On the outside, this Residence Inn looks like many other older Residence Inn properties. Looks can be deceiving. This property is brand, spankling new on the inside. We were pleased with everything at this property from breakfast to the evening social hour. The rooms are fresh with the latest Residence Inn renovation attributes throughout the unit in which we stayed. Kudos to the breakfast crew. Great variety. Great service. Great quality. Kudos also to the desk clerks. Very professional and hospitable. We were very pleased.

Room Tip: Building 24 is the latest building to undergo renovation.

My wife and I stayed recently at this freshly renovated Residence Inn. We came to Jacksonville for an evening at a theater and the next day shopping in the area and we found this hotel to be very conveniently located off the I-95 and with easy access to the main avenues. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We stayed at a 2 bedroom suite, which very nicely appointed with brand new furnishings. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely request a room closer to the front of the hotel area, as the back buildings are adjacent...

I stayed here a couple nights during a business trip and was very impressed with my accommodations. It's an older Residence Inn, but they were in the final stages of a complete renovation with a bright, modern decor and technology-friendly rooms. The lobby and dining area weren't quite done when I was there, but it looked like that area will be equally as nice. Plus, the service was great and probably the homiest of any chain hotel I've stayed at in awhile. A definite recommendation!

Our family of 4 (my husband and I and our two sons, aged 22 and 19) stayed here for one night. The hotel is being renovated, but our room had not been done yet. Although the furnishings were a bit dated, everything was very clean and in good repair.

It had a large kitchen (for a hotel room), a nice sitting area with a fireplace and sofa bed, and a decent-sized desk with several outlets for chargers, etc. The kitchen was equipped with enough basic pots, pans, dishes, etc., that you could make a simple meal such as spaghetti.

The bathroom was quite bare bones, and will benefit from the renovations, I'm sure, but it was set up with the sink outside of the toilet/shower room, which was helpful with 4 of us trying to get dressed and out of the room in the morning.

There was a nice full hot breakfast included with the room. The hotel had a decent pool and whirlpool, an adequate exercise room, and a small basketball court. There was a barbeque area near the pool, with a large wood deck, two gas grills, and a built-in work/serving counter. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here with my husband and 8-year-old son for a few nights while visiting nearby family. There's not much to do around this area, but that didn't matter to us. The hotel was clean, and the staff extremely friendly. We had a nice suite with a sofa sleeper for our son. Didn't use the fireplace as it was too hot. There was a nice sized kitchenette. Wifi worked, but had to call an 800-number to get it reset. They provided a nice hot breakfast every morning. In addition, the night we arrived they served dinner! That was sure a welcome surprise after traveling all day. There is a basketball court, which is unusual, and you could check out a ball from the front desk. I was told that this hotel was going to be remodeled very soon. All in all, it served our needs and was reasonably price, and I would stay here again.

I really like this property although the parking can be difficult and it's a little off the beaten path. However it's quiet and nice, and the staff are out of this world. In the winter you can burn logs in the fireplace, which given the right companion would be lovely.
