“Delivery Trucks at 5 AM!!!!!”
Reviewed 18 May 2006

Be forewarned, if you stay at this hotel, DO NOT accept a room on the back of the hotel. The Hilton Garden Inn is adjacent to a strip mall with a supermarket that has delivery trucks that arrive EVERY MORNING at 5 AM. Some mornings a lot more trucks than others. The BEEP, BEEP, BEEPING, will wake you up as will the noise of truck doors, airbrakes, etc. I asked mgmt about it and they said there was nothing they could do (and when I asked them if they warned their guests in advance, the answer was NO). If you have to stay on the back get some earplugs.

And by the way, the one morning I was there the grass cutters showed up before 7 AM and fired up their mowers and weedeaters. If you're looking to sleep in late --- look elsewhere.

The beds suck by the way. But they do serve Starbucks in the lobby complimentary. You'll need it.

Not knowing the area, I chose this location as I had read some good reviews. The hotel is located in a beautiful part of the city just minutes away from Jacksonville Beach. The room I stayed in was clean and tidy and the staff pleasant. Free internet access was a definite plus. The hotel is next to a quaint little shopping center with great stores, a Publix and nice restaurants - all in walking distance. I'd definitely stay here again. The beaches are within 15 minutes of the hotel, St. Augustine is under an hour away, and Orlando is about two to two and half hours away. All of these locations are very easy driving to get to.

I really liked this hotel and would definitely recommend it. It's in a very nice and safe location with easy access to many things.

We arrived Ponte Vedra Beach, "fleeing" from Hurricane Dennis in the Gulf. I called and made reservations ahead of time, but they could only accomodate us for one night.

From the time we arrived, until we checked out we were extremely satisfied with the Hilton Garden. A suite for 149 USD a night is good value. The suite was spacious, clean, quiet, had very comfortable beds and was generally nicely kept up. We were traveling with our two kids, and we therefore appreciated separate bedrooms/T.V's. If you're looking for a good seafood restaurant in the area, I'd highly recommend Aqua Grill (Sawgrass Village) right nearby.

The pool is a bit small, but the kids loved it!

We'll definately be back on another occasion!

This was my first time at a Hilton Garden Inn and I would put this hotel in line with Courtyard by Marriot. We were down for a two day weekend and enjoyed the area and hotel for a relaxing stay. It's about 18 miles north of St. Augustine just off of A1A near a golf course in Ponte Vedra, several miles from public beaches in a very nice, quiet, upscale area. There are some nice retaurants and pubs in an outdoor shopping pavillion next to the hotel in addition to a CVS and Publix.

The staff was courteous and helpful and the rooms very clean. The room was a King with a jaccuzzi. It had a small refrigerator, a microwave, a 2 cup coffee service, complimentary high speed LAN intenet access via wall jack (bring your own patch cable with standard male RJ45's). The connection was very fast and the network picked up my Windows XP Pro notebook without a hitch.

There were a few minor maintenance issues in the room that needed to be addressed. The light fixture cover in the bathroom was missing, the jaccuzzi had a missing air vent cover, and the jaccuzzi drain was cracked so that the water would drain out slowly with the plug in place. These didn't detract from the stay but were worth noting in an otherwise excellent room.

I was very happy with this hotel and will stay here again the next time I'm in the area.

Ponte Vedra is a beautiful area and the Hilton was a great deal. We spend 2 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn and would highly recommend the hotel. We were able to be upgraded to a spacious suite. The rooms were clean and mostly quiet. There is a pub with a patio on the ground floor that can get a bit loud, however. So I would stay on a higher floor next time or ask for a room that is not above the pub. The staff was very nice - especially in the breakfast room. Our breakfast was excellent each day.
The hotel is only 3 miles from beach access. There are plenty of grocery stores close to the hotel.
I wish the hotel had better maps and hotel recommendations for guests. Overall, a very positive experience.

Had a convention at the nearby Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, but could not get rooms so I stayed here for $89 a night and saved some $$. The hotel is seconds away from the TPC Stadium and Valley golf courses known to be some of the best in the world that the public can play. Also, the beaches are only minutes away. The hotel has a lounge that is attached, but was closed for renovation. The hotel also has a nice hot or complimentary breakfast buffet, but charges about $8 for it. This hotel is very similar to a hampton inn except for the nicer breakfast and the larger lobby, the rooms are basically the same. I would stay here again because in Ponte Vedra, there are just few options for lodging at this price.
