Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Jacksonville South

Reviewed 27 February 2012

Looks like one of the newer Holiday Inns, but renovations haven't been done inside. Rooms are small, breakfast area is small, tubs are small, beds are small. Air conditioning loud and thermostat doesn't work correctly.

Staff could use some training in basic customer service. Check-in desk employee was more interested in watching whatever was on TV behind the wall then getting my room correct or giving me any information at all on the property.


On the plus side: Location was easy to find and the mini-fridge worked great and was a good size.


Better hotels in the area, go a couple more exits on the highway and find one.

Holiday Inn Express has been my favorite for two years. The personnel was very helpful, rooms very clean, and the location was superb-right off the interstate. I will continue to book reservations with this chain-I'm never disappointed. Good Job Guys!!!!!

I actually call this home because I work in the area. The staff & management are friendly & courteous. They keep the grounds & property very clean. I love the rooms with a kitchenette & full size refrigerator. I would recommend all who want to stay at a friendly place at reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Make sure you have transportation to get around.

The hotel and room were clean; the environment was quiet and restful. The location is convenient to I-95, but not the city or beaches. I will likely be staying here again when I am in the area.

We arrived late about 11pm and tired. It was my birthday weekend and to my surprise the staff congraulated me on arrival I though that was so nice of them to remember.The room they had on hold for me was not the one I wanted. They immediatly change it and gave me a welcome gift bag for being a P.C. member. The staff was so nice, I had a nice stay. Thanks..

Nothing particularly wrong with this hotel, just nothing particularly outstanding either. Staff was helpful, location was good. Property is starting to show some signs of age and will soon, if not already, need a refurbishing. Fairly clean, no real complaints, just starting to look a little shopworn.
