The property appears to be in the process of being renovated. The room we were in was hopefully on the list. The room was clean and comfortable. But the furniture was old and worn. The staff were as friendly as I expected and the breakfast was fully stocked.

Travelocity shared that the hotel was 5.5miles away from the Rockville concert this weekend at metropolitan complex in Jacksonville. The info was wrong! It’s was 19.9 miles from the concert facility. Had I known it was that far from the facility would have chosen another hotel. The Uber rides back and forth to the hotel were an expense that I was not intending on being so much money. Not cool. I will not use travelocity again, due to the wrong information provided about the hotel. Not cool.

The room was nice and clean, beds were comfortable. Unfortunately, the housekeeping staff didn't clean our room or empty the trash, so that was very disappointing. If we go back to Jacksonville, we'll stay somewhere else.

Good hotel close to the zoo

Pros: Breakfast was good, location was convienent
Cons: The room smelled musty, a/c needed cleaning.
Location: Close to zoo and Talbott island, cruise terminal
This hotel was perfect for our trip to the Jacksonville zoo. Its only a few minutes from the zoo and close to the cruise terminal. Its outside the city so no traffic problems but still only 20 minutes from downtown. Also close to Talbott island which was a nice surprise. The breakfast was good and plentiful. All the employees we encountered were very helpful and nice. Would stay here again!

Okay to stay at, but.....

Pros: The staff at reception, pool, hot tub, bed and pillows.
Cons: Room maintenance.
Location: Its not in the city so its quiet, there is a convenience store within walking distance, not far from the zoo and other tourist attractions.
The desk staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast had plenty to offer with a nice big area that was kept very clean. Our room was clean but lacked in maintenance care. The toilet seat was broken, the handle broke during our stay, and the carpet was wet from the air conditioning unit. We requested to not have housekeeping the day after we arrived by placing the "do not disturb" sign on the door, but by the next day we needed services. When we returned later in the evening, our rooom had not been serviced and the toilet handle had broken, we reported to the desk staff. Housekeeping did come the next day, the toilet handle was kind of fixed but we had to keep fixing. I thought they would have fixed the seat but they did not.
