    « Traveling through »

    Nice people, it's off the highway and I just couldn't drive to SC anymore. I was tired. They had snacks of warm cookies and nachos with cheese and jalapeños on the side. My room was comfortable and I would stay there again. You can become a best western member and receive a discount. They had breakfast in the morning and it's a smaller Best Western.

    « Very nice for an "Off-the-Interstate" Property »

    Nice amenities. Nice Pool/Hot Tub area. I thought a fairly priced value. Staff was pleasant and professional. The coffee availability and brand could be updated and improved upon, though. Otherwise, I will stay there again.

    « Returned my tablet »

    This is a very nice hotel that is convenient to Rt. 301 & I 10. The nachos and cookies in the evening saved us from having to go out. And the breakfast in the morning was very good. I enjoyed the waffles. I forgot my tablet in the room. I called and asked about it the next day and they promptly mailed it to me, Thanks so much to the staff.

    « Very Pleasant Surprise »

    We travel to Jacksonville every year for annual GA/FL game. Usually stay at a condo on the beach. This year we were unable to make reservations early due to sickness in our family and not sure if we would even be going to Florida this year. Once things cleared up enough, we were anxious to find a nice place to stay. We booked at this Best Western. What a very pleasant surprise. It was very quite. Our room was perfect for the 2 of us. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was better than most hotel buffets. We will be returning to this Best Western Plus on our annual trips. Very nice.

    « Perfect Stop on the way to Florida »

    We cancelled a room in Savannah, after inspecting the hotel we had reserved and decided to push on for a few hours and find another place that would accept us and our Springer Spaniel. We were delighted to find this hotel, right off 95. It was nicely decorated, very clean, had a microwave and refrigerator in the room. It included a very nice breakfast and newspaper in a lovely dining area in the reasonable rate. We arrived too late for cocktail hour amenities. I did see a fitness center, but we did not use it. For someone driving to Florida or who has business near Jacksonville, or needs an almost apartment like room---this place fits the bill. All the employees were also very professional and helpful. Couldn't ask for anything more. They even mailed a back brace I had forgotten in the closet!

    « Nice for the money »

    Hotel is a little older but still nice.WiFi worked well which is always nice. Staff was very friendly, the ac was pretty loud, and breakfast wasn't bad. it's only about 20 minutes from Amelia island and Ferdinand Beach.

    « very nice place »

    The hotel is just off of i-95, behind some restauraunts, it was quiet, the breakfast was fair, the bed was good except for the pillows they were so fluffy when you put your head on it , it disappeared. the room itself was beautiful. the wooden stairs at the front was the centerpiece of the hotel. Suprisingly quiet due to the trees blocking the sound.

    « Great lodging in Yulee Florida »

    If you are looking for lodging in the area of Amelia Island, look no further..This motel is exactly what you are looking for..It has everything you need, and it is close enough to everything in the area..And when you think of price for all the ammenities and a continental ( full) breakfast thrown in, my friend, you are the winner.

    « Good choice in Yulee, FL. »

    Pleasant, helpful receptionist. Complimentary evening Nacho/cheese/salsa bar. Well appointed clean rooms with a good television and excellent satellite programming.Very nice breakfast with cheese omelettes, sausage and home fried potatoes. Only negative..somewhat soiled first floor hall carpet. Easy on/off I-95. Recommended.

    « Highly recommended »

    We found this hotel excellent in every respect. Inside corridors to the rooms, and efficient elevator to the upper floors. The good AC/heater system has easy controls on the wall. The separate computer + printer room was very professional.

    « Cozy Beds »

    I really enjoyed staying the night. The location is convenient---close to restaurants and convenience stores and Interstate 95. The bed was comfy. The entire hotel was beautiful and very clean. Our two cats were welcomed at a small fee. The food wasn't as good as I expected at breakfast but the free cookie and nachos in the evening were yummy.

    « Good value »

    Clean beds and showers, little high mileage but not bad. My gauge of a good hotel room is how clean and comfortable the beds are and they were great. It's a pet friendly property and we did hear a dog or two but when it came to bed time, it was quiet. Id recommend it.

    « Grave Disappointment »

    Driving from the north to the south I stayed in best Western plus every stop of the trip. Being very satisfied I decided to stay at the best Western plus in Yulee. It is definitely not a best Western plus even though they say it is. The breakfast was very meager and poorly presented. The room was fair and if you like using a bath towel that's maybe the size of a dishtowel then you would be satisfied. This was a very poor example of a best Western plus. It is just a regular average or mediocre motel. I believe the people from the organization should visit this motel and re-rate it since saying it is a Best Western plus motel is very very misleading.

    « Help staff »

    I thought I had lost my custom Yeti cup and the staff retrieved it from outside of my door. It nice to know that there is still honest people in this world. The room had a odor in it when you first walk in. I always carry a can of air freshener for that very reason.

    « Excellent Roadside Property »

    Had to stop for the night on our roadtrip home and was hoping to find decent accomodations for the night that wasn't too expensive. This property was clean and fresh with friendly staff, nice room decor and a decent free breakfast including eggs, meat, potatoes along with the usual starches. I would stay here again.

    « Great Staff »

    Enjoyed stay - beds were great - breakfast not bad Good location - plenty of placed near hotel - weather was wonderful - mosquito's bothered us some had to use spray to get them out of the inside of the car and a lot around the outside of hotel but some of that comes from the Hurricane Matthew

    « I won't stay here again »

    The hotel is behind a gas station. The guy at the desk was nice. When I checked into the room, it smelled so terrible I went back to the desk to complain. Again, the guy at the desk was very nice. He offered to upgrade me but I had already unpacked all my things. (Stupid I know.) He gave me febreeze to spray and that helped a little. The room was fine but I was on the ground floor and the outside light was basically shining into my room. Even with both curtains pulled, it was so bright I could barely sleep. The bathroom had been recently updated and looked very nice and clean. The hotel was ok I guess, but I wasn't comfortable there so I won't stay again.

