I called Front desk night beforeMe: Can I order breakfast for pick up?Front desk: Absolutely, just call us tomorrow and we will relay it to the restaurantMe: great, thanks

—–The next morning—–Me: I’d like to place an order for pick upFront desk: unfortunately, that’s not possible You have to place the order yourself and there’s no way for us to communicate with the restaurantPlease educate your staff about this process!

Jeffrey Lewitsky

Very conveniently located of I95 and not far from shops and restaurants (even walking distance) The front desk worker who checked us in in the evening was very nice and so were both the evening and morning Bistro workers The lobby is expansive and the pool area large and very attractive

The rooms also were large and there was plenty of parking The 24 hour gym was a good size too



I won’t post the photo because I’ve had some time to cool off but, the lady playing on her phone behind the desk completely ignoring everyone who came in was not a good start I didn’t say anything but I did sit there for a good 20 mins before she decided to turn off Judge Judy and check me in The hotel full of baby Turkish wedding guests running around until 2 am wasn’t the hotels fault but still wasn’t the most pleasant experience Otherwise, nice facility and friendly staff (except 1)

Exceeded my expectations by far! I stayed there for 3 nights The staff was so friendly and helpful throughout my stay The lobby is very spacious and well-appointed, perfect for visiting with others as well as for noshing on the free breakfast

My room was IMMACULATE and smelled so fresh – not like cleaning products, which can give me headaches, just fresh because it is SO CLEAN Nicely furnished, with great quality linens and pillows and an extraordinarily comfy bed There is a beautiful, generously-sized outdoor lounge area with a waterfall and fireplace, as well as a great pool which has comfy, clean cushions on the lounge chairs Overall, the hotel comes across as higher end than one would expect for the price Also, it is in close proximity (walking distance) to a variety of good restaurants, grocery store, convenience store, massage place, and nail salon About a 25 minute drive to the beach Overall, I enjoyed my stay there immensely I’m so much looking forward to my next trip to Jax and staying there again!

Val Wilson

It took a little longer than expected for me to check in but other than that it was great! Room was clean, customer service was great and the breakfast was excellent! I stayed for 2 nights I am currently 8 months pregnant and I was there by myself but the staff continued to check on me throughout my stay and that made me feel safe The area is nice with a ton of great restaurants around; many within walking distance

I will definitely be staying here again

Daniel Lerch

My first and only issue was with a 3rd party that I used to book the reservation I requested two nights, got confirmation for two nights, but when I checked in I discovered that Hampton only had one night in their system The front desk, easily resolved the issue and I ended up with a better price

The accommodations and the customer service at this property were more than satisfactory The staff was very friendly, cheerful, and very professional The complimentary exceeded my expectations of motel fast food service My wife and I were surprised that the food was made with fresh ingredients of good quality, well prepared, and the presentation/serving was very professional The serving/dining areas were attractive and very clean The only regret that I have is that I had more than seconds helpings

Ethel Raymond

This hotel stay by far has been one of the best that I have experienced and I have been to plenty of hotels Trudy the manager was very informative when we spoke on what was needed for my event planner to be able to come and set up the room Tiffany at the front desk was so helpful and such a kind soul

She helped me book for another night with ease Nichole at the front desk was very polite and so was all the other staff there Unfortunately I can not remember all the names of the staff I had encounters with there, but each one of them were amazing They really have a great team at this site Room was clean, no complaints there I will definitely stay here again every time that I come to this city

Angie Rivera

Arrived at 9pm to check in and was greeted with a friendly smile and a hello even though she was taking care of another guest They were in the process of remodeling so the front desk was a little awkwardMy clerk got us on the top floor so that we wouldn’t be disturbed with any noise since we had to get up early for a flight

The only thing I didnt like was the elevators were not kept clean Only one elevator could be used due to renovating So it got plenty of use You can tell by all of the hand prints on the elevator doorsOverall the room was very clean We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the bathroom and beds The room was very nice and the hotel clerks were great The complimentary breakfast was also amazing

Suite had a kitchen, but microwave did not work The one appliance that I would have used I reported it and was directed to a community microwave down the hall

Appreciated CoVid measures in the room Phones and remotes wrapped, antibacterial wipes provided, etc Room was quiet Pillows were great Staff was friendly Easy access to I-295

Kelly Ruston

Very happy with our stay! Kitchenette was lovely, full sized fridge and all the extras including plates etc Nice large desk, comfy reclining chair next to the bed, and the bathroom was clean and spacious The key card reader was a little finicky to get into the room

There were two really lovely gazebos out back, both of which featured a grill along with seating Security patrolled outside overnight, so we felt very safe and weren’t concerned about our vehicle Location was great, easy on/off the highway and a few places to order delivery from

Leah LaBounty

I’ve stayed here for a couple of extended stays Rooms and common areas are always clean Rooms have kitchenettes and full size fridges which is awesome; everything worked well

Free laundry, little gym area, often a selection of food/snacks/beverages/travel size toiletries Staff are all friendly and helpful, and do a good job of keeping everything clean A lot of long term stay guests Couple different outdoor areas with grills, there is a little pond in the back The area is kinda walkable but not a ton of stuff in the immediate area No pool or anything but the beach is close Great location, easy to get all around Jax and surrounding areas, right off 95 and 202 Usually a pretty quiet area as well I don’t really have any complaints!

