Here's what you need to know... A review of Hampton Inn Jacksonville Beach/Oceanfront
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.
