The location is slightly off the beaten path of the beach resort lifestyle and nightlife, however upon arrival, we were greeted with a warm smile, very helpful and dog friendly staff. When driving North on Mayport Rd. you may think to yourself, "I'm not to sure about this location?", "looks pretty far from anything." This hotel is only a short 5 min drive south to the heart of Atlantic and Neptune Beaches with dog friendly restaurants and bars. Or 5 minute drive north to Hanna park with 5 miles of dog-friendly beach (leashes are required), or just 25 miles North to Fernandina Beach!
Victoria and Amelia (Front Desk) assisted us with all of our questions, and offered assistance directing us to all the dog-friendly restaurants and beaches. Amelia doted on our dog (Lab mix), and she even baked hand made cookies for welcoming new guests and saying goodbye to the outgoing guests.....and they were the BEST cookies I have ever had!!
Once inside, you are transported to a 4 diamond hotel in the heart of a major city. The staff went above and beyond at every request. The hotel was immaculately clean! And the housekeeping staff was friendly and conscientious, even placing our dog's toys back in her dog bed. There is a complimentary continental breakfast that offers eggs, bacon, susage, biscuts and gravy as well as all the extra goodies. We were thoroughly impressed! The staff's care and concern for their guests (including the animals) was beyond reproach and I highly recommend this location at 2040 Mayport Rd. for a weekend getaway or even just an overnight.
A special thanks to Victoria and Amelia, you really made our stay special!!