    « Great Hotel-Great value »

    This hotel is clean, modern and has great service and is a great value!!! I always stay here when I pass through from South Florida. Great Hotel-Great Location is great right off 95!!!!! I compare this to a Courtyard hotel!!

    « "Old South" replicated »

    Great accommodations. Our first time here, but not likely our last! This places looks brand new, but is decorated in the style of the old south. Veranda across the front with rocking chairs to enjoy the evening breezes. Inside, the lobby is breath-taking. Dominated by a dark wood bannister stairway to the second floor (there is also an elevator), and the look of an old plantation library. In fact, there is a small "lending library" for the guests, and a book drop to return the books. Staff pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms not huge, but comfortable. We require handicapped accessibility, and all the needs were met: raised toilet, grab bars in appropriate places, roll-in shower with a shower chair (this was not as sturdy as we would prefer, but it sufficed.) Hot breakfast, coffee pot, microwave, refrigerator w/freezer. Recommend!

    « Great Overnite!! »

    Best place to stay off of I-95..Clean, Friendly Staff and pool and hot tub are great!! Breakfast was very good, many choices and TV in breakfast room, so you don't miss the morning news. also their coffee is very good and strong.

    « Warm and inviting »

    We visted Amelia in April. We stayed in Yulee. The room was wonderful. The beds were comfortable. Good location next two restaurants and gas stations. They also offered home made cookies and popcorn. They had lemonade cold and ready. Totally comfortable stay.

    « Fernindenia visit made cheap »

    We were visiting fernidenia for the weekend saved money by staying here. Great place to stay great staff and nice breakfast also had cookies and nachos in the afternoon. It was a great stay will come back. Cheaper than staying on the beach and only 15 minutes away from fernidenia.

    « Great stop over night! »

    We stayed here on our way down to Daytona Beach. The chicken was very easy staff was friendly, the room was very spacious as well as the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and it was a quiet location. The breakfast had great choices from eggs and sausage two waffles and cereals as well as oatmeal. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Comfortable Stay, and the Kids liked it! »

    The grounds were kempt, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They have a salt water system for the pool, which is really nice for those with sensitive skin. Our room was quite spacious and setup well. Unfortunately, we were close to the elevator, and it was highly trafficked by loud inconsiderate guests. The breakfast has hot and cold selections, and was standard for a hotel. Overall it was a good visit.

    « nice time »

    Overnighter before a long trip up north. Breakfast was typical for hot / cold buffet. A bit overpriced. this was our first night of 3 different stops, other hotels offered a nicer breakfast. Beds and room were comfy.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    We had the king suite. The bed was so comfortable, I wish I had it at my house! Firm but not rock hard. The room was clean, bathroom was nice. Breakfast is the usual, not outstanding but still good & filling. Pool was small but was clean. Hot tub was tiny, didn't get in bc someone was in there but it looked clean as well. Our destination was Amelia Island. Memorial day weekend so no vacancies on island, this was the closest,about 20 min drive so no complaints. Would stay here again. Clerks were friendly.

    « Stay was great! »

    This hotel was clean and the staff were pleasant. The breakfast was good and had a good selection of food. Beds were comfy. We had a great stay. Wi Fi worked well also. I saw that they had a fitness center but we arrived late and left early so we didn't use it. Check in and out was easy as well. I would definitely stay again.

    « Worst hotel experience of my life. »

    Upon arriving at the Best Western my father and I waited at the front desk for about 5 minutes until the receptionist on duty who was watching football in the lobby finally realized that we were there. Once we finally did check in and enter our room the first thing we noticed was how extremely hot the room was. We checked the thermostat to see that it wasn't working. We called the front desk and they sent a maintenance man who replaced the batteries which seemed to fix the issue. We also noticed that the towels in the bathroom that were supposed to be fresh had brown stains on them. Later on in the night my father and I lied down to go to sleep early since we had to be up really early the next day. Unfortunately after my father had fallen asleep the thermostat once again stopped working and the room quickly rose to a extremely hot temperature making it impossible for me to fall asleep. I tried to fiddle with it myself to no avail. I went down to the front desk to ask the receptionist what could be done. I explained to him that I did not want to wake my father so no one could enter the room. The maintenance man who "fixed" the thermostat earlier had simply yanked it off of the wall and took it to repair, so I explained that I could bring the thermostat down to the front desk myself, but after the receptionist left for twenty minutes to call the manager and maintenance man he told me that they would not want me to be responsible for any damage done to the already broken thermostat. At this point I had waited for the receptionist for about 25 minutes and it was around 11:45 at this point and I had to be up at 5 the next day. I stood at the front desk all this time for him to tell me that all they could do was give me a discounted room for 70$. I asked the young man to explain to me why I should pay more because they gave me a defective room to which he had no response other than to apologize. I asked the receptionist if I could please have the manager's number and he responded by telling me that it was not available to him even though he told me he had just called him to see what they would be able to do for me. Easily the worst hotel experience I have ever had and also some of the worst customer service I have received from any industry. Please do yourself a favor and do not stay at this outdated terribly run excuse for a motel.

    « Pleasant Short Stay »

    The hotel appears to be fairly new and, as such, shows pretty impressively. Not a scenic location right off of I-95 but is a short 15 minute drive east to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Also, easy off and on to I-95. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cookies every evening with evening social hours every weekday. Breakfast was okay...pretty standard. Internet service in our room was adequate though a bit slow at times. We'd certainly stay again if in the area.

