The attendant was friendly and on point The bar/restaurant area was nice but we didn’t eat or drink on this stay nor did we use the pool area but it looked nice as well as did the grounds The issues were the smell in the hallways, and the room was very dated

Our shower had been badly cracked (24″ or more) and a very sloppy silicone patch was applied The shower pan was also very weak and felt as if it were ready to fall through I can definitely see why the halls have a funky smell The mattress springs could be felt when getting in and out of bed and my wife’s back bothered her all day after sleeping on it I would pass this location and go to the one at Jax beach We loved our stay there a few months ago


Would have given more stars but I want to be very clear about this

THE BEDS ARE HARD AS A ROCK Came into town for a couple days for a medical issues after sleeping on this bed we have decided to cancel our stay and head home In more pain then before we came If you want to sleep on a brick then this is the perfect placeEverything else was clean and fine

Matthew Buchanan

Pros:- Lobby and common areas maintained- Staff friendly- Breakfast was good valueCons:- Rooms and interior corridors were extremely dated and the room smelled strongly of a harsh cleaning chemical For $170 a night I expect more out of a Marriott property

It was great excellent beds, slept like a baby! Breakfast was really good too with lots of variety Update: one week after writing this I discovered that I forgot my tablet in the hotel room I called and they didn’t have it immediately but a few days later I got a call the my tablet had been found and they wanted to know where to send it! 5 more stars for honest employees!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your room This web site will compare hundreds of hotel sites and usually will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t regret itStaff was so nice and the facility was so clean The workout room was great – only wish that the workout machines were connected to wifi Sorry to have missed the heated salt water pool – didn’t have enough time Love the complementary water bottles at the front desk – traveling can make me so thirstyAloft rooms are European minimalistic I’d say Clean lines and prudent use of space – a couch below TV screen and in between tables, combined closet and sink space open to bath and toilet area, which can be closed off with a pocket door – can seem a bit tight but it’s perfectly fine


I loved this hotel and will definitely choose this hotel again when visiting Jacksonville First, the pet friendly policy is very nice and we loved being able to bring our dog with us for no extra charge The king sized bed was very comfortable with soft white sheets and pillows

Absolutely loved the full feature smart TV that allowed us to stream our favorite netflix shows when relaxing in our roomThe location was wonderful with many restaurants near by A Starbucks was also in the same plaza which was very convenient My stay was also very quietMy only complaint is the way the bathroom shower is designed, it has a deep slant for the drain so it can be a bit dangerous when wet I did almost slip when getting in but there is a rail in the shower so just be careful Otherwise great hotel!

Vincent Trabucco

Aloft is truly a pleasure to stay! The staff is extremely polite (Mike) was so helpful when I wasn’t feeling well and made sure I had everything I needed one night, truly went above and beyond The decor gives you that modern upscale feel, room was very spacious and extremely clean But the best part is the amazing bar/lounge with the sweetest bartender (Cam) who can whip up the best cocktails and shots, not to mention her infamous honey pepperoni pizza! She embodies what aloft is all about, making you feel at home away from home! If you’re ever in Jax and looking to make the most out of your stay don’t hesitate to choose Aloft

I’ve been planning on making reservations at this hotel I was in town and decided to drive by and just check it out Mr

Jackson greeted me (Front desk supervisor) He gave me brochures for the spa and hotel, and he gave me a full tour of the facility He was fantastic and professional He was thorough and told me all about the place He showed me the pool area, dining area, room types, and views He was very welcoming and knowledgeable That kind of service makes all the difference in the hotel you choose to spend your 3-day weekend I will definitely be staying here It exceeded my expectations of class and quality 💯

Larry Tallis

It seems that every time we eat at the Lodge and Club the computer generated check always overcharges us It happened again this past week The overcharge came out to be in the neighborhood of 15%

