When evaluating places where I stay, I always adjust my expectations according to the property and the purpose of the trip. I booked the Red Roof Inn Jacksonville Airport as a stopover while my cat and I were traveling from the Washington, D.C. region to Miami. Its convenient location off Interstate 95, its pet-friendliness and a cheap price were the main factors in my decision.
The hotel itself is tucked away at the end of an access road. The location is close to the interstate, but I wasn't bothered by noise. I stayed in room No. 103, which is next to the office. I was able to park just outside the door, which made loading and unloading extremely convenient.
The room was generally clean and well-equipped, with a flat-panel television that included two HBO channels, an in-room safe and free wifi, which worked sporadically. However, at this price, which was less than $60, I wasn't complaining.
The bed was more comfortable than I expected and the shower had copious amounts of hot water. The sheets themselves had obviously been washed many times and were leaning toward being threadbare, but they were also soft.
Some of the surfaces in the room were a bit dusty, but I don't fault housekeeping too much in a place like this, where the pressure to turn over the rooms must be high. Generally, I was pleased with the cleanliness.
The employees at check-in and check-out were also friendly.
It's a convenient spot if you need to rest your head while traveling the I-95 corridor.