    « A pleasant stay! »

    This was our first time in a BW Plus. There were some complications with our check-in but the young man at the desk was a big help. There were fresh cookies, nachos lemonade for the guests in the lobby. Nice.Our room was large and nicely decorated. The bed and pillows were perfect. The bathroom was nice until you looked in the corners and saw dirt and grime. There is no excuse. The breakfast was very nice. The breakfast are is very cramped. Overall. A great place.

    « Good quality at affordable price »

    For the price the accommodations were nice enough, clean and comfortable at a convenient location. Quiet secure rooms and area, good breakfast selection, a number of restaurants and local sites/activities for 'see n do' or explore within a short driveing distance. Biggest down side was the bed pillows and very heavy comforter on bed,,,either just a sheet or sheet plus what felt like 30 lb comforter! Other than that, all was good

    « Double check your bill at check out ! »

    I was over charged for one night of my stay, and then told I got makeup on 3-4 wash clothes and was being charged for replacing them. The air didnt cool properly, the bathroom sink backed up, the door entrance light was burnt out, and it is a pet friendly motel, which I love pets but would like to have known this up-front so that I could have requeste a "non- pet room..... the staff were great except for the one person I delt with at time of check out who over charged me for a night stay...

    « A place with character »

    I loved this place for a 2 night stay. We got a decent rate and we were visiting friends near by. Staff friendly, pool area was good and couldn't complain. I guess this is a kind of truck stop area but it seems to be a newish hotel. Staff were nice and helpful and I would definitely stay again.

    « Great Stay »

    Customer friendly, staff very helpful, safe area to spend the night, outside is clean and pleasant, plenty of parking, easy access to I-95, great breakfast with plenty variety of food, rooms are clean, amenities are great

    « Questions? »

    The Best Western at Yulee was one of those I prefer to put in the past. The rooms are very bland and dark and the bed looked questionable. When the sheets were turned back, "surprise", a dark curly hair between the sheets! When the reception was questioned if the sheets had been changed it was very hard to get positive responce. The sheets were changed but doubts remain. However, the breakfast room and staff were very tidy and helpful

    « Great location, crummy night sleep »

    This one is kind of a dosey... very convenient location off the interstate and close to local attractions. Very pet friendly (which I enjoyed), friendly staff, and very modern and clean. But the beds... the hotel should take every mattress outside and burn them. Then to ensure that the world is truly rid of the evil that is their mattresses, the ashes should be shot into space. Stayed 3 nights, and will probably never stay at a Best Western again bc in those 3 nights I probably slept 6hours. Very uncomfortable nights stay. If I pay u $350 for 3 nights, you can afford a decent mattress. While the hotel itself was very nice, the lack of sleep totally undermined all the good things I had to say.

    « Golf and Shopping Ferendina »

    Have stayed at this hotel before.. Very clean, close to areas we visited.. Had 3 beautiful golf courses within 20 minutes of hotel on Amelia Island.. Were 15 minutes from downtown Fernendina for shopping and eating out at night..

    « BW First Coast Inn »

    The hotel is an excellent choice if you have pets. It is not 3 star but feels like a 3 star. The amenities and furnishings are top notch. The staff is very helpful and friendly. It is very easily accessible from I-95. The only thing that needs improvement is their breakfast. It is not up to the standard of other Best Western hotels. I would highly recommend this hotel but if you like a good breakfast just eat somewhere else.

    « Good value for your money »

    When you consider that there was an excellent breakfast included with the room it was a good value for the money. They pool was well maintained as well as the fitness center. The location is a well north of the city of Jacksonville but traffic was not an issue getting to where we wanted to go.

    « Above and beyond! »

    This property was clean, well decorated, and very convenient. The oversize parking was both plentiful and convenient to our room access. Plus the staff, particularly Sherry, has gone out of her way to return an item that I left in our room that is very important to me. When we spoke, she was happy to assist and is graciously setting it up to ship it to my home. This is why BW properties are my first choice when we need a hotel. And they welcome my two small dogs! Thank you Sherry!

  • 5

    My family and I have stayed here several times and will continue too. The staff is great, hotel is always very clean. Pool and Hot tub are clean and very well maintained. Another plus is there are always clean towels at the pool. We have a Great experience every time we stay!

    « Very good! »

    This was a great Inn! The breakfast was excellent, the bed and pillows very comfortable. The rooms and all other areas were very clean. The elevator was too slow; otherwise, , but I was only on the second floor, so I took the stairs. It was a great place to stay.

    « Yulee FL Best Western Plus »

    Excellent stay. Caring and professional staff. We were moving to area and needed a hotel for our pets before moving in to our new home. Services were more than adequate. A/C was not as cold in room as I prefer. Refrigerator did not get cold enough. Hotel has a great pet policy. Would recommend this hotel!!

    « Very Good Hotel »

    Overall a very good hotel. Stayed just one night as we were passing through on I-95. Our room was pleasant and quite clean. Comfortable bed. Thee room's layout was more suited to the traveling executive and overlooked the front parking lot. Could not sleep in as desire as the window only had sheer curtains that could be pulled closed - not heavier light-blocking drapes. The drapes that were there could not be pulled closed and were there for décor only. Could also also hear children running through corridor. Room was upstairs and just off the hotel's lobby, so I would request a different room next time. But it was sufficient for one night and for not having previous hotel reservations. I would still def. recommend this hotel (BW in Yulee, Fl.). :)

    « Excellent Value - Clean, comfortable, pet friendly, convenient »

    I travel from Key West to the mid-Atlantic area a few times a year. JAX is about mid-way. This hotel in Yulee is terrific. Everything you could ask for when traveling: close to I-95, has a lot of dining and shopping choices near by, is very clean, fresh smelling, welcoming, friendly, comfortable, and quiet. It is a BW Plus, so that accounts for some of it and I am so glad to have found it - I need pet friendly accommodations - because I usually stay at regular BW south of JAX off I-95 on the way up and it is horrible. Highly recommend this property.