If it was an isolated experience I certainly wouldn’t be writing about it We brought it to the attention of the waiter who had his manager correct it If the check was hand calculated I probably wouldn’t have thought much about it But the computer is programed to put the cost of items onto the check I hate being taken advantage of! Secondly, two days ago I ordered a drink from the bar No big deal Vodka, triple sec and lime juice From the corner of my eye I saw the bartender pouring water into the drink Is this the definition of a watered down drink? I think so With an exploding population in the area, a wait list for membership, management is in my opinion really squeezing every dollar it can get Shameful! Will I eat at the Lodge again? Probably not Will I buy drinks at the Lodge? Probably not Why am I still a member? Simple! Not many other options to consider and the buy in is not transferable And then, if I really want to be picky the chairs at the trellis should have been replaced two years ago because they are saggy and worn out

Hilary Reinhardt

The Oasis has THE WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE I have received better service at Walmart All of the employees completely ignored us

It was a free for all for seating No one told us to check in with the hostess cause they were all too busy not making eye contact with us I had to call the front desk to get the manager (the suit) who then refused to let us order We are spending $800 a night for a room And this is the service they have Will not be coming back here Please Plenty of other options to stay at on the beach

Recently stayed here for a friend’s birthday weekend Great location! Easy access to beach Walking distance to many restaurants/bars

Lemon Bar is right on site, which was very fun We did stay here with my 2 year old—the roll away bed offer was perfect for him and the music at the bar did stop around 9 pm so he could sleep just fine, but it’s pretty loud in the rooms when going on The front desk service was excellent Beds comfy and I liked there was a microwave and small fridge available for my son’s food/milk Even though the area is extremely busy and parking looks unavailable, the guys working the lots always kept spaces available for guests so as long as we had parking pass, they would save spots Everyone was so nice

My husband and I stayed for four days at this wonderful hotel and wish we could have stayed longer Everything about the hotel was excellent from the staff to the room, the pool, the location and of course the beach And the affordability

For an upgrade to an oceanfront room ( which is so worth it) it’s still so much less than what we’d expect for what is included and available The room was clean and the beds extremely comfortable Perhaps what I appreciated most about this hotel was the customer service Every single person working there would greet you with a hello or a “hope you are enjoying your stay “ and front desk always seemed to remember who you were We had a problem with our room which the hotel dealt with and compensated us for the inconvenience There are too many positives of this hotel but needless to say, we would most certainly highly recommend it to others Perhaps the only suggestion I would make would be to carefully label all food items in the breakfast buffet On one morning I suspected that the scrambled eggs had cheese in them due to their lovely creamy texture but the label did not indicate so Since I cannot eat dairy for medical reasons I asked the wonderfully kind chef/manager of the buffet and discovered that they did have dairy but he was so accommodating and prepared some regular scrambled eggs for me Thank you Hampton Inn and we hope to see you again!

My wife and I stayed here last week and it was an outstanding experience Quick check in, clean room with an amazing ocean front view and very friendly, helpful staff that will go out of their way to assist making your experience thoroughly enjoyable It’s steps to the beach and that’s why we chose it

The pool was huge and clean with lots of recliners available to just lie out in the sun, relax and have a cold one The breakfast was wonderful and plentiful, with good variety The restaurant and bar was great too and even had evening live entertainment! Complimentary coffee was always available We travel the Caribbean frequently and this hotel had the vibe of an all inclusive resort A great place to stay in JAX Beach!

Rosie G

Oceanfront view was spectacular -beautiful to watch the sunrise The room had a standard microwave and small refrigerator The bathroom could use some improvements – the shower head was not completely affixed to the wall, the tub needed resurfacing and the faucet dripped

The front desk staff members were cordial, not overly friendly but professional The kitchen staff and housekeeping teams were very nice, helpful and pleasant to engage with The pool area is clean The parking lot was full during my visit luckily there was an extended parking area across the street The outside tiki bar area was a nice space to grab a bite or a refreshment for the beach The beach of course was amazing!

