Really enjoyed my stay in Jacksonville. The location, service and amenities were fantastic. The parking situation was a little inconvenient, but the staff was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again in the future. I was in town on business and really enjoyed the hotel.

I booked this hotel for a business trip because the hotel I normally choose was booked. The online photos looked nice, the reviews were fine, and it was located close to my office. However, upon checking in, I found the location leaving a lot to be desired. The area of town is a little desolate, and didn't feel too safe for a woman traveling alone. When I walked in the front door I was overwhelmed by some type of fragrance filling the air of the small entryway. It was awful. The front desk clerk... Read more

I previously stayed at this hotel and had a really good experience, which is why I decided to stay at this hotel again, unfortunately my experience wasn't as good. This is a large size hotel, the rooms are updated and quite clean and the staff is generally friendly. Unfortunately, when I tired to check-in at the hotel I was told that the hotel was oversold and that there were no rooms for me. I found this odd, because I booked the reservation 3 weeks in advance and didn't receive a notice th... Read more

This hotel is adjacent to a Homewood suites (both doors to their respective lobby is 50 feet apart) so beware when checking in and trying to pull up to the front door. When pulling up you approach the door to Hilton Garden Inn then drive in a tight half circle past the Homewood Suites door. Needless to say because I couldn't get past the Homewood suite entrance due to cars blocking the driveway I had to backup through the loop and almost hit a pedestrian. There is a parking garage adjacent to ... Read more

After my family and I went to the mall we came back to our rooms to see that house keeping had not did their job. We had to ask for them to come and clean our rooms and constantly ask for towels and rags.

Overall, the experience was fine. HGI needs to consider adding additional cook staff to accommodate the number of guest during the breakfast hours. I didn't experience any activities during the lunch/diner hours. Also, the Pantry was nice, but it really didn't have much to offer. A small gift shop/convenient store would be ideal. We had to go to the grocery store and Walgreen a few times.

We stayed there on a Friday night. The room was nice and spacious. Excellent staff. Our room was on the 6th floor overlooking the pool. The design of this facility causes sounds from the pool to come straight up. While there were residents in the pool, it sounded like they were right outside our window. The hotel also sits near a set of railroad tracks. When trains go by (three in that one night) it is very easy to hear them. Other than those issues, we had a very pleasant stay. We ate in the on...

I travel frequently for business purposes and have become accustomed to mediocre-to-rude service, sub-par rooms and high prices. This Hilton brought me back a few years to a time when the customer truly was appreciated. For business or pleasure I would highly recommend this hotel. Do be aware there is some significant road construction in the area so be sure to have a real-time means of navigating the route to and from the hotel. Well worth it.

Overall this is a nice place to stay . Our room had mattress that sunk in like waving goodbye standing in quicksand. Other than that I would say this hotel is above average . I would probably checkout the adjacent Hometown Suites that actually share the same building believe it or not .

My recent visit was very refreshing. Rooms were clean--odor and stain free furnishings. Guest services were excellent. I elected to secure the bed and breakfast deal. It was great. They fix your order according to your specifications. My omelet was great...Sizes huge. You will have to ask for the baby portion...otherwise they serve portions fit for professional sports players. Staff did not hesitate to attend to our needs. Overall a great stay. I am a fan~

This is a newer hotel in a great location close to I-95. It was clean and attractive. There was nothing spectacular about the rooms but they were adequate. The beds are sleep number which means that you have two options: rock hard and not so rock hard. Also they did not provide little amenities like the little kits that contain makeup remover which I am used to seeing in other hotels with the Hilton brand. For $179/night, you would think that would have also been included. Also there is no conti... Read more

This hotel was modern and very clean. Our room had everything that we could want and was very comfortable. A few opportunities were missed: Confusion- parking is provided in an adjacent parking garage for $10/day for hotel guests. We had to 'figure out' that the room key card is used to enter and exit the garage & that the card needs to be inserted upside down to work. While there is signage to indicate that hotel guests are restricted to the first floor of the garage, they are easy to miss. I... Read more

Location was good. We had hoped to walk downtown but the receptionist wasn't very helpful with telling us about things in the area. She was not the friendliest to talk to. The pool was closed.

I have been to countless hotels. This Garden Inn in Jacksonville Florida was one of the better ones. The staff is very helpful. The room was comfortable and smelled very fresh.

Refreshing water was made with the fruits from the breakfast and available throughout the day.

Finding the hotel was a little weird. It adjoins or another hotel and its kind of a strange set up. But, once you walk into the lobby, its a typical HGI. Parking is in an adjoining parking structure. You use your key to enter and exit. The property was clean and seems well maintained. Front desk staff was nice and efficient. No real complaints, overall a good experience. There are some good local restaurants and a brewery within a few blocks.