    « Clean, Easy Stop off i95 »

    A clean mid level hotel (hard to find those these days). It was a great overnight stop for us on a road trip. It's right off i95. And, there are many good restaurants only a few miles down the street.

    « Clean & pet friendly »

    It's not about amenities on our yearly road trips...this location is comfortable, good beds, convenient on/off I-95, WiFi (Free), in room fridge w/freezer section, very clean rooms & bathroom. Panera is fairly close by, as is a grocery. As an overnight stop, this is a good one.

    « Nice and friendly »

    Everything you need, clean and convenient. Has a pool, small gym and jacuzzi, free breakfast and is close to the highway. Free cookies and nachos at night. Mostly just fast food venues surrounding it, not dine in restaurants. 15-20 minutes to the beach.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    We stayed here for 2 nights over the Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed it. The check-in process was quick and very friendly. The lobby is very well decorated and comfortable. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. I just wish hotels would get rid of the multiple stubby pillows they stack across the bed and get some good king size pillows on the beds. OK off my soap box. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with towels. The a/c worked well and kept the room comfortable. The breakfast was ok but not fantastic as advertised. :-) They did have a crock pot of oatmeal rather than the packages but I prefer grits to oatmeal. There was patty sausage, pre-formed cheese omelette and some soggy potatoes. I happen to like Missy's Kitchen here in Yulee for breakfast anyway. Will stay here again on our next visit.

    « family time. »

    This hotel is off I-95, very clean, with a comfortable, firm bed. The breakfast was yummy and good variety of food and drinks. The price was affordable. There was a gas station and restaurants close by.

    « Decent place for a night's rest »

    We have been staying here for several years on our way to Sanibel Island. It is a decent place to spend the night. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is typical hotel fare although very few cereal and fruit choices, but enough to get the day started. I normally rate this hotel as a 4 but chose to drop down to 3 because it is beginning to show some wear - carpets and furniture could use refreshing. Have said that, the place was clean which is most important to me, especially since we're just staying overnight. Decent rooms at a decent price.

    « Great stay »

    Hotel looked brand new, I was told it was 6 years old. It had more amenities than I ever would have used. Easy check in easy check out, breakfast was good, staff friendly and professional. Parking spaces were plentiful. Convenient stores and restaurant's within walking distance.

    « Clean and reasonable rate »

    My wife and I were in town looking at homes in the Fernandina Beach area. It was spring break and this hotel had not raised the rates like all the hotels near the beach. This hotel is near the interstate but only a few minutes to drive over to Amelia Island. The staff was very accommodating and the room was comfortable and clean.

    « Bad promotion and dirty hallways »

    Visited this property twice in May. The first visit was good we stayed on second floor the room was clean and comfortable. Upon checking out we were informed of the rewards card and also a $25 gift card to be used by the end of May. We signed up and returned for our second trip of which we were told that the promotion was no longer valid. Both the clerk and corporate stated they were sorry! All the promotional signs had been removed. Not a very good way to get people to return! Also, this second visit we were put on the first floor - the hallway carpet was dirty and also the upholster chair in our room! Beware of their promotions!!!

    « Needs a uplift »

    We had stopped on our way from Myrtle Beach to South Florida & it was time to stop, our one experience at a Best Western Plus was awesome! This location is showing its age & needs some attention! At check in the young man was very helpful & recommended a great location to eat. The room after getting checked in was not the best, there was water on top of air conditioner unit, I could tell some of the dry wall above had been repaired before, I placed a towel on top. During using the shower I discovered a part of the drywall was totally wet & crumbled upon checking it. The breakfast was ok but after my night it wasn't appealing. At this time I advised the young man at front desk of issues, he really seemed like it was no issue. Would never stay here again. I hope the room was shut down & water leaks handled!

    « A very clean and comfortable hotel »

    We stayed overnight here (March 2016) on our way to Amelia Island. There were no shops around but the hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. We were very impressed with their service as well (juice, coffee, tea were available in the lobby, nachos in the afternoon). This is the best 'Best Western' we've stayed in, so far. We checked-in smoothly, we were also able to check in earlier. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!

    « Clean, Convenient and comfortable »

    While traveling home from North Carolina to South Florida, we stopped here as an alternative to our usual hotel which was fully booked. It was a good experience, with friendly, helpful staff, clean, comfortable rooms and a convenient location. It as a pleasant surprise since we booked at the last minute. I would certainly recommend it, and will likely stay here again.

    « Nice place to stay, long way to restaurants »

    Clean comfortable place to stay. Easy off of 95. Spa, pool and small fitness center. Well maintained. Restaurants are at minimum 3 miles away unless you want fast food. Breakfast buffet was well kept and had the usual things. Staff was nice.

    « Last minute but pleased »

    My wife and myself decided almost at the last hour to spend the weekend in Fernandina Beach. All the hotels we considered were full and the others did't have "hot tubs"! This is February in Florida, the rates are usually higher especially in the high end hotels. Although Amelia Island has much to offer in the way of expensive hotels, this was a spontaneous , more like an economy weekend. We booked a room for 80ish bucks thinking we'll stay one night. Not expecting much we were really impressed with the staff that greeted us. They were friendly, helpful and sincere. The hotel was relatively new, rooms were better than average, comfortable, and ultra-clean. They also said we could use the hot tub as late as we pleased as long as we didn't disturb the other guests! That was a big thumbs up! The ride from the hotel was only 10 minutes to Fernandina Beach Historic Section. After a long day, we went back to the hot tub and booked another night. It's also 1/2 mile from I-95 which makes it a nice pit stop if you're traveling down I-95 and finally made it to Florida. They also serve standard hotel breakfast. We liked the do-it-yourself waffles!