I have been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few days you definitely won’t be let downWe stayed one night at the hotel We have stayed in many hotels much more expensive and not had as pleasant an experience and great nights sleep We recently bought a very expensive mattress and their mattress was even more comfortable The room was very clean, Newly renovated, and the hotel is very quiet The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful We requested a microwave it was delivered within five minutes I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel The breakfast was not included but they had a very extensive continental breakfast for seven dollars or a full breakfast buffet for $15 for adults It is pet friendly but you would never know it by any odors or noise

I needed a place to stay because I had to wait 2 weeks for my apartment to be ready but that was also close to work and I must say, the experience was absolutely wonderful The rooms were clean, the staff was very kind, helpful and accommodating The breakfast and food in general is also quite exceptional, I enjoyed the low key ambiance and drinks and I couldn’t have asked for a better transitional place to stay than here

Whether you’re here on vacation or in my position and needed a place to stay, I highly recommend this place

Nancy Zotto

I want to thank the friendly front desk staff Cintya, Ryan, Abby, Kaitlin, Emily, and Faith they were all extremely attentive to all our needs When we needed extra towels they were sent up immediately, when we ordered room service it was sent up quickly We always stay at this Sheraton when we are in Jacksonville because of the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms, location and the staff

Also the chef always makes a delicious homemade soup of the day! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

Travelers beware if you’re booking for the next few weeks We were not informed that there would be massive construction going on while we stayed The hotel knew we were going to be booking a red eye flight in and would be getting in early Saturday morning and they said nothing of the construction

When we arrived it was impossible to sleep due to the hotel construction Jack hammering to the left, right, above, and below us There would have been no point in switching rooms The construction was happening throughout the hotel We were greeted with saw dust and construction Mats down everywhere Our bathtub was falling apart and the water pressure sucked The staff was unfriendly and appeared more interested in socializing with themselves than helping guests that were clearly from out of town Save yourself the money and book at a holiday inn for a hundred dollars less/per night In fact You may even have a more pleasant stay overallAlso the hotels comments in other peoples reviews demonstrate their complete and utter lack of care for their guests A discount should have been offered for the stay They should have sent out notification emails to all parties booking during their construction period But instead they overlooked all of that for a profit And are insisting in the comments “we hope you come back to see the finished product” What a joke Why would you come back to see the product when you were ripped off during your stay due to their renovations? I will forever be telling people to never book from this hotel again And they should have the decency to heavily discount their rates during construction or shut for the remainder of their renovation But charging above average rates for the worst sleeping conditions you can imagine is insane*****Update******After posting this review I received a new bill with a discount I’m pleased that they made the situation right and hope in the future they will be more transparent with their guests before booking

Surprise! Very loud construction above our bed started at 9am

this is not a 4 star hotel tub was peeling we could feel springs in the bed pillows were flat no curtains only sheers horrible experience!!! Because we made our hotel reservation without our Hilton Honors plan, the hotel did not honor our complaints Would not recommend this hotel ever!

Suzanne Vickers

BEWARE OF CONSTRUCTION!!! We stayed there a month ago for a wedding Bride and family were surprised that hotel was under construction and the room block was effected Some communication to guests would’ve been nice and a great warning to at least let us know what to expect

I would never stay at a hotel for that price for the quality eitherThe dust from the construction causes health issues to everyone in my family, the beds were uncomfortable, and the walls were super thin

After looking for various venues to have my daughter’s wedding, we landed upon Paola at One Ocean Paola assured me that the resort would deliver my expectations and desires flawlessly as I know she knew I was a stickler for details! I / we couldn’t have been happier with our experience The hotel is beautiful, rooms are very nice for out of town guest, and the venue is fantastic

Having said that, the staff was plentiful and very attentive to all of our needs and wishes They did special things that were never discussed to let us know they cared about our experience, and it wasn’t lip service, but rather a dedicated staff with attention to details I had 3 main requirements that I don’t mind sharing: Outstanding service, excellent food served hot, and for my guests to be served simultaneously and quickly They deliveredI cant say enough good things about my experience and I have done this several times with various country clubs and resorts, so I know what to expect To go even further, the valet parking people even got to know us by name and they were on it when I thought they might not be able to handle the volume of cars for our pretty large wedding So, if you are thinking of One Ocean as a wedding venue, I tip my hat to them and gladly give them 5 Stars, especially my daughter Coming from me, this is huge, as I am a facility person and can tend to be critical of things If you choose them for a venue, I believe you will be impressed and I strongly endorse them (and I have been everywhere) I plan to use them for other upcoming business functions as a result!

