Business Travel at its Best

A travel blog entry by worthj1970

I will spend at least five weeks in Jacksonville this summer, maybe more, though later travel might be at a different location. Now, though, I'm in JAX, as people seem to call it, staying on the beach.

Thankfully the sun goes down late this time of year, and it cools off just enough in the evenings to make a walk on the beach pleasurable.< …

... and her family. We typically measure this by how many "laugh so hard you almost pee your pants" moments, and we definitely had ours. The only thing I missed was meeting my niece Rebecca’s daughter Haylie, who was visiting family out of state and having an excellent time of it by the pictures she’s been posting on FB.



I’m posting this late and we are already in Georgia visiting more friends, so until my next ...

Then we went to the old fort, Castillo de San Marcos. This was built in 1695 to protect the town from pirate and other attacks. It was never captured by force. It was star shaped with walls constructed of limestone shell that wouldn't crack. And the walls were over 5m thick on the outside. It had a gun deck lined with canons and sentry posts and a mote.

Segway Tour and Animal Sanctuary

... br> We saw lions, tigers, leopards, lynx, wolves, hyenas, bobcats and a porcupine. One jaguar had had a good life with his owner and got left there while his owner went on holiday but he never came back so the jaguar suffers from depression. There were more stories like this. All these animals could be walked on a leash.

We weren't allowed to take photos because it would scare the animals.

Salt Life - Sort of Miss It!

... trademarked the "Salt Life" stickers in so many windows.) Good service, good food, fairly reasonably priced. Saturday, Jane and Vicky walked the beach, gave Vicky shin splints. Watched basketball, ordered pizzas, enjoyed the beautiful weather, then left our friends to go pack for early morning departure to NC on Sunday. We do miss the beautiful beach of north Florida.

    Very comfortable, though the renovations are a bit of a pain.

    Loved IT

    from

    My sons and I came this past weekend and absolutley loved it. The price, location and atmosphere was great. They loved the pool and the beach was right there as well. I can not say enough about the hotel as well as the friendly staff.

    I highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

    Loved the pool

    from

    Great location, right on the beach. We stayed there the Memorial Day weekend, 2004. This was one of the lesser expensive places we checked on the beach too. Our room was Oceanfront. Initially, they had us on a lower floor (2nd) and the view was obscured by palm trees. They really need to move them. We were then moved to the fifth floor and the view was great.

    Our experience

    from

    My wife and I stayed for one night on May the 30th. The hotel was clean and the rooms where a nice size. We had an ocean front second floor room with a large balcony. This is one of the larger party spots

    Worn feeling

    from

    Stayed at this hotel after a weekend in Orlando. Must say I was very disappointed. While the location was great (right on the beach), I found it to be very worn. (carpet in rooms was dirty and needed to be replaced, windows were extremely dirty). When we got into our room, my son wanted to take a shower and when I reached to get him a towel, there were none.

    The in room movie service was slow to respond (almost 5 minutes) and the breakfast did not include any type of bread except english muffins.

    After staying at the Mariott Residence Inn this was a big letdown.

    Great - except for...

    from

    There is so much good to say about this hotel. On the beach, I love the people they are the greatest, and the sense of extended family I get every time is such a nice feeling. Housekeeping and maintenance, the un-song heroes of the industry, are super; the sales office have been tremendous; the morning breakfast has been brilliantly orchestrated and of course the Oasis, Kokomo?s and the Tiki bar are the excellent. I do not come here for the beach, but more for the people and friendly atmosphere.I am a big fan a paradigms and wish not to see anything change. The following statement is not a call for someone?s job, just a call of frustration. The one and only thing that holds this back from a five-circle rating - at least on this trip - is an isolated incident. The cause for this treatment might rise from exhaustion or a slip of the tongue. I realize that keeping a company face on, 100 percent of the time is difficult. When a customer states there is a problem with the noise leaking into one?s room from Karaoke it might be indicative of some action. It might be time for the individual providing this service to lower the level; if this is not possible; it might behoove the hotel to have a set audio level, and if the person cannot abide, it is then time to find another. When a bothersome observation is declared, I do not think an acting general manager to respond to the customer with, ?You chose that room.? This was quite a shock, since the acting GM has, in the past, been accommodating. An action like this, informs the customer that there is absolutely no recourse, and was personally offensive. If local tenet dictates that grievances are remedied in this manner, maybe a more direct method of contacting corporate offices might be best served by both management and customers. As I have said before, I have never been treated poorly, and will return. I do not want the place to lose its family atmosphere, and understand people do get tired.As I have said, this is a onetime incident. I am sure this will not happen again. I am only placing this here, because I feel there is no where else to go and I would really hate to see such wonderful chemistry come to an end. Keep up the good work?thanks to all?and always look forward to returning.Doug

    Great place, reasonable rates, A++

    from

    The Comfort totally fits its' name. We had an oceanfront room with a beautiful view at a great rate, roomy and clean. When not at the beach, we were relaxing by the nice waterfall pool. The staff was friendly and Beverly was very helpful with directing us to great restaurants. We look forward to returning.

    Love this Place

    from

    We stayed here for over a month while visiting Jacksonville on business during Oct/Nov 2003 and loved every minute. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomdated our every request including some check-in / check-out date and time changes as we came and went.

    Here's what you need to know...

    from

    I picked this hotel over the internet and chose a "pool view" room because from the pictures, it looked like I would be able to see the pool *and* the beach - and I was right. Two great views. But you'll need to choose the "ocean view" if you want to be able to actually see the sunrise from your balcony - the way the building is situated you can't see it from the "pool view" rooms. The "city view" rooms = parking lot view. All rooms appeared to have balconies (porches on 1st floor). The hotel has a fantastic pool with large rock waterfalls, a hot tub, a snack bar, a regular bar in a separate building (which appeared to be a locals hangout), and a gift shop. There was also Nintendo in the rooms, we bought an hour's worth - I think it was about $8. With the great pool, clean rooms, and being right on the beach, everyone there looked very happy with it. Highly recommended. Do ask them to remove the automatic $1 per night safe charge if you didn't use it.

    This was a wonderful hotel!

    from

    All I want to say is that this was a great hiotel. The food was decent, the pool was great and the rooms were very large and spacious. Anyone who is looking to tay in a great hotle for not too much money should look to stya here. My entire family enjoyed this hotel. Even the peple who usuallly dont like vacation enjoyed this place.

    Beware Hidden Charges

    from

    Be careful upon check-out! Hotel adds a $1 per day charge for using the room safe without even asking if you used it. They will deduct it if you complain but this petty exploitation is reason NOT to stay at this hotel. If they are that financially troubled, they could just increase the room rates by a dollar instead of adding this sneaky safe charge.
