Ranked #84 of 133 Hotels in Jacksonville
Reviewed 7 November 2012

Obviously this hotel is not a 5 star resort. However, it was not completely disappointing either. The staff was fairly nice, not overly enthusiastic, but helpful when needed. The facility shows it's age. The decor, furniture, and quality of the rooms is old and worn. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. I did get a great nights sleep! Don't get your hopes up about the continental breakfast. It only consists of cereal, bread, danishes and fountain orange juice. Unfortunately, I am not acclimated to the Florida water, so I couldn't stomach the orange juice. Don't plan on returning, but if your looking for an affordable hotel, not far from The Landing or the stadium, this is a decent option.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled with friends

Thank you for writing the review.
We are definitely a decent price option close to the landing and the Everbank Stadium. I am pleased to inform you that now we have added muffins and cinnamon rolls along with Wheat bread to our breakfast menu. Also in cereals we have 3 different options like Honey Bunch of Oats, Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes. This is more than the requirements of the Econolodge Breakfast. It is our hope to provide more options to our valued guests.
If you decide to come back and stay with us, you will notice some changes in the rooms also.
Thank you once Again

The room was clean and comfortable. The people were friendly and helpful. It was also quiet so you could rest. If I am in the area again this is where I will stay.
Having read other reviews I had none of these problems. The wifi was a little hard to connrct to but once i got there it work well.

This place wasnt bad. The rooms could have been cleaner, but it was ok. I enjoyed the wifi. Was a little creeped out by the woman standing near my door all night. On the plus side the front desk was friendly!

We recently stayed at this property. We were in an end room and the Wi-Fi would not connect for my wife. The room was not very clean. The bed was not comfortable. Of all the rooms that were open they put us in the one next to the huge dumpster full of building materials and other garbage which made for a lovely odor. The breakfast consisted of stale dry cereal, boxed danish, and terrible tasting orange juice. I guess I shouldn't have expected much for the price, but I thought it would be as nice as all the photos they had on their site.

Although the hotel was in OK shape, it was hard to sleep because there was prostitution going on all night, the guy in the room next to us kept his door open ALL NIGHT and people were coming and going from his room. It seemed like maybe drug activity. When I spoke to the manager the next day - she was great and listened to our concerns. The other DAY staff was good too, but the night manager did not know how to work the internet system and said it was our computer that was the problem - we couldn't use the computer all night. The day manager fixed the problem with their system in the morning. The breakfast was OK, but AGAIN there was a guy who was in such dirty close it made me uncomfortable. Service during the day was good and the manager tried to please guests.

Room Tip: Not recommended unless they claen up the rift-raft problem.
