excellent. I would recommend the Casa Marina for anyone considering getting married there, a beautiful setting right on the beach, and the rooms were very reasonably priced.

Visiting to assess this hotel for a future business meeting site, I was very pleased with the ambiance and staff professionalism.

This is not a high rise, mega-plex, super amenity, resort. This is a slice of history, with old time elegance of a smaller beachfront Inn tucked behind the dunes. Small parlor guest suites are comfortable but not lavish. The building's interior has been modestly renovated and they've retained much of the original design and features.

Event space is very nice with lots of options both in and out. Food and beverage is good, with a decent variety of choices. The upstairs penthouse bar/tapas area is "mod" which doesnt really fit with the 1920's decor of the inn, but it is a fun space. The tapas we tried were very good and the bar was stocked top shelf.

Four-poster bed was comfy and clean. HVAC was noisy but that's expected. Water pressure was weak and it took 5 minutes for water to heat up to the 3rd floor, but again not surprising and not a big deal.

If you want to go back in time and enjoy a place for what it was, then come here and appreciate this Inn. If you are into opulence go elsewhere. I will be bringing my Board here for an overnight stay and meeting. It is a perfect spot for their taste and interests.

The walls are paper thin, rooms small, and continental breakfast meek. The front desk customer service is good when they're present but not worth the price. Also, there's usually a wedding on the weekends and the penthouse bar is very loud.
