I stayed here with my family last week and it was a nice hotel overall, but I've stayed at nicer Candlewood Suites in other areas that have better hospitality, and a better in house DVD / movie collections. Otherwise everything was great. The hotel is right off I295 on the East Side of Jacksonville and fairly close to the Beach and about 10 to 15 minutes from the Zoo. There is a Publix right next to the hotel too and there are restaurants relatively close. Pricing is pretty good and they have a large pantry you can charge items to your room if you get hungry or thirsty at any hour. I've stayed at nicer hotels in Jacksonville, but there is nothing bad or that would keep me away from here if I needed to stay here again. Also if you are scared of larger bridges there is a fairly larger suspension bridge just north of the hotel on I295 you might have to go across to get to the hotel unless you plan to go around it to one of the other many bridges in Jacksonville going across the river. You can go to google street view to see it if you need too. Please vote this review helpful if it helped you in any way. Thanks!