Kate Hoffmann

Perfect service The best service and employee attitude of being helpful and ‘nothing is a problem’ and ‘let me take care of that for you’ I have seen in 25 plus years anywhere in the USA I have worked in the service industry and my family owned hotels and restaurants- so I know and do excellent service

EVERYONE at ONE was this excellent Trent, Glen, Toni- I am and was very impressed I was there at a conference- we stayed 4 days I mentioned many of us drink tea, so the hot water container was small She brought a second one and by the next morning changed furniture so they could fit a big hot water container These details and going to any length to make the customer happy are WONDERFUL I have told people about this place The company who organized our conference got so many positive reviews, that we are coming back next year! They have never done that- we usually skip a year or never go backTHANK YOU FOR RESTORING MY BELIEF IN HUMANITY That there are more people like me and my friends who still care and serve and enjoy making other people happy!!!

Britt E

Amazing experience at One Ocean, as always We choose to come here once a year and it never disappoints The beach is beautiful and never overly crowded (plus, the beach chairs + umbrella that are included are an amazing perk)

The quaint beach town, which is right outside the hotel, has everything you need + more Cute coffee shops, tons of restaurants, bars and lots of friendly locals Marla and Trent at the front desk went above and beyond to ensure we had the best trip yet! We can’t wait to go back again! Thanks, One Ocean!

Beautiful hotel with everything you need Family friendly Kids wanted to stay longer but only had a 1 night stay as we continue our road trip

Clean, modern, comfortable and spacious rooms, good breakfast they had a chef make fresh eggs from the days’ menu item, nice staff, great pool and super close to the beach Note, the pool although outdoors it is covered overhead so has an indoor/outdoor feel which we thought was differentin a good way! 🙂 Thank you for a wonderful stay

Peggy Lawing

What a great place to stay!Modern decor, extra clean friendly staffGreat rooms We got a suite, was so nice for two night stay Plenty of room

Breakfast with real plates Highly recommend!Thank you front desk for the awesome upgrade to balcony room

This hotel is in a great location with a very short walk to beach near the lifeguard station and nearby restaurants & bars Our room was quite spacious with a small kitchenette Everything was super clean and still smelled brand new

Lots of great amenities, including complimentary bikes, drinks during the week, delicious brunch, all day coffee & flavored water Josh was especially helpful and friendly – when our flight was unexpectedly delayed, he gave us a long extended checkout time so we could enjoy the beach and then relax & shower in our room before we headed to the airport

The positives – the rooms are clean and nice and feel modernThe negatives – you feel like they are purposely trying to inconvenience you No drink machines on the floors

You are forced to visit the shop in the lobby for all drinks which is not convenient and especially if you have kidsWhere would you expect the towels for the pool? At the pool? or at the check-in desk? Well, you have to go to check-in desk which is not even on the pool level, so when you get out of the pool you cannot get towels unless you ride the elevator up a floor to the lobby, and while others are checking in, ask the staff for towels That’s just weirdNo microwaves in the rooms An oceanfront room, priced like this, and no microwave?No room service and the restaurant is extremely slow and the food is mediocre at bestI get it It’s a gimmicky resort-style hotel that wants to push you into all it’s amenities for extra revenue, but it’s a hassle and makes the experience less-than-comfortableCool location, but not convenient enough to come back I’d rather opt for the Hampton Inn beachfront and have an expected hotel experience