    « Pleasant staqy and a terrific value »

    We called in advance and reserved our room. We've 2 dogs so finding high quality pet friendly motels is difficult. This one was top notch! Facilities were clean and fresh, the folks working there were pleasant, and the breakfast buffet was quite extensive and nicely presented. The overnight cost was extremely reasonable ... net opinion: one of the best pet friendly motels on Rt 95 between Philadelphia and Florida based on our many years of such experience.

    « Nice Stop »

    We stopped at this hotel on our way home from the south. It has relatively easy access off I-95. I say "relatively" as you do have to be attentive finding the entrance but nothing really difficult. There are a number of fast food chains in the immediate vicinity. The room was a typical BW Plus room. Very well appointed and nothing to complain about. Breakfast was again a normal BW Plus deal with adequate hot and cold choices. Check in and out were with easy and quick. All in all this was a very nice hotel and we would not hesitate to stay again

    « Really Like This Hotel »

    I have stayed there 4 times now for business and I do not even consider another place. Good value, friendly staff, good location, always have cookies in the evening, very clean.... What else could you possibly want. Thanks guys, keep up the good work. See ya again next year.

    « Okay for Overnight Stay »

    Have stayed at this hotel several times. It is convenient and clean--especially good because it is pet friendly. The breakfast was okay with eggs, sausage, and home fries. Fruit, yogurt, typical bread and pasties, as well. This facility is beginning to show its age.

    « Shrimply Nice »

    Stayed at this location to attend the Amelia Island Annual Shrimp Festival. It was a very smart move on our part, being close enough yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A little disappointed with the evening cookies the one night I was there to partake of them. The same evening the coffee maker went out(was given extra coffee packets to make my own in the room, very helpful staff)Stayed on the top floor(3) was nice and peaceful even though the hotel was booked solid. Plenty of breakfast items even though we came down towards the end of serving time.

    « Happy Birthday leah »

    My wife's had her 30th the birthday and so I called ahead to see if this hotel could help with some surprises. The hotel made a birthday card, gave us chocolates, and wine. (We don't drink, but was very thoughtful) Very impressed with their thoughtfulness and helping my wife birthday very special. Thanks guys!!!

    « Convenient and Confortable »

    Convenient location off of 95 on our trip north with great service and comfortable rooms. Staff was helpful and afternoon snack with 24hour availability of coffee was nic. Would definetly use it again

    « Never again! »

    The first room we were assigned belonged to someone else. I opened the door, the tv was on, there was trash in the trash can, and the water in the bathroom was running. The hotel gave us an upgrade for our trouble but the second room wasn't much nicer. It was in need of repair and smelled unpleasant. We won't be returning...

    « Loved the suite! »

    We stayed here on our way down to Miami and were very pleasantly surprised! It was new, clean, comfortable, easy to reserve and right off the highway. It was a great value and perferct for a small family. We loved the separate living area and the large screen tv on a hinged arm.

    « Great Hotel »

    We were looking for a place to spend a night on our way down to Miami Beach. This hotel was a great hotel and a great value. It was very clean and professionally run. The breakfast was standard but good. We loved the suite style room with a fridge and separate living space and large flatscreen tv. The internet service was good to.

    « Best Western Yulee »

    Very nice, clean, quiet, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast area is good size but could be bigger, some people had to wait for a table to have breakfast. Close to the freeway and only about 8 miles to shopping center. Coast is about 30 minutes away. Best beach nearby is Fernando Beach on Amelia Island, about 30-40 minute drive but worth it.

    « This is a new, well maintained property »

    Just stepping into the lobby gave you a sense of southern pride. There is a welcome table with a large container of lemonade for self-service and brochures listing some of the area attractions. Also the lobby contains a cozy sitting area. There is a LOT of road construction being performed around this property, but it was still possible to get to Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island. Front desk staff were polite and my reservation was handled quickly.

    « Our Choice Place »

    As we travel I-95 often between NC & FL my wife and I always stay at First Coast Inn & Suites. Aside from an affordable clean room and a fine staff, their pet policy is attractive to us as dog owners. The ease of access to I-95 and the close proximity of fine restaurants in Amelia Island and Frenandina Beach always brings us back.

    « All Good »

    All good here at this Best Western. Very nice place. Good location. Good Value. Very nice looking place. Breakfast was good. I would recommend this place for sure. Near I95 and easy ride to Amelia Island.

