Reserved online for a quick one-night layover on the way to Daytona Beach. Called for directions and received confusing info. However, the hotel is just off I-295 (Exit 10 -then first right at the light onto Wells Road----look for the Orange Park Dog Racing Track). To our surprise, the room was clean, convenient to the highway, and near tons of restaurants and other stores. Great value for $76 double queen bed w/ microwave and mini fridge. Clean linens and flat screen tv. The chairs in the room could use updating, but they were clean. The bathroom was well appointed. The housekeeper could do a little extra scrubbing around the lower outside of the glass shower and on the wall around the toilet. The room was ready when we arrived an hour or so before check-in. Front desk staff was about a 6 on a friendliness scale of zero to 10, but obliged us quickly when we arrived. Refundable deposit for incidentals is about $50 cash, but if you use a credit card -- they will hold only about $15. We were able to put up our luggage and drive to the Jacksonville Beach for an afternoon of beach fun. Drive to the beach is about 20 minutes. We returned to the hotel and the kids played in the pool for a while (found out that the pool never really closes as long as the guest swimming don't get too loud after hours). The pool is rather small, but accommodated guests nicely. Hot tub is small as well. Towels were depleted during the kids' swim, but when I called to the front desk, someone appeared with clean pool towels within just a few minutes of my call. Basket of goodies and iced water w/ lemon available at all times for guests in the lobby. The hotel has free breakfast in the mornings. We did not partake, but it looked good-- more than just the usual continental b'fast items. Restaurants are located within a few blocks from the hotel. The mall is about a mile or so down the road from the hotel on Wells Road (left out of the hotel parking lot). Also, several fast food places near the mall area. The hotel is quiet and parking is good. I felt safe and comfortable. I would recommend for business travelers, solo travelers, and families passing through. I will return for another stay when in Jacksonville. I am posting pictures of our double queen room and also of my brother's upgraded king jacuzzi one bedroom suite.