C Williams

We had a wonderful stay beginning of April The weather was beautiful (a little windy) The room was very clean and comfortable The food was amazing and drinks as well

Every employee we came in contact with were super friendly!! I read some reviews saying the pool had no sun by noon We did not have that issue, the side of the pool by the hotel had no sun around 1:30 but there was plenty of sun on the other side Pool was never to full to not find a chair We were able to walk to many bars/restaurants and shops If I had anything to say that may be negative was there is only 1 hook for wet clothes and towels and there was no microwave in the room (there was a fridge) so we had to throw out any left over food that we purchased but Definitely not a big deal

Nikki Mikkelson

The only reason I’m giving any stars, is because my room was absolutely beautiful and clean The view was breathtaking First of all, my room was an hour late, and I was there on business, so I lost an hour of work

We went for dinner on the second floor balcony, and I eventually got very chili, so we went to the first available table inside Jacob came to ask if I was lost, and I noticed the hostess staring over my way Jacob expressed that I was sitting in his station I apologized and explained that it was very cold out and the bar was full He then went to go get my food that I had already ordered, and brought no utensils or napkins I had to eat with my hands He didn’t even check to see if my partner or I needed anything For the amount of money we paid for our overnight visit, customer care could have been so much better For this, I probably will not come back

It is quiet, they offer an outdoor pool and a very nice indoor gym Everything is convenient There is a complimentary breakfast each AM with a very nice auto-pancake making machine that requires one to simply press a button They make computers available in the lobby and have a nice amount of public seating and convenient and free parking They take pandemic precautions and it is easy to obtain additional trash liners and towels with no problems whatsoever The room is truly beautiful and the restroom and stall shower are also gorgeous and all bar soaps were replaced recently with even more convenient and nice liquid soaps and conditioners in machines both at the sink and shower The rooms have a lovely divider that separates the entrance from the room for further privacy, new carpeting and the rooms with two queen beds have a beautiful bench for sitting right next to the outdoor window with plenty of light, convenient for viewing television There is also a very adequate work desk and office chair, and a flat hard wood beautifully colored bench for luggage There is a large closet, a microwave and even a safe with codes for guest use that can be changed Mr Jerry does his very best to ensure the staff is uniformly pleasant and professional I am pleased to recommend the hotel and its convenient to the St Johns Shopping Town Center and also to many medical facilities of which the latter was the reason for my stay They also offer luggage racks by the door for guests who don’t wish to carry a larger number of suitcases to their rooms I have been to this hotel 4-5 times and had a very nice experience during each visit, consistent and pleasant I do wish they offered omelettes each AM at breakfast, and all day long hot water and coffee/tea, but its the ONLY point I can make that I would love if they modified, and I include this so the reader will understand this is a very genuine review at every level I recommend the hotel with the strongest of confidence

I attended a two day conference at this hotel First the location of this hotel is great It is situated in the heart of the city

The town center area itself has so much to offer There is entertainment, night life and restaurant for all tastes You don’t even need a car, you can just stroll out of the hotel and it is all there I was also impressed with the cleanliness at the hotel Spic n Span I wish there were more than 5 stars to offer

I love holiday in and always Stay with them as I am Gold elite member I had stayed here yesterday and The staff at check in was amazing However, I really did not like how the first room we were placed in the door lock did not work and then the second room we were placed in was very very dusty above the bed

I would really appreciate the manager making sure there is better cleaning

The Indigo had a great location for us The room was beautiful with plenty of space The shower was wonderful, very large

The beds were comfortable We really enjoyed spending time out on the patio overlooking the water We will definitely stay here whenever we are in the area My only negative is that my room key stopped working 3x during my stay and I had to go down to front desk to get it fixed But, the staff is so friendly that I would not take away a star for the inconvenience

Brooke Simpson

The room and bathroom were super clean and very spacious I loved the mid-century modern inspired decor The nearby lake is a beautiful backdrop for the hotel

