Reviewed 14 April 2014

We stayed here for three nights in March for a wedding that was up the road in Neptune Beach.
I checked out a number of hotels in the area and found that this Marriott had received good reviews. I found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Being right on the ocean of course made it a nice place to stay. I just wish the weather was warmer to enjoy the beach. It also has a nice pool and hot tub. The rooms I thought were on the small side but comfortable and clean. The hotel lobby was under construction at the time so I did not eat in their makeshift restaurant. But when it is completed (with a Starbucks) it looks like it will be a nice place to sit and a have a coffee or cocktail overlooking the ocean

I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Jacksonville Beach, FL.

Grear hotel, literally on the beach and very close to anything you could need. Staff were friendly, the rooms were large and clean. The bed was big and comfortable. The facilities were excellent including the new bistro opening out onto the beach.

Ask for an ocean view when booking.

My husband frequently visits Jacksonville for business and when I can, I join him and we stay at this property for a long weekend. The pool/courtyard area is very nice. They light tiki torches and an outdoor fire out at night which gives a beautiful ambience. The rooms are standard but just fine. The balconies overlook the ocean and the pool are, a gorgeous view that we enjoy every day of our stays. We bring our bikes and enjoy riding around the area and down the beach. There are many dining choices around, some very very, good such as Metro Diner, which was featured on DDD. Rhe breakfast is great and not over priced. Internet works great in the room. There is a small shop to buy drinks, snacks, toiletries, and even beer and wine. If you are visiting Jax beach area, this is a great place to stay.

I've stayed at several hotels lately and this was hands down the best. Worth the higher price. Very clean, down to the elevators, lobby bathrooms, stairwells, pool area and most importantly the room. ALL Staff were extremely friendly. Awesome breakfast buffet with fresh fruit and gourmet Omelets. Renovations were not on inconvenience.

Nice, newer Oceanfront property on the extreme north end of Jacksonville Beach. At 16th Ave., North, it is a long way from downtown Jax Beach and from the excellent restaurants in Atlantic Beach. Difficult to walk. Nice pool area, tiki bar, casual restaurant and small bar, quiet. Parking was definitely an issue - but overflow is allowed in the Fairfield Inn across the street. Renovation of the lobby/restaurant scheduled to be done by April 1, 2014. Looks like that will be a major improvement.

I'm not a big fan but my husband stays there often for work (with a couple days extension for pleasure). The rooms are Courtyard decorated but the common areas and lobby are outdated. It's probably great for people coming to Florida for a beach hotel but it could use some updating.

Some rooms open to an outdoor hallway, which is a problem when it's raining, but they have a better view than the room in the center building.

It's fine but not special for me because I do not appreciate the beach ambiance. Husband loves it because of the beach access.

The staff are easy going.
Elevators slow.
Pretty outside entrance.
Restaurant is being updated now, which is good
Balcony is a nice plus

Going there this weekend.

Room Tip: many of the rooms are accessible by open outdoor hallways (no AC or rain protection) but the center...

Everyone was nice. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean, smelled clean. Bartender inside was a sweetheart and the guy outside was extremely friendly. No complaints at all. Located in the heart of the strip you are walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and bars. The only negative was the parking. Tough to find a spot but we got back after 11:00 so I'm sure it was pretty full

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront. If not you are looking at the parking lot.