    « The Absolute Most Disgusting Experience! »

    One of the absolute most disgusting hotel experiences that I've ever encountered, not sure where to even begin... Let's start with me calling to cancel one of my reservations online and got no answer for two days, oh I finally arrived got to the front desk no one acknowledge my presence for about 10-15 mins, no bell to ring, nothing, another gentleman waited as well, he was fed up and left, no lie, the manager sue, not sure if her name is correct came down and finally asked how she could help and I let her know how long I waited and she replied, I was only away for 5 mins and I let it go, she was pleasant after that. Strike two, I was charged over $460 three pending transaction holds on my account as well as $132 for a reservation I called to cancel and got no answer, I'm pretty upset at this point bc it's the weekend my bank is closed no way to access my hard earned money, it gets even better, we get to the room and found a huge stain on the mattress, in which I have photos to prove it, looks like a stabbing occurred, not even sure I really want to know wth happened, back to our findings, so we decided to flip the mattress bc there were no rooms available to change to, it was prom weekend, spring break, etc... So we flip the mattress and guess what's underneath the darn mattress? SOMEONE'S DIRTY UNDERWEAR!!! I kid you not, after this I'm pretty hot, I travel for a living and stay in Marriott hotels I'm pretty spoiled when it comes to cleanliness and customer service, Marriott is amazing btw. Anywho, so I contacted the customer service for best western and I'm pretty angry at this point, the lady at customer service contacted the front desk and no one reached out to me at all, nothing, I called Saturday it's now Tuesday and still nothing, the lady at the front desk told me, I'm not sure what you want, I can only give you 10% off your room, lady! really? No customer service, no sorry for us holding up your money for the weekend, or the fact that you had to stay in a filthy, smelly, dirty mattress hotel room, no customer service having hotel. Best Western Plus, I'm an awards member and every single stay with you guys have not been a clean experience, just saying, I've said plenty. If you stay here, check your mattress from top to bottom, who knows what's living under it, I'm done!

    « Convenient Location »

    The hotel offers a comfortable and clean room with ample parking in a convenient location not far from Yulee and shopping possibilities and chain restaurants. The only minus was the breakfast, and we expect improvement the next time we visit. So do not rule this place out.

    « Excellent value »

    Great location and excellent value not far from Jacksonville. Just off the I95. We had no difficulty finding the hotel and it was close to several fast food restaurants. There did not seem to be any other restaurants nearby, even in Yulee, so were forced to eat fast food. That was disappointing.

    « Easy asscess, clean and comfortable »

    This was a positive experience for this unit, It is a clean and comfortable motel with lovely rooms and service, morning meal and evening snack. Easy on off to 95 and easy trip to the beach. Good parking with many ways to reach your room. Adequate fitness center to work the kinks out of a long drive.

    « Clean, clean, clean »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus at Yulee on 29 Feb. Everything about it was a positive, but special mention has to go to Paola C, the maid for our room. We did not meet or see her, but she obviously takes great pride in her work. The room was comfortable; desk staff were friendly and breakfast was very good. We would happily stay there again.

    « Location matters »

    Perfect for fast in and out. Being very close to Rt. 95 makes this place an excellent stop over. we love downtown Amelia Island but went to White Oak, ending at 8:30 and used this for a night on the way south. Everyone was great ... even our late check-in was respected. Breakfast is hot ... a good thing. Fake eggs are suspect but then ... McDonalds is nearby.

    « One night layover »

    Very pleasant staff and extra service with snacks and breakfast. Very good location on and off the high way. Going to breakfast early the cook was extremely friendly and gracious. Would recommend it to anyone traveling to the coast and Florida. Not very bust during the week so we had a fast exit.

    « Save a bit of money if you are considering an Amelia Island stay. »

    My wife and I stayed at the Yulee Best Western as it is in between Amelia Island and a wedding venue we had to attend. It is only 15 minutes to Amelia Island and you would pay at least double for a comparable room/amenities. It is only six years old and has been well maintained. The hotel is set quite a bit back from the expressway so there was very little noise. The room was very spacious and clean. The pillows could be better as they didn't hold their shape. The bed was fine though. Breakfast is standard for a Plus category: eggs, potatoes, bacon/sausage, waffles, etc. We would certainly go back when visiting Amelia Island again.

    « OK for a stop-over. Don't count on breakfast. »

    This was a stop-over for us on the long drive from Canada to Florida. It's close to the I-95, so that's a plus. The room was fine. About what you'd expect. The real disappointment was the breakfast. We got down to the breakfast room in plenty of time - around 8:30. There was virtually nothing left. Not even any bread to toast. There was some cold cereal and 2 containers of yogurt. Great. There were other people milling around and some had obviously arrived when there was still food, because they were finishing up. Most were wondering where the food was. We asked the person at the front desk, who said the kitchen was replenishing "as we speak." We waited some more. No food. We went back up to our room, loaded up our bags, took them out to the car, came back and checked the breakfast room again. No food. We gave up and left.

    « A Best Western that is a plus »

    This BW is a great place when driving I 95 to or from Florida. We found the rooms clean with a refreshing fragrance along with a good breakfast. They were not able to fill my request for a first floor room due to bookings but they put us close to the elevator which was just as good This is one Best Western that is on our stop at again list

    « Great hotel stay! »

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus! The room was clean and quiet, and beds were very comfortable. Staff was great. The breakfast was very good and had a nice selection of items. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

    « Stay at your own risk »

    My husband arranged for us to visit our daughter and grandchildren in Fernandina Beach for my birthday, Feb. 12 and Valentines Day as I just lost my last parent, my dad, on January 15 to help take my mind off my grief. The hotel is supposed to be non-smoking but the smell of cigarettes in the hall was so bad we nearly both had asthma attacks. It cold outside so it appears the smokers decided to smoke in the hallway to avoid being charged a cleaning fee. We had to ask the staff to change the linens the day after we checked in because the sheets did not feel or smell clean. The only cream for the coffee is half and half. No flavored creamers. Small thing maybe but important for some people. Lastly, I had a small, soft brightly colored blanket with me that was given to me by my boss and her husband with some food and other things while I was staying at the hospice house when my father was dying. When we checked out this morning the blanket got left behind by mistake. I called the hotel and spoke to Susan who said no one had been checked into that room but housekeeping said there was nothing in the room and nothing had been turned in. I insisted it had to be there and told her exactly where it was at...she said said she would check on it and call me back. She called back about 10 minutes later. She said she and two other people looked, but no blanket. So bottom line is housekeeping staff stole a blanket worth less than $10 in turns of money but priceless in terms of sentimental value. Makes you wonder what else they would steal. I am heartbroken.


