Right on the beach. A Florida Beach with palm trees and everything. A bit far from JAX airport, maybe 25 miles.
Like many beachfront hotels, the decor was a little beat up and not very stylish. Because it doesn't have to be, because you are there for the beach. It's a bit more noticeable when you are not there for the beach but are there for business.
Staff was extremely nice and courteous, and the rooms were very clean. They had free breakfast in the morning in the style of a Hampton Inn, but it wasn't very good. Too microwave tasting or something - strange. Better food/bar would have knocked up my score a bit. The hotel gift shop is stocked with beer and wine. Internet was free in the room - cabled. The rooms have a balcony overlooking the dunes and then the beach, with a wide boardwalk (concrete actually) in front.
Because of daylight savings time, didn't really see what the beach looked like since it was dark when we got in, and dark when we got up. A few quick pictures, and we sat outside waiting for our ride to the airport, which was nice.