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

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

N. Wilson

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

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

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!

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

I had a fantastic experience staying at the Hampton Inn this weekend The check-in process was simple and the front desk representatives were accommodating The room was CLEAN! This is a big deal because the last three times I’ve stayed at hotels in the past two years, they were not as clean as they should’ve been

I was amazed to see that everything in the room was perfect The air conditioner worked well and was not noisy The bed was very comfortable There were plenty of towels in the room I didn’t have breakfast during my stay, but the breakfast spread looked delicious The hallways were quiet and the whole stay was pleasant Upon checkout, I noticed the manager on duty was behind the front desk greeting guests by their last name (Wow!) The location is perfect It’s close to everything and Bartram Park is a safe, beautiful community I’ve already made reservations at this hotel for my next visit to Jacksonville

Susan Beyer

I was super impressed with the staff at this hotel! Everyone was friendly & accommodating, from the front desk girls to the maintenance man & cleaning staff! The pool was wonderful, clean & refreshing The room/bathroom was very clean, the beds comfy and the space felt relaxing The breakfast was delicious

This hotel is walking distance to a plethora of wonderful stores, shops, restaurants and even Baptist South hospital We felt safe & well cared for during our stay I noticed quite a few families and groups used the breakfast community area for meals & get togethers, as did our family The night girl, Chandra (I think I spelled that right? 🙂), kept everything clean, neat and upbeat with her great smile and attitude I am thankful for the southern hospitality that my son & I received at this very nice establishment Thank you! I can’t wait to visit again!

Scott Russo

Perfect room to fit my family of 5 as a stopover on our way to Legoland The hotel was clean & well maintained and the staff were friendly & welcoming We would stay here again! It was extra special because one of my kids accidently left their stuffed animal named Blueberry

The hotel staff kept it safe for us and we were able to get it back on the return trip I really appreciated that, and the staff were excited to see us re-united My only regret is not getting the name of the woman working on the desk who talked to us on the phone & got it back to us Thank you!

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?

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

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!)

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!

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!

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!

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!!!

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

This is the nicest Best Western that I’ve ever stayed in! It doesn’t feel or look like a traditional best Western, it’s so much nicer and it’s of higher quality, and you get the sense that’s it’s of higher quality whenever you first pull up to this best Western hotel I’ve been staying here for a week, due to work, and it’s been really nice This hotel has a very pretty outdoor smoking/hanging out area where it’s made of beautiful stone and there’s lighting that’s built into the stone for whenever it gets dark out

There’s a smaller sized pool at this hotel, and it goes to five feet deep and it’s kept clean and nice to swim in This is a great hotel and if your wanting to go to the beach and you don’t know where to park, Neptune beach is only 2 1/2 to 3 miles from this hotel and you can park at Walgreens for up to two hours for free I’ve had an awesome stay here so far and I highly recommend this hotel! I’ll post some pictures too

hotel was relatively clean and the front desk staff was decent to us housekeeping was very good was traveling with a pet and told there are only two rooms dedicated “pet-friendly

” was charged a $5660 non-refundable fee for my pet (apparently there is tax on top of the $5000 non-refundable fee?) when I asked what “extra” needed to be done to the room after a pet stays in a “pet friendly” room, there was no answer, per se I’m ALL FOR leaving a Deposit for my pet but as a responsible, conscientious pet owner who has a well-behaved and very clean pet who does absolutely no damage, who I clean up after 100% of the time, never disturbs anyone and is never left alone in the room, that fee should be REFUNDABLEThere is NO reason to make a deposit Non-refundable AND charge tax on it I thought you guys were taking “extra cleaning measures” anyway because of the “virus”??? I believe these non-refundable fees are unreasonable and will not be staying in hotels that charge them

WeonHi Kang

Clean, comfortable bed, quiet, the best thing was kindness of staff Left item has sent to my address and food was an average However, their kitchen was super clean and staff was constantly cleaned area that made me feel safe

Area is appeared commercial area not much likable but if you drive down to south a few miles, there’s plants of restaurantsThank you!

, 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