    Had to attend a funeral nearby and had to stay a couple of nights. Rooms were clean and the staff was very accommodating. The afternoon social was nice and as always the cookies were fresh and delicious ! Would stay here again.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    This one of hundreds of hotel just off 95. We were blown away at the quality and service here, end to end. We will be back, for sure. KFC and McDonalds across the street, for a quick dinner. Breakfast, hit the buffet at the hotel, it is actually pretty good.

    « very convenient location, if you want to stop before you get to jacksonville. »

    outstanding room in a newer motel. pool, gym and hot, free breakfast. they also give a good military discount. we wanted to stop before we got to the by pass at Jacksonville, and this was a perfect location.

    « Wasn't all a Plus this stay »

    Fairly new property, front desk very helpful with directions, places to eat., etc. Main issues: 1 Bed sheets didn't quite fit mattress correctly and corners popped up...didn't realize that until morning after of uneasy sleep. 2 Had tiny little CFL lightbulbs, very low wattage, could not read in bed...ditto desk lamp. 3. Breakfast room way too small for facility...had to wait for table, food, etc. Didn't matter what time I tried. Check out was a breeze.

    « Room Block Booking »

    I'll start off by saying that my review is for their customer service as I was trying to book a block of rooms. I called two weeks ago to reserve the block of rooms for my wedding in April. My information was taken down and was told that the lady that handled room blocks would give me a call in the next day or two. A week later I hadn't heard anything so I called back. I was told that the room block lady would give me a call. She did call me that night and informed me she had a contract already put together and she was waiting for her manager to return from out of town the following day to get approval. ANOTHER, week later I still had not heard anything. I called once again. I was told that the same lady would give me a call. Keep in mind, I am waiting on this information to complete my invitations, so I was definitely upset when I received a call two days later and was told they already had an event going on. Like really? It takes two weeks to tell me you can't do a room block because you have an event that was probably booked before I even called the first time? I have worked at a hotel along with restaurants and am now at an accounting firm. The hotel business is all about customer service, which I something I know very well. There are BIG customer service problems here. I am not upset that they couldn't do the room block for me. I am upset because it took them numerous phone calls from me and two weeks to tell me this. I will not be recommending this hotel to any of my wedding guests.

    « Spontaneous roadtrip »

    This was the first stop of a long road trip. The lovely lady at the desk... I believe was Shirley... Let us park up front because we had our kayaks in the back of the truck. Rooms were clean and breakfast was provided. Easy to get back on the interstate and back on the road.

    « Pretty Nice Place to Stay in Yulee, FL »

    Had a great night's stay with the wife and dog in this pretty nice place to stay in Yulee, FL. The first-floor pet-friendly room was carpet-free and had a really high ceiling. Had a quiet night. Really liked the quiet surroundings with the pool and hot tub outside in the back of the place. Free breakfast was pretty good also. Overall, we left there the next morning happy and rested. Thank you First Coast Inn & Suites. We will probably be back.

    « Dirty »

    Probably one of the dirtiest hotels I have stayed in....night manager changed my room 3 times admitting that the carpets were very dirty and one of the rooms had some kind of bugs or knats...very disappointed

    « ++Inn »

    Nicest Best Western we've stayed in so far, as far as décor and room amenities. Disappointed at noise level, couple across hall had a small dog that yapped and yapped which set our small dog off! This has never occurred before as we always travel locally with our small dog. It was too late and we were too tiered to call the front desk. Otherwise all else was A-Okay. We did not take time for breakfast, so can't rate there. Will not hesitate to stay again, but will request 3rd floor toom.

    « If you need a pleasant night to hit the road...Bingo! »

    The hotel is located 30 seconds from I95 with a Burger King right in front of it. Everything was excellent, the rooms are very spacious and the bathroom was very nice and clean. Beds were awesome, the breakfast was very good and the staff was very courteous and helpful. Thanks!!!

    « Best hotel in Yulee. »

    Made an unexpected stop here on our way back from up North. This is by far the best Best Western hotel property. Amazing rates, food was great. Nice that they were offering nachos and cookies. Beds were comfy and the rooms were spacious.

    « Nice place to spend the night when traveling. »

    My wife and I were traveling from our home in South Carolina to Fort Lauderdale to catch a cruise and spent the night here. It is a nice, clean hotel with a friendly staff. It is far enough away from the interstate highway so that noise was not an issue. It is close enough to avoid wasting time traveling. There are restaurants relatively close by, we drove 6 miles to a shopping center with several chain restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Right off freeway with good rates »

    After checking several other hotel properties we decided to try the Best Western in Yulee. Because the rates were good and many of the reviews were also. We were pleasantly surprised. Breakfast was find with several choices. We had booked on line but had difficulty getting the additional 10% off by doing so. When I mentioned this at check out the desk clerk said I must have read it incorrectly but he did give us a $5.00 off which was ok. We would stay again if the rates were lower than surrounding hotels.

    « Comfortable rooms, good rates, accept pets »

    We chose this hotel originally because they accept pets, but the nice rooms, comfortable beds, good rates and perfect location for us. We return (family in the area in the Navy) because they do all of this well. I was not sure about Best Western being the best choice for us the first time we stayed. We are sure now.

    « me and Jojo »

    Me and my 4 legged friend had a great rest on our drive to Fort Myers. Clean and no hassles. Booking was a little hassle. I was put on indefinite hold by the gentleman at the counter and then hung up on. Other than that everything was smooth sailing.

