On the beach within a short drive to area attractions
The Best Western is located directly on the beach in Jacksonville Beach, the northern area of Florida. Jacksonville Beach is a calmer option compared to the packed and often party-centric beaches of Southern Florida. The beach is known for being a great surfing spot, and it also has a fishing pier that is frequented by locals and tourists alike. There are several small restaurants in the area, as well as a few touristy shops and surf shops.
The highlight of the 51-room Best Western is its oceanfront location, and free perks such as breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking make it a great value. Room decor is sleek and fresh -- if not particularly stylish -- with dark furniture, bright white linens, and navy accents. And all rooms feature mini-fridges, microwaves, and flat-screen TVs. Extra amenities are limited here; there is a small outdoor pool (bordered by the street and a parking lot), and a fitness center that is a three-minute walk away. But for the price, it's a great value -- and the in-room massage treatments (for a fee) are an added luxury for such a budget-friendly hotel.
