Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel This website will compare countless booking websites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This place is one of my favorites in this area

I have been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure will love it I’m sure!Very friendly staff, clean pool and within walking distance of the beach Rooms are very comfortable and modern The ocean front room is the way to go with a beautiful view of the Atlantic ocean from your balcony Makes for a beautiful sunrise

Marie Wood

We had a great view The room was on the small side with 2 queen beds The fridge still had the prior tenants ice cream in the freezer

Housekeeping apologized and took it away immediately No big dealThe hotel seems to be an older one but it was clean and the staff was very friendly and eager to please The pool was nice, too

brandy McFarland

Beds were comfy and good location It was being remodeled but the room didn’t look like it was cleaned well Already water damage in bathroom on the door frame

Both rooms had a weird smell to them and carpet felt weird Idk if they still had more to do In the room in between guests or not It was noisy but we were able to sleep Breakfast was good but dining area was small

The reason I gave 5 stars already on our first night is based mostly on staff The front desk greeter was super nice I’m sorry I didn’t catch her name

We had a few glitches with our key reader to our room and Tammy was absolutely fantastic She was on top of it and she got everything in line Tammy also personally checked our pillows & switched out the down pillows since I’m allergic She was very quick and efficient The room is spacious with our king bed and big bathroom Definitely looking forward to the rest of our stay!

Brentney “Bre” Simon

This has been the hotel of choice every time our family visits the Mayo Clinic I have been a patient since 2015 and this hotel never disappoints From the warm friendly smiles that the staff always has to the delicious breakfast and thoroughly sanitized rooms, I am very pleased

The rates are of great value with unbeatable location from being just 10mins to both the beach and hospital There are many options for food and shopping just a few steps away Highly Recommend!

After our last bad hotel experience we drove here immediately Jeff was awesome! Let us check in early and we were so thankful as I’m 5 months pregnant and we were so exhausted from driving 15 hours Service was GREAT

Cleanest rooms I’ve ever seen for a hotel Shower water was hot Beds were so comfy Breakfast was awesome We will definitely be staying here every Single time we come to Florida for sure!!

Shemiah Miller

The absolute best hotel!! I work for IHG and go frequently to different Holiday Inn hotels to see what they’re like Over the last year, I’ve stayed in over 10 hotels, and this one was by far my favorite After a lengthy drive from North Carolina, the front desk manager/fellow IHG Champion enabled me to check in early

Breakfast vouchers were supplied to us, and the room was fantastic! Housekeeping did an outstanding job of keeping the room clean on a daily basis! This property made me feel right at home, and I will definitely return Maybe even as a member of the staff!! 😉

Marius Pollux

This holiday inn is an excellent hotel I discovered on a business trip Bartenders like Chastity are an asset, and make me want to go out of my way to return to this location I have F&B background, and someone with such a genuine personality and active listening skills is a rarity

The lovely lady who made my burger did a phenomenal job; it was on par with some that I have spent double the money on eating These operators know what they are doing The rooms are cozy What more can you ask?

Haley (itishaley)

The worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at If I found put 0 stars I would The desk lady was very rude and acted like she didn’t know what she was doing

We booked for a room with 2 queen beds (made reservations) Just for us to get there and them say that room is no longer available The desk lady told me if you reserve on line you’re not guaranteed to get that room??? I’ve never heard of that, however this story gets continuously worst She put us in a room with one bed and a couch There were 4 of us which is very in convenient But she told us the room was paid for online right I get there and it’s a hidden $50 fee She assured me my card wouldn’t be the card charged for the reservations Come to find out 3 days later my card was charged over $200 and so was my friends Plus the $50 fee When we go into our room there’s no toilet handle to flush the toilet!!!! My friend had to stick her hand in the toilet to flush it The lady refused to change our room!!! I paid over $250 for a room that I didn’t want and for a toilet that don’t flush She told me there’s nothing she could do about it The pool was filthy!!! I don’t know what these people have going on over here but it’s very scam like so if I’m not given my refund I will take legal action Not only for the money but this hotel is no where near regulations!!!