    « Not what expected :( »

    Beds awful. Air conditioner loud one window broken not able to open. Breakfast selection poor. Breakfast room too small. Attendant observed not using any disinfectant to wipe down breakfast tables and using a towel that ended up in his pocket and who knows where else.

    « quiet & new »

    This is right off the highway. Very quiet location. We haven't eaten the breakfast because we choose not to eat the choices offered. However, the coffee is fine. The staff is professional and nice. This hotel is pet-friendly which is a huge plus for us.

    « Excellent stop »

    Have stopped here previously. Very comfortable stay. Staff and facilities excellent. Plan to continue stopping here in the future. Location is convenient and well worth the stop. Breakfast is good, and satisfying. Room was clean and neat. Definitely would recommend a stay to explore Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Keep up the good work.

    « Excellent employees »

    Not only was this a very clean and comfortable hotel, but the employees were extremely helpful. On 2 different occasions staying at this location both night clerks recommended great places to eat and gave us maps and directions.

    « Pet Friendly Plus »

    Great place to stay if you are traveling with a pet. Everthing was super clean. Staff very friendly to pets. Nice area to walk dogs. Wooden floors in first floor rooms were an excellent idea. Nice updates for bathroom.


    Although the decor of the hotel was lovely, the room's air conditioning was broken and we weren't told till we unpacked our bags and I was rushing to get ready for a family wedding. We had to quickly shower, switch rooms all before leaving so we didn't have to move things late in the evening. New room's air conditioner, although set at 60, felt like 80 and sticky as well. Breakfast was average, we saw no one clean tables after people got up, bananas were being brought out green. Although not a horrible experience, considering how important a weekend it was for us, we were a bit disappointed. We also didn't see cookies or snacks at night either so they must have been in a special location and the front desk didn't notify us where it was. As new guests, I feel there should be signs for things like that. After a long night of wedding festivities, it would have been nice to have some snacks as we sat by the pool with our family and relived the fun night.

    « Stay somewhere else »

    Bad Bed, AC unit very loud and did not work correctly. Not good breakfast service. Room not well cleaned between first and second night. Good location but not a good value when compared with other hotels we have stayed at in the past. Decided to give Best Western a try and if this is what we should expect from this brand will not be trying another Best Western.

    « Good Night's Sleep »

    Really great staff here - professional and friendly. Greeted warmly. Front desk person went up to our room just to make sure it was perfect before we went in - it had not been marked as cleaned in their system. Once we went in we noticed that everything was indeed in order and all had been cleaned and taken care of. Comfortable beds and good shower. Lots of choices for breakfast in the morning. Other than the hallways smelling a little funky everything was fine. Maybe some money spent on new carpets would clear this up. Close to lots of restaurants and only 15 minutes to wonderful Amelia Island.

    « Pleased »

    Clean outside and in, friendly staff, and convenient for my needs. Quiet area, easy access to interstate. I have stayed in Best Westerns in a lot of states and I don't remember any bad experiences.Not my first stay and won't be my last.

    « Stank Place! »

    Walked in the place immediately smelled like a dumpster. We wanted to walk back out but it was very late & we had my small kids with us. The shower was stopped up. The room air conditioner was loud & had a mildew smell. We asked to change rooms but the other rooms were much worst. (stains on sheets etc..) We originally booked for 2 nights but we only stayed for 1 night. The whole entire place gave me the creeps. We were scared to sleep on the beds. We left 7am the next morning. Do yourself a favor and avoid this nasty smelly place! The staff is probably writing positive reviews

    « Clean and Quiet! »

    Stayed here for a Friend Reunion recently, beautiful lobby!! Checked in and was told about the desserts in the lobby, happy hours times and times for breakfast. Went up to room and noticed right away the A/C didn't work. The Front desk clerk immediately moved me to another room, right next door so it wasn't so inconvenient and brought me up the key! 2nd room all was well and very clean! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through the area and it was only a 15 minute drive to Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island.

    « Nice Place - Second Time Staying there within the last 6 months »

    A weekend getaway as well as a semi-business trip. The front of the hotel reminds you of a Bed & Breakfast it's quaint, has a porch with rocking chairs (reminds me of grandma's house), lemonade and chocolate chip cookies upon arrival. The rooms were nice spacious and for the most part quiet. There was a wedding party there but for the most part it was fine. The only negative was that we kept getting locked out of our room. After it kept happening the clerk had finally came up to our room to figure out the problem. It was determined the battery in the lick needed changing.

    « Comfortable and Relaxing »

    Overall it was a very nice stay,cheap and clean I would recommend this hotel for business tripp or 2 night stay High speed internet ,the gym a little small but nice and clean... So Enjoy your Trip!!!.

    « stop over waitng on house we rented. »

    Went to Florida to meet up with Family for a little family reunion with my son who is serving over in Cuba right now. The hotel was very clean , and staff was very helpful and nice. Only issue was the internet didn't seem very good with the laptops everyone took.

    « Musty and Hot »

    we checked in late our room never cooled lower than 75 even with temp set at 70. Bare spots on carpet and we had a " spa " room . Breakfast was good . No attendant when we checked out . I refilled the coffee because it was made up but no one came to put it out .

    « Clean and friendly »

    Perfect stay, everyone made you feel welcome and room was clean. Breakfast offering was very good. The staff was very friendly and welcomed us with a smile. We felt at home through out our stay. The hotel grounds and facilities were well maintained and clean.

    « Great stay with our dog »

    Hotel was very clean! Nachos and cookies were a nice treat! Only concern was the hot tub was not working.... Would definitely stay here again... Pool was beautiful! Great stop on our journey to the Keys.... Air conditioning was noisy in the room but worked well...
