Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always feel welcome! When traveling I ALWAYS look for a Holiday Inn Express! I know the rooms are clean, comfortable and the staff is wonderful. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Breakfast Enjoyed the breakfast and friendly staff. The hotel was very convenient to our final destination. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice quite out of the way place Back from the highway, small, very well run, the breakfast is a real plus. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Clean and the service was great I just want everyone to know the Lady who was working the Breakfast Bar was a breath of fresh air the first thing in the morning at 7am. She was so happy and polite.She just put a smile on your face just saying " Good Morning" and she was all willing to help and make sure you had everything you needed from silverware to butter :) i just thought she was very pleasant and its huge when you find someone who really looks like she was enjoying what she does and she was just getting the job done.She is an asset to Holiday Inn Thank you Michele September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable..... I am back to the Holiday Inn properties after going to another chain. I find the staff eager to assist and the rooms are up to date with comfortable beds. September 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liesure Enjoyed our visit and the breakfast was pretty good. The room was spacious and very comfortable August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stop Great stay, have always like Holiday Inn Express, used to be a very reasonable price. Loved the cinnamon rolls, which I can no longer eat as I am gluten intolerant. Our next stay will be in Rome Italy where we have reserved three rooms at an IGH hotel. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grannyonthego We only had a brief stay but we couldn't have asked for better service or amenities. Room was very clean & staff very friendly & welcoming. Also great location for the business we were there for. Will stay there again. August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel atmosphere and comfort This facility was very clean, rooms were adequate and the value was good. The hotel atmosphere lacked the ambience and quiet I was looking for. The other guests just seemed to be too busy which took away from my ability to relax and get a food nights sleep. After tossing and turning for several hours I got up, dressed and left the hotel before they opened the breakfast area, so I grabbed a bagel and yogurt and left. August 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poor breakfast At 7:30am, half of the breakfast items where gone and not being re-stocked. Poor service in this area. August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service This is a nice hotel. We like to stay in Holiday Express Hotels as we have always had good luck with them and this one was among the best of them. Nice large TV, clean room, comfortable bed and pillows. Separate area with pull out couch and table. A very comfortable room. I just wish I was able to connect to the internet, this was the first time I could not at one of their hotels. August 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We love Holiday Inn Express! EXCEPT We love Holiday Inn Express! EXCEPT when they don’t serve their signature sausage gravy for breakfast. Our most recent stay at the Yulee Holiday Inn Holiday Inn Express was another great experience except for breakfast. The room was very spacious, the bed very comfortable and the pool was warm and clean. Our check-in and out was flawless and the staff very helpful. August 5, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor internet, fitness room equipment didn't work The internet service was very slow. No problems getting connected, just very slow. The TV in the room did not work initially, but was easily fixed (something in back was disconnected). The TV in the fitness room did not work (turned on but got zero channels) and the staff could not get it to work. One of the two treadmills didn't work at all, and the other one had to be reset (plus some of the buttons on the control panel didn't work right). Very average breakfast selections. One of the smaller selections I've seen recently. August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay Comfortable room at a great price. Will stay here the next time we visit Yulee, FL. August 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Condition of the chairs The room, the staff, and the hotel were very nice overall. However, the chairs (2) looked like something had been spilled on them (maybe milk??) and they were not cleaned. We felt like we needed to put something down on the seats before sitting down. July 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly service, a bit overpriced. Staff made us feel welcomed. But, the hotel is a bit overpriced considering the location and the of year. July 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice on the outside, Rooms need painting Staff was friendly, common areas nice. Our suite needed painting, walls were dirty and in need of refresh July 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay at HI Exp Fernandina Beach An excellent stay from on-line reservation through check-out. Clean, friendly, comfortable, up-to-date. Price was a good value, too. One of our best hotel/motel experiences in the past couple of years. July 18, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Parking The hotel was nice and very clean but the parking spaces are limited....especially during the 4th of July. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent property and service. Really enjoyed our sray and we will return often. Even the rainy weekend did not dampen our spirits. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by topnotch! Very good value and as usual for Holiday Inn very relaxing quiet stay. Highly recommend this motel for those who are visiting Amelia island! July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service and Value Rooms are always exceptionally clean, check in and staff are very good, staff is helpful, and rooms are very comfortable. Very easy access to I95 July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Holiday Express My wife and I enjoyed this hotel very much. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. The front desk staff were polite and helpful. Thanks for a relaxing night. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Thank you for honoring the military rate. Check in was quick and the room was excellent. Great Value. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great sleep Very well organized property. We were treated well, the facility was clean and we had a great nights sleep with a great breakfast bar the following morning. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stayed during vacation travel During family vacations we travel to visit family and the distance requires we stop in route - we almost always look for a Hoilday Inn Express. The rooms are dependable in the amentities and cleanliness. Rate are a bit higher than I think they should be, but with my family in tow I go with what I know will be satisfactory. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Choice with great location The hotel is just off 95 in before the Jacksonville traffic. We were on our way to Naples from NC for our Grandson's graduation and choose this hotel to break up the drive to be more manageable. The room was comfortable, good bed and very quiet. The breakfast was excellent with many selections to choose from. They even had a takeaway bag in case you were in a hurry. The breakfast lady was helpful and took pride in her job, keeping the food full and tables clean. I recommend this hotel as it is one of the better stays we have had. June 2, 2014