L. msprettygeorgia

If wasn’t for Frankie and maintenance workerI would have given this place a 0!!Beds were not made up The cover/ bedspread was pulled back on the bed dirty

I love this Hilton brand When we look for a hotel, it’s usually just to get a little rest so we don’t spend much time in the room The Tru brand fits our traveling lifestyle perfectly

It’s always clean and has all the amenities neededWe made our reservation later than w expected but had no problem at all The hotel is in a super nice area and there was plenty of parking The front desk clerk was very accommodating and pleasant to talk toWe look forward to staying here again when in the area

Enjoyed this beautiful setting Nice room overlooking the ocean Can’t beat the view! Pool area and beach access are good

, Steven” needs to work on his customer service skills and learn to listen instead of blowing off customers Oh and he needs to stop lying and saying since he is the manager, there is no one above him that you can speak to There is! She’s the general manager (although it took me calling corporate to find this info)

She was extremely nice and resolved my issue expeditiouslyThe issue was:I called to confirm my reservation and Steven tells me that my husband needs his work ID in order to get the Lockheed rate, that we book or we would have to pay a higher rate Well we were already on the way to Florida and didn’t have it It was not mentioned anywhere that it was required and that I could pull up his info via Lockheed website He said “no”, either we produce the badge or pay a higher rate This wasn’t an option I asked him why I wasn’t sent and email or text or notified of this when I booked the room He bluntly said “it should have been on your reservation” I told him it wasn’t and he said, “I can check it but you still need the ID” I told him I don’t agree with his decision and asked for the manager He said that he was the manager I asked for his manager or someone over him and he said “there is no one else, I am the manager” I asked for his name he said “Steven” I asked for his full name and he said “Steven is all you need to know” He said you have a government rate and must have your husband’s ID I tried explaining that Lockheed is not the government but contracts with the government He would listen and transferred me to reservations knowing full well that they couldn’t help meAfter several phone calls, I almost gave in but I found the corporate number and the gave me the management company for this hotel I called and gave them the above information and the General Manager called me back very quick Turns out that Steven was wrong and the only ID we needed was our driver’s license She apologized and made me feel like a valued customer and said she would educate Steven When we checked in, Steven walked away and let us checked in with another repI did catch him off guard as we were leaving and asked him why he gave me such a hard time, he gave a smirky type of apology and said that he learned something new and said that he apologizedOther than that incident, the hotel itself was very clean and the other staff was nice

horrible service my parents are staying there for my moms surgery at the Mayo clinic They offer a shuttle service but cant seem to pick up their phone when a patient calls needing to be picked up from the clinic

my parents who are both older had to sit there for 2 hours trying to reach them until when they only had 7 percent battery left on their phone and called me i had to order them a lyft just to get them back when my parents walked back in the hotel they were greeted my a man named Steve who laughed at my dad when he said hes been trying to call for 2 hours To laugh like my dad was joking is completely unacceptable and rude then of course all the phone magically worked again and I was able to call All i can keep thinking about is what if today was the day for surgery and my mom had sat there for 2 hours in pain because this hotel is careless this is also not the first bad review on them not picking up a phone and for the excuse of the phone lines being down do better and get a back plan I now have to wait until Wednesday to talk to the Manager

Elite Makeover

I booked a reservation at this location On the day of I tried calling them over a dozen times to inform them that I will be in a bit late I got no response no email no courtesy at all after I payed my reservation in full

It was urgent I spoke to them as I was traveling h 3000 miles and needed to know if it was ok to check in after midnight The next day I call and they tell me that there was no way no one answered as the phones were busy and they had agents all day Not only was my trip ruined but I was not given the respect or the courtesy of a refund or credit and was flat out called a liar and said there was nothing they could do I had to overall just cancel my Jacksonville trip for the night all because there was zero communication I could understand if they were busy but I got no apologies or consideration as a customer I will never book a Hampton EVER again

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

Anne Martinez

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

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!

