“Nice property close to highway”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The hotel is pretty nice. I had an executive suite which was very compact but clean and modern. It's located near Amelia Island, a short drive from Jacksonville and right next to the highway. The pool is tiny but good for a quick dip. My only real complaint is that my room was right next to an ice maker and it was continuously making ice all night (very loud). The breakfast wasn't very good--lacking pastries. They did have waffles, bagels, cereal etc. Overall, good value. It's not a $400/night beach hotel but is comfortable and affordable. Next time I'd look closer to Jacksonville Beach but it was a busy weekend due to a golf tournament so most hotels were booked and very expensive.

A very nice hotel, only about 4 years old. Our room was large and very comfortable. Everything was very clean. Bed linens, mattress and pillows comfortable and spotlessly clean. Pool area and workout room were nice and well maintained. Breakfast was substantial and good, although the eating area was not large. The rocking chairs on the front porch were a nice touch and I wish I had been able to enjoy one with my morning coffee but didn't have time. My only complaint was the powerful fan speed on the ac unit. Even on the lowest setting it was too much for me. There was a separate thermostat so I could control the temp, but I would have preferred being able to turn the fan speed down more. PT. 05/09/2014

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and enjoyed the convenience of being close to the lobby and entrance. Ha...

Worst Best Western PLUS hotel we have ever been in. Should be called a Best Western MINUS. The room itself reminds you of a Motel 6 setting. The bed had very thin, well worn sheets and continued to come off the beds during the night. The lobby looked nice but the rooms were a different story. Breakfast was what we would call below average and not near as good a other PLUS hotels we have stayed. People were nice and location near interstate worked fine

Great guest service, really nice lobby, nice pool area, Super clean everywhere. Rooms were super comfortable and had nice down comforters and great beds. I am a light, problem sleeper and slept like a baby. 15 minutes from Fernandina Beach and restaurants. Highly recommend

Room Tip: Get a room away from the pool and on the upper floor. The property is new and the windows open!! So...

This BW was clean and comfy. Good value for the money. Breakfast area small, so go early. They did not have any fresh fruit, which would have been nice. The pool had only one table with chairs and they could use another one. The area is small, but it was clean. We were in the area for the Shrimp Festival, which was a bust, but at least the room was comfortable and I would stay there again.

Comfort, cleanliness and customer service have to be the three most important things when traveling and we'd like to thank you for noticing we provide them all. It is so wonderful to hear when a guest is happy and have enjoyed their stay. We are sorry to hear that the seafood festival was not what you had expected, but pleased to hear you enjoyed our hotel. I will share you comments with the team and we look forward to serving you again the next time you are visiting the area.

Be careful if you book this hotel! We had to cancel due to being unable to drive in storms and floods, and they would not waive their cancellation charge. Best Western customer service asked them to waive the charges and they STILL would not do so. Very customer-unfriendly!

Dear Boomergirl202,

We are sorry to hear we were unable to cancel your reservation, as we have no control over third party reservations (ie booking.com, expedia.com). We are sorry that booking.com was unable to cancel your reservation and hope that this will not effect what you think of our hotel. We do our very best to make sure our guests enjoy their stay here with us, and we apologize you were not able to experience this do to the big rain storm.

Just need a room for an overnight stay. Nice hotel and room in a small town. The AC was quite noisy. Nice small breakfast bar lack of sausages and bacon. Ran out of coffee. Had to tell server we need some.
