Maggie, Jamie, and Michelle at this Best Western could not have been more pleasant or accomodating. They went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They arranged for us to have a whelchair as my son came with a broken leg and where always available for assistance.

Fron desk staff were very professional. Houskeeping was less than acceptable. The cleaning was not complete. Haphazard .... some days better than others. Beach location was Great! Best rooms definitely beachside. Small parking areas.

could not be a better location on the beach. Great parking, nightlife and restaurants within walking distance. An ocean pier and shopping close. A very professional staff always makes the stay great..

Stayed one night at this Hotel and had an Oceanfront room. Nice location with easy access to the Beach. Small parking lot, so not sure if there is enough room for everyone during busy times. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Not much privacy from neighbors while on room balconys. Lobby dining area is small, but basic options were available....

Small and busy hotel with a good location but antiquated rooms. The hotel needs retrofitting from top to bottom. The beach is at your doorstep which was nice. Nice variety of restaurants nearby to chose from and an A-B-C Liquor Store too. Could be a great hotel once BW spends some $$.

Hotel is ok, nothing fancy. Breakfast was standard continental fare. Staff was excellent & helped me with everything, including restaurant recommendations. Location is perfect if you are into the Jax Beach party scene or the beach (when the weather is right).

Was very pleased to get a room upgrade on check in with loyalty program- glad I had not reserved an oceanfront room to begin with! Lobby and breakfast area quite small. Not able to sit for breakfast, only about 4 tables- did carry breakfast to room. A tray would have been helpful. Room was spacious and clean but needs updating....

If you are one who wants a great location near the beach with restaurants and bars within walking distance - then this is the hotel for you. The beds and pillows are comfortable. We stopped here after a long day of driving in the rain. We were tired and looking for peace and quiet. That is not what we got....

Best location on the beach and the stuff excels at customer service. Great beach front views. Enjoy. Walking distance to all the beach front restaurants and bars, spectacular view of the piers and Jacksonville Beach.

I was thoroughly impressed with the staff and hotel! I was traveling with a group of 8 from Norfolk for work, and the staff bent over backwards to assist us. The hotel is immaculate, and the jacuzzi tubs are a plus. Thanks to Jamie and her staff for a great stay.