It’s in a central location near the highway, shops, and restaurants, but is very peaceful and quiet The lobby has a really nice bar as well We would definitely stay here again when in the Jacksonville area The only cons were the bed was a little too firm for my personal preference and breakfast isn’t included

Vernetta Liner

The hotel is beautiful! The service was good When you walk in the first thing I noticed was that the hotel pic online was a true representation of the hotel Anyways, the room was beautifully kept with an exception of the bathroom shower

The walls and floor in the shower were supposed to be white but there was mildew all over the grout on some of the walls and on the floor I always wear shower shoes when I take a shower anyplace that is not home I am glad that is my habit because I would’ve requested a room with cleaner showers, or a refund and went somewhere else You would think that such a prestigious place would pay a little more to ensure the showers were cleaned better Any shower mildew remover would’ve worked Everything else was on point Changed it to 4 star because it was a very nice hotel with a great ambiance with an exception of what I stated

The staff at the Hotel Palm are great The rooms are clean and beautiful, and the common area in the courtyard is so nice A big fireplace is a great centerpiece for a fun place to hangout and enjoy your time at the hotel! This is where I want all my friends to stay when they come to town!!!Don’t forget the coffee shop in the mornings

Show Pidgeon Coffee makes some fantastic concoctions each morning So good!!

Katie Stallcup

I’m partial to refurbished vintage motels, and this place does it right! Lovely courtyard, relaxed environment, and cute, comfortable room AC worked great and ceiling fan was a nice touch Plenty of outlets for charging

If you’re looking for chain-type hotels, keep looking, but this unique spot fits our travel style perfectly Just wish we could have stayed longer

We did not stay here, but a friend of ours did and we came by to get changed, etcParking seems pretty limited, but there were a few spots open Be careful with parking in the lot across or next, tow trucks were in full force

The hotel had a courtyard where guests could hang out, have a few drinks and mingle The room that our friends stayed in seemed very cabin-ish, but very nice The shower was SMALL Not sure if there’s a big deal to some or notSuper close to restaurants in the area and about half a mile from the beach

We have visited this property three times and each stay has been wonderful Whether in the hotel or villas, no complaints here The property is beautifully maintained and has many amenities to enjoy- restaurants, Starbucks, pools, bikes, putt putt, corn hole, and a shuttle to the beach club near by

You can rent beach chairs/umbrella at the beach club for an additional cost Our hotel room was spacious and very clean I noticed housekeeping constantly cleaning throughout my stay The sanitizing stations worked and the lobby restrooms were always clean The staff was very friendly and welcoming upon arrival and departure Definitely a place we will continue to visit

M. Gonzalez

Perfectly located!!! They received my dog and I (small dachshund), the hotel has two restaurants, didn’t get to use the pool as we took the shuttle to the beach which brought us back seamlessly! (Apparently it’s a HUGE PLUS since there is no real beach access in Ponte Vedra

They drop you off at another lodge whereby you can rent a cabana, have a bar and restaurant, and all the amenities of a hotel)A valet named Hunter took amazing care of me and my car, absolutely nicest and most attentive valet ever!The front desk a gentleman, Kevin (from Germany) checked us in, very nice concierge, and Peter at the front desk also helped me out on the way out to extend the check out without an issue as I had mistaken the spa appointment time and we had a beach morning plannedThe grounds are gorgeous, the courses speak for themselves Though the rooms are a little outdated everything was impeccable!They have a pretty complete gift shop with any other items you may have forgotten to pack (Joanie was awesome) and the actual golf clothing store was well equipped but only for adult men They could spruce up inventory for us ladies a bit!Immediately upon leaving the hotel you have a shopping center across with a solid ABC liquor store, Publix, and a bunch little shops all worth checking out There were some restaurants there as well If you needed to, you could walk over from the hotel but there is plenty of parking both at the Marriott and the plazaI will be back to visit the family and definitely return to the hotel The spa was divine too, worth every penny (thank you Mary!)

