Recommended by Mayo Clinic as my husband a patient there. Front desk Moriah the best part about hotel , Very nice and professional when we had trouble with our charge card. However we were given a room 301 tucked in corner by elevator and vending. Our view was overlooking First street the main drag and straight down into the Hookah...

Moriah is truly an asset for our hotel. We hope your next stay with us will be a better one. We try to upgrade our guests whenever possible. We don't place guests based on price paid. About one third of our hotel rooms are oceanfront and the rest either face the city or the pool. The hotel is walking distance...

It really is oceanfront...just steps from the beach. Our "pool view" room actually overlooked the parking lot, where the pool is. The whole place needs to be scrubbed down...ick in the floor corners, etc. Breakfast was puzzling...lots of bacon, but no eggs. Very little seating in the breakfast area...we took our food back to our room to eat. Great TV...

If you are looking for a place where you can live, love and enjoy life, this hotel helps meet that goal. It is located on the beach and close to many attractions. My boyfriend and I was more than pleased with the service. The room was absolutely beautiful and we had an amazing time. It was so nice that we...

Best Western Oceanfront Hotel is a great location and features a staff that is willing to go the extra mile to provide excellent service. The staff is outgoing and friendly and really make you feel that you are at home when you are staying there.

Hotel is clean, secure, and breakfast is a pretty decent for complimentary. It's right on the beach, and walking distance to cool beach shops and great restaurants (but the best was Parsons, you can walk but should probably drive). Beach is nice, but if you're coming from up north the beach was just as good as South Carolina beaches so...

This was the best priced oceanfront hotel I could find in Jacksonville Beach. It's not a Marriott or Hilton but you get a well appointed room with all you need. It is located in an area with a lot of bars, restaurants and nightlife. Parking in the garage is tight so if you have a big truck you have to...

The Hotel is clean, the staff friendly, the hotel needs updating, the room seemed small but fine, the balcony was very small 6x4 maybe. The breakfast was garbage. Hard biscuits and gravy, over cooked bacon, the hard boiled eggs I don't even know how they ruined those, or you could go carb in and have a waffle or bagel. No...

A dump. Service poor, room needs complete renovation. Terrible value. A/C worked erratically. Separate room dehumidifier that was noisy. Carpets worn and dirty. Tub rusting. Light bulbs not working. 18 wheeler tractor parked in the front entrance making entrance/leaving difficult. Pool dirty - needs cleaning. All this for $200/night. We stayed there because a friend's wedding party was down the...

Typically, during our summer season, our rates are higher. We still provide the best value of any oceanfront hotel in Jacksonville Beach. Our maintenance staff has addressed the issues you mentioned. Renovations are ongoing within our guestrooms. We hope you give us another chance during your next visit to Jacksonville Beach.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was just off the beach and we enjoyed several strolls and beautiful sunsets. The breakfast was good, offering many choices.

First off let me start by saying this is a good hotel that is located near restaurants and bars in walking distance. Also oceanfront is always a plus. Housekeeping does an excellent job. I have 2 complaints. First the beds are not comfortable. The middle was sunken in. So we had to sleep on the edges. Second the pool was...