Thanks so much for everything

My wife and I have been staying here for years This place feels like home away from home I am a cancer transplant patient who requires a lot of care with constant trips to Mayo Clinic

The staff are so welcoming and amazing They truly go above and beyond from the front of the hotel, to the kitchen, to the cleaning staff, and management in all aspects they really show they care The hotel is really clean and it is very obvious they care about keeping it that way I have to be so very careful as a transplant patient and I can tell you I feel very safe at this hotel Not to mention that every room here is oceanfront view with balcony It is such a blessing to be able to have this soothing healing view with the pain I feel through treatments sometimes Our family thanks everyone of them and are very grateful for the last couple of years and years to come as I fight through this cancer Thank you for allowing our family to feel like home away from home 🙂

Considering this hotel has beachfront views, the prices are fantastic For some FL beach perspective, I recently paid in the $500/night range on Daytona Beach, and in the $900/night range Miami BeachThe hotel offers good amenities – a gym, business center, heated pool and hot tub

Staff were very nice, and the room was cleanThere were only 3 drawbacks Firstly, parking is tight – especially if you have a larger vehicle It seems there are not enough spaces in the lot for a full hotel Secondly, our TV had constant issues, and wouldn’t work properly Unfortunate, but not detrimental Thirdly, there was an incident – probably just an honest mistake, but it was an incident nonetheless At 9:25am on the morning of checkout, I was abruptly awoken by the house keepers coming into my room – even though checkout isn’t until 11, and there was “Do Not Disturb” sign on the doorEven so, I would consider staying at this hotel again

Laura Praksti

The staff upon check in and in passing were very pleasant The gentleman checking us in was awesome and hilarious Was great talking to him

Cheered us up after a long day of travel The day and evening staff always gave a passing “hello” and would ask if everyone was going well or if we needed anythingThe ONLY reason I almost took 1 star off was due to the state of the tub It was pretty beat up I assume they are renovating, because the room, beds, TV and counters were ultra updated/in perfect condition The beds were probably the most comfortable I’ve EVER stayed in I usually don’t sleep well when traveling, but these beds changed that So I recommend overlooking the tub if you get that room (it was still perfectly functional) and just enjoy the remainder of your time By the time I was out of the tub, I forgot all about itBecause the hospitality, beds and rest of the room was perfect I don’t feel the need to knock stars off

Mimi Jones

This hotel was definitely amazing! And I love how the rooms match the pictures that they advertise online to a perfection! They were super clean no dust anywhere except for the AC vents, it was very dusty there so maybe they could clean the vents out or change the filters a bit more consistently (we ended catching colds because of this)Other than that our stay here was amazing and our housekeeper Kenneth was awesome and very attentive to us! He deserves a raise!

Courtney Cox

Overall, the hotel is fine You can tell it was once a really fabulous place but it is in need of a lot of TLC The rooms are pretty spacious, but housekeeping was not great

The rooms have hard floors with lighting around the perimeter of the bed, and as soon as the light turned on, there was trash and debris all over the floor, not to mention the 2 insects I had to kill in the roomthere is currently no on site restaurant or bar which was disappointing as it was one of the main reasons I booked (the direct website does mention that these amenities are closed, but 3rd party sites do not) The pool was nice and warm and very clean When I mentioned the cleanliness issues to the desk manager, I was offered some Best Western Points which is ok, but given what I paid for the room, I certainly expected just a higher overall standard All in all, if the price was right, I would consider staying again, but only if I inspected the room before agreeing to stay

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!

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!!!

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!

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel They compare thousands of booking websites and usually will have rates much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This resort is the best rated in this area

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

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!

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

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

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

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

Room was clean and nice Front desk was helpful, breakfast was good, there was always coffee available and it’s a stones throw from a public beach Can’t go wrong with that even on a business trip!!Only issue I had being there for 10 days (for work) was the fridge in the room was way to damn small 🤷🏻‍♂️

Erin Andrews

I booked the whirlpool suite due to recent back injections and the need to get some relief from the pain The whirlpool spa was just an oversized bathtub because it didn’t work I asked for a manager and nobody got back to me

I’m so disappointed that I payed all this money for a service that didn’t work And by the reviews, it wasn’t the first time Very disappointed!!!
