“Felt like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

The sitting area in the lobby though small was very homey and comfortable, a great place to have a coffee and read. There were cookies, lemonade and later chips and salsa to welcome us. In the past month we had stayed at numerous BW across the USA and this one deserved the "Plus" status. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Both the evening staff (Sherry)and the morning staff(Tami) were extremely pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room and were very pleased. No stairs or elevators to deal with

We stayed at the Best Western PLUS First Coast Inn & Suites in Yulee, FL on July 8, 2014. After driving for about 10 hours from Miami on our way back to New England, this hotel was an oasis for my fiance and I and our black Labrador to relax and get a good night sleep. Upon walking into the reception area I'm greeted with this most amazing dark wooden staircase leading to the second floor. To the right of the staircase was a little sitting area with couch and further to the right, breakfast area. To the left of the staircase was the reception desk which is where I met Tami, the nicest reception lady I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was very professional, courteous, polite, and efficient. Upon the counter, I noticed a placard informing guests that at 6pm, fresh, hot Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies and cheese nachos were available to guests at no extra charge. Then I noticed the cookies themselves...they were hot, soft, and oh so delicious! Within 9 minutes of arrival, Tami had me checked in and indicated the way to our room. To my surprise, despite having our dog with us, she said we could walk through the main lobby or utilize one of the other outside entrances. (Most of the dog friendly hotels I've stayed in before wouldn't allow dogs in the main lobby) When I told her of my surprise, she stated, 'We're a dog friendly hotel, they're allowed anywhere.' Our hotel room was situated at the back of the hotel but by no means looked like the back of the hotel. The pool access was RIGHT there! Upon arriving to our room, we delightfully discovered vaulted ceilings, big soft beds with Best Western's trademark five pillows(!), overstuffed chair, entertainment center with a flat screen tv that offered DISH (instead of minimal channels via cable), and a huge, spacious bathroom with a nice consistently HOT and heavy stream of water. The absolute best feature in this hotel is definitely the thermostat directly on the wall instead of on the air conditioning unit. PLUS!!! Since we were only staying for the night, we fell asleep rather quickly and weren't able to fully explore the hotel, but the next morning I went down to the breakfast area and was in awe of all the food selections offered. Along with the typical hot/cold cereals, there was fresh fruit, yogurt, Belgian waffles, HOT scrambled eggs, HOT home fries, and HOT sausage links all in steamer trays. There was also a vast selection of condiments offered for the toast, bagels, and muffins. Check out that morning was flawless and took no more than 5 minutes so we could get back on the road and on our way. I would like to also mention the male employee (sorry I didn't catch his name) who was very helpful in providing a can opener (which I forgot to bring) so I could feed our dog his breakfast. Every employee I met was polite, courteous, and helpful. Great stay! Will be back!! ~M.C., Preston, CT~

After riding in the rain for hours we stopped for the day. Sherry was so nice and friendly, always a smile and made you feel so at home.Our room was clean and we got a jacuzzi suite as I was cold from being wet. Jacuzzi was clean, I have seen some not.They serve cookies from 6 to 7. Tortilla chips with salsa, nacho cheese sauce, and jalapeno pepper rings,6:30 to 7:30. Nice sitting area off the lobby.Rockers sit outside on the porches. Breakfast was nice in the morning,eggs,sausage,waffles,etc.I really liked staying there and would again and I only live an hour and a half away.

The room was ok, but there was a foul odor. I paid extra for a roll-a-way bed upon arrival, but had to ask for it when we arrived. After a long day of traveling the bed should have been set up and ready in our room. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This is a very lovely Best Western conveniently located off of I 95. Check in was quick and easy. They offer cookies, lemonade and chips and salsa each night for those who want a quick little bite/drink after a long drive. The lobby is beautifully decorated and my girls loved the fully stocked vending machines. The room was quite spacious and very clean. We appreciated the quality bedding and mattress in the room. If you are ever in the area this would be a smart choice for lodging.

Clean, comfortable. Actually, this was the best motel we have ever stayed in. Lance and Sherry were very accommodating as front desk associates. We appreciated their service very much. The outside and inside building were immaculate. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

If your looking for a great room at a reasonable price this is the place to stay. The staff was very helpful and eager to please. Had a few problems getting checked in due to a computer issue but other than that everything went smoothly. The check-in clerk apologized the whole time which means that customer service ranks high on the minds of the staff. Our room was very spacious, everything was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the pillows were fluffy. Breakfast in the morning was what you would expect and for the most part was pretty good but go early or take it back to your room because the eating space is kind of small. I would stay here again and would recommend that you do to.