Maggie Attoe

Absolutely gorgeous location and property I would recommend and definitely come back The staff was so friendly and accommodating

My only very minor complaint was the Vilas are a smidge dated (primarily the restrooms shower/toilet area) and the exterior could use a little TLC Other than that though everything else is exceptional! Walking the grounds, and relaxing outside Or utilizing the conference rooms you will not be disappointed!

Ace Roberts

Absolutely enjoyed my stay The hotel staff was extremely friendly My family really enjoyed Joshua in the hotel restaurant

He was extremely friendly and polite He is the reason we ate at the hotel for dinner both nights of our stay The room was great We had no issue The only downfall was the pool was extremely cold Our daughter is a water baby so that was a bummer for us

Debbie Aubrey

This hotel is close to the Hwy,which on one hand is good, but it as also means the noise level is higher The room itself was nice just as advertised on the website

It was also nice to be able to have a hot complementary breakfast again( Post Covid) The staff were nice I did see staff wiping down door handles, tables, lamp lights All staff wore masks You do have to ask for house cleaning if staying longer than one day

Stacey Deal

This hotel is one of our favorite Hilton brand hotels and we love staying there! The only thing this hotel does different than the rest of the other Hilton hotels, is you cannot go to the pool whenever you want! You have to make a reservation! I know that the pool is indoors, but again other Hilton hotels in the area with an indoor pool do not require a reservation! The hot tub was not hot! It was just as cool as the pool! Other than those two things, it was great! Breakfast is fantastic and the omelets are delicious!

Literally the most comfortable hotel I have ever been too And I’ve been too a lot of hotels Feels like your home

Nice beach view Great breakfast Breakfast was cold and hot foods Private room with a door, great for privacy when you have kids They have everything I was so at peace and it’s such a zen vibe Friendly staff Definitely worth EVERY PENNY!! highly recommended If I could give it 1000 stars I would

Rhiannon Watts

I was so excited to stay at this hotel I have previously had happy hour at the restaurant and I love historic hotels, I stay in them frequently I also travel for work so I’m traveling 50% of my time

Check in was easy, the front desk was always great however, the room was just sad It was empty with not just outdated furniture but old, worn furniture It feels like how I’d imagine moving into a fixed income, furnished one bedroom apartment would feel I wouldn’t sit on the couch The bed I had was comfy though No blackout curtains The walls were incredibly thin The people next to me kept me up all night listening to them vomit Sounded like maybe they had a stomach bug, hope they feel better I recommend playing white noise on your phone to drown out the sound of partying and thin walls They don’t provide any water bottles or drinking water even upon check in Parking was horrible They have 2 very small lots that they share with the public so it’s unlikely you’ll get a spot during peak hours One day i just drove around for an hour until someone left The hot water for the shower took 20 minutes to turn even remotely warm One morning I waited 30 minutes and it was still cold, I chalked it up to being out of hot water so I took a cold shower and by the time I was getting out, it was starting to turn warm If you have anywhere to be, start your shower WAY earlier I was late to a business meeting due to this Housekeeping ignored the do not disturb sign on my door and cleaned my room anyways It doesn’t just seem old, it’s musty and dusty It’s just dirty feeling At one point the hallway smelled like throw up Stuff piled up everywhere for guests to see Again, I stay in historic hotels all the time and this is not well kept up with The beach access was really nice The staff was really nice I absolutely loved all of the bar tenders Seriously can’t say good enough things about them The upstairs restaurant is wonderful But I won’t stay here again

Stephanie Galloway

The most charming of spaces

if you can find in the middle of the ugly Daytona-like high rises, you will be delighted with this fancy, old Florida (Spanish) hotel Sitting on the beautiful patio with a lavish (albeit self-serve) breakfasthelped by a smiling, warm staffthis is wonderful I have come here for decades for the delicious Sunday brunch and top floor tiny barbut staying here was even better Highly recommend My room was not oceanfront (less expensive) but still very nice
