Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good location, good rate
I was able to get the BestBet Poker Room rate here for two nights and I was impressed with the room. Plenty of space and all the amenities you need. The hallways were a little noisy, but other than that I liked it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travel155 Clean room with comfortable bed.
First time guest at this location. Check in was quick and simple, We typically are offered water bottles but were not this check in.
Room was clean and bed comfortable. We could not tell the difference between pillows. They all felt the same, hard.
Breakfast was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barry20147 Good room not so good on food supply
The room was spacious and comfortable, and the desk personnel were friendly and responsive to requests.
However the breakfast food variety was lacking after the first day. They ran out of yogurt, fruit, and for two days the pancake machine was out of order. All this may sound trivial, but if you have young children it can be a problem.

Clean ,friendly staff and great breakfast. The staff right from the start was friendly and explained the Priority Club membership and benefits and signed me up. The room was clean and very comfortable. Nothing but good things to say about our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enzie Great Hotel
Everything was great about this hotel. It was clean, neat, decorated well, great staff, the cleanest linen and towels nice breakfast bar. The only drawback was the pool, thought it was heated, it was not. Even though it was a warm day, the pool water was still cool from the previous night's temperature. Other than that, everything was great!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler25 Occupied room
When I checked in, I was given a room key for an already occupied room. Luckily, when I entered room, no one was there, but room was in disarray. Could have been an ugly scene. Front desk seemed somewhat confused when brought to their attention. Room service (towels) gives one quick knock on door, then attempts to enter. Somewhat uncomfortable with that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timerdude99 Best place to RELAX in Jacksonville!
This Hoilday INN Express was a "one of kind" visit for us. We have never stay in Jacksonville area before and now we are planning to return soon! The staff was "Top-Rated", and our room was set-up like we were at home! It was easy to get to and from dinning areas and shopping! We even went to movie, too! The sales-manger and front desk was always ready to help in any way. I would tell all my friends who would travel to Jacksonville, that there is other friendlier , and clean, updated place to stay, than this hotel!

Amazingly, they don't have a local dry cleaner they work with for pick up and delivery of guest cleaning. And, they were unable to recommend a local shop I could go to directly. Are you kidding?

This hotel has the most wonderful staff that go above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be. When in Jacksonville this is where I will always stay. The only thing is they don't have a heated pool, hopefully my request and the request of others will change that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butterbean13 Great location near sports, restaurants, shopping
We came to Jacksonville to see the Davis Cup Tennis. This hotel was right on the Arlington expressway and just minutes from the stadium. Afterwards we ate at a nearby Olive Garden before arriving at our comfortable room. We had trouble with our heater but the staff sent someone up to our room within 10 minutes and it was soon fixed. A great breakfast in the morning and we were off to the St. Augustine Outlets. We had a great stay. Thanks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou1 Great Location and wonderful service
Being that I am not very familiar with the Jacksonville area, I booked this location because it was near the places I needed to be and I was somewhat familiar to this area.. Unfortunately the night before, one of the people that we were coming to see was in a hospital and they were moved to another hospital. I panicked because I was not familiar with how to get to the different hospital. The first thing I did when I got in was to ask about directions to the hospital. Well the clerk at the check in reassured me that it was an easy trip to the hospital and gave me precise direction to get there. Following the clerk's direction, I found the hospital easily and realized that the hospital was close to the Holiday Inn Express. I really appreciated the help they gave us during our entire stay. I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the breakfast and how well it was kept supplied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarahg Great for Business Stay!!
I needed a place to stay near the downtown Jacksonville area for an overnight business trip. The other hotels in the around were well over $100. I looked into the local Holiday Inns, found this one and loved it. The staff were friendly, and didn't mind a bit that I requested such a late check-in (due to traveling#. The room was clean, had so many extra ammenities #mini-fridge and microwave) and the bathroom was set up wonderfully. In the morning, there was a variety for breakfast from fruit to pancakes. Overall, I would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sherry18 Outstanding experience!
We would have given more than 5 stars! My son-in-law sells mattresses as his job and he said he has never slept on a more comfortable bed! We thought so too. Variety of breakfast food and beverages were outstanding. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. The pool was clean. Just a great hotel. Period. This will be "our" hotel when we visit JAX again!

the shinning light was the guy running the breakfast !!!
If you can get past the bad attitude of the check in young lady - "forgot" to put together your gold member gift -- no morning paper to be found and no one says good by when you leave - but the rate is good

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gizmoe AC/Heat Unable to Control
The people on the front desk (Emily) and Antonio (maintenance) did everything possible to rectify a lack of heat from the window unit. The service in the rooms was very poor- no soap, no shampoo, same plastic bag in ice bucket for three nights, short towells, no coffee left after servicing room. etc.
The redeeming factor is the low rate that includes breakfast. If the rate was higher, I would switch to another hotel down I 295

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary2663 Overall, a comfortable nice place to stay
The room & lobby were nicely appointed, and clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The breakfast coordinator needed help. Even on slow weekday mornings, it seemed difficult to keep breakfast items supplied, and the selection of hot items was limited: eggs, and 5-6 sausage links, no biscuits or gravy. The pancake maker was not working during our stay. On Saturday and Sunday, with much larger crowds, the breakfast buffet was mostly empty - when things were filled, people took a lot, because it was taking so long to get anything out. The only fruit available during our stay were bananas, and they always looked like they had been purchased off the "days old" table - very over ripe and bruised.

We made the reservation late but the staff made the stay awesome. They gave a free upgrade because we showed up early.Instead of making us wait like a lot of the other chains would they gave us a suite with a jacuzzi in it and made the business trip a very romantic trip too. The staff was the typical HIE professional and very friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reptilesexpress What No Fruit
Hotel was nice great customer service but please the breakfast the pancake machine did not work the sausage never got replenished ( did not want it anyhow) but to have absolutely no fruit for the 2 days I was there is a bit hard to take . Apples Bananas well lets just say below par on the breakfast but way above on the customer service staff. No Fruit Really!!!
