Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by D.J. Good stay but couple of maintenance issues
Great front desk staff. Flooded parking lot upon arrival. The bathrooms do not have a vent which is unusual and can get a bit steamy when more than one person is getting ready. Overall though, a nice break in a long travel down the east coast to vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JanieDee Everything great except pricing problem
This is a very nice, updated facility. It was the best breakfast service I've experienced in many years of staying at the HIEX. The food was great and varied (nuts and raisins available for oatmeal!). The kitchen help was extraordinarily nice. The pool was clean but has nothing but chaise lounge chairs. A few regular plastic lawn chairs would be nice for those who cannot rise easily from a low chair such as the chaises. It would also be an improvement if there were a couple of umbrella tables to sit at and under shade while watching a child swim. My greatest issue was with the check-in where the rate I was quoted and bought on the internet was higher than I bargained for. The desk clerk was either unable, unwilling, or simply not empowered to resolve a pricing issue. Ultimately this cost me $52 more than I should have paid. That's too much for me, but would have been a drop in the bucket for the hotel. It gave me a disgusted feeling during the entire three-day stay in spite of the lovely staff during the day.

My room was very nice. The staff (Heather and Amber) were very, very nice. They always greeted me with a smile and offered great conversation. A dog across the hall barked all night and people hung out in front of the hotel eating and drinking beer all night for two weeks was a little upsetting/scary.
Overall the hotel experience was a good one.

Hotel staff unable and unwilling to provide guest with assistance in obtaining itemized hotel receipt. UNSAT !!. Do not recommend staying at this hotel if a receipt is needed for documenting business travel. Will not stay at this hotel in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by barry5465 Had a new floor installed at home and stayed here
This is a pretty new hotel situated on Mayport Road in Atlantic Beach. Very clean, great staff, and a good breakfast. The best place in the area to stay if you're waiting for a Naval ship to arrive or just want to get away. 1500 yard from the ocean as the "crow flies"

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jacksonville nightmare Do not stay here!
If you want to have zero sleep then this is the place for you. I complained to the front desk about all the noise, and they did nothing. I am not sure who is the night time management but.... Either they can not hear or they do not care. Yelling was going on all night. It was the worst experience I have ever had in any hotel. When I checked out the next morning, I told the front desk again about my experience. She said she would tell the manager, that was over a week ago and I have heard nothing and still had to pay full price for a horrible night. If I had not been in my car for 12 hours that day. I would have just went to my car to sleep.

I stay at Holiday Inn properties all over the country and this by far has to be the worst for WiFi connectivity. I have stayed here several times and no matter what floor or location of the room the connectivity is the worst I have ever experienced. Although the hotel and the staff are exceptional I will have to think twice before I stay here in the future simply because of this single issue. I recommend you have someone come in and either update or change your setup.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Squirrel ALB Didn't like change to Priority Club recognition
From previous visits I was greeted upon arrival as a priority club member with a goodie package. During my check-in, I didn't receive a Priority Greeting and didn't get my goodie bag. Per the agent at the counter, it is a new corporate change to not provide a goodie bag. Unsure when this changed but I don't care for the policy change and would like to get my bag on future visits. Besides this, it was a good experience and would possibly stay here in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beekeeper2 Close proximity to Mayport Naval Base
My husband and I went to visit our son at the naval base and the hotel was very close to it. The hotel was very clean, staff pleasant and we stayed in one of the king suites which allowed us to relax in a larger room with a couch and chairs. I would recommend staying here again if you are not wanting a beach front hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pc1p Good for the price
I stayed here on a business trip. The price was right and it was just enough "outside" of town that I didn't have to deal with any traffic, even when getting onto Atlantic and 295 during morning rush hour.
Upon arrival, I was concerned when I read a sign saying that the water was going to be turned off for a few hours (estimated at 2 with a max of 4) in order to complete annual testing/maintenance. Turns out, it wasn't a big deal since it happened during the middle of the day and probably didn't impact too many people. No issues there.
My room didn't have a TV remote when I first arrived, but the situation was quickly and easily fixed by a 2 minute walk up to the front desk. The room was in nice shape, though I was honestly expecting a traditional "desk" instead of a smaller coffee-table (I've been to a dozen HIE's over the past 6 months and all had had desks). No biggie really, as I still had ample space to get my evening "administrative" work wrapped up before dinner time.
One thing I will note - the stay here includes free wi-fi. However, it is probably the slowest internet connection I've ever had, sans maybe my 14.4k modem back when I had a Mac Performer 495C during the early 90's. I like to catch up on Netflix/Hulu when I'm on the road (at home, it's mostly Sponge Bob and Curious George), but the poor connection speed lead to choppy service and I gave up using the free Wi-Fi quickly. I normally travel with a 4G Hotspot but had an issue with the SIM card, which meant I was stuck watching Moon Shiners (could have been worse I guess). The next day I went to the VZW store and fixed my Jetpack and was able to get proper internet speeds with that (and thus able to catch up on my Daily Show/Colbert Report's from the previous week :) ).
All in all, I will be coming back to this area in about 6 months and will likely stay here again. Breakfast was good and on-time (I'm an early bird and hit the road by 6:20, so I need breakfast to be prompt!). The coffee was good, though the 6 large coffee carafes were rarely filled after 1 PM (I drink coffee all day). Of the three nights I stayed, one night had no coffee (6 empty carafes), the second had hot, fresh coffee, and the third had fresh, though lukewarm coffee. The hotel is about 15 minutes from Atlantic Beach and some good restaurants. Parking is easy and the lot was well marked, easy to find, and well lit.
- Fix the internet. Seriously, I checked the speed with a known server and it was BELOW 1.2 Mbps. For comparison, my cell-tower based 4G LTE Jetpack gets 11-12 (a whole order of magnitude faster!)
- Hot coffee at the coffee bar. If coffee isn't actually "served" at all hours (I'm pretty certain it is based off my experience at other Holiday Inn Expresses and the fact that there was cold creamer packs sitting next to the carafes), you should put them away as to not get the hopes up of someone who just put 400 miles on their rental in a single day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beachvol quiet, comfortable room and accommodating staff
This hotel is very quiet with comfortable rooms. The staff is extremely accommodating with customizable check-in and check-out times. I had a dog with me and there was ample room for dog walking. I was put in a very convenient room where I could go down one flight of stairs when needing to walk the dog.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KellyZ01803 A great room at a great deal!
I have stayed in this hotel in the past, just overnight. This was my first multi-night stay and I can guarantee that I will be staying in this hotel again. The staff is wonderful. I had booked a 2 queen bed room but would have been happier in a king. Well, without having to say anything, a king suite was offered to me. I asked for a taxi recommendation and was not only given the recommendation but was asked if I would like the front desk to call for me.
My suite was very comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the breakfast options. It was a very pleasant stay and I look forward to my next trip to Jacksonville!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tmulk Nice newer property
This HIE is located just west of Atlantic Beach (appx 1.5 miles)and all the fun things to do there. This being said, Mayport road on which it sits isn't the best for things to do. However, It is a newer property which is modern and clean. The staff was attentive and the breakfast was bigger than most complimentary breakfast.
My only complaint during my 2 night stay would be the inability to run the fan all the time. I like that back ground "white" noise to mask outside noises and help me sleep at night. This is especially true when your room is on the 1st floor, next to the elevator and breakfast room!!
Overall I liked the property and will return if the pricing is as good as it was for this past visit.
